Running could one day help prevent Multiple Sclerosis and other neurodegenerative diseases, according to a study which found that exercise releases a molecule which repairs the brain. Using mice, researchers at The Ottawa Hospital and the University of Ottawa found that this molecule, called VGF nerve growth factor, helps to heal myelin – the protective coating that surrounds and insulates nerve fibres...Read more -

The viral theory is not dead

The MRZH reaction was a test in which antibodies against viruses of Measles, Rubella, varicella Zoster or Herpes was shown. It was shown that it happened with a higher frequency in MS than any other chronic disease.

It was showing only 67% specificity, much less than other tests like oligoclonal bands, but a new article points out that these two tests are not alternative but complementary, being able to diagnose 97% of cases, including non-european ...

MS lets get physical

MS is not chemical, it is physical. Allow me to explain. We have an excess of magnetite in our bodies. Possibly due to narrow veins, some is stored in the brain. Magnetite, as the name suggests is ferro magnetic and forms chains like the tip of a road drill. At night while we sleep these chains vibrate due to 50Hz electromagnetic fields. This produces demyelination.
To prevent this put steel wire wool in a plastic ...
