A good friend of mine manages his MS and MS induced diabetes with a variety of natural products such as cider vinegar, cayenne, cinnamon or possibly nutmeg (i forget which) and MJ. And a strict diet.

He looks pretty good for it IMO, all things considered.

He spent a great deal of time reading into this prior to starting it, and a lot of experimentation was needed to get his quantities/ingredients "right" and balancing his stomach acids and so forth.

His doctor warned him against it very strongly, but was shocked when he had to concede that the diabetes was being very effectively managed without Insulin.

I don't recommend that anyone try this "willy-nilly" as such, do your own homework and take your own risks as you see fit.

Just my own anecdotal mumbo jumbo

One of the most strange thing about MS is the fact that MS sufferers have alway low level of uric acid in blood. Also, persons with high level of uric acid in blood never get MS. You will never hear of a patient having gout and MS simultaneously.

The fact is that uric acid is the most abundant antioxidant in blood.

Would it be too far fetched to speculate the antioxidant uric acid produce protection against MS instead of saying that low level of uric acid is the result of MS?

tl/dr:SPECULATING about trace minerals.

For what it's worth, I feel that it may be fruitful to look at the role trace minerals play in this.

I started to investigate this topic some time ago.The father of a friend of mine, fought valiantly some form of neuro-degenerative disease that ended up closing this chapter of his life.The doctors were unable to figure out exactly a proper diagnosis, as his health slowly declined. I've looked into some different information, to do with the bodies digestion.(Crohn's disease runs in his family) Thankfully, my friend has been able to manage really well, though seeing his father fight, and knowing the shorter life span of his relatives, has encouraged me to look very hard at different risk factors.

I feel our modern lifestyle plays into these kinds of illness.More traditional lifestyles encouraged eating lower down the food chain.Junk food, and additives weren't nearly as easily accessible.Eating more naturally probably includes a wider range of trace minerals in the diet.Hopefully, this results in our bodies having an easier time healing themselves.A lack of these minerals, and higher exposure to an imbalance of toxins are probably packing a one-two punch.

Specifically, the advent of widespread synthetic fertilizers, electrical transmission in our culture, and cooking with aluminum vessels come to mind when I think about neuro-degenerative disease.Eating increased levels of naturally grown vegetables (raw) in a balanced diet, shoring up one's digestive system and avoiding aluminum cookware may help increase the odds of managing symptoms in illness like these.
