Was Glenn being poisoned?

If you have been a fan of Glenn for the last few years, you are familiar with some of the health problems he has faced – chief among them being his neuropathy. After having visited some of the best doctors in the world, there was no obvious conclusion as to the root of the problem. But a recent trip to Carrick Brain Center in Dallas might have changed that. For years, doctors have said that Glenn’s symptoms mirror those of someone who is being poisoned, and, as it turns out, that might actually be the case.

“On a personal note here I wanted to bring something up that the boys are going to have just a great time just torturing me for the rest of my life. I have been going to the Carrick Brain Center because I have been looking for something that has been bothering me for quite some time that stemmed from my neuropathy,” Glenn explained on radio this morning. “So they ran all these tests and they meet with me yesterday, and they said, ‘Well, basically, you are being poisoned… Food is poisoning you.’”

Ok, so not exactly poison. Glenn explained that according to the doctors he has spoken to, his immune system has turned against itself and it interprets certain food and other environmental things as a poison and this causes a series of problems most times manifesting in inflammation and pain.

So how does he get better?

To make a very long story short, the best course of action to treat Glenn’s symptoms is to put him on an extremely strict diet that essentially cuts out all sugar and grains, greatly restricts the types of fruits and vegetables he can eat, and allows for meat only from grass-fed, hormone-free animals.

Glenn proceeded to run through the mile-long list of what he will no longer be allowed to eat and the very short list of what is acceptable:

    Glenn, sounds like you will be on the Paleo diet. I was very sick with a thyroid disease and The Paleo Diet improved my health, I feel great! Read up on inflammatory foods that result in autoimmune diseases. Think of Rand Paul as the Paleo diet, good for you, and Obama is the high sugar, inflammatory diet, bad for you, might give you some encouragement! Just do it for you, you will lose your sugar cravings and look forward to eating the good-for-you foods, be patient, it will be worth it when you feel great!

    It sounds a bit like Rick Warren’s detox plan in The Daniel Plan – a few more restrictions (nuts and beans), but quite similar. There are some yummy menus in his book and his cookbook. Here are the names of the people involved in creating the plan, according to the Daniel Plan website:

    Jenny Ross is the internationally recognized chef, author, educator and force behind Jenny Ross Living Foods, Raw Basics detox meal programs and nationwide grocery
    product line 118 Degrees; Mareya Ibrahim is The Fit Foodie; Robert Sturm is one of California’s premier chefs and food designers; Sally Cameron is a professional chef, publisher of the popular food blog, A Food Centric Life; and Tana Amen is a nurse and NY Times bestselling author of The Omni Diet.

    And the Paleo Workout is a perfect complement to the Paleo Diet. Hard physical exercise including weight lifting transforms the body chemistry to absorb and process the foods we eat instead of letting them rot in the gut or poison us.

    Glenn’s back problems are also a symptom of insufficient hard exercise. They are best relieved by back-bending and squat-lift exercises, among other core-strength builders.

    I wish I could be Glenn’s fitness trainer. It would be even more comical to have The Gunny do it. :-)

    Welcome to Paleo, Glenn! Got rid of my seasonal asthma in 3 days! Get yourself a “JERF” teeshirt–”Just Eat Real Food”. Dr. Chris Kresser’s book “The Paleo Solution” should be your new best friend. We raise our own chickens and buy pastured beef from a local farmer. My husband and I are in our 60s and take no prescription drugs whatsoever. Forget the government’s “food pyramid”– it’s a “death” pyramid.

    Hey Glenn, You were asking for a chef to cook for you. I am not a chef but I am a darn good cook and I know how to cook with a limited ingredient list. I would love to come to TX and cook you up some appetizing food with your new diet. I also know how to raise the chicken and beef (organic) your diet requires. I don’t know how to contact you in the real world. I am on Facebook and listen to your program on DISH TV. I know you have high security, and getting in touch with you is problematic. No matter what, I hope for the best for you and yours. God bless you.

    The hardest part about thatt diet sounds like it’ll be getting away from high fructose. It’s in EVERYTHING. Even things you wouldn’t think of. Thank goodness you live in a place that gets hot, all that fruit, veggies and salad sounds very cooling. The meat part sounds like you’re going back to cave people days. All in all it sounds like a really good, healthy way to eat. Also kinda Bible-based as well seeing as you’ll be eating from God’s vast storehouse of living food. I’ve heard that the healthiest foods are on the periphery of grocery stores, It shouldn’t be that hard to find stuff, there IS a lot to choose from even on such a short list. The cravings will be the worst part but after those get finished it should be smooth sailing from there on out. Maybe we all can join in that diet. Heck, if they is such a thing as global warming we’ll all be eating the way you will. Didn’t Mrs. Imus have you doing a diet really similar to that one? You could ask her for chef recommendations as well as asking us.

    I don’t think Glenn will have any problem sticking to the diet. I kept having extreme pain that would show up and mysteriously disappear…The doctor sent me to a rheumatoid specialist….after a thorough examination he informed me that I did not have RA or any form of arthritis…tell that to my body. So I began reading everything I could get my hands on…the doc had given me a diagnosis that meant nothing…polymyalgia…I finally gave up chicken as it is an inflammatory meat as is turkey…it helped a great deal but I was still having to soak my hands in hot water every morning to get them going…I finally read Dr Davis’ two books…I immediately gave up all wheat products and those things that had gluten in them…Within three weeks I was pain-free…It was such a relief…no more swollen hands, no more aching body…believe me, Glenn will stick to the diet. When you have neuropathy or any type of constant pain, it wears you down and tires you out. Life is a drag…when you can do something to make the pain go away, it’s a blessing….He will just have to eat to live and not live to eat…I eat organic fruits and veggies and organic or grass fed beef…chicken occasionally. I am healthier than people 1/2 my age….Neither my husband nor I are on prescription medications…Glenn will find someone who can follow his diet plan who will turn out delicious meals..coconut oil is so versatile, as is coconut…I use coconut milk in my smoothies for breakfast…He’ll be so healthy and energetic he won’t know what to do with himself….Good Luck Glenn….You’re about to feel so much better.

