Diet and lifestyle changes to help calm your Lupus symptoms or even begin healing your body from the inside out.
I tried a vegan diet to cure lupus. No luck. But it is good for health,.we need that.
jessie from hb,That a vegan diet can cure Lupus is John McDougall MD's belief as well as many other professionals.I'm not sure I would believe a vegan diet could cure Lupus but I am with you that it could help you be healthier. I'm still not sure in researching vegan diets that we as humans need no animal products at all, but I KNOW that we as Americans eat WAY too much animal products and even if we lessened them just to be condiments rather than the meal we'd all be better for it too. (Check for food allergies too!)
it's true!!!! I was diagnosed with SLE in 2010 and I am completely 100% symptom free today. I went vegetarian in January of 2010 and Vegan November of 2011. It really has been the greatest blessing in my life. Give vegan a try! you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. :)
Anonymous,Glad the vegan diet helped you. Make sure you check your B12 levels occasionally to make sure they're OK.
b12 is the easiest thing to make sure its ok.. the least of concerns for someone who's suffered or suffering with lupus. hope to hear more stories of how vegan helps.. looking for alternatives for my daughter.
Anonymous,There are many doctors and people that have stories on the internet and in books about vegan diets. Read Neal Barnard' MD's books/articles, Joel Fuhrman MD's books. I personally am not completely vegan (though I try to keep meat to a minimum) I am also intolerant/allergic to eggs and dairy so those are out as well. Read Mark Hyman (not vegan? but allergen free). I think allergen free is THE MOST important!
