more about vitamin D

"The main mechanisms of action of vitamin D in MS appear to be immunomodulatory, involving the various categories of T and B lymphocytes in the general immune system, but neuroprotector and neurotrophic mechanisms could also be exerted at the central nervous system level. Furthermore, several controlled immunological studies performed in MS patients have recently confirmed that vitamin D supplementation has multiple beneficial immunomodulatory effects"

Stimulating remyelination with common drugs and vitamins

I've arrested MS progression in a patient using the Wheldon protocol, however their recovery is slow and plateauing, after some early advances -- e.g. was confined to a wheelchair, could not walk, could not move arms, can now walk 20 steps, move arms, etc, along with a host of other improvements.

On doing further research, there are at least 3 fairly safe and commonly available approaches to stimulating OPC growth, which convert to oligodendrocytes, then ...

Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) vs CPn

Hi all

Have just discovered the Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) thesis as possibly the major cause of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis cases, and of course Red Hill Biopharmaceuticals are also claiming it may be the causative pathogen in MS cases.

I've recently trialled a few patients with MS with the Wheldon protocol which uses abx geared to destroying Chlamydophila pneumonia (CPn) as the presumed most likely cause, with good results so far. These ...

MS and pregnancy

today my unrelated searches landed me on studies of circadian rhythym and supplement timing influences on the nutrient content in human milk. i went looking for a suitable place to post such, and although i know childbearing/childrearing has been discussed a zillion times here on the forum, there doesn't seem to be a specific area particularly devoted to relevant content. for the time being, i plan to leave any related studies of possible interest under ...

Vitamin D improves cognition

Effect of Vitamin D Replacement on Cognition in Multiple Sclerosis Patients

http://www.nature.com/articles/srep4592 ... _supported


Multiple Sclerosis is associated with deficient serum 25 hydroxyvitamin D (25 (OH)D) level and cognitive impairment.

The aim of this study is to evaluate cognitive performance in MS patients with deficient 25 (OH)D (<25 ng/ml) compared to patients with sufficient levels (>35 ng/ml), then to evaluate the change in cognitive performance after 3 months of vitamin D3 ...

Fever and wheezing on Tec **Update**

I'm on day 3 of taking three 120mg per day (two in the am, one in the pm).

I'm titrating very slowly because it's killing my stomach.

Anyway about 2 hours after the morning dose I started wheezing, bad enough that I can't lie down. I also have a dry cough.

I thought it could be reflux so I took some Gaviscon, which helped the tummy but not the breathing.

Now I have a headache, ...
