Again not MS but certainly related

:lol: :lol: I'm sure this Dr. must have read some of my ramblings on gut flora and correcting Johns as this is exactly the path John and I started on when they said the MS word in 2005. Leaky gut although not official diagnosed was one of John major problems at that time so we decided to eliminate food ...
