Not specifically MS, but I do think parallels can be drawn.
I recently found some studies using Antioxidant therapy in autoimmune thyroid disease and the results were quite significant in regards to symptomatic expression of ailments even though thyroid hormone levels remained unchanged. This suggests the antioxidant depletion through the condition was a secondary effect of the primary disease state and supplementing improved symptoms markedly, this seems to be the case with many of the MS treatments that I have seen discussed here, whether they be vitamins, oils, herbs or drugs.
Although they do add significant value in supporting the body and improving quality of life, there are still underlying imbalances that need to be addressed, I tend to agree very much with JimmyLegs approach of correcting nutritional imbalances via supplementation and testing and in addition to that a total life review in identifying all the possible factors contributing negatively to ones health, which includes diet, lifestyle, sleep patterns, stress etc.
One needs to go the extra mile in this, it is irrelevant to compare to the general population and say they are doing so & so and they don't have MS therefore it's probably not an issue, don't kid yourself everyone has issues they're just expressed differently, so the goal IMO is to research for yourself and determine what you feel an ideal situation is and aim yourself in that direction, choose the healthiest diet & lifestyle and try to emulate it as best you can without causing undue stress, anyway that's the approach my partner has taken and is seeing positive results for her AI thyroid condition, as for the MS side there is a few people I know there, but they don't feel the inclination to go the extra mile and have just settled into their drug treatment regime and resigned themselves to gradual deterioration.
I am just an interested individual trying to crack the autoimmune nut.
Partner has Graves Disease, 5 years, showing good test results, looking forward to potential remission in the near future.
3 friends have MS, 1 just recently diagnosed, severity 7/10.
