Two years ago, at age 36, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I was devastated. I sought out the help of a nutritionist, who, before she even met me, told me that I should probably go gluten free. If she had not said this to me, I am convinced that I would, by now, have suffered multiple relapses.

I immediately quit eating gluten. I noticed that I had more energy, I was thinking more clearly. My digestive system seemed to work, causing me to realize that, in fact, I could not remember a day of my life that it DID work well. I could think….and I realized that I never remembered a day when I didn’t feel foggy and tired. I lost 27 pounds in about 6 weeks…and the weight has NEVER crept back up on me. I had been so sick for the entire 36 years of my life that I did not know what “wellness” felt like until I cut gluten out of my diet. Still, I had lingering doubts: would this be enough to help me achieve brain health?

Then I found Grain Brain, and after that I found Brain Maker.  The principles taught in these books have changed my life. Going gluten-free was an immediate fix for me, I felt better very quickly. The concepts from Brain Maker came more gradually. I started eating fermented foods.  I learned that, if I had problems with gluten, I should probably be dairy-free, too.  I cut dairy out of my diet.  I eat as many vegetables as I can squeeze into a day.  I learned that my kitchen was the place where I was going to get well…and not in a neurologist’s office.  Food truly has become my medicine.  Did I mention that I am not at all affected by my MS to date?

I started eating fermented foods. I learned that, if I had problems with gluten, I should probably be dairy-free, too, so I cut dairy out of my diet. I eat as many vegetables as I could squeeze into a day.  I learned that my kitchen was the place where I was going to get well, and not in a neurologist’s office. Food truly had become my medicine. It should thus come as no surprise for me to mention that I am not at all affected by my MS (to date).
