Key myelin protein, MBP, seen to break down differently in brains of MS patients

Researchers monitoring the decomposition of an abundant brain protein, called myelin basic protein (MBP), discovered that this protein breaks down differently in people with multiple sclerosis than it does in those without the disease, particularly in two surface regions, and that difference may be the trigger for immune reactions and myelin damage...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/key-myelin-protein-mbp-seen-break-down-differently-brains-ms-patients-121216

Stop it with steel

Once again I write on the same theme. MS is stopped completely if you wear a layer of steel about the head at night. This can be as simple as steel wirewool under a baseball cap. It may sound crazy but it works. Try it! It has been used by the author with 33 years of MS for more than 2 years. Brain lesions have almost completely disappeared. Symptoms have vanished after 30 years. For ...

MS Hug and Indicas

MS Hug related symptoms are the most unpleasant and truly frightening of any of the MS symptoms I have dealt with in my 30+ years of dealing with MS.

Has anyone found indica cannabas (medical marijuana) to be of help in relieving this symptom?

I have just filled a prescription for liboderm lidocaine patches to have on hand when an attack happens (I've heard this is helpful), but am looking for additional alternatives.

Thanks for ...
