Ever heard that if you have Alopecia and autoimmunity, then what’s considered healthy foods for others won’t apply to you? What’s the truth?
Typically, known autoimmune diet protocols claim that ‘healthy’ foods like whole grains, beans and legumes, and nightshade vegetables, even some citrus fruits, are “inflammatory” or “bad” for you. Usually, such diet protocols would also advocate that you “need” to get your nutrients from grass-fed animal products and wild-caught fish.
While I agree that if you have a condition to improve or reverse, then simply adopting a healthier diet isn’t enough. But that doesn’t mean that what’s healthy for others isn’t considered healthy for you.
The biochemical processes of various diseases have so much in common that the same good nutrition will generate health and prevent (sometimes even reverse) diseases across the board.
Whole food plant based diet will not promote one disease while it stops another. It will never be “bad” for you.
The theory that what’s healthy for the general population (whole grains, beans, legumes) is unhealthy for you if you have Alopecia or autoimmunity is very much flawed.
Adopting a diet high in animal products as an attempt to improve Alopecia and autoimmunity does not promote health across the board.
Animal products are associated with many types of inflammatory diseases that are also the leading causes of death worldwide.
Therefore, this type of diet it not one that I adopt or promote.
While working to improve or stop Alopecia, we should not be inadvertently promoting other diseases.
