Healthy Living: Intermittent Fasting & MS

Nearly one million Americans are living with multiple sclerosis.

There are nearly 15 FDA approved drugs to slow or modify the course of the disease, and there are dozens more to treat specific symptoms of the disease.

Now new research is offering hope, not with a drug, but by changing how patients eat.

Courtney Hunter explains in Healthy Living.

Dr. Cross says intermittent fasting seems to have an anti-inflammatory effect.

This could actually change the course of the disease, rather than be a treatment to manage the symptoms.

The next step is to do a larger trial with more patients to determine just how beneficial intermittent fasting can be for people with MS.
