Multiple Sclerosis Patients Find Dietary Treatment More Effective Than Pharmaceutical Regimens
Date:9/25/2007

NEW YORK, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- MS sufferers, who have found little benefit from drug treatments, are finding success in a diet that targets five food triggers. Sugar and saturated fats also contribute to the disease process. By identifying and eliminating food sensitivities, along with other simple dietary changes, the MS Recovery Diet can halt and reverse symptoms for those afflicted with MS.

"By not activating the immune system, the cascade of events-the immune cells crossing the blood-brain barrier, then attacking the myelin causing disruption of nerve conduction, resulting in symptoms-is stopped. This allows healing and repair. MS can be reversed, a respite not offered by conventional means," says Ann Sawyer, psychotherapist and co-author of The MS Recovery Diet (Avery/PenguinGroup USA).

MS is a chronic, degenerative disease of the central nervous system with symptoms ranging from minor annoyances to full disability. The diet is based on stopping the activation of the immune cells by not eating those foods which trigger the disease process.

The five usual triggers-wheat and grains containing gluten, dairy, eggs, legumes and yeast-are key to healing. Saturated fats and sugars are postulated to also play a role in breaching the blood-brain barrier. As each person identifies and refines the diet to fit his or her unique disease profile, recovery begins. Healing is then aided by eating foods that help to repair and rebuild.

"I suffered for over 39 years with MS, eventually spending my days in bed, too weak to even sit up in a wheelchair. Conventional science and pharmaceutical treatments never helped me recover from my symptoms," stated Judi Bachrach, movement educator, counselor, and co-author of The MS Recovery Diet. "By following the diet, and listening to my body, I am out of bed and able to devote myself to promoting this treatment, hoping to help others the way it has helped me."

"Judi and I are not the founders of this method. Many early pioneers like Dr. Roy Swank and Roger MacDougall discovered the keys to beating MS holistically. Drawing from fifty years of accumulated knowledge and experience, this diet is highly effective. As grateful recipients, we are following their legacy by spreading the word," Ann Sawyer explains.
