Overview MS and vitamin D

Clinical interventions have shown that Vitamin D can prevent, treat, and even cure Multiple Sclerosis, at a tiny fraction of the cost of the drugs now used to treat it, and without side effects.

Summary: lack of consensus on how much to prevent, treat, or cure MS

  • How much Vitamin D to prevent many diseases - such as MS
  • How much Vitamin D is needed to treat MS? There is currently no agreement
       The recommendations range from 40 to 100 ng - which can result of a dose ranging from 3,000 to 20,000 IU/day
  • How Vitamin D is needed to Cure MS?: It appears that 20,000-140,000 IU daily may be needed to CURE the disease
       You must be under the supervision of a doctor who knows what to watch for in your individual situation.
       High doses of Vitamin D cannot be used as a monotherapy.
       You will need to adjust the cofactors: Typically increasing Magnesium and Vitamin K2, and reducing Calcium intake.
       Your doctor will monitor these and might increase your intake of Vitamins B2, C, as well as Omega-3

   And lists of items which are in 2 categories, such as: MS & Meta-Analysis, MS & Intervention, MS and Genetics, MS and UV

Forums and organizations are endorsing Vitamin D for MS

Books on MS and Vitamin D

Multiple Sclerosis and (lots of) Vitamin D - book by patient on Coimbra protocol - Feb 2016 contains protocol description

Vitamin D Protocol used by Dr. Coimbra for Multiple Sclerosis etc.
Snips as of April 2016 http://www.vitamindprotocol.com/dr.-coimbra-s-ms-protocol.html

  • 1,000 IU's vitamin D per kilogram as a first approximation
    (apparently increased/decreased depending of resulting vitamin D blood level)
  • Vitamin B2, magnesium glycinate, boron, chromium picolinate, Omega 3 DHA, Zinc, Methylcobalamin form of B12, Choline, etc.
  • Lack of B12 may affect 10%–15% of the general population and may be the most prevalent genetic risk factor for several human diseases
  • Discontinue eating or drinking dairy products or calcium enriched foods or beverages, also no Ca supplements
  • Drink as least 2.5 liters [85 ounces] of fluids, preferably water
  • Required Tests:​ Vitamin D, Parathyroid, Blood calcium, urinary calcium

Genes, MS, and Vitamin D

FACT: At least some MS is associated with a gene variant
FACT: People with MS need higher levels of vitamin D to treat the symptoms
SPECULATION: Those people with the gene variant need higher levels of vitamin D in the blood to prevent/treat MS

Top 20 diseases related by genes to MS ( many of which are associated with low vitamin D)
Items in both categories MS and Genetics are listed here:

Items in both categories MS and Vitamin D Receptor Gene are listed here:

MS occurs in a vicious cycle with vitamin D: low D leads to MS which lowers vitamin D

As MS progresses, MSers tend to stop working
fewer than 30% are still working after 7 years
