What do you think life would be like if we all could give up our MS Treatments (Tecfidera, Copaxone, Aubagio, Betaseron, Gilenya, Limtrada, etc… ) and utilized the power of healthy
food to care for our bodies?
What if we focused on eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, fish and perhaps lean meats?
When I was still teaching I followed a macrobiotic diet (veggies, fruit, beans, legumes, egg whites, nuts–not tropical choices, seeds, whole grains). The ultimate success was to avoid animal or for me at least minimize 🥩 🧀 animal–dairy was my weakness!!!! (I am a 🍦🍨 ice cream 🍦 🍨 lover!!!!)
I cross trained at least 15 miles a week then, I had students to support in 4 different elementary buildings, I was a mom, wife, house cleaner, laundry doer, homework helper, soccer mom, band supporter, gift shopper, holiday preparer, etc…, etc…, etc… Back then I walked with a smooth effortless gait at a normal pace, my bladder and pelvic floor were on good behavior, my memory was stronger!!
If I went back to this style of eating and did it thoughtfully (I also have stomach issues) could I gain back some of my mobility or short term memory loss??
Curious to hear about diets that work for other MS’ers.
And what have your experiences been like when/if you stopped treatments??
