Lor is yet another autoimmuner who brings continued hope & inspiration to me. 🙏

Perhaps she'll do so for you:

.

Lor's meal photos caught my eye.

I've been asked, "isn't what you eat boring, bland, yuck? Don't you feel deprived?

Like Lor, that's just not been my experience.

I just eat different foods (from what I used to) that are equally tasty & satisfying. And, most importantly, keeps my inflammation down.

.

_____

Keeping my inflammation down allows me to function — to be mobile 🚶 , able to think 🤔 , have energy ⚡️⚡️ , & be pain free 🤗.

What more could I ask for?! 🤔

[Perhaps restoration of a derailed life? A 'memory wipe' of decades of pain, fatigue, immobility? And, a pony 🐴 ? 😁 😆 😉 ]

.

_____

If you're interested in changing your diet & think it's going to be boring, tasteless, tiresome . . . maybe have a look at Lor's meals?

See what you think.

I learn more about the possibilities of food combinations & broadening out meals just by seeing photos!! Yumm m m . . . 😋

Thank you kindly, Lor. Much, much appreciated. 🙏 🍀 🌺 🌞

    Lor shows me what can be done for some of us. 👍

    Try as we may, meds just don't work for each & everyone one of us — no matter how much we want them to, no matter how many years we keep trying . . .

    For some of us, they create more difficulties than they resolve. ☹️ 😔 😞

    (The 'risk rewards' balance ⚖ becomes overwhelmingly imbalanced. 😳 )

    For those of us who run out of med options, what do we do? 🤔

    What do we do when we reach 'the end of the line' after everything fails? 🤔

    .

    Lor spent:

    • 8 years of her 20's in autoimmune disease . . .

    • 2 years improving/ healing . . .

    .

    I learned of her experience through a podcast I follow (& continually learn from).

    .

  • If Lor's journey interests you, consider viewing, Crushing RA and Psoriasis Symptoms - Lor Goes from Drugs to Plants:

    Reversing Psoriasis and Rheumatoid Arthritis With Lor transcript: paddisonprogram.com/reversi...

    .

    She's yet another inspiration to me, a young lady still in her twenties. She's gleaned a bit of wisdom (over her lifetime of illness) from hard-earned experience that she kindly shares with us.

    Wishing you a long & wonderfully health-filled life, dear lady. 🙏 🍀 🌺 🌞

  • Lor found these resources helpful in her plant-based research:

    • Forks Over Knives (movie): google.com/search?as_q=&as_...

    • The China Study (T. Colin Campbell): google.com/search?as_q=&as_...

    • Paddison Program (Facebook): facebook.com/RheumatoidArth...

    • NutritionFacts.org (Dr. Michael Greger): nutritionfacts.org

    .

    She has been following a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet for 2 years during which she had the epiphany: ". . . I can do this . . . ". 🤗

    She notes it's a 'spiritual journey' & a realisation/ awakening of self love, 'I am worth it', 'I am enough'. 👍

    [As eye-rolling-ly 'hokey' as that may sound to some, it's a simple, profound truth for others. It's lovely hearing these words of 'realisation' coming from someone having a personal 'awakening'. ☺️ 🙏

  • For dietary/ lifestyle (d/l) discussions from a variety of perspectives, these posts may be of interest:

    • Talking to NRAS about diet: healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... [Highly recommend taking time to read through the 70 + comments for anyone seriously considering implementing a d/l approach (along with their meds). 👍 Found andyswarbs last comment (at bottom of page) insightful/ profound. 🤔 😌 ]

    • For All Autoimmuner's: FREE 7-Part Documentary with Tom O'Bryan: healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... [See 'replies' for clarifications about d/l approaches in relation to 'leaky gut theory', etc.]

    • Feeling sorry for people here: healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... [Again, highly recommend taking time to read through 120+ comments for anyone seriously considering implementing a d/l approach (along with their meds). 👍 🤔 😌 ]

    • A new day, let's see what we have learnt: healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... [This 'follow-up' post (& its 50+ replies) are equally as interesting/ insightful.]

    Lor's journey truly is amazing 😳 — especially for 1 so young. 👩

    Delighted she figured out what works well for her; may we all be so fortunate. 🙏

    Hope you're doing well, Sandrajb. 🙏 🍀 🌺 🌞

    .

    [Very glad you thought Lor's experience was worthwhile posting too. 👍 It truly is amazing what's going on around us — individuals experiencing remarkable changes by twiddling with 'this 'n that'. Inspires 'realistic hope' of our body's ability to move toward healing. 🤗 😃 ]
