Nutso. So much for that plan. I knew of two people that had their CFS drop to non-existent or manageable levels after incorporating huge amounts of vegetables in their diet. Here I was stuck with rip my chest out heartburn.
Now, two years later, I find this little gem:
"Is Broccoli Good For You?"
Turns out that a chemical in cruciferous vegetables:
So maybe eating broccoli isn't such a good idea for me. Maybe my heartburn is trying to tell me something. One of the reasons that I trusted Dr. Wahls is that she has done extensive research on food, diet and MS. This is how she developed her diet plan. Makes me wonder how she decided that we need such a huge amount of cruciferous vegetables in our diet to make us healthy. This article is the complete antithesis of her work.
In my case it doesn't really matter because right now I can't eat much of any of the cruciferous veg. Even sauerkraut is giving me heartburn two hours later. Dang. I am so not happy about this.
