Sharon at Stanford

Hey Sharon, I saw you posted over the weekend on The Experience Project while this site was down, and I figured you’d be busy all day today at Stanford. I just wanted to wish you well and let you know I'm thinking of you. Please let us know how you’re doing when you have time.

Gimme a lift (patient lift that is)

I now find that I need to get a lift because picking me up is becoming very hard on my caregivers. Does anyone use a lift and if so what kind? and did insurance/medicare pay for it? :?:

The Body Toxic

I have just finished reading The Body Toxic by Nena Baker and would like to recommend it to others. While the book doesn’t have anything to do with MS, I feel that the healthier we can live our lives, the better off we will likely be in the long run. The book discusses toxic chemicals that we are commonly exposed to in our everyday lives. These include atrazine (a commonly used agriculture herbicide and pesticide), ...

Account of patients who went through Israeli protocol

Here's a testimonial of a patient who recently underwent the Israeli stem cell protocol, as practiced by Dr. Shimon Slavin.

While his results aren't miraculous, they do seem encouraging. It would be interesting to see how his story unfolds...

Seeking advice on how to proceed (symptoms suggestive of MS)

It's always difficult to post something like this, but i'll try as i could use a bit of support and advice.
I have been having MS like symptoms for about three years, but they were always mild and i was in graduate school as they were progressing but didn't have time for anything other than school if you know what i mean.
I have another condition known as primary spinal stenosis which also progressed at ...

When to start Ldn

I have been recently diagnosis with MS (though have had symptoms for a couple of years, but never underestimate the power of denial huh?), i am making my plan now as to how to best deal with this. Of course, i will do everything in the natural kingdom, diet, supplements and everything that has shown to be of benefit (including acupuncture, chiropractic and massage). But i also want to use chemicals, though sparingly. I have ...

Hi Everyone,

I saw my neurologist for the 1st time this past Wednesday. Unfortunately, she was not the type of doctor I want taking care of what may be a very serious issue. The highlight of the appointment was when she told my husband to open her office door and go down the hall to tell her receptionist that she needed another prescription pad.

After only being able to tell her half of my issues, ...

Apparently, detecting these venous stenoses in living people has become possible only recently. Admittedly I have no clue what goes on in an autopsy, but it seems reasonable that such a stenosis would be easy to see in that setting.

Hasn't the history of MS research included numerous studies involving autopsies? So if CCSVI is closely associated with MS, why didn't the correlation become apparent a long time ago?

(I'm trying to be a critical ...
