MS & DIET

Does anyone have any good info on MS and diet. I have heard that food plays a huge role with some people.
I have yet to find out if I have it but in the meantime I notice different symptoms when I eat certain foods, lemon juice for example. What is the ideal diet?
thanks

Re: MS & DIET

There is something called the SWANK diet and there are several books on it. The basic things to avoid are: alcohol, caffeine, refined sugar, high fat, gluten and diary products. When I have tried eliminating these things, I have felt a lot better.

Re: MS & DIET

I have just been diagnosed within the past week and with prior investigating I have come across the listed diet support for MS. I have had symptoms for 6 years, but have never aggressively pursuited it until lately with I developed burning, pains, tingling, etc. MRI's or brain were not even significant. Took a spinal tap to confirm. I knew that it was MS. MD had previously said no by the brain MRI, but everything was fitting together like a puzzle.

I am definitely sticking to the diet. If anything it can only help me.

Hi, I have also suffered for a few years from symptoms and just started procedures to find out if its MS. mri was neg and I am hoping a spinal tap will confirm either way. my doc does not believe it's ms so I am very frustrated. Do you have floaters?
Thanks

When i was first diagnosed in 99 my chiropractor told me to try a diet of completely natural foods meaning not cooked or processed so i switched to veggies and fruits. you have to make sure you eat some protein but believe it or not you don't need meat for that. mixing raw nuts-almonds is also a source of protein and you can add that to your salad. it is a little hard at first but it is well worth it. i also stopped dairy completely. i was completely symptom free for a year and not one cold and just for a bonus my period went away. at first i went thru withdraw but i started enjoying the tastey fruit and raw veggies and by the way raw corn on the cob is awesome. just try it. you'll see. it took about 3 months and just another bonus i lost 25 lbs. how's that for a diet that works. takes some self control but if that's all it costs it was well worth the work. i am now trying to get back on it. advice to anyone who wants to do this-don't let anyone discourage you and just remember- youre doint this to make yourself feel better! Good luck
