MS Positive Feedback Loop

CONCLUSION : A Synergy of factors is at work in the MS disease process.

1) CCSVI phenomena number one. Vein stenoses cause blood draining from the brain/spine to “back-jet” into CNS, thus triggering an immune response (lesions) and damage.

2) CCSVI phenomena number two. Inflammation. Poor MS Diet, allergies, EBV virus cause calcium to leave the cells to trigger a) cramps in the skeletal muscles and b) spasms in the smooth muscles of the veins ...

Interesting Gut Microbiome results

new model of MS: B cells infected by EBV

A recent failure with Tysabri has shed some light into MS pathogenesis. It seems that is not EBV itself, but some B-cells infected by EBV, the cause of MS.
This confirms previous works in this area that found the same problem in the "ectopic b-cells follicles".
The authors of the article propose a model about how lesions develop in this context.

1 week after solu medrol infusion

Hello everyone
It's been 1 week after the solu medrol treatment, i started to feel better during the week , but this morning i woke up with severe diarrhoea (after 1 week of constipation) ,

Thank you
