I have a friend with fibromyalgia. She's 25 and is on a ton of meds, constantly in pain, was in the ER twice this past month for the pain. She told me she tried gluten free but it didn't help. I suggested to her to to cut out grains, sugar, processed food and possibly dairy and that people have cometely reversed their disease by just doing that, eliminating all symptoms. She flat out ignores me. I've sent her some info, including some threads on here about it but she did t even acknowledge it and I doubt she even looked at it. Shes skinny, and her body composition is sickly looking (skinny-fat) and I don't think she thinks she needs to change her diet because she's not "overweight". And I don't think she wants to give up her digornio frozen pizzas or processed foods. Her 3 year old son has a blood disorder and is lactose intolerant and she's gunna switch him to soymilk. I borderline freaked out and said at least give him almond milk and she brushed me off. So my question is, does anyone know of any books (since she won't read links) about grain/sugar-free diet and fibromyalgia? And/or blood disorders (he has Von willibrand or something like that). I hate seeing her in pain, taking tons of meds that dont even help, and listening to her sick all the time when she won't even listen to changing her/their diet. Her birthday is coming up and I'd like to get her a book on it.
Also anyone else think there should be a paleohacks iPhone app?
