When I started I was in constant pain. My low back hurt everyday and pretty much all the time. My whole body was in low grade ache all the time. I was not 100% on plan. The percent that I was on plan really helped my body. My low back pain is pretty much gone, except when I sit wrong at home by my computer or work all day sitting at a desk. Honestly as the program went on, I probably followed it less than in the beginning. Overall, my body ache has lessened and I am grateful for that. I would recommend this program and group to everyone struggling with autoimmune diseases.
