Given what you described here, I'd think it would be better for both of you to indeed pool your resources and live together, away from the rest of your toxic family. She'd need to find a doctor in your area, but since you are already there, that wouldn't be impossible. How old are the children? It might be good to let them finish up this school year and move over the summer. That few months would also give you time to investigate what other resources might be available to them and to you. Some states have subsidies for people without resources that go beyond the basic social security; have you looked in to food stamps, subsidized health care, those sorts of things?
I can't and won't speak to "nutrituional therapies". If you research the internet, you'll find lots of "diets" and "supplements" that are supposed to help. I am a firm believer in simply eating a balanced diet, with emphasis on fruits and veggies, fish, and not a lot of red meat...a basic "good for your general health" diet, and exercise.
As for MS treatments, do you know if she is on anything now?
