Ankylosing Spondylitis in remission in 3 weeks

Posted , 31 users are following.

Long story short I have been fighting AS for more than a decade. I couldnt walk without the feeling of pins and needle, I couldn't sleep because I was sleeping on pins and needles, my stomach hurt constantly, heart burn all the time, my neck felt like one piece, lock jaw all the time and if I layed down for a while I would get stuck in that position.

after years on embrel and indomethacin I stopped taking all medication two months ago and changed my diet to one that fit me. I can confidently say my AS is in remission and I just had my first burger since starting he diet 30 days ago and had no effect from the burger

i will still continue to stay on the diet becuase I just feel better

i lost 15 lbs in the last three weeks. 138 to 123 and now I'm slowly gaining it back as muscle mass because I can finally work out. 

I spring out of Bed,sleep throug the nite, starting to become more flexible everyday.  I will update every month to keep you guys up to date on how long I can go cured and what limits I can push on food

believe it or not week one two and three of my diet was a rotation or beef bone soup and chicken feet bone soup.  I will continue to update as I go. Cheers

    Hi Elias

    I have been gluten / corn and restrict cows milk much of time.

    I went from bent double in pain, limping with sore hips, lethargy, headaches, stiff neck / sore shoulder blades and rotator cuff.  By 30 I was running half marathons - and still beat my 14 year old in a sprint today at 48

    I started my diet changes 22 years ago at age 26 - I am now 48.

    I am so glad that you too have found that diet change has helped you!  Keep us updated and happy to discuss more - as I am a real bore on the subject!

    Best wishes
