POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND MS

Postby priyal1 » Thu Aug 15, 2013 5:30 am

I suffer from MS and was diagnosed at 14. I am currently 20 and I found that every video related to MS is patronising. I have created a short documentary on the condition and how having a positive attitude helps. The documentary can be found here

Welcome to this is MS, priyal.

Your short documentary has many good points – a positive attitude is very important.

Dr. Denise Faustman, Director of the Immunobiology Laboratory in Boston, seems to have found a way to restore insulin production and, thereby, reverse type I diabetes.
In the following interview she is talking about using multiple BCG vaccines: http://www.myfoxboston.com/story/192352 ... t-diabetes

Here is a Bloomberg article with more details: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-08-0 ... or-tb.html

I know that this vaccine (for tuberculosis) is required for school-age children in the UK (I believe it contributes to the prevalence of MS there.); have the people in your documentary received the BCG vaccine? If Dr. Faustman can restart insulin secretion in type I diabetics, perhaps the vaccine causes overproduction in initially healthy people with a normal, appropriate amount of insulin and then (if excess production does initiate MS,) this group develops MS.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"

The reports referenced in lyndacarol's post both end by mentioning the research being done in Italy with the BCG vaccine and MS. The researchers are, according to the printed article, having success in preventing "progressions of brain lesions in patients with advanced stages of MS" and, in Dr. Denise Faustman's words, "reversing Multiplte Sclerosis." Dr. Faustman indicates that the mechanism of action (at least with respect to diabetes) is in the vaccine's ability to increase production of some iteration of TNF, a cytokine. I understand, from research, that TNF family is a group of cytokines, and that TNF-alpha specifically is a neurotoxin. I also understand that a cobalamin (B-12) deficiency is accompanied by overproduction of TNF-alpha, a bad thing. My son, diagnosed with MS, has until this point self-treated with diet and supplementation, with my full support. Those of you who are also supplementing would be well aware of the need for vitamin B-12. I would assume she speaks of a different TNF. I would appreciate if anyone with more knowledge on the subject could elaborate on the TNF that is beneficial in these studies.
