I now recommend the Paleo Mom, Sarah Ballantyne’s new book The Paleo Approach as the #1 way to learn about using diet and lifestyle to control your MS or an autoimmune disease as well as The Perfect Health Diet by Paul Jaminet.

This web site is where I put all the links, books, articles and blogs I used to learn about the autoimmune protocol of the paleo diet. The autoimmune protocol of the paleo diet relieved my Multiple Sclerosis symptoms so well, I don’t feel like I have Multiple Sclerosis anymore. I read the book The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf and the book The MS Recovery Diet by Ann Sawyer and Judi Bachrach, I took their advice and my MS symptoms went away. My MRI showed no progression and 0 brain atrophy after being on the diet for 4 months. I can’t tell you what I eat because I do not give nutritional advice, I have zero credentials! The books recommended on this page are very clear about what to eat and what not to eat. But you don’t have to buy the books or read them (though you are missing out if you don’t read them because they are interesting). If you are internet savvy you can find all the info for free. In addition to eating well, I also sleep well and manage my stress. According to the books I have read and my own experience, these methods work for relieving all autoimmune issues, not just Multiple Sclerosis. This website will point you in the right direction to get started on your recovery. Check out the Knowledge Center for book recommendations and links, the Recipe section for some core recipes that helped get me through my initial elimination period and my blogs for thoughts and insights into the whole thing. There’s not a lot to learn or a lot to learn depending how bio-chemist researcher you want to get. I have been on this diet and living this lifestyle for over 3 years and I have not experienced a relapse or any MS activity or symptoms at all in that time. Please also read everything you can find from Dr. Terry Wahls who reversed her secondary progressive MS with her own protocol of the paleo diet.
Delicious kale and bacon
Eating fat with greens is essential for nutrient absorption of the fat soluble vitamins contained in the greens. This recipe is perfect for that.
Autoimmune Panel Q&A
I got Paul Jaminet author of The Perfect Health Diet, Sarah Ballantyne author of The Paleo Approach and Terry Wahls author of Minding My Mitochondria together to discuss some common issues in the world of using diet and lifestyle to control autoimmune and neurodegenerative disease, specifically Multiple Sclerosis. It turned out to be an hour and forty minutes of fantastic discussion! And I am not just saying that because I organized it!
