Anyone heard of esperanza homeopathic neuropeptide?

I've just received my magazine from the New Pathways publishers which is for MSers and they have included an article about the esperanza neuropeptide sublingual spray which costs a staggering £5,450. Does anyone know anything about this stuff? It looks a bit snake oily to me but just wondering if anyone had heard anything good about it.

Hi Folks!

I was first diagnosed in 1998, and was immediately put on Avonex. Well, I was on the Avonex faithfully for a couple of years, and still noticed my condition worsening. And for having lapses in insurance I was on and off the Avonex for 5-6 month intervals, up till this last Sept. Just this Year My Neurologist changed me to Rebif, which I have been on since March. I must say I don't miss the ...

Chronic helminth infections induce immunomodulation:

By now everyone is probably aware of my long fascination and obsession with the (strong) possibility that the loss of "evolutionary normal" conditions (Hygiene Hypothesis) in the "developed" populations led to those same populations having a primary predisposition to allergy, asthma and autoimmune disease.

Although most of her early work was specific to allergies and asthma, Maria Yazdanbakhsh of Leiden University is an eminent pioneer in this infant field of research.

Antispasticity drugs-Zanaflex

Hello dear friends,

I just started taking Zanaflex and I have had a few not so
pleasent (side) effects. I am slowly working up to 12 mg per
day. Can't even imagine what it will be like at that dose level...

Is anyone else on it. What has been your experience?
Is this one of those drugs where eventually the SEs go away?
Up to this point the trade off is not worth it.
Thanks ...

twitch, tremor, shake and flicker

HEllo to all you out there in the forum.

I have posted some pretty heavy stuff in the past. Possibly this one is less depressing, but somehow I doubt it. Lately I have started having a lot of bizarre symptoms. I get these twitches and tremors that are almost a constant. When I try to flex or contract my muscles I shake pretty badly. I also feel like my whole body, vision, balance, etc is ...
