Unlocking the Nutritional Code for MS. Exploring the Nourand project with Dr. Mireia Sospedra. How, what and when to eat with multiple sclerosis.
You can find the written version of the interview on my blog: https://ms-perspektive.com/37-mireia-sospedra
This time Mireia Sospedra is my interview guest and we are talking about Nourand, an information plattform for multiple sclerosis patients who are looking for trustworthy information about a healthy diet. One of the things a person affected by MS can influence itself is food – what to eat and how to prepare it. And the more we are learning about the gut microbiome and central nervous system interaction, the more relevant it seems to take care of eating healthy. But what is healthy? What makes sense and which alleged facts have no scientific basis?

Introduction – Who is Mireia Sospedra?
I was born and grew up in Barcelona, where I also studied Biology and pursued my PhD in autoimmune diseases.
After my PhD, I worked for two years as post-doctoral fellow in Paris, and afterwards, in 2001, I decided to further build my training in translational immunology in the United States. I moved to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), where I started working on multiple sclerosis. This disease has subsequently been the focus of my research until now. During my post-doc in the USA, I met my husband, who is German. We got married in 2004, in 2005 we returned to Europe, and in 2006 we got our son. Since we are back in Europe, we have lived and worked in Hamburg for 5 years and for the last 12 years in Zurich.
As you can imagine after listening to my trajectory, traveling and discovering new places is something I love, as well as cinema, which is another of my great passions.
What message would you like to share with people affected by multiple sclerosis who are interested in exploring the connection between nutrition and MS through Nourand?
Nourand can help people affected by MS to better understand their disease, how the digestive-, immune- and nervous systems work and interact, advantages and disadvantges of diets, foods and nutrients in a simple way and from the hand of experts in order to be able INCORPORATE nutrition into the management of their disease.
Finally, where can our audience find Nourand and begin their journey of discovery and empowerment in nutrition and MS?
You can find Nourand on our web page
Many thanks to Mireia and everybody who helped to create the scientific facts for a healthy diet. I think it is always great to take an active part in influencing the long-term prognosis of the disease and use as many options as possible to do so.
See you soon and try to make the best out of your life, Nele
