On a trip to Florida last year, I read Joel Furhman's 'Fasting and Eating for Health', out loud in the car to my husband. He doesn't believe it, doesn't want to change his ways. It makes me quite ill when I know there is a docotor, or naturapath who lives 1 hour away who completely cured himself of colitis and RA
over 25 years ago with fasting and proper nutrition. I even set up and offered to pay for a one hour consultation - my husband would not go. Oh, dont even get me started, it makes me so ill. The meds cost about 700.00 per month and include methotrexate, plaquenil, arava, prednisone, daypro and lortab.
I hope you do well with your fast. From all that I have read, the autoimmune diseases do best with a diet that does not allow dairy, meat, and wheat....in addtition to no sugars or excessive fats etc. That's all the stuff my husband loves and is just not willing to give up.
Best to you.
