Natural remedies

Been doing a fair bit of research but wondered if anyone has any ideas through their own experience.

I’m doing as much as I can with food etc to help my immune system but wondered if anyone had any ideas about natural energy?
Fatigue is kicking my butt at the moment…anyone got any tried and tested natural energy drinks or specific foods that actually help?

@nutshell88 I’m only really thinking about immune system as i work in a school and catch every germ going! I’m finding that any time I get a cut or something it gets infected

I follow the best bet diet, I feel so much better when on the diet, also l have much more energy when I’m outside in the fresh air and exercising, l also take lots of supplements i find taking high doses of vitamin c 3,000mg per day really helps with me fatigue

@staceyelena I follow the Wahl’s Protocol diet. Dr. Wahl’s has MS and she came up with a diet that has given her back her life. I ordered the book through Amazon years ago. It helped me with my energy immediately. In the book she goes over the why behind the diet and how it changes your life. Hopefully it will help you as it has helped me.

Similar – primarily stick with the “Real Food” diet but in general avoid gluten as the others in my house can’t tolerate it and have fish (salmon caught in Alaska) once a week otherwise grass fed beef and organic chicken. Pretty much all organic food and eggs from our own organic fed chicksn. https://www.100daysofrealfood.com/real-food-defined-a-k-a-the-rules/

Trying to up my water 😉 get enough sleep and avoid stress…

Should mention I was started on Ocrevus last fall, take over the counter (in US) Vitamin D, Mg, fish oil and Hi Cap B complex

I can’t possibly take in all the food that Dr Wahl does but I was reminded by Paleo Boss Lady ( a gal you can check out on you tube, recently interviewed in Life of Seb you tube channel) that Dr Wahl is close to 6′ tall and for those of us more around 5′ we may need to scale that down a bit 😉

Thanks everyone! I have to say, I’ve struggled since my diagnosis but having somewhere to go with real people and real answers is amazing!

the moment I got my diagnosis my friends and a family tried to get me onto Dr Wahl’s diet and bought me all the books. We also bought a slow cooker and upped our intake of vegetables and meat dramatically. I’m not the best at sticking to the Wahl’s Protocol when it comes to all the little rules but I’ve completely cut out gluten (I treat myself as celiac) and milk of any sort. I also try to reduce my intake of oats and any food that isn’t fresh, although I’m nit perfect at it.
My fatigue has improved since getting out of hospital, although this also coincided with lots of my symptoms improving and as I haven’t had MS long I wouldn’t be able to confirm that this is down to the diet.
I also take Vitim B and D supplements every morning as well as cod liver oil.

What I can tell you is that Dr Wahl believes her protocol helps fatigue and she did a clinical trial on it that seems to bear out her hypothesis, although it was a small case study with not many participants. In general it’s pretty healthy and won’t do you any harm.

I work in the care profession with very vulnerable people.
To keep my immune system up I take Echinacea either in herbal tea form or on the onset of a cold or a family member starting one Echinacea drops. I gargle tea tree essential oil ( 1 drop in a full glass of water ) if my throat starts to feel sore. It works every time .
Ginger, liquorice and peppermint are great anti inflammatories used in food and tea. I can abate a headache usually by drinking a few ginger teas. Pineapple is another great one. It helps my body to feel less achy.
