  • Just received this email from Brooke Goldner, M.D. (GoodbyeLupus.com) about her latest free Webinar:

    .

    "Hi

    I am so excited to be teaching more online classes! After my last group of webinars I got so many messages from people who tell me that they are feeling amazing after applying the information I taught them!

    That is why I do this!

    You may already know my story of how I completely reversed Lupus in myself almost 13 years ago using a my Hyper-Nourishing Healing Protocol for Lupus Recovery.

    You may wonder, is this kind of extraordinary disease reversal possible for you or people you know?

    That is why I created my seminar, Goodbye Lupus: Case Studies of Real People who Reversed Chronic Disease with Supermarket Foods.

    I have been teaching this seminar all over the country at conferences and Veg Fests, but I know many of you can't make it to these events, so I wanted to teach it online for all of you at home that want to learn.

    In this powerful webinar, I will introduce you to real clients and patients of mine that have recovered from various inflammatory illnesses, from Scleroderma, Lupus, Sjogren’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes, and even HPV and pre-cancer of the cervix.

    .

    In these jam packed sessions, you will learn:

    β€’ Class 1 - The 3 Foods that are Making You Sick Right Now

    β€’ Class 2 - The 3 Foods that are Essential for Healing

    β€’ Class 3: How I applied those steps to dramatically transform the health of real people

    β€’ Also Learn How to rapidly reverse inflammation in 4-6 weeks.

    β€’ Every Class is Followed by a Live Q&A to answer all of your questions about health and healing.

    .

    Dates & Times:

    Thursday 8/3/2017 @ 7:00pm pacific (8:00 pm central, 9:00pm eastern) Tomorrow!

    Monday 8/7/10 @ 7:00pm pacific (8:00 pm central, 9:00pm eastern)

    * "Hi

    I am so happy that so many of you showed up tonight to meet the real people who have healed and are currently healing using my hyper-nourishing healing diet using just supermarket foods!

    Unfortunately there were a lot of technical difficulties today, and I am sorry about that.

    Sometimes technology just doesn't cooperate no matter how many times it has worked just fine in the past!

    Thank you to all of you who stuck with me through the technical problems and stayed to the end!

    I appreciate your patience and all the wonderful comments and messages about how inspired you are by what you saw and learned tonight.

    Unfortunately, one of the glitches I just discovered is that the replay is not working properly, :-(

    Because of that, I am going to do a LIVE REPLAY for those of you who missed it.

    That's right, I am going to do the whole thing over again for those of you who missed the first one, because I promised you that you would be able to watch it after tonight, so I am making good on that promise!

    It will be on Monday 8/14 at 7pm pacific time.

    Thank you kindly for any updates, MM. πŸ™

    .

  • Hi Kai

    Dr Goldner's straight forward approach is easy for me. People I've spoken to about the diet say they couldn't do it, give up their food is unthinkable. Green smoothies are not their fav.

    Nothing surprising, I'm positive I'm healing. I have no pain since starting the green smoothies and raw diet 3mos ago.

    My RA Dr told me to eat healthy and get my nutrients from food rather than taking vitamins/supplements. I told her at my last visit that I was on this diet. She seemed ok with it and we discussed reducing my meds. And she did reduce my MTX. And talked about reducing my Humira to once a mo rather than twice monthly.

    My next visit is Sept.

    I'm not perfect and eat out dinner w friends occasionally and eat chicken avg once a month eating out. I don't notice any adverse reactions from stepping off the diet whenever I want.

    May I ask, are you following the diet? Are you an RA patient?

  • Wowza!! πŸ˜ƒ

    How wonderful is that?! 🀣

    Feeling so well you've been able to reduce MTX!! 😳

    And, there's talk of reducing Humira?! 😯

    Outstanding! Thrilling! πŸ€—

    Well done you!! πŸ‘ . . πŸ™Œ . . πŸ€œπŸ€›

    (Kick that RA to the kerb, girl!! πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ )

    .

    _____

    Yes, I like Dr. G's approach too. πŸ‘

    Intensive nutrition via green πŸƒ smoothies 🍹 , whole foods πŸ₯—, etc..

    (So much overlap with other plant-based approaches, think we're pretty much all in the same arena 🏟 , under the same umbrella β›± . πŸ‘ )

    Very understandable. πŸ™ Palates unused to green smoothies 🌿🍹 can balk 🀒 .

    Yet, once we get used to the initial 'yuck' factor 😝 β€” there's no turning back.

    The way we feel β€” our 'results' β€” speak for themselves. πŸ€—

    .

