Someone said i should stay away from shellfish

Postby Killdoni » Mon Sep 24, 2012 3:59 pm

Hi

22-year old diagnosed may 2011. I'm not a fan of CRAB's, and don't take any of the injections.

I really want to find good resources to better understand my condition, and the best way to treat myself symptomatically. I'm not interested in learning to suppress or change my immune system, but to find the best way of nourishing my body so that it can take care of itself. Am i in the right place?

hi! and, yes you are in the right place.

(and in doing so, you will change your immune system's behaviour.. if you're like most other ms patients, your immune system needs a 'boost' to its natural suppressive systems in order to function properly).

what was the rationale for avoiding shellfish, iima?

a little reading, if you're interested: regimens-f22/topic2489.html#p15460
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

Jimmylegs – I think it was meant as a joke, shellfish… CRABS. But I might be wrong.

it was meant as a joke, but an allergy screen says it's not good for me.

yep - the ms immune system is notably 'out of order'. and thank you! :D
