Many of you may have seen my previous posts on the topic of lupus, diet and lifestyle. For a while I was offering my scientific review paper (Evidence for Potential Nutritional and Lifestyle Interventions in the Treatment of Lupus) for sale. However, sadly it was only purchased by two people and I had to shut down my website on lupus and diet due to lack of finance.
Anyway, it does seem a shame for my hard work to go to waste so I am offering my research paper for free to anyone who is interested in it.
This is a testimonial (http://www.nurturewithlove.com/testimonials/) from Colette about my work
“Dear Ani: Your lupus & nutrition research paper is invaluable! I have searched and searched but not found anything as focused, comprehensive and fun to read on the subject. You have made all the difference to my understanding of how to best manage both the way I eat and the supplements I take in support of my medical treatment. I am so grateful to you for the loving, inspiring and professional way you express yourself in writing. You have empowered me greatly during this past year since my Lupus diagnosis, and made it easier for me to confidently discuss diet, nutrition, exercise and mood swings with my doctors. Thank you”

Before I give out the contact detail I need to post the following:
Evidence for Potential Nutritional and Lifestyle Interventions in the Treatment of Lupus.
Important information about this PDF: this is a compilation of evidence that I have found related to lupus, diet and lifestyle. This paper is not intended to provide medical advice for lupus sufferers. The intent of the paper is to provide information. The information contained in this paper should, under no circumstances, replace the care and direct supervision of a medical doctor. If you are a lupus sufferer it is vital that you speak to your doctor before deciding to change any part of your diet or lifestyle. It is also very important not to take any nutritional supplements without speaking with your doctor first, supplements can interact with prescribed medications. If you choose to use any of the information in this paper yourself I, Ani Richardson, assume no responsibility for your actions, I accept no liability for readers who choose to self-prescribe.
About the paper: After being diagnosed with lupus spectrum disorder I took 6 months away from paid employment in order to research the medical evidence for the potential benefits of diet, nutrition and lifestyle change in lupus sufferers. This is a scientific review paper. In the future I hope to ‘translate’ the evidence into more of a patient guide. You may wish to print this review so that you can take it with you to a doctors appointment, in order to show them the evidence, if you wish to ask them about the possibility of taking supplements. In the paper I cover the following topics:
Omega 3 fatty acids
Depression and inflammation
Obesity and overweight
Optimism, gratitude, forgiveness
If you are interested in this paper than I am happy to email it to you. I am not charging for this! For my contact details and email address please visit my website: nurturewithlove.com/contact/ email me with the subject line “Lupus Research” and I’ll send the PDF to you as an attachment. I’ll also attach an article I wrote about lupus and diet for the Cambridgeshire Lupus Group newsletter.
