Go Gluten Free for a month. Slowly add Gluten or Wheat back into your diet. If you have intolerances to them you will know. I did it for a week. It was expensive! My daughter had a birthday party after a week so had some homemade cupcakes. Our stomach's burned so bad. It was either the wheat or gluten's. I have now started cutting out ingredient list of a product when I find something that upsets my stomach. I figure I can compare the different labels and see if I can find a common denominator. I want to go Gluten Free for a whole month this time. I want to do it right and see what I can figure out. I do know that if you have intolerances or allergies to certain foods you may not have a response that is noticeable to you but the response may be going on inside your body. If you consume certain foods that your body is allergic to; your immune system will stay on high alert all the time. This is not good. Here are some diet suggestions- Check out a website called MS Diet for Women. Read the book Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis by George Jelinek, the Swank Diet, a book called The China Study. Really about any book on Amazon that deals with MS diet. There is a whole world of people out there that do not take potent meds and instead control their MS by diet & supplements. My shot Copaxone is 30% effective. People changing their diets (and are regimented about it) are reducing their symptoms on most entirely. I do know that you can go completely into remission by hormones and diet! That is a fact. I am speaking in regards to Remitting/Relapsing only. Research hormones and MS. You will find a lot. I have poured hours into research please send me a message if you need any help. Currently, I am going to a BioIdentical Hormone clinic, doing allergy testing to see if any foods show up, and trying to get into the grove of trying one of these diets. I believe the book Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis by Dr. Jelinek is the path I will utimately follow! Good luck! Also, please take action swiftly! After 10 years the majority of people with remitting relapsing will go into secondary. From what I can tell - alot of the alternative medicine will not be as beneficial once you go into secondary. :( I am right at nine years. I'm on a very aggressive mission!! :)
I have been on a gluten-free diet as well as low sat fat and no milk only fish, chicken and lots of fruit and veggies. It has worked for me. My symptoms have disappeared except for my memory/foggyness that hasn't gotten any better.
see that the article isn't on the internet now but the author: anon that is eighteen pages long. Will have to figure out a way to get it on this site I guess. So things they don't won't you to see and this is one of this things I guess.
See if you can get this report that I printed off the internet in 5/24/2009 "http://earthtym.net/ref-fungi-horm.htm". If the report isn't on the internet now I have a copy of it. Can't explain why I didn't use this report to my advantage before now other than look at what I posted on my day report... Maybe as a whole we can help each other with this report. It is like I have got to slow down and smell the roses for my benefit, too. Short term memory let's you forget about things that are this important; you think?
