Sounds like your friend might be changing the diet in the wrong direction. Dr. McDougall is currently researching a low-fat, vegan diet for MS patients, based in part on past research. I understand he is having some success. I found the following excerpt from an article at http://www.drmcdougall.com/misc/2011nl/sep/redmill.htm
"Almost four years ago a partnership between the McDougall Research and Education Foundation (a 501c3 tax deductible corporation, Employer ID # 82-0573876) and the neurology department at OHSU was established to study the effects of a healthy diet on the progression of multiple sclerosis (MS).
Participants involved in this research are randomly assigned to follow the low-fat, starch-based McDougall Diet or the standard American diet (the control diet)."
