  1. Thank you for another great video Dr. B 👍🏻🙌🏻👏🏻💪🏻

    1. @Aaron Boster MD and I appreciate your endless knowledge of this disease. This is all new to me and I’m learning and I appreciate learning from you.

    2. Thanks MiKe! I appreciate your support! #WeHaveMS

  2. I take Vitamin D 3, dont smoke nomore , eat very seldom meat, drink alcohol very seldom, go often out for a walk and take in Germany MS medication Tecfidera and Fampyra

  3. None of my neurologist want to give me intravenous and I have insurance. Gelenya not working for me my left Eye is going down Neuro op doc is Bad .

  4. Thank you Sir ❤️❤️❤️

    1. Most welcome

  5. Dr. Boster, what about coconut oil? Is this an acceptable fat?

  6. What’s make your arms,started to get num or tingly in your hands,while you sleeping or standing UP ???…

  7. 💉copaxone yay

  8. Hey there Doc, I noticed you mentioned eggs being ok to eat; as it stands I eat a lot of eggs & try to make sure I go for the best I can get, usually pasture-raised or organic.

    I’ve also heard others say that people with MS should not eat eggs, so what is the deal with eggs from your standpoint, truthfully; should I continue as I am or do I need to be mindful of my consumption of eggs?

  9. Your comment about the burger not rotting worries and scares me
    Thanks Dr. Boster!!!

  10. U have mentioned biotin that supposedly helps to slow down the progression of ms for patients with progressive ms
    I also read a few articles that say completely the opposite. So who to believe ?

  11. Thank you for your great information I am looking for something to help me with SPMS I already take Vit. D3, Alpha Lipoic Acid, B12. I’m on Ocrevus every 6 months.

    1. Hi JuNae I’m transitioning to SPMS and am thinking of taking Alpha Lipoic Acid too. How are you finding it? Do you take 1200mg like in the trial for it?

  12. What about magnesium for leg spasticity? Any research you can share?

  13. Hi Dr B! Can you give us any information on Sublingual NMNs? Can they help MS patients and is it something you would recommend to your patients?

    1. It is a supplement made by Alive by Nature. It is supposed to increase your body’s production of stem cells.

    2. what is sublingual NMNs Brooke?

  14. Please plrease please talk about Dr. Gregor. My friend is a nurse and tells me I should try his diet for MS🙄

  15. Hey Dr. B! I have a deficiency of CD8 T cells (genetic) which prevents my immune system from adequately killing my EBV infected B cells, so I also have an elevated CD4/CD8 ratio. Is there any way I can increase my body’s production of CD8 T cells? I think Ocrevus is great for this as it kills mature B cells, but I’d really like to know if there’s something I can take to increase my Cd8 cells specifically. Thanks 🙂

  16. Dr. B: I cannot tell you how many times people have told me that they had MS and they cured themselves with xyz. I don’t believe it for a minute.

    1. Yup.

  17. Thank you. Good to hear this because people kept saying there’s a wonder pill. One went on to say that if I do a massage with someone he knows, I won’t be disabled anymore. Then another told me not to take medicines or DMD, but only natural supplements. This is really helpful. Whenever I want to take any supplements like magnesium, I’d ask my specialist first. Real food? My husband and I have been going on a journey of cooking organic, less salty, less sugary food. What we cook would most definitely go bad the next day (the latest) if we don’t refrigerate. As for fruits, my husband has tried to buy fruits each week after I had another relapse while on DMD. By the way, Biotin 600mg and D3 (now increased to 2000IU+225mcg) is prescribed by my specialist for my case.

    1. Are you sure it’s 600mg of Biotin that your doc recommended?

  18. Can I ask for your opinion about this article in regards to Biotin? Were you aware of this?

    1. @Aaron Boster MD Thanks. I realize there are also newer articles, but this one popped up and I thought I’d ask, also for others who frequent google. Love your content and your commitment to the MS community and positive message!!! Struggling with my GF to get a proper Dx of progressive bilateral lower extremity pain of 10+ years. Why is it SO hard? THANK YOU FOR THE INFO ON BIOTIN AFFECTING LABS. How long do you have to go off biotin to get labs back to normal?
      Thanks again.

    2. Howdy Mike. This is an abstract presented as a poster at ECTRIMS. The number is small and the results, although provocative, are not to be accepted as gospel yet. To date, the 2 published studies on biotin in MS support its slowing PPMS disability and rate of brain volume loss in PPMS. There is a large properly designed clinical trial that will soon read out on Biotin. That should provide a more solid answer.

  19. Great link to eat healthy

    1. Great link, thanks for sharing Laura!

  20. Howdy Dr Aaron, thank you for posting and taking the time,very informative video as always take care till next time, oh very true about the water liquid gold 👍😁

  21. Heart smart aka the Cardiologist’s diet… If it tastes good spit it out.

    1. lol

  22. I have to add that with my meds i certainly had consipation but i found a probiotic that fixed this abd for good. GoLive. Small packet mixed with water/juice every 3 days…..Now Im normal 😉 I tried several others but this was the one that worked.

  23. Question- I have a hard time eating. I eat like a bird but with fatigue factoring in it becomes tough….Now what? 😉

    1. maybe talk to a registered dietitian about how to plan several (e.g. 6) small, calorie dense meals (e.g. nuts) for each day.

