Multiple Sclerosis Treatment: How I Cured My MS


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 was able to get her MS under control by developing her own multiple sclerosis treatment which included both collagen and turmeric. She was also a successful naturopath, helping others heal their bodies through the food, supplementation and stress-relieving techniques that she used to prolong her life.

Boroch has since passed away in 2017, but has positively impacted many lives with her holistic health approach. Read on to learn how you 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.

Traditional Multiple Sclerosis Treatment: Something I Wasn’t Prepared For

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!

Multiple Sclerosis Natural Treatment (The Healing Process)

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. I believe in the power of food in helping to heal and cure disease. The newest multiple sclerosis treatment might just be the oldest: naturally.

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! Here are different ways you can incorporate a multiple sclerosis natural treatment into your daily routine:

  • Maintain an anti-candida diet (Avoid dairy, sugar, alcohol, gluten and corn)
  • Take an herbal antifungal supplement.
  • Supplement with turmeric to help reduce inflammation and boost your immunity. Try Superfood Turmeric which contains both antioxidants and adaptogens which can help reduce inflammation and fight pain.
  • Add in collagen peptides to help replenish and repair the body. Collagen peptides also help to reduce stiffness and pain associated with multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune conditions. I’ve even seen collagen help with the brain fog that comes with MS.
  • 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; they will be able to tell you your multiple sclerosis treatment options. 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.

How My Sugar Addiction Led Me to Multiple Sclerosis

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. I knew it was time to do a sugar detox. 

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, consuming too much 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 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. I learned about the benefits of supplementing with anti-inflammatory herbs like turmeric and ginger. 

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.

You Can Also Heal Your Multiple Sclerosis

Autoimmune diseases leave many feeling hopeless, but don’t let that fear overcome you. There are natural, holistic ways you can help your body heal your body, and above is just one multiple sclerosis alternative treatment to try. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with MS, be sure to do your research: look up multiple sclerosis treatment guidelines and see which approach is best for your body. Eating healthy, reducing sugar, supplementing with proper nutrients and keeping your stress in check can do nothing but help you.

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


How can I begin to heal multiple sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune condition. In order to begin healing, you must remove inflammation and function from the body. There are many ways to naturally treat your MS — you should maintain an anti-candida diet that avoids dairy and sugar, supplement with anti-inflammatory foods such as turmeric, and make healthy everyday choices. The key to begin healing or treating a chronic condition is to make healthy lifestyle changes.

What does sugar consumption have to do with multiple sclerosis?

Eating too much sugar on a regular basis increases your chance of having yeast overgrowth, or candida overgrowth. In fact, the over-consumption of sugar is the leading cause of candida overgrowth — and candida overgrowth can lead to smaller symptoms like bloating and fatigue, but it can also lead to much more serious conditions, including cancer and multiple sclerosis!

What is candida overgrowth?

Candida overgrowth is when there is too much candida in the body. Candida is comprised of yeast and fungus. You can find it inside and outside the body naturally, but if it starts to multiple, it can be concerning for your health. Candida overgrowth can cause a variety of symptoms, which of course includes MS. Factors that may cause candida to overgrow include stress, steroids, antibiotics, and sugar.

What foods should I eat if I have MS?

If you have MS, you want to eat foods that are anti-candida. This means you should avoid dairy, sugar, gluten, alcohol and corn. You want to eat a healthy, balanced diet rich in nutrients. For additional support, try to eat anti-inflammatory and/or antioxidant foods and supplements, like Superfood Turmeric and collagen peptides.

    My younger brother was diagnosed with MS when he was in his 20’s he has been in treatment ever since with ups and downs. But he is currently going through one of the worst loosing movement and n his left leg and arm this jas happen because his neurologist has had him without medication sine October because he was going to change his medication which sadly has not been stared yet.
    I told him to look for a natural alternative and he found this article which I thank you so much for taking you time and getting all this information together.

    A very health-filled article that should help not only people with MS but other autoimmune illnesses. I suffer from RSD/CRPS and I introduced both Turmeric and Collagen mto my diet and I do experience a difference in my pain level. While there is no quick-fix for something that took several years to develop, a change in our eating habits should help to heal our bodies.

