Recently my husband has become interested in growing our own food. He has sent away for heirloom seeds and has planted lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, squash, eggplant, and herbs in pots and trays that festoon our front walkway and courtyard.
Part of his “research” online has uncovered the story about a doctor (it is Dr. Wahls)
who changed the way she was eating (“learned how to properly fuel her body… at the subcellular level”) and recovered a lot of her capabilities (“used diet to cure her MS and get out of her wheelchair”) after being diagnosed with probable multiple sclerosis.
As a reminder, there is no way to conclusively diagnose the disease. The cause is still not known, so there is no way to test for it, and no way to know how bad it is going to get, or if it will spontaneously go into remission. These kind of stories *should be taken with a grain of salt.
The last diet experiment I did was several years ago. I finally ended it after a little more than a year, not happy enough about the small changes to continue.
Nevertheless, I am yet again excited to try this latest food “cure”. Keep you posted.
