This is a small study but it confirms the fantastic impact of diet on RRMS and the microbiome. My apologies if it's been posted already.

Italian study comparing Western Diet to a High Veg/Low Protein diet. Yes, they meant to say low animal protein. It's not as well-designed as the OMS lifestyle provides, but it's a start. It seems closer to Swank's diet after a year.

Be well, everyone!

"Clinical parameters were evaluated during the 12 months follow-up period as well as at the end of the protocol; interesting differences emerged. Thus, whereas the EDSS score improved in the HV/LP diet patients, this parameter declined in WD patients, with a significant difference being observed between the two groups (p = 0.001). Notably, the overall number of disease relapses during the 12 months follow-up period was unmodified in the HV/LP diet patients, but increased significantly in the WD patients (vs. enrollment p = 0.04). Clinical relapses were observed during the 12 months follow-up period in 9/10 WD patients but only in 3/10 of the HV/LP diet patients (p = 0.0005); the difference between the two groups in relapse rate at the 12 months follow-up visit was statistically significant (p = 0.03)."
