Everything you wanted to know about WFP-BD/L but we're afraid to ask . . .

THE WHOLE FOODS PLANT BASED DIET (Paradigm Shift for Health): paradigmshiftforhealth.com/...

. . . A whole foods plant based diet (WFPBD) is based on whole or minimally processed plants, primarily fruits, vegetables, whole grains, tubers, and legumes. It excludes or significantly minimizes animal-based foods; meat (red meat, pork, chicken, turkey, fish, etc.), dairy (cow/goat milk, cheese, ice cream, etc.) and eggs. Also the avoidance of processed foods is critical. The juices, sodas, candies, donuts, pastries, etc. have been created mainly for pleasure with very little regard for nutrition. As the profits for the powerful American food companies rise there is a direct correlation to the medical expenses our country is spending on disease (not to mention the loss of the local farmers).

The WFPBD (better if considered a lifestyle) has been found to have the best health outcomes based on observational studies such as those presented in “The China Study” by Dr. Colin Campbell.

To highlight this diet it will be helpful to discuss the common dietary types – Vegetarian, Vegan, Herbivore, and Carnivore – and contrast.

.

TIPS

EAT PLANTS – THE MORE INTACT, THE BETTER: The closer you can get the plant as it exists in nature the better. Natural, plant-based foods provide all the essential nutrients needed for a well-balanced and healthy diet, as there are no nutrients found in animal-based foods that are not abundantly available in plant foods (with the exception of vitamin B12). THE FULL PACKAGE!

.

AVOID OVERLY PROCESSED FOODS: Although many processed foods can come from plants the extraction, modification and concentration of sugar and/or oil creates an unnatural product. The perfect balance of nutrients in the whole plant has been destroyed and many refined products are “fortified” with man made vitamins to improve their marketing. AVOID!

.

AVOID PRESERVATIVES AND ADDITIVES: If a food doesn’t naturally decompose it is not a natural food. Stopping the “rotting” of food is good for shelf life but bad for health. GOOD FOOD DOESN’T LAST FOREVER!

.

ELIMINATE DAIRY: The production of milk is a marvelous biological event that is designed to allow the mammalian infant to survive and grow. Once that individual can eat the food adults of that species eats the mother stops feeding and lactation (production of milk) ceases. A calf is born weighing 60 lb and when it weans from it’s mothers it weight 600 lb. COW’S MILK, GREAT FOR COW BABIES, BAD FOR HUMANS (YOUNG AND OLD)!

.

DON’T WORRY ABOUT PROTEIN DEFICIENCY WITH A PLANT DIET: Some of the largest land animals are herbivores (see below). Spinach has more protein per calorie than red meat. American’s protein consumption is approximately 30-35% (of total calories consumed) and only need 6-8%. PLANTS HAVE IT ALL! . . .

    WFP-BD/L can be safely implemented (in conjunction with medications & with your medical teams careful monitoring.

    All FREELY available information for everyone at no cost 🆓.)

    It takes time to listen 👂, learn 🤔, research 📚 , consult with your medical team 👥 & loved ones 👪.

    You learn the process as you go along with 'trial & error' implementation in conjunction with your medical team -- as a safe 'check & balance' -- & continued medical/ medication monitoring).

    [Expense 💷 💶 💵 💴 is not an obstacle. All the information is freely 🆓 available to everyone.]

    Time, energy, ability, motivation, & willingness to learn & try the process can be hurdles to overcome.

    It's a long-term, long-haul process that can improve the overall health of (some? many?) Autoimmuners/ RAers.

    It can influence the course of disease progression.

    Your "mileage can vary . . ."

    It restores 'realistic hope' & a 'sense of control', & makes us 'active participants' in our body's healing process.

    It's a PROCESS for genuinely interested, highly motivated individuals, who desire additional methods to help themselves along the autoimmune journey.

    It's not a panacea, it's not easy, it's not for everyone -- nor does it claim to be.

    For those of us for whom 'the process' does work, it can be remarkable -- life-changing. 🤗

    The information is here for anyone who's genuinely interested in learning. (The information will be here if ever you choose to peruse to it.) 🙏

    If you, your loved ones, & medical team are able to take the time to fully research the WFP-BD/L process, you'll begin to learn, understand, & fully comprehend it. All of your questions/ concerns will be addressed.

