What Diet Soda Cause Ms
Can Celiac Disease mimic MS even after being treated with a strict gluten-free diet? Could my untreated Celiac have caused my brain lesions?
Nothing spectacular,: Historically, the low fat swank diet was studied and seemed to reduce relapses a bit. The pulse counting diet looked at pulse elevation after food, and gradual items were eliminated until to pulse stayed stable with remaining items. Unlikely, it ever worked. So, doesn't hurt to do low fat diet, and add vitamin d-3 5000 units twice daily. Some initial value to vitamin a and maybe b complex. ...Read more
Classical MS diet: Developed years prior to ms dmt's, and is a low fat diet, which pays attention to gluten, and other potential toxins. Two nutritional studies did suggest some reduction of relapses in many. Although out of favor these days, many of my patients follow anyway, and most of these also use a low salt approach also. The idea is to blunt inflammation, and there is some evidence to confirm. ...Read more
Is the Swank diet really beneficial to MS long term? Getting varying opinions from specialist and dr.
Current concepts: The Swank diet was useful years ago, prior to the advent of disease modifying therapies, but is excessively complex and not very user friendly. I no longer recommend this approach, as an easier path is just to follow a low fat, low salt diet, and take a potent medication, such as Gilenya, Tysabri, or Lemtrada. Vitamin D supplements are important also. ...Read more
Possibly very, many: Dr. Swank studied 144 patients, half of whom followed his diet for 34 years, 95% of which survived ; were still active 34 years later; in the group that didn't diet 58 of 72 were dead by 34 years, 45 from ms-related causes.To see critiques ; speculation on why it's been ignored see http://www.Overcomingmultiplesclerosis.Org/recovery-program/diet/ i'm impressed with his study.

Is there any truth to dr. Terry wahls insight on MS and diet changes and supplimenting with omega and coq10?
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.

Functional medicine approach. http://www.terrywahls.com/. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Diagnosed with MS 5 years ago and on my 5th treatment. I normally feel pretty good, just never 100%. Can aspertame or my diet making it worse?
Consider this: Aspertame is considered benign and safe by many, but does metabolize to carbon monoxide and other toxins, so, might be best to avoid. Some pts are sensitive to gluten and best to stay away from that also. A low fat, low salt diet seems useful, and vitamin D-3 supplements can assist. Propose you discuss all of this with your neurologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
