More than a book, more than social media, the Wheat Belly phenomenon has proven to be a movement, growing over time and creating an audience eager for food solutions that are healthy, delicious, convenient and consistent with the Wheat Belly message. Dr. Davis’ new book, Undoctored: Why Health Care Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor takes the lessons learned through the worldwide Wheat Belly experience and adds new concepts including how to harness the emerging power of crowd-sourced wisdom and new technological health tools. We are living in the dawn of an age when the health consumer can accomplish an astounding amount in regaining health on their own—without the doctor or healthcare system.
