Which is why I think we've got to go back to basics and start from the best estimation we can make of the circumstances in which our DNA evolved. We shouldn't get too nerdy about it, However much I go on about the benefits of full body sun exposure I don't take it to extremes. Sure we must recognise the importance of good quality sleep but we all want to enjoy life and entertain friends so compromises have to be made. I think if you just look at the drugs side of MS treatment you are not doing the best you can, in the same way if you look at diabetes, heart disease pharmaceutical procedures they aren't necessarily in the patients best interests and piling one drug regime on another doesn't mean the outcome is regarding Quality of Life or Mortality is any better. You just spend a lot more money and enjoy more side effects.CaveMan wrote:I firmly believe it is like the car crash analogy, there is not a singular item and we should not just be looking for the singular item relating to a specific autoimmune condition, but what are the conditions that open an opportunity for an autoimmune condition to present.
That said I still think it's worth making the effort to try to keep up with what the latest thinking is an applying common sense as to whether it's likely to achieve anything and also consider if their are other ways of achieving the same objective.
But back to the car analogy.
If we want our car to run optimally and reliably then the starting point is the makers recommendations and specifications. We don't have that for the human body BUT we can and should consider the human evolutionary process and make our understanding of that the starting point for optimal sun/bright light exposure, Vitamin D, magnesium, omega 3 ratio, melatonin levels.
