I'm bumping up my own post because not a single person has replied!
Is there really no one else doing the Autoimmune Protocol? I would love to hear from you.
I am still following primal/AI protocol very strictly. Not seeing any results in my symptoms yet -- still having severe joint pain and nerve pain.
I want to add that I'm doing lots of supplements right now -- fish oil, cod liver oil, vitamin d, Mark's primal blueprint Master Damage Control formula, probiotics. I finally raised my Vitamin D level to the normal range (50) after trying for 1 1/2 years, and have also raised by B12 level to above normal, so I feel great about those two things.
I have only had one cheat this whole time -- sucking on some licorice after my chemotherapy treatment last week (Rituxan). It had gluten and corn starch. Otherwise I am 100% compliant (except a few times I've had plain cashews because I was really hungry -- any thoughts on cashews and AI protocol?).
I'm committed to staying the course for at least 3 months to see if this works, but would love to hear some success stories to inspire me! It's hard to eat so restrictively and still be having so much pain, but maybe it just hasn't been enough time yet.
