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 ...

Coimbra Protocol

NHE, jimmylegs,

We need a new thread in treatments called "The Coimbra Protocol". Something was started in "natural approach" and this thread could be the start of The Coimbra Protocol. It is essentially high-dosing VitD but with care taken to determine correct dosing of D3 and monitoring of serum levels of calcium, phosphorus etc. We could invite Professor Coimbra to pay us a visit once a thread is active.

New Diagnosis - Any Suggestions?

Hello everyone! I just got my MS diagnosis on Friday so this is all very new to me. These forums are so helpful! My neurologist did not prescribe any medication for me as of yet and I would rather try a natural approach first any way, I think. I see the recommendations for Vitamin D and Vitamin B12 but what else do you recommend?

Thank you so much for your help!
