My name is Yael Goodman. I have three Auto-immune Diseases. I have Hashimoto’s Under-active Thyroid, Celiac Disease and Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
I have been sick and misdiagnosed for over 25 years! I finally found the cause of my constant pain, anemia, overwhelming fatigue, fibromyalgia, digestive problems, migraines and overall ill health.
My process started being by only gluten free, the conventional way to treat Celiac Disease.
I had been eating gluten free for 6 years before my MS was diagnosed and I realised just being gluten free wasn’t enough! I need to be grain free, dairy free, legume free and include lots of nutritionally beneficial foods to truly get well. So ultimately, I have began following an Auto-Immune Protocol (AIP) Paleo diet. That is where the changes started to happen for me! I have never been so well in my entire life! I hope to educate and show other people what the new lifestyle is all about and share my story.
I am not a doctor. If you want medical advice and support, I suggest you have a look at the sites of Dr Sarah Ballantyne and Dr Terry Wahl, both of whose dietary and lifestyle advice I follow. Their books are also available : The Paleo Approach and The Wahl’s Protocol , both of which I highly recommend.
As I have gone on this personal journey of discovery about health and eating, I hope I can share some of the things I have discovered along the way.
I am by training a Therapeutic Reflexologist, Reiki master and nutritional counsellor. I have been living in Cape Town for 3 wonderful years, but have moved back to Johannesburg now and I am now concentrating on this blog and writing the long awaited for book about my healing journey.
I hope you will join me….
