Possibly Something That Could Help Erythromelalgia & Chronic Disease?




This woman is a Doctor who became wheel chair bound with degenerative multiple sclerosis (MS). Using a form of paleo she actually seems to have cured herself of it! Her idea was that having a very nutrient rich diet void of the bad stuff would help, and wow did it ever. This is not just your average person, this is someone that is an MD, that did tons of research to try and save her own life, and after "modern medicine" failed her, she found diet...

While there is no guarantee that this well help Erythromelalgia, things like this give me hope that we can cure this disease with diet. I keep going back in our mind to our brief experience with juicing, while that was not a sustainable long term solution, those 10 days were some of the best Tracey has had in a very long time. We have personally seen more correlation with how she feels based on what she eats then with anything else. I do not know if we will be able to cure her with this, but it is something we have started to try before and this video strengthens my resolve to try it again (right this time). What I am thinking for us is to start with some kind of intense juicing to cleanse and supercharge the immune system, followed with a Paleo lifestyle...I will keep you posted on what our final plan is.  

If you are suffering with EM or any chronic disease then you may want to look into things like Paleo or Juicing...I am not a doctor, so I can't tell you that you should try this or that it will help, but it may be worth a look! 

Have you tried anything like this with your erythromelalgia or chronic disorder? Has it helped?

  1. Hi there!
    Sorry to hear of your family's suffering. I feel for you both. I have small fiber neuropathy and it has been excruciatingly painful. I am on meds but have recently started Paleo and it really seems to be helping.
    I will keep you updated if you'd like. My thoughts and prayers are with you!

Cure EM (Erythromelalgia)

So as I mentioned in a previous post, my wife (Tracey) has Erythromelagia (EM for short). I am going to try and sum up this condition and how it has affected our lives in as short of a blurb as I can. Here it goes...

Picture from my wife's blog- i'm (not) superhuman
This condition began to show up around May of 2010 when my wife's feet would randomly swell, turn red, get hot to the touch and become extremely painful. She describes it as being lit on fire. It is actually considered one of the most painful conditions out there. It is also very rare, which is why we brought the diagnosis to our primary care doctor. And for us it was just one more problem on a long list of things that had happened to Tracey's health over the past few years.

At first the flares were fairly infrequent, and she mostly noticed them when it was pretty warm out or when she had been walking for a while. Over the past 10 months, EM has taken control of every part of our lives. Tracey now has to work…

This is healthy...No this is...

For years I've been trying to eat healthy with self admitted terrible success... And this post is not to blame anyone, because honestly I have no one to blame but myself for my mostly poor eating habits.

What this is about, is the frustration of eating "healthy"... At my most recent count I believe there is approximately twelve million different diets or ideas on how to "eat healthy"... about 3 times as many as there are actual food items in existence! For every food item it seems there is at least one diet, book or person saying it is good, and at least one saying it is not good...Or at least this is how it feels sometimes.

So my question is this, how do you choose what is actually good, how do you move past the confusion? I have read so many different books and theories, all of which sound so great while reading them, until you read the next one that is either a slight variation (at best) or the complete opposite of what you just read... and of course is just…

Panera Bread: Açaí Berry Iced Tea

Why I got it:

Had some time to kill and it looked refreshing. It is a regular fountain drink on the menu as well so it has free refills.

Cost: $1.79

Quick Thoughts:

It was inexpensive and refreshing with just the perfect hint of berry. I prefer mine unsweetened but you can add sugar if you would like.





Would I Get This Again:

YES

Why:

The combination of cost and refreshment was perfect. I love good iced tea. There regular black tea is also very good but this was the first time I've seen this flavor here.

Where have you found good Iced tea?
