MS and food intolerance.
From the beginning of this century there have been centers where special diets for people with MS were prescribed.
A clinical comparison has not been possible.
Dogs and cocoa.
When dogs consume cocoa products, they become paralysed and incontinent. Heart disease may follow, the dogs soon die. Dr. A. Glauberg, DVM and Dr. P. Blumenthal, MD, in 1983 published their findings concerning the theobromine metabolism in dogs, as compared to the same in humans.
The metabolism of theobromine in dogs was very much slower than same in human beings.
P450 and MS.
Cocoa is an alkaloid, which is metabolised with the aid of the liver-enzyme- system P450 (CYP). This enzyme cannot as yet be determined in the blood. There is a lot of circumstantial evidence that P450 (CYP) activity is abnormal in MS. We have found that if MS patients do not consume certain foodsubstances, the ones normally metabolised with the aid of P450 (CYP), the MS will remain stable.
An antihistamine is useful if an offensive 'xenobiotic' has been ingested. All the antihistamine seems to do in MS is to stop the abundant fluid production in the CNS, remove the edematous patches as soon as possible, prevent CNS damage, scars later on.
The elimination diet for people with MS has nothing in common with alternative medicine. More with phenylketonuria (PKU), where the demyelination of the CNS has been stopped with an elimination diet as well. In PKU there is a deficiency of the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase. In MS we have increasing evidence of malfunction of the liver-enzyme-system P450.
