While I do not have MS, I do have three autoimmune disorders. My Mother in Law did have MS and was on copaxane. Since I have celiac disease, I had to change my diet. Gluten free is the only known treatment for celiac disease. It stops flare ups and heals the small intestine (repeat intestinal biopsies revealed a healed small intestine for me). I began researching to adjust my diet further to help with my other autoimmune disorders and found diets that have helped those with MS. Just healthy food filled with fruit and veggies, meats and fish, etc. The MS support groups emphasize drugs for a cure, but food might be the solution. The problem is there is little funding to research food.
This was a movie on Netflicks and there is a website. Here is the movie trailer:
Diet, in conjunction with meds may help! I know that diet has helped my autoimmune disorders. Now, I no longer have nodules or an enlarged thyroid. That went away when I began a diet that avoided grains and processed foods. Sure I have Hashimoto’s but it appears to be in remission along with my celiac disease. I wish I had know about diet before my MIL passed. Keep advocating for yourself. Hugs!
