      These are what I follow. Kind of a mix n match to find what was right for  me. But, we are all different so my vitamins and supplements are not the same as his. I am woman, he is man!! lol  

      It takes some getting used to, but i noticed a huge difference in my MS. It helps with my bouts of the dizzies and my fatigue. (along with my regualer medicines)I also lost 20 pounds. It helped my spastic colon issue almost within the first week. No more...get out of the way I need the potty! lol  

      I still eat meat but only wild and free-range meats, and no farmed fish.  

      They have gluten free breads and pastas. The breads could dent a wall, lol so i always have that toasted. The buns are yummy and they even have pancakes!! woo hoo  

      My hubby does this with me and he feels better than ever.

      Remember, we are all different and what works for one may not work for others.

      Blessings!!

        • I have also found that nutrition plays a huge role in my MS symptoms.  In the last almost 2 years, I have lost about 70lbs.  I have found what exercise I can physically do and works for me.  I do aquasize, walking, and yoga.  And I have also gotten OFF high blood pressure medicine.  Yes - I do monitor my BP on a weekly basis and it has been fine.  Due to the spasticity issues, nerve damage, and chronic fatigue - I am unable to do treadmills or weight lifting.  I have been following a diet of eating poulty, vegetables (lots of salads), and fruit.  I eat very, very little red meat.  I also take Fish Oil, Vitamin D, and a multivitamin as supplements.  Recently, I have incorporated homemade fresh multi-grain bread - instead of store bought.  (Yes - put that bread-maker to good use.)  Going to a “whole foods” approach of eating - not only is it good for you but helps with my overall health.

        • Isn’t it amazing that we can get healthy and lose weight by putting the “right” foods in our body. I don’t have MS but a couple of years ago after a year of achy joints and other symptoms they finally came up with fibromyalgia. I decided to do some research and went to a chiropractor/nutritionist. He completely changed my diet and after around 1 month and three adjustments I had no pain!! I have to take medications health issues but before I began eating better and exercising, I felt so much worse. I know a lot of kids with autism have made great progress by cutting out sugar and gluten so I really believe it works. Keep it up ladies. Your doing great.

        • The other big nutrient is fish oil.  The benefits of the omega 3’s are overwhelming.  It helps everything from heart health to viscosity for mental alertness to calming ADD symptoms to calming dexelsia issue to calming postpartum depression and on and on...  It is amazing how much nutrition plays in our overall health.
