My doctor is trying to treat me without steriods because of health problems from over use of steriods shots when I first started getting sick 6 years ago, my adrenals are not in good shape.
he is working with a naturalpath doctor and I am going thru a detox for PMR, GCA and aluminum.
I asked a doctor 5 years ago if I could have PMR and was told no, my sed rate was not high enough. They did not even test anything else. I went thru back surgery, a number of physical therapies, pain meds, etc, with no help. Each doctor would come up with something else to try until I just stopped. Started going to a ND and she helped some but she was the one who listened when i told her what was happening. I also have Lupus.
I am already gluten free which has helped some but not enough.
Could you please send me any info that could help? My hips hurt so much that I can't sleep, walk up steps or hills well. My whole body actually aches.
Is this diet possible for some one that is gluten free? Seems most of the recipes call for wheat or fake meats which are mostly gluten. I have been on an organic diet for a long time. Grow my own veggies but do drink organic milk products and eat some grass fed meat.
Thank so much for posting. Gives me encouragement that I am on the right track.
