If you found The Multiple Sclerosis Diet Book useful, you might like to know that an updated and revised edition will be published on 17 February 2017.
Since the book was first published in 2007, doctors with MS such as George Jelinek in Australia and Terry Wahls in the USA, have started to advocate diet as a treatment for MS. Although they each suggest a slightly different diet, both have found nutritional medicine more effective in their own case than the currently available drugs. The updated edition includes both George Jelinek’s Overcoming MS diet, and the Wahls Protocol, as well as current research on the benefits of vitamin D and the effects of substances such as salt and sugar on people with MS. There are also lots of new, easy to cook, recipes.
To whet your appetite, here’s one of my favourite recipes which is suitable for a healthy eating diet, the low-fat diet, the Best Bet diet and the Overcoming MS diet.
