Hi
I'm not the computerwizzard I thought I was, so finally, after quite some weeks I found the button to start a new topic.
I'm new. Well, still reasonably new. Hello smile . Since I only posted a few posts untill now I though I could still take the opportunity to introduce myself and say thank you all here for the support you guys gave me without you even knowing it. I've been reading this site for a long time before I became a member.
I started the NSD in 2011 and it has changed my life. I've posted my successtorie some time ago. I'm so much better then I was.
It is thanks to you guys here that people like me stay positive and give it a try, this diet. So thank you again!
Almond.

Hey Almond,

I'm glad you posted an update on your experience. We're always interested in how NSD is working out for different folks, good or bad. I'm glad you're having good results.

Hi Almond,

Welcome to KickAS I am glad to hear you are feeling better, that is great news. Wish I could read your story but I know English and just a little Spanish. It amazing a change in diet can bring such relief.
Take care!!


Diet change has improved my RA. I feel best eating raw veggies and some fruits and avoiding grains, sugars, nightshades, beans and dairy. Sed rate dropped from 65 to 19, but it took over a year.

WELCOME, Almond:

Wonderful that You had good results with the diet, and just always remember that we will be here when it falters; AS is still always the rocky road.

Thank You, for joining,
HEALTH,
John

Thank you very much DragonSlayer. Can't explain how much this site means to me. Well, actually I can: it made THE difference between being sick and on medication and now being hopefull and fighting to get my health back.
About AS creeping back; yep, as a matter of fact I've been in a terrible flare again the past two weeks. I had to use crutches to walk. Couldn't figure out what it was and I almost thought that despite of my healthy diet this disease is doing what it wants anyway.
I've always been able to eat a little bit of carrot until now but because I felt so bad I started testing everything I put on my plate again this week and yesterday I found out that some of our carrots were terribly starchy. I could punch myself! Been eating them a lot the past few weeks (also raw). But on the other hand: I found the reason why I flared so terribly, I think... So carrots are out for me. Period.
Well, you learn by making mistakes. I hope I'll be able to walk properly again soon. Had a hard time but I won't give up!
Almond.
