Vitamin D, Multiple Sclerosis, and Walk MS promo video

MidChix, a wonderful new online community of women between 40 and 60, has just posted one of my articles on Vitamin D and its role in Multiple Sclerosis.

You might already know that vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and teeth, but did you realize that it plays a role in maintaining a healthy immune system, too?

A connection between Multiple Sclerosis and vitamin D deficiency has been studied for decades. Low blood levels of vitamin D are common among the MS population, and according to recent reports, as many as 80 percent of people with MS don’t get enough of it in their diets.  In fact, current research findings suggest that vitamin D may positively influence the immune systems of patients with MS…

It’s perfect timing for this article as May is the month for many of the annual Walk MS events to raise funds and awareness for multiple sclerosis. This year, the Colorado Chapter of the National MS Society has invited me to host the “Land of Nutrition” at the MS Walks in Denver (May 1), Colorado Springs (May 8), and Boulder (May 15).

As a nutrition expert living with multiple sclerosis, I believe that what you eat plays a role in how you feel, and that your diet affects your health. Changing the course of your health and, at the very least, the severity of your symptoms may be as simple as changing your menu.

Hear me talk more about the National MS Society’s Colorado Walk MS events!

The forecast for the Denver Walk this Saturday (May 1st, 2010) may call for snow (!) so dress warmly and enjoy the coffee and hot chocolate offered around City Park for participants. Take refuge under the Wellness Tent with me, pick up or order an autographed cookbook, and join the discussion on healthy eating!

Hope to see you there!

  1. When directly compared, the MRT blood test correlated with muscle testing performed by three different experienced professionals at different times and locations.

    Seriously, this is a new test that looks at the blood in ways that the other “allergy” tests do not. It can detect sensitivities more than 94% of the time.

  2. That’s a great suggestion. If I had my way no one would eat any of those things – add in sugar and that pretty much covers the evil foods lol. Those blood tests don’t always show up a sensitivity which exists, however. Muscle testing from a knowledgeable and experienced professional is a necessity.

  3. I totally agree that MS may be caused by food sensitivities, but while some may be sensitive to wheat and dairy, everyone is different and the next person may be sensitive to corn and soy instead or as well.

    That’s why I advocate identifying the specific foods or chemical additives with a mediator response blood test rather than throwing random darts at foods and hoping to find the right ones.

    Click on “Is Your Food Making You Sick” at the top right of this page to see what I’m talking about.

  4. This is great to post this info, but why not include the fact that a gluten/casein-free diet will in most cases cure MS?
