Like I supsect most people who are experiencing the symptoms we do and are faced with the prospect of a chronic disease, I have been doing lots of internet research. Some helpful....most not. I stumbled upon an American site that suggests that all people with autoimmune disease have this because they have to that point eaten the wrong foods. This site offers (for a cost) a programme of spiritual guidance and fasting. Food is then re-introduced and involves only raw fruit and veg. It claims to cure autoimmune disease including Lupus. Now I have a bit of a problem with this. First it seems to suggest that those of us with a malfunctioning immune system have been doing it all wrong and second it is preying on the vulnerability of having to cope with a chronic disease. I am a great believer in a healthy balanced diet and exercise. I have been a vegetarian for 24 years and have been involved in sport and exercise for most of my adult life. So what exactly have I been doing wrong then?
