The following is reposted from Dr. Cowan’s newsletter and is the testimonial of a patient of his who reversed his Ulcerative Colitis with the Gut and Psychology Syndrome diet. It just goes to show that the healing power of food and right eating is substantial.
From Dr. Cowan:
The GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet and low-dose naltrexone continue to be my mainstays for the treatment of any auto-immune disease, such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s, Hashimoto’s, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and even asthma and eczema. These therapies work in a complementary fashion, the GAPS diet restoring our inner ecology and eliminating exposure to the main proteins (like gluten) that trigger auto-immune disease, while the naltrexone boosts endorphin production, thereby normalizing the immune response. Working with this combination, I have seen many remarkable responses, including the one here.