  24. I am so glad that you spoke on these “supplements”. I already take a one a day vitamin. I hv to get back to taking my biotin. I hv to get vitamin D2 back. I was already taking vitamin D2. I need to see if I can get D3 instead. I try to do my best when eating. I try to eat as healthy as I can. I eat a lot of chicken and now I’ve started eating fish as well. I exercise daily. I don’t hv a vehicle so I don’t drive. I will be back on my “Copaxone”.I’ve always kept in my mind that ppl with MS die frm a heart related illness so I try to do gd by me. I don’t want to leave this earth unexpectedly. I will be looking into the meds that you spoke on. I actually play Pokemon Go daily. This is a game that I am very fond of. When I “chase” Pokemon, I am traveling and exercising. I started playing this game as a bonding tool for my son and I. Being outside exploring different places, I am doing my very own “Physical Therapy”. I know my own body and when my body tells me to stop, I do. That was the issue with regular physical therapy. My body didn’t really like those excercises all the time. I also love drinking water. Especially when you quench that 🚰 thirst. I also love eating fruits and veggies. Thank you for another informative video Dr B.

  25. Thanks for the video, very useful as always. A few days ago in the Dutch news 500 sleep-specialists were warning about the use of melatonin to enhance sleep. Their message was that it is very good at recalibrating the biological clock, but that it could disturb this clock by as much as one hour per day of taking it for falling asleep. They also said that it might help you fall asleep 10minutes faster, but that the negative effects far outweigh the positive ones. What is your take on that?

    1. I present this information to help empower you to talk to your provider about what makes the most sense for you. I hope it helps Bram!

  26. Thanks again Dr Boster! I’m just curious if you’ve ever heard about dairy being a bad food for MS. I’ve followed this for a long time. The supplements I take are D3, K2, Lutien, Circumen, vitamin E, and B12. Used to take others but dropped them after returning from Japan where many people take no supplements at all.

    1. Scott Davidson /DOES all these vitamins help to prevent numbness,tingling in your fingers ???

  27. Great video! Love the tips!

  28. Sheesh, this is blowing my keto diet up I don’t know what to think!

  29. ❤️

  30. I was having a hard time getting my D to up normal. A friend suggested adding K2, it would help my body process the D3, and, it worked! I got above 50 in just a few months.

    1. D3

  31. Great video! I miss french fries and Dr. Pepper, but I doubt my body does. lol

  32. Great video again! I just wanted to comment and ask if you will be doing a video on paediatric multiple sclerosis? 😊 Thank you for all the hard work you put into making videos. They are super informative!

    1. Reptiles& Rats I would love to see that video too!

  33. Hi Dr.boster I really like this video. This video i give it a thumbs up. I really learn alot from this video.

  34. Thank you! This video is very informative. I have a question about the healthy diet tho. I know eating no sugar and no process food helps tremendously our health but it also helps with loosing weight witch is good. But in my case since my dx I lost a lot of weight and I am under my healthy weight now. How can we eat healthy without loosing weight? Whenever I quit soda I loose automatically. I tried increasing calories and exercises to gain muscles but it makes not much of a difference. Are the meds responsible for us loosing weight? I know some people with Ms gain but I am not the only one that noticed the opposite.

    1. I think that Coinsides with us losing body mass.

  35. Thank you for making people aware that you should go to doctor about vitamins you’re planning to take. My family have a weird thing where we just don’t absorb vitamin D. I need to check my levels to see if I’m weird like this. No other numbers are affected, only the vitamin D. But if I didn’t discuss with my family and with my doctor about it I wouldn’t have known.
    Otherwise I was told a general multivitamin was safe but all levels were within normal limits with only my potassium dropping one point below ideal at my last meeting.

    I see a lot of people swearing by all these supplements without talking to their doctor or checking their levels and it worries me.

    I will say working with a neutricianist helped a lot with confidence in eating. My husband has severe allergies which led to severely limited diet, now we are more aware on how to test for a new food and allergy. To the point we’ve tried coconut (one that came up on his list) and it seems it may be certain forms.

    Random thought. Would you recommend allergy testing for foods etc?

  36. Thank you

    1. YW

  37. Vitamin D and Vitamin D 3?

    1. @Aaron Boster MD TY

    2. Vitamin D3 is a TYPE of vitamin D.

  38. Thanks for making this video. I tried taking vitamins while I was awaiting health coverage. I had no idea what I was doing but I took about 25 pills a day.

  39. I was put on 50,000 mg of vitamin D shortly after being diagnosed & still taking it! Honestly though I’m still not sure what, if anything, it’s doing to help me but especially in the summer months I’m not outside often so that alone makes it worth it to me. I’ve been on Adderall for fatigue & it’s the fourth one & only one that literally destroys my appetite! Other than sweets my taste buds don’t work anymore so I know I’m not eating enough of any kind of food. Thanks Dr. B!

  40. I recently found your videos. Thank you so much for all the great info. I take Vit d 4000iu, vit b complex, and CBD oil 20mg twice a day. Have you done any videos on CBD oil for MS?

  41. My vid D level was as low as a 3 once

    1. Oh, believe me I suffered and it was my rheumatologist who found it in my blood work. That was a couple years ago.. Still take bit D prescription now and also eat really well and still only just “in range” but feel much better. No longer feel my bones may snap although they still hurt

    2. wowzers!

  42. Thanks so much Dr. B! I am so glad to see you doing more videos on diet and supplements. Giving MS patients information about what we can do help ourselves (outside of medication) is important and empowering. I wanted to share this that was published recently. I would appreciate your thoughts on it
