Ashton Embry, the president and research director of DIRECT-MS, has written numerous essays, columns for MS magazines, letters to various officials and researchers, and articles published in medical journals. These writings go back to 1996 when he wrote “Multiple Sclerosis: Probable Cause and Best Bet Treatment” and made it available on the web. This essay has been subsequently broken into two parts, “Food Hypersensitivities and MS” and “Best Bet Treatment for MS”.
Ashton’s concepts of the causal factors of MS and recommended nutritional strategies have evolved somewhat since that 1996 essay was released.