    Hello, What do you think of urine therapy? Have you heard of it? Almost done reading the book “The water of life” John W. Armstrong. If I ever get sick with anything semi serious. I will be doing a urine fast. Let me know what you think. I am trying to get a friend with MS to consider this.

  4. Becky Dale

    My husband was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and had a stroke a few years after his diagnosis. His  conditions left him with problems with swallowing and burning mouth syndrome ,blurred vision BUT his gait improved after starting the multivitamincare .org formulas which they prescribe , he started swinging his stiff arm again and could write legibly after the usage of their products . The chief of neurology at the multivitamin care always said his condition will reverse back to normal. I did not believe it until last month here after his new result.

    Hi, ive been diagnosed with MS in 2008. Had many relapses till now and they almost brought me to my knees. During the study it was the worst. No understanding from my colleagues which was destroying me mentally, my legs started shaking, i couldnt even walk more than 200 metres, although in the past i could walked for kilometres. Although i have a neurologist i think she isnt paying enough attention to the roots of my illness. FOr example as my leg and walking problems started she could have sent me to a physiotherapist or a psychologist, but no, they simply gave me another drug which actually made my situation even worse. In 13 years of having MS ive been only once in physiotherapy. Alternative methods can help even better than certain drugs, but the pharmacy and medicine are far stronger than i thought. Noone pays attention to the patients, just money money money. 🙁 Sad if someone asks me. Ive read through several articles how i could heal my body through nutrition but its like a neverending story, the foods which i should avoid in one article are good for me in the other article so im kind of confused. :/

    I was saddened to hear of ann’s death in 2017 personally i have no doubt she was murdered like so many other holistic practitioners who offered real alternative treatments that work. Glad to see her site goes on and yes to all, you can heal yourself no matter what illness you come down with!!

    I was 32 years of age when I was diagnosed PPMS in 1984 spending the next decade in either a hospital or a hospice or in several other disability related institutions until 1994 when upon receiving a re-diagnsis of RRMS I was then able to self-rehabilitate myself by following my own regimen of Diet & Exercise. I have been 95% Ambulatory and walking each and every day since 1996 and I remain thus in 2021 and beyond.

  15. Jessie J

    I’d love to know if you could recommend any specific anti fungal herbal supplements or products to kill the candida fungus off? Thanks in advance & really helpful and awesome website you have made here, I was really stoked to find this as getting sick with MS is a scary thing, but it also appears to be highly treatable and i have heard a lot of success stories online for healing the illness with diet and lifestyle changes!

  16. Lupita Brasil

    I am very glad I came across this post and stopped to read it from beginning to end, as it left on a very positive note. I was in the beginning of my own journey with MS and the depression it’s was giving me was unbearable , I found some encouragement from several blogs and last year in seeing Rochelle make her personal goals after overcoming the disease with natural medicine I have to tried it also .I’ve kind of resigned to the fact that this is how life will be for me back until I found herbs that stop this multiple sclerosis easily and relief all the Fatigue and other symptoms I was experiencing ,I’m passing this info to anyone at there because multivitamincare. org has the right cure and caregiver to this disease ….I took various supplements, medicine prescribed by neurologist,massage and physiotherapy still the disease is was progressing very fast until the the MS formula from that caregiver .

    MS can be healed naturally. My son had MS with severe neurological issues, vision problems, atrophy, electric jolts, numbness, dizziness, severe fatigue, couldn’t go up a flight of stairs, and many other issues. Peter Nicholas from the Mineral Balancing Institute helped my son completely reverse MS with his program. Now my son has his life back and free from MS.

    I take 10 000 units vitamin D3 daily and take naltrexone every night. I make my own homemade bone broth and drink it whenever I can..I have had no progression for 4 years. Hope this helps someone

  22. Christos Paraskeva

    I am a male 55 years old I was diagnosed with PPMS in 2017 by a private Doctor. NHS said it is RRMS. I had brain fog, a swollen groin, flickering left leg, weak left arm. Straight away I gave up meat and dairy. All these symptoms have gone. At present I’m left with fatigue when its hot and walking like a drunk. I take turmeric every morning, I think I have toxified myself with too much omega 3 oil and supplements, especially vitamin D, had balance issues. Now that I have stopped these. much better. Any advise?

