WHAT CHANGES DO I NEED TO MAKE IN MY DIET?
|The optimal diet for most people is an alkalyzing diet of veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, and whole grains, while limiting meat and dairy and avoiding anything processed... especially refined carbs (to help control the fungal component of coinfections). |
While all of that is basically true, it is also true that there is no one right diet to fit all people. There are several excellent articles on the Logos website that address this issue in detail, such as One Man's Meat is Another Man's Poison, Metabolic Typing and its Role in Weight Loss, and You are What you Eat.
It is wise to start educating yourself and to start learning from your own experiences as well. Soda is a huge no-no. not just for Morgellons sufferers, but for general health.
Read labels, or better yet, make it from scratch.
Stay away from unhealthy fats (they are in most processed foods). Olive oil, coconut oil and organic butter are great. No canola, soy, safflower, etc. - Vegetable oils have actually been linked with the rise of heart disease over the last century, not-saturated fat as we were lead to believe. Good quality (grass fed, organic) beef and buffalo are great for you (in moderation).
And exercise!!! Super important.
Remember, there is no one diet that is right for everyone... we are all different. Some are fast oxidizers; they do well with a higher percentage of protein in their diet. Slow oxidizers need more carbs.
The science behind it gets complicated, but it all boils down to taking control of your food intake - quality and quantity - and listen to your body to see how it responds to different foods. Then make changes accordingly.
Start with the foods God provided for us and leave all the boxed and artificial stuff alone. All it does is feed the sickness industry.
