What Is Autoimmune Disease?
Your autoimmune system is like your internal army, defending you from invaders. Autoimmune disease occurs when your immune system gets confused and attacks the body itself. It’s like getting caught in friendly crossfire. There are various types of autoimmune diseases which affect different organs, like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, etc. Conventional medicine deals with the symptoms, but doesn’t get to the root cause. What they prescribe are usually powerful drugs that suppress the immune system, putting patients at greater risk of infection, and sometimes death. I’m not saying all conventional medicine is bad. Sometimes people with advanced symptoms benefit from them to get their lives back on track. My oldest daughter was able to reverse her autoimmune disease with nutrition.
How My Daughter Reversed Multiple Sclerosis With Nutrition
It was early Spring of 2014, I was working out of town and received a call from my first-born daughter. She was crying and said she needed help. Her health was rapidly deteriorating since her Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis. Her one year old baby needed attention, but she did not have the energy to get out of bed. Furthermore, she suffered other symptoms like numbness on one side of her body, and blurry vision. Also, since her equilibrium was off, she was using a cane to keep her balance.
Thankfully, I was able to work remote for a week and go help her. It was a long drive, which gave me time to think. How can I help my daughter? I knew nothing about MS; only that a dear friend of mine who had MS had passed away just the year before. Since I had been looking into changing my eating, which was horrible (I hated vegetables), and was reading about the Paleo lifestyle, I figured she can benefit from it. After telling her about it, we decided to try it. Within 3 days her energy levels increased, which prompted me to Google search “Paleo for MS”.
The Miracle That Saved My Daughter’s Life
The results brought up a Ted Talks with Dr. Terry Wahls, who discusses how she reversed MS with nutrition. I immediately bought the Kindle version of the Wahls Protocol, which my daughter followed diligently. Within two and a half weeks, she no longer needed a cane to walk. Her symptoms began to reverse themselves, and today she is healthy and free of all her MS symptoms, without ever taking any medication. She even had another baby! I hope her story can help you or anyone you know who is dealing with an autoimmune disease.
I’m not a doctor and am not giving you medical advice. Doctors mean well, it’s not their fault. According to this article on USNews.com,
On average, U.S. medical schools offer only 19.6 hours of nutrition education across 4 years of medical school.
That’s why it’s important to inform yourself. Do your own research and search for others who have had success reversing autoimmune disease with nutrition. In conclusion, making healthier choices will not kill you, so go for it! What’s the worse that could happen? Read my blog on eating clean to get you started.
