I have been under the impression that Vitamin C is generally not recommended for people with MS because it may stimulate the immune system. I started to read more about it and came across this news release. Discovery Shows New Vitamin C Health Benefits

Therapeutic Fasting

About three years ago, I got this idea that an age-old therapy could be used to treat exacerbations. Maybe my results are circumstantial, but I can't help but wonder: can "juice fasting" hinder MS disease activity? After all, there has been research done on the "harmful" effects of starvation diets like juice fasts and the like; of those harmful effects, a "weakened immune system" is a finding I've encountered more than once.

I hope this is the Vitamin Supplement thread. :) Long post, but I thought interesting info :)

In my quest to try and figure out how best to manage MS, I’ve discovered more interesting research on ALCAR. In addition to potentially helping with the fatigue, it seems ALCAR may have a neuroprotective role in MS, a very speculative peripheral ...
