Lupus is a sobering condition. However, if this is your diagnosis, I’ve good news for you. By reducing underlying contributing causes, you can profoundly minimize its effects and progression.
If you are suffering from lupus or an autoimmune disease favor easy-to-digest meals. By enjoying healthy and lighter dishes you free up your energy for important repair work.
For example, it takes minimal effort to extract nutrients from soft, well-cooked foods like porridge or soup. When your overall energy is limited, don’t squander your digestive oomph in a wrestling match with a slice of pizza.
Your goal is to rebuild your immune system and strengthen yourself. Fortunately, a good diet builds your foundational health. My lupus clients do best with balanced meals including meat. Indeed, a bowl of chicken soup imparts more energy than does tofu soup or pasta. It’s imperative to identify and eliminate all allergens which may include all grains, dairy, eggs, nuts, seeds and soy.
With lupus, your digestive system is extra sensitive. Pamper it and you’ll feel better. If you wish help implementing a healing diet, consider a Face Reading & Diet Consultation.
My Clean and Free ebook provides support for identifying and eliminating foods that trigger your flare-ups. It includes weekly menu plans and 37 gluten- and dairy-free recipes.
A critical dietary supplement for people with lupus is essential fatty acids (EFAs) from fish or flax oil. From both my experience and research, I find fish oil is superior. When there is an EFA deficiency, the whole body declines and eventually dies. As their name suggests, EFA are indeed essential.
AVOID OR MINIMIZE THESE FOODS
• Refined, highly processed foods and oils
• Excessive carbohydrates (sugar, grains & even fruit)
• Alfalfa sprouts as their amino acid canavanine exacerbates lupus inflammations
• Nightshade veggies (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant & peppers) may aggrivate lupus inflammation
As with other autoimmune diseases, people with lupus are more vulnerable to viruses, flu bugs, bacteria and other noxious parasites. The Bugs Eating You? Ebook provides practical steps to build your immunity and therefore better resist all disease causing pathogens.
If you’re suffering from lupus you can greatly improve your quality of life with easy to digest, balanced and delcious meals. The many articles and recipes on this web page as well as my books will guide you.
