flaxseed..ever noticed a side effect?

Was having ground flaxseed (~15g) and after a month started developing twitch in my eyes. Thought it to be some form of ms exacerbation but then thought again of what changes I had made in diet and if at all that could be causing the twitch. Read that dryness causes eye twitch and flaxseed is responsible for some amount of dryness in the body. Stopped flaxseed and in 2-3 days the twitch was gone completely. ...

Alcoholic Polyneuropathy

Hi all,
As I was diagnosed with MS shortly after being told I had secondary liver damage due to years of excessive alcohol consumption, I always thought that the 2 could be linked. Very early after been diagnosed, before I had any symptoms, after having a few drinks I would be unable to walk due to my legs going into overdrive and forcing me to run, bearing in mind that this was my only issue ...

Kombucha anyone?

Anyone out there drinking kombucha? Seems like it could be of benefit to anyone - rich in enzymes, probiotics, antioxidents & EGCG. For those unfamiliar, kombucha is a fermented tea beverage. It is definitely an acquired taste - something like carbonated apple cider vineager. It's also pretty pricey here in the USA, close to $4.00 a 16 oz bottle.

Axona or Ketogenic Diets anyone?

Hi Everyone,

I've been working with a few patients who have many overlapping symptoms with other conditions (sound familiar?) and a few of them have "almost" epilepsy presentations. We are considering the ketogenic diet, or the new "medical food" Axona.

Is anyone familiar with it?

There are so many times that it seems my body and brain just hit a wall, and they don't rejuvenate with food, as would be normal. I'm not diabetic, but ...

Before embarking on a diet, say like the gluten free diet,would you check to see if you are allergic to gluten and other foods that you wish to eliminate from your diet?

Do diet friendly neurologists exist?

Due to the lengthy times required to wait to see a neurologist here..6 months from probable diagnosis to actually seeing one. I was left with plenty of time to research.
I am of the strong belief that diet and lifestyle play a large part in health and slowing the progression of this illness. When I mentioned diet to my neurologist her reaction was as if I was talking about voodoo!
Does anyone out there have ...
