Fasting

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has experience with some kind of fasting, like alternate day fasting, 5:2 fasting, or even longer fasts. For instance, how many hours at a time did you refrain from eating? And of course, did you notice any effects (positive or negative) on your MS?

In principle it should have a beneficial influence on your health, but whether this is so for pwMS I do not know... But it has ...

Breeding the Nutrition Out of Our Food

We like the idea that food can be the answer to our ills, that if we eat nutritious foods we won’t need medicine or supplements. We have valued this notion for a long, long time. The Greek physician Hippocrates proclaimed nearly 2,500 years ago: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be ...

Wahls diet for non-meat eaters?

Does anyone know if Dr. Wahl's diet can be effectively adapted for those if us who are vegetarian? We eat fish, but no other meat. Wondered if there is a way around the grass-fed meat, organ meat, and bone broth? Also wondered if any beans or legumes can be used. They are a major source of protein for us. :-/

Fat/gluten connection

First of all, let me admit that I watch entirely too much TV.

Next, I was watching "America's Test Kitchen" yesterday when store-bought tortillas were reviewed. The evaluation was also on their website:

"The higher the percentage of fat, the more we liked the tortilla. First, fat adds flavor (our winner, at 9 percent, was called “slightly rich” and “buttery”). Second, a higher percentage of fat helps produce a more tender yet flaky tortilla by ...

Ketogenics Diet

I am currently doing the MCT Keto diet. It has only been about 2 months, but 3 weeks being serious about it. I keep my carbs below 50g a day, which is about a 1/4 cup dry rice. Coconut Oil and Butter and Stress B Complex all for MCT. I received an alert from Google talking about Dr. Gary Levin. Has anyone bought into his treatment program? I guess the gist is eating healthy and ...

Warrior diet anyone?

Yesterday I started Crossfit and we talked with the trainer about diets and he is an old friend of mine and know of my condition. He told me about cyclic eating/diets and from what I saw I liked Warriors Diet. It can be combined with Paleo I think and the trainer suggested that those diets help overcome certain sicknesses. Anyone ever heard anything about this diet and MS? It is very radical even compared to ...

Natural supplement combination appears to help MS

Multiple sclerosis is a challenging disease on many fronts, including the search for effective ways to treat and manage symptoms and relapse. Results of a novel trial using omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, as well as vitamins, have shown some promise for people with multiple sclerosis......

Red meat and l-carnitine

This news about carnitine, TMAO (produced by gut bacteria that metabolize l-carnitine), and thickening of the arteries is everywhere today. Apparently, it is not the saturated fat which is the villain in red meat. Many diets for MS limit the amount of red meat – could this finding be the real mechanism at work? Taking the supplement may not be a good idea either, according to the researcher Dr. Stanley press Hazen.

"For people taking ...

Vitamins and Amino Acids

There is so much misinformation or contridicting information out there it really is hard to know what is the right thing to do. I do know that MS affects people differently so some people may or may not benefit from certain recommendations.

Is it advantageous to take a multi vitamin and an amino acid? My mate feels that it is a waste of money and that I am just "pissing it all out". I have ...

Some New foods

Just a fyi for people on dairy free diets. We have recently come across some new foods that people might be interested in:
Good Karma Flax Milk - This actually tastes pretty good, and is loaded with omega-3. It's now readily available in many supermarkets here in the USA, and it's fairly inexpensive.
Daiya vegan cheese - Comes in several flavors - cheddar, mozzarella,etc. All the ingredients look quite safe. It actually tastes fairly close ...
