Electric Stair Lifts


I am wondering about which electric stair lift to purchase. I am not sure where this query should be posted, but what I would like to know is what experiences others have had with various brands and models of stair lifts, good and bad.

We of course want to buy one that will continue to work over a long time period.

Any help will be much appreciated!

Can no longer afford Copaxone

Does anyone know of a doctor in central Florida who will prescribe LDN? I need meds but my insurance company just raised my copay for Copaxone from $35 to over $350. I cannot afford it. Thanks!

Dr Tim Vollmer video

The Acclerated Cure Project has included a video of its 2007 annual event on its website. The video of Dr Tim Vollmer's presentation looks very interesting - I've seen the first 20 mins and will watch the rest later. I think GWA is a fan of Dr Vollmer.

In Memory and Hope

Today marks the one year anniversary of my uncle’s death from MS. If you ever hear someone say you can’t die from MS, unfortunately I know that you can and it was a terrible way to die. He was a great guy and I miss him. I was diagnosed with MS the year he died. But, here is where the hope part comes in; I believe I have a better chance against this illness than ...

Ok, this is a strange connection....but the story really caught my eye. Really feel for these folks and their families...

Eleven employees at an Austin pork plant have developed chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) There's currently an official inquiry, since these folks have become very ill...numbness, tingling, loss of mobility, stiffness and pain.

I actually found a site where someone has spent alot of time compiling evidence stating ...

Interesting video

This isn't for everyone. It's a half hour video about a guy with Crohn's (one of the inflammatory bowel diseases, which are also considered "autoimmune" or one of the inflammatory diseases).

I think this will be of interest to those of "us" who feel these diseases share common causes/mechanisms/cure and have an interest in helminth immunomodulation. I'm in the process of watching it but I'm told there is a segment on hookworm and Crohn's.

ladies' problem and gabapentine/baclofen

I started gabapentine a week ago, and baclofen 2 weeks ago. Over the weekend and last night (3 nights out of 4) I have had EXTREMELY heavy bleeding. I'm not going to be course but we're talking about (apologises) flooding, not just a heavy period.

I wondered if it could be the tablets, prob gabapentine as that started more recently. I also have PCOS which means I have had this problem before, but only ...

Mirror Neurons: Therapeutic Reflection

I recently saw a TV show which talked about "Mirror Neurons". It seemed like they would be a possible therapeutic target for motor skills. I have since tried a couple of times to find anything relating these to MS, but always came out empty handed. Finally, I found the following article, related to stroke.

I have included the whole article, as it can only be found "Cached" on google, not at the actual web site. ...

Are any of the thousands of members that may be on one of the conventional treatments ever wonder if maybe they should try one of these alternative therepies such as ldn or antibiotics ect. After all you may get better results taking a pill than poking yourself with a needle for years on end. What do you think? I know the only way to find out is to try them but it must be hard ...

Causes and potential cures for MS

Although I'm new to the community I've noticed something I think is important. Both in reading posts here and looking at information elsewhere I've found that with almost every case of MS research can be done to find a potential cause or cure but that it may only apply to a few cases. What I mean is there are so many different pieces of research that seem to have valid finds with solid information that ...
