Is it true? It could be bacteriostatic?

I don't know why, but it just upset me, it seems like such a weird thing> Does that mean others got cold sores etc?

My doctor is truly great, and in fact warned me to be alert that if I was feeling crappy or depressed it was the shingles, not a slide down the MS side of the hill. Which is in fact what I'm feeling now. He said its easy to forget that a ...

LJM antibiotic log/start

I have also started on antibiotics and hope to periodically post the results.

I had a flu in Jan/05 that developed into a wierd neurological symptoms including numb hands, arms and torso and neck: extreme weakness and imbalance: hyperactive reflexes. A spinal tap showed oligoclonal banding and I'm waiting for an MRI. I've been advised the event was either transitory myelitis or MS.

I read David Wheldon's regime and spoke to Charles Stratton at Vanderbilt. ...

Low-sat fat diet, omega-3s, ALA, statin, Ginkgo, Copaxone

My first exacerbation was in 1996, so I have had MS now for 8 1/2 years. I have had a total of four exacerbations, each milder than the last. I have no disabilty, and no symptoms of MS, and my last exacerbation was three years ago.

However, I have no idea whether to credit my regimen for my good health thus far. I strongly suspect someone else with more aggressive disease might have followed my ...

Tman’s antibiotic journey.

In 8/04 I had Lhermitte’s sign and numb fingers. 10/04 had MRI with 3 lesions on brain and one spinal cord lesion in the neck area. The lesion in the neck was enhanced, but there was no enhancement fluid used for the brain MRI. I had a spinal tap that came out negative. The neurologist said I had an 80% chance of getting a MS diagnosis in a year or two.

I had developed another ...

Additions to supplement list in my first post!

If you look at the first of my postings in "Anecdote's Personal treatment Regime" you will see that I have made some additions to the supplements list. These are in no way compulsory, but I have found them very beneficial, especially when you get onto the metronodizole. It means you don't have to take so much of the other supplements as well!

Designing an exercise programme for a participant with MS

Though multiple sclerosis can be a challenging health condition both physically and psychologically, research has shown that a person's level of physical fitness, psychological disposition and general quality of life can improve with regular physical activity, strength training, and flexibility exercises. As Johnson says, despite ongoing hopes for a cure for multiple sclerosis, "exercise is universally available and can be readily designed for virtually any level of neurological disability"

That's from http://www.ncpad.org/disability/fact_sheet.php?sheet=187&section=1382. The site is ...
