Treatment progress with other therapies

Many people with MS use complementary and alternative medicine. Depending on the treatments, the evidence is weak or absent. Examples are a dietary regimen (avoidance of Gluten), heavy supplementation with Vitamin D3, herbal medicine (including the use of medical cannabis), hyperbaric oxygenation and self-infection with hookworm (known generally as helminthic therapy). The helminic therapy of infection with Trichuris suis ova is under investigation as of 2012. Epidemiological and experimental evidence, as per a report in Wikipedia, suggests parasitic infection may protect against MS. (We however, have serious reservations about this!)
