Apparently a recurring theme here. As my personal diet leaves a lot to be desired, health wise :-), maybe I should try one of these out. This one comes via my mother-in-law’s doctor who inadvertently brought this diet up again (Wow, two years!). The doctor she works for is ex-OB/GYN and has turned into a functional medicine doctor (I had to look up what that was). On a funny note my mother-in-law’s son now thinks she is working for a witch.

She recommends Dr. Terry Wahls for the treatment of MS, also a functional medicine doctor. Briefly looking at her website she made a remarkable recovery from her wheelchair and secondary progressive MS. She now has her own protocol for curing/treating multiple sclerosis which is the Wahls Protocol. Reading about the Wahls Protocol it appears to mostly be the Paleo Diet. On a positive note you can try out the plan and see if it works for you.

As I said in the previous post on this: Tis the season to go on a diet. Good luck

  1. As I noticed today that researchers are experimenting with MitoQ, a prescription antioxidant, to treat neurological diseases. Per the article the researcher’s think that MitoQ offers promise as a treatment for MS. Of course a healthy diet would probably work at least as well and not cost nearly as much. For now I’ll keep on with my fries and bacon.

  2. So are you going to try Dr. Wahl’s diet? I found Dr. Wahl’s website about a year ago. I’m always randomly searching for MS cures, since my older brother has MS. Her own personal turn around was pretty convincing to me. So I sent my brother the link to her site. He’s never been willing to make any diet changes though. I’d be really interested in hearing your results if you decide to follow her protocol. It does seem very paleo, but she requires a large amount of dark green leafy vege. Not really by brother’s thing.

  3. Eriksgirl out of the blue asked me if I had heard of the Wahls protocol today, and her theory on gluten sensitivity mimics MS. The gluten thing was new, but it makes sense and fits with her diet. It also reaffirms my belief that eriksgirl is a rare reader. 😉 The only person I know on a paleo diet is a friend who moved from a vegetarian diet for heath reasons. Maybe some day but not today.