    We are breathing Fukushima radiation. Not to mention the other plants (Hanford, etc.), that are leaking radiation in our air, water, and soil. Our fish swim in those waters. The animals eat from that soil, not to mention our food is grown in it. We eat GMO food. Cabbage is crossed with scorpion venom, so heaven only knows what the rest of our foods are crossed with??? Thanks Monsanto, you butt-wipes! And now they also want to spray our crops with the same crap that was used in Agent Orange. And you have to go to a doctor to find out why foods are poisoning you? They saw you comming! I don’t think there is a cure. But…..best of luck.

    sounds like what happens over time from eating GMO. Food allergies and leaky gut are the result. Then your immune system jumps in where it should not.

    I was hoping Glenn would go to someone who would get him eating Paleo. His symptoms and issues are common and the solution is surprisingly simple (not necessarily easy…especially for us carb-addicts). The grain and chemical-based food supply is toxic for all of us, not just Glenn. The most helpful resource to connect the dots is a book called, “It Starts with Food”.

    For the best veggies ever just squeeze some garlic in your water and steam them for 4 minutes. Veggies taste great and are not bitter this way. They need no sauce or butter, just a little sea salt. This way they are almost sweet! Grass fed beef is wonderful. Coconut oil and apple cider vinegar make a great dressing for salads and coconut oil is great for cooking. Best of health to you. The hardest part will be feeling as though you are deprived. Take that to the Lord as that is nothing but lie based thinking and will undermine what you need to do to get and stay healthy.

  • Alex

    Glenn, you are wise to treat this autoimmune disease through diet and nutrition and not drugs/chemicals. One of my wife’s closest friends has such a disease (lupus). Her doctor wanted to put her on steroids, which would have eventually killed her (they damage the kidneys and liver). She chose to go to a naturopath instead and totally changed her diet (she is a gluten-free vegan – no grains, dairy, sugar, red meat, or processed food; she occasionally has organic fish or chicken). After five years, she is essentially cured. All her lupus indicators are down, and she feels great. A friend of hers who was diagnosed with lupus around the same time she was is dead today. It takes discipline, but you can do it with God’s help! We will pray for you.

  • Dr Joe

    Glenn, I am a chiropractic neurologist, former college faculty and textbook author/editor. This is probably not the correct forum, but my
    wife found this article on the “Carrick Brain Institute” on her Facebook, and I
    am compelled to try to reply to you personally.

    First, while I know nothing of your health, the dietary advice you have received is likely to help you considerably. I find it helps most people. A true pioneer on the science of diet and brain inflammation is Dr. David Perlmutter. I would suggest that you visit his website; it is loaded with usable, easily understandable information.

    However, this is not the purpose of my communication. Instead I have contacted you simply to offer you the truth. I do this only because I believe in my heart
    that you actually seek the truth and I care about you enough to think that you
    should know. Besides, Truth lives at The Blaze, right?

    I believe that there are things that you should know about Dr. Ted Carrick. In my humble opinion, sir, his rise in the public eye is not a reflection of his accomplishments, but a condemnation of our system. As you used to say all the time, “Please, show me where I am going wrong”.

    Of course, you are a busy man and there are far more important matters in the world right now than chiropractic neurologists, so I understand if you let this one go. Stick to the diet for a while and see what happens. I wish you and your family only the best in life and health. I am constantly amazed by your energy, your enthusiasm and your prolific accomplishments. You are a good man with a good message. I am not a religious man, but god bless you Glenn. We need you.

    We are dealing with the same issues with our 8 year old daughter… she has started seeing a speciialist to find out what exactly is wrong, we are still waiting for test results. Right now we have started her on a very minimal diet of what we know she CAN have, and adding things gradually through trial and error. She knows within minutes if she can eat something because of the stomach pain… and of course the list of what she can’t have overwhelms what she can have… your list would be a buffet at the moment, so count your blessings. It breaks my heart as she turns down foods that she loves at family get togethers and church functions while weighing in her own little mind of if it’s “worth it” to eat verses the pain… she calls it her “birthday present from the devil” because that was the day she noticed the issues (probably from the birthday cake and sugar)… and always with a smile on her face. My grocery budget is $400 a month for a family of 6 and we make it work. I can certainly give your wife lots of ideas :) maybe post a list of what you can eat and let people submit recipes for you… no need for a chef, just a little extra prep :)

    This is becoming more common than people realize. Autoimmune diseases are not easily treated and can lead to other problems in the body. My daughter and I have been diagnosed in the last few years but it is only genetic if you are susceptible and it is triggered to switch a chromosome on the DNA chain. Tests for autoimmune diseases should be more widely used in diagnostics….You just might be surprised.

