Hi, everyone. I've had MS for at least 12 years, possibly 17. I became pretty dedicated to the "natural way" of handling this since my diagnosis: no meat, no dairy products, less than 30g of fat a day, no artificial anything (yeah, no fun) but it's kept me relapse-free for 12 years. In Dec., an MRI showed 3 "active" lesions--though I still feel really good most of the time and work out every day. Still my doctor(s) want me to start Avonex. I'm scared to death that jacking around with my immune system (and with medicine) will "activate" everything. Any health nuts out there who are taking Avonex, though they totally believe in natural lifestyle? I would be so grateful for your advice and insight. All blessings, Talia.
