Diet is emerging as a cost-effective treatment for chronic inflammatory conditions, including autoimmune disorders such as lupus. There are reports showing that fasting and plant-food diets improved clinical symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, another autoimmune condition. There have been a number of studies on the effects of individual dietary components, especially those found in plant foods, on lupus. Only three published case reports exist that describe dietary intervention beyond specific nutrient supplementation on lupus patients. These reports showed that patients had positive improvements after implementing dietary changes (research in animals further supports these findings).

Participate in a Case Series:

TrueNorth is looking for a few motivated lupus patients to participate in a case series to thoroughly monitor how this intervention will impact the course of their condition. If you are interested in participating in this series, please contact us by September 1, 2019 at: tnhresearch@truenorthhealth.com or call: (707) 586-5555, extension 1142.
