Hi, My name is Polly and I was recently diagnosed with MS. I'm 54, but think I have probably had it for about 8 years. So far no disability and, I don't think I have a very aggressive case, but time will tell. I started Dr. Swank's diet as soon as I was diagnosed. In his diet he does allow non-fat yogurt. I have been using this daily. Is this a big issue? I see on your site you recommend no dairy at all?
Listen to Professor Jelineks podcast and read the comments too, which explain why even a tiny amount is harmful.
Unlike saturated fat, where the quantity seems very important, for cowâ€™s milk we are talking about an immune reaction. The immune system recognises and reacts to the tiniest amount of a particular target protein. Look at someone with a peanut allergy for example. The tiniest amount in their food and they have a major reaction. So for cowâ€™s milk, it is best to avoid it entirely.
