Curcumin research

http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=news&dbid=43

Enjoyed the above, but not exactly a scholarly article. Anyone see anything regarding curcumin's neuroprotective effects in a medical journal?

Research research research

No offense to anyone here, but I'm inclined to take Dr. Klenners advice with a grain of salt. I looked him up as recommended and the biggest and first thing I read about him was his claims involving Vitamin C as a cure for polio (along with a long list of other diseases) in the late 1940's and into the 1950's. The dose that he claims to have given his patients both the intravenous and ...

Fenofibrate/Tricor diary and AO realignment (RRMS)

Since I can't get a CRH inhibitor, I decided to go further upstream in my attempts to stop the hpa-axis activation. My clonidine experiment leads me to believe something other than regular stress is stimulating hpa-axis. The clonidine worked very well but I had to stop because it was making my blood pressure too low. Slowly and sneakily symptoms started returning. I tried clonidine again and symptoms abated just like when I first started. So, ...

B vitamins

I've been looking into vitamins etc to make sure I'm not missing anything that could help my MS. This site has been really helpful in my background research. For example, i'm going to balance my D, zinc, mag. I'm also interested in B vits and have a few questions;

- there are many B vits - are there any that I should be concentrating on more than others? I'm going to ask my GP for ...

What do you do when you have a flare up?

I am lucky enough that I have not had any flare-ups since those involved with my initial diagnosis. During the first several months, anytime I noticed something weird, like tingling or numbness, or something off with my vision, I would mention to my doctor and ask if it was a flare up.

His response was that there wasn't a real way to be sure...he said he had weird tingling in his leg sometimes but he ...

Inosine and neural growth

Hi,

I'm surprised to report that there may be more to Inosine than just being the precursor to Uric acid.
I learned from this board that uric acid is an antioxidant, usually low in people with MS and helpful to protect against bladder infections etc.

I started taking Inosine as a way to jump start my uric acid.
Then I took the word Inosine as a search term to pub med central and discovered that ...

Nitric Oxide and MS

Calabrese, V., G. Scapagnini, et al. (2003). "Disruption of thiol homeostasis and nitrosative stress in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with active multiple sclerosis: evidence for a protective role of acetylcarnitine." Neurochem Res 28(9): 1321-8.

Recent studies suggest that NO and its reactive derivative peroxynitrite are implicated in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS). Patients dying with MS demonstrate increased astrocytic inducible nitric oxide synthase activity, as well as increased levels of iNOS mRNA. Peroxynitrite ...

Clonidine Diary (for RRMS)

I put on my first patch yesterday @ 4:30pm. Less than 24 hours later I have noticed positive effects.

I'm not getting hungry-sick. You know, the dizzy, dying feeling you get when you don't eat soon enough? My appetite is greatly decreased. I am hungry at the right times but get full much faster. I was able to do the Walmart marathon and go out to lunch without experiencing the usual activity induced buzzing in ...
