The Auto-immune Disease Solution they’re not telling you: Episode 5 – The Products Destroying You and Your Family

This mind-blowing episode is on the effect that our daily environmental exposure to toxins has on our health. The amount of chemicals we are exposed to everyday has drastically increased; up to 74 billion pounds of chemicals are being imported or produced every day in the US alone. Chemical use is being increased at a rate of 3% per year and it is estimated that this figure will be doubled by 2024…!

Of the 100.000 chemicals introduced since the 1940s only 5% of these has had their safety tested. Once introduced ‘successfully’ they no longer need their safety checked. Industry is not expected to prove these chemicals safe – it is only if proven detrimental that they are looked into! All US citizens now have at least 108 different chemicals and heavy metals in their body.

The toxins and heavy metals in our food, beauty products, cleaning products and general environment disrupt the communication of cells in our body – misaligned messaging between the wrong cells and organs takes place and the body starts attacking itself in self defense as a result. We not only need to detox our bodies of chemicals but remove them from our environment altogether. Some of these chemicals bind directly to human tissue representing the first stage in auto-immune diseases and cancer.

Our food is toxic. Supermarket chicken, even organic chicken is bathed in chlorine…! The mineral depleted soil our food grows in makes us vulnerable to the toxicity. The dyes used to colour the sheets we sleep in and the flame retardants they are loaded with have hormone distruptors. Hormone distruptors alter the function of hormone pathways in your body. Instigating autoimmune diseases. Here is   Please watch this documentary:

Swank Vs Wahls

I am reading Terry Wahls’ book on the treatment of autoimmune diseases with a high fat diet. I have adopted her mega veg/fruit intake and am aiming at 9 cups a day (3 green leafy veg, 3 bright colours and 3 sulfur-rich). I have also cut out all grains and legumes as well as started to eat meat again…following the Swank diet rules as described by Judy Graham in her book Multiple Sclerosis – A Self-Help Guide to its Management and which I summarise here.

I think that the high-fat content prescribed on the Wahls Protocol is too contradictory to the Swank low-fat diet. I am still awaiting a response from Dr Wahls on Twitter about the contradiction between high/low fat – but can see from her webpage that it will not come without money changing hands first.

I think that people with MS (or any illness for that matter) should help one another with their findings instead of charging others for the knowledge. Anyway – that is my view; Dr Wahls obviously has her own.

Roy Swank introduced his diet in 1948 and so many have benefited from following it ever since. In comparison, Wahls’ diet is quite new. Although a high-fat diet has helped her tremendously, according to Swank; following a low-fat diet is essential in order to stop the progression of MS. Seeing as Dr Wahls was unwilling to comment on the differences between the two diets, and given the greater time period covered by Swank’s research; I think it is safer to stick to Swank.

If there had never been a Swank or Wahls… there are still facts to support a low fat diet for the treatment of MS. The illness is most common in the wealthier countries of the world,  and less so in less affluent ones. The exception to this rule is Japan. What do the poorer countries of the world and Japan have in common? A diet less reliant on animal foods than the countries where MS is prevalent. The heavy consumption of animal fat in richer countries has a direct correlation with a higher incidence of MS.

I do however believe that you must believe 100% in whatever you decide to do to improve your health. The mind is our most powerful tool; what we believe is of utmost importance.

Dr Wahls’ book has been helpful nonetheless. It has reminded me of the importance of vegetables – I am eating LOTS more now by following the 9 cup rule. It has also encouraged me to give up all grains – not just gluten ones and I feel better as a result. I am still bloated and need to work out what in my diet is causing this, but I am feeling very positive about these new changes in my diet.

Finally Wahls has introduced me to the notion of nutritional ketosis which provides an explanation to why I feel better when I do not eat.
