    I was diagnosed on the 18th July and have been on the Wahls protocol since the 19th. The incident that led to my diagnosis was an MS 'attack' which felt similar to a stroke - the left side of my body...

    I've come on this forum a few times now, making noises about how I drink too much coffee and should really reduce it, and am surprised that I haven't had the same response, ie, 'well just stop doing...

    I would recommend it. It's the best I've felt on any version of paleo eating I've tried so far.

    The Wahls diet eliminates eggs because this is one of her allergies, but I followed suit as I...

    Its a shame because we need to talk about coffee. It's not suitable for a lot of people who come to paleo for health reasons. A lot of the bulletproof adherents themselves don't drink more than one a...

    As an alternative to coffee I can also recommend 100% cacao (not cocoa - cacao) which comes in a hard block, it looks like chocolate but is the prior ingredient before any sugar or fats are added. It...

    Coffee is definitely one to be careful with if you have any anxiety or depression. One a day might be ok but more than that and you may start to get issues with it. I developed a real taste for...

    Thanks Tomi, I strongly believe in what I'm doing, I already assumed I had some sort of autoimmune issues prior to this diagnosis, so all it's done is increased my desire to do this extremely well. I...

    It seems that, aside from the Wahls protocol, the best results I get re energy and feeling good are coming from fasting. But there has to be a balance - I'm still getting to grips with it really.

    There is no bad time to start eating the right food.

    Just to share this, when I first went primal I did it in weekly stages. Week one all I did was give up sugar. Week 2 it was bread, week three...

    Thanks for your support everyone. Its a bit of a blow but I only found out by accident and my feeling is that I've probably already delayed the onset with the last 2 years efforts in nutrition.

    Thanks, I've reached the conclusion that the Wahls type diet is the most suitable for me, MS or no MS, therefore its just about maximizing health from diet. None of my experiments with dairy have...