    Several years back, I was having massive problems, IBS, fibromyalgia, foggy brain, pain, pain and numbness in feet, couldn’t fly without becoming sick, panic attacks, etc. for someone always healthy and active, this was horrible. Several doctors would toss things out to see what stuck but nothing helped. So I started a massive hunt for answers.
    I had my hair tested, and several things showed up, mercury being one. I stopped using Splenda, the stuff is poison. I did a colon cleansing and in less than a week, no more IBS, after 10 years suffering. I started on B12 and the stinging and pain left my feet after a month. I take D3 and it helps a lot. I started on oral Chelation I got from a great company and the numbness left as well as improved vericose veins. It is completely safe, same ingredients are used in some baby food even. It is also good for cleaning out the arteries. Many drs. Will not agree, since they make nothing from the supplement. The Chelation is a heavy metal detox also.
    Here is the big one, I found taking Chlorella, a broken cell from Japan supplement, made from the ocean and totally safe, built up my immunity to where I can now fly anywhere without becoming sick. It also cleans our system from toxins, a huge culprit that does so much damage. I did a heavy metal detox it’s two caps a day for one month. Within a short time, I was feeling so much better. I still have the fibro, but I know my pain triggers and treat with Aleve. My life is back and I am a happy person. Also another poor health culprit damaging our systems is an overload of yeast in our system. I couldn’t believe the damage it can cause. I found an amazing company that helped me so much and answered so many questions.
    Reading up on reputable sites can help so much. Good luck.

I found it in Turmeric and Bromelain. Bromelain is an enzyme found naturally in pineapple and since taking a daily dose (found in pill form at GNC) and eating fresh pineapple I am happy to report I have not had any advil in 8 years. I initially took Turmeric too but found I did not need to continue it to meet my desired pain relief. please try it to see if it works for you as well. God’s speed to good health.

No sugar, no carbs, no grains. It is not easy but it is doable. I am only supposed to eat meat and certain vegetables. Your list actually has more vegetables than mine…I envy you. You can even eat fruit. I have lost almost a hundred pounds, but now have stopped and am getting very frustrated. Don’t know what to do now. I am one of the ‘poor’ people who can’t afford a chef. But I guarantee you that somehow I am going to stay on this diet and, hopefully, overcome my plateau. If I can do it….YOU can too….

    It continues to amaze me how many people are being diagnosed with (or self diagnosing) a food allergy of some sort. I had chronic joint and stomach pain. For years I saw doctors who told me all sorts of things including one that decided I was probably imagining the pain and would ‘grow out of it’. After becoming a mom I knew I couldn’t be the mother I wanted to be and continue in such pain. I began searching for an answer myself which led me to discover my wheat sensitivity. The book “Wheat Belly” was a great source for me to understand why my body couldn’t handle eating gluten as much as practically everyone else I knew. Glenn, I’m so glad for you that you found your answer. Once you get into the habit of eating differently, it does get easier. Good luck.

    Glenn, you will be okay….I have helped hundreds of people to eat very similar to this diet and they end up loving food much more….your body is obviously fighting a major yeast infection – once those foods are removed and your symptoms start improving (it will be fairly quickly) – it will fuel your dedication to your new lifestyle – you really have no idea how bad you have been feeling for so long…..changing your perspective of food as medicine to heal your body, it will be surprising how you will embrace these changes. Following you for years and seeing your transformation from an addiction of alcohol to sobriety – I know you have the “RIGHT STUFF”. BTW we are so glad to have you in Texas and glad you found the “Cowboys” that will bring you back to health. I have a sneaky suspicion that you will use your diagnosis to help millions of others who suffer on a daily basis from the poisoning from our American Food Industry. Prayers and love sent your way!

    I would like to add my two cents worth. I’ve been on a diet called Fat Smash. It is my favorite diet and works awesome! :) It consists of beans, rice, veggies, and fruits. However, being on this diet, does cause belly pain! Until I take Beano (hee hee)!

    Boy, it has really help improve many, many things in my life. But not only a good diet helps, but exercise, and the Word! Yep, I speak over my body the Words that God has spoken. I Peter 2:24 and Isaiah 53:5! :) AND also the scripture that my youth is renewed like the eagles …and many more! And although eating healthy foods, exercising, and doing everything that you can do in the natural….the best word I have found is feeding upon the “spiritual Word”. It has a TON of meat to eat and because of Christ, I am free from pain, sickness, and disease!!! :)

    may we ask what it is the rare disease that you have?

    Praying for you Glenn. Our lives were turned upside down last December when my son’s severe food allergies were diagnosed. He was having horrible vomiting fits and would writhe on the ground in pain. I never thought food could be the culprit. It turns out that most of what we’d been eating acted like poison to his body too. We’ve made major changes, and life is so much better. Praying for you Glenn. You can do this!

    hey im gonna be growing my own garden this year. Send me an email ill have field fresh veggies this year.

  • Melissa Sprague

    Glenn I went to the Macrobiotic diet school called the Kushi Institute and honestly your list sounds exactly like what they tell you to eat. Very traditional foods. They are into sea salt and olive oil. No herbs, nightshades, or chemicals of any kind. Also check out Sally Fallon and the Weston Price Foundation. Weston Price was a dentist that traveled the world to study what people in isolated culture eat and how it affected their teeth, facial bone structure and overall health. They are really into Coconut oil, olive oil and grass fed organ meats and saturated fats. Something to check out is if you soak the grains and beans then maybe you can eat them. That is how traditionally grains and beans were prepared. I know it is gross tasting but I would eat organ meats a few times a week if I were you because your options are so limited and they are very nutritious. Hope you read this and it helps. Oh also!!! check out farmmatch.com for organic foods and natural meats. Also, the Weston Price Foundation has chapters all over the country.

    Glenn! check out NAET.com It is a program to desensitize you to those foods that bother you! Had my son on a restrictive diet until we did the treatments. They totally help. Saved me from cooking all that crazy stuff on the special diet. Please take care of yourself.

    This sounds like over reaction of doctors.

    I would wager that more fruits, even the bananas that they claim no to, veggies, greens, eliminate glutton, lean meat once or twice per week, and cut out all the processed foods.

    Why don’t you have the Low Histamine Chef on your show?

    Also, start reading up on Mast Cell Activation Disorder and Histamine Intolerance. No more meds to treat the symptoms. Repair your gut.

