Dr. McDougall does it again! Yet another success story emerging from his wonderful clinic. I was desperate to take anything that could help me feel better and stop the disease from destroying my joints. The methotrexate caused all sorts of side effects because it suppressed my immune system. (you need your immune system. please do not destroy it!) For the next nine months, I spent most of my time on the couch due to the pain and fatigue caused by this disease.
(Dr. McDougall) … advised me to start the McDougall program diet and avoid gluten and soy as well. I ordered his book The Starch Solution and started following the diet immediately. Within two days, I could feel a huge difference. The fatigue and pain that had been part of my daily life for the last eight years disappeared. The next week I went off of the methotrexate, and I haven’t had any joint pain or fatigue since. Whole story here: Amy Fewel Cures Herself of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
