The Swank Diet for Multiple Sclerosis

The uncertainty of MS diets

If you go on the internet long enough and you can find a diet for just about any ailment. However, it can be incredibly frustrating to know what to try and what to ignore, especially when you’re dealing with a chronic disease. So how do you sort it all out? Who do you listen to? Unfortunately, with MS, many providers are not entirely sure what works and what doesn’t when it comes to complementary medicine and dieting. Often providers will recommend different treatments. This can be based on provider preference and what they have seen with their individual patients, as well as the lack of definitive research in this area. This can be overwhelming for people as they seek to find lifestyle changes that may improve their symptoms. Here we will look at one diet that claims to be an effective treatment for MS: The Swank Diet.
