The rheumatologist will never support you in going NSD. When I've explained her that it really works, and she sow that(she even put on my papers: "AS in remission"), she told me she can't recommend going NSD to her patients. She is a doctor and she is prescribing medicine in the way she learned from the school.
It is so crazy. So many people could benefit from NSD, but nobody is interested in it. It makes no money ...
So much pain could be spared.
I have a friend suffering from AS, and he prefers medicines instead of not eating potatoes and bread. Crazy world.
