Hi - as well as ms I have a type of arthritis called ankylosing spondylitis. Because of the ankylosing I'm quite sensitive to carbs/ sugar. I'm finding it difficult to figure out a diet that will work for me, especially because I'm also cooking for my two kids as well. Once you, ve ruled out meat, dairy, eggs, pasta, rice etc you're not left with much. Any tips on books/ websites etc that might help?
Professor Jelinek is often asked whether the OMS approach is beneficial for other auto immune inflammatory diseases, of which Ankylosing Spondylitis is one. He has examined the literature on several other autoimmune diseases along the way, and has concluded the whole OMS plan applies (which the exception of Lupus where sun exposure is an issue for some Lupus sufferers), and should be just as effective.
The OMS plan is for whole grains, whole foods rather than processed and refined foods. You may find that brown rice, wholemeal pasta and flour, raw sugar or honey are better for you in many ways. Essential fatty acids (Omega 3) are very important for both MS and other auto immune inflammatory diseases. The OMS plan is not low fat (quite the opposite), just low saturated fat. This is an important distinction.
