Remedy Ideas

Regime that has helped UCer remain med free

Thanks to Helen S

Helen adheres to a strict regime that has enabled her to remain meds free. Like myself, where possible she would rather use natural equivalents than chemicals that can cause a list of possible side effects.

I'm always happy to promote anything that helps those who are suffering, so it's worth mentioning that Helen is also joint admin for a group that supports people who are juicing and have ongoing illness' like MS and UC (no doubt other illness' too). You can find it at Juicing Support Group

So, her overall regime is taken from the Paleo diet and includes an occasional juice detox plan. The Paleo (Paleolithic) diet (also referred to as the caveman diet or hunter-gatherer diet) is a modern nutritional plan based on the ancient diet of wild plants and animals. It's argued that modern human populations eating traditional diets, similar to those of Paleolithic hunter-gatherers, are largely free of disease.

Helen prefers to have her main meal at lunch times so that the food intake isn't too heavy at night.

She does a juice detox every so often and has tried the 3 day and the 7 day - the 7 day having the best results.
