Dairy Products

Wow this is amazing stuff, I am worried about taking steroids because of the side effects (before the DX I wouldn’t even take paracetamol) so you have inspired me to look further into alternatives.

I am trying to continue to work although there is a lot of things that I am unable to do but just being in an exercise environment is like therapy for me, I sometimes get a little frustrated watching everyone juumping about but I do what I can and at least I feel I am doing something, as this is still very new for me (DX 14/2) some days I do feel like throwing the towel in so I come on here and someone like you inspires me to keep at it

I can’t thank you enough

Keep at it and keep posting

Thank you and have a good day x

Hello everyone,

Dairy products are very benifical for human health to keep heathy…

I remember reading once… years ago… that there had been a survey in a town in Finland (not sure) to count how many nesting pairs of storks there were in the town. It turned out to be the exactly the same number as human babies born that spring… so you could conclude that there was a link between storks and babies…which of course is nonsense.

I don’t think I’ll be giving up dairy any time soon,

I have am convinced that ms is the result of some mineral or vitamin deficiency or a reaction as described. Actually maybe it is due to many reasons with the same result which is why the cure is proving so elusive for experts to find.

All my ms life I have eaten gluten free, I take no milk or cream in anything and I have a concoction of vitamins. However, as I polish my halo, it is true that I drink like a fish which may be my weakness.

I agree with Karen I think milk causing ms is a crazy idea! Before getting ill I didn’t really have any dairy products as didn’t really eat eggs and had no milk. When I first got ill they carried out numerous tests - one of the things that came out from the test that I was severely deficient in vitamin d (think my level was about 17 after a weeks holiday in the sun in 32 degree heat) and the other was that I had liver problems and a vitamin b12 deficiency. I was started on vitamin b12 injections and was told to include diary into my diet each day - since then my vitamin b12 levels are good and my liver function is all normal now. What did I change about my diet - I started having milk- so I can’t agree with the method that milk causes ms otherwise the statistics of ms sufferers would be higher

Interesting theory though there seems to be heaps of evidence backing this up. It seems a bit like Celiac Disease where some people’s immune systems think that the gluten is an invader and starts attacking healthy tissues causing a host of problems, mainly in the gut, but does often extent to the central nervous system. They’re starting to go mad for western takeaways such as McDonalds in Asian countries now and diabetes is on the rise there so I wonder if MS will be too?

Just too add a twist to this some people who are diagnosed with MS actually have Lyme disease caused by bacteria transmitted from biting insects like tick or mosquitoes. It can completely mimic MS and dairy wont really have much affect on that.

I found a couple of other links looking at the milk connection.
