I had read some positive effects for acetyl-L-carnitine on fatigue in MS patients, based on a double-blinded study. I had also had some non-MS friends claim some energy benefits. The abstract on the MS study is below, I'm sure it has already been posted elsewhere.

I thought I would give it a go, starting with 250 mg with the idea of walking up to 1g total/day (in 4 250 mg increments), taking 250 mg for ...

Advice on Supplements


I am trying to add supplements to my diet that will benefit my health. Currently I am taking Copaxone, a multi-vitamin and cod liver oil.

New information on bacteria

Hello to all. I am relatively new to "posting" and don't know if this is the correct subject area, but here goes...briefly, I have a daughter with MS and I spend hours reading/researching. I am a strong supporter of traditional medication but also feel there are natural choices that will help us also.

Calcium EAP or Calcium AEP

I guess I am not really sure if you would consider the IV part natural... but I have recently been coming accross this one.

Has anyone personally tried it? I did a search for it on iHerb, ...

Has anyone gotten any good reasearch on this subject?
I understand the carcenogenic effect on synthic progesterone and the drug companies don't want you to know ...
