Sidenote - Another paper published regarding Dr. Wahl's diet noted the use of these supplements: "2 g each of glutathione, N acetyl-cysteine, and taurine daily, and lithium orotate 300 mg twice daily." Also, "Her MS medications included B complex vitamins, carnitine, lipoic acid, gabapentin, bupropion, baclofen, modafanil, mycophenolate, tolterodine, and minocycline."

I believe she has had marked improvement, but it's hard to tell what, exactly, is behind it.
dc10 - With regard to the list you posted, I take most of the things you listed. Lipoic Acid, CoQ10, Carnitine, and creatine my favorite based on my own research. I've been feeling much better since starting creatine earlier at the beginning of this year. I believe PwMS could stand to benefit from creatine because ATP is depleted in PwMS and creatine increases ATP (that's why athletes use it to recover). ATP is necessary for normal cell function.
Here is more about ATP and nerve injury. Granted, this is for peripheral injury which is different from CNS injury, but the mechanisms with regard to ATP are the same. This is especially true since the injury discussed here is similar to injury caused in MS -- hypoxic.
During peripheral nerve injury, hypoxia creates several cellular shock stages that could be reversible or irreversible. The reversibility depends on the cell's capability to maintain adenosine-5’-triphosphate (ATP)production. Once ATP production is stopped, the cell can no longer maintain the homeostatic functions.This produces cytotoxic edema and release of calcium by the mitochondria. ATP has many important functions on peripheral nerve repair and regeneration. It is important to maintain cellular functions and is also the energy source for axoplasmic transport. It is indispensable for the transport of nerve growth factors (NGF). There is a potential interplay between ATP and NGF in the signaling pathways triggered on their target cells. ATP has neuritrogenic and trophic effects, which are comparable to those sustained by NGF and involve several overlapping pathways. ATP exerts a protective effect on the neurons, which is valuable for nerve regeneration after nerve injury.
