Re: Bowen technique question

Thanks Scott1 I had to check those muscles - hadn't heard of them! :) I had a starter session then a full session two weeks later - so sort of two almost. Not sure I will dare to go back to be honest. I feel dreadful. It feels like t10-t12 area and when I lie on my left side the pain on the right in...

Bowen technique question

I wanted to ask if anyone has had this therapy? I went to see someone who does anatomical alignment work and he also does Bowen. As part of the session he did some Bowen therapy work on me. I am just asking because I have not felt the same since and I don't know if it's a coincidence. I've had pains...

Re: Best Bet Diet from movie Living Proof

Oh goodness David, you did 6 months and gave up? It's a huge change, I applaud you for that. And I agree about the gluten-free pizza being cardboard-like! :( I haven't seen the movie. One thing I do know is that for those who are able. keep up the exercise. Never step back because as soon as you do,...

Re: Trigeminal neuralgia = MS?

Hi Dololo TN would be unmistakable if you had it. It's called the suicide disease for a reason. You would not be able to eat, talk when at its worst. It's like having and road digger trying to pull your tooth out. It is a flareup disease and yes I agree with Scott1 about the link with Herpes simplex...

Re: Simvastatin trial for SPMS in UK recruiting

I was offered this but decided against it. It's a long study to find out that you've been on a placebo.

Re: Trigeminal neuralgia = MS?

Hi Dololo

I am sorry to hear that you have TN. I was diagnosed with MS many years ago - the TN happened in 2014.

I am echoing what my fellow TiMS members have said above - please do go and see your doc and ask to see a neurologist.

Best wishes and let us know how you get on.

Re: 2019 study: new MS nutrition/antioxidant insights

https://www.cottercrunch.com/roasted-red-pepper-bisque-dairy-free/ This is just an aside - the recipe if anyone is interested. I didn't use coconut milk - I made it with a tomato base so used tinned tomatoes instead and I didn't have any starch either. But it was very comforting and made me feel bet...

Re: Health Benefits of the Kohlrabi vegetable-Like a Natural Growing Multi-Vitamin!

Ah I love kohlrabi. I can recommend just slicing it and sprinkling salt and eating it this way. Or with some olives and tomatoes. I have never tried this cooked.

I thought this might be the best alternative to broccoli which is not as tasty as it is also a cruciferous vegetable.

Good luck!

Re: MS review: The division of MS in "types" was made up just to approve interferons

Hi Frodo Strange to see this today as I was reading a blog over the weekend that is run by a UK neurologist. It makes for depressing reading but I gathered that RR types may be progressive. This makes sense but I question whether progressive types may also have a degree of active MS because they are...

Re: 2019 study: new MS nutrition/antioxidant insights

I need to come back to this later but can vouch for the red bell peppers when I made a recipe with two and garlic and other ingredients in a tomato (instead of cream) base. Great when you're feeling under the weather (=not v well). Shall try and find it if anyone is interested

Re: 2019 study: new MS nutrition/antioxidant insights

Thanks Jimmylegs This is just a questionnaire - as the authors say it depends on how true the responses were. That takes some credibility away as some might not want to admit they had a box of chocolates because they were feeling pissed off with life/the hubby/the boss/etc! When I read that MS patie...

Re: Simvastatin Trial & ponderings

I realise there is no real question here and if I am honest I wasn't expecting specific answers. I came home and read other MS boards with people saying they had been given MS drugs that helped reverse disability - but that these are not available to those who are SP. I've never been offered a DMD, ...

Simvastatin Trial & ponderings

Hi folks I went for an assessment of suitability for the phase III trial of simvastatin today. Having gone over my MS history, I am left feeling really unsure of anything. Does anyone really know what helps MS? All the food I stopped eating after the diagnosis, and all the supplements I now take, an...
