The decreased H2 also causes the small diameter arteries to constrict (narrow), which contributes to the dry skin, cold feet and hands, and the common symptom of optic neuritis. Tiny blood vessels feed the optic nerve and constriction (narrowing) of these arteries can cause inadequate blood flow to the optic nerve, which can result in swelling and damage.
This explains why it is common for MS patients to do a repetitive task like repeatedly touching their thumb to each one of their fingers easier and faster at first, but after a few repetitions these movements get slower and harder to perform until finally they can’t do the task at all. Then after waiting for a brief period of time they can do the task again once the H2 gets replenished.
H2 regulates the immune system. Increased H2 and the resultant increase in cyclic AMP boost the immune system especially the T-cells and B-cells. Research shows that the H2 levels control the receptor activity on these cells and that the H2 levels are decreased during an exacerbation or chronic progression of MS. Research also shows that MS patients have an abnormally low number of T-cells during an exacerbation. This directly contradicts the autoimmune theory, that the immune system, specifically the T-cells, are hyperactive and attacking the myelin. Instead, the immune system becomes suppressed in MS due to low levels of H2 and cyclic AMP.
........................ why is it (MS) increasing so rapidly in the U.S. population (the NMSS states that an average of 200 new cases of MS are diagnosed per week in the U.S.)? Perhaps it is in part due to our diet of high carbohydrates and polyunsaturated fats like margarine, vegetable oils, etc and our trend to decrease the consumption of the saturated fats like butter and fats in red meat. High carbohydrate intake results in the body storing these excess carbohydrates in the form of triglycerides, which are just empty fat molecules...............
I'm also trying to get hold of Acetyl l-carnitine, it seems to be under ban in Canada. Lots of things that have some potential in abuse for body building seem to be under ban here, even if they have other positive theraputic uses
