Please know that I really, really enjoy junk food. I don’t really discriminate, either; sugar, chocolate (you may think it’s the same as sugar but it simply must be in it’s own category), salt, fat, alcohol… I think that if it’s bad for us I just may be someone who enjoys it. With that said I have decided to start adding food into my diet that supports optimum health. I will be using a number of sources and providing links for things that can be found on line to back up my thinking. I AM NOT A SCIENTIST, PHYSICIAN, DIETITIAN, NUTRITIONIST OR ANY OTHER TRAINED OR LICENSED ANYTHING! I am simply someone with the disease of Multiple Sclerosis who wishes to find the best way to eat to maintain or improve their health.
To begin this journey I am doing what I can to follow the direction of Dr. Terry Wahls who has done much reading on how nutrients affect the myelin sheath and has started doing research on the matter beyond the reversal of her own symptoms. I will also be using the book by Dr. Peter D’Adamo, “Eat Right For Your Type.” I have found it quite beneficial when followed, in the past, both by myself and my friends. I’ll be making notes as I go along as to how each one fits into the foods that are best for my health.
The only weighing or measuring I will be doing is during recipe preparation and ensuring that I’ve had a minimum amount of certain nutrients or for the benefit of the reader.
I hope that you enjoy reading about my journey but feel free to share you’re thoughts and ideas, contradict me and share links to facts as you understand them. Here we go!
