My first symptoms were parathesia at Would anyone involved in the Harvard MS study want to contact me? My MS has effected my mobility but not my cognition.
I have been told frequenty that I have an incredible memory so I can discuss these injuries vividly. As far as infection look toward streptococcus. Concussions in an early age can be a very strong area to check into, whereas at a young age they are more likely to have gone untreated and or unnoticed. Thanks for posting Donna. Do you have reference sources for more research on Streptococcus. I have strongly suspected this as my amazing Sister had a very resistant form of Strep in high school, at which time, one of my Amazing Brothers was killed by a Drunk driver.
This was very hard on her emotionally as they were close in age and had some of the same friends.
She was treated with massive doses of antibiotics. Fast forward, after the birth of her second daughter, she was diagnosed with MS. She is in a nursing home with secondary progressive MS and has stage 4 Breast Cancer which is only being treated with estrogen blocking medicine. I think the antibiotics mutated the bodies ability to give the correct autoimmune response thus attacking itself in the form of MS, Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, etc… I know this from experience.
After over 10 years of being treated with antibiotics for sinus infections, bronchial infections and numerous secondary infections, I developed Lupus SLE and positive Rheumatoid Arthristis after the birth of my second child. The reference range should be below My Son developed Thrush on his tounge from my Breast milk. It took me a year and a half to detox and stop all antibiotics and making major nutritional and lifestyle changes to be completely clear of both Lupus and RA.
We found a doctor that agreed to do a fecal transplant and I believe it saved her life. Not only that but it appears that her MS Progression has stopped. She is in good Spirits and speaks more clearly than ever. A lot of diseases are from a compromised gut. I seriously dought it would be their financial best interest to find a cure for MS Or any other disease when the medical university studies are determined and funded by the pharmaceutical industry. The compromised gut releases proteins into the bloodstream, causing incorrect autoimmune response to attack the incorrectly perceived Antigen.
If the proteins attach to the joints, the auto immune response attacks the joints causing Rheumatoid Arthritis. If the Proteins attach to the nerves, the autoimmune response is to attack the nerves. This may be oversimplified in medical standards and I might not have the writing elegance of a professional medical jounalist but I do have enough care and compassion for anybody affected by MS to voice my humble opinion. I would challenge any medical university and pharmaceutical company to research and develop a way fix the cause and not treat the symptom.
That is how I fixed my body. By treating with a fecal transplant or restorative fecal medicine after antibiotics it may be possible to prevent permanent damage. I would be the first to support and help fund this research because nobody is more full of Feces than me! The FDA has made it illegal to perform this anymore. Because it cannot be patented?
It is not like blood type incompatibility. It is compatible with everybody. This is my own opinion and not the opinion of the editors, Harvard University, and have not been checked for accuracy. Health insurance. Money Deals. The Independent Books.

Researchers in the US claim to have overcome one of the major hurdles to cultivating human follicles from stem cells. The new system allows cells to grow in a structured tuft and emerge from the skin. A study in the journal Scientific Reports suggests that a dose of nature of just two hours a week is associated with better health and psychological wellbeing. Exposure to air from traffic-clogged streets could leave women with fewer years to have children, a study has found.
Italian researchers found women living in the most polluted areas were three times more likely to show signs they were running low on eggs than those who lived in cleaner surroundings, potentially triggering an earlier menopause. Junk food adverts on TV and online could be banned before 9pm as part of Government plans to fight the "epidemic" of childhood obesity.
Plans for the new watershed have been put out for public consultation in a bid to combat the growing crisis, the Department of Health and Social Care DHSC said. On migrating from Africa around 70, years ago, humans bumped into the neanderthals of Eurasia. While humans were weak to the diseases of the new lands, breeding with the resident neanderthals made for a better equipped immune system. The breath biopsy device is designed to detect cancer hallmarks in molecules exhaled by patients. By their 10th birthdy, children have on average already eaten more sugar than the recommended amount for an 18 year old.
The average 10 year old consumes the equivalent to 13 sugar cubes a day, 8 more than is recommended. While there is not enough evidence of harm to recommend UK-wide limits on screen use, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health have advised that children should avoid screens for an hour before bed time to avoid disrupting their sleep. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine has found that many elderly people are taking daily aspirin to little or no avail.
A study by the University of Minnesota's Masonic Cancer Centre has found that the carcinogenic chemicals formaldehyde, acrolein, and methylglyoxal are present in the saliva of E-cigarette users. Obesity is a leading cause. The majority of antidepressants are ineffective and may be unsafe, for children and teenager with major depression, experts have warned. In what is the most comprehensive comparison of 14 commonly prescribed antidepressant drugs to date, researchers found that only one brand was more effective at relieving symptoms of depression than a placebo.
Another popular drug, venlafaxine, was shown increase the risk users engaging in suicidal thoughts and attempts at suicide. Researchers at the Baptist Health South Florida Clinic in Miami focused on seven areas of controllable heart health and found these minority groups were particularly likely to be smokers and to have poorly controlled blood sugar.
A major pressure group has issued a fresh warning about perilously high amounts of sugar in breakfast cereals, specifically those designed for children, and has said that levels have barely been cut at all in the last two and a half decades. New guidance by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence NICE , the body which determines what treatment the NHS should fund, said lax road repairs and car-dominated streets were contributing to the obesity epidemic by preventing members of the public from keeping active.
A new class of treatments for women going through the menopause is able to reduce numbers of debilitating hot flushes by as much as three quarters in a matter of days, a trial has found. Melissa Whiteley, an year-old engineering student from Hanford in Stoke-on-Trent, fell ill at Christmas and died in hospital a month later. The Government has pledged to review tens of thousands of cases where women have been given harmful vaginal mesh implants.
Human trials have begun with a new cancer therapy that can prime the immune system to eradicate tumours. The treatment, that works similarly to a vaccine, is a combination of two existing drugs, of which tiny amounts are injected into the solid bulk of a tumour. Mothers living within a kilometre of a fracking site were 25 per cent more likely to have a child born at low birth weight, which increase their chances of asthma, ADHD and other issues. Thousands of cervical cancer screening results are under review after failings at a laboratory meant some women were incorrectly given the all-clear.
Most breast cancer patients do not die from their initial tumour, but from secondary malignant growths metastases , where cancer cells are able to enter the blood and survive to invade new sites.
Asparagine, a molecule named after asparagus where it was first identified in high quantities, has now been shown to be an essential ingredient for tumour cells to gain these migratory properties. A record number of nursing and midwifery positions are currently being advertised by the NHS, with more than 34, positions currently vacant, according to the latest data.
Demand for nurses was 19 per cent higher between July and September than the same period two years ago.
CBD has a broadly opposite effect to deltatetrahydrocannabinol THC , the main active component in cannabis and the substance that causes paranoia and anxiety. The numbers of people accepted to study nursing in England fell 3 per cent in , while the numbers accepted in Wales and Scotland, where the bursaries were kept, increased 8. The paper found that there were 45, more deaths in the first four years of Tory-led efficiencies than would have been expected if funding had stayed at pre-election levels. On this trajectory that could rise to nearly , excess deaths by the end of , even with the extra funding that has been earmarked for public sector services this year.
Hours of commuting may be mind-numbingly dull, but new research shows that it might also be having an adverse effect on both your health and performance at work.
