Diet Plan for multiple sclerosis

What multiple sclerosis (MS)?

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease affecting the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord).MS occurs when the immune system attacks nerve fibers and myelin sheathing (a fatty substance that surrounds/insulates healthy nerve fibers) in the brain and spinal cord. This attack causes inflammation, which destroys nerve cell processes and myelin–altering electrical messages in the brain.



Multiple sclerosis (MS) can cause a wide range of symptoms and affect any part of the body. Each person with the condition is affected differently.

The symptoms are unpredictable. Some people's symptoms develop and worsen steadily over time, while for others they come and go. Periods, when symptoms get worse, are known as relapses. Periods, when symptoms improve or disappear, are known as remissions.

Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Vision problems
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Muscle spasms, stiffness, and weakness
  • Mobility problems
  • Pain
  • Problems with thinking, learning, and planning.
  • Depression and anxiety.
  • Sexual problems.
  • Bladder problems.
  • Bowel problems.
  • Speech and swallowing difficulties.



The cause of multiple sclerosis is unknown. It's considered an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks its own tissues. In the case of MS, this immune system malfunction destroys the fatty substance that coats and protects nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord (myelin).

Myelin can be compared to the insulation coating on electrical wires. When the protective myelin is damaged and the nerve fiber is exposed, the messages that travel along that nerve fiber may be slowed or blocked.

It isn't clear why MS develops in some people and not others. A combination of genetics and environmental factors appears to be responsible.

Guidelines and Recommendations for Multiple Sclerosis:

Dietary guidelines and recommendations aim to help manage MS symptoms to improve their overall quality of life

Diet may help with MS in several ways, including:

  • Preventing or controlling its progression
  • Helping manage its symptoms
  • Reducing flare-ups


Ideally, an MS-friendly diet should be:

  • High in antioxidants to fight inflammation
  • High in fiber to aid bowel movements
  • Adequate in calcium and vitamin D to fight osteoporosis
  • Pack plenty of vitamins and minerals to fight fatigue and promote wellness
