Could you give me a link or source for the quote?2005: ...we found no beneficial effect of chromium supplementation in the treatment of people with IGT despite increases in serum chromium levels, which suggested an adequate dosage regimen. (the study did not have a healthy control group for comparison, and the write-up also fails to mention the duration of supplementation)

Great... Then I am up the creek without a paddle. I live it seems, in constant, non-stop, stress....

I have a suspicion that they have got the reference to MS being a disease of the "central nervous system" as having a strong relevance to a state of nervousness, mixed up in their heads. Or just that mentioning "stress" is a good cure all.
If I followed advice from well-meaning, but stress-avoider-advocates in my life, I would never have gone back to university after diagnosis (I got 1st class honours), certainly never gone back a second time (recently started a diploma in a subject I always found very difficult). I wouldn't have got married. I'd never have had my son. All these things bring me immense joy and I don't regret any of the stress involved.
I think anything that helps you cope with stress is a good thing, but I think avoiding it is irrelevant to MS. There are times I'm coasting along just fine and BAM it hits me when I've not been stressed.
