Next, look into the Natural Approach and Diet forums and check out some supplements and dietary changes that will reduce your body's tendency towards inflammation. In particular, eliminate trans fat and reduce saturated fat and simple sugars. Next, try omega-3 supplements from fish oil. Also look into green tea, vitamin D3, curcumin from turmeric, zinc, magnesium, and r-lipoic acid (a potent antioxidant). In addition to these steps, I think that it's also important to maintain an exercise routine to the best of one's ability. Eventually, it seems that MS makes it hard to do things, therefore we do less, as a result it becomes even more difficult to do things. It's a vicious circle. With MS, we have to fight for the privilege of standing still.
