Try Dr. Bergman approach. Give it a month and you might cure your MS. Try eating the fruits and vegetables and see if it works. What have you got to lose. Maybe you find you do not need the drugs.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGmyUppmt-g
interesting video. he mentions a correlation between brain/spine health to ms. i was told i had a kyphotic spinal deformality a few years back. and yes, i will be eating lots of fruits & veggies.

thank you for your input. who ever i speak with, it'll be the same answer, i need to take better care of myself. im sure ms research has gone a long way with disease "modifying" drugs, but i'll be searching for easier avenue's for now.
hey there welcome to TiMS
sorry to hear you're having an unpleasant week :S
questions for you:
have you read my intro piece? if not here's the link.. regimens-f22/topic2489.html
do you think you can get your docs to order you some serum nutrient tests?
what can you tell me about your background that makes the nutrition approach appealing? (very important info.. for one thing, this is how you build scientific rationale for testing, if needed..)
no harm asking for some more assessment before you get fed into the ms machine..! you can answer me out here or via private message, whichever you prefer.
thank you for welcoming me, i'm very excited to speak with you!
my week could be worse, i recevied a wake-up call thats about it.
i have read your intro post, and am going to try and get all the suspect nutrients you mention within the week.
work from home single father. i rarely see the sun. i enjoy a mostly vegetarian diet, and love raw foods. lots of salads, rarely any variety. i try to find the highest quality i can, the main reason i stay away from animal products. i dont live in the most enviormentally conscious community. im interested in nutrion because my diet was similar to a garbage can up until my early 20's. i was 255lbs at 19 (5 feet 7 inches tall) i lost most of the weight by 22. some would consider me under weight now at 130lbs on a heavy day. embarassed to say that i am a smoker, and understand how important quitting is going to be.
thats the important backound info that comes to mind, im behind a computer screen, it's as honest as it gets. do you have any other specific ?'s
thank you for your time. im really happy i found this forum, and such a knowledgable community.
