Do diets work?

Postby heyray » Tue Dec 27, 2011 1:35 pm

I started a diet a couple of months ago and have taken the vitamins and supplements that I read about and have had some drastic improvements. However, I don't know if these successes are long term. I'm wondering if anyone has had any long term success on diet, vitamins, and supplements. Can anyone share their successes.

Well, so far I'm doing ok but I tend to mix my diet at times because I get tempted to eat inflammatory foods. When I stray away from the diet I feel all the symptoms come back. I've been doing ok though and have tried to stay as close to my diet as possible. I don't know what is helping me the diet or the vitamins/supplements? Hopefully both.

heyray:
success examples -
i got my position sensory back in my hands (*tear!) after 3 days on a modified oral-only klenner protocol. means i can type, write, play guitar and piano, which was gone for ages but has been restored for years now, no turning back!
also i regained throat function after two days on modifed (properly timed) magnesium regimen. my throat function wasn't off due to ms though - just too much vit d3 and a resulting electrolyte imbalance.

questions/comments-
what is your supplement regimen exactly, heyray? curious about forms, timings, and dosages. care and balance is needed.

you don't have to stay away from inflammatory foods entirely - just limit them, make mostly healthy choices, and ensure an overall balance. have you done IF scoring on some of your sample daily food intakes? if not, maybe give it a shot, aim for +100 on the anti-inflammatory side and that should get you in the right ballpark.

glad you feel better when on your regimen. keep up the good work! if you ever get a chance, getting bloodwork done can really keep you informed re efficacy. ttfn

Best thing I ever did for me and family was get into vitamins and supplements. I started 50 years ago and as I learned more about them I added more. In 2008 I read papers by Dr F R Klenner and learned about the incredible value of vitamin C for prevention and cures for all most all of mans ills. Looking sixty, at eighty one going for a hundred.
The study of Dr F R Klenner’s life, as doctor in Reidsville NC is a classic example of a daring pioneer in medicine who chose to cure, not just treat his patients. Let him become your doctor. The Klenner Protocol is his cure for MS. …dez...

No! Diets alone will not help with MS, however, it may help your overall health since eating proper is always beneficial. There are Vitamin D and Vitamin B12 supplements which are helpful with MS.

Do you have some proof of that? I mean, will not help is pretty broad. I can see "diets alone will not cure ms" but help?

in my case, my pre dx vegan diet basically GAVE me ms.. and correcting it has mitigated things to the point where i have stable health and nothing i could term an exacerbation that hasnt been eventually revealed to be a nutritional imbalance.
