I have had MS for 10 years now. I take the beta seron shot every other day. Well I had a attack a few years back and the steroids did not help. Scared ....I decided to try from the vitamin store a jar honey that contains bee venom. It worked wonders for me i was completely healed within a week. I currently use 2 brands whichever is available at the time of my attack. 1. Actiflex Plus by Comvita....this one is harder to find www.comvita.com 2. Nectar Ease Distributed by henneybee thareapy 1-866-289-9233. I really believe they worked for me!

I have had success using Bee Venom Therapy for various ailments including: herniated disk, muscle strains in the lower back and shoulders, and it removed a wart that I had for over 5 years on my foot. I have witnessed many MS patients make drastic improvements with Bee Venom Therapy to the point that they got off of the drugs that only made them feel worse.

Many people use BVT for arthritis, carpal tunnel, low back issues, etc... (even Cancer).

Mother Nature has provided the solutions for our health issues.


Hydrogen Peroxide

Posted by Orshi (Exeter, Devon, England) on 01/21/2012

Hi all! I was diagnosed with MS 14 months ago, I had a rubbish year, needed steroid every 3-4 month, havent been able to work as I constatly have problem with fatigue, pins and needles and pretty bad numbness in my feet, bladder dysfunction, constipation, weakness and balance trouble, difficulty with walking, blurry sight with one eye and lots of other symptoms.

Steroid works but every time I get some, by the time I start to get back to normal, the problems slowly come back and I'm going down within two month again. It's very depressing. Now, I'm trying to be positive but right now I can't even walk again for ten minutes without sitting down for a rest. When I was diagnosed I was also told that I have EBV and they couldn't really tell 100% that my symptoms are caused by ms or EBV but most likely ms I guess.

I have been reading about Hydrogen Peroxide therapy for about two weeks and it gave me so much hope that I decided to try it. I am on 14 drops today now, climbing up to 25 and then do the whole protocol as it's in the books... I was wondering if anyone with the same problems has tried HP therapy? Please would you share your experiences with me, and maybe give me a little hope that I will get better one day. I am only 30 but I feel like my life stopped a year ago:-( I know I can't expect anything in a couple of weeks but I believe in this now so much that I tell myself every single day that this stuff will help me and I'm willing to do, even be patient for six months for results as long as I can walk, and after if I get better I am going to drink or inhale hp for the rest of my life.

Please give some good news here dear everyone or Ted! This site is great by the way!

I wish you all good health, and I'm looking forward to some answers. Also here's my email if anyone would share their experience with hp therapy in private orsika(at)hotmail.co.uk

Thank you!

I have some good news for you. Please look at this website, www.ldninfo.org. LDN is an inexpensive, FDA approved drug, which when taken in a very small dose can help with many autoimmune diseases, and is usually very effective in stopping progression of MS. Additionally, please join the Yahoo LDN group that has over 10,000 members, at least half of whom have MS. They will help you very willingly and with much understanding and experience. You are not alone and help is as close as your computer. Best wishes!

Dr. Terry Wahls learned how to properly fuel her body. Using the lessons she learned at the subcellular level, she used diet to cure her MS and get out of her wheelchair.

Hi Orshi, I have MS too, I have found oxygen therapy helpful. Hydrogen peroxide, and also Homozon. I did CCSVI treatment several times but while there were benefits they only last 6 months for me. I had it again and veins were open but symptoms came back. After lots of supplements, and continued progression, I tried stem cell therapy which stopped the progression and with exercise seems to be helping me get better. Went from wheelchair to walker outside the house. It's been 2 months.

Hi,

Just found this site and have been reading all the interesting posts.

My yoga instructor was telling us about Hydrogen Peroxide food grade and how it might be beneficial for people with MS, which I have had for 6/7 years now. Not sure if I can get LDN in Canada but will look into it.

Orshi, if you are still looking at this post every now and then, just wondering how you made out and if you have tried the LDN ??

I am 50 and also have extreme numbness in both legs/feet as well as bladder/bowel/eye problems as well as others.

Anyone in Canada purchasing the LDN? Thanks for any info. Best to everyone, Pete

Pete, re your MS;

Also look into a substance that Dr Robert Adkins used as his number one go to for his MS patients that he would give to them in IV form, although the oral consumption I have seen is amazingly effective for the symptoms you describe; "Calcium AEP" and the "calcium" part is not the issue...it is the AEP part that is the miracle. You can google "Nutrition Review Calcium AEP" and find an amazing article on the 20 different things AEP can do to help the human body, To deal with leg symptoms, especially when stressed, up to eight tablets of AEP are needed.

