This is for all of those out there dealing with autoimmunity or chronic illness. You can do anything you set your mind to! I truly hope that this empowers those with autoimmune, thyroid, and digestive issues to take back their health and reverse their conditions.
Let's keep spreading awareness about the impact that diet and lifestyle changes can have on overall health!💚
"I have been diagnosed with Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Then all that goes with that; insomnia, sleep apnea, IBS, eczema, etc. I was diagnosed about seven years ago and was on all types of medication for the various symptoms. My diseases got really bad last year due to the chronic stress in my life, and I believe that is what caused everything to go into overdrive.
I have been struggling with doctors; they could never give me answers and said the pain would be there forever. In September last year, I weighed 140kgs (308 lbs), the heaviest I’ve ever weighed and was seeing doctors and Physios weekly. I tried many diets over the years, and after reading The Autoimmune Solution, I began to adopt the principles and diet advice from The Myers Way. It was a tough, dark road, but in June this year, I woke up pain-free for the first time in my life. By September I had lost 50kgs (110 lbs). I have since lost more, 58kgs (127 lbs) in total, and I feel amazing.
I still get chronic muscle pain, but far from the pain, it was. It’s bearable now. I keep following this diet strictly, saying if Adam and Eve wouldn't have recognized it, I won't eat it. The audiobook came into my life at the perfect time; I was ready to give up. I saw it as my last shot to get out of pain, and the next step was suicide. It’s a difficult diet to follow, hard to say no to all the food you want to eat. It’s the only solution to autoimmunity that I have been able to find. And I feel dealing with autoimmune diseases has made me mentally strong enough to push through with the diet and see the results. Once I experienced the painlessness, the diet got easier and easier. Thank you, your book really did save my life."
