If you suffer from the auto-immune disorder known as Celiac disease then yes. But from a pure MS point of view you should be much more concerned about dairy and meat protein intake. When I was diagnosed with RRMS last July I dove into all sorts of material on the subject. If you can bet a copy of Dr. Campbell's book "The China Study" there is a wealth of information in it about auto-immune disorders. Also I found this link to be very helpful and informative http://www.direct-ms.org/bestbet.html
Best to you on your journey!
M, that is a difficult situation and one I am not sure I would have an easy answer for. I will share something with you a little later as I am on my way out the door. In the meantime utilize the ms.org link I put up above as there is a wealth of information, not only there but on the entire site. In the end, all of us have to make the decision to do whats right for us. Hopefully those in your circle will begin to appreciate your needs and support your efforts! Like Yoda says, "do or do not, there is no try"!
The is something called Gluten Ataxia. I try not to eat gluten because I do feel stronger without it. The whole issue of wheat and gluten isn't medically understood and it doesn't help that it's become so faddish. Try it for two weeks and see for yourself, but read up a little on what grains are ok-- it's not just wheat that causes problems. Also soy sauce has wheat in it, so that nixes Chinese take out.
Tecfidera fights inflammation. It makes sense to also fight inflammation with diet.
A nurse practitioner at my alternative medicine clinic said no one should be eating gluten. I know it is recommended that anyone with an auto immune could benefit from removing red meat, dairy, eggs, soy, gluten.
We never share your personal information with anyone.
