On February 15, Yumi Media responds to a study that demonstrated how people on vegan diets experienced fewer fibromyalgia symptoms, showing how nutritious, meat-free diets bolstered by products from companies like Quorn can improve the symptoms of fibromyalgia and other conditions.

According to Dr. Michael Greger's Care2.com article, a plant-based diet may be the best way to go for people with fibromyalgia.

Dr. Gregor notes that vegetarian diets have successfully alleviated symptoms in various diseases. “Other inflammatory conditions have been successfully treated with semi-vegetarian ‘flexitarian’ diets,” Dr. Greger wrote, citing Crohn's disease as an example. “Cutting down on meat may also help reduce the risk of cataracts, obesity, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes, though there does appear to be a stepwise drop in risk as one’s diet gets more and more centered around plant foods.”

“Both vegetarian and raw vegan diets led to significant improvements in fibromyalgia symptoms, but what about just mostly vegetarian diets or mostly raw vegan diets?” asks Dr. Greger. “How plant-based does one’s diet need to be to effectively treat fibromyalgia?”

Upon reviewing past studies, Dr. Greger found that fibromyalgia patients on a “mostly vegetarian Mediterranean diet” did not get better after two weeks. When the study was [reviewed], the editor noted that [the vegan ‘Hallelujah diet’] had the most impressive results of any recent fibromyalgia study – three times the improvement that the Mayo Clinic was reporting for their fibromyalgia program.” The “Hallelujah diet” is strictly plant-based, requiring a person to consume the freshest, non-processed “plant-based” food.

Yumi Media is grateful for these findings and says, “We’re impressed by these findings and we encourage everyone to eat nutritious meals.” They add, “Companies like Quorn provide healthy meat alternatives that can be substituted into your favorite non-vegetarian recipes, so it’s easy for people to make that transition into a new routine.”
