In 2012, a book was released that changed the conversation for easing the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. The book was titled, The Raw Cure: Healing Beyond Medicine, written by Jesse J. Jacoby. (also see The History of the Raw Foods Movement) His research on the using the Raw Foods Diet For Easing Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms has been gaining traction. However, the link between better eating habits & MS manageability has been researched for years before the book was published.
Using Raw Foods Diet For Easing Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the body’s Central Nervous System. As noted by the National MS Society, “it is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, also, between the brain and body.” The most troubling thing about MS is that we still don’t have a clear picture of what causes it. One of the main underlying issues is thought to be the destruction by one’s own immune system. Leading to a clear need for proper nutrition.” A quote from Dr. L Roy Swank.
The leading charge for focus on nutrition in MS patients was lead by Dr. L Roy Swank. In 1950, Dr. Swank did extensive research into the correlation between low saturated fat dieting and controlling MS symptoms. This research is a foundation to our understanding of diet and MS. Still widely recommended in the MS medical community to this day. There is no doubt that most of the patients he treated during the 50’s are still alive and functioning today. This lends serious weight to Swank’s findings.
The research and the focus on a raw foods diet brought the Walk Ms charity to Wholesale Nuts And Dried Fruit. They contacted us and we jumped right in for a donation of 100 pounds to reach donors, scientists, patients, & their families. We brought 50 pounds of walnuts, and 50 pounds of raisins to the Walk MS office, a Multiple Sclerosis charity office. From here on, you can expect to see more nuts and fruits at MS Runs.
