Marion P. is a 65-year old active married woman. She experienced MS symptoms since the age of 24 but was not diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis until she was 63. A busy, successful business owner with a quick brain, Marion and her husband divide their time between their winter and summer homes.
In March of 2010, Marion noticed that she was experiencing constant MS symptoms of light-headedness, balance and coordination issues, and her gait was off. She felt very fatigued all the time, run down, and depressed.
In July of 2010, Marion joined the Fight MS with Food project and took the MRT blood test to identify her unique food sensitivities. With the results of her personal reactivity to 150 foods and chemicals in hand, we designed a customized meal plan for her to follow out of what we now knew to be her least-reactive foods. She began eating a personalized anti-inflammatory diet that was custom-designed to account for her unique oral tolerance thresholds.
Additionally, Marion collected her urine for 24-hours and submitted it for laboratory analysis. This urinalysis showed Marion had incomplete digestion. She began a customized supplement regimen based on the laboratory results and aimed at helping her to fully digest her foods and assimilate nutrients.
Within three weeks, Marion noticed that the dizziness and wobbliness had abated. Within five weeks she reported that her gait had returned to normal and she no longer had to worry about setting her feet down carefully when she walked. She felt completely clear of MS symptoms.
She reported an incident that happened when she was traveling for business and ate a dinner of food that was off of her diet. Within an hour she had a headache bad enough to send her to bed. By morning, her MS symptoms had reappeared, and she felt dizzy and unstable. She remained faithful to the diet and by the following day she felt fully recovered. That incident convinced her that the this approach was working.
In March of 2011, she reported feeling as if there was a hot, burning spot on the top of her head, an MS symptom. After some probing, she revealed that she had been taking large quantities of aloe vera juice after a conversation with a doctor who believed it could cure MS. When she was reminded that aloe vera is in the same family as onions, to which the MRT showed she was reactive, she ceased taking the aloe vera juice and the hot spots disappeared.
As of June of 2012, two years after changing her diet and changing her life, Marion is continuing to lead an active and busy life while feeling free from MS symptoms.
