As a Multiple Sclerosis patient, it has become necessary for me to reinvent myself. I have ... and continue to ... refuse to lie down and die, or in this case, follow the normally prescribed drugs and treatments that do nothing to defeat my disease. I am not only surviving by pursuing alternatives, I am thriving. I do the things specialists told me I would never be able to do. I walk and hope to one day even run regularly. I retain my cognitive and creative abilities for the pleasure of my readers. Although you may never see me on my daily walk, you are welcome to read my novel(s) and in doing so, come to ask yourself, "How can the 'out of the box' protocol she has followed, help my loved one with an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis?"

MS - Vitamins and Herbs

There are a lot of theories out there. I include only the ones I have used or am considering.
Key: Ones I have used in italics.
Ones I continue to use in Bold.

Colon cleanse See post.
Vitamin C Only during cold and flu season
LBS II This herbal combination is a product of Natures Sunshine. I can get it for you if you pay for Tax and shipping. This combination has often and lovingly referred to as "Poop Pills" Trust me on this one.
Vitamin B-complex I didn't see a difference but am concidering using it again.
Pycnogenol This can be purchased may places and in many forms.
Lecithin I swear by this one and probably ought to devote a whole post to it. This is nerve food and helps heal in the brain!!!!
Herbal CA Again this is a Natures Sunshine product. Basically it is an herbal form of calcium.
Chlorophyll (1/3 cup every day) Must be refrigerated so I tend to forget it when I have it.
Eight ATC Another Natures sunshine product. I now use Nerve Control instead.
Talk to me in person or via email if you are interested in more details of these above mentioned vitamins and herbs.

Keep in mind that MS is different for every one. What works for one is not necessarily good for another. I encourage you to consult your Maker, in whatever form you worship for guidance. For me, Heavenly Father created my body, He and my body know what it needs. It is my mission to figure out what they are telling me.

As to the theories of cures out there . . .

I have joked about going out into the desert during a lightening storm with a lightening rod in one hand and a live scorpion in the other. Sure one of them will cure me or kill me. Either way I'm out of my misery!

Notice I say I've joked about it.

The one theory that I am sceptically considering is Bee Pollen. I'm open to input on that one, preferably from someone who has tried it.
