Taking control of MS
Jelinek saw in Swank’s diet a huge advantage over other tried therapies for MS. He was drawn in by its active approach that gave those with MS control over their illness through major lifestyle changes.
The power of such control, also referred to as self-determination, may significantly affect immune function and the mental state of individuals. This freedom to live life as one chooses, puts the person in a position of power.
Not surprisingly, a modified version of Swank’s diet, which took into consideration more recent data on dietary fats, forms the highlight of the Overcoming MS program.
Dr. Jelinek’s recipes include a variety of tasty-sounding options and can be accessed on his website.
