MS and supplements





























Image Source: GALINABELLA

By Trevis Gleason

First, let me start the week by apologizing for my absence for part of last week. I was traveling on business and was just wrecked at the end of each day. I’m still not back 100 percent, but I’m back enough to jot a few words down.

Many of us use complementary treatments for our multiple sclerosis. Whether they are simple things like stretching and yoga or more radical like the Master Cleanse diet or bee sting therapy. I’d like to talk today about something kind of in the middle: supplements.

As simple as a daily multi-vitamin tab, as complicated as doctor-injected hormones, supplemental therapy has really taken off in the MS world. I’m having a good look (with doctors and my naturopath) at what might fit me best.

Right now, I take a daily multi, calcium, chondroitin, fish or flax oil (I alternate back and forth) and that’s about it. I’ve been tested for low Vitamin D and I’m okay there.

My blood work is great, so it’s not like I’m trying to overcome some deficiency, I just feel like it’s something I can do that’s good for my whole body’s health, not just for my MS.

I know (because many of you have proffered the information) that some of you take quite a fistful of dietary supplements; I’d like to know which ones you take and for what purpose?

I’ll keep this post short because I can feel a lot of comments coming on!

Wishing you and your family the best of health.

Cheers,
Trevis
