GL, i'm just going to go over my approach and please forgive me if i'm telling you anything you already know.
i have self treated by researching serum findings in typical ms patients. these include, to my knowledge so far, low vitamin D3 - specifically "25hydroxycholecalciferol" (the best indicator of vitamin D status), vitamin B12, magnesium, uric acid, zinc, and iron. i request bloodwork for nutrients, supplement where necessary according to the results, and do followup bloodwork to monitor the impact of my supplement regimen. i have not yet had all relevant nutrients tested but am making progress.
such tests, when requisitioned by my family doc, are covered under (canadian) government health care. i am fortunate in having accomodating doctors.
i have a number of results now. i see definite aspects of my personal history that explain unsatisfactory findings, and have modified various dietary behaviours accordingly.
i have had prescriptions written for one of my supplements: vitamin d3 (cholecalciferol). i buy the rest myself. in canada, we write off supplement purchases on our tax returns.
here is a link to a site which is really in line with my thinking on my personal version of ms: http://www.nhfw.info/multiple-sclerosis.html
there is one exception - i am not yet on board with the gluten intolerance idea. we'll see. also where estrogen is mentioned... ovaries have receptors for calcitriol (1,25dihydroxycholecalciferol), the most active metabolite for vitamin d - so might not sufficient vitamin d status improve a person's estrogen status? but i digress...
i am suprised i have not run across that site before! i am also suprised that the correlation between its information on iron, and the implied rationale for higher ms incidence in women is not clearly stated. (did you know that gout and ms are mutually exclusive?) perhaps it's elsewhere on that site...?
one aspect of my supplement regimen that does not have to do with nutrient status, is acidophilus. i saw that for myself, candida overgrowth was definitely an issue. acidophilus and dietary modification is helping there. there is some overlap between this approach and the wheldon protocol, which utilizes acidophilus to balance the impact of antibiotic treatment. (abx are known to create conditions amenable to candida overgrowth).
i have also added ginkgo biloba, since it increases blood blow, and therefore oxygen and nutrient delivery to tissue.
i think that's all for now
