Study Title: Effects of a Nutritional Consult on Adherence and Self-Efficacy towards an Anti-Inflammatory Diet
Rationale: Past research in our lab has shown benefits of a robust specific diet towards reducing inflammation which, in turn, can help alleviate secondary complications of MS. However, long-term adherence has been an issue due to several recognized factors. This consults aims to eliminate those factors to improve long-term adherance.
Study Description: 12-16 participants will be enrolled in the study. The intervention group will be asked to participate in a 2-3 consult along with a 20-minute interview one month after the consult. The intervention and control group will both fill out 4 surveys asking them about their experiences with neuropathic pain, depression, bowel function and anti-inflammatory eating self-efficacy. Both groups will complete food logs. Results will be used to help improve the curation of a program to reduce inflammation in MS and SCI individuals through diet modification.
