Food plays a large part in our lives, giving daily pleasure, helping us celebrate special events, share time with our family and friends and so on. But what about our health? Rarely a day passes without a new diet or a food-related health message or scare hitting the press. An internet search on diet and MS will yield a huge amount of information, much of it conflicting. So how do you separate the grain from the chaf, and decide what is relevant for you?
Tip: Plan menus and shopping lists so you will have appropriate ingredients and meal ideas at your fingertips. Get family and friends on your side. Explain that by offering encouragement, they are doing something positive to help control your M.S. (information supplied by the Multiple Sclerosis Research Centre).