  23. Jane

    There is no cure for MS doesn’t matter what your diet is!! I’ve had it for 18 years there’s no cure I’ve looked I’ve talked to many doctors, yes you can eat well and feel better, but you’re not cured!!!

  24. Annick

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge about MS and Candida. I have a very similar story but unfortunately I haven’t found a doctor who will treat me as you have prescribed.
    Most of the the treatment that you have outlined is achievable on your own. However you started your road to recovery using a prescribed antifungal drug for a year. I believe I need this protocol also but I don’t know of a doctor who will help me with this line of treatment. Please can you advise me of any doctor anywhere in the world who understands and approved of the treatment you are advocating? Thank you again. God bless ❤

    After an MRI in 2014, i was diagnosed of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS. After years on medications, symptoms worsened with tremors on my right hand, numbness and tingling, muscle weakness and loss of speech. Fortunately last year, i learnt about RICH HERBS FOUNDATION and their successful Multiple Sclerosis alternative treatment (ww w. richherbsfoundation. com), the Multiple Sclerosis treatment made a great difference, most of my symptoms including tremors, weakness and others gradually disappeared. I improved greatly over the 6 months treatment, its been a years since the treatment, i have no symptoms. I have a very good quality of life and a great family!

    Hi my name is Tuheshu and i have MS. I really need a mentor to help me with this disease that has caused me to have major depression.

  33. Tom

    I have MS and I to was addicted to sugar and always had lots of colds every year. I also have allergies to outside summer pollen. I have cut back on junk food and sugar. I’m currently living in a nursing home. It’s time to take my life back…

  34. Hope

    So I also consider myself cured, 8 years now symptom free. Refused straight up interferon therapy and haven’t seen a neurologist since the first who looked at me like I was the antichrist when I mentioned diet and who refused to let me leave until I took a script which then went in the bin. New diagnosis is a roller coaster ride I started on the swank diet and got a lot wrong, poisoned myself with nuts trying to up my calories as with also eliminating inflammatory foods like dairy, sugar, vegetable oil and gluten the diet is pretty minimal, ended up being so thin I was shopping in the children’s department and my hair was falling out. It was a pretty dark time, I decided if I ended up in a wheelchair I would end myself and told my partner to leave me, he didn’t he proposed to me instead.
    There has been a lot of self education and many things tried. Key points are controlling the inflammation – avoiding foods that exacerbate and consuming ones that decrease it, restoring your gut flora, vitamin d, address your parasitic load trust me you all have them, vitamin c very important for collagen, ubiquinol it’s a better form of coQ10, B12, lots of green organic veggies, sleep, exercise, prayer and meditation. With food if it comes in a packet don’t buy it.
    Initially it feels overwhelming I remember feeling like there was nothing left to eat, but the new eventually becomes the norm and not only am I healthier but those around me are too.
    Don’t buy into there is no cure, whether you want to call it cured or permanent remission know that it is possible. It takes a bit of effort and some life changes but isn’t being healthy and well worth that effort?
    Sending you all especially the newly diagnosed some hope and a hug. Our beliefs will become our reality, hold onto your optimism.

  35. Penny

    Is there alternative doctors to see that can work with you and put you on a diet? There are so many things to read but getting in contact with a person with different thoughts instead of regular meds is hard. My daughter has Ms and we are still learning. But we are all very positive.

  36. Gina

    Diagnosed few months ago by an alternative doctor with MS, hypothyroid which I knew, and overall very auto immune. Doing a low lectin diet. Dr. Gundry has wrote books on this. It is a challenge but it is def helping. My energy is back most days. I also take some supplements from NutriWest. I avoid all grains, produce with seeds like tomatoes and cucs which is hard. No ezekial bread, no oatmeal, no beans, no rice except wild rice. Smoothies in the morning packed with everything healthy I can put in them and still make them taste good. If I cheat too much, I feel it for days. Motivated to stay the course. Hoping in the months to come my body is less sensitive. Good luck on your journey. I do believe food heals.

    I went to the ER a few months ago. The doctor that saw me asked, you have MS? I said, yes, he asked, have you heard of the Swank diet? I said, no. He looked over to the script and said, why do people with MS never heard of the Swank diet? He brought out a business card with info about the diet and said, here it is known to reverse and even cure MS. I thought, wow! No doctor has ever promoted diet as a cure for MS. Dr. Brix was so passionate about it and I’m going to give it a shot. I’ve heard so many great things about it. So my hopes are high! He is the first and only doctor to ever say diet can reverse and or cure MS!

