: : : I just discovered a website for a diet that is supposed to halt the progression of MS. Is anyone familiar with this? Does it help?

: : Hi. I'm not sure what website you've seen, but diet changes have absolutely helped me. No caffeine, very low saturated fat, nothing artificial (especially no artificial sweeteners) has helped me stay exacerbation-free for 10 years, I believe. Look into the "Swank" diet. Even if you don't buy it all, hey, you'll look and feel healthier--what can that hurt? Blessings to you for a gorgeous future.

: I have had great success on the Ashton Embry diet, a non-gluten, non-diary non legume diet. In addition to that, I believe that my food allergy intolerances to those foods (and "bad HDL fats" animal and dairy fats as Swank suggests to avoid) may have been caused or influenced by the presence of too many silver dental fillings. (There are many websites on this topic and something for people with MS to consider. However, it is a long, expensive process to eliminate the kind of mercury toxicity that can come about as a result of mercury amalgam in the mouth... if you have it. And I believe I did.)

Do you mean that you had all your silver dental fillings removed? Ouch! I have a lot of fillings and I don't know if I could go through that unless I knew for sure that it would halt the MS. But I will try the diet. It's going to be tough giving up all the foods I ordinarily eat on my usual vegetarian diet though. :)

Thanks for the info.
