for the details of her regimen. In brief, the diet allows NO sugar, and it does require LOTS of dark green leafy vegetables; a very limited amount of starchy vegetables is allowed.
As to the neuromuscular electrical stimulation, I am sure that she will advise you to see a physical therapist.
Her clinical trial (phase 1) began in the summer; she plans to publish the results; I expect those will be available by fall. She spoke to me of plans for a phase 2 trial – perhaps you would qualify to participate in that.
thanks for the info. Do you know what conditions it is supposed to help? Would it help If you can still walk without assistance?
