DIETS FOR AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE
‘’Lots has been written and lots will be written in the future about the role of diet in autoimmune diseases. The truth is that standard medical opinion looks down on the importance of diet both in the prevention and treatment of these diseases.
Each and every one of us has an opinion and nobody is in possession of the absolute truth. With such diversity of stances, it seems all but easy to devise an “ideal” diet for patients. Chronic diseases can vary immensely amongst individuals and the same foods aren’t always harmful for all people. In the following paragraphs we’ll go through the most well-known diets for treating this type of disease to then offer our own suggestion.’’

The diet suggested by Stop Autoimmunity Diet for autoimmune diseases:
1-No cereals: wheat, rye, oats, spelt, corn, brown rice and pseudocereals such as quinoa or amaranth. White rice seems to be safe and is recommended.
2-No Legumes: all types of beans, lentils or soy (especially in thyroid disorder cases).
3-No dairy: mainly milk, though depending on tolerance, elimination of yoghurt, cheese and butter (in that order) might be needed. Ghee and kefir are recommended.
4-Omega 3 to 6 ratio: up your consumption of salmon, trout, mackerel, sardines and other fatty fish. Reduce intake of vegetable oils such as that coming from corn, rapeseed, palm, etc. Though a ratio of 1:3 is technically considered healthy, try to strive for 1:2 or even 1:1.
5-Moderate intake of fructose and cut out added sugar: less than 12 mg/day. Get more calories from eggs, ghee or avocado instead of from fruit. Remember that excess fructose causes non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Doesn’t need to be said that fructose syrup, a staple in junk food, is also most definitely out.
6-Get some soluble fiber: white rice, sweet potatoes or potatoes, though in moderation due to their thigh carb content. A good source of low-carb fiber source: NOW Psyllium Husk 500 mg,500 Capsules
7-Vitamin D and Magnesium: magnesium is abundant in green leafy veggies but it’s difficult to reach the required amounts. For vitamin D, eat eggs, salmon, trout or other similar fish. Remember to also get plenty of sun from direct exposure without protection (at least 15min per day). Always consult your doctor before taking supplements. Vitamin d3: NOW Vitamin D-3 5,000 IU,240 Softgels
8-Optimum hydration: drink mineral water with small quantities of himalayan pink Salt. Pink Salt: Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt, 2lbs Extra-Fine Grain
9-Eating raw and fermented foods: home fermented kefir, sauerkraut or gherkins are good ways to start. If the condition allows it (so, not for IBS or IBD), try to eat many veggies raw. Suggested Probiotic: Nature's Way Primadophilus Fortify Daily Probiotic, Digestive Health, Extra Strength, 50 Billion Active Cultures, Acidophilus, Guaranteed Potency, Delayed Release, 30 Vegetarian Capsules, Gluten-Free
Probiotic - PURE: Pure Encapsulations - Probiotic G.I. - Shelf Stable Probiotic Blend to Support Healthy Immune Function Within the Gastro Intestinal Tract* - 60 Capsules
10-Intermittent fasting: and interesting option may be the 16/8 rule, which consists in eating two meals in an 8 hour window and fasting during the remaining 16.
