    Newly diagnosed 10/22.  My neurologis has put me on Vitamin D 5000/day, a B12 Nasal spray (if my insurance approves it).  I also bought Krill oil which is 300mg.  Now I am hearing from others that I should be taking Vitamin E as well as Potassium.  Help!  Can anyone tell me what they have been told or are using or just help me out with some good info here please?  Should I consider a multi-vitamin for the E&Potassium maybe??

    Magnesium / Spirulina / B-complex / mega amounts of D / Co Q-10 / fish oil / Turmeric / and a multi. That's my alphabet soup. And I use my juicer daily. I haven't been told to use any of these specifically. Some have been recommended by the good folks here since Dx (4.4.12) and some I have been taking for years.

    Are you on any medication?  We're trying to find out if there are any contra-indications to Tysabri, when our daugter starts the infusion in one week.  She's doing ALL the same natural things, you are doing, too.   Any word on whether gluten free has worked for you? grain free? dairy free? soy free? so much to learn.. (-:  Thank you.

    These are what I take too, plus few more. Cal/Mag/Zinc, Evening Primrose oil, Vit E, Vit C, Probiotics. I also just started on Quercetin & Bromelain and Alph-lipoic Acid, as they were recommended in my first MS group meeting. I also just started using maca powder and matcha green tea to get me going without coffee.

    ~sarahsmom, I just had my 11th infusion of Tysabri, and I'm very happy with it. No side effects, and from what I have experienced and asked about, there are really no contraindications.

    I have been gluten free for that whole time, and 99% dairy free (I'll cheat on a good GF cookie made with butter, and started eating goat cheese again). I use coconut oil for just about everything. I can't say that I've noticed any differences, but I have always eaten very healthy food. I'm a fish-eating vegetarian, so I love fruit and veggies and eat as much as I can, mostly organic. The important thing is keeping your gut healthy, and not letting the gluten and dairy allow unhealthy things get into the blood stream. Don't give the white blood cells anything else to fight!

    I think just a good healthy diet along with the vitamins/supplements and the Tysabri have worked together to keep me mostly symptom-free for almost a year.

    I hope the Tysabri works well for your daughter!

    I take a supplement called protandim which is more powerful than any vitamins it lowers your oxidative stress levels by 40% in just 30 DAYS and it is backed up by science. Its a scientific breakthrough and ive had ms for 14 years and nothing has helped me over the years, everthing has side effects. Protandim is all natural and i have been symptom free since 7/1/3012 you can look on  my website Mylifevantage.com/polit for more information. Its amazing!!!!!

    I am currently taking Tecfidera and it makes me feel pretty sick much of the time, even after a couple of months taking it.  I've read quite a bit about Protandim; I am thinking of switching to a natural product along with my changes to diet and more exercise.  What can you or others tell me about the success of switching to natural products, and how can i get Protandim at a discounted price?

    I LOVED MAX GXL AND THEN PROTANDIM AND WHEN I SAW A NAT MS DOC, SHE HELPED WITH SUPPLEMENTS TO LESSEN THE COST THAT ARE COMPARABLE....... SAME FEELING AS EXPENSIVE SUPPLEMENTS. 

    THIS IS SO COOL TALKING THIS WITH ANOTHER

    I work at a hospital as an nurse and my coworker sales protandium. I was taking it for a few months and was thinking about taking it again (only stopped because of finances). I have read over the research and it is very intersting. The only thing that makes me a little bit nervous about it is our immune systems are alreayd over active so it worries me about taking something that can potentially boost the immune system more. That is the only thing that worries me- other than that I've heard amazing things about it. Even went to one of the protandium conferences. Glad you had such great results on it!

    Your post kind of sounds like a sales pitch?!

    I am just now reading this and researching it. I juice, take a multivit, B12 and Vit D but want more. This is something I will try. Thanks.

     All the ingredients that make up Protandim can be easily found online. I decided to look to see if it is a good value for the money. I found many places selling Protandim $45 for 30 pills online. That’s about $1.50 a pill. As for the five ingredients in Protandim here's what they are, and their prices on Amazon:--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Milk Thistle - Available at Amazon.com for $22.48 for 400 pills - Milk Thistle Extract, Maximum Strength, 200-Count Bottles (Pack of 2). The cost is 5.6 cents per pill.------------------------------------- Tumeric - Available at Amazon for $15.25 for 240 pills - Turmeric 720 mg 240 Gelatin Caps - This works out to be 6.3 cents per pill. Of course you can just get this huge jar of Turmeric powder for $5.28.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Green Tea - Available at Amazon for $12.72 for 250 pills - NOW Foods Green Tea Extract, 250 Capsules / 400mg - That works out to be 5 cents a pill. Green Tea itself (in its natural liquid form) is very cheap too.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Ashwagandha - Available at Amazon for $24.29 for 240 pills - Planetary Herbals Full Spectrum Ashwagandha (Winter Cherry) 570 mg Tablets' 120 tablets (Pack of 2) - That's the most expensive so far at 10 cents a pill------------------------------------------------------------------------------------. Bacopa - Once again on Amazon, Planetary Formulas Bacopa Extract, 225 mg Tablets, 240 tablets is $15.64 - That's about 6.5 cents a tablet. (Note: All prices are accurate as of May 23th, 2013. Pricing will vary slightly depending when you are reading this.) - See more at: http://www.lazymanandmoney.com/lifevantage-protandim-scam/#sthash.tt7LOrCu.dpuf

    I was diagnosed Sept 30th.  My neurologis also told me to take Vitamin D (my levels were slightly low).  She also suggested Flax Seed Oil supplements. Fish oil is something she said is good too, so I am sure the krill oil is a good idea.  Not sure about the Potassium or Vitamin E.  A good muli vitamin is always good for overall health
  • Maura_G
    I take Vit D, Centrum Sivler, Calcium with magnisium, fish oil and evening primrose (helps iwth inflamation) B12 and Vit E. 

    When I was having cramps I drank pure coconut water, you can buy flavors but make sure it's natural flavors not added suger.  Suger cauases inflamation.  Vita Coco makes a great pineapple and tangarine flavor.  It is loaded with potasium.  I also used to drink tonic water and take a suplement for leg cramps.  Both these have quinine in them. 
    And drink tons of water.  I've  heard, don't know if this is true, but people who drink lots of water have less side effects from meds.  I think the nurse told me this when I went for steriod infusions.

    Seemed like an advertisement to me and I clicked on the link.  Surprise, you are selling this stuff.  How about some real proof to your claims?  You said you improved 40% in 30 days, the exact claim this company is making.  I certainly hope you've actually benefited from this stuff and are not taking advantage of these desperate people, in an unfortunate situation.

    I agree;)

    Coconut water helps me - I get deydrated easily. I used to chug Gatorade all the time, but it has so many chemicals and colorings in it. :-p

    I do have a favorite brand because of the taste, but any of the brands will help replace electrolytes.

    Thanks for writing this..I had a sense about it too and just ignored her.  Sickening.
