maybe I'll get a complimentary treatment thread started here. I asked Jimmy to add her zinc info.
Sorry Kim is getting wonked after exercising. She's doing the right thing keeping her body moving, but if deoxyginated blood is having a hard time getting back to her heart, that could create some fatigue.
Certainly a baby aspirin can't hurt (not so great on the stomach lining)...but there are many, many things MS patients can do to keep their circulatory systems moving and healthy. That was what the endothelial program I wrote up was all about:
Low fat diet, proteolytic enzymes, antioxidants, regular exercise, meditation, sunshine/vitamin D all keep the blood from hypercoagulating and keep the endothelial layer of blood vessels healthy. This is the program I sent to Dr. John Cooke at Stanford last year (he is a researcher on endothelial health in cardiovascular disease) and he is the man that put us in touch with Dr. Dake.
I believe this is why so many of the complimentary/alternative treatments MSers use keep people healthy and in remission. They are dilating blood vessels and maintaing endothelial function with with prokarin, good diets, exercise, supplements, LDN, etc.
Jeff was "stable" and not progressing on this program...but I don't think he would have found long term healing without dealing with his stenosis. Some people (with more benign MS/less blockage) can do just fine without any further intervention-
