but there is a lot of data out there which questions the value of vaccinations, that they may be causing more health issues than they solve and I suspect they do have a contributory role in rising allergy rates & autoimmune disease.
Soy, shellfish, peanut allergy are up there as most common and all these products are used in the vaccination serums, so the result may be that we are merely vaccinating people against food products.
This is not to even consider the use of aluminium as the adjuvant in many vaccinations and it is toxic to the human body.

After Crohn's diagnosis in late 80's I began taking yearly flu vaccine as advised by doctors. Exactly 5 days after having flu shot in 2003 I began experiencing first MS symptoms. Diagnosed with MS 7 months later. Gastroenenterologist I hold in high regard suspects the onset of first MS symptoms after flu shot point towards the flu shot as the likely cause of my MS. I firmly believe the vaccine played at least a role in the disease . . . . the trigger perhaps? Also believe stress was involved as well.

Hi and welcome. So sorry you're finding yourself here.
You are not alone in wondering if there is a connection. The vaccine you received was for Hep. B, and there's been a lot of research and debate over whether or not this particular vaccine is involved with MS.
http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/Vaccin ... hep_b.html
There are lots of environmental triggers known to be involved in MS progression or worsening of symptoms. Some of the ones we know about, that have peer-reviewed science behind them, are EBV, vitamin D levels, obesity, lack of sleep, salt intake, processed foods, and latitude.
Vaccinations raise levels of inflammation in the body, and also limit vasodilation, so blood flow becomes hampered.
All of the environmental factors I mentioned above do the same--by creating endothelial dysfunction.
Here's a study where they gave participants a typhoid vaccine and watched what happened. There was a pro-inflammatory cytokine response, increased oxidative stress and the blood vessels constricted, due to interference in nitric oxide. This was enough for the researchers to say it created a temporary high cardiovascular risk.

I put together some research to help my husband feel like himself again. Seven years past his MS dx, he's had no progression and is doing really well. Maybe some of the ideas might help you. http://ccsvi.org/index.php/helping-myse ... ial-health

Thank you for the information. I do not have these conversations with anyone except my husband, and I know it is hard for him as well. I am loving this site, so much information that I know little about, and now am wondering about things I have not thought of. I am in my 3rd year with RRms I do take self injections of avonex. I am deciding on Tecfidera (bg12). I believe that I will make that call the first of next week. Boy I truly wish there was a simple answer.
I do believe much of what you are saying. Before I started avonex, my neuro and rn told me, years before dmd, people with ms advanced to ppms rapidly, and that I see that in our population. I could see the older generation without dmd, and now look at our population since dmd. That was the reasoning I was given... so that was a quick choice for me. Did I want to become worse fast, or slow the progression down. I choice avonex, now that same thought goes through my head, now thinking the pill to slow progression even more. Guess what it boils down to is that I am scared. I love the youtube videos you sent. Thank you very much. I wonder where to find the ingredients in bg12, and the adverse effects? Drug store? One last thing, you said I could get better. Do you mean through diet alone?

I just went out and bought a book on healing ms naturally, it has Terry Wahls, best bet diet amoung other practices as well. Thanks for the insight. I do have 1 more question for you. How do we know that the diet worked, or if it was just in remission until another flareup finds us.
Have you read the doctors prescribing information pamphlet for Tecfidera?MSandI wrote:I wonder where to find the ingredients in bg12, and the adverse effects? Drug store?

Fact is that I had Hep. vaccination in 2001 and was diagnosed with MS in 2004.
The bad gut had already developed before 2001 but the trigger might be a combination of factors.
I to have leaky gut, before MS... then I entered the medical field and it is mandatory for the twinrex shots as well as the TB shots, flu shots.. and I can not remember how many others. Fast forward 8 months and let my nightmare begin. Do you live in France? This has always been my theory but no will listen to me. So when I found this site, I thought someone, just maybe could share my feelings. We have so much in common, I have tears in my eyes. Please tell me how you are, what you do to help yourself, are you rrms? So many questions!! Is there anyone else here that shares these thoughts. Leonard my name is Ann, pleased to meet you.
