Ankylosing Spondylitis Nutrition Suggestions

Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)  has an autoimmune link with Klebsiella bacteria through HLA B27, and has been shown to be reduced with a low starch diet and appropriate drugs. Some progressive MD’s recommend “low dose Naltrexone (LDN)  (3mg) for auto immune disease. I have known about LDN for MS patients for several years.
Improve gut flora with probiotics like  UltraFlora DF (Metagenics). 
High dose Vitamin C (determine the appropriate dose of Vitamin C via bowel tolerance testing).

High dose EPA-DHA in fish oils. I recomend EPA-DHA 720 by Metagenics.  

Kaprex, also made by Metagenics is olive leaf extract & Rosemay that blocks the production of prostaglandin E2s.
Other natural remedies include ginger and tumeric.
