I have posted a few threads previously about my fiance currently dealing with autoimmune hepatitis. He refuses to believe that diet and lack of exercise are at the heart of his current health problems. He refuses to read all the anecdotal evidence of people reversing their autoimmune problems with the paleo diet and lifestyle changes. I asked him seriously if he really believes that all of these people who have turned their health around are just having placebo effects. He told me that he only trusts scientific, peer reviewed studies. Here's the thing, though. He hasn't even done his own research on his condition. I looked through my arsenal of bookmarked articles from the med literature, and I couldn't find any that talk of reversing or improving autoimmunity with diet. I do have a few Vit D plus autoimmune articles. Anyone have any that specifically study the effects of grain free, dairy free eating on autoimmunity? How do I deal with this?! What other resources can I use? He is totally averse to any mention of paleo/primal. ugh.
No announcement yet.
