Paleo Diet as Treatment
« on: October 19, 2006, 09:03:01 AM »
It is mentioned that mismatch between human metabolism of the ancient origin and the ingestion of modern food is the causative factor for conditions like Multiple sclerosis, Lupus and arthritis.
Is data available about the successful management of such patients by resorting to Paleo diet ?

I believe there are probably other factors that attribute to the development of said conditions. While diet may contribute - possibly to a large degree - we have to recognize that the lifestyles we lead are far different from those of (possibly hundreds of) thousands of years ago. I wouldn't contribute each condition wholey to diet; I don't think the Paleo diet itself will completely cure MS.

And on that note I do not have any studies to cite. This is all really based on conjecture.
