Show Notes

Today’s episode is a RELAUNCH of one of our favorite episodes of Food, Success & Life for the Modern Woman. We welcome Dr. William Davis to talk about why we’re seeing so many everyday diseases and conditions, how grains have changed from what they were only decades ago, how these are contributing to our health (or lack thereof), and how to regain control of our health.

Dr. Davis is author of the book Undoctored: Why Health Care Has Failed You And How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor. Undoctored seeks to set you free from the predatory practices of the healthcare industry by helping you achieve ideal health, weight, and day-to-day functioning.

Americans face daily struggles with ballooning costs, unsatisfactory outcomes, and over-whelming frustration with the U.S. healthcare system which aims to address illness but rarely accomplishes real health. Instead, we have a healthcare system that promotes a vicious cycle of illness followed by unnecessary medical procedures, expensive and counterproductive drugs, and disastrous health outcomes.

We’re often told that we need grains to be healthy. This is nonsense. Grains actually cause a number of nutritional deficiencies.

The most common everyday diseases like migraine, IBS, rheumatoid arthritis, plantar fasciitis, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, etc, go away when following Dr. Davis’ 6 step plan that you can do without your doctor.

When dealing with our body, our health wellness and our illnesses, we are the most educated person in a room with our doctors. We make it our business to learn what is going on with our body. Doctors make it their business to increase their bottom line, through MRIs, and chemo, and all the revenue producing activities they’re generating. But we are now living in the information age, and we can take our body’s health into our own hands.

“The enemy of healthcare is not sickness. The enemy of the healthcare system are healthy people.”- Dr. William Davis

6 Week Program to Take Control of Your Health

Dr. Davis starts with trying to make people skeptical about their doctor and the “health” in their “healthcare”.

It is wheat and grain elimination, sugar limitation, iodine/thyroid stabilization and some other key steps. It makes you healthy, stronger and slender. This is not gluten free. You will have astounding, healthy control of your health and that of your family’s.

The results of Dr. Davis’ 6-week program are superior to solutions provided by the conventional healthcare system. You will be equipped to manage your own health and sidestep the misguided motives of a profit-driven medical system.


How do you Collaborate with your Doctor on this Program?

Tell them you don’t’ want to talk about medicine and drugs, tell them you want to talk about nutrition. If your doctor tells you they’re not interested, or that’s not how it works, walk out.

You may have to find a functional, integrative doctor, naturopath or a chiropractor who can refer you to other like-minded practitioners. But keep at it and you will find the right doctor to work with.
