Red Hair

Has anyone ever noticed how many people with MS have red hair? (I went on a freckles rant a while back, now I'm stuck on red hair)
In the general population, I read that 1-2% of people have red hair. I'm convinced that % is MUCH higher in those of us with MS. For those of you who do not have red hair, what about your parents, siblings, grandparents?
I can't find info on how ...

MS Expo in Louisville, KY

I received a postcard in the mail announcing the first ever MS Expo in Louisville, KY on July 26, 2008 from 9am to 6pm. There is a website for more information and to register if you plan to attend. I am not endorsing this event just letting everyone know so that if you're in or around the area you may be interested in attending. I'm kicking around the idea of going.

Candida and MS

I posted here a long time ago about an odor emitting from my pores, that has gotten worse as my MS has gotten worse.

I'm cleaning the yeast out of my intestines and the odor is going away. My energy is coming back.

I stopped the acetyl-glucosamine because it was irritating my prostate, which is whole other new story.

I advise all of you to get some good probiotics and digestive enzymes. It's working wonders ...

I get a couple of e-mails a week from the 'Dummies' people pushing their latest books. Today's e-mail was a bit of a jaw dropper:

I seem to have misplaced mine in the past few years. Worrying, since I'm at an age where I should have increased urges. They're simply not there, at all.

At first I thought that having surgery for endometriosis 4-5 years ago was the reason. Now I'm wondering if I can point back to MS as the culprit.

Anyone else have these problems? I'm taking Chaste Tree at the suggestion of my nutritionist/natural doctor along with ...

After my first round of steroids

I had a lot of 'symptoms' previously, including a ton of sensory issues.

Following the 6 day IV steroids and month tapering off, most of the symptoms are gone. The remaining symptoms that cause me concern now: I get what feels like a 'hot' feeling in my head, comes and goes, but feels like a heat wave in my skull, at the back to the top of the head. I also get pain in the ...

Drug companies seek recognized authors

By Jonathan Bor, Sun reporter, April 18, 2008

The news this week that Merck & Co. conducted research on its own drug and paid prominent scientists to lend their names to the studies came as no surprise to many people in medicine.

Stem cell doctor in Costa Rica

I am writing this on behalf of my uncle to find the legitimacy of Dr David A. Alanis M.D. He is from the Institute of Cellular Medicine:

Dr Alanis claims that he will treat MS with a Series of intravenous and 5 intrathecal injections consists of ambbellical chord over a two week time period.

Have any of you heard of this? Is this a scam?

AAN 2008 roundup?

In the previous years Art Mellor always had a roundup of the AAN conference on his accellerated cure website.
This year it does not seem as if he had attended the AAN 2008.

Is there an other source for a roundup of AAN 2008?

By the way, last year there was a conference at Harvard Medical School and the lectures where online as audio documents.
Has a similar conference of HMS been done in 2008? ...