    _____

    Simply being pain-free 🚫 😫 , able to move πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ•Ί , or merely think clearly πŸ™‡β€β™€οΈ πŸ€” without muddling in brain fog 🀀 πŸ’­ is a blessing. πŸ™

    Yes indeed, we'll keep on drinking our green 🌿 (sludge) drinks 🍹 , munching & crunching our raw veg πŸ₯— πŸ₯’ πŸƒ . . . πŸ˜† 😁

    We feel better 😊 (no matter what anyone says πŸ’¬ πŸ’¬ πŸ’¬ ).

    Our QoL (Quality of Life) is improved. That's what counts. 😌

    .

    _____

    Yes, my rheum./ medical team πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈπŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ also encourages 'healthy eating'.

    Yet, (laughably) that means 'different things, to different people' . . . πŸ˜‚

    Guess we're 'left to our own devices' to figure 'that bit' out . . . 😯 😳 πŸ™ƒ

    Agreed, ideally relying solely on food is 'the way to go'. πŸ‘ πŸ‘

    Unfortunately, there are times in our journey when (severe) deficits πŸ’€ in nutrients require us to 'supplement' with vitamins/ supplements πŸ’‰ πŸ’Š β€” short term (or long term).

    Physician-prescribed (high dose) Vitamin D (hormone) πŸ’Š (for example), can get us over a hump when we've lapsed into severe deficiency πŸ’€ . [Additionally, being chronically ill 😡 (for some time) can tip us into 'anaemia of chronic illness' 😴 😞 , so we have to default to supplements in an attempt to recover/ restore our bodily system. Ingesting even increased quantities (piles) of food alone can't provide the required (nutrient) 'dosage' to restore steep πŸ“‰ deficits. 😯 ]

    We can eventually wean off some of these vitamins/ supplements provided we 'improve' πŸ“ˆ (physician-monitored) along the way. πŸ‘

    Think as we get over 'the worst of it' 😡 πŸ’€ , supplements fall wayside & nutrient-dense, whole foods, smoothies, etc. meet most of our nutritional needs. πŸ€—

    .

    _____

    I know, I know . . . none (few?) of us are perfect 🌈 β˜€οΈ πŸ¦„ πŸ˜‡ . . . πŸ˜” πŸ˜„ πŸ˜‚

    We all have our lapses. 😜 😬 ☺️

    Thankfully πŸ™ , though, we've learned how to 'get back on track' πŸ›€ & recover β€” and learn to laugh at our foibles 🀑 & forgive ourselves. πŸ™ 😌

    Thank gawd you can step off your diet whenever you want & don't experience backlash!! πŸ€— (What a blessing!! πŸ™ ) Yes, indeed, bet it's much easier when eating out with friends to not have to worry about relapse. πŸ‘ πŸ‘ How wonderful is that!? πŸ˜ƒ πŸ€—

    .

    _____

    Yes, am a patient β€” RAer/ multi-autoimmuner as so many of us are πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§ .

    Have had good fortune 🎰 with plant-based/ lifestyle approach (migrating into PP) β€” several years in, after starting off with 'anti-inflammatory' 🌿 foods.

    (Wild stuff! πŸ˜ƒ Who'd a thunk it?! 😯 πŸ˜† )

    Doing far better now than realised possible. 😳 πŸ™ƒ No complaints. Merely persevering & working toward improving even more since tasting 'wellness'. (Can never go back to 'the way it was'. 😱 😩 )

    Tangentially: In hindsight, don't think we fully realise just how unwell we are (while in the midst of illness 😡 ), until we've had an ongoing experience of improvement/ recovery. πŸ€” (Perhaps that's 'nature's way' of 'keeping us going' in the midst of unwellness? πŸ€” Dunno. . . πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ )

    Blah, blah, blah . . . πŸ’¬ πŸ’¬ πŸ’¬ ☺️

    Anyhoo, delighted you're doing well, MM. πŸ€—

    And, delighted your rheum. πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ encourages you to 'eat healthy' & 'get nutrients from food' in preference to supplements β€” & doesn't discourage (pooh pooh, or naysay) your dietary approach. πŸ‘ πŸ‘

    [Ditto from my rheum., who doesn't understand what I'm doing (yet thankfully doesn't discourage either). Typically parts with the words "keep doing what you're doing, you're doing well . . . ". ☺️ ]

    Guess we're on the right track πŸ›€ ! πŸ™ ☺️

    Guess we'll keep chugging away . . . πŸš‚ . . . πŸš‚ . . .

    Very best wishes πŸ™ for more good news in upcoming Sept. πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ visit. πŸ‘

    Keep well, dear lady, keep well. πŸ™ πŸ€ 🌺 🌞
