Everything You Need To Know About The 'Paleolithic Diet' And How It Can Beat Multiple Sclerosis: Is It The Final Answer?
As we do not fully understand the nature of Multiple Sclerosis and what might have really caused its emergence, some experts believe that the said disease is actually a number of different yet related diseases. The definite cure for Multiple Sclerosis is yet to be officially considered, however, a new study has shown that a modified Paleolithic diet have actually reduced the fatigue of patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) and has reportedly improved the quality of life. The researchers of the study claims that the diet may potentially reduce inflammation by increasing vitamin K levels.
The 'Paleolithic Diet' And How It Can Beat Multiple Sclerosis
According to reports revealed by Multiple Sclerosis News Today, the study has been published in the journal Degenerative Neurological and Neuromuscular Disease. In the study, the authors have explained that as the trial had lasted for three months, eight of the 17 RRMS patients that were allegedly involved in the randomized control trial were put on the Paleolithic diet, which is known to have the ability to eliminate gluten and dairy products. Nine were noted for being part of the control group, eating as before. Experts have been found to have measured fatigue associated with patients' daily activities on the Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS), which is a widely used nine-item scale. Consequently, FSS scores in the Paleolithic-diet group turned out to have decreased by 1.4 points, while increasing 0.2 points in the controls.
Furthermore, as Everyday Health reports it, the paleo diet allegedly consists of different versions but one thing is notable in every version, that the diet meal plan is made up of foods that were available to humans during the Paleolithic era, such as lean meats and fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, and certain types of oils and fats. In one of her statements, Dr. Terry Wahls, who was diagnosed with MS in 2000 and later had to rely on a wheelchair to get around has claimed that she is a living testament to this diet. She reveals that after changing her diet and making some other lifestyle changes, she now has the ability of jogging on a treadmill. While not everyone believes that Paleo diet is the appropriate diet for people with MS, Rosalind Kalb, PhD, vice president of the NMSS's professional resource center and coauthor of Multiple Sclerosis for Dummies, says that there's always no harm in trying since this would be the best case for the said diet.
