Dietary Advice for a Viewer with an Autoimmune Disease | Jordan B Peterson

I have systemic juvenile Idiopathic arthritis. You mentioned your daughter has something akin to it and a diet helped It with her fatigue. May I ask what diet she used? Cheers from Calgary. If you look at Michaela Peterson, “Don’t eat that” That’s her blog. And she has a lot of advice there about diets that you could try. And, you know I would say, do it with some hesitation and caution. But that seemed to help her a lot.

    And a regular physical activity. Makes even the body sorted.

    My mom studied to be a MD, 60 years ago.

    Though she did not make it (had kids instead) she kept up with her reading as she loved it so.

    As she has gotten older, her digestive system has gotten markedly worse and there are fewer and fewer foods she can eat. After careful study (and experimentation) she came across a book that gave her consistently accurate results as to what she can eat.

    I hope your daughter will find interest in this book, Professor:

    Wow that's funny, I just found out a week or so ago that I've got PANS/PANDAS. The diet I'm on is brutal and I can't stand how restricting it is, but it's just until I get the antibiotic. I was in a weird way happy when we figured out that I had it, because it accounts for almost all of the problems I've had all my life, i.e. ADHD, OCD, anxiety, depression, ticks, even this really rare thing I've had my whole life called dysgraphia. It's basically a fancy way of saying I can't write well to save my life. I always thought I would just have to exist with all these things and that they'd just have to hold me back my whole life, which was really depressing. But apparently all of it is curable, which is absolutely amazing. Too bad I can't eat gummy bears, though.

    @operaopera is a great cooking show for those on the auto immune diet

    I posted before about having UC, since I was 6.. IBS, Crohn's disease. Basically my digestive track was a big swollen heap of pain. leading to colon cancer at age 17..
    2 years ago I went low carb. Green veggies heavy, and did this for 8 months. I did not eat fruits or honey at that time.
    I wish I could express how much of a miracle this was in my life. You honestly can't understand severity of pain when it is constant for 30+ years until the moment you wake and it's not there. It still makes me cry in gratitude.
    I added in other fruits and vegetables slowly. Pulled out ones my body reacted to.
    My crutch: cheese, I'm sorry I can't give it up. I only react to it when I eat fruit or honey with it, so I simply chose one or the other in a 4 hour window.
    I know for most this IS the game changer. But not for all. It also depends on cultural background to a certain extent.
    I like most of the suggestions on "don't eat that!"
    I will not go back to eating grains or processed sugars. Every time I indulge, I'm in pain for a week.

    There is good evidence that avoiding all animal products reduces the symptoms of autoimmune diseases according to Dr. McDougall and others.

    I've increased my grain intake (lots of rice, corn and real wheat, not much oats), increased starchy roots like potatoes, yams, did not cut out dairy products nor drank soy milk, cut out chicken and pork, increased sea food (beef consumption stayed the same) and my irritable bowl syndrome that persisted for months (lost 26 pounds in only 2~3 months) went away. I've returned to my old diet and i'm not suffering from intense diarrhea again so my guess is that the diet may have not been the cause but exacerbated whatever problems I had. it was interesting because I did the opposite of the usual "cut out carbs, eat more veggies, no dairy or meat" advice people get and it actually helped, everyone's bowel is different i'd guess

    This is straight up Good Guy Jordan. No psychological or political relevance at all, just helping people with diseases.

    I highly recommend The Plant Paradox by Dr. Stephen Gundry for insightful, readable, and extremely helpful information on food/gut health and the connection to a variety of disorders triggered by leaky gut, etc.

    I improved a lot when I stopped eating meat I am not vegetarian I eat some chicken or steak a few times a month..

    JP should become familiar with the HHV-6 epidemic. It's a virus that has been causing autoimmunity and immune disorders for over three decades. The history of the politics and science of HHV-6 are in this book.

    As someone who has UC and has spend loads of times in facebook groups and forums I can say that diet is something really individual. You can find almost any diet and people with UC saying it helped them, some people go great on plant based while others do very well on low fiber. I am of the type that can eat an ordinary diet without trouble. Just like any other person I do better on healthy foods, get your 150grams of vegetable and don't consume more than 30g of sugar a day, that sort of thing. But my condition is absolutely not influenced by whether I eat beans or meat or diary. Meds helped me. I did well for 5 years on fruit/veggie juicing and restricting sugar but UC still send me to the hospital and I only recovered once they started giving me meds.
    Also people should be really careful about radically changing your diet. You can really mess up your body if you cut out entire food groups, which you don't want on top of your autoimmune disease. You could also create a bad relationship with food, where you start to fear food and fear eating, which is also not good on top of your autoimmune disease especially when you are experiencing flare ups and you need to be able to sustain your body with extra nutrients to help the healing process.

    Also, if food caused many of these diseases wouldn't that be easy to prove academically? Couldn't you just have someone fast for a week ? Shouldn't that immediately clear up symptoms if it was caused by diet? Like if a celiac stops eating gluten the effect is instantly noticeable. I don't buy the "big pharma is hiding the cures maaaaaaaaahn" thing, I think doctors and people who work in the health industry are one of the most noble and greatest people on the planet and there are millions of them. And doctors rarely think diet causes it because there is no real science to indicate it does, and it is not as if they haven't tried.
    That is not to say you can't have great improvement by changing your diet. But it might not be that your disease was caused by diet but that your diet made you feel bad overall and you got a disease on top of it, so when you change your diet you start to feel a lot better but the disease part is still there, only managed way better by a healthy body. Especially for chronic illnesses this is pretty important to know, because as a general health principle you don't want to over medicate but under medicating is also dangerous since the disease is chronic and might be boiling up under the surface without symptoms and then erupt in giant flare ups that can send people to the hospital.
    In general people who have autoimmune diseases do better on medication than not in the long term and that is probably because even though diet can help tremendously it doesn't address the real autoimmune problem as good as meds do. For every great story about someone getting in remission because of diet there are also horror stories about people who went on a diet, got great improvement, stopped taking meds and a couple years later end up in the worst flare of their life, sometimes with disastrous, horrible consequences.
    But I keep an open mind, it might be possible that it is something in our food or something in the fertilizers or whatever that causes problem with a group of people. But I remain very skeptical and I think people should be really cautious about radically changing their diet.
