Re: Revitive TENS

I recently saw a story on the news about a hospital that was achieving amazing stroke patient recoveries by forcing the patients to exercise what was lost in the stroke. For example, people who lost a lot of use of their right hand, would exercise that hand, and even put an oven mitt on the other h...

Re: Why Ocrevus is a new favorite drug by doctors?

I have not found one that stands out! And the pharmaceutical companies seem to use 'fuzzy math' to present the results of their trials. It's not just "fuzzy math" such as using relative percentages to amplify small differences. In the above data plot, there are a considerable number of "censored" d...

Re: Why Ocrevus is a new favorite drug by doctors?

The main side effects are during and post infusion. I'm one of the lucky ones that gets a rash. I also feel run down for about a week afterwards but there's a reasonable chance it's psychosomatic. I get the infusion done at the local cancer center and I find the whole thing even more depressing tha...

Re: Bovine meat and milk factors (BMMFs)

Since most people prefer NOT to eat fish regularly, especially salmon, I think the salmon population is safe for now! They're not safe from the proposed Pebble Mine. It threatens to turn pristine wilderness into a toxic wasteland and permanently impact Bristol Bay salmon fisheries. https://news.nat...

Re: RE:CLADRINE APPROVED BY FDA FOR SPM

Cladribine has an FDA black box warning that it increases cancer risk. Buyer beware.

Revitive TENS

Has anybody tried a Revitive TENS machine? It has two pads you put your feet on and then it stimulates your calf muscles to contract using a varying pattern of electrical pulses. It also has a pivoting option which allows the foot bed to rock back and forth with each muscle contraction. https://us.r...

Do doctors ever discuss this kind of thing w you? It’d be nice to get some relief and not have to be stoned out of your...

Re: Experimental Tongue Therapy Helps Restore Brain Function

I called Apollo in Ottawa and they said they should have the PoNS devices in stock by August. They put me on "the list". I also heard that the cost is around $30,000.00! This is really insane. I mean is the device made out of Gold or Platinum? Finally there is a treatment that helps and they price ...

Hi Robbie, Hi Moose I made a ceiling hoist from stuff a lot cheaper,couldnt afford the real thing. That was partly why the PSW didn't work out, no faith in my engineering skills. Makes it possible for my wife to move me around though. Disability is a rich person's game. It looks well made! https://w...

Re: has anyone heard of Digestacure ??

At $169 for a 270 count bottle, they want want you to take at least 9 capsules/day so that's just 30 days. That's an expensive, unproven supplement regimen with unproven vague medical claims which are likely in violation of FDA regulations. Besides, aloe vera extract is fairly inexpensive from suppl...
