Gold Coast Cure?

Anybody ever heard of the "Gold Coast Cure?" It is supposed to cure auto-immune diseases like MS. What exactly is it? What do you have to do?

Re: Gold Coast Cure?

I had never heard of the "Gold Coast Cure" so I did a web search just now. There's quite a bit of info out there ... it is the name of a book by somebody who has MS and available on the popular sites that sell books.

The premise seems to be based on a combination exercise and the "Swank Diet". The Swank Diet has been around for a while ... I remember finding "older" books about it when my husband was first diagnosed.

My general impression of the diet was that it seems like a healthy eating plan that controls fats and processed foods. It won't hurt you, but not sure if it will help w/ MS although its supporters would claim otherwise.

If you search for "Swank Diet", you'll get lots of info. Good luck.

Re: Gold Coast Cure?

Thanks. This wasn't my idea. My aunt is into all sorts of holistic healing and not real into conventional medicine, so I told her I would ask about it!

Re: Gold Coast Cure?

I bought the book a couple of months ago. Basically it will tell you to limit your S fat and eliminate your Trans fat.

Hasn't really seemed to make that much difference to me, however, I'll admit, I don't follow it exactly.

Probably worth looking into, but a miracle cure, that I'm not sure about.

Re: Gold Coast Cure?

That's basically what I thought it was. I'm pretty much trying to eliminate a lot of fat anyway because I need to lose weight. Thanks.