  • Jean Schneider Londergan

    Glenn, Look into the Gaps Diet. http://www.gapsdiet.com Being on strict diet is not easy. You will start to feel so much better once you have eliminated certain foods and figure out what you can and can’t have. Eating healthier foods will help you feel better. And Yes, Coconut Oil is very healing! Bone broth is great too! But you need eliminate the other chemicals that are poisoning you! Its the normal everyday cleaners, detergents, perfumes, colognes, candles, etc. Get rid of them. Find products that are petroleum free and fragrance free.
    Thank you for all you do, God Bless!

    Looks like a low FODMAP diet. Basically foods with lower fructose than glucose. My 6 year old was on this diet. Turns out had a small intestine bacteria infection. Better now but still cannot tolerate gluten,dairy,too much fruit, or high fructose corn syrup. Hope you feel better soon Glenn. The standard American diet is poison literally!

  • Ty McNab

    Glenn,
    I have epilepsy and at age 12 was having what the doctors called “static seizing” 50 + per day. My body was shutting down from a weakened immune system and an overload of anti seizure medicine cocktails. A change to a strict diet and adding supplements such as wild salmon oil, gaba, flax-primrose and a handful of others helped me get back to myself. BEST OF LUCK AND KEEP IT UP it will be tough in the beginning but the craving for the junk food aka “Average American Diet” will slowly go away.

  • Sandy Caruso

    We do too. Only we have our own Jersey milk cow, chickens which lay fertile eggs, and our own meat raised with no hormones or steriods. NEVER do we eat pork or any shellfish. Lots of fresh fruit and veggies in season or stuff I have bottled or frozen. Raw honey instead of white processed sugar, non GMO natural white wheat flour for our home made bread…(Wheat Montana has it’s own seed) My husband is 71 and I’m 67 and neither are on medication. No high blood pressure or cholesterol problems. IT does make a difference. We can’t stand to eat out. The food tastes awful and makes us sick, especially the meat. Soda pop is NOT allowed in our home. It is deadly.Glad to hear others are waking up and understanding the need for REAL food.

  • Casey Smith

    Glenn, you need to read “The Paleo Approach” an excellent resource to the autoimmune protocol that it sounds like the doctors have put you on. It was written by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, AKA The Paleo Mom. I look forward to you being a champion in this new dietary revolution. You will start to see how our dear government has screwed us over in this area, too, beyond Michelle Obama and Michael Bloomberg. Your influence will help so many people suffering from in diagnosed autoimmune symptoms. Thank you for all you do and I know that you will heal if you change your diet. I have personal experience with this diet changing my life. God bless you, Glenn!

    Glen, your story sounds way to familiar. The American diet is indeed poisoning us. Do the prescribed diet and get involved with doTerra essential oils. Using these oils will help you heal your body and get rid of all the inflammation that is causing your illness. Do the research…. It is God’s gift of nature.

  • Sharon Stamos Schauer

    Please make sure you don;t have any infections that are causing your immune system to over react!! I have been very ill for three years and found out I have lyme disease and a few co-infections! I was first thought to have an autoimmune disease! Please get thoroughly tested by a lyme literate doctor!!

  • Erin

    It sounds like you need a stricter approach than just standard paleo, the list you rattled off sounds closer to the autoimmune protocol paleo approach. I use that to manage my raynaud’s, psoriatic arthritis, and psoriasis. It can be overwhelming when you look at all the foods you “cannot” eat, but I promise you it is worth it. You likely have gut disbiosis {as you cannot have autoimmunity without a leaky gut}, your first priority is to heal your gut. Anti inflammatory foods, nutrient rich, whole, REAL foods. You’ll feel amazing once your body adjusts. And it is not just foods! Environmental triggers, stress, and SLEEP are so very important as well.

    I wish you well, Glenn. Autoimmunity is a crazy ride. Oh, I also recommend The Paleo Approach by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne – it is a fantastic resource for those ready taking control of their health.

    Back in October I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. The cancer was already spread into. my lymph nodes. I believe that GOD had been telling me to not eat sugar, white flour, pork,coffee, and steer clear of man made artificial additives to the food. I have been on chemo and this type of diet my Dr. Says I’m a miracle. The cancer has shrunk to barely disernable.

    Glenn, I have been there with my wife as 3 years ago she got sick and to make a long story short it ruin my bank account, my business etc…as we didn’t have “sick insurance”! 680.00 creams (the size of medium tooth paste) to spread all over her body we have to buy one every 3-4 days!!! No doctor could find why. Finally I took her to an Integrative medicine doctor and in 2 month she was back.
    You have a great investigative team; put them to work and find the truth about the Monsanto type and their GMO scheme. Gluten??? The original wheat is a 14 chromosomes organism (Check Eincorn wheat), but the one in your bread and doughnut is 64 chromosomes (GMO)!!!
    You provably have a good team of doctors but the best one of all is our father in heaven. So go to your bible and read Leviticus 11, by yourself. But if you have trouble with the “New Testament” and Acts 10 or the writings of Paul, just reply and I will guide you to real truth of the matter(without preaching or trying to convert you in someone like me)

Please get an Igenex test (I have absolutely no financial gain…I’ve just lived a nightmare before getting accurately diagnosed. If you contact Ilads.org they can help you find a doctor that has expertise in the area..DO NOT waste your time with any non lyme literate doctor…at least until you get tested!

    back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with
    everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to
    someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell
    caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type
    that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the
    spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be
    okay before four days, that my ex will return to me before four days, he
    cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex
    called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that
    he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return
    to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was
    how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made
    promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of
    help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful
    spell caster, DR OJEFOR who helped me with my own problem and who is

    caster, his email is (drojeforspellcaster@gmail.com }
    you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or

    (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
    (4) You want women/men to run after you.

