Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM) Support Group

Anyone else considering diet and lifestyle changes?


#1

I want to share some books I’ve read and would recommend.
Dr. Sarah Ballantyne’s book The Paleo Approach–Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body. She also blogs at thepaleomom.com
Dr. Terri Wahls’ book The Wahls Protocol
These are actually books about diet and lifestyle change for chronic autoimmune conditions. I know that ADEM in an acute autoimmune condition, but the ideas still apply. We are moving our family toward this gradually.

Read "The China Study" as well. There is conflicting data as to the best diet for autoimmune disorders.

Just flicking through things this morning and notice that a lot have discussed different plant based diets. My adult daughter had a nut allergy prior to ADEM but she also acquired a severe allergy to lentils after and I have heard this happen to another person who had ME/Lymes Disease and acquired several other food allergies along the way. So please be careful.
