Please have a look at Robyn's blog. She is committed to teaching folks how to be healthier. I love this four part post that she recently shared. We tend to focus on healthy food to be healthier, but there are so many more choices that we can make to increase health. Click the links below to read on...

Another holistic doctor for you all to research. Dr. McDougall. Read his books/articles/website etc. Click below to see how a patient of his healed her arthritis. He also mentions this diet/protocol being able to help Lupus as well.

Started my children in their Senior year, last year, out here and they didn't do well at all. So we rented an apartment to get them back into their old school district. The added expense of the apartment and gas for travel, hurt, plus paying for our current mortgage as well.
Then this year they both started college and more money was needed.
Also 2 sick and old doggies (the dogs are 10 and 11 years old) in the mix and vet trips. One dog has developed incontinence, the other has a mass that we think is cancer....(even with feeding the dogs quality homemade raw food diets... go figure)
OK enough about me. I had 2 reasons for starting this blog.
1) To document my Lupus healing journey
2) To share information to help others with Lupus and other autoimmune diseases (and other diseases of other types) because something I try, or research, or learn can possibly help you all and your friends and family

A paper that everyone should read. If you look at Celiac Disease/Gluten Intolerance symptoms and Lupus symptoms side by side, many symptoms are far too similar. Click below to read the paper

It's Only Natural Food and Wellness Store in Bellport, Halsey's Green Thumb Farmer Market in Water Mill has many grocery items as well as, gluten free items, raw nuts, dried fruits, beans, rice, pasta, chips, cheeses and check out any other farmer's markets too) It's great to keep a list of Health Food Stores where you live or where you travel so you always have food options whether you are raw, macrobiotic, gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, paleo, or whatever diet you personally follow.
When you travel look on-line for health food stores in the location you will be travelling. Also don't forget if you are travelling during the warmer months you can look to your local farmer's markets as well!

I'm not sure where the grains/dry beans and nuts are from as many times they are not labeled. These products are often moldy too.
If you have issues with mold this could be a real problem for your body. When we outwardly see mold growing it has already been growing on the food for some time.
Another reason to eat locally grown produce...or start growing your own garden/food.
Some foods that are affected are; all fruits and veggies, nuts, beans, grains, flours just about everything!
Also watch for tropical fruits, they also come a long way to most location, mangoes; pineapples, coconut, etc.(and these are often irradiated to get rid of any critters trying to hitch a ride to the US)
