Cause of my MS?

I was talking to my brother and he reminded me of something I hadn't thought about for a while. In 2004 I got very sick. I could barely eat, swallow, or drink. I would break into a very cold sweat and sometimes collapse and almost pass out. I went to see a doctor who immediately sent me to the emergency room. They ran a gamut of blood tests and found nothing and thought perhaps it ...

ALA as a Necessary Supplement

This is an excerpt from a research article I read this week about ALA. I posted this on the "Natural Supplements" page, but thought it might be better answered here since the other thread was old.

"Alpha lipoic acid is a naturally occurring nutrient found at low levels in green leafy vegetables, potatoes and meats, especially organ meats such as kidney, heart or liver. The amounts used in ...

Acrylamide is neurotoxic, found in baked/fried food

I came across this because there is actually a section on how to avoid it, in the user manual to my oven. It gives scientific validity to the raw foods movement, as its found commonly in baked and fried foods. They appear to have only discovered it in 2002.

So I'm thinking

The most common side effects(swelling at the site etc) are also associated with rebif and it lacks the increased fatigue associated with interferons. Also, although I am no doctor I feel ...
