From the herpes virus research front (HERV)

Antibody response against HERV-W env surface peptides differentiates multiple sclerosis and neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29204291

Abstract

Jugular Anomalies in MS associated with collateral flow

Jugular Anomalies in Multiple Sclerosis Are Associated with Increased Collateral Venous Flow

http://www.ajnr.org/content/early/2017/05/25/ajnr.A5219

CONCLUSIONS: Compared with healthy controls, patients with MS exhibit reduced venous flow in the main extracerebral drainage vein (internal jugular vein). In contrast, flow in the paraspinal venous collaterals is elevated in patients with MS and exacerbated by venous stenosis. Collateral drainage may be a compensatory response to internal jugular vein flow reduction.


slamming the zinc reference range

they say zinc just gradually 'gets lower' as part of the aging process. but what does that mean exactly? lower than what? how do we know when to take action?

to my mind, zinc (and other) 'normal' ranges are massively and ultimately unethically deceptive

case in point. here is a selection of zinc reference or normal ranges

Zinc, Serum

Normal serum zinc is 0.66 to 1.10 ...

Nystagmus

I have a question about nystagmus. I tend to notice mine when I am really focusing on something, like when I am reading, for example, and my eyes will jerk left to right really quickly. Sometimes they'll just jerk once or twice, and sometimes they'll go back and forth a few times before they stop. I don't remember when this started, but I do know it's been happening for awhile. My mother never has this, ...

Long shot but I thought I’d ask...

So I’ve been very hesitant over the the last 3 years to come to this kind of speculation, but it’s been bothering me for a long time.

So my mother had ms and as far I was told, I would never get ms, which I still want to believe however, in the recent years, things have gotten worse health wise.

So around 3 years ago, After I started driving for a year, I stopped being ...
