Your Nutrition?

How closely do you follow the recommended eating guidelines that you've heard about?

I was reading Dr. Burrascano's Advanced Topics in Lyme Disease today and was getting really upset at some of the ideas that i'd have to give up pasta etc.

I have cut out caffeine totally, and I cut out artifical sweetners. I am trying to cut down on my sugar intake the best I can. But no wine, OMG, I might cry. I could do it for the course of treatment, but would it have to be forever? AYE.

Anyway enough of my wingeing. I just was curious how others have adapted their diets.

Thanks.

Re: Your Nutrition?

I don't think that you would have to be as strict with your diet after you are feeling better from the Lyme and your immune system is strong. It wouldn't hurt to keep going with the diet, to keep your immune system strong.

I find the diet hard for me. I'm not supposed to have dairy, sugar, milk, bread, vinegar, etc. Those things are in so many foods. But I don't have caffine, and I do the best I can to avoid those foods. A few days ago I went to the food store and got snacks and stuff that I can have which don't have those ingredients in them and I think that will help me.

Re: Your Nutrition?

Hi Aimiloo. It really is important to do everything possible to strengthen your immune system during treatment. Many people who have Lyme benefit from eliminating processed carbs and sugar. Maybe you could try whole wheat pasta?

Alcohol is not good during treatment for many reasons, including it cancels out the antibiotics.

You do not need to follow the guidelines forever, but you should follow them during treatment for the best results.
