How to Stop Attacking Yourself: 9 Steps to Heal Autoimmune Disease

How to Stop Attacking Yourself: 9 Steps to Heal Autoimmune Disease

Commented Aug 5, 2010 at 07:12:25 in Healthy Living

“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.”
