Can Diet Affect Your Health Issues In A Seriously Awesome Way?

Can Diet Affect Your Health Issues In A Seriously Awesome Way?

My husband has been focusing on his diet since his diagnoses of multiple sclerosis (MS). When he eats foods that agree with him, he feels better. And, since he’s boosted up certain vitamins and his greens, he feels great.

I’m not going to get into what he is eating for his health (yet), because – even though his symptoms are improving and his energy is rising – I can’t confidently say what the exact diet is that is benefiting him yet. We are just starting to tweak, add, and eliminate.

But we have been doing a lot of research on people who have focused on diet to improve their symptoms, not only in MS, but in other things as well.

If you even remotely believe that your diet can help you overcome symptoms and possibly even eliminate disease, then you are not alone!

Even though my husband’s neurologist shook his head when we asked if we could do something with his diet to help, we still absolutely believe that we can make good things happen by eating a diet that promotes good health.

Here are a few other people who don’t just believe, but experienced the benefits of changing their diet.

1. Tasha Lee – Fruit Based Diet

This girl makes you smile, but more importantly she makes you raise your eyebrows when she tells you that she only eats fruits – for the most part. I actually found her videos when looking for a recipe for banana ice cream in the vitamix!

As you can see from her videos, she thrives on this diet and she is acutely aware of what foods work for her and what foods don’t.

She has had diabetes since 11 and epilepsy since 13. Her diet has helped her reverse her epilepsy and diabetes complications. You can read about that here.

2. Dr. Terry Wahls – Paleo Based Diet

Terry Wahls helped us to start really changing my husband’s diet (and mine) for the better. Her story is quite interesting. She focuses on a paleo-based diet.

Note: You will notice on the video there is a message about the talk falling outside of the curatorial guidelines. Don’t let that stop you from watching it if you have MS or know someone who does. Just click off the messages in the top right of the text box and see if anything she says speaks to you.

There are a lot of positive comments on the video from real people who think this was a great lecture that you can take a lot from. I know that since my husband has started to eat with her guidelines (as well as some of our own), his energy has improved and symptoms have lessened.

3. Megan Sherow – Raw Food Diet

Megan was diagnosed with brain cancer at the young age of 13. She is an intelligent girl who really has a passion for health that you don’t see in a lot of people. Although, I’m sure there are a lot of younger people who are passionate about health – especially now with all the talk about healthier eating.

But, I remember when I was her age, I didn’t think about energy, health, and well-being. I thought about things like dating and sneaking out! And, sadly, I would eat McDonald’s for most of my meals.

In any case, you can find Megan in a few different videos online. This one was the shortest that I found.

There Are More Stories Out There!

The point I’m trying to make is that if you are sick and living with symptoms, why not try to tweak your diet? There are plenty of people out there willing to tell you their story.

In addition, there is a lot of interesting research out there to help you connect the dots on what you can try for your specific health problems – not just with diet, but with your overall lifestyle (exercise, stress reduction) and alternative health techniques (massage, reflexology, and acupuncture).

If you don’t want to research it yourself, reach out to a holistic doctor who can give you some insight. They are more than happy to help you discover new ways of approaching your health.

  1. I tried raw food diet in the past, but it’s bit extreme. Every body is different and need to find out what works for them. Eating natural food is way better than popping pills. Thanks for the post.

  2. Hi;

    I too know someone who suffers with MS and others who suffer with Fibromyalgia. Such debilitating illness’s.

    These people find that a healthy clean diet pays off along with Reserve Gel packs from Jeunesse. I’m not saying that they’re cured but they have a better quality of life.

    Bye for now

  3. Megan story is really inspiring (x like you i also didnt gave attention to healthier food but now i do 🙂 they can be very beneficial for us (x Natural foods are lot healthier .. and you diet information is really helpful 🙂

  4. I always believe that healthy diet can always help us get a better health. I have observing my diet for 2 years. been a lot of green food, fruits, and many more that are nutritious. And it really is a different feeling, It is better that I invest my money for good food rather use it for medication later on. That’s a great thing that you focus on healthy diet while having medication. even though there are other people that doesn’t believe about eating great healthy food it is better that we believe for ourselves. great post. live healthy.

  5. Actually diet varies from person to person. The diet that works for me, can’t work for others. So we have to check our health condition first and should have to determine which diet works best. For that we should try different diet for a certain time. But its true that good diet can make a man sound healthy. Thanks 🙂

    1. A good diet doesn’t just make a man (or woman by the way) ‘sound’ healthy, it actually makes him healthy. I’ve seen it time and time again.
