below are some links to various nutrient strategies for ms. some are older, some are newer.
for instance in the older klenner stuff, you will see heavy B vitamin influence in the protocol (not to mention E). in newer stuff, vitamin D is key.
in spite of the fears surrounding dysregulated iron in ms brains, low serum iron can also be responsible for fatigue. have you had an iron test? are you male or female, pre or post menopause? vegetarian or close to it? any reasons to suspect that iron could be involved?
that's about that, except that i'm going to delve deeper into the iron recommendation, due to the ongoing discussion of iron, CCSVI, and chelation. so, here goes:
if your iron is in fact low, you may wish to be careful how you supplement it, due to the findings of iron deposits in ms brains. it is thought this could be due to the reflux conditions you may already have read about in the rather recent discussions surrounding CCSVI.
personally (i think hardly anyone here at TIMS is really hearing this opinion), i think you need the iron for its own sake regardless of deposition in the brain in MS. i think people are getting mixed up between iron overload, and iron dysregulation. that's not to say that there aren't ppl here with chronic high iron... but there are plenty here at the other end of the scale too.
and this is where i think zinc might become a player... zinc is important for your body's handling of iron and zinc is known to be lower in ms patients compared to healthy controls.
if you go the dietary route to boost iron (if needed/desired) make sure you boost the intake of easily absorbed 'heme' iron-rich foods - not so much the non-heme, less absorbable iron-rich foods. here's a quick link to some iron info (NB on the importance of vitamin C for good iron absorption!)
Good Food Sources of Iron
at the same time, you can't just start taking iron and zinc together - you'd have to take them at different times of day because they interfere with one another. might be good to take them at different times of the month, even, say 3 weeks taking a zinc every day, 1 week on iron. but don't take my word on that idea - personally i take zinc every day and try to do one week of iron per month. i make sure i take the zinc and iron at different times of day.
iron supplements back you up, so plenty of fruits and vegetables are in order - i also like to add a magnesium citrate, it's great for your muscles and helps keep things moving inside.
hope that helps,
..and here are those links....
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
