Much of the chronic illness in our country is related to the food we consume. More and more research is proving that many of the foods we have thought was healthy foods may actually be adding to the poor health and chronic disease in our country. We all know that we need to cut back on overly processed fast and convenient foods that contain artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors, too much sugar, dyes and trans fats. But is this enough? No!!
Many foods we have grown up eating and have actually been told by our doctors to eat more of may actually be causing many of our chronic health problems. These typical American Diet foods are causing chronic inflammation and oxidation to our body along with disrupting the microbiome in our gut.
We have to be proactive today if we want to help with current food associated health problems and future potential health problems associated with our diets. Your chances of better health through proper nutrition will be increased dramatically if you follow some simple steps Dr. Michael Lange has carefully researched and developed and calls “The Lange Survival Diet” or “The Fortifeye Survival Diet” Or “Survival Diet”.
This is a diet that is extremely low or free of all the things that are harming you like: gluten, fodmaps, lectins, oxalates, glyphosate ,phytic acid, arsenic, lead, pesticides, insecticides, aflatoxins, phytoestrogens, saponins, protease inhibitors and alkaloids. Dr. Michael Lange created this diet plan to help everyone improve their overall health and visual health. God made a pretty good body if only the right fuel is given! Dr. Lange always recommends discussing any new diets with your primary care physician before starting.

Pseudo-grains: Organic De Hulled Quinoa, Organic Buckwheat and Organic Amaranth. These pseudo cereals are allowed 3 times a week only if they are washed, soaked and preferably sprouted. Boiling and fermenting of these pseudo grains further reduces the anti nutrients. These 3 grains are gluten free but do contain 4 anti nutrients: Lectins, saponins, protease inhibitors and phytates. if you take the time to prepare them you will gain the health benefits with none of the negative side effects. Sourdough bread or organic sprouted bread is okay in moderation, especially if most of the ingredients come from the Lange Survival Diet/ Fortifeye Survival Diet. Bon Appetite!
