Just responded to your wii question on the other thread-
Wanted to mention that there is alot your boyfriend can do for his health with diet and supplements. Look into vitamins D and B-12, and read up on omega 3 oils and magnesium/zinc/calcium. An Italian mediterranean diet is good, with healthy olive oil, fresh fruits and vegetables and fish. Also red wine! And enjoy the sunshine.
My husband has done well on copaxone, but it does take around 6 months to become effective on the t-cells.
Wishing you all the best,
Really thank you!
This forum makes you "feel less alone" (i don't know if this sentence makes sense, actually it is the translation for an italian expression...)
I saw that there a lot of suggestions about diet and supplement (about red wine: unfortunately it seems to increase rebif side effects, and that could be a big problem sice my boyfrend is an oenologist....).
I began to read a lot of things, I have to understand something about how this desease works and what substances are good or not.
I must confess that even if we know about it since a long time, i never addressed it seriously. I mean: even if it is very stupid, i think my heart hoped it could be fine. Besides, I had big problems with my mum. She had a cancer, a really rare one, so all our strenghts, time and effords were put into it. Because while ms is a very slow thing to get worse (almost in our case), cancer grows extremely quickly and you can see people change day to day. So, even if I realised it was a nonsense, i put myself on my mother disease because i thought we can manage it and then face ms. i was terribly wrong. so, now i'm here to begin to understand what we can do to fight against ms. and i'd like to thank you all for your support!
