Great results from ketones

I was diagnosed RRMS in 1987 and SPMS in 2013. I had a walker, cane, accessible parking permit and a caregiver for 3 years. I was overweight and looking for options and came across ketogenic in the late summer of 2016 and after researching, decided to try it. The diet requires a lot of fat, so I ate a lot of coconut oil. My physical symptoms went away in about 6 weeks. I was gobsmacked. I no longer needed the cane, walker, parking permit or caregiver. I have been symptom free since November 2016. I am now confident enough to share my story. There are mouse studies and trials with MS patients of the ketogenic diet and coconut oil in Germany, Spain and the united states since 2016. Hope is not lost.

I lost about 10 lbs. The major benefit was physical. I no longer needed a caregiver to get my legs into bed at night. I can walk a straight line. My foot drop is gone. I have energy. I posted my story on YouTube this week. I wanted to wait until enough time passed that I could say with certainty that I was better. Now is the time.

I eat high saturated fat every day. Coconut oil, butter, whipping cream in my coffee. It may sound crazy, but the number of MS cases doubled since we were told that saturated fat was vilified and we stopped eating it.

@tracey_kilgour very interesting because you do hear the doctors saying to lower your saturated fat x
