A recent study found that an elimination diet protocol was able to reverse ovarian failure and vastly improve symptoms associated with autoimmune Sjogren’s syndrome. The diet was gluten, dairy, and sugar free. The diet was for four months. The patients menstrual cycle normalized, her hormone levels normalized, and her inflammatory markers normalized…
the restoration of normal menses was caused by reduced inflammation in the ovarian tissue and supports the hypothesis that the gut immune system can influence autoimmune disease and inflammation.

This published study is a very typical result in my office where we treat chronic autoimmune disease. Identifying food intolerance and allergies is a critical step in the health restoration process. If you are chronically ill and your doctor has not looked at these areas, ask him or her to do so. I he/she refuses, fire them and find a doctor who is willing to take nutrition more seriously.
One cannot achieve and maintain health eating unhealthy foods, and one man’s food is another man’s poison.
In good health,
