Reiki

Does anyone do it regularly?

Family and friends are raving about it and keeping suggesting it to me (on the verge of pushing it on me) and I am intrigued. But also nervous about it. I'm not sure if I want someone messing around with my energy/electricity considering I have problems with it already.

I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts on it. :)

Hi All

Hi everyone....glad to have found this site!

My name is Steve, 40 years old, and diagnosed with RRMS back in December following a fairly debilitating attack. I've been lucky enough to enjoy good health for my entire life, having rarely ever seen a doctor until a few months ago. Unfortunately, all of that changed back in late November.

Right around Thanksgiving, I noticed a tingling/burning in my left leg, and I recognized the sensation as ...

New to the Site

Hello to all!

I just came across this site - and am eager to get into it more! I've been diagnosed for a year and a half - after a 5 year struggle! Just started Avonex, also on Lamictol. Most days are great, but some days really really suck!

Glad to be here! Any advice welcome!

Would appreciate new friends/contact

My name is Cindy and was diagnosed with RRMS in early 2002.

At this stage, there is no pain but my mobility is really bad.
I'm not sure what I want to say--other than I just have to get started and actually reach out/connect this time...
The bottom line, ...

New book on Lyme (MS?) including LDN

New book: The Lyme Disease Solution by Ken singleton. MD

Lyme is still a controvercial area, good to see an MD weighing in. He also has a chapter on the use of Low Dose Naltrexone LDN in treating
Lyme. Here's the intro http://www.lymebook.com/lyme-disease-low-dose-
naltrexone-ldn

Just thought I'd point this out, since I have a positive Lyme PCR from
Igenex, and that is likely the cause of my "MS". I ...

Gadolinium/blood draws

I really don't sit around contemplating disaster, but this has been on my mind since before the Gadolinium issues came up. Since I have been in this trial, my trial days have been set up like this; I have an MRI and get injected with contrast then I go to my site for tests, injections and BLOOD DRAWS. My common sense alarms have been going off about the blood used for my vaccine being full ...

Early aggresive treatment in Crohn's & stimulating T-cel

Two articles I thought were interesting today, maybe not directly related to MS but enlightening.

Reverse treatment aids Crohn's sufferers

Early use of powerful immune-suppressing drugs shown to be more successful than traditional methods



And under the category: do this but in reverse...

Stimulating Thymus Reactivates T-Cell Production

It has long been believed that it wasn't possible to reactivate T-cell production in the thymus. The new study, by researchers at the Gladstone Institute of Virology ...
