Currently there is no official guidance on this matter but with the explosion of interest in things like the Dr. Terry Whals Protocol there is something to be said for 'giving it a try' to see if it improves your MS symptoms. Plus if you view websites such as MS Society and MS Trust they all mention 'special diets and MS' which presumably means theres credit given to diet adjustments?
Regardless of whether you have MS or not, the following are proven:
Vitamins and Minerals: Fight fatigue and promote wellness.
Antioxidants: Fight inflammation
High Fibre: Help with bowel movements
Some other browsing of studies have shown that people with MS are more likely to lack nutrients particularly Vitamins D3, A and B12.
There are a number diet options that have been talked about over the years and some that have exploded in popularity more recently. Many are based on hypothesis but the key factor is whether or not it helps you as an individual? After all MS is different for everyone so what may help one, may not help another. If you have MS you will know that 'anything is worth trying' to ensure you live your best life.
Some of the best know diets that 'claim' to make a difference are below:
Changing my diet and adding supplements improved my mental alertness including thinking, learning and planning.
Changing my diet reduced my fatigue, improved my energy levels and reduced my muscle problems and overall mobility.
Changing my diet reduced constipation issues.
Adding supplements improved my bladder problems.
Making a positive change to my diet and seeing the benefits made me feel back in control so improved my mental health.
As mentioned in the 'About' page - the reason for setting up this small scale snacks website is based on my frustration of not being able to easily source yummy snacks in the UK that met my dietary requirements. Had I not had the privilege of having spent time in the USA and Canada over the past few years I would have assumed that what is on the shelf at my local supermarket / health food shop was all that was available. I truly believe without sourcing food and snacks to satisfy my cravings along with the support of my partner, I would have failed at this diet plan within a month of starting it ! Check out the online shop for yummy snacks to keep your cravings at bay whilst still meeting your diet aims.