    Wouldn’t it have been easier for them to give you a list of things you can eat? Seems like a much shorter list. LOL I guess one of the common things on the “no-eat” list has something to do with heavy metal poisoning due to the “no canned food” and “low mecury” fish. If they had ruled out cilantro, that would have been the end. There is no point in living if you can’t have cilantro.

    I have had cancer and I only eat organic veggies and very little organic meat, as when one gets sick it is because their immune system has broken down. Seems to me your doctors are right on target. I know you will feel better and this will save your life. I only eat foods for my blood type.

  • LaDona Lane

    Glenn,
    As a Health Coach Professional, I would suggest you find a Health Coach that will work with your Physician. Most physicians do not have the training in treating illness with food. They tend to use the US My Plate, Pyramids, and USDA that are funded by the big sugar, milk, and processed foods industries. (The very things that are poisoning you.) I would encourage you to seek out Joshua Rosenthal, Founder, Director on Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I was ill all the time and no one could or would give me answers except eat better. There are 100′s of diets out there, what you need is a person who is trained and able to help you build a diet that you and your body can agree with. This is called bioindividuality. A Certified Health Coach can help you with cravings, sugar addiction, Contracting and Expanding foods. I know without a doubt becoming a Health Coach saved my life. A book to read to help you understand some of this is called Integrative Nutrition – Feed your Hunger for Health & Happiness by Joshua Rosenthal. You are great at exposing truth, do the research your life depends on it. God Bless you Glenn! Keep on Keeping on!

    I am there right now and have been for about two years. Your list of bad foods sounds a lot like mine. The thing that saved me for cooking was Emeals.com-Dave Ramsey’s sponsor. They have a Paleo meal plan with a shopping list that worked really well and I didn’t feel hungry or deprived like I did when I first was trying to figure out how I was going to feed myself and my family. Leaving out the bad foods worked really well. I lost a lot of inflammation and regained energy. I was also told that in a while, I could have the blood test done again and perhaps be able to add more foods back into my diet later.

  • Jeff Sturm

    Glenn, I have had pain and inflammation in my body for years and I thought it was just old age. I read a book called The Inflammation Syndrome and had a test done for blood serum allergy reactions (Immuno 1 Bloodprint from Immuno Labs). I found that I was allergic to 18 things – eggs, milk, cheese, avacado, banana, yeast, wheat, soy, cane sugar, etc. I have gotten rid of those foods in my diet and for the last six months have been virtually pain free. My doctor has also found that I have Hashimotos Disease where my immune system is attacking my thyroid, possibly due to the allergens and excessive histamines in my system. No word on that being fixed by the diet yet, but he is optimistic that over time it will improve. My wife is so impressed with my improvement, she had the tests done and she has eliminated her allergen foods as well. It gets a little creative around meals since our allergies aren’t a perfect match, but we survive. My message for you is that there are ways to eat without all the stuff that is hurting you, you will feel better, and your condition will improve. My wife is my source for what to cook and eat, and she and I are constantly finding new things that are okay for us and delicious. She just made a chicken fried steak last night with gravy and potatoes that was better than I have ever had…AND IT WAS HEALTHY. Change is difficult, but there is light at the end of the tunnel, just stay the course. Blessings to you.

    Stop eating crap. Avoid GMOs and pesticides. My wife and I have both become chemically sensitive. Her in the late 1980′s from pesticide exposure and me from industrial chemicals. We must both eat non gmo and organic, otherwise we suffer many symptoms, some like what you are talking about. Also look at the household chemicals you use. by inhailing and/or touching these products with your skin, your body absorbs them into your tissues and you become toxic. You are describing many of the things we both experience. Glenn, now you have a lot of homework to do in order to make yourself feel better. Get to it!

  • Micah Auler

    Hey Glenn! I have Multiple Sclerosis. I went on a downhill course with my disease for about 2 years, until I read about eating a clean, anti-inflammatory diet. I’ve been on a gluten-free dairy-free sugar-free diet for 3 years now, and feel great! I feel better now than I did before I came down with MS. I want to stress that it is also very important to have a good exercise program, in order to help your body heal and further reduce inflammation levels.

    Beverly, US Wellness Meats sells pastured beef and they ship too. http://www.grasslandbeef.com. We live in VT and have lots of farms that sell beef, lamb, etc. Your state dept. of agriculture should be able to put you in touch with a network of farmers who sell pastured meats. One of the best places to check are weekly farmers’ markets. You can get wild-caught tuna and salmon in cans in health food stores but even our local Shaw’s market sells wild fish. Good luck!

Plus, the homemade stuff tastes FANTASTIC. I don’t think I can ever enjoy store-bought kraut again.

  • Carol Grove DeSalvo

    Glenn, Read the book “Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health” by cardiologist Dr. William Davis. It will open your eyes to a multitude of health issues related to current day wheat and the science behind his theory. For forty years my husband thought he was lactose intolerant. Turns out, his health issues, were not related to dairy products and resolved themselves with the elimination of wheat. He now eats ice cream, cereal (as long as it does not contain wheat) and milk and cheese. This book also associates the increase of many diseases on the rise in the last thirty years to what is now world-wide genetically altered wheat. Worth the read if only for research purposes. I dare you to PROVE ME WRONG! Love you and want you healthy.

  • Beanlet

    My brother had a similar problem. They put him on a 4 day rotating diet (couldn’t eat anything more than once in four days) until his body calmed down. Then they found he was allergic to soy. Soy in any form, oil, flour, etc. And soy is in everything, just check out the labels. Fortunately, his wife loves to cook so everything is from scratch. Best of everything to you, Glenn. Get well soon.

