JFK Had Celiac Disease and Colitis?

by Jordan Reasoner

I just watched an ABC World News special about a secret 8-hour interview with Jacqueline Kennedy recorded only 4-months after JFK’s tragic death.

Apparently, the recording has been locked in a vault for 50 years, and now it’s finally being released to the public.

In this clip from the interview, Jacqueline reveals the “stomach trouble” JFK dealt with all his life, even calling it the “Kennedy Stomach…”

You’ll also learn how one of the most prolific president’s in history suffered through HORRIBLE symptoms consistent with Celiac Disease and Colitis throughout his campaign and presidency.

(Watch from 5:30 to 7:18 for the important stuff.  Sorry about the ad in the beginning… thanks ABC)

A little research revealed even more details…

Dr. Green, Director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons said:

“In Kennedy’s adolescence, gastrointestinal symptoms, weight and growth problems as well as fatigue were described. Later in life, he suffered from abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, osteoporosis, migraine and Addison’s disease. Chronic back problems, due to osteoporosis resulted in several operations and required medications for chronic pain. He was extensively evaluated in major medical centers including the Mayo Clinic and hospitals in Boston, New Haven and New York. Among the multiple diagnoses were ulcers, colitis, spastic colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and food allergies. His medications included corticosteroids, antispasmotics, Metamucil and Lomotil. However it is not clear that his physicians obtained a definitive diagnosis. “

He goes on to say:

“Kennedy’s Irish heritage, long duration of gastrointestinal complaints (since childhood), diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome and migraine, presence of severe osteoporosis, and the development of Addison’s disease all lead to a presumptive diagnosis of celiac disease.

If JFK was able to do such incredible things WHILE struggling with this stuff, imagine if he was diagnosed and treated with The Specific Carbohydrate Diet to stop the symptoms early on.

Then imagine what YOU could do in your life without symptoms…

Imagine if you really spent time building a custom version of SCD (and figured out exactly what to eat to feel good).

I’m betting you could do amazing things you never thought were possible…

Especially if you didn’t have to worry about your stomach messing up your daily life.

In fact, you could probably live a completely different life using SCD to control your symptoms.

That’s why we created our book, to walk you through the step-by-step process to build your personalized version of SCD and take control of your health… so you can experience the endless possibilities of a life without symptoms.

I read about JFK’s problems some years back in the reader’s digest magazine. I didn’t keep the issue but it made clear he indeed had celiac and adrenal problems much like mine. He kept “medicine” all over the world for emergencies, took injections and had many health issues. You could probably find the magazine copy somewhere. jan
