Jack Osbourne (26) has revealed that he has turned to clean eating to try and stop the rapid deterioration of his body due to multiple sclerosis (MS).

The son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne was diagnosed with the debilitating condition in 2012.

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic disease where the body attacks the myelin sheaths that protects the nerves. Sufferers often experience numbness in extremeties, tingling, and a loss in vision in the early stages. 

Jack was diagnosed just two and a half weeks after the birth of his daughter Pearl.

He experienced losses of vision in his right eye, and sought help from a neurologist who eventually diagnosed him.

Jack told the Dr Oz Show in the US: “Diet is a big thing.  I am a firm believer in you are what you eat. I juice a lot, I try and stick to a Paleo Diet.”

The Paleo or 'caveman' diet favours foods available in prehistoric times, such as meat, fish, nuts and vegetables.

“At its core, I look at MS as inflammation, so I try and eliminate foods that cause inflammation.  Dairy, gluten, grains.”

He told People: “I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, ‘Why now?’  I’ve got a family and that’s what’s supposed to be the most important thing.”
