Cranberry extract was not as effective as trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) in preventing urinary tract infections in women, a double-blind study found.

During a year of prophylaxis, the mean number of new urinary tract infections among women taking cranberry extract was 4 (95% CI 2.3 to 5.6), while the mean number for women taking the low-dose antibiotic was 1.8 (95% CI 0.8 to 2.7), according to Suzanne E. Geerlings, MD, PhD, of Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam, and colleagues.

However, after only one month of treatment, more than 85% of fecal flora from women taking the antibiotic were resistant to TMP-SMX, the researchers reported in the July 25 Archives of Internal Medicine. ... Read More - http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm/fuseact ... pageid/806

what you think about it ?


I can give you LOTS of answers but you will be required to do some reading and thinking.

I have a massive amout of GOOD info on WHY and HOW many of these things, and many more, can help the MS problem by protecting Myelin from damage. It all comes for the NIH-NLM. I have both the abstracts and full text articles in many cases.

I do not understand why there is not more discussion here on this board about this stuff.

I would like your comments and feedback if you want my info.

Most of the time I think I am only talking to myself.

I regret seeming so negative but some negative experiences have had their effect.

You already have some good info from the right source.

Re: Ginkgo

In the conclusion of this second article posted by Dignan, it was stated there were no side effects reported for ginkgo. Apparently, some have been discovered since this article posted in 2006; yesterday Dr. Oz related that ginkgo is a natural painkiller for headaches, especially migraines, but that ginkgo is not advised for diabetics because it raises insulin levels (about 5:30 in this video).

In searching for an appropriate thread to post this ginkgo information, I discovered that many people are using it – believing it would help MS, I used it for many years too, but have now discontinued.

Nowhere else have I heard of this ginkgo/insulin connection:

Who do you want for your doctor? A few year ago, the AMA published the average life span of doctors was 56 years. They have stopped. I wonder Why.
I have read the Bio’s of many natural health doctors, dietitians and researchers.
Most seemed to lived 70 to 90 odd years, one to a 108 and he had diabetes and only had complications the last 2 years.

and now again
4-Phenoxybutoxy-substituted heterocycles--a structure-activity relationship study of blockers of the lymphocyte potassium channel Kv1.3.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19056148

the importance of this is written here
Kv1.3 potassium channels as a therapeutic target in multiple sclerosis.
