Hi Barbara Rene’ (@barbararene) – Think happy thoughts about PMR going into remission. My first occurance was in 2007 and it took my several years to get off of prednisone which was in July 2010. It went into remission and didn’t rear it’s ugly head until last August. So, I’m hoping it doesn’t take me 3 years to get off prednisone and that it goes into remission forever. I’ve been focusing on eating a more healthy diet and have incorporated the nasty green smoothie for breakfast 4 to 5 times a week. I do know that diet and nutrition play a significant part in autoimmune illnesses. I started on my path after finding and reading The Wahls Protocol book by Dr. Terry Wahls. She has an amazing story of how she was able to significantly improve the symptoms of her MS – http://terrywahls.com/about/about-terry-wahls/. I thought it was just another diet book until I read a little more about her.

Here’s hoping for happy thoughts that your PMR will go into remission very soon!

John

Hi John,
I too started the Wahl diet about 2 months ago.
Do you think it has helped you in any way?
After 3 weeks I noticed the constant soreness in my shoulders went away and the minor pain in my knees too disappeared. Now 2 months into it I'm disappointed to say my neck and knee pains are back.
I'm going to give it another month and probably stick with part of the diet and reintroduce some of the foods. It's really a strict diet!!
Thanks for any advice,
Carol
