Anyone reading up on Sjorgren's might want to consider the AIP diet - especially if their symptoms are overwhelming. If you're not ready for that much change, I was surprised not to see (and I could have missed it) the old wives' tale of giving up Nightshades. (Potato, tomato, peppers, eggplant). I was diagnosed with Sjorgrens after I had whooping cough in 2016. I sort of ignored it because the treatments were annoying and the symptoms were manageable. But by November 2018 I realised I was in fact overwhelmed with symptoms and that something had to change. I followed the AIP diet and started taking supplements - probiotics, fish oil - just everything. I got my hair tested and found that I had a chronic shortage of molydenum and started taking supplements. I got as much sugar out of my life that I could. I learned to meditate. I gave up alcohol for six months and then only went back to an occasional glass of wine.
