Are other auto immune diseases similar to Crohn's disease & ulcerative colitis?
Yes! They all stem from inflammation in the gut. If you check out meatrx.com, you will see how other individuals have put their autoimmune symptoms in remission through dietary measures. In modern-day society, we are conditioned to see things as normal after a while. For example, we see the food pyramid on the internet and assume it is the optimal way to eat. But in reality, everyone reacts differently to different foods. Also, we need to consider the history of human beings and what we've thrived on in the past. In the past 100 years (in U.S. predominantly), nutrition has been completely flipped upside down in order to help corporations make money.
The news and media tell us what we should eat to be healthy based on "scientific studies." Sadly, the majority of the time, these studies are funded to be biased and to push an agenda. For example, a lot of the studies that talk about the benefits of caffeine are funded by Starbucks and other coffee giants. We end up listening to the media and news, it leads to the public being in an unhealthy state. Now that we're sick, we resort to medication (which fuels the pharmaceutical industry). It's a never-ending loop to fuel the American economy. I'm not big into conspiracy theories, but we need to question what has been normalized over the past 100 years.
