How I Cured My Multiple Sclerosis (MS) with Diet and How You Can Too. Advice From a Naturopath


Ann Boroch, CNC, Naturopath, was once a sugar addict. She suffered from a candida overgrowth and various infections throughout her life until she developed the autoimmune condition multiple sclerosis. Instead of following the path of traditional medicine, she chose to use natural remedies to cure multiple sclerosis and to heal herself. It was a long road to travel, but she now has her multiple sclerosis under control. She is also a successful naturopath, helping others heal their bodies through the food, supplementation and stress-relieving techniques that saved her own life. Read on to learn how you do might also be able to cure your multiple sclerosis (MS), autoimmune condition, or any other chronic illness naturally.

At age 24, my life came to a screeching halt.

As I sat in a restaurant eating with a friend, I lost the ability to breathe, swallow and move for several seconds. And then my body started to spasm uncontrollably. What looked like a seizure was actually an immune response attack.

After extensive medical testing, there was good news and bad news. The good news? I didn’t have cancer. The bad news? I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), an autoimmune condition. The prognosis was not good. I was told to prepare for chemotherapy and a wheelchair.

And while I knew nothing about MS, I did know that there had to be a better way to cope than with drug therapy as a cure for multiple sclerosis. Finally, through major changes in my diet and lifestyle, I triumphed and got my health under control. I have been symptom-free from multiple sclerosis for 23 years. And believe me, I’m counting!

Through my journey, I realized the power within my own body to heal itself, and knew I could help others. I became a naturopath and a nutritionist 19 years ago, and have since helped thousands of clients fight their own battles for wellness and to help cure their chronic health conditions.

How Being a Sugar Addict Led to My Candida and MS

When I look back, my history tells the story of someone who was the poster child for autoimmune disease to erupt. Until the age of 18, I was a sugar addict. I was sick all the time – cold, flus and sinus infections. I easily took over 60 courses of antibiotics throughout my life. I had rotted out almost every tooth from eating sugar by the time I was a teenager, and had a mouthful of silver amalgam fillings.

To make matters worse, I was a type “A” personality and spent a lot of energy trying to please people. In other words, I was under a lot of stress.

At 19, I contracted Epstein-Barr virus (more commonly known as mono). I saw eight different specialists and took more than 20 different drugs, mainly steroids and antibiotics, with no success. Through a miracle, I found Dr. William Crook’s book, The Yeast Connection. I realized I was dealing with candida (yeast) overgrowth, which can be caused by overconsumption of sugar. I followed an anti-candida diet and took an antifungal powder for a year, which helped me heal for the short term.

And while that was a small reprieve from illness, I didn’t realize how important it was to keep the microbiome, or my gut ecology, in balance. I later learned that candida overgrowth can come back more virulently if not kept in check. So several years later, when my stress levels were high and sugar and carbs crept back into my diet, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

How I Reversed Multiple Sclerosis

My four-year tumultuous journey of curing  multiple sclerosis started with getting back on the anti-candida diet. I eliminated dairy, sugar, alcohol, gluten and corn. I also took an antifungal drug for two years, and then switched to an herbal formula. I relied heavily on the book Multiple Sclerosis, by Judy Graham, which gave me direction and guidance about supplementation.

To remove toxins from my body, I had 15 silver amalgam fillings taken out. I went through this without any pain relief to avoid an immune response attack.

I worked on my physical and emotional health, pushing through this near-death illness, and I coped with buried emotional traumas, and even survived a suicide attempt.

The Link Between Candida and Autoimmune Disease

The most-ignored infection in the world is candida overgrowth, which can cause a variety of symptoms, including autoimmune conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS). For the most part, candida, which is comprised of yeast and fungus, can be found both inside and outside the body naturally, and it’s harmless until it starts to multiply. Several factors can cause candida to overgrow including:

  • Antibiotics
  • Steroids
  • Birth control pills
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Chemotherapy/radiation
  • Heavy metals
  • Stress
  • Sugar
  • Alcohol

Among the causes of candida overgrowth, sugar is the biggest offender and will continue to feed yeast and fungus throughout your lifetime. Sugar is in cookies, chocolate, pizza, pasta, pastries, lattes, milk, cheese, wine, beer or bread, or more—all of which turn into sugar rapidly and feed not only yeast, but parasites, viruses and bacteria.

Minor symptoms of candida overgrowth can be gas, bloating, heartburn, fatigue, weight gain, depression, anxiety, sinusitis, constipation and diarrhea. As as you can see from my own history, candida can cause more serious conditions, including autoimmune diseases (such as multiple sclerosis) and cancer.

