glyconutrients

Would like to hear from any MS'rs taking glyconutrients. Went to a seminar on this subject and it all sounds to good to be true. Extremely expensive, but then again so is the copaxone I'm on.

Using nanotechnology to grow cells

As a treatment option the use of nanotechnology is still a long way off, but this announcement gives a tantalising glimpse of its possible potential. As usual, scientific journalists trundle out their stock phrase, "... such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's", whenever they think about neurological conditions -- MS seems to be off their radar unless the news item is specifically about it -- as the most common neurological cause of disability in young people, I ...

Yikes! Tolerating Abx?

I'm in week 13 of a regime of doxycycline, azithromicin and metronidazole pulse every 4 weeks. When that 4th week rolls around, my stomach goes on strike. I'm pretty religious about either eating yogurt and taking probiotics but I get to the point where one more pill will throw me over the edge. Anybody have any diet suggestions? I'm following the Swank diet as closely as I can, but some days I feel that I'm ...
