These are some of the resources I’ve used in the last few years as I’ve recovered from MS. I hope you can find them useful as well!

Green matcha tea is an excellent source of polyphenols, chlorophyll and minerals. Matcha tea supports detoxification and healthier mitochondria. Good sources include the following:
This is a link (iHerb.com) that was passed on to me by a colleague with MS. It is a vegetarian source of omega-3 fatty acids, which acts as an alternative to fish oil.
Direct MS is a nonprofit organization devoted to examining the link between diet and multiple sclerosis.
The National Institutes of Health and the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) conduct and support research, train CAM researchers, and provide information about CAM to the public. Complementary and alternative medicine includes health systems, practices and products that are not considered part of conventional medicine.
This is site provides information about the Institute for Functional Medicine. Here you can likely find physicians and other providers (worldwide!) who also believe that MS is a result of the interaction between toxic exposures, infections, food allergies, genetics and individual stressors.
The George Mateljan Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making the world a healthier place by providing you with cutting-edge information about why the World’s Healthiest Foods are the key to vibrant health and energy and how you can easily make them a part of your lifestyle. I found their website to be particularly helpful when I was first researching the link between diet and health.
This is a link to Day 6 Bicycles. They have several advantages for someone with MS or other health issues. First, a Day 6 Bicycle is an upright recumbent, meaning that you have a backrest. Second, you can put both feet on the ground while sitting on the bicycle. Third, you can add an electric motor, which drives the chain, not the wheel hub. That means you can maintain an aerobic workout by pedaling and using the electric motor to provide a little extra power going up hills. I have added the electric motor to my bike, which has made bicycling to work possible. I pedal hard so I get a good workout but I also use the motor to augment my pedaling so I can get to work in 25 minutes rather than an hour.
