Do diet friendly neurologists exist?

Due to the lengthy times required to wait to see a neurologist here..6 months from probable diagnosis to actually seeing one. I was left with plenty of time to research.
I am of the strong belief that diet and lifestyle play a large part in health and slowing the progression of this illness. When I mentioned diet to my neurologist her reaction was as if I was talking about voodoo!
Does anyone out there have ...

Are egg whites ok on the swank or best bet diet? I know the swank diet says no more than 1 egg/day and nore more than 3/week, and I'm assuming because of saturated fats, but egg whites contain no saturated fat and it doesn't say anything about them so I don't know if egg whites are ok to eat unlimited?
