Hi, I was diagnosed with MS in Feb, 2015. I want to know what lifestyle changes should I adopt. How much Vitamin D and fish oil should I take on a daily basis? Which exercises can I do other than yoga? Will too much exercise flare up my symptoms?
Lifestyle changes. can be a big help in dealing w/any health issue. You need changes tailored to your situation. Vitamin D and Marine Fish Oil sound good but please see a nutritionist or nutritionally oriented physician first. drhoffman.com will give you some info. Also, a personal trainer or yoga teacher can get you started on a good exercise plan. Peace and good health.

Answers. Would highly recommend Concierge or INBOX consult, but here are a few comments: Use a disease modifying agent, take enough Vit D-3 to get blood levels about 50-70 ng/ml, follow a low fat/low salt diet, do aerobic exercise about thrice weekly. Exercise may over heat you so pace yourself. Make certain that your basic medication is potent, discuss with MS focused neurologist.
