Vitamin D protocol combined with Immune suppressants

I would like to hear from folks that had to be on other immune suppressants (other than Corticosteroids) while they waited for the vitamin D to stop the progression of their disease.
It would seem logical that blocking the immune system would be counterproductive, but D actually modulates the immune system causing genes to express in a positive manner.

My mom's disease attacks her kidneys and she is on cellcept.

Osteoporosis from Coimbra protocol - iodine and Boron

I see bone loss as one of the side effects of the Coimbra D3 protocol especially, for those that cannot exercise.

Boron is necessary for bone formation according to many studies.
Why doesn't Coimbra try using Boron to help folks with osteoporosis?
I was able to see a bone density improvement with my mom eating 4-6 prunes per day for 3 months.
Prunes are one of the highest in Boron foods.

10 prunes per day ...


LP after 5 lesions...WHY?

So I got my second MRI back and they found 5 lesions….the neuro said some of these are “classic MS” and others are not. My first MRI only had one….however now the radiologist said he could point the 5 out on that one too. The neuro said they had changed some(this was 8 months ago)
All my bloodwork to rule out anything else came back negative.
NOW she wants to do a LP….I guess I ...

presence of common vascular malformations in MS

Vertebral hemangiomas in the thoracic spine of multiple sclerosis patients are connected with fewer demyelinating lesions at the same level. Possible impact on pathophysiology and clinical course

Mechanisms of angiogenesis regulate multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions’ evolution, displaying both neuroprotective and harmful effects.

cortex lesions promoted by low flow of CSF

This is not written by conspiration theorists, but by neuropathologists:

"Demyelination in the cerebral cortex was related to inflammatory infiltrates in the meninges, which was pronounced in invaginations of the brain surface (sulci) and possibly promoted by low flow of the cerebrospinal fluid in these areas"

Fatigue not linked to other flare ups?

As i wrote in my other thread (diff diagnoses?), I'm not diagnosed yet. I'm meeting the neurologist for (hopefully) final tests on Tuesday and am trying to map and time-line my symptoms.

When thinking back I think I have had fatigue for the past year. Besides work (PhD-student, lots of cognitive pressure/activity) I am not really able to do anything else. My partner and daughter do ALL the house work while I pass out on ...

A 4 year battle- Including LOST spinal fluid..

2012 My symtoms began... all on the left side. Numbnes/tingling/decreaded sensation in left foot and in my pinky and ring fingers in my left hand (I'm left handed).I was training for (not my first) marathon and one day my left leg was giving me trouble... It felt like a desensitized "Brick". Heavy, annoying, and bothersome. The numbness and tingling got worse, and spread up my neck a little. I was EXHAUSTED weeks later. No matter ...
