Dietary Cure for Hidradenitis Suppurativa

August 26, 2019

[Music] this landmark study suggested that exposure to dietary geese like baker’s yeast brewery’s nutritional ease may worsen the course of crohn’s disease an autoimmune inflammatory bowel disease the reason they even thought to do this study was because Crohn’s patients tended to have elevated levels of antibodies to yeast but that’s not the only out of immune disease with increased yeast antibodies the same has been found in lupus patients and rheumatoid arthritis another joint disease called ankylosing spondylitis autoimmune liver disease and autoimmune thyroid disease so might avoiding yeast help those conditions too they haven’t been put to the test but he’d rat night is supper Teva has what is that had retinitis supper Teva can be pretty gruesome disease starts out with just like pimples though typically along parts of the body where there are folds armpits groin buttocks under the breasts then painful nodules form which turn into abscesses and drain a thick foul-smelling pus and then it gets even worse forming these active tunnels of pus inside your body and it’s not that rare an estimated prevalence of like 1 to 4 percent that’s like 1 in 50 and clothes typically cover it up so it remains hidden but you can often smell the pus oozing out of people there are all sorts of surgical options in chemotherapy but why did they even think to try diet for the condition I mean you can see Crohn’s disease is a disease of intestinal inflammation how food you react to could make things worse but why a disease of armpit inflammation because there seems to be a link between hidradenitis suppurativa and crohn’s disease having one may make you 5 times more likely to have the other so there may be an immuno pathogenic link between the two they may share similar abnormal immune responses so if cutting yeast out of Crohn’s patients diets help them then maybe cutting out yeast might help with HS a dozen patients with hid rat and nine to separate Eva put on a diet that eliminated foods with yeast like bread and beer and they all got better 12 out of 12 immediate stabilization of their clinical symptoms and the skin lesions regressed reversed went away within a year on the diet okay but how do we know it was the yeast by cutting out a food like pizza you also may be cutting out a lot of dairy and that’s the one other thing that appears to help a dairy-free diet led to improvement in like 5 out of 6 patients I see these tunnels of puffs are caused by the rupture of the same kind of sebaceous glands that can cause regular acne but in hidradenitis suppurativa they explode and dairy products contain 3 things that drive the process of clogging up your pores and contributing to the leakage rupture and ultimate explosion first there’s the casein which elevates igf-1 got it probably a dozen of videos on that then there’s the way in lactose and third the hormones in the milk itself six hormones produced by the cow or placenta and mammary glands to end up in the milk so why not try cutting out dairy and see if things improve there’s a whole series of nasty drugs you can try to beat back the inflammation but as soon as you stop them the disease can come roaring back even after extensive surgery the disease comes back in like 25 to 50 percent of cases so we are desperate to research new treatment options but patients aren’t waiting they’re getting together in online communities sharing their trial and error through social media and people reported successes cutting out dairy and refined carbs like white flour and sugar so this dermatologist in New Hampshire was like okay let’s give dairy-free a try and 83 percent of his HS patients he tried it on started to get better and it didn’t even try cutting out the sugar and flour now this wasn’t a clinical trial or anything he just figured why not it’s not easy to do a randomized clinical dietary intervention but that doesn’t stop individual patients from giving things a try I mean you understand why there has to be institutional review boards and stuff when they try out new risky drugs and surgeries but it’s just a matter of trying switching to soy milk or something why do they have to wait as patients search for an effective path to clearing this horrible disease they need support and guidance to follow the most healthful diet available free of dairy and highly processed sugar and flour nothing could be more natural what about the yeast though how do we know it was the yeast and look eight of the twelve patients just went through surgery so maybe that was why they got so much better it’s like when I hear someone who has cancer and goes through the conventional chemo surgery radiation followed by some quack clinic in Mexico and then attributes their cure to though.we grass colonics or whatever they got how do they know it wasn’t the chemo surgery radiation that saved them in this study why do we suspect it was the yeast because not only did every single one of the patients get better every single one showed an immediate recurrence of skin lesions following accidental or voluntary consumption of beer or other foods like bread so not only did the elimination of yeast result in rapid stabilization and complete regression of the lesions within a year but in every single case take a little brewers yeast or something within 24 to 48 hours BAM symptoms are back so that’s why the researchers concluded that a simple exclusion diet could promote the resolution of the skin lesions involved in this disabling and perhaps actually not so rare disease what was the response in the medical community to this remarkable landmark study why was there no mention of informed consent and ethics committee approval letter after letter saying wait a second you you violated the Declaration of Helsinki which is like the Nuremberg code or Geneva Convention to protect against involuntary human experimentation yet where was the institutional review board approved for this yeast exclusion study to which the researchers replied look we just told them to avoid a few foods we gave them the choice look we put you on drugs that can have side effects caused liver problems or war you can try out this diet and the patients preferred the diet not to mention I would add that they were all cured anyway bottom line by avoiding foods like pizza which contains both dairy and yeast sufferers may be able to prevent their armpit from turning into this stage 3 of the disease [Music] you

