Do you follow any special diet like Whole 30, Paleo, Ketogenic? Has it helped?
A ketogenic diet is not an anti inflammatory or autoimmune protocol diet. Many of the foods on ketogenic diets are inflammatory. Dairy, eggs, nuts and seeds, legumes, nightshade vegetables, butter and cream. Beginning an autoimmune or anti inflammatory diet can be difficult at first. What you should look up is the autoimmune paleo diet. Once you cut these inflammatory foods from your diet you can slowly reintroduce foods. They tell you which have the least issue to the most problematic like tomatoes. Tree nuts can be a problem because they have a higher allergic response (not the normal nut allergy) but one that increases intestinal permeability. Leaky gut has been a huge contributing factor to inflammatory diseases.
Please do not go with a ketogenic diet. Not good for us. Read the book by Dr Terry Wahl can’t remember the title, right now, but also the paleo mom website has a ton of good information. Read also The Autoimmune Solution by Amy Meyers M.D. she really digs deep into how leaky guy is finally being recognized in autoimmune disorders and autoinflammatory disorders (Spondylitis is not autoimmune but is auto8nflammatory, big difference.} I am an RN. I have also been on the autoimmune paleo protocol diet. There’s much to learn to 7nderstand it. And a ketogenic diet is not good for us because not only is it filled with 7nhealthy foods, but many of those are inflammatory foods. Anything you find on “autoimmune paleo protocol” will give you great information. It is great divergent than the paleo die you hear so many are n these ads which allows them many of those inflammatory foods.
Yes, I do! I follow a ketogenic diet. It has helped me by leaps and bounds. It is the kind of diet you can not just jump into though. You need to research the diet and really weed out the junk info. If you are interested in helpful books I can definitely recommend a couple.
nice, but moose and elk are a bit hard to find in Australia, and I think the local zoo would frown on us going in and craving off a leg or two... Am using Terry Whals book for leads on inflammatory foods to eliminate. though
There are lots of diet books on your favorite sites, oddly enough, dropping the last letter in the search engine brings up many more. Odd. The book, The Autoimmune Solution by Amy Meyers M.D. is inexpensive and I think I will order, my diet over the last few years has trended this way, love my meat though and the crock pot is a great servant.
