The diet you mention sounds like The MS Recovery Diet
. That was one diet that clued me in that I was sensitive to gluten. Many years later, I can eat gluten/wheat with no problem, but my "cog fog" will increase.
The doctor that wrote the "Grain Brain" book explains the impact that grains can have on the body and brain, so my gluten thing makes more sense afte reading that book.
I've tried Dr. Terri Wahl's protocol and think there is a lot of wisdom in that diet. Plus it's bound to help with people's weight if that's a problem for you.
Having tried many MS-related diets, I'm convinced
that there is a link between diet and MS, and to MS flares or inflammation. The problem is American culture makes it nearly impossible to stick to a sane diet. :-(
This view is increasingly shared by MS-specializing neurologists. My own 100% conventional neurologist in a large VA hospital specializing in MS thinks that MS stems from gut-related issues. The YouTube "superstar" Dr. Aaron Boster
, a conventional/mainstream MS neurologist, advocates "clean" eating. My guess is that it's only a matter of time before science links our chemically/pesticide-saturated, industrially-processed foods to be a key negative component impacting our health.