Also, I have found Colloidal Silver to be effective in killing viral infections. It is theorized that MS has as a trigger a virus.

Increase the 35% food grade hydrogen perxoide from 6 drops once a day to 8 then 10; 12; 14; 18; 20 drops at least 3(three)times a day then level off at around 8 to 12 drops twice a day after a couple of weeks. This increase from once to three times a day will continue to over oxignate your body and keep any fungi or paracite dead or dormant since these parasites can't live in an over oxignated body.

Scott from Texas is correct. H202 Hydrogen peroxide food grade is only oxygen, increased intake is absolutely harmless. (withing reason) I have done up to 15 drops at once 3 times a day ( always diluted in water). It also cleans out the bad bacteria in your digestive tract, which most practitioners agree is 80% of your immune system.

Inclined Bed Therapy

Posted by Stephanie (San Francisco, Ca) on 11/03/2013

MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Remedies Needed

Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT)

I would like to suggest people with MS look into Inclined Bed Therapy, which by definition, is the process of sleeping on a bed that is inclined by 4 to 6" at the head of the bed so that the entire body is sleeping on an angle(not just the head, or top half of the body, like with a pillow). The easiest way to do this is to put risers(square, plastic or wood blocks) under the two posts at the head of the bed.

Inclined Bed Therapy takes the pressure off the spine, allowing circulation into the brain stem, allowing new stem cells to develop. People with MS that have practiced IBT nightly for several months report MS symptoms going into remission. There are several websites dedicated to Inclined Bed Therapy and several testimonials, even one man that claims he can walk again due to IBT after only 6 months.

Some of the other reported benefits of IBT include sleeping better through the night, reduced back pain, reduced snoring, reduced sleep apnea and reduced acid reflux, reduced need to urinate in the middle of the night(due to gravity separating the heavy particles from the water particles forcing more water elimination through the lungs as oppose to the bladder). For testimonials regarding many other benefits to sleeping this way, refer to IBT listed here on earthclinic and other websites online, or refer to Andrew K. Fletcher, he is the original person trying to help get the word out. He claims that even the Egyptians, who were brilliant, knew to sleep this way!

If you do have MS, and decide to give IBT a try, please talk to your doctor first and report back your experience here to help others.


Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)

My wife was diagnosed with MS seven years ago. The Neurologist started treatment with Rebiff and ocasionally she had to go to hospital to receive a cortisone drip. She had constant headaces, fever and spasms after the injection. She was only allowed to use Panado as a pain killer. (Sometimes up to 8 every day) As time progressed and relapses ocurred the spasms headaces and body pains worsened to such an extent that she could barely walk. Speech and bladder controll was also severely affected. She was introduced to LDN little more than a year ago. We started with a daily dose of 2mg after 9 pm, and she is now on 4. 5mg per day. She has no more headaches, never had a spasm again and can walk short distances without any aid. Her speech and bladder controll also improved. Although the MS caused a lot of damage the LDN improved her quality of life to a great extent. Pity we did not know about LDN sooner

My husband (aged 46) was diagnosed with MS about four years ago. Instead of starting the toxic and very expensive traditional MS meds, we decided to get Googling and found LDN. He has an MRI once a year and for the past three and a half years his disease has not progressed. Many of his lesions have gone or are inactive. No new symptoms and no increased disability. He has been taking 4.5mg of LDN for the whole three and a half years so it doesnt take a rocket scientist to realise it`s the LDN keeping him healthy. I urge anyone with an autoimmune disease to investigate and try LDN. Cheap, safe and no nasty side effects. He`ll never take anything else! As a bonus, he has not had a single cold or sniffle the whole time!

Low Dose Naltrexone is being used by people with MS (and other conditions) to stop the progress of the disease. Regrettably it does not seem to work for absolutely everyone and does not give much if any improvement with existing symptoms. It does however give one a chance to try other possible solutions knowing you will not get worse as time goes on.

LDN works and has been the most effective drug I have ever taken for my MS, my MRI from 2002 had 11 lesions and my MRI from last month after being on LDN for 8 months had zero (0) lesions on the brain. email me for an article I wrote on LDN. email:[email protected] and paulnicholasonline.com

Where can I buy LDN, or a doctor must prescribe it?

