NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT PROTOCOL for AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES
With attention also for the Hormone imbalance presumed in LICHEN SCLEROSUS
Developed Jan-Feb 2018 by Nancy K Baumgarten, MLA Hendersonville NC USA (age 72)
Autoimmune and inflammatory issues are best managed with one or another following protocol works best for you; a CANDIDA CLEARING Diet Program, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, AUTOIMMUNE Diet and most importantly, LEAKY GUT[/b] Syndrome Protocol[/b], which appears to be behind all of the rest. Mix or match, these become our new normal. Listen to your body very closely, it has been trying to tell us which foods it disagrees with. Our Liver is a detoxification system all its own, and needs to be consciously cared for on a regular basis - not just once a year.
P.S. "One person's food is another person's poison'. Don't feel compelled to follow any of the above diets strictly, learn your metabolic type and/or blood type, and notice every little thing your body is hinting more closely than ever before.

Anti-inflammatory, autoimmune, and recent research shows that it also helps/cures cancer. Also a specific for thyroid. Required Co-Factors include VIt K2, Magnesium, Zinc and Boron. Take it in the morning. Vitamin D temporarily pauses the production of melatonin, the sleep hormone, so don’t take it at night. Though another Study shows taken with dinner rather than breakfast increased blood levels of vitamin D by about 50% .... Argh.
Co-factor for D3 esp if taking Vit D for extended period (like any autoimmune and/or thyroid patient should be)
Co-Factor with Vitamin D, Boron, and Magnesium. Reduces inflammation and fights infection; skin rashes; night blindness; impaired taste/smell

TAKE WITH LUNCH at least 30 minutes before or after other supplements
Restores healthy oxygen transport. Because of its molecular structure it readily bonds with most other chemicals; and thus removes heavy metals and other toxins from the body. Take at least 30 min. before or after any medication, vitamin/mineral or supplement, otherwise, it will simply absorb your supplements and you will not benefit much from either . Powder works better than pills.
TAKE at least 30 Minutes AFTER LUNCH or after MSM
Helps reduce sugar cravings and produces energy to combat the afternoon "slump"! regulates blood sugar, and helps insulin transport glucose into cells, where it can be used for energy. Chromium also appears to be involved in the metabolism of carbohydrate, fat, and protein.
DINNER….that includes fats
IF you missed taking any of your fat-soluble supplements with/after breakfast, they could be taken at dinner
Omega 3 ALA - Flax Oil
A tablespoon on Steamed Kale is delicious! Either dinner or breakfast.
Raspberry Leaf Tea
Rich levels of an antioxidant called ellagic acid. Raspberry leaf can alter estrogen metabolism, helping to reduce the risk of hormonal cancers caused by 17beta-estradiol. Take any time of day or evening.
BEFORE BED by about an hour
Strong anti-inflammatory; Co-factor for Vitamin D; increases the efficiency of Vitamin D, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C absorption. Crucial for balancing female/male hormones, detoxing the liver, and ridding the body of bacterial and fungal infections. Required for the proper metabolism of calcium, potassium, zinc, copper iron, sodium, as well as Vitamin B1 and nitric oxide. 400- 1,000 mg a day is recommended. If you are using Borax/Boron this supplement is required. If choosing the trace mineral drops option this does not need to be bought separately.
a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain. It helps regulate other hormones and maintains the body's circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is an internal 24-hour "clock" that plays a critical role in when we fall asleep and when we wake up. Sleep before midnight is more restorative, and for LS & other autoimmune diseases we should strive to get as close to 8 hours as possible. Melatonin will help get us there.
MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT PEE BREAK:
IF any of you ladies are on Thyroid medication, THIS is when to take it, so that it doesn't compete or doesn't have to compete with any of our Other Autoimmune/ LS supplements; ALSO it's perfect timing to not have to wait 2 hours after waking to eat breakfast.
