I'm not familiar with Dr Embry's suggested diet so I cannot comment on any recommendations he might have made with regards grape seeds extract.
I do follow Dr Sears anti-inflammatory diet and adapt it to eat the superfoods that Dr Terry Wahls suggests. I find both diets quite useful and both recommend intake of antioxidants and resveratrol which can be found in grapes.
Dr Wahls is doing a follow-up study on the impact of her diet on MS, you might be interested in checking details in her website:
I'm not too keen on taking supplements, I prefer to eat fresh products and grapes are certainly included in my diet. However, I do take fish oils as recommended by both Dr Sears and Dr Wahls.
IMHO, there is no enough research on the effect of certain recommended supplements on our health, and let alone for some specific diseases. So at the end of the day it is a personal decision whether one listens to the suggestion of a doctor/person/friend and embarks into taking fish oils, ginko, reserveratrol or grape seeds among many other supplements out there.
Specifically for grape seeds, there are a few published articles. Here are some links.

scorpion wrote:Hey Tmrox. Dr. Embry has developed a diet that he claims slows down(or maybe even stops) the MS diesase process. You can find the list of his foods on Direct-MS with lots of testimonials stating how the diet has "stopped MS in its tracks" and in some cases even improved symptoms. Dr. Embry stated he values empirical evidence and I was curious how he determined "empirically" that his diet was an effective therapy against MS. The 90% statement also baffled me. As for Freedman I wish he would change his style of confronation because as with Dr. Embry he sounds like a little child screaming "nanananana!" Thanks for responding to my post with some good solid points.
