Clinical Professor Holds Lecture on Using Paleo Diet to Control MS
According to Beth Roessner at Desert Sun, some multiple sclerosis (MS) patients are making lifestyle changes to take charge of their disease. In addition to their conventional medical treatments, patients are changing their diets to improve their health. 40 year-old Erin Davis is among those with primary progressive MS who have made diet and lifestyle changes with guidance from the Wahls Protocol. By removing gluten and dairy, getting 9 cups of fruits and vegetables per day, and adding regular exercise and stress management, Davis has gotten her MS symptoms under control.
