My Nourishing Three Day Meal Plan For Living With Lupus, Fibromyalgia and Multiple Autoimmune Conditions


Living with lupus, fibromyalgia, IBS and other overlapping autoimmune diseases means that every day is a struggle.  My goal, however, is to try to become my best self despite my illnesses. To achieve this goal, one of the most important things I have decided to do is to live a healthier lifestyle. There is no single diet uniquely proven to help lupus (and other autoimmune illness) patients, but a healthy and balanced diet is often recommended.  I agree with this approach and have noticed positive changes in my body and mind.


I was diagnosed with “mild” lupus in 2010. Shortly thereafter, with the birth of my son, my lupus flared and I was hospitalized multiple times in 2011.  The disease itself– and the meds that were meant to suppress it– left me ill, bedridden, wheelchair-bound and fighting for my life for about a year.  What followed was a long road to recovery.


The residual health effects of this “trauma” was long-lasting, and I am still recovering from it. Over the years, I collected additional illnesses (fibromyalgia, Raynauds, IBS, FGID) and fought thyroid cancer, which left me with hypothyroidism. To strengthen myself at the core, both to recover and to prevent a recurrence of my disease, I have adopted a healthier lifestyle and a nourishing, healing diet. This means I move and exercise as much as I can.  It also means I eat small, balanced meals of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean meats.


My general approach to food is to eat frequently, in moderation and mostly from plant sources, but to also incorporate fish and lean meats. The most important thing is to listen to your body and what it’s telling you in response to the food you eat.  Mindful eating is key. I hope this sample three-day menu will inspire you to find your own healthy and balanced meals!

  1. great uziku

    GREETINGS ………to every body , i am MORRISON BELL from LONDON(UK). I was once diagnosed with LUPUS in September 2014. I back than i was having skin rashes all over my body, this was very unbearable to me , then life was without meaning to me due to my health status , i tried my possible best to get cured but all seems in vain, So all through those period of my life, i was unhappy.
    I still kept doing research on possible cure for LUPUS since 2014 though i knew science has no cure for it yet, few years ago while i was on search in the Internet i came across different testimonies on how this great man called DR.ODIGIE has been saving souls with his herbal medicine , people recommended that he has been using his medicine to cure LUPUS and different disease permanently and they advice that anyone who haven’t get in contact with him should contact him now for help.
    So After reading several testimony from different people concerning DR.ODIGIE medicine for curing LUPUS , i said to myself that God could use any means to heal his servant , So without any doubt, i contacted him about my LUPUS Diagnosis treatment ,i explained my problems to him, without wasting time, he told me that he is going to help me , So he prepared a herbal medicine for me which he sent to me and he told me to use it according to the instruction that i will see on it, so i abide to him, before i know it, i was beginning to feel some changes in my body , the skin rashes i had on my body was gone and so i went for medical check up and to my greatest surprise, i was healed and cured from the disease i tut then can never be cured from my LUPUS but DR.ODIGIE gave me reasons to live , I am so very happy now as i am sharing my testimony and i want to use this medium opportunity to tell anyone who is having this sickness LUPUS or any kind of disease like HERPES, HEPATITIS B ,DERMATOMYOSITIS .HIV AIDS, Cancer, syphilis, gall stone and lot’s more should quickly contact DR ODIGIE on his email at:(drodigiesolutiontemple at rewrite the email address in a right form before contacting him . His Herbal medicine is one of a kind and i believe he can also cure you too just as he has cured me..THANKS
