The MS Recovery Diet
Take Control, Change What You Eat, and Live Symptom-freeBook - 2007
More than half a million people live with multiple sclerosis, yet conventional medicine still has little to offer patients. There is no known cure - and even recent breakthroughs in drug therapy do not work to control many of the symptoms or promise any degree of recovery.But there is an alternative to drugs that can stop and reverse the ravaging symptoms of MS - the MS Recovery Diet . As this book explains, there are five common food triggers that can set off the symptoms of MS - dairy, grains containing glutens, legumes, eggs, and yeast. Yet because MS is such a complex disease, other foods play a role, as culprits or aides. The MS Recovery Diet explains the background, science, and development of this treatment in one source for the first time, and shows readers how to pinpoint their specific problem foods and sensitivities. It also offers more than one hundred simple recipes, as well as strategies to improve digestion, balance the immune system, and repair the body's myelin - crucial steps toward healing the body.
