[The Triad of Health – all components are related and can affect each other]

To start with we looked at the Triad of Health (previously talked about here). As I said before my mother-in-law had been cutting corners and putting herself and her health on the back seat for too long and it had finally caught up with her (remember how I said in the video the body was very adaptable upto a certain point and then it just breaks – this was a classic example).

So we needed to address the chemical (nutrition) and mental (emotional) aspect of her triad of health.

We applied the principles to health and healing that I outline in my book The Autoimmune Disease Solution Handbook (link opens in a new window).

We totally cleaned up her diet. Out with all the bad processed, pro-inflammatory and nutritionally empty poisonous food and in with the fresh, healthy, nutritionally dense and full of vitality foods.

More fresh vegetables and fruits. My secret breakfast supershake to start the day off on the right foot. And a heavy addition of good fats (not all fats are bad, and if you want any chance of healing your autoimmune disease, knowing how to get ‘good fats’ into your diet is paramount) and the right supplements.

There are some great supplements on the market BUT there are also a lot of junk ones, trying to capitalize on the popularity of proven supplements.

The supplements I chose for my mother in law were proven to fight inflammation, restore balance to her body, calm her nervous system and supply her with key ingredients needed to optimize recovery.

I will go into diet and supplements in more detail next email.

From her history I guessed she would have some toxicity and some further testing confirmed it. So we incorporated some advanced detox protocols also.

Despite her discomfort, a gentle regular exercise routine was started that also incorporated some stretching. Deliberate exercise is something she had never done – talk about changing habits!

Breathing and relaxation methods were incorporated to help de-stress. Plus she felt she would benefit from some counseling to deal with the previous deaths of her brothers.

I am not going to lie and say it was smooth sailing, but my mother in law saw the bigger picture and understood the value in correcting the root cause of the problem and not just addressing the symptoms.

Here is what they commonly say about Polymyalgia Rhuematica (PMR)

“Treatment is often required for 2 years or longer, and some people with PMR need to remain on small doses of steroid tablets for many years. But even then they are usually able to enjoy a fairly normal life. Relapse is most frequent in the initial 18 months of treatment, but may occur later after stopping steroid treatment.” – NHS

From my research I learned that it usually lasts 2-5 years.

Fast forward to today.

She is over 90% better symptomatically and her blood tests also show a remarkable drop in inflammation markers (the key indicators of polymyalgia).

She can do all her household chores again. She loves her new diet and is addicted to her secret breakfast shake. She has joined a few local walking groups and has recently started yoga and Tai Chi.

[Helen -Before and After]

Helen, also lost a ton of body fat. People hardly recognize her. The one downside is she had to buy a new wardrobe (I don’t think she really minded!). Her skin also took on a healthy glow. Lot’s of people hardly recognized her and she constantly gets asked what she is doing to ‘look so healthy and great’.

All this was done in under 6 months!

They say everything happens for a reason. And I know I would never wish my autoimmune disease on anyone else.

But I can’t help but think, maybe it was a rude awakening for my mother in law. Maybe it was the kick up the pants she needed to start paying attention to her health and stop cutting corners. It is a terrible way to learn a lesson, but isn’t that how life sometimes works?

Better this happen, something that is reversible and changeable rather than some permanent health issue. And for it to happen now at 65 years young so she can live the rest of her days healthy, vibrant and full of life.
