Anyone tried Chelation Therapy?

My BF has had Progressive MS for 5 years and is interested in trying Chelation Therapy to eradicate lead and heavy metals out of his body (career as plumber, high exposure to lead).

J Interferon Cytokine Res. 2016 Jun;36(6):347-57. doi: 10.1089/jir.2015.0177. Epub 2016 May 4.


Abstract

Axon regeneration in the mature mammalian central nervous system (CNS) is extremely limited after injury. Consequently, functional deficits persist after spinal cord injury (SCI), traumatic brain injury, stroke, and related conditions that involve axonal disconnection. This situation differs from that in the mammalian peripheral nervous system (PNS), where long- distance axon regeneration and substantial ...

More questions

So I went for my EMG. It wasn't comfortable but not bad. Afterwards, he said it was normal and didn't detect and nerve damage ( I guess that was redundant lol) but anyway.... What does that mean other than the obvious?

Tecfidera and Lymphopenia

Hello everyone,

I've had rather stable MS since being diagnosed 14 years ago (initial severe exacerbation followed by a few minor relapses after the births of my two kids). Previous drugs were Rebif, Betaseron and Copaxone. The interferons destroyed my thyroid and the Copaxone went well for 3 years before giving me several episodes of the dreaded pseudo-heart attack syndrome.

I went on Tecfidera shortly after it was approved in 2013 and it has been ...

WalkAide

Has anyone had success with this system? I have been tried for the bioness l300 but I cannot afford something that pricey (was quoted $9000). I haven't tried the walkaide and am thinking about setting up an apt to try it out, but I already know it has a $5000 self pay price point and there is no way I could afford that at this time. Are there places you can go to buy used ...

Handicap permit

Hello all, I am wondering if it is difficult to obtain a handicap parking permit? I will be starting back at school soon and had trouble last semester having to park far away from the building. I called my specialist to see if she believes I will qualify, but I want to know if anyone else has had luck with this while I wait for her to get back to me.

Thanks! ...
