I agree, it's difficult to comment on a magazine article when you can't access it.
But I do agree in her assessment of the current approved drugs that are available to try and treat MS. They don't provide all that much of a consistent efficacy, their cost is beyond expensive and the risks and side effects are becoming larger as the producers make these medications more radically effect the way your immune system operates.
They are treating MS as though it is an auto-immune disease and nobody has ever been able to prove that theory. The huge variance in how the drugs effect the patients supports, in my opinion, that MS's cause is something different and the immune system is but one small part of the equation.
