Research breathes new life into MS viral theory

Research breathes new life into theory supporting possible viral etiology of multiple sclerosis

Several clusters of multiple sclerosis cases have been identified around the world, some of which have occurred in association with exposure to infectious agents, while others have suggested an influence of environmental toxins, such as heavy metals.

Although MS is likely a result of multifactorial influences, there is some evidence that viruses play a role in the disease. For example, in the ...

Spinal cord and retinal measures independently relate to MS

Spinal cord and retinal measures independently relate to MS disability

New research found statistically significant correlations between MRI measures of the spinal cord, optical coherence tomography measures of the retina, and clinical disability.

Two common categories of multiple sclerosis symptoms, visual and sensorimotor, are associated with lesions in the spinal cord (SC) and optic nerve. The symptoms also co-occur frequently in specific classes of demyelinating diseases such as neuromyelitis optica. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University ...

increasing blood flow to the brain, WITHOUT surgery

Some say CCSVI works. Others not. Many who have the surgery seem to have some initial benefit which only last a few years. Others don't have any benefit. And of course, some have long lasting positive results.

In any case, I think that most will agree that increasing blood flow to the brain is probably a good thing (whether you are sick with MS or not). I personally would not choose the surgery option unless ...

Studying vision impairments in multiple sclerosis

Vision impairments due to multiple sclerosis is common but an under studied area, according to a report published in Brain. Researchers from both the United States and the United Kingdom reported on an international meeting of investigators aiming to develop and study visual outcomes in MS. The Dublin meeting was attended by more than 60 investigators in the realms of MS, neuro ophthalmology, clinical trial design, and evaluation of clinical outcome measures from Europe, North ...

Coimbra explains his D Protocol - MUST WATCH/lLISTEN

I started the protocol in September 2014. Not knowing correct dosing I started at 40Kiu/day and worked my way up to 100kKiu (too much) recently. Based on my weight I shoud be at about 65Kiu. My diary helped confirm this was the best dosing level. STUDY/UNDERSTAND THE PROTOCOL WELL BEFORE UNDERTAKING.
