New booklet from DIRECT-MS

DIRECT-MS has recently added a new booklet to our home page entitled The Alberta Disadvantage. This brochure demonstrates that the province of Alberta, Canada, the home of DIRECT-MS, has by far the highest rates of MS in the world: Prevalence 340/1000,000 ; Incidence 20/100,000.

Data and arguments are provided to support the argument that the main reason for the “MS Epidemic” is that all the main causal factors are present in Alberta, with low vitamin ...

Ok, here goes...

Hi. My name is Ronnie, and I have had MS since 1990 (optic neuritis), although I didn't get a real diagnosis until 1994.

Where Did MS Come From?

Where Did MS Come From?

By Ashton Embry

As part of my MS literature research I have tried to answer big questions such as “what causes MS?” and “where did MS come from?”. It has always seemed to me that answers to such questions would be very helpful for developing effective therapies for both the prevention and treatment of MS. In this column I will summarize my answers to these important, yet rarely addressed, ...

ABX, W/ Rebif

Does anyone have any one have any casual recommendations as to what ABX to take, how much to take, and the frequency? I noticed that the trials running now only involve mino, or doxy, but I noticed several of you all posting that you are taking both? or other combo's? Why, what is the mode of action? As long as you are receiving the MMP's, isn't that what matters? Paratek is developing a non-antibiotic tetracycline, ...

Article on ms

The following article appeared in the Times (UK newspaper) last weekend. ... jsp?id=704

PS I haven't gone to sleep on identifying MS research articles. There's just nothing to report at the moment. I suspect that the recent ACTRIMS / ECTRIMS conference sucked in most research undertaken in the last year. The researchers will also be holding back some papers to justify a trip to the Australian MS Society ...

My regimen(s)

Hi all,

First a quick overview of the past (rough dates).
1996 diagnosed with a peripheral neuropathy (autoimmune)
Used short Prednisone pulses of 75mg/day tapering down over a ...

so hard....

It was one of the hardest thing I had to do in my life was to tell my 9 yr old he had MS tonight. It took me 5 days but I had to go ahead and explain to him, why he was having some of his problems and about starting treatment. He cried about the shots, and we talked about trying to make it easier. all the neat tips, Ive been learning about on ...
