I was diagnosed in 1982 at age 33. My pnstereing symptom was Optic neuritis. I have been on Betaseron since 1993. I have Secondary Progressive MS. I use a cane or a walker and a scooter for longer distances. I still drive.I follow a low fat, mainly vegetarian diet, drink no caffeine or alchohol. I have continuous Tinnitus, take baclofen, ditropan, ativan, prozac, prilosec, neurontin and suffer from constipation, for that I take Benefiber. and try to increase my fiber and yoga. A friend sent me the link to your Ted talk and I have been very interested in your diet. I have increased my greens, cabbage and practically stopped my grain intake. I do love bread and only ate multigrain. I’ve have eliminated white flour and whiite sugar from my diet for many years. For breakfast I usually ate oatmeal with Firberone cereal and lots of nuts and dates and fruit and berries. I have stopped drinking soy milk and started almond milk. I am eating more chicken livers and grass fed organic beef and chicken. I am a convert to Kale chips The only cows milk I eat is greek yoghurt. I eat lots of nuts.I am serious about following your diet. I looked up all the supplements you recommend and they seem essential to the diet. I want to stop all my medications, especiallly the interferon. I am so tired of having MS. I must take a nap in the afternoon or I cannot function.I am divorced and live alone. I have a 27 year old daughter,I would like to know the best way to start your diet. Do I have to totally eliminate grains and beans? How do I stop taking my meds?
