raw diet

I suffer from chronic progressive multiple sclerosis and am very close to being in a whellchair. I have learned much about diet from this web site and am currently on a raw diet. My problem is I have lost a lot of weight, about 20 pounds and I am already under-weight. What I have done is add a whey protein drink to my diet three times a day. I believe I am now getting about 60-70 % of my calories from the whey drink. Is the whey protien considered raw?

Whey is extracted after pasteurization which makes it not-raw, but I think it makes no difference. Although you did not ask, I should mention that many people with MS experience improvement with amalgam removal, testing for mercury and other heavy metals and chelation treatment as indicated by the tests. Be careful in selecting your doctor for this procedure as most are not trained or informed. Also, although I know of no studies, I have seen people with MS
improve with human growth hormone therapy.
