Magnesium Oil is a Muscle’s Best Friend

Magnesium Oil is a Muscle’s Best Friend

Apr 13, 2017 | Remedies
Magnesium oil is a super-saturated solution of magnesium chloride in distilled water. Applied topically, when it dries it can feel chalky on the skin as some minerals precipitate out of solution while being absorbed into the body. It is an inexpensive remedy with a long shelf-life and can effectively treat several health problems associated with magnesium deficiency.
As a topical treatment, transdermal magnesium ...

US vs Canada

I saw a utube video that says in the U.S. 1 in 1000 has MS. In Canada 1 in 500 has MS. Another factoid suggesting distance from the equator is important.

Scientists reveal the workings of key molecular mechanism

Scientists reveal the workings of key molecular mechanism of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases

An international team of researchers led by Professor Savvas Savvides, VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research, has unravelled a crucial aspect of the molecular basis of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases such as multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease. Focusing on the immunomodulatory cytokine IL-23 they discovered that its pro-inflammatory activity, which underlies a wide range of inflammatory diseases, critically depends on ...

Has being dairy free helped anyone's symptoms?

Has anyone tried a dairy free diet to help symptoms? I've read alot about how dairy causes inflammation in the body but was surprised to find a dairy-MS connection. The body can't tell the difference between cow dairy protein and myelin protein. Since I don't want to consume something that may cause my body to attack itself I stopped all dairy 9 months ago. I have noticed no difference but my inflammatory markers in blood ...

Just because the AFO maker might have patents, does not mean postings about their products are any form of advertising. The latest "MS ...

CIS? APS?

I vaguely remember reading that a small number of MS victims have one attack and then no more. Then saw a medical video where the doctor says it'll happen again eventually, that there's no such thing as CIS. I was diagnosed end of July, almost 6 months ago. No recurrences of the vertigo since then. So how long do I wait til I can think this nightmare is over? Also I have antiphospholipid antibody syndrome ...
