Testimonial: Myasthenia Gravis – Thank You For Saving My Life

Testimonial written by: Kristina
I have myasthenia gravis, it’s a rare autoimmune disease that wreaks havoc on the neuromuscular system. It is incurable and can be fatal. I was diagnosed in October 2009. In my fight against the disease, I tried everything known to modern medicine to treat my symptoms. I had my thymus removed. I tried IVIG twice. I tried plasmapheresis. I spent four years on immunosuppressants that slowly destroyed my kidneys until I went into acute kidney failure. It was when I went into failure and faced giving up the medication that had kept my symptoms under control that I came across your book. I read it. It made sense. I decided to try Paleo. Within 6 weeks of starting paleo, I was off my meds and my symptoms were more under control then when I was on it. I haven’t touched any MG meds since. I stay Paleo and as long as I do, I feel great. Normal. Healthy. Your book saved my life. It gave me my life back. And I just wanted to say thank you.

    Hi Kristina! I also have myasthenia gravis and I have been using the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol to keep it in remission. I also take no medications. It’s so great to hear of other MG success stories!

    Hi kristina,
    I am very happy for you!

    I’m also suffering from MG and trying to keep Paleo Diet for the last 4 years, but unfortunately my MG didn’t disappear… And some of my symptoms got even worst from time to time…

    What kind of Myasthenia do you have? Which are the muscles that were mostly affected and how severe it was? Could you walk before starting Paleo? Could you raise your hands? how about breathing? Did any of these symptoms got better?
    I will also be happy to read more about what you eat and more about what you DO NOT eat, because Paleo can have a very wide interpretation when it comes to food…

    So interesting and good to read. I also have MG and was diagnosed in my early 20’s. I now have four small kids and take no meds. I have learned to deal with the daily symptoms of MG so this was super encouraging to read. Thank you!

    Hi Ladies, I also have MG and just started this diet. I currently take prednisone, Imuran and Mestinon. I am hoping to eventually stop with all these pills. I just want to feel good…

    Wish me luck.

    Hi Ladies,

    It is great to hear of your success with Paleo. I am transistioning into Paleo now….and have MG as well. Same story, I have been on Prednisone since 2007, as well as tacrolimus and periodic IVIG. In this past week I am starting to feel alot better and I havent even got to 100% Paleo. I have cut out all snack foods and am eating alot more fruits, veggies and nuts. I too dream of being medication free and living the “normal life”.