    Thank you for sharing your story. While a great read you fail to mention one thing and actually mislead people with your title. You are very lucky to not have had a relapse or further complication from MS you are not being honest when you say you are “cured”. Put simply, there is no cure for MS. You may have improved the quality of your life with the changes you have made but you are not and will never be “cured” until such time as science and/or nature figure out a way to re-grow damaged myelin. Truth is you can still relapse at any time. Please at least be honest with people while attempting top educate them.

    Thank you and good luck in your continued journey. I wish you the best.

    I wish you hadn’t jumped from being diagnosed with MS to expecting chemotherapy & a wheelchair. I have NEVER heard of chemotherapy as the treatment of choice for MS, and many with MS are walking. Been around people with MS for over 45 years…………………………………………………………………………………

    This sounds exactly what me & my son (with MS) need. He was diagnosised at 25 with 7 lesions. He lost his sight in both eyes last year for 16 days. Steroids reduced the inflammation & he regained his sight. He is currently in the hospital on solumedrol due to retrobular neuritis; losing his sight. He now has 13 lesions 3 are hugh covering some white matter cells. I need to find help in Rancho Cucamonga area, 52 miles outside Los Angeles California. He refused to take Tysabri for a year, & now at 27 years old my son wants to die; he’s very depressed. The doctor feels he needs a psychiatrist to put him on anti-depressions medication. He needs a cooling vest because where we live it gets to 105 & more degrees during summer months. Please help my son.

    Knowledge is essential to live with multiple sclerosis. I have learned from the internet. It is important to
    be informed about your medical conditions. Medical appointments are helpful when you have
    questions for your medical providers.

    You should recommend that EVERYONE have their vit D3 levels checked and if low take both
    D3 and K2 which helps absorb D3. Please reference the book by Jeffrey Bowles: Why is there
    no MS at the equator?

    That’s some good stuff! I feel liberated to know I can get through living with MS!! Thanks so much. God bless

    Anita Batten,

    You said “you’re getting peoples hopes up”. What’s wrong with that? I’ve never understood someone saying that to another person. The only thing you can do when diagnosed with an incurable disease is to get someone’s hopes up! Keep trying and testing things.. surely a better diet, that is going to reduce inflammation and reduce candida overgrowth in your gut isn’t a bad thing. I believe diet/ nutrition is the answer for most newer diseases that are out there. If this article helps one person, she has done her job.

    I wish you all the best with trying to fight this disease.

  55. D

    I am veg/ vegan —so hoping your recipes and advice are ok for me

    Wow, really cool. Sugar has many harmful effects to the body. Most don’t know that a lot of carbs break down to sugar, as well alcohol breaks down to sugar too.

    Hi! I was diagnosed with transverse mylitis, one year back. I am 34 years old and live in India. We were in UK when I got five amalgam fillings and after few months got first episode .then another one in same month .we had to come back to India for all the medical test. I was on steroids for five months .Now I am not taking any medicine .Please can you help me show the right path to be normal self again.i have difficulty walking because the muscles supporting spine have lost their strength. I am doing back strengthening exercises and yoga but not very regular with that. Hoping to hear back from you.

  62. Serena Plascoff

    Dear Ann, thank you for your article. It was very informative. I lost my dad to Ms in 1984, when there was not much known about holistic approaches. He took many vitamins. Minus the ones that were beneficial to his illness. I do believe what you say. With the right nutrition, organic fruit and vegetables, with turmeric, garlic and thyme, as well as many others you can clean your blood/system and be disease free. Thank you again for your informative and uplifting article and best of luck to you. Serena Plascoff

    Fascinating story of healing! I am wondering WHICH TYPES (numbers) of COLLAGEN are used.
    I cannot find disclosure of the TYPES of COLLAGEN are used in this product.
    Thanks for your transparency!

    I will be 64 years old in March. In December, my wife took me to emergency, concerned that I might be having a stroke. After extensive testing, including two MRIs, I was prescribed an IV treatment that has a prohibitive cost. What I have read indicates that people who stop the treatment have extreme relapses. There has to be something better.

