MS and diet
Posted by: Carol
Date: December 20, 2001 3:45 PM

I was recently diagnosed with MS and have been playing around with my diet quite a bit. My homopatheic doc has me on the blood type diet, and conventional doc thinks I should concentrate on the MS diet. I understand what a carbohydrate is chemically, however I am confused as to what exactly is good and bad physically...(cheese, pasta?) I also understand protein and fats.

I don't know any diet which specifically benefits MS, although I am aware of docs who recommend a low fat diet. Of course you want to be as healthy as possible and to that purpose avoidance of simple (sweets) and refined (made from flour) carbs is recommended to anyone as well as a minimum dependence on cooked and animal based foods and a leaning toward plant based and raw foods, as much organically prepared as possible. I suggest you look into the relationship between symptoms of MS and heavy metal toxicity, most common of which is mercury toxicity derived from dental amalgams. Also, correction of any level of human growth hormone levels which is found to be less than that enjoyed by the average 25 year old person seems to benefit a variety of neurological disorders such as MS, ALS as well as LMN (lower motor neuron) disease. This is a clinical observation, and is not mainstream advice. Naturally, I am not trying to diagnose or treat you, but am making some general comments for purposes of education.
