I have MS but just lately I have been following a diet that I know lupus people follow & I feel really good?! The diet is no legumes which includes soy, alfalfa, peas, beans, lentils, clover. I am also doing no nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes,capsicum, aubergine).
I have tried this because I have read that people with MS should avoid legumes but could never find why. Its only since I read about
this diet for lupus avoiding all the legumes because they have a sort of amino acid called L canavarine which causes inflammation that I understood. Well, I thought MS is an inflammatory condition so I will give it a try & see if it helps me.
I believe that if it works for me I do it though, of course, I do not know for sure that the diet is what is making me feel better!????!
Have had relapsing/remitting MS since 10 yrs old. Secondary/progressive since 1995. Baclofen pump since 2008.
