Swank and Dugan provide complete background information on the development of the diet and the clinical tests that have proven its effectiveness. In addition to helpful sections on the lifestyle of the M.S. patient, Swank and Dugan offer tips on sticking to the diet, equipping the kitchen, shopping for healthful food, eating out (with some pertinent information on fast-food restaurants), and keeping the careful dietary records that are essential to continuing good nutrition.

Please provide the rest of this wonderful book online and give full access to it? It is no longer available in print. People who have old copies sell them at exhorbitant prices. This WONDERFUL book is the basis of a very successful diet to treat MS. Dr Swank followed his patients for over 35 years and they did remarkably well on the diet. It kept their symptoms in check and they were still walking.
