The Ultimate Testimony
Hello Dogtor J,
Two and a half years ago, my daughter was praying about her 5 year
old son, Garrett, asking God, "What is wrong with my son?". He would kick, scream, hit, throw himself on the floor, have "tantrums".
He would only wear black and grey. Family members with children asked her not to bring him over because he was so mean. Another
said he should be tested for ADHD.(These symptoms started around two years of age. The doctors all said he was just going
through a phase - all kids do.) For a long time she thought it had to be just a discipline problem.
After the first prayer, the word "wheat" popped into her head. She
checked it out on the Internet and decided she didn't want to deal with that. So she prayed again, and got the same answer.
Three times she prayed asking the same thing, and three times she got the same answer "wheat". So she decided to try it. Four
days later her little boy sat on the floor for 2 hours making a coloring book for his little sister.
Before, at bath time, he would scream to have to undress, scream about
getting his hair washed, scream about getting out. It was always a huge battle. After being gluten free for 4 days, the bath
time went like this. He got into the tub after undressing himself, let his Dad wash his hair - no yelling (by anyone)- he
got himself out of the tub, dried himself off, dressed, put the toys away, emptied the tub, cleaned up the bathroom and went
peacefully to bed. WHAT A CHANGE. She got her sweet, intelligent little boy back.
She told me the symptoms of celiac disease on the phone and this story
about Garrett. I said it sounded like me and decided to try going gluten-free too. Four days later , I was feeling great.
(I had been depressed, over weight, tired, couldn't think. I'd sit in bed half the day, force myself to get up and get dressed,
and then battle to get anything accomplished after I did get up. Total fuzz brain. And I had chronic anemia)
One of the main Websites my daughter found was yours. "The Answer"
helped us so much. The first year we went gluten-free. The second year we gave up dairy. I have type-II diabetes and weighed
264 pounds. My A1C hadn't been below 7.2 in 12 years. The very month after I gave up the milk, my A1C was 6.4 and has been
in the 6. range for the past year and a half. Oh, and I've lost 80 lbs. (I haven't given up sugar or fats like I tried on
other diets, nor have I cut down on quantity. If I'm hungry, I eat.) My daughter lost 85 lbs. in the same time frame doing
the same thing. It amazes us that even a tiny amount of milk will cause terrible food cravings. We have since also cut out
soy and corn.
I don't eat any grains at all (no buckwheat either) because they all
cause the foggy brain, tiredness, depression, diarrhea. Soy also causes my heart to beat irregularly (skipped beats and then
extra hard ones). I used to have sinus headaches all the time, and often had colds, bronchitis, pneumonia. I was sick all
the time. A sinus headache now means I ate the wrong thing. And I've only had two colds in the past 2 1/2 years (which only
lasted up to 4 days.)
People feel sorry for us because we can't eat everything but if I
had known this stuff in my 20's I'd have gladly given it up to feel so good. (I'd tried every diet I could find.) For the
past few years I felt so rotten , I didn't think I'd live for more than ten years. I felt like an old lady (I was only 53),
and had to climb stairs one at a time (right foot up, right foot up etc. and down the same way - except right foot down, right
foot down...smile..) Now I can run up and down the stairs. I feel like I'm in my early 40's again. I got rid of the antidepressants
right away (after no gluten). Who needs them when you feel so good.
After giving up some of these foods, we have become sensitive to what
our bodies are telling us about other foods. Giving foods up has become so easy especially when plain healthy food tastes
so good now. My doctor was concerned about me giving up milk but my bone density test came back saying I have the bone density
of a 30 year old. (Thank you green veggies and fruits.)
At this time, my daughter's whole family is gluten-free, milk-free,
soy-free, corn-free, and a couple are egg-free. (That includes one husband and 3 children.) My oldest sons family is milk-free
and my son is also gluten-free. My youngest son is trying his oldest son on no gluten and the baby (1 year) can't handle milk.
Their daughter was tested for celiac (biopsy) but the test was negative. I think she shouldn't have gluten because she is
so hyper and itches all over. It takes a long time for people to be willing to try these diet changes.
Anyway, I wanted to thank you for your obedience to God. I don't want
to think where we'd be if your Website wasn't out there. I have copied "The Answer" off many times and given it to people
who don't have computers. I have passed out your Website many times when people want to know what happened to me. I suspected
you were a brother in Christ by what I read. That made it easier for me to give the information out to people. Two weeks ago,
I gave this Website to a friend with insomnia. I also remembered that at one time she had suffered from severe anemia. She
went gluten-free and after 9 days, she had had two complete nights of sound sleep which she hadn't had in 2 years.
I believe God wants His people well. Thank you so much for you obedience
I hope you enjoyed your time here and got something important from your stay. It is
my goal to help all of mankind navigate through the jungle of medical information now available on the Internet and find the
truth about the origins of what we call "disease" as well as discover the natural solutions for these conditions.
We do have our health's destiny in our own hands more than we've ever
imagined, certainly more than most have ever been told. Think naturally and the answer will come.

You can now go to the new site!
The New DogtorJ.com is done! Yes, the time has finally come for this homemade Website to go the way of the
buffalo. I know that you all join me in looking forward to using a site that is better organized and more accessible....prettier,
too! I've even corrected most of those annoying typos (I hope).
Feel free to check it out now at www.dogtorj.com. I am still working hard to populate all of the pages so don't worry if a link does not work. They should
all be active in the near future. In the meantime,
this current site will remain on-line until I get all of the bugs worked out.
Let me know what you think! It's not too late to make some changes.
I would still like to hear
from you personally, though.
I used to have a nice little form in this space that would
allow readers to send me a quick comment or testimonial. Unfortunately, as the Interent goes, I started getting
50-100 junk emails through this form and had to remove it.
So, until the new Website is up and running (soon!), I will have
to ask people to formulate an Email of their own and send it. I do want to hear from you so I would really appreciate
it if you could take the time to do this.
Simply title your Email "Visitor Comment" and include your name, occupation, comment/testimonial and
return Email address (if you want to be contacted) and send it to:
dogtorj @ dogtorj.com (Just remove the spaces on each side of the @ sign)
Please do not use this form to ask medical questions. See
the Contact section for instructions for sending DogtorJ an Email inquiry concerning a medical
be getting a major facelift in the very near future. Yes, the time has finally come for this homemade Website
to be taken over by someone who actually knows what they are doing. I know that you all join me in looking forward to having
the site better organized and more accessible. It'll be prettier, too!
This is taking place for a number of reasons, the most of important
of which will be revealed in the upcoming months. Yes, the book is finally in the works but there will be a
major awareness project to go along with it.
So, please stay tuned. Anyone who would like to get on my mailing list can do so by simply using the visitor's comment area (like the one above)
found at the bottom of each page.
Onward and upward!
