Gluten Intolerance Diet and Lupus

My mother has lupus and I have been researching the effects of a gluten free diet and urging her to try this.

I guess my overall question is -does a gluten free diet work?

I have been watching her suffer with her aches and pains for my entire life. I think its well overdue that she felt better.

Lupus and a Gluten Free Diet
by: Kerri Knox, RN-The Immune Health Queen!

I can certainly feel your pain and I agree that your mother certainly deserves to feel better. That's why I do what I do. Obviously, western medicine has failed your mother and people like your mother.

We all put our trust in this system that 'looks and feels' like they have the answers- yet your mother has suffered all of her life with lupus. She is not the exception, but the rule for chronic health problems.

Unfortunately, western medicine is not going to change anytime soon, so people have to take it upon themselves to find answers- and answers, like a gluten free diet, that your doctor will scoff at and tell you it won't work.

So, does a gluten free diet work for lupus symptoms?

Not in everyone and not all of the time. There is no way that ANYONE can guarantee that any treatment, whether it is medication or a gluten free diet, will help anyone for anything!

Over the years of working with clients, I have found that the vast majority of people with ANY health problem benefit from a gluten free diet. But how MUCH your mother will benefit depends upon a lot of factors- how well she sticks to the diet, how sensitive to gluten she is, how good her nutritional status is, etc.

I also find that JUST doing a gluten free diet helps most people with Lupus, but they also need to make a lot of other significant changes as well.

Correcting nutritional deficiencies with a High Quality Multivitamin, optimizing her Vitamin D Levels and getting rid of toxins in her environment are all important steps in getting better.

I urge you and your mother to get the Real Food Summit to get you on the path to eating the RIGHT way for good health. Their tools will get you on the right track.
