This diet works 100%. Of course my neurologist scoffs at diets helping MS.
I was diagnosed at 25. Started with Swank moved directly to Best Bet(I don't think it was called that back then, I just read his web page with his findings). I didn't do no blood test just cut out saturated fats, gluten, eggs, diary and legumes. Back then there were not too many gluten free but these days it's much easier.
How do I know it works?
Diagnosed at 25 and was on best bet until 35. I had zero remissions and was very active (BJJ + gym+ tons of cardio). I ate strict and did the supplement protocol with about 1-2 TBSP. of Cod Liver Oil.
35-40 - I feel off the wagon. My life went side ways and I began to drink (not too heavily) and ate like total garbage (fast foods, sweets etc). I gained 60+ pounds. Symptoms started gradually until my right leg dragged, pins and needles on feet and hands and then rock bottom- Bladder issues that caused antibiotic resistant UTI. This last issue was a literal nightmare that had me thinking suicide more than once.
At 40 I had enough and went back to best bet very strict. Slowly my symptoms disappeared (some like the dragging leg cleared up quickly). I started working out . It was very tough as my balance went south and my cardio was atrocious. Could be the MS , could be the weight gain. Anyways the more I worked out the more I could work out. Body bounced back.
I am 42 now and the only issue I have is bladder which gets better but slowly. I am happy to say that I am able to go back to BJJ and Kickboxing and even at my age I keep up with the younger guys and I get better by the day.
I have no doubt diet can help MS people.At the very least it will prevent other issues like heart disease etc. I also take 3000mg of Vit d3 in addition to cod liver oil. I eat a lot of veggies,fruits, brown rice, chicken (I don't like fish) and once a week I treat myself to very lean beef. I love Greek food so this fits (chicken, rice + potatoes). The diet is easy to follow and I encourage all to try it. Also work out. Even if you can move only one hand - do it. The body will get better.
This is a treacherous disease and let's face it- neurologist don't have too many answers. Take care of your diet and body and health will follow.
