Newbie here. 63 year young male and have PMR sinds 5 months and went 4 months ago from more than 4 yrs Keto to Carnivore to counter attack PMR. When I was on Keto I overdid the so called superfoods, which happend to be extremly high in Oxalates. Now on carnivore but my PMR symtoms are still severe and wake up in the early morning with severe pain in my shouldets and hips. Clearing of oxaltes can take up to a year so still 8 months to go, according to my own diagnosis. I walk everday one hour, do light work in the garden, swim short distances and move my joints as much as possible which is all very helpfull during the day. Besides this I started a week ago the breathing technics of Wim Hof (the iceman) every day and the icebad every otherday..This gives tremendous relieve but sofar only for 1 or 2 hours. Hope overtime that the benefits will last longer. Anyone tried this as well? The pain is bad, and not getting enough sleep but most worrying is the inflamation damaging my body. Tried Ibufroven but this is pure rat poisson and prednision is just no option as I don't want to complicate my health any further. I ordered LDN as a last resort incase the Wim Hof methode is not helping enough. Hope to get it in 2 weeks. Anyone of you using LDN?
Also ordered Epson salt for bathing in hot water. Does this gives you relieve?
