For those who have studied Multiple Sclerosis alternative cures, the diet of low saturated fat is not new.
But, lately, Dr. Swank's diet is considered the “most effective treatment of Multiple Sclerosis ever reported in the peer review literature.”
The stats don't lie. A whopping 95 percent of people with the early stages of Multiple Sclerosis showed no progression of the disease up to 34 years after being on the diet.
The diet restricts meat and dairy. The reasons behind the success is explained in a video (see attached) and it has to do with the antibodies in our bodies.
Some of the basics include:
Saturated fat should not exceed 15 grams per day.
Unsaturated fat (oils) should be kept to 20-50 grams per day.
No red meat for the first year.
After the first year, 3 oz. of red meat is allowed once per week.
Dairy products must contain 1% or less butterfat unless otherwise noted.
No processed foods containing saturated fat.
Cod liver oil (1 tsp. or equivalent capsules) and a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement are recommended daily.

No medical treatments on the market today have shown a success as strong as the simple diet change.
