I wonder if this might help MS?

A treatment that has restored the movement of patients with chronic Parkinson's disease has been developed by Canadian researchers. Previously housebound patients are now able to walk more freely as a result of electrical stimulation to their spines. A quarter of patients have difficulty walking as ...

Re: Andrographolides. Does anybody know what is that?

interesting. It looks like the trial was completed in 2017, but no results were posted- not encouraging. Andrographolide seems to be an extract of the green chireta plant, which is used for medicinal purposes in southeast asia. Here's a little more info: https://www.ms-uk.org/Plant_may_help_patients...

Re: Best Bet Diet from movie Living Proof

David, realize that there are gluten free options for pasta, bread, and pizza. They are all quite good, especially the pasta. Ronzoni makes a gluten free pasta that could pass for the real thing. There are dairy free substitutes for milk and cheese, although the cheese is marginal.

Re: Interesting General info on Magnesium

I agree that magnesium is critical, especially if you are doing a lot of vitamin D. However, it's a turn off to see a doctor touting benefits of a supplement, and then selling them on the same web site.

Very interesting. Japanese knotweed is one of the most aggressive, difficult to eradicate, invasive plants in the world.

Re: New member seeking help

For pain, CBD oil is very helpful, it may also help with MS in general. CBD oil is perfectly legal and safe, with no narcotic effect. Have you had your vitamin D level checked? Taking 10,000 IU a day is safe and the max you can take without a doctor's intervention. There is a protocol - Dr Coimbra's...

Very interesting. looks like vitamin D may protect against leaky gut - something that Aston Embry was talking about 10 years ago.

Re: Dr. Coimbra Protocol

I'm not a doctor, but I'm not sure that being on a constant detox regimen is the best for your body. It's not even part of the true Coimbra protocol.

Re: Vitamin D intoxication due to intake of ultra-high doses

I'm not a doctor, but I've done a tremendous amount of research on this, since my wife is being treated for MS with 70,000 IU of vitamin D daily under the care of Dr Holick at Boston Medical Center. Dr Holick is considered one of the medical world's leading experts on all things vitamin D, and has m...

Re: Fed up PRMS looking for anything !!

The vitamin D protocol is not a 'diet' type treatment. If you read the technical papers on this, the theory is that people with ms have a resistance to getting vitamin D in their cells due to genetic issues. Vitamin D is really a harmone, and is crucial to all kinds of functions. By taking massive d...

Re: Fed up PRMS looking for anything !!

Have you considered Dr Coimbra's vitamin D protocol?
There are currently tens of thousands of MS patients on this protocol around the world, and dozens of web sites.

Great pics! I have always been curious about Mt Tremblant. It looks beautiful - very European. It looks like there is a paved bike trail? We frequently visit the Eastern Townships as there are miles and miles of perfectly flat, paved bike trails thru beautiful farm country. My wife had the CCSVI pro...

Re: US vs Canada

According to Dr Coimbra and several other doctors, not only is geography a factor, but apparently many people have a genetic quirk that makes them resistant to properly assimilating vitamin D. This is the basis of the Coimbra protocol which advocates massive doses of D. From what I've read, 20 minut...

Re: Progressive MS symptoms leading up to not being able to

Two things that might help - Dr Coimbra's vitamin D protocol, the high dose biotin protocol. Plenty of info on both if you google them.
