"The Real Diet of Man", now available as a free PDF

I started this diet almost a year ago. And am doing extremely well with it. Its premise goes beyond everything you have been taught to believe about food, especially with regard to healthy food for those of us with MS. And like the Wahls diet, it proposes that a diet high in fat from grass fed meats, going gluten free and the elimination of processed foods are the key to good health and healing. I ...

new to MS

Hello, another 'minority' newbie here. MS has become a little more personal lately. I lived across the street from a man with MS when I was 8-10 years old. I have numerous symptoms now, no firm dx. Saw i neurologist for 1st time last week and he kind of tied things together for me. I'm male, 50 yrs old. Had vision problems 2 1/2 yrs ago. The peripheral cutout healed but the blurriness did not. ...
