CCSVI/Beetroot juice

For those who cannot ot do not want to try CCSVI I recommend beetroot juice. Their are numerous scientific artricles proving it big benefits to cognition by increasing blood flow to the brain. It can be bought bottled in supermarkets & health shops here (AUS) though I make my own with organic beetro...

Re: Does dosage have a linear relationship with side effects

I have been taking LDN for 4 years and have had some amazing benefits. :) I have had ppms for 17 years and am allergic to everything so I did have lots of side effects- insomnia, hot hands, intensely increased spasticity. But I was fortunate in that I had some positive benefits early on so I knew I ...

Re: Newbie to ThisIsMS and about to start Avonex

I agree you 100%. I have ppms, have had it for 17 years & never done any drugs. I walk with a cane and drive. Back then they were not pushing the drugs so hard & did not believe you could benefit once you are progressive. Anyway I was so allergic I could not take anyt drug or supplement. Four years ...

Re: How long before you feel effects

I felt the first benefit after 2 weeks (was able to bend my leg in the middle of the night) and then gradually saw more and more benefits. I had lost nearly all my sense of smell and taste for 3 years. After 1 year on LDN my taste started returning. Now I have regained 80% of my taste and 50% of my ...

LDN & spasms/spasticity

After 7 months on LDN 3mg I had to stop LDN because of increasing severe spasms & intense pain all day & night. I have a baclofen pump that usually controls the pain & spasms but after having numerous tests a dye pumpogram showed that all the baclofen was leaking into the gut through a hole & not go...

I find green tea (any tea) acts like a diuretic. I stay away from it. I like the sound of vinpocetinre & will give it a try. Thanks Jack

Hi Andy, I think I am having the experience where LDN limits/restricts the effect of Baclofen? After a happy year on LDN (with a baclofen pump controlling spasms & spasticity) the spasticity went crazy. I knew there were allergy issues involved too so I addressed those first. I have also increased t...

Hi Marian, I also have interupted sleep waking every two hours. But I have improved the insomnia a lot by always eating something when I take the LDN and always taking it as early as possible - 9.00pm. This means that although I wake a lot I do go back to sleep more easily. Also I find I can sleep b...

Can I increase LDN to 4.5 if I had severe spasms?

I take 3mg of LDN and I have a baclofen pump (was very allergic to the oral baclofen) because I had very intense pain & muscle spasms. The pump has taken away all the pain and spasms which is brilliant, but even on the lowest dose it makes me shaky and my one leg is still stiff. Though at least I ca...

Insommnia - a cure?

I have found that since I have started taking the LDN early as possible i.e. after 9pm and always with some food - a banana or some progurt (not anything with sugar) I am sleeping better. Maybe others would like to try and see if it helps them
