Thank you Mr Barlow - am looking into the supplements to start straight away x
Luckily I knew what I had before diagnosis so I started Vitamin D and fish oils. Since then I have refined supplement and diet regimen. To date I have only suffered a little nerve damage which is limited to transient effects - buzzing in feet and sometimes hands and a little blurriness in the left eye.
I am convinced early action to damp down the immune system and limit scondary damage is the key to getting this awful disease under control.
In Tesco's / H&B etc you can get all the basics - Vit D, omega 3, magnesium, b complex, zinc, a good multivit, evening primrose oil.
Also look at anti oxidants - resveratrol, quercetin, alpha lipoic acid.
I'd also consider getting a UVB lamp as West Wales not exactly sunshine capital of the World! Im in Saudi Arabia and regualrly sunbath on my balcony - Im sure this helps not only with Vit D but various sulphur ccyle reactions that occur.
Diet - oily fish, fish, poultry, loads of brassicas and sulphur rich foods - onions and leeks
Probably best to keep wheat and dairy to a minimum.