    This is very refreshing information! I cut refined sugar from my diet in September of last year. In November, I was diagnosed with MS. (Apparently, sugar was holding my body together, and the cookie was now crumbling.) I immediately eliminated dairy and gluten in addition to the sugar. In December, I was diagnosed with lung cancer. Gee, what next?

    I saw a nutritionist in January with the goal of healing my immune system and getting my body healthy after chemo treatments. The nutritionist loaded me with supplements that totaled $2,ooo per month. I couldn’t commit to that, long-term. Cancer bills are expensive enough! I had changed my diet and added fairly pure supplements before seeing the nutritionist. But, was that enough? Your article gives me hope. Perhaps I just need to give things more time to heal. It’s probably unrealistic to expect healing during chemo, but I’m determined to do my best! I’ve succeeded in decreasing my stress levels, too. I appreciate any advice you can offer.

    My son’s symptoms were over a three-month period. It started in his back. On and off for two months, my son had pains and aches across the middle of his back. We saw my aunt who is a chiropractor and then my son’s doctor. Both said he was very tight across his back and suggested physical therapy. It didn’t help. That subsided and then his pinky finger went numb for a few days…again, that subsided. A month later, I noticed he was walking funny…that also subsided. Somewhere in the middle of all this, he experienced balance issues, only once though. We knew something wasn’t right. Right before our doctor’s appointment we noticed his left side was a little weak. His doctor confirmed that he was definitely having issues with balance and reflexes. He referred us to a neurologist. That same night, we had his first spinal MRI and then a day later the brain MRI. Both tests confirmed MS. Turns out he has many lesions in his spine that were causing the back issues. No medications or treatments ever really did anything for him, but I was actually able to cure my son’s MS after countless hours of online research and trial & error. What worked for him was MS herbal remedy I purchased from Best Health Herbal Centre. He only used the MS herbal remedy for five weeks. Curing my son’s MS has completely transformed his life and I am so grateful for my success all thanks to Best Health Herbal Centre…..For more information visit their website

    Well said! I was diagnosed with the condition noted above. Even though the medical professionals I’ve encountered all deny that diet has anything to do with my condition, I have done my own research and have concluded it truly has everything to do with your health. (In my opinion). I’ve been a vegan for two years. Still have some struggles but I’m learning to enjoy the journey!

    Need help. Fatigue in rrms killing me. Im wiped out daily. No energy. Look drunk. No pain. No tingling small spasticity. Very int in an ms diet. Going to avcupuncture next week. I want to get this sorted.

  71. Monica Haynes

    This is so helpful!!! Thank you so much I was just diagnosed with MS last year in August . I was told back In 2015 I possibly had it but couldn’t be diagnosed because I was pregnant at the time. Last year my body was under so much stress , I was unable to use the bathroom for a week. No bm’s No pee .. no nothing, I was so unsure what was going on. I went to the hospital & was sent to another one where I had a MRI for 2hrs and results came back I had MS ! I cried but I kinda already knew I had it but I just didn’t know it was causing my body to shut down. I was hospitalized for 3 days. I was put on steroids and had a catheter inserted due not being able to urinate. Some of the longest days or nights of my life. Crazy thing is doctors want tell you that the things we consume in our bodies causes the disease they just say it could be many things. Do your research and educate yourself & heal
    Yourself. I’m currently not on any medications due to having no insurance to see a specialist. I really don’t want to start any. I’m in the process now of changing my diet and cutting meat completely out. It’s the things we eat that causes this disease doctors want tell you this because they’ll stop making money from your visits and insurance. Baby steps and watch what happens. May God bless your all struggling with this disease and he gives us the good judgement we need to heal or bodies!

  72. Debbie

    I was diagnosed Jan 2017 with ms then April 2017 Lyme disease. I did 4 weeks of antibiotics then the pic line for 30 days of hell. Just had my second MRI no change. Only thing that got better was my speech and hand is not numb I am going to john Hopkins hospital specialists on Jan 23 . I am still in severe pain in my legs. I don’t know how to start this type of diet

