I went to the site and found that it omitted a lot of information and, as a result, can be greatly misleading to anyone who is not intimately familiar with MS.

Specifically, the "signs and symptoms" of MS or "indicators" made the diagnosis seem very cut and dried, without any mention of the extensive diagnostic process and the lack of any definitive test for MS. Similarly, the mention of only Lyme Disease as an alternate diagnosis ignores the many other possibilities, potentially misleading a novice in the area of MS.

What really chapped my rear end, though, was the mention of long-term antibiotics as a treatment and the exclusion of the ABCRs, and the focusing in on the Swank Diet and Aspartame avoidance as if they are absolutes, and not theories (aspartame avoidance being more of an urban legend in my humble opinion).

Then, this website offers to make a health analysis based solely on information submitted via the website. I see major trouble brewing here.

I didn't explore it long enough to see what its hook is. But, I wouldn't rely on it as a source of reliable MS information.