    Glenn, I’ve been on a diet very similar to this, but I do eat brown rice and quinoa. It works. I cut my pain meds down from 4/day to 1/day or less. Be sure to add lots of essential fatty acids and some anti-inflammatory herbs. Within a few months, you’ll notice quite an improvement. You will learn to adjust. After a period of time, you’ll feel so much better you’ll want to stay on the diet because when you go off you feel sick again. There are plenty of things to eat and I don’t have a chef. You can do this!

The prayers of my husband and I are with you. You can do this. You will get to the point where you wonder why you ever thought the change in diet would be impossible. Eating organic fruits and veggies and grass-fed beef and free-range poultry makes a world of difference. Look into cleaning products used both in your home and work environment. Go natural there too.

    I guess it’s time to learn to grow your own food and make your own breads with heirloom seeds and use sprouted grains or alternatives to wheat. There is also this superfood created in Korea called HemoHIM and you sign up and register as a member for free with ATOMY and you have access to this immunity enhancing food created by the Korean Atomic Energy Research Institute that the Korean FDA has for the first time catagorized as the #1 health functional food for the nation. The Atomic Hospital and the Samsung Hospital in Korea give this superfood to cancer patients along with their chemo/radio treatments because it effectively reduces side affects and protects self renewable tissues in small intestines. Also, HemoHIM has over 150 medical journals on it ranging from reducing inflammation (root of all disease) to helping with a handful of inflammation related diseases. It is being patented all over the world and is FDA approved in USA and patented here too. Completely herbal based using radio fusion technology from KAERI and is patented as enhancing anti-cancer activity in the body. Check it out on facebook @ atomyrevolution

    Glenn,
    I didn’t hear xylitol on either list, you might want to ask your doctors about it because it is a sweetener that is made from Birch bark and does not create an insulin response, it also fights tooth decay. It doesn’t cook well that I’ve been able to discover but it can be added to drinks and yogurts. I discovered it when I put my son who has Autism on the Gluten Free Casien Free diet they also wanted him to go sugar and soy free but I haven’t been able to get it that far.
    This diet sounds intimidating and at first it is hard while you have this huge learning curve and you are adjusting to all of the changes. But after a while once you find some new recipes and get familiar with the odd veggies and foods you’ve never heard of it does become easier as you settle into a new routine and these weird foods become old hat it is no longer so hard. It’s mostly just getting past the adjustment period.

    With you on this one Glenn! I discovered in May of 2013 that I am allergic to gluten and all derivatives of corn…along with a few other things. My skin was actually coming off. This means I can only eat fresh fruit and veggies and grass fed meat…thank goodness I can eat cheese. I can’t even handle the other foods with bare hands. Now…I eat very healthy. Yay…… After 10 months, the only thing I
    really miss are juicy, sloppy cheeseburgers and pizza. And I lost the 30
    lbs that I mysteriously gained. There are 2 things that have become
    staples…Lays has a line of chips called Simply. Just potatoes,
    sunflower oil and sea salt. And a company called Beanitos makes black
    bean chips that have no grains…including corn. Very bland, but with
    spiced up ground hamburger and homemade (completely from scratch) hummus.
    The chips are awesome! And when I meet friends out at a restaurant, I
    have a glass of tea and enjoy the company….making sure that I eat before I
    leave the house. Friends have finally gotten the idea that I’m okay with
    them eating in front of me.

    Oh…and if you’re really sensitive to the corn…to the point of being
    allergic…remember, eggs come from chickens and chickens are fed corn.
    And most salads in restaurants are washed with a citric acid…corn based,
    usually not citrus based. Most vinegars are corn based. Bragg’s
    Apple Cider Vinegar is great for using on salads. Almost all of your
    laundry detergents, shampoos, conditioners, soaps, toothpastes, and all your
    other toiletries contain corn. And the killer thing is the honey!!!
    Some bee keepers feed their bees corn syrup! WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!???????
    Because it’s cheap. Dumb bee keepers!!!

    I didn’t know any of this and it took a few months to figure it all out.

    Have fun….just remember how much better you’ll feel without all that crap in
    your system…yay.

    Glenn, you should look into NAET, as well as energy work (The Emotion Code) too. That is what I would recommend along with the diet change.

  • Charlene Kate Kavanagh

    Before you take this recommendation as gospel, hire the chef, etc, I suggest you see a real cowboy, Dr. Joe Teff in Madison, WI. He solves medical mysteries and has spent his life helping people heal by supporting the body’s ability to heal itself. Your docs haven’t explained why your body turned on you. Their solution doesn’t entirely make sense to me and I am a scientist myself. I have experienced Dr. Teff as an amazing researcher and healer. He is aware of and works with the body’s subtle energies. He does much more than chiropractic and nutrition is his specialty. Google him and see his credentials for yourself. There are many types of poisoning in one environment including radioactivity which most doctors know nothing about or minimize. Dr. Teff does not.
    I have known and worked with many amazing docs over my 35 yr career and Dr. Teff not only is in a class by himself (he sees patients from all over the country) but is kind and caring. He also has made me aware of other amazing healers out there and I am studying with 2 of them. FYI, I have survived a rare type of melanoma and overcome fibromyalgia as a result of going beyond the medical establishment. I was told at one time that I had an autoimmune disorder as well. I did not. What was wrong with me, I now understand, was side effects from antibiotics and other medications prescribed by well-meaning doctors. Conventional medicine has yet to accept that the cell is not controlled by the nucleus but it’s membrane. See The Biology of Belief by Dr. Bruce Lipton.
    Good Luck and God Bless.
    Dr. Kate

    Here is the FDA announcement that notes that fluoroquinolones (Cipro, Levaquin and Avelox) can cause permanent peripheral neuropathy -http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/ucm365050.htm They also cause multi-symptom chronic illness. All of the adverse effects on the label can happen at once. The effects can be delayed and adverse effects of fluoroquinolones are often cumulative as well. There are stories of hope and healing from fluoroquinolone toxicity on http://www.floxiehope.com. I hope that you feel better and please don’t hesitate to contact me through floxiehope if you have any questions about fluoroquinolone toxicity.

