(Are you a Geo-cacher, by chance? One of my best friends is in the top 5 nationwide; I go hiking with her sometimes. If not, disregard
My husband, dx last March, has read the Boroch book. So have I. I agree with Dom, I'm not so sure about Boroch's "cure-all." I believe, like many on this site, that MS is a "fingerprint" disease, and everyone has different contributing factors which have lead to the breech of the blood-brain barrier- toxins, viruses, bacteria, and genetic predispositions. MS does not appear to be a one-size-hits all disease.
That said, we do agree with Boroch's suggestions on detoxification and replenishment of good bacteria and nutrition using probiotics and supplements. Her book is an excellent place to start. It certainly won't hurt you to follow her suggestions.
My husband has eliminated dairy, red meat and gluten from his diet. He takes almost all of the nutritional supplements Boroch mentions. He is following the advice of his neurologist, and is on Copaxone. He's feeling better this month, more stable, less fatigued and less spasms (thank God). We're not sure what to attribute this to, but whatever it is...his program is "working" for him. We are treating his MS with a holistic and "western" approach.
You will have to experiment and find what works for you. Research the supplements Boroch suggests. If candida is a problem for you, try removing glutens, sugar and white foods from your diet. Drink the red clover tea. Find out what makes you feel better..this is your journey.
As I'm sure you're learning, well-meaning friends and family will now bombard you with books, Dr. references and stories of "how so and so healed themselves, blah, blah, blah..." It's because they care about you, and are trying to help. But make sure that they understand...this is your body and your journey. Everyone's MS tale is unique. Good luck in your quest!
