I eat a Yogurt every morning for breakfast to increase my patsisum (yes I know I killed the spelling) then I take a One A Day Weight Smart because it increases my Metabolism and gives me energy to fight the MS fatigue and then I take a Vitiamum B Complex which converts the rest the my meals into instant engery for the rest of the day. Does all of the this reduce the MS activity, I can't tell you for sure, but it does help me to live my life and not let the MS stop me and ideally that is all we can do.

You are right, not allowing the ms to stop you is the most important thing. I just started taking Modiodal pills. They are supposed to make the fatigue easier to handle but so far I don't know...

I have ried the high fiber, lots of vitamins, vegan, carb loaded, low gluten and now the high protein. I am not sure that diet can help alot with Multiple Sclerosis. Maybe for some people it can, but for me personally it hasn't. Good nutrition and eating habits are essential to managing your MS symptoms and your overall health. Many people gain weight after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, due to inactivity, depression or any number of factors. I stil eat very healthy and try to exercise. I walk alot.

The local ms society where I live recommend that we eat a lot of fish (for the omega 3) and good vegetable oils and cut back on saturated fat and meat. (Red meat is supposed to be worst, white such as chicken is OK once in a while.) And of course a lot of fruit and vegetables. This diet is supposed to reduce ms activity. Don't know if it's true or not but it sure does make you feel better to eat right. In fact after I started this diet my symptoms get worse when I once in a while break it and eat red meat, rich cheese and unhealthy snacks. So I'm going to stay with it. I was just curious to know if ms associations in other countries have the same ideas.

I bought this one book that was suppose to be a MS Diet but I have just stuff with low carbs high protein myself and I make myself do some kind of excersize daily. Like walking for 10 minutes a day I time myself and walk inside since my ground isn't very level. Best of luck to you.
