I used to be on the raw food diet, ate organic and healthy and I was still experiencing a low immune system, breaking out, and a chronic yeast infection that I've had for over 5 years. I've tried treating the yeast infection with antibiotics, a watered down hydrogen peroxide douche, and boric acid suppositories. None of the treatments stuck. My yeast infection returned with in a day or two of stopping the treatment. If I ever had more than one day a week of an early work day, I came down with a sore throat.
I'm so ecstatic to report that this diet has cured me of my yeast infection. I can't believe it.
It was difficult for me to return to cooked foods because I loved the principles of the raw food diet, but being cured of the yeast infection has made me a believer. Obviously my body wasn't receiving the nourishment it needed to heal itself.
I gave this 4 stars only because the book is a constant advertisement for her products. I realize that a person needs to make a living, but I felt like it was a little overkill. If you do a Google search you can find other ways to make cultured vegetables without using her starter kit. I use 1 liter of water to 2 TB sea salt and pour it over a mixture of chopped veggies and let it sit on my counter for 7 days. So far, it's worked great. I also purchased water kefir granules 2 years ago from an online shop that only sells that and they are still healthy and creating wonderful drinks. I will eventually use them to make cultured coconut water.
I went through some crazy sugar withdraws during this first week. I felt like I was a drug addict. That has been the most difficult part of this adjustment. Teas with flavored stevias (specifically vanilla cream) and my recipe for homemade healthy kettle corn has helped me greatly.
I am currently studying several gluten-free dietary theories. I am a holistic health coach that specializes in celiac disease, autoimmune & inflammatory diseases, Fibromyalgia, food allergies & sensitivities.. etc...
I myself have been living with Celiac disease for all my life.. most of my life it was undiagnosed and untreated.. thus a crazy cycle of autoimmune disease and inflammatory disease began. I have now been in remission from everything for 10-15 years... but of course, I still can not eat gluten/ Or any grains at all. I have discovered that I have issues with other foods that are cross reactive. So, I am one of many living with Celiac Disease that can not just go on a "Gluten-Free Diet".
Many Doctors and Registered Dietician's do not really know their patients still suffer and think that maybe they are just not following the diet. Truth is, there is so much more to celiac disease, as well as any autoimmune or inflammatory disease. It is so hard to a specialist that knows that, let alone great information about that.
Gluten, Wheat & Such can lead to so many diseases, conditions and so many issues. So many people suffer.. and it is really sad!
It is a great read and a great book to have if you are one of the many who Suffer. Suffer from any inflammatory or autoimmune disorder, celiac disease, lack of energy .. or other. Autism.. Mood swings... Etc..
know that could just be the beginning of your search and your quest in healing.
Like I said before.. Not one diet works for everyone! we are all so very different. Just like a basic gluten-free diet might not work... You might have other work to do first (Like Clean House... Candida Is A MONSTER! ).. Even steps for that is in here.
I love how she steps! She also walks you through them.
I also study GAPS, Paleo, SCD.. and anything gluten-free. And when I say study, mean study. ..LOL
