In 1997 at age 37 I was diagnosed with MS based on a single bad exacerbation and MRI's showing lesions (3) in my brain and a large one on my spine. I immediately started and strictly adhered to the Swank diet. I had no problems til 5 years later (when my father passed away) I had optic neuritis. I went blind in my Right eye and the central vision has never returned. Other than that, I have had no troubles. I recently had a set of MRIs (just to see if there were any silent lesions) and there were none. No lesions in my spine can be seen and there is one small one in my brain. I have never taken any CRAB drugs, just the diet. I sincerely believe that has made all the difference.
I hope this helps someone.
