black patent shoes - dancing with ms

by eva marsh. basically spans 1963-1994. an encouraging read. focusses on determined physio/visualization for remyelination. good to be able to relate. one of her attacks was just like this first one of mine. particularly killer for me because of the connections - same locations in ontario, same hos...

my 2 cents on dhea

hi here's my first impression re: dhea -manufactured in adrenal glands -healthy adrenals synthesize cholesterol to make it (and use vitamin b5) -adrenals fatigued by stress/excess cortisol can't effectively make the dhea - cortisol production hogs the goodies required SO, i would think stress reduct...

vit d 'n' me

i take approx 4000IU of D per day. have not had my levels tested yet - it's in the works. my doc at the ms clinic looked at my vitamin list and he agreed with the D. don't think he cared much about the rest of it tho!

b12 "news"

FIVE HUNDRED. pass it on to everyone you know who doesn't have ms yet! or alzheimer's (another illness as...

diets/gluten/healing etc

hi park! i'm 35 fem recently diagnosed and my 2cents are: eat right, now! don't wait for diagnosis, just look at where you can improve your diet and exercise and maybe you can head off further decline while the doctors dither. i think i've read it elsewhere on this site but will restate that some el...

progesterone, insulin, diet, abstracts

hi there thanks for your info :) i know you are correct about the body making some of its own cholesterol but what i don't know is whether our bodies make enough for everything when you don't include dietary cholesterol for over a decade. i don't imagine good diet will help in only a few weeks - it ...

more on cobalamin

pointers re: endocrine role in ms?

hi i just recently got onto the non-autoimmune idea. while i've been looking at diet from the get-go, now i'm looking at how diet influences our body's hormone balance which can in turn affect ms. (3rd trimester studies). i think it was wikipedia where i read that our body builds progesterone (eleva...

cyano- vs methyl- cobalamin, sublingual, IV, etc

yep if u get sublingual b12 u want methylcobalamin which ur bod can use and apparently can also easily convert to adenosylcobalamin. cyanocobalamin is the most commonly sold form of oral or over-the-counter injectable b12. u can get sublingual methylcobalamin lozenges from natural factors and others...
