Number of MCTD patients treated with the Seignalet diet over a period of 20 years : 3
“It is a curious and depressing truth, demonstrated time and again in medical history that the desire of the average physician to administer powerful and active drugs is only equalled by the desire of the average patient to have powerful and active drugs administered to him.” Barbara Griggs: “Green Pharmacy” (A history of medicines and drugs through the ages)
Newly diagnosed with MCTD or had it some time and looking for an alternative to drugs?
Drugs have nasty side effects. Although they may offer some relief in the short run, in the long run they will further damage your health and make your condition worse! There is a PROVEN alternative. It’s the Seignalet diet. Here is what you will find on this page and in the blog posts and vlogs (see top links):
1. My own delicious and simple recipes so you can follow the Seignalet diet faithfully without being tempted to “fall off the wagon”. Most of the recipes are healthy and delicious comfort food and can be made in minutes. A health nut’s alternative to cheese on toast!
2.Other things I have personally researched & found in medical journals that might also help to reverse MCTD by acting in synergy with the diet. Things like vitamin deficiencies and particularly vitamin d deficiency which is implicated in all diseases and very strongly in some diseases like Multiple Sclerosis. (A doctor in Brazil has even put patients with MS into remission using vitamin d supplementation alone.) Vitamin A deficiency is also strongly implicated in all diseases and very strongly implicated in Acne for example. See my 4 “Healthiest Breakfast Ever” vlogs here on how to get optimum vitamin A every day without the toxicity associated with supplements and vitamin A drug analogs. Did you know that vitamin d receptors in cells are “retinoids”? In other words made from vitamin a. Vitamin d deficiency is implicated in every chronic disease. Watch my videos to see how to get optimum vitamin a safely from vegetable sources.
3.Detox and Natural Pain Relief. It can sometime take a while for the diet to work. Diseases like arthritis are painful. To keep the pain manageable until remission is achieved with the diet, click Natural Pain Relief So can MCTD be “cured” with the diet? Dr. Seignalet found common genetic factors in most of the diseases he treated. So the disease cannot be cured. But it CAN be put into remission with the diet according to Seignalet. As Dr. Jean himself said, a full remission (as long as you stay on the diet) is really as good as a cure isn’t it? Even if you don’t obtain 100% remission it is usually greatly improved. With my own supercharged version of the Seignalet diet I think it is possible to get 100% remission every time in six weeks or less. Go here But make sure you read the home page to understand how the diet works, click on this top link here and watch my video about Dr. Seignalet’s book here:
This is not an “official” site for Dr. Seignalet’s diet. Although I have friendly relations with the Seignalet family, having translated Anne and Dominique Seignalet’s guide to their father’s book, Dr. Seignalet died in 2002 and this site, my blogs and vlogs are my own interpretation of his book and sometimes they are more “Chris Parkinson” than “Dr. Jean Seignalet”. My 3 “Healthiest Breakfast Ever” vlogs for example are not to be found in his book but HBE is inspired by his book. I just hope that he would approve. Unfortunately I can’t ask him but he is always in my thoughts, even though I never met him.
Should you seek your doctor’s permission to follow the diet?
My own, unqualified opinion is that no, you don’t have to ask their permission. But let your doctor know that you are following the diet so he or she can help you taper off your medication. On the subject of drugs, Dr. Seignalet said that he asked his patients if they were getting any relief with them and if not he stopped them. Dr. Seignalet was a professor of medicine and he never renounced classic medicine. If his patients did not get 100% remissions he allowed them to take drugs but hopefully in much reduced quantity.
Be aware that using just the diet alone as it starts to work you may experience some detox symptoms. Orthodox medicine does not admit that “detox” is an actual phenomenon and some pharma propagandists ridicule the notion. Your doctor therefore may misinterpret detoxification symptoms as intoxification caused by a microbe, a parasite, food poisoning or even nutritional deficiencies. What is “detox”? As the diet starts to work your body will heal itself and the macromolecules that had penetrated your gut, entered your blood stream and ended up in your tissues will now be expelled from the cells by a process called autophagy and back into your blood stream. Sometimes this is more than the liver and kidneys can process and eliminate and you may get a flare of your symptoms or nausea, headaches, a loose bowel etc. These bouts of detox symptoms often come in waves with each one being less unpleasant than the last until they completely subside and you are in remission. Dr. Seignalet recommended to eat plenty of bile stimulating foods like endives or chicory (he recommended chicory instead of tea or coffee at breakfast) to palliate detox symptoms. Bile floods the liver, removes the toxins and dumps them into your intestines and you will get rid of them when you poop.
You might be able to avoid detox symptoms altogether and be sure of getting 100% remission using my supercharged version of the Seignalet diet here where I show you how to use my HBE juice (see my 3 HBE vlogs) with bile stimulating black radish and to learn how to use frequent low dose vitamin c to to speed recovery and detox. Don’t be tempted to try short cutting by not following the diet as well though and to stay safe, make sure you follow all my instructions. Don’t leave anything out!
Vitamin deficiencies associated with MCTD
(Note: See my blogs and vlogs on Dr. Seignalet’s dietary recommendations)
I recommend doing this to research articles in medical journals on vitamin deficiencies associated with MCTD: do a google search using these terms:
MCTD + vitamin d deficiency + pubmed (See my blog articles and vlogs about vitamin d from tanning. You can buy my home tanning bed)
MCTD + vitamin a deficiency + pubmed
MCTD + vitamin e deficiency + pubmed
MCTD + the b vitamins deficiency + pubmed
MCTD + vitamin folic acid deficiency + pubmed
MCTD + vitamin b12 deficiency + pubmed
MCTD + zinc deficiency + magnesium deficiency + other mineral deficiencies
A final message from Chris. This site so far has been funded by my day job. In the future I hope it will be funded by sales of my compact tanning bed. I truly believe that short daily sessions with it will do wonders for your health and be a great adjunct to the Seignalet diet. I hope that sales from it will let me break free from my day job and devote myself full time to developing this website.
You will notice that all the disease pages currently follow the same format. That is because the information is relevant to all the diseases treated by Seignalet. The information has been inserted using a script. I make no apologies for that. It’s the best I can do at the moment. When I have time I will update each page with more individualized content & links to pages with more information on each specific disease so that this page will become a landing page for MCTD New pages on Seignalet’s explanation of the etiology (origin) of MCTD using Seignalet’s book as the reference; a comparison with the official version; a look at drugs for MCTD and their side effects; folk medicine and herbal remedies for MCTD; specific foods that can help with the disease (for example, radish varieties are very good for diabetes 2); etc. etc. etc. Eventually this page on MCTD will become a landing page with links to several other pages on MCTD The first disease to get this treatment will be Acne. Register above so that you will be notified of updates.
Finally, if you would like to contribute to my living costs so that I can devote more time to the site please go here.
I would love to see your comments about this page and the site in general below. Or go to the forum forum to discuss your own medical history and let us know how you are doing on the diet or simply email me to let me know how you are getting on: firstname.lastname@example.org I would live to hear from you. I can’t give more advice than what is on this forum though because I’m not a doctor but if you want me to do research on your condition using Dr. Seignalet’s book and other sources (I have over 200 books on medicine, health and nutrition) click on the “Support Chris” button underneath to go through to my subscribestar page and subscribe to “Tier 6.
