Tessa Buckleyabout this book: There is increasing evidence that changing one's diet can improve the health and well-being of those with multiple sclerosis (MS). The Multiple Sclerosis Diet Book explains the role that a healthy eating diet may play in MS, and also includes information about two new diets: Professor George Jelinek's Overcoming MS diet and Dr Terry Wahls' version of the Paleo diet. This new edition of the original book has been revised to cover the most up-to-date research into the importance of nutrients such as vitamin D and essential fatty acids, and the effects common substances such as salt and sugar may have on people with MS.
There is a wealth of information on topics such as food intolerance and food supplements, as well as practical advice on how to make food preparation and cooking easier if you are disabled, and how to deal with food-related problems such as difficulty with swallowing. There are eating plans for each of the diets featured, and a large recipe section full of simple but delicious recipes. Also included are some case studies of people with MS who have successfully improved their health by changing their diets.
Tessa Buckley, who was diagnosed with MS thirty years ago, before disease-modifying drugs were available, explains how diet, exercise and reducing the stress in her life enabled her to stabilise her symptoms and start a new career as a writer. For anyone with MS, finding the right diet – although it cannot cure you – can increase wellbeing, help protect you against other serious illnesses, and often leads to a reduction in symptoms and in the medication required to treat them.
