Diagnosed in 2013, still good in 2017. Put it down to my lifestyle (and not taking DMDs). I’m always on the search to find ways to slow down any progression with the goal of being in long term remission. My diet is mainly paleo - I’m not strict but I am mindful what I eat. I am very positive, I also meditate and try to do yoga every day, at home - using a brilliant app (called Yoga Studio), and I also practice intermittent fasting.
I recently purchased “The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life” book. I haven’t made any of the recipes yet but I do eat a mixture of raw, organic, steamed veg, fruit, a little meat, mainly fish diet, no sugar. I must say that going through my journey I’ve learned a lot, e.g. that I should eat every 4 hrs or my gait/walk is affected - I suffer from lethargy. It really makes a BIG difference. Within minutes of eating a meal is the difference between a strong walk and a floppy walk
By changing diet and lifestyle Dr Wahls went from wheelchair to walking and she has shared her findings in her book. Here is a YouTube link to her story:
“Funny” thing is, I have found that, many doctors, when they themselves have an issue they don’t practice what they preach to their patients! They look for alternatives.
I was wondering if others have changed their lifestyle, etc and it’s helped their symptoms? Please share…