  73. Billy West

    I was diagnosed 4 years ago with MS my life came to a complete stop it felt like. from playing baseball to being very active in hockey and also being a 3rd degree black belt in martial arts. I’ve had 2 boys and slowly started not being able to walk, eat, swallow and ended up in a wheel chair with tubes down my throat to feed me and I was not even able to pick up 10lbs let alone play with my boys or even hold them! Long story short the mother of my boys seemed that my life was over with while taking my boys from me she left up and gone! I recovered quickly by changing my diet and went to being a vegan which I hated because I loved eating meat lots of it. Long story short I got my balance back my strength back and got full custody of both of my boys which is very rarely heard of in the state of Ohio. I also went from having 4 lesions down to just 1 within a 2 year process while not taking any medicine except Tysabri for only 7 months with neurologists telling me they really have no idea how I was able to do such a thing without medicine until then I’ve became very close and built a really good relationship with God. I just want to say I understand those with pain and to my MS warriors out there that the only cure we all have is to be healthy and eat right and I mean very very right! As I sit here on my couch writing this while I have tears in my eyes and my kids sleeping right next to me don’t give up it’s hard very hard I work full time construction and roofing now so please don’t give up much love to you all out there if you as well been diagnosed with this disease please just kick it’s a*$ like I have and it’s simple but at the same time hard change your diet!

  74. Allen J. Loomis

    I was diagnosed with relapsing remitting MS in 2012. I have been on a gluten free diet for about 5 months. The medicine I am on makes me feel terrible and I am going to stop taking it. My faith in Jesus and my care taker help me tremendously. I want this illness to be gone so bad. Please contact me and let me know what I should do. I am a very outgoing person and enjoy trying to help others. I don’t want to become a burden to my best friend.

  75. Susan Adewusi

    My 18 year old daughter was diagnosed with MS, it hit out of nowhere. She is depressed and devastated. I am lost emotionally and lost for words, but I believe in your article. It would be great, if you could contact me to provide me with support for my daughter.

    Thank you,

    1. Recipe Team

      Hi Susan: Getting a diagnosis of MS can be frightening and overwhelming. We suggest you contact a functional medicine doctor who can teach you about natural solutions to healing. We also have a lot of articles on Further Food that may help you and your daughter-here are some:

  76. Jose Laureano

    Wow I love all the information from everybody. My name is Jose Laureano and I have had MS since July 2000. I used to play Softball and I had problems seeing softball in lights at night all of sudden. I went to see a neurologist and he had me due a MRI he thought I had a brain tumor. Then he called and told me I had MS. I had done the the Avonex shots that gave me flu like symptoms for day and a half every week. Then I did Copazone shots everyday which gave me 7 soreness spots on my body from shot areas. But now I take Tecfidera which are 2 pills a day for last 2 years. I have been blessed that I have never had any side effects. I have worked as a Firefighter Paramedic here in Indianapolis. People all I can say say is never give up and continue to find what is best for you. Tecfidera has been my best treatment. No I don’t work for Biogen. May God bless all of US.

  77. Kyle Jacobsen

    I was diagnosed with MS in June 2016. The doctors called me while one as working and told me the terrible news over the phone. After not listening to my wife, a BSN, about how to treat MS with out taking deadly prescription medications for a couple months. We came across Dr. Wahls protocol. This book is truly a miracle. Although, I haven’t cured myself of this disease, when the course is true, the results are significant. The other day, my wife showed me a picture of what I look liked before dieting(a terrible word BTW). The difference was remarkable. The point is, even though this technique might seem insignificant, what’s the worst that could happen if you said no to all the bad things that we know can do harm. #findfaithinthebattle

  78. John

    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.

  79. Anita Batten

    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 .

  80. DeiDra-gon

    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?

  81. Sarah m stamper

    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?

  82. 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.

  83. Mateusz

    I was diagnosed with MS 14 year ago after long treatment with various drugs (illness progress whole that time).i started diet 2 year ago (based on intolerance and also cut milk wheat all diary). after a year MS stopped develop(I done MRI scan before diet and one year after).Diet is everything!!
    All best!

  84. Ann Boroch

    Caroline – Yes doing an anti-candida diet and program will help eliminate pain with your fibromyalgia case.
    James – unfortunately I don’t know of anyone in Israel. I do Skype sessions for those that can’t see me in person.

    Yes understand this very well I put a 93 year old lady on some supplements and the results are brilliant

    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?

  88. Patrick Rahilly

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

  89. Anteshwar

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

  90. 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.

  91. Ann Boroch

    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.


  92. 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.
