Supplements, diet, and optic neuritis

Hi there,
I'm hoping to get some feedback on my regime. I'm battling optic neuritis (original flare was in March 2012 with improvement but not full recovery and then a worsening in December).

I exercise 5x a week for 45 minutes (running, elliptical, biking) plus 2x a week yoga
I eat gluten & dairy free, tons of green smoothies, fresh fruit and veg, salmon and lean red meats.
I also add to my smoothies coconut ...

Blood test results

It makes sense to get a baseline on some things, so that's what I did. I'm using jimmylegs numbers that can be found on the site.

B12 - aim for 500 pmol/L 205 pmol/L - short there - adding B12 to the daily list of pills....
D3 aim for 100 nmol/L - 98 nmol/L - not bad
zinc aim for 18.2-18.4 umol?L - 14.5 umol/L - a tad low I guess
magnesium aim for .91 ...

My "regimen"

First let me state that I do not promote anything, sell anything etc. I started this topic to have a place to write everything and maybe get some feedback. :-D

As I said before I got sick last November, prior to this I had no issues that I could relate to MS. No needles and pins, nothing at all.

Last July I got on a diet ...

Nourishing Traditions--Sally Fallon/Weston Price

Just curious if anyone else (Jimmylegs??) was into the Nourishing Traditions way of eating. I was a vegetarian/vegan for 10 years and was in remission from all my ills for 7 years. Then I was the sickest I had ever been in my life all of a sudden with new neuro symptoms while I was vegan.

The above occurrence and a sudden unexplained craving for flank steak I could not ignore, made me decide to ...

What is the differance between Vit.D 2--Vit. D 3 ?

`JIMMYLEGS` Can you tell me what the difference is between those two vitamins? Somewhere ijn this web site I did see that you say that Vit.D 3 is better. Why? I have asked several pharmacists and they have all told me that they are the same. So why sell both than? I trust your judgement better.

Why the Paleo-Macrobiotic Diet Works

Why the Paleo-Macrobiotic Diet Works

First let’s think about all the reasons you might not want to be bothered by Diet. With a major health problem life is difficult enough without depriving yourself of the pleasure of eating. Food resonates with family, security, comfort, friendship, sharing. If you can’t eat how other’s eat, this becomes another factor of exclusion.

Soy lecithin dose?

Just wondering if anyone knows what a good dose would be for soy lecithin granules?
I was having it a few years ago as recommended by a naturopath but can't remember how much I took.

If anyone is taking this I'd love to know what amount.
Thanks
