I know about magnesium and zinc and I am constantly making sure that our diet includes them even though it's hard.
In the hospital there was a female doctor that made me look like I am denying life saving treatment for my own child. Because of her, both my daughter and the rest of my family demanded the interferons. It wasn't until we came home when I got them to read about the side effects and asked them if they really want the injections. I had to fight with my own family over this. Can you imagine how I felt, all alone and right after the diagnosis? But I knew that if a woman with a progressive case (who was using traditional medicines before) was able to get off a recliner and started walking again using diet, I could use the same diet and keep my daughter's disease from progressing. And I am sure my daughter will be fine.
I am also convinced that the heme iron or luck of it is behind ms.
Here is a study that can help you understand my point:http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/72/4/982.full
“””So why did short-term absorptive adaptation occur for nonheme iron [even in subjects with low iron stores ] and not for heme iron? Perhaps it is because iron bound in heme is not as oxidatively reactive as free iron, and the intestinal mucosa may not need to defend against ingested heme iron to the same degree as it does with nonheme iron. Mucosal ferritin may provide a localized cytosolic defense against oxidative generation of potentially toxic free radicals by sequestering and storing excess nonheme iron, and reducing iron catalysis of Fenton-type reactions producing free radicals both inside mucosal cells and in the intestinal lumen. Consistent with this, iron supplementation increased the free radical–producing capacity of feces in healthy volunteers and increased breath ethane, an indicator of oxidative damage in vivo, in women with low iron stores. In epidemiologic studies, iron intake was associated with risk of colon cancer. Further studies are needed to test whether short-term adaptation in iron absorption with iron supplementation represents, in part, a localized protective mechanism.”””
There is not even one study that would show heme iron as bad iron, everywhere there is problem with iron it is always non heme.
