Re: Need help

Sodium ascorbate is a form of vitamin C. B complex is a fairly common supplement, taken by many. Omega-3 is also taken by many ms'ers. I know all of these are very helpful for MS and health in general, but I've never heard of taking these 3 being a cure for MS, but who knows. The only vitamins I've ...

Re: Andrographolides. Does anybody know what is that?

interesting. It looks like the trial was completed in 2017, but no results were posted- not encouraging. Andrographolide seems to be an extract of the green chireta plant, which is used for medicinal purposes in southeast asia. Here's a little more info: https://www.ms-uk.org/Plant_may_help_patients...

Re: Best Bet Diet from movie Living Proof

David, realize that there are gluten free options for pasta, bread, and pizza. They are all quite good, especially the pasta. Ronzoni makes a gluten free pasta that could pass for the real thing. There are dairy free substitutes for milk and cheese, although the cheese is marginal.

Re: Interesting General info on Magnesium

I agree that magnesium is critical, especially if you are doing a lot of vitamin D. However, it's a turn off to see a doctor touting benefits of a supplement, and then selling them on the same web site.

Re: New member seeking help

For pain, CBD oil is very helpful, it may also help with MS in general. CBD oil is perfectly legal and safe, with no narcotic effect. Have you had your vitamin D level checked? Taking 10,000 IU a day is safe and the max you can take without a doctor's intervention. There is a protocol - Dr Coimbra's...
