My husband has AS and we have successfully managed to REVERSE the damage to his spine through a starch-free diet while lowering his lactose consumption as well. You can find more out about it on my blog - www.farmerkskitchen.com (there is a section along the top called { K's Reboot }. I also list many starch-free recipes we have been eating along the way! Hope it helps smile
