high vegetable low protein diet benefits multiple sclerosis

There's a secret about MS that, for some reason, your doctor will never tell you.

This pilot study included 20 people with multiple sclerosis (MS). The people in the study had relapsing-remitting MS, meaning that they experience alternating periods of flare-ups and recovery.

For one year, ten of the people in the study followed a standard Western diet that included the usual red meat, processed meat, refined grains, sweetened food, salt, and a high intake of saturated and omega-6 fatty acids. The other ten followed a high vegetable/low protein diet that included fruit and vegetables, legumes, nuts, whole grains, extra virgin olive oi, very little poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products, not much refined cereals, salt, sugar or fried food and no alcohol, red meat, saturated fats from animal sources or trans-fats.

The people in the high vegetable/low protein group had a greater population of intestinal bacteria that are associated with anti-inflammatory immune activity. This effect of diet is important because MS has been linked to alterations in intestinal bacteria that have a negative effect on the immune system.

But what is really impressive is that the people who were on the high vegetable/low protein diet had significantly lower MS disability scores than the people on the typical Western diet. And while nine of the ten people on the Western diet suffered a relapse over the course of the year, a significantly fewer three people in the high vegetable/low protein diet did.

This is not the first study to find that high plant/low saturated fat diets benefit MS. Several studies have clearly shown that saturated fat, animal fat and animal protein are associated with MS and death from MS and that the reverse is true for diets rich in vegetables and polyunsaturated fats.

For some reason, the medical community has been reluctant to share this fact that has been known since Dr.Roy Swank's first study was published in 1950.

I was having joints pain in both hands inside and outside and muscle weakness due to multiple sclerosis (MS). I was falling a lot, I had headaches and lightheadedness. I couldn’t keep myself balanced, and walk with a tremor like I cannot control my steps. I was on Copaxone, the first year was daily and later was 40 mg, 3 times a week. It didn’t make a tremendous difference for me. I've tried therapy, but it is not helping. I was seeking something to help regain my life to be able to do things for myself. It is frustrating when it feels like nobody is trying to help you find some relief. Through my primary physician i learnt about a (MS) herbal formula from NATURAL HERBAL GARDENS and their success rate with the treatment, i immediately started on the (MS) herbal protocol, I am glad to report the herbal formula worked effectively and there was no side effects, I had a total decline in symptoms, the joints pain, weakness and other symptoms stopped, my MS is totally REVERSED, Here is a link to the website we ordered from ww w.naturalherbalgardens.c om DON’T GIVE UP HOPE.

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in October 2011, at the age of 55. I woke up one morning with numbness in my lower back and legs, I couldn't feel my feet touching the floor. I saw my doctor and had an MRI to see if I had a disc problem, it was negative and she told me she feared MS. I was sent to a neurologist, had two more MRIs, and was told that night that I have four lesions on my spine MS. I tried every shots available but nothing worked. In 2015, my neurologist and I decided to go with natural treatment and was introduced to Natural Herbal Gardens natural organic MS Herbal formula, i had a total decline of symptoms with this treatment, the numbness, terrible back pains, stiffness, body weakness, double vision, depression and others has subsided.