    First time I have seen Dr. Greger present a false claim. Both Chemo, and Radiation have been proven to cause secondary cancers. Both only kill the sister cells, not the cancer stem cells. That is not a cure for cancer. Second my own sister went through breast cancer with the standard treatment only to have it return 11 years later. She also suffered secondary cancer that require her to have a hysterectomy due to uterine cancer caused by the Chemo she was subjected to. The second time she developed breast cancer in the same place she went the whole foods plant based vegan diet, and what Dr. Greger called a Quack treatment. She has done great on this treatment. It has been 5 years now, and there is no sign of the tumor, or the cancer returning. She suffered no negative side effects . She took the most natural path for a cure. Her own immune system. A whole foods plant based diet, and intravenous high dose vitamin C. Side note: My sister had just seen one of her best friends who also developed breast cancer go through 3 years of standard Chemo, and radiation treatments just before my sister's second diagnosis. Her friend suffered terribly for those three years. She lost her hair, ended up with Chemo brain, and was in terrible pain. In the end the cancer metastasized, and killed her in a most painful way. The medical establishment boasted that they had given her three more years. My sisters choice has given her way beyond 3 years, and she is healthy happy, and full of energy, and life. I think she chose the correct Quack.

  • Reply Linda H. September 6, 2017 at 3:00 pm

    I have lived with this chronic condition since puberty. Imagine having large open, weeping painful wounds under both armpits & on both sides of your groin – your body becomes a prison.  I can attest that diet changes & aggressive surgeries have helped to put me in remission. The nodules that form under the skin make multiple tunnels/tracks that lead to more abscesses & open wounds. Dairy & yeast were indeed the biggest agitators of the disease. HS is a beast to fight when it passes the early stages-  I'm talking skin graphs, large open wounds in severely painful/intimate areas, brutal medications that cause life threatening long term side effects – not to mention the mental anguish of it all. Thanks for spreading the message.

    This is why I'm kind of skeptical of EBM. It's intended to protect from incompetents and rogue scientists (and not to mention lawsuits), but it also calls for an abandonment of just about every form of knowledge except the absolute highest, even if the benefits of doing otherwise utterly outweigh the risks.

  • Reply brutalbeetle September 6, 2017 at 9:28 pm

    I have crohn's and HS. Diet cleared my HS up, it "manages" my crohn's but it's almost remissive at best. My lesions took under a month to go away but I was on an extreme white rice and meat diet. However, since going back on dairy I haven't had a reoccurence. I consume a lot of dairy too.
    I've been wheat and yeast free for years and still had recurrences during my wheat-free and yeast free diet phase.
    I attribute it to vitamin deficiencies, refined carbs, and food additives more than anything.

    Gosh darnit…now if I can only get my GI to figure out if I have Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis. I'm currently at "indeterminent" because I show the pattern of UC but responded well to Crohn's specific treatments. I've already gone plant based but still enjoy the odd beer and bread. It's very difficult to figure out what does/doesn't have yeast in it. Certain online resources recommend avoiding things like nuts and fruit which I think is ridiculous. What about distilled alcohol like vodka and rum?

    Dairy isn't worth it! I have a true dairy allergy. A few years ago when I was "cheating" over the holidays with cheese, I broke out horribly with cystic acne in the normal HS sites, places I've never had pimples before. It thoroughly terrified me. On a dairy free diet, I don't have the acne that plagued me since the 4th grade–no "razor burn"–no HS area breakouts–no puffy under eyes–no stuffed up nose–no seasonal allergies–no "random" exhaustion–I could go on & on. I'll stick to my homemade, plant-based dairy replacements, thank you very much ?

    I am actually an Hidradenitis suppurativa sufferer since 1996. With nearly 40 "light" surgeries (called incisions) and 5 severe surgeries, like cutting out very large areas of my skin, up to 18 x 6 Inches. Completely cutting dairy out of my diet let me stay almost symptom free over the course of the past 5 years. And I try to spreading the word almost every day. But it seems, milk and cheese is like a drug. Even if sufferers can almost be cured, they hold on to it like heroin. Can't understand. But, anyway, thank you very much for this Video.

    I have hypothyroidism and had IBS for years. I did my own research and thought I would try looking more into my diet. I completely cut out dairy and all grains. I lost 30 pounds just from doing this and no longer have to take thyroid meds or have any issues with IBS. Also unexpectedly was able to get off my cholesterol meds and now my blood work is normal, especially my triglycerides. I don't know if it was the yeast or gluten or both that I had issues with but it changed my life. I didn't have to cut out sugar tho because I don't really use much of it. I like water and plain drinks like black coffee and such, although I do have a soda on rare occasions. I could see how sugar might be a problem for people who are addicted to it. Your brain gets addicted to it like a drug from what I've read so that would need to be cut out too I think. Dairy is really disgusting to think about when you find out it literally can have pus in it to begin with. That thought made it easy for me to get off it.

I always have been fermenting myself (wild fermentation, not with starters) and I'm afraid I shouldn't be eating them, right? has anyone experience with these foods as well? and I was wondering if anyone has like a resource website or something, with foods-to-avoid-lists and more information, maybe a forum and stuff?

    Went on a 4-month diet removing Yeast, Dairy, and Gluten, along with other things such as mushrooms and rosemary.
    At first, it helped. But then I had a flare-up after a long plane trip that caused a brand new outburst.

    I really hope that a diet can help people, but time and time again it seems like reducing stress is the number 1 way for it to settle down. Which gets harder and harder to do as it becomes more and more painful. I'm just waiting for a real cure.

    I was fine with no flareups last 4
    months and last week I’d pizza and 2 days later subway and next day I had flare up . It’s wise to skip these foods containing yeast
