Paleo reverses Psoriatic arthritis. Paleo seminars January

This comment blew me away when I read it a couple of days ago. It is from Anya, who has an extremely painful auto-immune condition called psoriatic arthritis.

“Thanks for a great website it was extremely helpful to me in 2011 when I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis! I just turned 41 and was back from Jamaica and BOOM all of these painful flareups moving from joint to joint, taking place over a 4 week period.

The diagnosis was devastating, but coming from years of digestive issues, I had a suspicion I could cure myself using food – the very cause of so many of my problems. Thanks for to the work of this doctor I have healed myself and have all movement back in my feet, knees and hands.

The PALEO diet took 6 months to get me mobile again and walking properly. I am so thankful and very saddened for the millions of people who suffer in pain each day or are medicated when they DON’T NEED TO BE. The pain of a flare up is UNBELIEVABLE = its like you are ON FIRE. Terrible pain and I feel for those who suffer daily with this. My doctor laughed that

I cured myself and said to me “maybe you really never had it” !!!! After series of tests and a diagnosis by a Riverside Hospital Specialist in Ottawa (I won’t say names but I should), she could declare that to me. Very disappointing. Well good luck to all who try this – it is a guarantee that you will heal yourself.

My brain fog went away as well which was a major plus as I’d suffered with that for 10 years, and that was from gluten I realized by following this way of eating. I must keep this up though because if I do have something off this diet I will get a twinge in my wrist or toe as a reminder that the arthritis is still ‘on my back doorstep’. Thank you for sharing his work, it saved my life :)

If only more people with auto-immune conditions knew how powerful diet can be.
