This area will primarily be Emails that you have sent in response to the information on this site or testimonials of your personal experience with its dietary concepts. I have been getting a steady stream of Emails, particularly from dog breeders, who have had prior experience with many of the ideas presented in these papers and who have experienced great success once they began eliminating the trouble foods from their pet’s diets. I will place as many of these letters as I can in this section to illustrate the wide range of conditions treated as well as the degree of response to instituting food elimination as part of the therapy to those conditions.
A quick commentary before you start: What is universal is the fact that people know in part and therefore do in part when it comes to accomplishing the goal of optimal health through the elimination of dietary culprits. I am no exception, of course. Dr. Atkins himself did this, advising us to eliminate sugary carbs by avoiding the grains but then having us to eat all we want of the number one human allergen (dairy products).
If we get it partly right then we usually become partly well. So, how do we do a better job of striving toward perfection? Should we really be putting limitations on what this miraculous body can do, especially in this day and age of excess and abuse? We are doing so much wrong at any given moment – our diets, habits, lifestyles, environments – how can we expect to thrive? But we can turn that around and safely assume that if we stop doing these things, we may very well recover in ways we never thought possible. That is exactly what’s happening around me on a very regular basis as my clients and Internet contacts employ The GARD in the treatment of their pets, their family and their own medical conditions.
I began a thread on The Labrador Retriever Chat Board back in July ’05 to serve as a clearinghouse of testimonials I have received over the years. It contains a number of the positive responses and encouraging Emails that I have been received dealing with both veterinary and human medical issues, particularly epilepsy.
It can be found by clicking this link: Epilepsy Diet (The G.A.R.D.) Testimonials
However, this board experienced a major server crash a year ago and lost about 6 months of data. Unfortunately, I had a laptop crash just before that and lost much of the same data. (Yes, it’s been an ordeal.) But, there should be more than enough examples of the kind of medical miracles that I have been hearing about listed on this page to get even the biggest skeptic interested. This approach does work…and phenomenally well!!!
*The Ultimate Testimony – This is one the most recent testimonials that I have received as of 2/28/06. I now call it “The Ultimate Testimony” as it contains so many of the elements about which I have written over the past 6 years…and gives the credit to Whom it is due.
Again, I will be placing the latest G.A.R.D. testimonials here and in the Your Latest Success Stories section of this site. I have actually suffered two computer crashes over the past 10 years, resulting in the loss of quite a bit of data. But hopefully the testimonials that the above forum thread contains along with those placed here will be adequate to convince the reader that employing The G.A.R.D. is an essential step for anyone to take in the treatment of chronic illness as well as in their search for optimal health.
Miracles have happened by simply avoiding the things about which I have written so passionately. The addition of appropriate vitamins, minerals, and nutraceuticals (e.g. antioxidants) will help to speed and insure recovery. This should all make sense by the time you’ve spent some time on the site. If not, then I have not done my job…yet.
