Re: Multiple Sclerosis Desatascador

If I search the website you alluded to for Desatascador I find this: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dgarden&field-keywords=Desatascador+&rh=n%3A1055398%2Ck%3ADesatascador+ None of these fits the verbal description you gave.

Re: Multiple Sclerosis Desatascador

I don't mean to be rude but this thing sounds like a scam. A desatascador is a plunger. What does that have to do with MS? And the author is very evasive about answering questions as to how it works.

Re: Multiple Sclerosis Desatascador

The English translation of Desatascador is "plunger pipe cleaner nitric acid or caustic soda etc. used to clear blocked drains nitric acid used to clear blocked drains "

May I ask what this has to do with MS?

Re: Right to Try Act

In Australia we have "compassionate grounds" laws which allow access to unapproved treatments, and you don't need to be terminally ill to have access
Seems to me like the Australians have it right. But at least this legislation is a step in the right direction.

Right to Try Act

New legislation known as the "Right to Try Act" will allow terminally ill patients to try drugs that might help them even though the drugs have not been formally approved by the FDA. Do you agree with that legislation? http://time.com/5295636/trump-bill-terminal-patients-unproven-drugs/ https://www....

Re: How did your walking issues start? Trouble with walking

Hi Tashs For the record I have PPMS. My earliest symptoms were very minor, just some numbness in the thumb and fingers of my left hand. Two years later I got the l'hermitte's sign. That lasted about 1 week and thankfully never came back. That's about the time when I was Dxed with MS. That was 22 yea...

So various diets eliminate different foods.

Re: HERE'S WHY M.S ACTUALLY LYME DISEASE

I'm open to the idea that Big Pharma is not interested in finding a cure because they make more money selling their crappy DMDs. But this article offers no proof that MS is actually Lime Disease. Personally I was Dxed with MS 22 years ago. Since then I've been on a variety of antibiotics for various...

Inspiration

Sometimes we need a little inspiration. I admit there have been times when I thought of putting a bullet through my head, not because of how I am now but out of fear of what I might become. This man's condition is my worst fear. But He's found a reason for living and a zest for life. Mitch Albom: Ho...

Re: A new concept and treatment options for MS

But recent new insights supported by an abundance of publications in the medical literature change this. MS is no longer that big unknown, is not in its origin a neurological disease, but is a metabolic disease caused by a virus, the herpes virus.
Leonard where is the proof of that?

Re: Is saturated fat bad for people diagnosed with PPMS ??

That's kinda the direct opposite of my diet. I follow Dr McDougal's Theory. He says animal tissue can produce antibodies that can pass through the BBB and damage nerve tissues. His diet is 80% starch--potatoes, rice, etc and 20% veggies. Absolutely no meat, chicken, fish or dairy. I've been on it a...

Governments in the US, Mexico and Canada are run by crooks. Of course that's just my opinion.

Re: EBV reported 100% in a MS croatian sample

This is another study that makes EBV look like the smoking gun. But when you look at the underlying numbers it's not so certain. The study included 2022 participants. If these people represent a random cross section of Croatians then only about 3 of them were likely to have MS. (The prevalence of MS...

Re: Question about PPMS diagnosis and disease course

ebrownkirkland

Sorry for being so late in my response. To answer your question I'm 69 years old. MS was dxed when I was 47. In the early stages it's hard to tell what type it is. It took a few years before the PPMS pattern was obvious.
