I know most doctors dont pay much attention to diet but my feeling is it is paramount in treating ANY disease. I work as an RN in the medical profession so I see the training doctors get. It involves very little attention to diet. The reason: very hard to really measure against any disease.
So its up to you (yes to become responsible for your own body) to determine how diet may be helpful. for myself I reduce the amoumt of wheat and part. dairy. Dairy is very toxic. No milk. No ice cream. Only once in a while a little sour cream and cheese.
I also take remicade now and previously was on enbrel but mostly for my Ankylosing spondylitis.

I'm so totally with you. Diet is extremely important! I eliminated wheat and dairy completely and i'm following the eat right for your blood type book, and it's helped me tremedously. it makes shopping hard but after 3 weeks of hard core label reading i'm slowly finding things i can eat.

For me, the only change in diet I made was to "eat good food".

I tried to avoid foods packed with sugar, tried to eat more in the way of vegitables and fruits. Started cooking dinner EVERY night, stopped eating pre-packaged, processed convenience foods and cut out the "snack" rubbish from my eating habits.

Just cleaned up what I was eating, trying to focus more on what our species has been eating for centuries and removing "21st century foods".

Why do you think "dairy is very toxic?" Are you lactose intolerant?