    Glenn, It sounds like you are suffering from effects of the S.A.D. diet. Standard American Diet. It is so very prevalent in our society. Simply put, we’re eating food-like products and not really food at all. A good, non-voodoo/non-weirdo new ager, natural health practitioner could have given you your current diagnosis in half the time for half the cost. If we ate real food with real ingredients we could actually pronounce and without a mile long list we’d all be in much better health. Jordan Robin’s Maker’s Diet would be a great book for you, Glenn. I just want you to know you have a huge support group in your fan base. If you get on the real food bandwagon, well, that would make you damn near perfect. No, I’m not trying to flatter or patronize you, I just really support everything you are doing at The Blaze. It’s genius. Oh, just so you know, you CAN eat deliciously healthy.

    Nobody seems to know what GMO’s actually are. They are NOT poison. They are simply plants that have been bred to have desirable charateristics. Did you know the garden strawberries we eat today are a GMO? They didn’t exist before man combined Fragaria virginiana and Fragaria chiloensis. It’s not some weird science experiment. It’s simply taking 2 breeds of the same kind of plant and crossing them so you get the traits you want.

    All plants in nature have been “genetically modified”, it’s called adaptation. That’s how they survive, by adapting to their environment, and that is a genetic change also.

  • jeni Reida

    Glenn…. Our 16 year old has the same problem as you. I knew something was making her sick, but no one could find it. She is a confirmed Celiac but has a list similar to yours of foods that where attacking her body. 4 to 5 months on her new diet from Carrick, she’s pain free for the first time in her life. I would reach out to the Chef Deb that cooks for Carrick and she what suggestions she has for you.

    Chef Deb believes that it IS possible to eat foods
    you love without compromising your well-being.  She has helped countless individuals and families adjust to changes in diet and eating habits surrounding health issues, including cancer, diabetes, allergies, etc., using a combination of education, coaching and customized meal preparation. Here’s her information: Savor Culinary Services 2410 West Abram Suite 110 Arlington, Texas 76013 United States (817) 277-3031

    Hope this helps! Good luck on your journey to good health.

  • Joseline Torresmulero

    A little note on how GMO affect our bodies. No one get poison by normal food unless that normal food is being chemically altered. Nature have a special way to clean your body. But chemicals in your body do the oposite altering your body system and making your body react against it. One more reason to ditch GMO products and buy from your neighbor farmers

  • boyse

    Consider allergy to corn and corn products. Very tough to avoid, especially the corn products, but there are corn allergy awareness resources online, can help you put the pieces of the puzzle together.

  • FloxieHope

    Your doctors are idiots – the ones who couldn’t help you, the ones who you think will help you with this restrictive diet, and mostly, the ones who are actually responsible for your pain. FOOD does not cause neuropathic pain and autoimmune diseases. Even if you were eating taco bell burritos 24-7, it wouldn’t give you an autoimmune disease – or neuropathic pain. You know what causes autoimmune diseases? Damaged immune system cells. You know what damages immune system cells (and all other cells too)? Pharmaceuticals. The symptoms that you are describing are exactly what people who are having an adverse reaction to fluoroquinolones experience. Fluoroquinolones include Cipro, Levaquin and Avelox. These drugs deplete mitochondrial DNA and cause multi-symptom chronic illness. Most people have a tolerance threshold for them and are hurt by their tenth, or fiftieth, or hundredth pill. There are a few doctors who know a few things about fluoroquinolone toxicity, but most are woefully ignorant fools.

    The people who know a lot about fluoroquinolone toxicity are the ones who have been through it. There are facebook groups to help. Use a pseudonym and go to this one if you are suffering from FQ toxicity – https://www.facebook.com/groups/46690244194/

    I hope that this restrictive diet helps you. It might help, but it probably won’t cure you. There, unfortunately, is no cure. BUT, people do heal. With time, luck and various other methods. There are stories of hope and healing from fluoroquinolone toxicity on http://www.floxiehope.com. Good luck!

  • FloxieHope

    Another thing to look out for regarding infections, is if you have had an infection recently, there is a class of antibiotics that can cause a reaction like this. The antibiotics are called fluoroquinolones – Cipro, Levaquin and Avelox. Fluoroquinolone toxicity can manifest itself in neuropathic pain, autonomic nervous system shut-down and feeling as if every system in your body is shutting down. Basically, chronic multi-symptom illness that looks and feels a lot like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome / M.E., and autoimmune diseases. Fluoroquinolone toxicity can last for years, or sometimes even a lifetime. There is nothing trivial about it. Adverse reactions can be delayed for months (kind of the nature of mitochondrial injuries). So, if Glenn took a fluoroquinolone recently, that may be the root of his problem.

    The GAPS diet is the one I would recommend too. The cause of Glenn’s problems is probably a leaky gut, and that can be healed through the GAPS diet. Once the leaky gut is healed, you can eat foods that previously irritated your body. It starts off with just broth, meats and cooked vegetables, but then you can quickly start adding more. You have to take the probiotics and keep adding foods for it to work. I know a little about this because I am following the GAPS diet currently. The point is to be able to eat nutritious food again (even properly prepared wheat – like it says in the word of wisdom) without harming your body. This can be achieved in two to three years. Paleo is not the answer because God gave us dairy and grains for our use. The GAPS protocol is a total reset. I hope Glenn sees this message because he doesn’t have to suffer in a restricted diet forever. Honey (has to be raw) is one of the first things I was able to add and it’s a life saver! I’m only on stage 3 of the GAPS introduction diet and my diet is already more varied than Glenn’s.