How To Begin To Heal

You need to remove inflammation and infection from the body. What seems like an insurmountable task can be done slowly and methodically. Keep in mind that baby steps can lead to victory!

  • Maintain an anti-candida diet (Avoid dairy, sugar, alcohol, gluten and corn.)
  • Take an herbal antifungal supplement.
  • Supplement to help detoxify and repair the body
  • Participate in stress management techniques – Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), meditation, journaling or counseling.
  • Ensure you are getting quality sleep.
  • Exercise! Whether it’s yoga, walking or isometrics, be active!
  • Believe in yourself!

Healing an autoimmune condition, such as multiple sclerosis, does not happen overnight. There is no quick cure to multiple sclerosis or any chronic health condition. There is no magic drug, herb or food that will help you get better. It requires making lifestyle changes and sticking with them. But it is completely possible to cure multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune conditions by treating the root causes. Be sure to work with an expert naturopath or functional medicine doctor who can guide you on your journey.  The most important factor is to believe you can heal your body, and then following it up with a program that reduces inflammation and infection.

With time and tenacity, you, too, can be triumphant!

    Roy Swag had excellent results treating his MS patients with a low fat plant based diet.
    There is reams of peer reviewed literature on the matter.

    I have MS I was diagnosed in 2004. I don’t know what sort of MS you had but being told to prepare for chemotherapy is very strange and certainly not something at the present time used for patients with MS except on a trial basis. MS is not a near death illness and is not curable with drugs. You say you knew nothing about MS and unfortunately this still seems to be the case. MS at the present time is being researched by such bodies as the MS Society to try and halt the progression of MS, but this is a lengthy procedure. To suggest you were “cured” by diet therefore seems highly unlikely and I believe you are getting people’s hopes up. Certainly diet plays a role with MS as does exercise, although very limited for a lot of MS patients by the way, so I do wonder whether you were ever diagnosed with MS in the first place. I could go on about your very misleading article but I will initially await your response to the above .

    i stopped eating sugar years ago, clearing symptoms of fibromyalgia from my body after a decade of suffering. now i work for a man with Multiple Sclerosis. hmmm. he’s on verge of big choice. will he give up and die? or will he activate hope and discipline and choose entering next phase striving towards health after 30 years paralyzed?

    I have multiple sclerosis and blind in right eye from car accident plus have three children I have to crawl to get every place I go in my house besides siting on but to slide down stairs. I just want to walk again and I’m not afraid of working out I just don’t know how to get this done?

  5. Kaila H

    How do you know for sure the yest caused MS? I have MS and I was diagnosed last year on January 1st, 2016. I am now 26 years old and taking a disease modifying drug. I want to stop taking it because I am afraid of the side effects and go on a natural diet to cure MS. Everything I’ve researched says the cause of MS is unknown… so I am asking because I am really interested in your story and this journey. I would definitely like more info.

    My 27 year old daughter has been dianosed with MS. Do you know anybody in Israel where we live who can give her guidance on correct diet?

  11. Patrick Rahilly

    What an amazing woman. I agree about diet as I try to keep my AS under control through diet.

  12. Anteshwar

    Thank you for sharing….really informative… I can’t believe that Candide can cause MS or cancer

  13. Steve

    I was first diagnosed with MS in 2010 by a lousy Doctor, I then slowly regained my health through diet, but my stupid sister told me to let my strict regimen go, and to just eat what ever I wanted… was a disaster, within 3 months I was worse than when I started, making it so much harder…I just wanted to commit suicide. I then went to a naturopath, and he told me that he suspected lyme, my blood was shipped to Germany and the results came back, Lyme and co-infections. Another thing that I learned was that MS patients were almost always found to have a lyme infection.

    Hi Addis,

    Both of my books, Healing Multiple Sclerosis (good for anyone with autoimmune disease) or The Candida Cure will educate you on what herbs will eradicate candida overgrowth. Also on my website: (under Products) you can read the ingredients in Candida abX. Common herbal antifungals are oregano oil, pau d’arco, garlic, caprylic acid, grapefruit seed extract, black walnut, olive leaf, etc.


  15. Addis

    U love reading these testimonials. However, not one of the doctors say what herbs they used to rid their candida, parasites and viruses. I wish they shared a bit more than just their testimonials. I know the purpose is to get the information from their books but for someone with multiple autoimmune diseases who hasn’t worked in many years it is difficult to get every single book for every single disease. I appreciate that they share this to give people hopes they may have lost but not knowing the basic info such as which herbs get rid of candida is disheartening. Thank you for sharing, however.
