The top autoimmune diet page on the internet (No other site has this much info to offer)
Inflammation is caused by infections, allergies, anger, chemicals and toxins. Individuals exposed to chemicals, toxins (poisons, mold) are at increased risk of inflammatory diseases (autoimmune). By decreasing inflammation one decrease the rate of ageing. Vegetables, almonds, colored fruits, honey, organic milk are protective foods. Do not consume an excess of any particular food. Humans are not similar and everyone needs a different diet. Some people need a tailored diet. Thus every region on earth grows particular foods in particular seasons specifically for appropriate nutritional needs for the inhabitants.
CDC says, "Scientific evidence shows that consumption of saturated fat, trans fat, and dietary cholesterol raises low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad" cholesterol, levels, which increases the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). According to the National Heart, Lung, & Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health, more than 12.5 million Americans have CHD, and more than 500,000 die each year. That makes CHD one of the leading causes of death in the United States". Our statement is that by consuming essential fatty acids you can lower the lipids without any adverse events. More details in our E-book.
Trans-Fat or Hydrogenated fats are contained in cookies, cakes, fried potatoes and candy bars.
One should eat organic food and avoid processed food. Hot dogs have been associated with higher cancer rates
For those who say red wine helps in heart disease. The answer is Vinegar provides all the benefits of red wine without its toxic problems. In general alcohol is toxic to nerves, brain and liver. Red grapes are also healthy for snacking.
The best drug on Earth is Oxygen. It is considered a drug in the US and thus requires a doctors prescription to be dispensed. We cannot survive a millisecond without oxygen. So breath as much as you can, deep breathing every morning will get you going. Try to live closer to sea level as the oxygen saturation is higher. (No prescription no pharmacy involved). If you live at sea level and decide to visit the mountains do not go hiking on the first day. It takes time for your body to produce more red cells or assimilate to the higher altitude. If you have cardiac, autoimmune disease or diabetes avoid high altitude. Half of the world's oxygen is produced via phytoplankton photosynthesis. The other half is produced via photosynthesis on land by trees, shrubs, grasses, and other plants. Oxygen is lower in concentration at night that is why night is natural time to rest. Higher Oxygen concentration during the day is for daily life activity and matches the to maintain the higher metabolism. During summer months the oxygen is higher as compared to winters, (more green leaves and grass produce more oxygen. Why are we less active on a rainy day? No sunshine, no photosynthesis and less oxygen. (Learn to adjust your life to days and months).
Higher indoor air pollution happens in homes with coal burning and open fireplace than in homes with central heating.
The concentration of oxygen in the air is the same at all altitudes, but atmospheric pressure--which determines how much air enters the lungs with each breath--does decrease with altitude. As less air enters the lungs, the body tries to compensate by breathing faster and deeper. This begins a chain of reactions that can result in altitude sickness.
Carbon dioxide levels are now 27 percent higher than at any point in the last 650,000 years. There is a higher concentration of Carbon Dioxide under a tree at night. (A location to avoid, at night, don't sleep under a tree). One of our patients was disoriented by just sitting under a tree at night.
Start your day in the morning with a glass of water. Life on Earth will not be possible without water. After Oxygen water is the next most important substance required by the body. Drink a total of 8 glasses of water a day, Iced tea, water, lemonade, tea, milk).
Use a water filter in your home, if you drink enough liquids the liver and kidneys will help remove some toxicity.
The third most essential substances required by the human cells are sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Then are present in food.
In place of multivitamins I recommend a teaspoon full of honey (organic, non filtered). Vitamins are required by those who are deficient. For those who are healthy there is little use of vitamins. I see people swallowing a ton of pills in the morning. The question is what are the benefits?
Breakfast means breaking the fast and is the most important meal of the day, should consist of oatmeal with milk (recommended), along with teaspoon of organic honey. Alternate with a fried egg. Add some blue berries, walnuts and almonds. A slice of toast made from full multi grain bread should be avoided by people with Celiac disease. (Avoid white bread). Avoid white sugar and candy. Brown sugar is much better then white. Drink green tea in place of coffee. Tea has antioxidants and taken three times a day is very beneficial for health. Green tea is more healthy and taken four times a day will keep you healthy and reduce inflammation. The highest grade of fuel for our body is carbohydrates (organic not refined) take them before heavy physical activity and mental activity. A chocolate bar can help you pass the test.
For snacks between meals use fruits and nuts, apples, banana and water. Those of you who are going to do extreme exercise they need to take a high load of carbohydrates before the event. This helps the body in providing readily available energy. Otherwise the body has to turn into anaerobic mode does not sound good.
For Lunch eat vegetables & protein diet (chicken, fish, well cooked beef ). Along with fruits and water to replenish your fluids . The best lunch will be green salad mixed with fruits and nuts with a dressing of vinegar. Men need to avoid Tofu (tends to increase feminine hormones). No Soy Foods for men.
For Dinner again eat a vegetables & protein diet (Chicken, fish, well cooked ) with vegetables, fruit and water is recommended. Remember to use full grain bread. Avoid the temptation to eat desserts. Instead use fruits. The best dinner will be green salad mixed with fruits and nuts with a dressing of vinegar.
Chew your food well , chewing food in the mouth will allow more absorption of vitamins from the sublingual area. Eat slowly and chew food to small particles before swallowing . This helps avoid choking. Don't drink and breath at the same time. Will put enough fluid in the wrong pipe to give you a scare and tears.
We also recommend eating brown rice. The polished white rice has the bran coating removed and has lost most of its nutrients and Omega -3.
All the vitamins and supplements are found in food. Thus we recommend that you get your vitamins from fruit, milk , honey and vegetables. The most common vitamin deficiency seen in clinical practice is B12. If you have tingling numbness or weakness your doctor may check the B12 level in you. If the level is low they will prescribe you a B12 injection. The alternative is sublingual B12. Majority of studies have show that more people die from excess vitamins and not from deficiency. So avoid popping multiple vitamin pills daily. For those who insist on a multivitamin just take one multivitamin a day. Some people self prescribe B6 for their neuropathy. This may lead to excessive high levels of B6 in your body and result in a permanent neuropathy.
The best exercise for someone who has Polyneuropathy is to use the stationary Bike or simply the exercise pedals which you can place next to your favorite couch. Use them for 10 minutes at a time four times a day. THIS WILL REDUCE PAIN AND IMPROVE STRENGTH. This exercise also improves circulation. Best of all it can be done in the security of your environment. The next best thing is walking and if extremes of temperature bother you use the local mall. Mark Bower walks in the mall and has also talked to the security personnel there and is part of their team.
Remember the Brain and nerves can only consume carbohydrates so pure protein diets may drop some IQ points and cause Gout. Many people have landed in the ER due to pure protein diet.
For stiffness, pain in the body use a icepack rub it on the painful area then stretch that area by moving your extremities. This is followed by applying a hot towel on the same area, (moisten a towel with hot water and apply it over the stiff area).
Processed meats increase the incidence of cancer.
Vinegar provides all the benefits of improving blood flow similar to alcohol but without the hangover. Alcohol causes a neuropathy, myopathy and liver toxicity. (When consumed in large doses). Some scientist have reported that a single glass of beer is able to destroy millions of neurons. Alcohol makes neuromuscular disorders worse
