Can practicing a healthy lifestyle, which includes a healthy diet, decrease Multiple Sclerosis symptoms?
In the U.S. alone, approximately 400,000 people suffer from Multiple Sclerosis (MS). MS is an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system. There are a variety of symptoms of MS, and it affects people in different ways, but there is no cure.
