How do you take your supplements?

I am looking at the supplement list at David Wheldon’s site, all of them I’ve encountered on this forum too. So I seriously started to consider taking (some of) them, doing some calculations along the road.
So the daily (essential) supplements are:
- N-acetyl cysteine 600mg twice daily: 2 pills

- Vitamin C 1 g: easily available dose for ...

UK stem cell early trial for MS

Dear all,

One of the UK's leading lights looking at stem cell therapies for MS is Professor Neil Scolding who is based in Bristol, England. He has been doing work for a number of years and is being funded by the UK MS Society. It now looks as if the first human trial using bone-marrowed derived stem cells has started at Bristol. It is early days, but this is a bona fide trial - not ...

Hi there

I just wanted to share this great poem that I read, hope it touches someone else, as it did me :

After A While

by Veronica A. Shoffstall

After a while you learn

the subtle difference between

holding a hand and chaining a soul

and you learn

that love doesn't mean leaning

and company doesn't always mean security.

And you begin to learn

that kisses aren't contracts

and presents aren't promises

and you ...

Should I add an antiviral?


I'm a young woman living in Europe (English is my third language).
I developed mild double vision in mid-February 2007, two days after a hepatitis A vaccination, which led to a neurology consult, spinal tap (positive) and CT (negative) on day 4, MRI (multiple T2 lesions) on day 5 and "probably MS"-diagnosis on day 6...
After the steroid course that started on day 7, I recovered completely.
Otherwise I was and am in excellent ...

muscle pain and cramps with Avonex

Hi there

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with the really debilitating muscle cramps and pain that come with Avonex. I really want to keep on this medication, but this is a problem for me for about two days each week. I take the ibuprofen and tylenol that the docs tell me to, but although it helps with the fever and chills, it does nothing for the cramps (or headaches). I am ...

DNA Vaccine for MS

Tonight on the 5:30 pm Canadian Global TV national news, they had a very brief story about DNA being used in a vaccine to treat MS.

The story, which lasted all of about 20 seconds, stated that Phase II trials of this vaccine reduced brain lesions, (where have we heard that before?!) showed promise and the company was going to likely do Phase III trials. They didn't even mention the pharmaceutical company involved.

That's all ...