    With these free resources & working hand in hand with your physicians, you can embark on a safe WFP-BD/L journey.

    It's doable.

    It's safe.

    And, you continue learning along the way from your own experience & the experience of others.

    _______

    There are WFP-BD/L-ers on the NRAS forum who are doing well:

    Their stories (& the abundant information -- freely available to 1 & all) may inspire you. 🤗 🙏

    .

    [Use of the word "FREE" 🆓 -- does not mean a post is SPAM. It's intended for those of us living within budgets. Free 🆓 equates to: we needn't worry about inability to access useful information because it's 'out of our budget'.]

    .

    Merely my suggestion/ opinion:

    Please 🙏 , kindly take time to carefully examine 🤓 "freely shared information" 🤔 before jumping to the conclusion it's SPAM & 'Reporting' it. For example, taking a moment to skim a contributor's history -- their posts, replies, profile, etc. -- all help you form a sound, well-balanced assessment of a post.

  • Summary of a PP Process/ Experience

    One of the best capsule summaries (I've read) about PP process, see andyswarbs' explanation/ description 'in context':

    healthunlocked.com/nras/pos...

    .

    Even going down the diet route, your starting point must be to consult your doctor / rheumy about the sulflasalazine and either get the dosage changed or move to another dmard. This is your best option for halting progress of your osteoarthritis. I would make that appointment with your doctor straight away because reversing damage joint damage is not going be easy.

    Removing dairy I fully approve of. However depending on your personal history both fruit and soya could be triggers and sadly may be causing you more pain! I would especially be careful of any and all fruit juice right now. Eating whole fruit is much better since the fibre helps slow down absorption and so reduces any sugar rush. But it all depends on the state of your gut and that depends on your medication, dietary and stress history etc that are not the purpose of this forum.

    My belief - and experience - is that your gut is very much part of the problem that is causing your struggles. If you also feel this way then you have to find out what the arthritis triggers are for your body, and that means, in my eyes going through a comprehensive elimination diet. This is not just some haphazard process, because you need to ensure through that process you get complete and great nutrition from beginning to end.

    As you go through the elimination process you also need to know as definitively as you can which foods really are causing your gut problems in its current state.

    If you google diet and arthritis you will see advocacy for paleo/aip which includes high quality meats and fish as one dietary solution. The other main route is one I followed. This is the whole-food plant based approach as promoted by Clint Paddison. Both routes advocate many many more plants in your diet.

    If you are determined to go down the dietary route then you will need 100% commitment. Reasons include

    - some people on this forum have tried various dietary solutions and failed

    - there people on this forum who think diet does not work

    - there others who think (rightly in many cases) that there are people out there who are just after your money

    - NRAS themselves recommend a only Mediterranean diet, following NICE guidelines

    - if you discuss diet both your doctor and rheumy are likely to say "diet has no effect" probably for similar reasons.

    - going through a good elimination process is not easy. My own process stalled and I was so confused. My wife even suggested the dietary approach was not working for me anymore. After taking advice I eventually stopped consuming oils such as olive and coconut and kept nuts to a minimum. Then progress started again and from that day my health never stopped improving.

    Briefly, my own story is that I have had arthritis for 40+ years but it was May2015 when RA hit my body and brought my life to a complete halt. A year later Apr2016 I was hardly able to walk and in a wheelchair. I then started the paddison program, as it is called and by Sep2016 I was able to walk. Because my body was in such very bad shape physically I started yoga in Oct2016. I have done Bikram Yoga every weekday ever since and that has been a totally essential part of my recovery and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

    And that's the other thing. Diet can get you so far, but for my money as and when you can do it good, indeed very good RA-friendly cardio-vascular exercise daily is a must. NRAS are themselves promoting good exercise, but I am not sure they would advocate the intensity of Bikram Yoga, which some yogis describe as 90 minutes of hell. But in my mind, if you can afford it and get to a studio, it is the best exercise, bar none for someone with arthritis.

    Right now I would get your meds sorted to your satisfaction asap. Then do more and more research, deciding what next steps and approach to solving your dietary issues are right for you. Do whatever exercise you can that does not damage your joints.
