What is the McDougall diet for multiple sclerosis (MS)?
Multiple Sclerosis Foundation answeredThe McDougall diet for multiple sclerosis (MS) is a diet created by John McDougall, MD, who is also a nutrition expert. The diet is based on starches. Starches are a category of food that are vegetable in matter but also have a lot of calories, such as beans, corn, sweet potatoes and rice. The diet also includes nonstarchy green, red, purple and yellow vegetables -- such as kale, broccoli and cauliflower -- and some fruits, grains, rice, tubers and legumes. The McDougall diet avoids meats, dairy, oils and processed foods.

How can I make sure infections don't cause lingering, chronic problems?
Michael Roizen, MD, Internal Medicine, answered
While most of us want to treat infections because of their acute symptoms, we also can't ignore that they can have chronic implications as well. Since inflammation and infection can be two of the dominos in the cascade of low energy symptoms, one of your goals could be to monitor your body so that infections don't linger. That means regular flossing to decrease the risk of gum inflammation, regular use of a neti-pot to reduce sinusitis, and probiotics, and treating such infections as prostatitis, bowel infections, and vaginitis. Many infections may be viral, in which case good sleep, frequent hand washing, and food choices that avoid all simple sugars and saturated fats can help.
