Re: The Brave Dreams clinical trial of venous PTA

My wife had 3 CCSVI treatments about 6 years ago. The first one helped noticeably for about 4 months, the other 2 did little if anything. I think there is definitely something to the whole CCSVI issue, but we don't have the real answer yet. Perhaps lymphatic drainage is also part of the puzzle.

Why do you need rice bran?

Re: Biotin (B7 vitamin) reverses disability

This is old news, but still good news. Biotin is no magic bullet, but can help some people.

Re: New treatment forum - Biotin

I believe that high biotin in your blood affects the chemical the lab uses in many of it's tests. I don't think it affects the thyroid itself, but i could be wrong.

Genetic link to vitamin D & MS

Haven't had a chance to decipher this yet, but looks very interesting.

what's with wheat

I just watched this on Netflix the other night - pretty interesting film. Dr Terry Wahls has a big part in it. If you can believe everything in this film, you'll never eat gluten again!

Do it yourself lymph drainage

I don't know if this will help CCSVI issues, but it may be worth trying.

Re: Help! Recently diagnosed. Now what?

Recommending 5000-10,000 of D3 is certainly not irresponsible. Yes, it's great to try and have a healthy intake of zinc, B vitamins, and particularly magnesium with MS, taking 10,000 units of D a day is in no way dangerous. My wife is being treated by Dr Michael Holick, one of the world's most respe...

Re: Help! Recently diagnosed. Now what?

Sorry to hear about your dx, but it's not the end of the world. First off, find out what kind of MS you have. RRMS is the most common, but SPMS and PPMS are also possible, depending on your symptoms. A no brainer is to immediately start taking vitamin D3 in fairly large doses (5000-10000 a day). Lot...

LDN does not help everyone. Also look at Dr Coimbra's vitamin D treatment, and MedDay's biotin treatment.

Re: Vitamin D and MS

There is a wealth of information as well as a book on the Dr Coimbra protocol. Currently, there are no neuros in the US who will work with this protocol (there are over 30 in South America and Europe). However, there are two docs in Florida who are Dr Coimbra trained, and are prescribing the protoco...
