eating paleo for multiple sclerosis

Hey everyone, I was recently diagnosed with MS and i was just wondering if there was anyone out there who has seen any possitive results by following the paleo way of eating. I recently came across a video by Dr. Loren Cordain on youtube on this and I am thinking of giving it a go. I have been eating about 80% paleo for the last 3 months but I think I need to step it up a bit and get closer to 100 % as my symptoms are starting to act up. I would love to hear about other peoples experiences with this and how long it took before they noticed any changes.
Thanks in advance.

Another unconventional approach to MS considers it to be at least partly caused by the bacteria c. pneumonia. See cpnhelp.org for details.

im very sorry to hear about your diagnosis. ill never forget how scary that first year was. someone told me when i was first dx that someday soon i would thank MS and appreciate its gifts and i thought that was total insanity, but i did get there. i wouldnt say its one of the best things thats ever happened to me (!), but i have learned so much about myself that i wouldnt trade fo the world. you'll be ok- that much i can promise!

jenna, i have MS, too (dx in 2008) and have remained in remission and not on disease modifying drug therapy (though i was taking copaxone until september 2010). after my next MRI, if there has been disease progress, then ill try going on avonex. paleo has been amazing though and im not only asymptomatic, but some of the damage has repaired itself as of my last MRI. im not very strict (im about 90% compliant, and do eat dairy), but i agree that if you are having sx or any flares or ANY disease activity at all, that going very strict on dr. cordains autoimmune protocol might be helpful for a period of time. im talking 6 months to a year, minimum. i would be more than happy to message with you off the boards about it. im also a subject in dr. cordains latest study on paleo and autoimmunity. the study is closed now, but i would be happy to pass on some of the initial findings as they become available. if you want to email, im at "being DOT amanda AT gmail". oh! and i hope you have a neurologist you trust. that really makes all the difference.

Yes! I have a web site and FB page about it, check it out at www.facebook.com/nutrisclerosis and www.nutrisclerosis.com (the web site will be live this month) There are a few people on there who post about it and have had great success. It has changed my life, I consider my MS gone. I am trying to make a web site for people to exchange and compare information and methods. There are a lot of restrictions outside of paleo. I call it the AIP auto immune protocol. Also go to a site called paleo autoimmune recipes (google that) it is a blog of a lady who is super smart and super hardcore aboutt he whole thing. She was in a Cordain study.

I was diagnosed with RRMS in May 2009. I have been Primal since end of summer/fall 2009 and more strictly Paleoish (no dairy) for the past 2+ months. I occasionally eat potatoes but have eliminated tomatoes and peppers (with the exception of some hot sauce) from my diet. I have also been on DMDs since summer 2009 so this kinds of messes up the "experiment" that is my life on Paleo. In spite of this, I think the diet has definitely helped, especially the elimination of dairy (my eyes became noticeably less 'tired' looking to my wife and friends and felt less tired to me).

It is worth checking out whether amalgam (mercury) fillings play any part in your MS. I don't think this is the one answer to the problems of everyone with MS, but it might be for some. Have a look at this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-qhxa-3Wbw If you do decide to remove amalgam fillings, make sure you do it correctly, with a holistic dentist. The removal itself, done incorrectly, will give you a lot of mercury.
