The future of the Swank Diet
In general, more research is needed to adequately determine whether the Swank Diet is helpful in reducing MS flares and symptoms. To date very few studies have been done, and the ones that have been completed have lacked key components that make scientific studies reliable. This includes having a larger sample size, strict inclusion criteria, and a control group. Praise for the Swank Diet that you might find online is at www.swankmsdiet.org which is the website for the diet itself, which of course makes it a biased source. Additionally, there are other studies that have examined how different diets may improve MS symptoms. Some of these have shown that there is a genetic relationship between MS and Celiac Disease. Others examine the role of salt, fish oil, and vitamin D in MS. However the medical community has not yet come out and stated that any specific diet is best for people with MS.
