My husband's new doctor wants him to start LDN, so you're timing is perfect! I have read much of the research, and it makes sense to me. As an opiate inhibitor, it forces the pituitary gland to "wake up." MSers have depleted pituitaries, and autopsies show smaller pituitary glands.
We may begin as soon as next week. He may/may not try taking a break from the Copaxone. We'll see!
I would love to see a picture of your family's olive grove. Maybe post on the picture thread when you have a chance. I've never been to Greece, and hope to travel with the family one day.
I'm SO glad to hear of your wife's progress.
Blessings to you both,
Well it seems we communicate some way although our families have never meat!
Start the LDN ASAP and hope you'll see the positive results soonly, it doesn't interfere with copaxone but if you don't want to continue the devastating injections as my wife stop it after LDN show remarkable results.
My wife has had introductory problems, old symptoms reappeared periodically but lasted no more than one two weeks and where mild, this for the first 1-1.5 month.
I thought they were new relapses but as she recovered easily according to some other LDN users and Dr Bob Lawrence she decided to continue it and avoid steroids (it took only once oral prednizolone before LDN).
Dr Maria Gironi - Italy in her recearch (published in the last AAN) found that LDN needs 2-3 months to stabilize bodys endorphins to normal or above normal levels and even if you stop it after a period of 6 months it conitnues it's work for some time!
Be carefull to buy it from reliable pharmacy and use a filler that your husband can tolerate, we take it from Skip's with avicel (cellulose) filler as calcium carbonate delay it's absorption and lactose cause intolerance, I'd like to try acidophilus as filler but as we are far away from USA we have no choices either!
Just for your info from 5 friends with MS I know here in Greece it stoped completely illnes progression - they all follow some type of BBD or modified Swank diet and take supplements.
Unfortunately I have no pictures from family's olive grove here in Thessaloniki where I live only some pictures from the village I grow up in central Greece, I'll post them!
All the best to you and Jeff...
