I was diagnosed in 1981 while I was still in Ilford, Essex, UK but I have been living in Germany since 1995.
For a long time I hardly had any symptoms, there again, I practically ate the same as my Asian friends and colleagues, i.e. a vegetarian Indian diet.
When I moved to Germany in 1995, I found that the cuisine was completely different and I fell in love with their lovely, incredibly varied wholegrain bread and, I'm ashamed to admit, smoked pork.
Less than three months later, my condition deteriorated drasticlly, to the point when I was unable to walk.
Nine years ago I found Dr. Ashton Embry's Best Bet Diet, which was a revelation to me. I lapped it up and my symptoms gradually disappeared one by one, which means that it wasn't my homesickness or the stress of moving countries but simply the things I ate that made my MS worse.
