MS symptoms: 20 Years Later the Diet Advice Stays the Same for MS Patients

Unknown-3My doctor told me when I was diagnosed with MS in 1996 that there was no diet that could help. Simply eating healthy to maintain overall health was all I could do to prevent illness and potential new MS attacks. Nearly twenty years later the advice is the same. Diets high in fiber and low in fat can combat fatigue because they boost energy. CNN took a look at MS diets recently in the article, “The Best Diets for Multiple Sclerosis” at Their conclusions included: 1) there is no MS diet, only healthy eating; 2) keep the saturated and trans fats to a minimum while increasing omega-3 & 6 fatty acids (fish & nuts); 3) 5 servings of fruits & vegetables per day; and 4) consult your doctor before beginning a new diet.
