I am so empowered by articles and blogs like this one. I do feel it for myself that if I eat things for my brain and for my liver, I feel a whole lot better overall and my RSD symptoms are much fewer. Leafy greens, cabbage and avocados. Lots of avocados. I feel those are the foods that help me the most (in addition to fish and eggs). Also last night after I had sushi and green tea for dinner there may or may not have been marshmallow Peeps in my belly.
The portion of this most important for RSDers, I think, is Paragraph 3 of this link: “A plant-based diet improves inflammation, weight, and vascular health.”
“A recent research group in Pennsylvania studied 63 individuals with heart disease who followed the Ornish program and compared them to a group of 63 people who did not follow any particular program. While the control group experienced no improvement in health, the Ornish group lost weight and blood pressure fell by about 10%.
At 12 weeks, researchers found that 26 genes were exhibiting different activity in the Ornish group. After a year, 143 genes were doing the same. The genes that promoted inflammation and blood vessel injury were significantly reduced in activity. The control group showed no improvements as they maintained their standard diet during the year.”
