Yes there is!: I have met and spoken with dr. Wahls -- and she's extremely well-informed as well as being an inspiring soul. Her story and improvement are no joke. Her new book describing her work with ms (the wahls protocol) is coming out in 2014. The diet is largely paleo, and her protocol includes progressive exercise and neuromuscular stimulation. Functional medicine approach. http://www.terrywahls.com/.

Repetitive question: Dr Wahl's followed a Paleo diet, and use of supplements and did well. Others have focused on diet and also done well, and dietary measures do help. But would use low fat, low salt diet, with Vitamin D supplements, and aerobic exercise with an MS MEDICATION to have maximal safety.

Wahls medicine study: This is a link to her study of 10 patients who showed improvement. That is somewhat better evidence than her own case. Hopefully this works for many more! http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24476345
