A news report from The Journal tells the story of Webster University student Charissa Martin who changed her diet to fight the sleep disorder narcolepsy.
Martin’s research led her to the conclusion that changing the factors affecting one’s gene expression can send diseases into remission. The more research she did, the more foods she eliminated and brought in.
Martin now eats foods that are not inflammatory. She avoids grains and eats fresh vegetables, with fruit on occasion. She eats fish and certain meats that are easily digestible. Today, she only takes one medication.
