Re: Diet that mimics fasting may reduce MS symptoms

My wife (age 67, original dx 1995) and I have fasted 48+ hours for perhaps half a dozen times in the past 12 months. During these fasts, her only food is jicama, which she eats to allow her to take the hydrocodone that diminishes pain resulting from falls. I recorded these observations from a fast e...

Re: USC Study: Fasting three days renews entire immune syste

Moving in molasses

My lovely lady, Linda, (age 61 dx 15 years ago) often reported "moving in molasses" in recent years. I quizzed her about it again tonight and she said that it was like being in a pool of cool (not cold) molasses. Movement was possible, but difficult. Perhaps others have reported something similar in...

Bioness report

My wife uses a Bioness L 300 daily. We have had it since spring of this year. In Linda's case, her left leg is fairly rigid from spasticity. The Bioness unit makes it possible for her left foot to lift as she walks. Walking is still not easy for her, but the Bioness unit gives her quite a bit more m...
