How powerful could gelatin be in the treatment of multiple sclerosis? {My aunt is dying and it is very hard on the family due to the degree of deterioration. It would be a miracle if there were any improvement at all.}

I suggest that you transition your diet from "paleo" to the ketogenic diet, as an experiment. The diets are nearly the same, but the ketogenic diet focuses on reducing carbohdrate intake to below 50g or near zero. There are some people with... (more)
