    The Wahls Protocol

    My symptoms have been flaring up on me this week so I've picked up my book again on "The Wahls Protocol."  I had slacked off on taking my supplements as I normally take them and have been eating more things in the dairy category again.  This week has been a wake up call for me.  Is there anybody who would care to share again how they are doing with this protocol?  I'd love to hear how this...
  • I want to remind everyone that when vit D levels are deficient your body cannot fight off an attack. I've had only two exacerbations and one silent one since RRMS diagnosis in 1996. All were when my vit D levels were deficient and when I ate lots of gluten. I even was in a wheelchair for 3 months the end of 96. For some reason my Neurologist was less concerned with vit d and diet than getting me...

It can help fibromyalgia, RA, crohns, adhd, it literally heals from the inside out for just general health and if you've tried everything, try Juice Plus. It is whole food, gluten free, non-GMO, and it has changed my life. My fatigue is tolerable, I sleep so much better, my thyroid...

    Mood Swings and MS

    Hi all,I just joined and need advice. My husband has MS and his moods are up and down, to the point that he doesn't know "how he sounds." He can be in a terrible mood and 5 minutes later say he never remembers sounding grouchy. He doesn't know that he sounds cold and unloving. Any advice, please?Thank you in advance :)

Several websites mention that anyone with a low platelet count should proceed with caution on their ozone therapy. I have low platelets. Now I wonder how low is low. How much care is needed - just watch for symptoms? I guess I need to check with...
