I don’t really understand why so many people are scoffing at this.
About three years ago, my mother saw a fairly renowned nutritionist in our area.
At this time, my mother had been on depression, cholesterol, blood pressure meds, and sleeping pills for over well 20 years. My mom used to be sad. All the time. She never slept. She never felt well. Shit kind of sucked for her.
After my mom saw the nutritionist, she completely cut out caffeine, sugar, and all forms of grain from her diet. She was told to drink a shit ton of water and eat a shit ton of vegetables.
My aunt saw the same nutritionist a few months later. She has RSD, a rare and complicated disease which causes almost unbearable pain, almost constantly, to which their is no cure. The nutritionist told her to do basically the same thing as my mom, but with a bit more specifics due to the severity of her condition.
My mom has been off of every single one of her medications (yes, even the depression medication) for three years, and has not added any of the stuff she cut out back into her diet. She has lost about 70 pounds and looks about 10 years younger. She says she has never felt better, physically or mentally, in her whole life.
My aunt still has bad pain days, of course, but her good days have greatly increased in number and she attributes it to her changed diet. Nothing in the past that doctors could do for her ever did anything lasting…it was all just a temporary band-aid for the pain. She finally feels like she has a fighting chance and that is incredible to see. Mabe it’s all a bunch of bullshit, but to see someone who was so hopeless look at me and say “I think I can do this thing”, is pretty fucking awesome.
So, yeah, it might seem ridiculous for people to claim that food can heal, especially when you’re in the middle of battling something serious…and if you’ve found something that works for you that has nothing to do with your nutrition, then great. But don’t be too quick to dismiss the idea that nutrition can play a big role in healing for a lot of people, and don’t shame those who want to go down that road. For many, it really does work. I’m not claiming it can work for everyone…I don’t know enough about anything to say that. But I’ve seen it change the lives of two pretty important people and I just think that’s pretty cool.
