Dr. Joel Fuhrman Auto-Immune Protocol

Posted Sep 12 2010 12:00am

In the Eat to Live book and November 2004 Healthy Times Newsletter by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, he outlines a specific dietary protocol for people with autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. I suggest you read the whole book and newsletter, as they are more detailed, but I will outline his autoimmune protocol below.
The key to treating autoimmune illnesses is to obey the
H = N/C formula. Only then can the immune system begin to normalize its its haywire circuitry. - Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Eat to Live

Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Dietary Protocol for Autoimmune Disease

High-nutrient, vegan diet (no dairy), rich in green vegetables
Blended salads/smoothies and blended soups (utilizing leafy greens) to increase absorption of phytochemicals
Fresh vegetable juice (carrots, beets, parsley, kale, and other greens)
High-dose fish oils or plant-derived EPA and DHA (fish oil is best for autoimmune sufferers)
Beneficial bowel flora (A very potent one he recommends is VSL #3)
Natural anti-inflammatory herbs such as turmeric, quercetin, ginger, and bioflavanoids
Multivitamin/mineral, plus additional vitamin D supplementation
Supervised water-only fasting, used periodically, if necessary
Dietary avoidance of salt, wheat, and oil
