Plant-Based Diet and MS Relief

A new study identifies a plant-based diet as a possible treatment for multiple sclerosis symptoms.

According to a new study led by Australian medical expert and author George Jelinek, a plant-based diet may contribute to relieving symptoms of multiple sclerosis. In a 10-year study, Jelinek and his team found that a combination of a plant-based diet, exercise, exposure to sunlight, and stress-reduction techniques improved multiple-sclerosis patients’ quality of life by up to 20 percent. For the next stage of research, the team will attempt to determine which of these lifestyle factors—or combination thereof—ultimately makes the biggest difference. Jelinek views his findings as a potential breakthrough in MS research. “It’s remarkable to us that we had such a significant improvement for people when the usual course should be progressive deterioration,” he says.
