Has anyone read this book - 'No more MS'

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Has anyone read this book - 'No more MS'

Postby dc10 » Wed Jun 15, 2011 11:41 am

Being a very sceptical person i take books with this kind of title wih a big pinch of salt.
but was wondering if anyone here had read it?

as i have CCSVI i do question whether it would be useful to buy, but have the progress of SPMS - one relapse then progression. and so does the author
(or claims to)

I haven't read the book, but I just went to the website. She talks about avoiding junk food, taking supplements, and detoxing.

Her website just struck me as too slick, all the "limited time offer" stuff. And the price is rather high for e-books.

She recommends information from Dr Rudolph Cartwright. I went to his website, and he charges $397 for the information.

I'll be interested to hear if anyone else has bought and read this information that they're selling.

I certainly don't blame you for being skeptical.

Kate925, totally agree, the website looks way too slick. The big colored type face, testimonials, and limited time offers totally turn me off.

She has a pic of fresh fruit and veggies but really doesn't get into any specifics about diet, supplements, etc. To be fair, I just skimmed the site, so I could have missed it.

So, if you really want to find out more, you have to purchase the book.

Granted, Terry Wahls has a website and sells things, but, she's also on facebook. She has over 2000 friends and posts constantly with articles, answers questions, etc. I bought her book and she goes through a lot of the research she did as well as recipes, etc. I'm not pushing her program, I just find her research and reasoning credible and documented.

dc10, if your thinking of going this route, be her friend on facebook and read her thoughts for free.

maynaka,

Are you following Terry Wahls' diet? I haven't bought her book (too much $ for me right now) but am following some of her recommendations.

I do follow her diet.

I would say I'm about 90%+ compliant. I avoid sugar, diary and gluten. I've always eaten very little red meat.

I try to have a smoothie for lunch everyday. It usually includes a lot of kale, frozen fruit (blueberries, bananas, strawberries, etc.)

We basically do variations of her recipes. We eat a lot of chicken, salmon and salads, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, etc.

Something that is good is bone broth (basically chicken, turkey or beef stock). The one thing we didn't know is adding vinegar to the stock pulls the minerals out of the bone.

How long have you been on it? Have you noticed a difference?

If you're on face book, request her friendship, she post frequently with articles, suggestions, gardening tips, etc.

Maybe your library has a copy of the book? If not, maybe they could buy it so you could then take it out?

One thing is for certain. Just as there are SOME remarkable reports out about having the CCSVI procedure done, there are just as many re; nutrition. Once again, since it seems to be a miracle for some and not others, it just appears that MS is so many things and not just one or MOST would benefit if not all from one or both types of approach. However, anyone can benefit from better nutrition.

Kate925,

The attached article talks specifically about Wahls' diet recommendations, research, etc. Interesting read.

I thought it was a way to get more info without buying the book!

nutrition is a major componant for anyone with MS but if you are still in RR stage and especially if your kind remisses for years at a time you may still hold remission with it. I avoid all Rx, preservatives and try to eat raw veggies especially 15 minutes before eating meat. I keep my electrolytes in high supply especally magnesium and vit D. i actually make sure carbohydrates are in supply because that seems to help me. I try to live this illness knowing I am babying my liver, my adrenals, my stomach and my kidneys because they are how I take in this world and MS has an environmental component. sometimes I spare myself the energy of digestion and I juice. I am not in total remission I can feel underlying instability in my body but not like before where I was all over the place with no point of remission for 10 months straight. it has been 10 years since my first bout and I have been hosptialized 5 times in this period with major motor distrubances and paralysis. I have had to have my blood washed with plasma pherisis twice and have had prednisone treatments. in crisis I have not other choice but to turn to doctors but I try to keep my balence on my own

Anti candida diet I presume

Postby fee001 » Wed Jul 06, 2011 8:07 am

Hi!

I havent read it, believe it or not I dont do big reading. and I presume bottom line is credit card details.

personally that part I disagree with. All info that benefits anyone diagnosed should free. I also presume diet was a large part and probably an anti Candida one.

As for ccsvi, My own experience of adjustment of a misaligned Atlas, has increased my blood flow dramatically to my hands in particular.

I have also had Candida which requires a special diet which excludes sugar and yeast. plus suppliments are required.

National Candida Society
PO Box 151
Orpington
Kent BR5 1UJ
United Kingdom
telephone: +44 (0)1689-813039
e-mail: info@candida-society.org
website: www.candida-society.org

I hope info helps, I've tried not to waffle on, so make up your own minds ok. also google Atlas and blood flow, you should get some info up.

ok I'm done
