zinc and copper

bit confused about taking zinc and copper. First can they be taken together? and should they be taken separately if possible? I ask because lots of supplements combine them yet i thought they compete with each other. Are they synergestic taken together? I see this board recommend 50/2 but most of the information on the net says 10:1 combo. Any clarification, thanks.

Relief with Hypericum?

Hello!

Any supplements we should NOT take?

Hi,
I'm newly diagnosed and at the beginning of my research. I've read that because MS is an auto-immune problem, you should not take things that boost the immune system. I've always taken a holistic approach to health and am on a variety of supplements now. Would someone be able to share a list of "do not take" vitamins/herbs?
Thanks!

(By the way, I'm on no meds yet. I have none of the symptoms I ...
