I came across this article a while ago:
It seems to back up what I have been thinking.
This time around I need to do this carefully. I need only non-hormone-fed beef, which means buying a large amount from a farm. And also non-medicated chicken, which we've found a supplier for now. Good veggies are tough here as we don't really have decent produce markets. But I'll have to make due as that's not going to change any time soon.
When I got my diagnosis back in February, the first thing I did (impulse buy!) was buy the Swank Diet book. I've looked through it and can certainly see why it's a good healthy diet. However, I have a problem with low blood sugar that requires I have more protein than that on a daily basis. I also find that the recommended oils give me wicked acid reflux that lasts for days.
Anyway, I'm just curious if anyone else here is doing anything along the low carb lines and what your experience is with it relating to your health and your symptoms. Thx.
There are many diets which are designed for MS and are essentially low-carb; among these is the book, The Gold Coast Cure, by Andrew Larson, M.D. and wife Ivy Ingram Larson. Also, look into the diet and her story on the website by Dr. Terry Wahls (http://www.terrywahls.org/).
