Radio Interview On Richmond’s WRIR show Lightly on the Ground Radio
Aired: Aug 9th, 2017, 12 PM EST
During this radio interview with Sunny Gardner, Jane Cummings shares the story of her recovery from severe joint and nerve pain (in her wrists and feet) that was accompanied by brain fog. All these problems improved tremendously after following my advice to limit her oxalate intake.
Jane was initially angry at the information, having worked so hard to get to a healthful diet. She, like me, grew her own sweet potatoes and tomatoes. She also carried “pocket food”—nuts and seeds on most days.
Despite her feelings about the idea that her “healthy foods” could harm her, she moderated her food choices. She added more low oxalate foods, including romaine lettuce, and cut way back on the nuts and seeds. Things backed off, the foot stiffness and wrist pain essentially went away. Having been on the diet for almost 2 years, she now understands when she strays. Her body will tell her and symptoms will return. It works for her, every time. Just check the list and remember what foods she needs to move away from eating.
During this interview, I explain how the body can be overwhelmed by too much oxalate coming in and how the body makes a shift when you cut way back on consuming oxalate.
Jane now feels very grateful – she has a way to manage her own health. She could not get this information from doctors or the internet. So, she tells her friends about oxalates in our foods and how avoiding them has helped her.
Jane tuned her anger into a feeling of empowerment.
We both are grateful to have this option for better health. Thank you, Sunny for helping us tell our stories.
Please enjoy this 30 minute interview, and share your thoughts.
