Are There Any Plant Based Or Vegans Here Feeling Better With Their MS.

Are There Any Plant Based Or Vegans Here Feeling Better With Their MS.

I find that what I eat can make me very symptomatic. Meat, heavy fats and sugars are the worst. I was trying to transition to a plant based diet.

I believe whole food plant based diet manages my symptoms. Went full on strict vegan for couple years after diagnosis now not as strict (junk food vegan) but planning to return as starting to not feel well. I was pretty symptom free for 20 years.

Yes, I dove head first into a raw/vegan diet after my diagnosis in 2008. It took about 3 weeks to fully detox from sugar, dairy, etc. I'm not as strict now but still juice and drink veggies and supplement with Barley Max, a pure plant suplement that I will not ever be without! (Hallelujah Acres in SC), I am symptom free except for dropped foot and sensitivity to heat.

I use locally sourced Honey (it is not vegan) in my coffee with Oatmilk.😋

Love that you dove right in! I'm scared of sugar withdrawal. I have been looking for sugar alternatives but I think I just need to give it up. My poor coffee! Lol. I'm so happy you have gotten positive results.

Yes! That is terrific news! I'm going to be serious about it. I hate feeling worse when I eat. Thank you so much!
