If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

ElMarino--To the #3 item in your list of conditions that have changed for people today, I would add that most people have work that is less physically demanding, i.e., people get less physical exercise today.

Both #3 and #5 would affect the level of glucose in the bloodstream and, consequently, the level of insulin, too.

Hi WW,
You're absolutely right and you are not being a defeatist but I'm thinking more along the line of possible overlooked considerations and not things that can be proven causes of MS.

Using "my" Hygiene Hypothesis as an example, HH is far from being proven, but was not even a consideration through the longest part of MS research history, yet I think reading the HH theretical suspicions are fascinating in that something so directly and completely affecting humanity could disappear below our radar and fall through the cracks as a consideration as a/the cause of MS earlier.

If nothing else, the current consideration of the loss of "evolutionary normal" conditions from developed populations should serve as notice to all of us that there UNDOUBTEDLY are conditions which might have led to increased incidence of MS that the researchers hadn't considered to consider and maybe it falls upon us to raise other possible considerations for the first time :idea:

Inclined Therapy and Multiple Sclerosis Improvements

Postby AndrewKFletcher » Tue Sep 08, 2009 1:37 am

Right here on this forum under your very noses Foreverspring has posted her own account of what is happening to her at 68 years young and everyone chooses to ignore it, just like you will ignore Debee and her recovery.

Dikul a Russian strongman from Moscow fell from a trapeeze receiving a complete spinal cord injury, he too was told he would never walk again. He too adopted exercise often falling asleep on an inclined weight bench with exhaustion and when the morning came around he would continue with increased determination. Dikul has now become a Doctor and helps patients with spinal cord injury to follow his own amazing recovery, but to have his determination and single mindedness cannot be taught, it has to be adopted.
But a few people are able to.
