I received this in an email from Dexter who has been sending interesting information to me. This is an 18 minute long video in which the speaker, a physician, relays her recovery from disabling multiple sclerosis (MS) to walking without a cane within three months and riding her bike eighteen miles within 9 months. Prior to changing her diet she had taken advantage of the best medical care available but continued to deteriorate.
Like Alzheimer's, MS is a disease that involves defective mitochondria, so this diet would be very helpful to those suffering from Alzheimer's (and Parkinson's and ALS) as well.
We have already made a lot of progress toward this type of diet, but after watching this, we will amp up our intake of vegetables.
