Because I like to eat and I hate taking drugs. And because the seven drugs I take fill up important space in my stomach that could be more importantly filled with cake frosting. I hope that cake frosting is part of this diet. If not then I will write the Cake Frosting Diet Book.
A good book about to challenge your fight against Lupus with the natural approach.
This book was interesting. It has testimonials from people describing their life with Lupus, RA and Fibromyalgia before and after this diet. This diet is a low fat, whole food, vegan diet.
