Research Opportunity for Individuals Recently Diagnosed with Clinically Isolated Syndrome or Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis
We are recruiting for our new study! This study is comparing diet and therapeutic lifestyle to the usual care of newly diagnosed individuals.
Patients that have been offered and declined disease-modifying drug treatment (DMARDs) for a preference in lifestyle changes will be asked to adopt The Wahls Paleo ™ Diet, a stress reduction breathing pattern, and brief exercise and body strengthening routine. The Wahls Paleo ™ Diet excludes all gluten, dairy, and eggs. For more information see our latest press release: Newly diagnosed MS patients needed for clinical trial testing efficacy of diet, lifestyle change! Recruitment for this arm has ended, as we have reached needed recruitment numbers.
Patients that receive usual care and take disease-modifying medications for treatment that would like to participate will be asked to share medical records to confirm their diagnosis, record changes in their medications, and symptoms over one year, and complete online surveys every three months. For more information see our Standard of Care (Observational) study arm flier below!
