The McDougall Research & Education Foundation has funded a study on the dietary treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) with the Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. The Neurology Department of the School of Medicine, headed by Dennis Bourdette, MD and under the supervision of Vijayshree Yadav, MD, enrolled patients in the McDougall Program for intervention with a low-fat vegan diet. This is a single-blind, controlled trial using the latest MRI technologies and neurologic evaluations.
I’m not impressed with all the diets that talk of ‘a cure for MS’ I believe that healthy eating is important for all of us. So find a healthy diet that you are happy with and tweak it a bit for your personal circumstances. MS is a very personal disease with no universal path or speed of progression. My advice is to eat healthy, stay as fit as your MS allows and “Live Long and Prosper”
