During my journey to 100% health, I am bombarded with natural “fixes”, “cures” and “improvements”. Visit sites like Dr. Oz, Dr. Mercola, and Dr. Weil and you’ll quickly see what I mean. Included below are a list of natural remedies I’ve used specifically for my autoimmune disease Ankylosing Spondylitis. Many things that work for me below will most likely work for a person suffering from an autoimmune disease and may help the majority of people suffering.
Gas / Bloating
- Fennel Seeds – relieves gas & bloating + gives you good breath.
Does it work? Yes. MORE RESEARCH
- Fiber Supplement (Psyllium Husks) – a well-known remedy for bowel irregularity. It basically binds the loose stools.
Does it work? Yes, but get the right kind and only if you usually have diarrhea. I use Organic India. | MORE RESEARCH
Inflammation / Pain
- Tart Cherry Juice – antioxidant, reduces inflammation, fights heart disease, and is a good sleeping aid. Drink during dinner / after dinner.
Does it work? I did not see any effects in inflammation and I had a sugar drop taking some one morning (I am hypoglycemic). However, if you’re looking for a concentrated juice for antioxidants, tart cherry juice may work for you. | MORE RESEARCH (Video)
- Arnica Massage Oil – While some good sources have sworn this helps them out, I never felt the effect. Maybe the pain of an auto-immune patient is different than a typical physical sore?
Increases Weight / Bulk – For those who lose too much weight too quickly on NSD + Raw Food.
- Whey Protein
- Hemp Protein
