optimizing your nutritional status to match 'healthy controls' as opposed to a typical MS patient's nutritional profile.
key items: vit b12, vit d3, vit E, zinc, uric acid, magnesium, selenium, ferritin, hemoglobin, it goes on and on.
i find this approach has the best chance of success if all the following stars align:
1) the patient must be interested and positive, and
2) committed to taking the time to understand the various aspects of the approach.
3) the patient must also have either coverage for testing or money to pay for the tests.
4) the doctors must be willing to consider the extensive body of scientific literature on nutritional differences between MS patients and healthy controls.
5) they must also be willing to write the needed requisitions and
6) relay details of your results.
in my experience it takes everything listed above to have a real chance of success using nutrition to help treat MS.
some people come to me for help after their surgery. i'd much rather you came before, especially if your symptoms are mild.
if you're interested, please PM me.
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
