Preventive Nutrition: Food and MS

Recently Kehres Health was featured on healthcentral.com in the article Food and MS: Nutritional Food Sources by Vicki Bridges.

Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1989 and a long time Amigo owner, Vicki shares her experiences and knowledge as a regular contributor to healthcentral.com and through her blog Down the MS Path.

In her recent article, Vicki says “For MSers, good nutrition does more than make us feel good. Some nutritional elements seem to affect the number or intensity of relapses, so it seems the way we eat can change the course of our disease. That being said, many people do not follow a nutritious diet, maybe because it sounds complicated or difficult. It doesn't have to be.”

The article includes health tips about gluten-free diets, magnesium, vitamin D and fish oil, as well as sugar.

"In excess, sugar is poison to our body and creates unwanted stress on our hormones and nervous system,” Dr. Dan Kehres said. “The majority of grains convert into sugar as soon as they are digested, so grains can be just as harmful to our bodies as sugar. When reading nutrition labels, basically anything that ends in the letters '–ose' is going to be a sugar, including fructose, sucrose, glucose, etc."
