Gut microbes and the brain

Gut microbes and the brain: paradigm shift in neuroscience.
J Neurosci. 2014 Nov 12;34(46):15490-6.

    The discovery of the size and complexity of the human microbiome has resulted in an ongoing reevaluation of many concepts of health and disease, including diseases affecting the CNS. A growing body of preclinical literature has demonstrated bidirectional signaling between the brain and the gut microbiome, involving multiple neurocrine and endocrine signaling mechanisms. While psychological and physical stressors can affect the ...

Because of MS and APS I have resting tremor in my left, the dominant hand, I'm trying to turn my right into the dominant hand by practicing my handwriting. Anyone wanna guess which is which in the photo? I practice by brushing my teeth with the non-dominant hand. My dad was in the army for 20+ years. He was a leftie and the army switched him by forcing him to do everything with is ...

gnawing, boring, itching sensation

I'm coming up to 14yrs since diagnosis - no meds - gluten free vegan and eat fish. I can still walk 5kms without having to sit down, but can't run very well. About 1yr ago I developed this horrible annoying itching, boring, gnawing sensation on the right side of my head - just by ear - it comes and goes. I guess it's the MS. Some days it's worse than others, sometimes if I lie ...

MS news today

This morning's edition talks about diet. The talking heads are recommending a heart-healthy balanced diet. The only supplement needed is Vitamin D. I was seen by a specialist a few days ago. He said essentially the same thing. The only new item for me was the need for water. I drink a gallon of coffee and probably a quart of diet ginger ale daily. I can't remember the last time I got a glass of ...

The saga continues...

Last July I was diagnosed with MS and APS: Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. Since then I've been on two drugs, monthly Tysabri infusions for the MS and daily Pradaxa for the APS. The MS doctor was never sure about the APS so she referred me to a specialist. I'd had a tremor for months before the MS dx. Also atrocious, small hand-writing.

My doctor tried sinemet. I don't remember the dose. But I never felt it ...

Is saturated fat bad for people diagnosed with PPMS ??

I'm going back on the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol eating plan.

I really need to know if (natural, not man-made) saturated fat is bad for people with primary progressive ms :?: That is what I've been diagnosed with, but to me, it's obviously a blood flow/volume issue.

Eating fish may be tied to a reduced risk of MS

Eating fish at least once a week or eating fish one to three times per month in addition to taking daily fish oil supplements may be associated with a reduced risk of multiple sclerosis (MS), according to a preliminary study released that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology's 70th Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, 21-27 April 2018. These findings suggest that the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish may be associated with ...
