unfortunately a friend of mine was just diagnosed with multiple sclerosos. i have been angered with the amount of pills which the doctor has pushed upon her for the rest of her life. i was reading about nutrition and environment having the largest contribution to this disease. i was wondering what elements of paleo would assist my friend.

i had already suggested switching from animal fats and grains to olive oil, nuts, and fish. however, i have also found out that MS patients shouldnt consume fish, maybe due to its chemical properties. i shall let the nutrition gurus at crossfit assist me please, because i hate the evasive western medicine practices regarding these unknown diseases. any input would be great and thanx.

Look at There are several fantastic links there. Dont make the mistake of lumping all animal fats into the "bad" category. All one needs to do to make beef as healthy as salmon (fresh slamon theat is...the farmed stuff is worthless) is grass feed is...and that is it! A key here is mitigating inflamatory responses( large amounts of EPA and DHA and making sure any offending items like grains, legumes, and dairy are removed. If this person is NOT sleeping 9hrs a night in a dark room and is under constant stress ( are they a care taker? Co-dependant?)...well, the stress has gota go and the sleep must happen. Autoimmune diseases are incredibly complex. Rarely is there only one factor. If your friend is serious about this it will require major lifestyle is a rare person who will do this IMO...that is why I left medical school!
I hope this helps...keep the questions comming
