    Ozone Therapy

How much care is needed - just watch for symptoms? I guess I need to check with...

    Frustrated husband

    My wife was diagnosed with MS 28 yrs. ago. We've been married for 31 yrs this Sept. We/she have been extremely blessed due to the fact that she has only had 3 exacerbations since her diagnosis! About 4 yrs ago she had a severe relapse caused by a allergic reaction to an antibiotic. The result was nearly complete paralysis. She spent a month in the hospital then another 2 weeks in physical rehab....

It was traumatizing to go through. When someone you love goes through...

I fear it may have partially ossified (term I heard in reference to...
