Woman heals from multiple sclerosis (MS) on a carnivore diet

Understanding Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

This woman had suffered from Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for 25 years, and found significant relief from her symptoms after following the Carnivore Diet. Five years ago, her disease turned progressive and she knew she needed to find a way to heal.


The Mayo Clinic defines Multiple Sclerosis (MS) as a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). The immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body. Eventually, the disease can cause permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves.


How the Carnivore Diet Helps Autoimmune Conditions

While there is currently no cure for MS, it is believed that the Carnivore Diet can help with many autoimmune conditions by eliminating foods that irritate the gut and instead focusing on nutrient-dense foods that don’t cause inflammation in our bodies.


Beginning on a diet protocol used to treat Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), she ate a ketogenic diet with a 2:1 fat to protein ratio, plus organ meats. She followed this way of eating for 18 months. While the diet change did not have a noticeable effect on her MS symptoms, she started to feel better overall.


Discovering the Benefits of the Carnivore Diet

She began the Carnivore Diet and within three months she was experiencing deeper, more restful sleep and regained her tolerance to heat. “I had energy throughout the day and I was able to sunbathe once again.”


Her mobility also greatly improved while on the Carnivore Diet. She shares, “My feet no longer roll out and I was able to manage a daily walk of one to two miles using walking sticks. I can climb the stairs again with only one hand on the railing. Before I had to haul myself up. I feel really great!”


Halted Progression of MS with the Carnivore Diet

While she hasn’t noticed significant changes to her weight yet (and is only seven pounds from her goal) she says, “I believe the progression of my MS has been halted with this diet.”


A growing number of people who suffer from autoimmune disorder have found relief from their symptoms by following a high-fat diet of primarily meat. Cutting out plants, grains, and sugars is believed to lower the body’s inflammatory response, which plays a significant role in many autoimmune and other diseases.


A High-Fat Diet to Mitigate the Impact of MS

While the presence and intensity of MS symptoms can vary throughout a patient’s life, making certain changes to diet and lifestyle can help mitigate the impact on their life. Although many patients follow a treatment protocol that includes prescribed medication and treatments like monoclonal antibodies, many have also had success putting their disease into remission by following the Carnivore Diet.
