I will not become argumentative with you.. the thought process on bee stings is that they release histamine into the body..
I'm sorry if you feel that I'm "arguing" with you. That's not my intent at all. I will, however, correct info about Prokarin that is posted since I am fairly familiar with it.
Bee stings cause the body to release the H1 receptor. Prokarin releases, in a slowly controlled manner, the H2 receptor. These receptors have different effects on the body.
I knew of many ms patients on the prokarin patch... none stayed on it.
My neuro was open minded and did a very large and positive newspaper article on it.
Many MS patients have tried Prokarin and many have come off it for various reasons. While it does help some patients a lot, it does nothing for others. It is nice to hear that your neuro is opened minded because many are not. I've run into my share of neuros who are not.
I have always been very proactive in my disease. Do not question me on this...
Please point out to me where I have questioned your proactivity intentions. I have commented on some of your Prokarin statements...nothing more and nothing less. If you do not want to be questioned on what you may post, then perhaps ThisIsMS is not the venue for you. Everyone here gets questioned on what they may say and that is one of the reasons that it is one of the best MS forums out there. Over the years that I have participated here, there have been many situations where various posters have had disagreements over their opinions. But in the vast majority of cases, the disagreements have been cordial and a lot of info has been shared because of them.
I am very well aware of Elaine's diet and the patch. She failed to tell this until the patch was failing on so many people ...........they all then had the same chance to.........follow her diet advice and continue the patch.
I certainly can't comment on what your experience was with Elaine and at what point in the development of Prokarin you tried the patch. I do know that my wife's experience with her was very positive in the 7 years that she used the patch before she passed away from other complications. I do know as well that the quality of the histamine phosphate from the supplier at one point had a lot of problems and caused a number of issues.
This is MY experience and your not any one to question it,as you don't know me.
Hey, ease up a bit! I, nor do I think anybody else here, is questioning your experience. But like I said earlier in this post, you have to be prepared to have others comment on what you may say about the various treatments on MS or anything else for that manner. This is a sharing site and very few people ever feel threatened. Take care.
