Here, we are upgrading our lifestyle and getting back to health again.This site is here to share tips, research, personal experiences and information that will help people all over the world diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis and other autoimmune disorders and chronic illnesses learn how to beat symptoms, feel great and really enjoy life again.

Being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder at 17, I personally refused to feel like there was a physical ‘road block’ in front of my everyday life, so I did something about it. With over 12 years of personal experience, research, persistance and self-care, I started to finally understand which things I could do to upgrade the health of my body so I could ultimately be living healthier and fully enjoy life again.  I aim to share and encourage you on your own health journey because with everything I have personally experienced, realized and continuously learn every day, living a healthy and vibrant life is possible.

Lets help one another be strong, fearless and not only be great, but feel great. I know we all want to, and I’m telling you from experience, it is possible. We can do this! You can do this.

    Hey there!

    I have myasthenia and a thymoma b2 and while sometimes I have no symptoms , other times my left eye closes and there’s a lack of strength on my legs. I only recently have this symptoms on the legs probably because my immune system is weak. I’ve been having runny nose, green mucus (from the nose, not from the lungs) and chills for the past three or four weeks. But besides that I feel fine.
    I was diagnosed the thymoma last september and since March I’ve been treating myself with a kind of gerson therapy but decreasing the number of juices and enemas lately. The Gerson Therapy crew told me it could be insuficient to cure me and that I could use it along with other therapies. I try to pay attention to me in a holistic perspective and I know the importance of the balance of a healthy mind with a healthy body so I’ve been working on both. But still I have doubts about the right physical treament which is best for me and if it’s really possible to cure the thymoma naturally. Does someone have sugestions or experiences to be shared that might help?


    I wish the best to all.

    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?

    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!

      But i thought you needed Magnesium to better MG?
      MG has been with me for the past 1 decade now. I have eventually learnt to live with it and only mustered up courage to speak and discuss about it in open forums now after so many years. I have with this purpose in mind started a blog of my own: where i discuss my life with MG and my life beyond it. Not only will you find the usual what is Myasthenia Gravis or what are the symptoms and causes of Myasthenia Gravis but you will also find a slice of life that i share often. Some humour some glamour. Some poetry. Some short stories and yes just started on recipes too. Healthy ones.
      For anyone with MG the diet has to be light. Clearly. No two opinions on that. It has to be smaller meals, regular meals, frequent meals.
      Nuts and dry fruits have to be an integral part.
      This is what I partake more or less most of the time: Begin the day with a raw garlic pod chewed with saliva and warm lemon water with various things on various days: Black pepper powder/cayenne/wheat grass powder/aloe vera powder/cinnamon powder
      This is followed by a heavy duty vegetable juice that surely has beetroot and carrots. Add anything else you like. I add: bottle gourd, cucumber, an orange, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds and 2 tsp of virgin coconut oil.
      Then at the breakfast table its a platter full of fresh fruits plus whatever you have for breakfast-bread, eggs, etc
      Mid morning is a boiled egg or vegetable soup or cucumber and carrot sticks with hummus
      Lunch is normal but begins with a raw garlic pod chewed with saliva, plate of salads with just a lemon and salt dressing
      Evening snack: is the same as the mid morning snack or dry fruits
      Dinner: normal dinner but yes, have two caps full of organic apple cider vinegar and loads of salads.
      I haven’t tried a vegan diet fully but yes left milk almost a year ago.
      I have undergone thymoma surgery though it recurred twice. Also had bad pneumonias twice that i had to be hospitalised. Last year went thru a Myasthenia Crisis and this year a respiratory failure.
      But see I am back in action though with respiratory support during day and night. Using a bi-pap machine and it has helped me tremendously. It helps the lungs to exert less and me tire less.
      Hope this helps making the picture a trifle brighter for all of us.

    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.
