Those of us who have been successful when following a lifestyle modification program for multiple sclerosis (MS) believe in our bones that healthy living effectively treats MS. After all, there does not seem to be any other way to explain going ten, twelve and even more years without a relapse once we start living ultra healthy. The recent study published by Professor George Jelinek, M.D., provides more scientific support for our views.
Moreover, the results of Jelinek’s new study are simply consistent with a plethora of research being published everyday by researchers all over the world. Increasingly it is apparent that nothing beats ultra healthy living in preventing disease–whether it be cardiovascular, liver, or neurological disease. It is interesting indeed that the very diet that helps treat MS helps prevent and treat heart and vascular disease as well as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
All and all, many studies are showing the healthiest diet includes whole plant foods and fish–an abundance of fruits and vegetables, low glycemic foods, small oily fish (such as sardines and salmon), nuts, legumes and whole grains.
At the same time, an ultra healthy diet excludes red and organ meats, large fish, and sweets. Jelinek’s proposed diet reflects these research findings to a 't'. In summary, Jelinek’s OMS approach contributes not only to neurological health but also to all around good health and vitality.
Many of the suggested diets for those with MS have much in common – all suggest eating generous amounts of vegetables, for example. Those that are suggesting eating red meat while avoiding legumes are likely, however, to lead to problems.
Even if eating red meats worked for MS, early death from heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease becomes more likely when eating these foods. All in all, Jelinek’s programs makes sense! Bravo! As usual, we never have enough research.
Let’s all push for this whenever we can. A side benefit of an ultra healthy living program is that it will even help with the abs. While our friends may get more rotund, we all soon become leaner than average. What’s not to like? Looking good has always been the fun part of adopting the OMS program.
