The Standard American Death
Are you caught in the standard American diet, and near to the standard American death by heart attack, stroke or diabetes? Read the story of one man who was:
by Reverend Karl Stewart, Retired
In August of 2013, I had a health crisis. The constant hunger, fatigue and severe body stiffness made me feel like I couldn’t get out of the chair and walk across the room. The scary part was that no matter how little I ate, I kept gaining weight. My blood pressure was getting higher, blood lipids were off the chart, triglycerides over 550.
The doctor was telling me I had pre-diabetes, whatever that is, and I could not pinch the skin over the deltoid muscle on my upper arm. I could not see my collar bones. My abdomen and my ankles were swollen. Even my fingers were like swollen sausages.
People would say I was obese but I now know that it wasn’t fat but edema from a swollen lymphatic system caused by the toxic foods I was eating. I was eating nothing more than the standard American diet, really, just meat, potatoes, a vegetable and bread and butter. It was nothing fancy or in large quantities.
That was when the chest pains started and I knew. My life was over. My whole body felt like it was seizing up, muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, heart. These are just words unless it is happening to you. As the chest pains grew greater and more frequent, I resigned myself to the fact that maybe today I would have the standard American heart attack at the age of sixty three and a half. Instead of grabbing that first Social Security check, I would grab my chest or my left arm and fall over dead on the ground. No one would think anything was amiss. Wasn’t I old and fat with high blood pressure, high triglycerides and pre-diabetic?
By God’s grace, a few days later, I saw a little headline on the internet saying, “Scientists declare they have fixed the gluten in wheat as shown in a 1960 film strip by the USDA.” And then I knew. They must have genetically modified the wheat somehow.
I stopped eating all wheat products. I saw results in a few days. The food cravings stopped. The weight began to drop. Energy levels began to increase.
This was when I saw, “You’re Not Fat, You’re Toxic,” advertized and I bought it. The one burning question in my mind was, “What other foods am I eating that are killing me?” This is where Stephanie Relfe’s life time of caring for the health of the human body and her years of nutritional research combined to deliver an outstanding 600+ page reference book to answer that very question.
For instance, in the section of the book dealing with wheat, I learned that in 1943 a John D. Rockefeller led foundation paid scientist to genetically modify the old einkhorn wheat, which had only 14 chromosomes, to today’s wheat which has a whopping 28 chromosomes. This created a new total of 23,000 different proteins, any one of which could cause an allergic reaction and that is why my lymphatic system was so inflamed and swollen.
In “You’re Not Fat, You’re Toxic, ” the author not only tells you what to avoid but also what to eat, how to shop for it and how to prepare it. It’s all there in an easy to read, almost spellbinding, format. Wanting to live, I started eating the diet Stephanie Relfe recommended. You know, mostly raw vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans, fruit and the like and five months later I was twenty five pounds lighter without doing ANY exercise. And yes, I know, should exercise but I could hardly walk.
After another five months, I had lost another five pounds. I had gone from a runaway 202lbs to 172lbs. People would look at me an say, ” You’ve lost weight” and I would smile thinking I almost lost my life.
I couldn’t make this up. If it didn’t happen to me I wouldn’t know about any of this or believe anyone who said that it happened to them. Now all I know is, before, I was so terribly depressed and dead on my feet I could not do anything but drag myself to work and back to my bed, but now I have my life back due in large part to Stephanie’s book. All the “obesity,” high blood pressure, high triglycerides and pre-diabetes melted away along with the body stiffness and chest pains. I don’t know. Maybe you are caught in the standard American diet and are near to the standard American death by heart attack, stroke or diabetes. Maybe you should avoid that. Buy “You’re Not Fat, You’re Toxic, by Stephanie Relfe. Read it. Do it and live.
After I read the book, in a few days, I bought four more. It’s cheaper than buying one at a time. I gave one to my son and one to my daughter. She lent it to her friend, so I gave her another one. Then I gave one to a sick friend and kept mine so I could reread it. I didn’t want my family and friends to ever ever be as sick as I was. These are the true words of a man who should already be dead because of the toxic foods he was eating. Please! I beg you! Find out how to eat healthy so that you can be healthy. Stop and consider. How much is the cost of one trip to the doctor compared to the price of this book? Well, he who has ears to hear, let him hear.
