Hi,
I don't know how much I am allowed to say on this site but I have had an auto-immune disease for 10 years .

About 8 years ago I started on a wheat/gluten/dairy/potato/sugar free diet and I know it helps so much with the symptoms.....as soon as I go off the diet and supplements I get really bad attacks of numbness and visual problems, dead legs (not able to move properly/speech problems.

I recently tested this again (as I am quite lazy when it comes to nutrition and diet) and I went off my diet again and immediately I started to get worse, very tired all the time with attacks of incontinence.

Now I know that this topic is very contriversal but I really believe eating healthy has helped. I understand the theory about not boosting the immune system but the only thing I have been advised not to take is echinacia (spelt wrong) I take 2mg of vit c, phospotydlserine, 2mg fish oil, primrose oil, 3 multi mineral tabs and 2 one a day vitamins. I have to say without this diet and supplements I know i would still be laid up in bed.

Any doctor cannot say it is a bad thing to cut out refined sugar from your diet as it has no nutritional benefits at all and you can get natural sugar from fruit.

I eat lots of oily fish and vegetables (steamed) I have white meat only I eat lots of nuts (not peanuts) and berries like blueberries and blackberries. I stay away form processed foods and cook everything myself (I buy frozen veg for convienence)

I really wish there was a proper study into diet and it's effect on the body for all we know MS could be a manifestation of a deficiency in the body that we don't even know about that causes the body to attack itself.

I think it is better to have a healthier diet as possible and eat what we were meant to eat before processed and GM foods came onto the scene it can't do any harm!!! :rolleyes:

Hey Leanne! :wave:

So glad to hear someone else think about their health with regards to diet. We too avoid processed foods, deli foods, cheeses, and prepare our meals from scratch. I tried juicing veggies and fruits too. Sodium Nitrate is in all lunchmeats, hotdogs, bacon, etc., and can cause for some, horrific headaches. If it can cause that--what else! Just the word alone--S--O-D-I-U-M N-I-T-R-A-T-E doesn't sound like anything I would want in my system. Yikes!

Have you heard of Celiac's disease. It is gluten intolerance. Is that what you've been treating?

Anyway, I'm glad that you've found diet that works for you! :)
