Haptens can trigger MS

I am author of a poster about environmental and genetic factors which can trigger MS. This poster is on my: http://www.haptens.republika.pl/images/poster.jpg
This poster had number P15 and was presented at International Conference "Advances in Clinical Neuroimmunology", which took place on 7-8 December 2007 in Poznan, Poland. I have evidence that MS is relatively easy to predict, prevent and arrest.

Creatine

Looking into supplementation of creatine for mitochondrial energy enhancement and fatigue relief. Anyone using creatine monohydrate supplements?


http://www.scq.ubc.ca/creatine-from-muscle-to-brain/

Pilot Study: Naturopathic Medicine for MS

Hi all

Here's a link to an article (pdf) that may be of interest to some.
A Randomized Pilot Study of Naturopathic Medicine in Multiple Sclerosis

Conclusions: Naturopathic medicine combined with usual care for MS showed a trend in improvement in the General Health subscale of the SF-36, Timed Walk, and neurologic impairment. Evaluation of naturopathic medicine, as a multimodality regimen, warrants further investigation.

Resveratrol in the news

From the NY Times...

Sirtris, a start up biochemical co. trying to patent drugs based on red wines' resveratrol, was purchased by GlaxoSmithKline for 720 million. You know when drug companies are trying to patent and replicate natural substances, that there's something there that works.

nutrition and expecting moms

hey this article looks pretty informative

http://bmb.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/reprint/55/3/499.pdf

the roles that the different vitamins and minerals play in fetal growth and development are reviewed, primarily with respect to growth and differentiation in humans; but, as appropriate, data provided from animal and cellular studies are also considered.


throw in what we know about the usual suspects in ms and that article looks like it could be a pretty useful resource.

MS and elevated liver enzymes

Dear Dim...
I wanted to start this thread and dedicate it to your lovely wife and my husband- two MSers who have had elevated liver enzymes without cause.

Jeff was not drinking alcohol or taking any medication when he was diagnosed with MS in March '07. He had not received steroids or Copaxone, and was not taking any supplements. His blood test showed liver enzymes (AST and ALT) elevated 10x normal. He was jaundiced, and ...
