TPS7 Deleted Session November 28, 1983 3/26 (12%) diet nightshade recovery steve knuckle

[... 23 paragraphs ...]

(Another development cropped up just before supper time, and even brought tears to Jane. Out of the mail I’d picked a letter from a sincere individual who’d tried to visit us this summer. I hadn’t been home and he’d left a card on the porch floor; eventually I’d answered it. His rather long letter dealt with Dr. Childers’ nightshade diet for arthritis; the writer claimed he had a close friend who had recovered completely from rheumatoid arthritis that had plagued him since childhood, by following this diet—no potatoes, paprika [peppers], tomatoes, and a few other common foods of the nightshade family.

(I told Jane I wouldn’t mind having Seth comment tomorrow. The idea of a “cure” upset me, if it was available and we weren’t trying it. But then, Seth said Jane doesn’t have arthritis—so that’s what we’ve been going by. I wanted to know what part beliefs played in such diets, that worked, and I wanted to know about the wide variance in human responses. In short, I wanted something from Seth about whether it was worth it, or even necessary, that Jane try this diet—which, after all, would be the latest in the series of schemes I’ve come across in efforts to help her. [The last one was the anti-amoebic medication regime.] And what does it all mean, I asked, if she’s getting better now without any special diet or foods?

(I could see that the whole question had touched an unexpected nerve in Jane, so we’d better get something on the question; maybe we can lay it to rest for good. I’ve been feeling good, enthusiastic, about what we’ve been doing, and it seems to be getting results. I’d say that Seth’s session today, Sweetheart, shows that we’re on the right track. That there’s no need for us to shove a bunch of beliefs upon a diet. Let’s hear it, Seth!)
