There are many different theories as to the cause of MS. The big problem is that nobody has been able to prove ANY of them. And until that is done, there isn't much hope in trying to find anyting resembling a cure.
In my case I initially tried Interferon which half killed me although to be fair I didnt have any further relapses.

Removal of mercury amalgam fillings
Avoid air pollution.
