When I was really sick and lost 75 pounds in six months last year, my son told me about
a "diet" that basically consists of eating natural organic foods, pesticide free grass fed beef, lamb, fish (wild caught salmon mostly) chicken, etc. You can read about
This way of eating was the beginning of my recovery back to health before I was treated with natural medicines.
I also learned about
a well known Naturopathic Doctor, Dr.Schmid, who himself had Lyme disease and got better by eating natural foods. He used to be a strict vegetarian until he learned about
Weston Price who did a lot of research on various cultures, the way they ate, etc.
Below is a link to an interesting article Dr. Ron wrote titled, "Recovering from Vegetarianism". His website has a lot of interesting information on it. Much of it was quite an "eye
opener" for me when I started reading it and began to adapt to this way of eating. If you read nothing else, read this:www.drrons.com/diet-chronic-disease-and-optimal-health.htmwww.drrons.com/recovering-from-vegetarianism-toc.htm
Also, Sally Fallon, author of, "Nourishing Traditions" has written an excellent book that has helped a lot of people get healthier just from the way they eat www.amazon.com/Nourishing-Traditions-Challenges-Politically-Dictocrats/dp/0967089735
All of the above information is not really considered "Politically Correct" in terms of today's philosophy of "healthy eating", but it my opinion, this is the way that works best for me and I believe it's made a big difference in my health. It used to be that anything with coconut oil was thought to be a bad thing, but the truth is, coconut oil is one of the most healthiest oils you can eat. It's especially good for those of us with Lyme disease.
Off my soap box now. Read the links and come to your own conclusions. I think you'll find this interesting reading, even if you disagree with it, and I'm sure a few of you will.
