I'm bumping this thread, just saw it and I wanted to add my two cents worth.
When I was first diagnosed, through a second opinion, the neurologist handed me a piece of paper with a list of drugs to choose from. I mentioned diet and that I had heard and read such and such....and although I had a great amount of respect for him, for he took me through a diagnosis which was not easy given my great health at the time, no significant signs of lesions etc (aside from the most stressful living circumstances, gee, if I had only calculated that as part of the health equation like I do now)....anyway, he looked at me and simply nodded 'no, no, no' as if I had just mentioned taking LSD or something. My sister was sitting next to me at the time, and she said to him "If you were in her situation, would you take the drugs?" At which time he said no.
I had already told him I would not take any drugs, so he was not trying to discourage me, but I was grateful for his honesty.
That was in 2002. We left his office and I never saw him or any other neurologist again until winter 2009 when I had the one and only most serious relapse in these last years since the diagnosis and I did do a 5-day IV drip of cortisone, and am glad I did so, for it did halt the attack my body was under.
I am certainly not advising one way or the other on drugs/diet etc, just sharing what I did and my observations.
But it was clear to me that he had no clue about health through diet. Most mainstream medical physicians do not, and they are hardly adverse to handing out drug prescriptions. I do not think they are evil drug pushers, I think they are afraid, as are so many, and so they do what they were trained to do.
Every one of us here on this forum has to decide for ourselves, our lifestyles etc what is best for us.
But counting on a neurologist for diet feedback will hardly get you anywhere in my opinion.
