Hi Erika and Rhonda,
I find it interesting that you both have anemia. http://www.thisisms.com/ftopic-8640-255.html
I try to eat quinoa every morning for breakfast and include it in my lunch & dinner. It’s a SUPER food. If you aren’t familiar with it, here’s a link to it’s nutritional analysis.

I had been following the Swank Diet myself since diagnosed in 1992 and attribute that to my very slow MS symptoms progression. But since 2008 I’ve been following the “Healing MS, Diet, Detox & Nutritional Makeover for Total Recovery” by Ann Boroch and I’m feeling soooooooo much better. I keep Ann appraised of the advances in CCSVI as she has shown an interest in it and she even wrote about it in her December 2009 Newsletter and attached a link to the CTV special on CCSVI. Way to go Ann!! Here’s contact info. http://www.annboroch.com
phone (818) 763-8282 She is very accessible and knowledgeable about MS & nutrition.
Then last year just for fun, lol, I added in “The Sugar Addict’s Total Recovery Program” by Kathleen DeMaisons and again, I’m even better! A lot of issues have cleared up and I’ve also dropped 50 pounds as my only “side effect”!! I’d say that’s not so bad. Well, that and sobriety, as alcohol = sugar
Had to say goodby to nightly cocktail hour.
When I was looking up the web site for the Quinoa analysis I pulled up this web site as well and found it interesting. I haven’t read it all, but a little ways down on the blog under Day 18 of Detox, she speaks about Quinoa and how she likes to prepare and eat it. And a little further down under the Day 17 of Detox, she speaks about her low Ferrin levels and how she addresses that through diet. It’s an interesting read and even though I’m not very far into it yet, I soon will be. She thinks like I do about the food choices we make every day. Garbage in, Garbage out!
Maybe you’ll find some of this info helpful.
