some ramblings

I went back to my university this summer and thought I would do some reading on MS. My school has one of the ten largest libraries in the US with about 12 million volumes and is connected to a high ranking medical school. We had about 750 books on MS. But, I couldn't believe this, only about six or so were in the actual library...the rest, even recently published ones, were in an off-site storage ...

goats milk?

any thoughts. I am dairy free. I hate the taste. But I saw some lady on youtube who claimed it helped her MS. I know it has selenium, helps with copper absorption, and is similar to human milk.

Tecfidera, my blog

Hi there,

I'll try to keep it updated and cover more about ...

My question: I have been on Tecfidera for roughly 9 weeks (2 months; 1 week). For the passed month I have been experiencing terrible light headedness. Not as much dizzy, no vertigo, just as if my blood sugar ...

Tecfidera side effect: hair loss?

I have been experiencing a major increase in the amount of hair that I naturally lose from washing hair/brushing hair. It started a few weeks ago but seems to be gradually getting worse. My thyroid levels are good and haven't had any crazy I'm assuming this is a side effect of Tecfidera. I haven't seen a lot of other people experiencing the same thing on this particular medication though. Luckily I had really thick ...

Ebola virus

Before long they will be asking us to get the Ebola vaccine. It is important to understand the risk vs the benefits. If you plan on exchanging bodily fluids with and effected person then you may want the vaccine. As far me I would rely on large amounts of vitamin C which has been effective in killing all viruses.
