Salmon, Trout, Mackerel, Herring, Sardines, Pilchards, Kipper, Eel, Whitebate, Tuna (Fresh only), Anchovies, Swordfish, Bloater, Cacha, Carp, Hilsa, Jack fish, Katla, Orange roughy, Pangas, Sprats

a few days before starting the diet i had 2 meals a day that were vegetables, to wean myself into the diet
- my symptoms are mobility and bladder EDSS = 6.5
from day 1 i have noticed a weakening of my legs and foot drop in both legs being more pronounced and heavy,
over the last month this has progressed a bit so a its now a bit more worse than the beginning days.
although, i have seen almost immediate improvements in energy levels, however energy has never really been a problem or ms symptom, im just now not being sleepy in the late evening, and much more wid awke when i wake in the morning, even if its 7am
yet my legs are weaker & dragging more, all day
also my bladder from day one of the diet has been much more frequent, only in the day though- before the diet i would pass urine every 2.5-3 hours now on the diet i pass urine every 90-30 mins.
Nocturnal enuresis was 5 times a week, BUT for the last 2 weeks its been 1 time per week
So as you can imagine im very confused
My legs are weaker & foot drop more, yet night times bladder almost back to normal, but the opposite in the day
i have started this week having bentonite clay foot baths for 30 minutes, every other day
I have not had any herxheimer teaction/symptoms - flu like symptoms, that i was expecting from the die off of toxins/candida
Any suggestions on whats happening to me?
Dr Wahls said you can have a temporary worsening of symptoms as toxins die-off, but wont last longer than a month,
but im having improvements in some ways , but some symptoms are worse, in particular my walking, foot drop ad legs strength
my walking its whats most important to me
thank you in advance
Here is my guess: The bitter, dark green leafy vegetables in the diet are detoxifying your liver; you have reduced your visceral (internal) fat; you are producing fewer cytokines, but your pancreas lags behind and is still producing too much insulin which results in insulin resistance in your skeletal muscles. In time, I think the insulin in your muscles will be flushed out and if you are consuming enough fat, your muscle cells will begin to use ketones for fuel (energy).
Did your walking, foot drop, and leg strength symptoms appear before your bladder problems? Perhaps improvement will come in reverse order.
