    Hello,
    I was diagnosed with MG in the fall of 2015. I began healthy eating and juicing weeks before they started me on meds, and I had a 20% reduction in symptoms, my biggest symptom was not being able to talk… Eventually the mesitinon and now prednisone have help quite a bit, but I have concerns about longer term med usage. Now they want to switch me on to Azathioprone, which also concerns me because it is a carcinogen and has been used as a form of chemo. I ‘m please to find your site. Has anyone have complete remission from healthy eating or other natural remedies?
    Regards,
    Matt

    How is the diet going these days? I’m on a whole-plant based diet (vegan, no oil, only whole-plant) and reversed my heart disease. Now I’ll looking to find out how myasthenia Gravis people do on such diets given my wife has MG. Any updates? I’m thinking about trying to convince her to change her diet.

    Greetings! I was suprised to read that you eat spinach altho you have myasthenia gravis. I was told that chocolate AND spinach contained a lot of magnesium and were to be avoided. Please let me in and tell me if this is really true cz I just luuurv spinach. Thanks. Frankie

      I absolutely love spinach as well. Spinach and chocolate both contain a fair amount of magnesium but I personally eat spinach (raw and cooked) and chocolate often. I often crave spinach, and as they say, If you crave it your body may be needing it in one way or another. I’m not sure who gave you that information – to avoid chocolate and spinach – but I would consider getting another professional opinion as to if you really need to avoid them all together.

      If you do start to eat either of the two, I would personally start with a small amount first (possibly in a smoothie) and just see how your body responds. Everyone is different but for me, spinach and chocolate do not seem to be a problem and if anything, has done loads of good things for my body. I hope this helps!

    Thank you for the information. I have been suspecting that MG is a nutrient deficiency of some kind. I can tell a huge difference in symptoms with the different things I eat and yes I do best with whole foods and green stuff. I find it encouraging that all the smoothies contain spinach. The one food that gave me strength when I was really weak was spinach. I thank God I am miles ahead of where I was just last year and continue to improve. Breakfast seems to be my weak link and I believe the smoothies will be the answer. Thank you again for taking the time to put this together.
