birth control pill

Does anyone know if there's any correlation between the birth control pill and MS? I've heard something about it before and just started looking into it a bit and just read they think they might be related because the prevelance of MS increased over the years from the introduction of the pill? When ...

Yes, typical "MS diets" urge a low-fat, no saturated fat, diet. However, nuts and avacados are high in fat, it is the "good-for-you" fats (your body needs some fat to survive), they are not high in saturated fats.

egg whites?

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 unlimit...

Hey, Not sure, but I think it's all about flavour and maybe consistency? The author said she tried so many different store-bought flours, and different types of flours and tested them in recipes until she finally "perfected" a flour recipe that works for any purpose, baking, cooking, pancakes, etc. ...

I bought the cookbook "cooking for Isaiah" by Silvana Nardone It has some great recipes, but best of all, it has an amazing recipe for gluten-free all purpose flour (that can also easily be made into a pancake mix that there's a recipe for as well) I was spending $6 at the grocery store for this tin...

I wouldn't advise it because most protien powders/shakes, I'm pretty sure, have aspartame in them which they say is bad for MS. I changed my diet and started eating more protien and taking protien shakes before I had a major attack that lead to my diagnosis. I obviously don't know if there was any c...

back burn?

I can't really tell if this is a symptom from my MS or not so I thought I'd ask if anyone else experiences this... If I'm sitting hunched over, bent over, or even just stressed out sometimes lol, I get this sore, burning sensation in my back, in the middle, I guess where my ribs are on my back is th...

BBD - snack ideas?

I follow the Swank recommedations but also try to incorporate BBD recommendations and avoid wheat, dairy and legumes. I find it very challenging to find things to snack on when you're just hungry for something quick, or for lunch-type meals. I'd like to hear what others on these diets eat for snacks...

Thank you both for your responses. The scan isnt covered by OHIP so it is $250. That is not outrageous in my opnion, so I think I'll try it just to see what the results say. I understand I sadly can't be treated in Canada and that they might not have the best equiptment or procedure, but I'm just cu...

But now I cant remember if people said on here that its worth it doing that scan? Like can they tell properly? I just thought I remembered ppl saying that alot of ppl ...

Closest place to Canada (Ontario) to get CCSVI treatment???

I've been looking further into CCSVI and considering treatment options for the future. So far, the only place I've talked to sends you to India for treatment. I understand they may have some of the best doctors in the world, but having a baby and a toddler at home, I wouldn't want to be that far awa...

I just called the port perry location maybe over a week ago and was told OHIP covers it. I was put on a waiting list though. I also called Barrie and was told that I need a referral sent in, I can't just be put on a waiting list, and that OHIP does not cover it, but the doctor covers the cost? (I di...
