Before starting with me there was a comment about healing MS with diet, which included a link to her website. Certainly “Healing MS” with some diet is nothing new, but I did take a look; though I didn’t read everything.
While I applaud Colleen on her success I do not think diet change alone is sufficient to suddenly stop demyelination. I do think that diet, exercise, etc. can play a large role in your health though, regardless of disease, and that can help anyone. Furthermore, while I have not read the book nor the diet I agree that whole foods are much healthier; although much more expensive.
From the site I gathered that the diet revolved around getting less toxins, which is great. Unfortunately, nasty toxins exist everywhere. Car exhaust, cleaners, pesticides, medicines, synthetic soaps, etc. Even if she has gone to all green cleaners, landscaping, etc. which is something I didn’t see on her page, you would still pick up toxins. For someone on this diet detox program I would expect to see some kind of sauna therapy to purge the rest of the toxins, but I didn’t see that either.
Unfortunately, because of the expense of a whole foods diet this puts this out of the reach of many people. I am guessing that for many people, especially sick people, this plan is way out of their price range.
Finally, I still stand by my former post that L-Form bacteria seem like a reasonable cause for Multiple Sclerosis.
