Just visited the Alternative doc, again, so have an update.

I will provide one or two links to products, here, this time, too.
First, a little more background on this doctor and his practice...
His office is always full. Many MS patients. But, many young children with Autism. He believes that both MS and Autism are caused by Lyme Disease. And, of course, I live in one of the Lyme Disease capitols of the world, so, he sure has the market available to him.
After this last visit, I am truly convinced of his sincerity and not wanting to take advantage of anyone. But, am just not certain his treatments actually do work. This is what he recommends for me:
1. 10 consecutive days of hyperbaric O2 treatments
2. Samento (Cat's Claw) Tincture
3. B-12 Methylcobalamin Injections
4. A product called Heavy Detox
7. The Seasonal Rescue product (that I sent you the URL for)

Although, just once i would love to get some placebo effect...
When I asked him to justify hyperbaric O2 treatments, he said that it would help lesions heal, ward off anaerobes, and help my anemia. Am open to this possibility. He also claims that it is a popular MS treatment in the UK. Not according to any of the searches I've done here, it isn't.
As far as B12 injections for my anemia goes; I test within mid-low normal ranges, but he does not accept the conventional standards. Another alternative doc, that I've consulted with over the past two years warns against high doses of B12. Because methylated or not, he claims that non-organic toxins that may be present in the body, get methylated into, 100 times more toxic, organic forms. So I told him, no on B12 injections. And, that I would just start taking the liquid chlorophyll, that my nurse-midwife's nutritionist had recommended, years ago. It had seemed to work, as it brought my lab values up high enough for what was required for the homebirth.
Have not agreed to taking any of the supplements he recommends, except the Samento. He claims that it will help prevent more viral replication of the EBV:
Only one drop a day in a glass of water. Because he warns me that I'll herx from it, if I don't go slow with increasing the dosage. I will research some of those other supplements, tho. Maybe even try to find more suggestions on hyperbaric O2, as well.
Oh, and this doctor does not recommend antibiotic treatment, either. As usual, am left with lots more questions and few answers
Am just glad I get some partial insurance reimbursement for this alternative doctor, while I continuously attempt to figure out what to do.
