About Jacqueline Lagacé
Jacqueline Lagacé, Ph.D., is the author of the best-seller The End of Pain, aimed at helping those suffering from chronic inflammation overcome pain through diet.
For years, she suffered from debilitating chronic arthritis pain in her hands, spine, and knees. Conventional medicine failed to provide any relief, and Lagacé, a medical researcher, began searching for alternatives. That search brought her to the work of Dr. Jean Seignalet, an expert in nutrition therapy, who used targeted nutrition to treat patients suffering from chronic inflammatory diseases. His approach was called the hypotoxic diet, and he achieved an 80 percent success rate with it. By following his dietary regime, Lagacé experienced alleviation of the pain in her hands within ten days and regained the use of her hands in 16 months. Her severe back and knee pain were also greatly reduced.
The main principles of this diet are:
- exclusion of animal milks and derivatives;
- exclusion of all "modern" grains, such as all those containing gluten (wheat, rye, barley, oats, kamut and spelt), and corn ;
- exclusion of animal protein cooked at a temperature above 110° C;
The diet has proven empirically beneficial against several autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, multiple sclerosis, etc.), diseases related to "cell clogging" (such as acne, arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine, etc.) and others (colitis, hives, psoriasis, etc.). Scientific research is underway, aiming at providing evidence-based results that would support the cause and effect relationship anticipated between this diet and the positive outcomes that have been so far observed empirically.