Don’t eat out, not worth the way you feel afterwards. Add juicing to this list as we juice carrots, apples, beets & many more. For meat we raise meat birds & eat tofu. Both of us work more then most 20 yr. olds and sleep like babies

    Another witnessed healing… don’t eat the tobaccos (nightshades). Crazy on what ails us in disease is what we are consuming. This is bigger news (that we are consuming, eating, drinking, tobacco) then anything else because of so many Americans effected by these inflammatory foods that is causing inflammatory diseases that causes all types of misery to the masses. Even the cancer society says …stay away from all tobaccos but they fail to mention tomatoes, potatoes, egg plant, and all peppers. Sad state of affairs we find ourselves in when the answer to what ails many is being hindered by the industries and institutions of big pharma, big medicine, fast food, frozen food, condiments, beauty products… Just don’t eat tobacco. Pass it along… the controlled press won’t tell you this as their advertisers are the ones poisoning us.

    Glen, I am sure you are getting a lot of recommendations on how you should approach your food and immune system issues. I have a company I think you might be interested in looking into, it is called “Reliv” (www.reliv.com). Reliv is a supplement that helps our body repair and heal themselves the way God intended our bodies to do all along. The reason our bodies are not doing this on their own is because of all the chemicals in the air, preservatives we put in our foods, and our food no longer has the nutrients in it like it did years ago.
    I only bring this company to you because I know it works. About 8 months ago I moved to North Carolina and all the sudden became highly Lactose intolerant. I went and saw an allergist and was told there was no reason except my body had changed. Also during this time I was going thru sever mood swings due to having our first child and because of my MS. I was about to make an appointment to get put on anti-depressants when I decided to try Reliv. My husband has been taking it for 10+ years but I never saw a reason for me to take it. So I started taking one shake a day. After 3 days the mood swings were gone, I was happy and laughing, and I had energy which had been gone since I got pregnant. Three weeks later I was giving my daughter yogurt and wasn’t thinking and put the spoon in my mouth. Later that night I was shocked that I wasn’t in pain. So the next day I tried a cheese burger and still no pain. Now I need to tell you Reliv is not a cure. I realized that if I missed a shake then I would not be able to have dairy that day or I’d be in pain.
    There are more stories than just mine, my Grandparents have bad knees and are getting relief from there constant pain. My mother-in-law years ago had cancer and was only expected to live 4 months. She went through no treatments or surgeries but increased the amount of Reliv she took in a day and today she is cancer free. There are lots more stories like these for all different health issues. Also if you look into the product and have even more questions or would like to hear more stories you can contact me on Facebook. My mother-in-law has been with the company for 20+ years and is very knowledgeable with the different product and how they work. I hope to hear soon that you are getting some relief from your issues whether you use Reliv or not.

    I hate to say it, but it’s not that simple. Even Monsanto would not agree with your definition of GMOs:

    http://www.monsanto.com/newsviews/pages/glossary.aspx#g

    What you described in strawberries is not an example of a GMO, just a hybrid. A GMO strawberry, for example, is one that has been injected with a fish gene: http://gmo-awareness.com/all-about-gmos/gmo-defined/

    Genetic modification is not hybridization or adaptation. The latter two have been around for centuries, either in nature or arranged by man, and yes, I believe those are safe. Genetic modification is entirely different, completely unnatural, and untested/unproven to be safe. Almost the whole world’s population is now part of the experiment to see if GMOs are safe, and by the time we find out, if they’re as bad for us as some scientists believe they are, it will be too late for many.

    Keep reading…keep learning… I won’t try to say more, because there is a TON of information just a few keystrokes away. Find an expert you trust, and see what they think. That’s all most of us can do.

    Yeah, it’s due to genetics. There is a gene that impacts whether you will like cilantro or not. I don’t carry it. I love cilantro. My daughter hates it so I suspect she does carry it.

    I have been told I have fibromyalgia since 2006 despite having severe food allergies and asthma and hives . A year ago I realized foods were poisoning me and after cutting out all red meats, pasta, bread, milk wheat, sugar, eggs and pop, and going to gluten free foods. Drinking only propel flavored water , I had less pain and swelling of my hands too. Less fog brain, slept better. I still have some physical issues , hence having has back surgery , but overall I notice a huge difference!! What is our FDA and farmers and food makers doing to us??? OMG. I say we go back to the 1900′s and can and cook our own foods again. I want to know what I eat. I also have just been diagnosed with an eye disease which stems from auto immune problems and allergies and neuropathy. It sucks! I want Glenn to be an Advocate and SCREAM about our country making changes to our food supply and get it natural again! Make noise Glenn. People need to hear how our food is really poisoning us!

  • Barbara O’Connell

    Lori, Please try giving up any food with gluten in it….I’ve only given up wheat products but all my pain is gone. My allergies are better…I also take a few things that build the immune system. We eat mostly organic veggies and fruits. We eat either grass fed or organic red meat. Please cut back on chicken an turkey as they are inflammatory meats…My c reactive protein is just about normal….the first time in 15 years. i have asthma but it is in remission. I take a list of supplements and they really make a difference….If you are interested in what I’m taking, I’ll be glad to give you a list and the brand. For goodness sake, start on Curcumin….get the Life Extension brand. If you’re not a member of LE, you can find their brand on
    Amazon. I wasn’t taking enough initially but I’ve upped the number of pills I take so I think my C reactive protein will finally be normal.
