i think a few pills can alter crappy body biochemistry to arrest damaging cycles. then things can happen properly. maybe some damage is permanent. maybe some aspects of this can be healed. after all, when we break a bone, or tear the skin, it magically reappears. if we continually shut car doors on our fingers, sure they stay damaged, but if we change the behaviour, healing begins.
i remain curious as to the composition of these supplements. i will not be suprised if we find the contents are supported in research. if the company won't disclose the contents, that's another matter.
let me be clear, i don't imagine straight nutrition is the answer for all - but i think it could be for me. i think i'm in the dietary subset of ms
i have been too strict a vegan for too long and all my body biochem is way out of whack as a result. the typical low b12, low D, and low uric acid found in MS are also low to absent in a strict vegan diet. there are other problems with vegan diet which i have manifested and may also be contributing to my condition.
i have noticed changes from supplements, once in as little as a few hours, when suddenly i could feel my fingers again, enough to type (that was a big bunch of b vitamins).
i used to get numb feet, and when it got to stumbling, i would take b12 for a few days, and back the feet would come (and the coordination). i would suddenly just feel a little pins and needles, and then i would be like, oh, hello again, feet!
i have also noticed improvements that are not directly related to ms. supplements obviously have merit or they wouldn't be recommended in daily amounts by our governments. i believe we are what we eat, extremely literally. so ya. no longer a vegan.
