Environment and Nature

Over the years of battling RA I noticed that there was a relationship between my living environment and the severity of my disease. If I took time out from the city I noticed a shift in my body for the better.

My wife and I would travel into the Blue Mountains, near Sydney, to reconnect with nature for a few days. This quickly recharged the batteries and calmed the body, mind and spirit.

Have you found a relationship between your pain levels and your living space and/or stress levels? Let me know below.

    Hi Clint, Have just come across your site, very informative and sooo helpful. My question is whether your protocol would help symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis which I have had for 15 years. Would really appreciate your advice. Many thanks. Karen.

    • Hi Karen, most definitely. Whatever you’re doing, wherever you are, stop and watch this video immediately – http://www.drmcdougall.com/health/education/videos/free-electures/diet-and-multiple-sclerosis/

      Comment back once you’ve watched this video and I’ll suggest some things for you.

        Hi Clint, thank you for replying I have watched the video Dr McDougall is so compelling, I have heard of him as well as Dr. George Jelnick an aussie doctor who also follows Dr. Swank’s principles. I have always had as healthy diet, avoiding red meat, however I think sugar has been my downfall but I am trying to remedy this with a fish eating vegan diet!
        Any thoughts are very welcome.

        Thanks Clint.


        • Hi Karen, I think Dr Swanks principles are the way forward and as Dr McDougall points out that even small increases in fat increase disease progression by 3 times. So if you were my loved one, in my family, I would insist you cut that fish out. My program guides people through a step-by-step process and gets them used to all these ‘new’ (yet timeless) life-providing foods and comes with an extensive easy-to-follow recipe book which may be of great value. Let me know if you buy it so I can keep in touch with you via customer service. Thanks 🙂

          Definitely NO FISH !!! Cheers, John

  • Clint, thanks for this post or re-post. So timely. I’m in the process of leaving the highly stressful Silicon Valley, have been here for 36 years. But I feel so different when away to a more natural environment. Was in Mount Shasta California in the fall of 2016, and that is where my compass is pointing.
