trying to keep it simpler !

Hi, am sharing here my latest reads and findings and asking for help to reflect with me on this. This started when I was looking for a disease with similar symptoms to my MS symptoms.

I came across some very interesting facts; I had a look at the symptoms of body fluid retention and bad fluid drainage. For example “they can also experience symptoms of burning, aching, or itchiness”-,in the legs. "symptoms tend to be ...

How many of you have Amalgam fillings

and how many?

I read studies that Amalgam can contribute to MS or any other brain disease. I also read that there was a study done of 20,000 adults with amalgam fillings and only 7 had MS.

I can't find a number indicating how many people in the world have amalgam fillings but I'd be curious to know.

New study: blood flow, brain atrophy & MS

The study out of NYU looks at cerebrovascular reactivity, or CVR. CVR is how the brain reacts or responds with blood flow when there is vasodilation. This function is extremely important, as neurons need adequate blood flow to provide glucose and oxygenation. Without this response of adequate cerebral bloodflow (CBF), the brain will not function properly, and neurons can potentially die.

Saturated fat vers Co. oil

Have any of you researched current diets? I've read that we should stay away from sat. fat. But that comes from a book 5 yrs old. I believe that Coconut oil is more nutritious than Olive oil. I can take 2 ts of C. oil in the morning with my Tecfidera and feel fine. If I take Olive oil instead, I feel sick. My meds require fat. But I've read ANY sat. fat is bad.

Expert consensus on disease-modifying therapies in MS

A growing body of evidence suggests that early control of disease activity in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) plays a key role in preventing disability, prolonging the period of being active and engaged, and protecting quality of life.

For that reason, MS experts are calling for early and full access to all disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) for patients with MS...... Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/drugsresearch

Risk of MS increased by low testicular function

Testicular hypofunction and multiple sclerosis risk: A record-linkage study.

Pakpoor J, Goldacre R, Schmierer K, Giovannoni G, Goldacre MJ.

Abstract

The influence of gonadal hormones on multiple sclerosis is not well characterised and has thus far been investigated primarily in animal models or as a proposed therapeutic approach.
