MS-like symptoms after shingles

I also had terrible looking stool, headaches, joint pain, weakness (difficultly walking up stairs), brain fog, dizziness (not extreme, like I'm walking on a boat), cognitive difficulty, and incessant muscle twitching (from muscles I didn't ...

I really had no idea what was going on so ...

http://www.pnas.org/content/103/47/17589.short

Inadequate dietary intakes of vitamins and minerals are widespread, most likely due to excessive consumption of energy-rich, micronutrient-poor, refined food. Inadequate intakes may result in chronic metabolic disruption, including mitochondrial decay. Deficiencies in many ...
