“I'm surprised you didn't mention Hemp Seed Oil. Isn't hemp oil supposed to work better than anything else, by far??? Hemp seed oil is the only oil that has a perfect 3:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3, with lignans. And it is my understanding that autoimmune disease is the primary result of an imbalance between omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids. Consider that the average american has a 40:1 ratio, where as biological requirement is closer to 3:1.
The other thing that causes autoimmune problems is refined sugars, because sugar kills the production an sensitivity signalling of the lymphocytes, so as a result the inflammatory messangers have to over-compensate.
In other words - cut out all the carbs, alcohol, refined sugars - cut out all the factory-farmed animals that get no sunlight and are fed corn. Instead - eat only animals that lived outdoors and were grass fed - this changes to omega 6/3 balance of the animals, and the vit. D levels, etc. and you should be doing the same. You need vit. D, omega 6/3 balance, high protien and low carbs. carbs should mainly be complex carbs - stick to brown rice for ex. wheat and corn will give you problems.”
