What was most interesting to me was that the researchers are admitting they really don't understand MS progression.
And as Dr. Peter Stys would say, that's because they don't understand MS at all, and are "barking up the wrong tree."general-discussion-f1/topic22388.html
The "big stories" in MS treatment out of ECTRIMS (that were picked up by the press) were all "alternative."
Vitamin D levels matter, exercise is important and beneficial, and too much salt and processed foods are bad.
This is is HUGE shift from when I first started following ECTRIMS meetings and research seven years ago on this forum.
We got a big eyeroll from the neuro when we asked her about lifestyle, exercise, nutrition and vitamin D level monitoring. But he's still biking, skiing, and working--with no MS progression (7 years later)http://ccsviinms.blogspot.com/search?q= ... connection
