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.

I've read this book many times. It's a must read if you are trying to heal any autoimmune issues along with the other books the author recommends. I would add to her list Dr. Graham's 80-10-10 book as well. Low fat vegan with the largest percentage raw fruit & greens definitely makes a difference fighting infections that have made my 30+ years with Lupus a challenge. I've only been following this approach for a few months & I'm noticing many positive health benefits already!

Whatever protein you eat is used right on the spot, so if you eat an incomplete protein, your body has to discard it--it can't save it to combine with another incomplete protein later on. So if you do cross over into vegan territory, make sure you're combining the proper

Reviewed well enough to see that there's nothing new to me here. Stop dairy and refined foods. Go vegan until inflammatory process calmed. Stop flours/gluten. Even water fast, or juice fast.
I'm too enculturated to cut out that much. I'll continue trying to cut out refined foods. 5/31/2009

9/15/2012: I thought I'd looked at this before, and voila, I had! This review I thought this is way too extreme. Not for me.

3/17/2013: I became interest in the JJ Virgin Diet and looked at this again.

appreciate the stories and approach; of course her own personal success story is inspirational. I will try out the recipes on my way to a plant based diet to speed up my recovery