Replied by Rsw

Hi Hristanad,

LDN is an inexpensive prescription drug in the US. It is gaining recognition among doctors and many will prescribe it. If, however, you can't get a prescription, you can buy it overseas, online. There are also several doctors in the US who will prescribe after a phone consultation. You can buy 50mg pills that can be diluted with 50ml of distilled water to make your own solution, where 1ml of solution equals 1mg of LDN. Measure the dose with a $1,5ml dropper, available at any drug store. Very easy to do. It will keep in your refrigerator for up to 90 days. The new updated, comprehensive book, "The LDN Book" by Linda Elsegood is available on Amazon. If you join the LDN Yahoo Group and ask how to get some, the members will give you details about where you can buy it. I'm not sure that I can post it here. If you look on the www.ldninfo.org site, it will give you a list of reliable compounders in the US to use if you get a prescription and the Yahoo LDN Group address. My doctor told me LDN would be very helpful for my autoimmune problems, and to try to get some because she wouldn't prescribe it off-label. I buy mine overseas for the past six years and have never had any problems, and about half of the 12,000 members also buy their own. I think you can google "buy LDN" and you will see some sights, but most buy from the one run by Ian, who also takes it himself and donates to the LDN community. It does not come from China. If you have any further questions, please join the Yahoo Group that is listed on the LDN site listed in this post, and you will be welcomed and your questions will be thoughtfully answered. By the way, for the Crohn's people here, there are several posts right now from experiences of member users, about the current research and Dudley(the moderator) has posted links to first-hand accounts from other Crohn's users, and many links to research and helpful information. LDN is completely non-toxic, taken by mouth, with no side effects except possible short lived sleep problems, and that can be remedied by taking it in the morning. It is helpful with many autoimmune diseases, including Crohn's, IBS, Hashimotos, RA, (many others listed on the LDN site)by modulating the immune system, not killing it, is extremely helpful for MS, and mitigates the damage to healthy cells in cancer treatment. Some have successfully used it with other supplements and/or allopathic or holistic treatments for cancer. Best wishes! You have nothing to lose and much to gain.

Dudley's page can be found about half way down this page that displays. There are also other LDN sites listed.

The one caveat I didn't mention on my current post that is important, is that LDN can be taken with ANY other drug, including steroids during flares, if necessary, but CANNOT BE TAKEN with OPIATE based drugs. They both compete for the same receptors and LDN will always win, which could throw an opiate user into an unexpected and potentially dangerous withdrawal. LDN will block the effect of an opiate. If surgery is anticipated where opiates will be used afterwards for pain, LDN should be discontinued a few days before the surgery or another kind of pain reliever needs to be used for a few days.

I find LDN therapy for MS interesting. I have been on 2 mga twice a day everyday as it's in combination with my pain med. I actually notice more pain within 45 mins of taking it. I was diagnosed at 16 and I am now 32 so being so young and independent I sought out less acceptable ways of dealing with effects of MS. (i.e.) cocaine, which actually worked, I had no symptoms, amongst other dumb street drugs that numbed the depression and helped me block what was going on with my body.

Long story short when I wised up I found that the crap the docs gave me was making me worse so I sought out natural alternatives and I have felt much better without the injections and percocet and zoloft etc. I happened upon this H2O2 therapy and am going to try it along with all my supplements. The biggest thing through it all that I want to try and eliminate is the pain I experience so hopefully this helps and I can get rid of pain meds even with LDN altogether

Hi Heather,

I have been taking LDN for more than six years for autoimmune problems. When you take the LDN, it will block your opiates and opiate receptors for four to six hours, which may be why you experience an increase in pain after taking it. It is during the next 18 a 20 hours that LDN will make your body think it is in short supply of these, and it will make more of both. This is usually where the healing is found, especially with MS. If you take LDN more than once in any 24 hours, the blockade will begin again and interrupt the healing time. May I suggest you try taking 3 mg. LDN once a day, and see how it goes? You could then experiment with 4.5 mg. once a day, but if you experience any muscle cramping at 4.5 mg, which sometimes happens at this dose with MS, then go back to 3 mg once a day. I hope you have joined the Yahoo LDN Group with over 13,000 members who take LDN, about half for MS. They can give you their personal experiences and guide you with what has worked out best. Wishing you relief from your pain soon. Best wishes!

O! For This Reason.
02/17/2017

Hi Heather,

I forgot to mention that if you are taking opiate based pain medicine, the LDN will block it, which also may be why you feel more pain after taking the LDN. This has the potential of throwing a person who is dependent on the opiate pain meds into a dangerous withdrawal. The ONLY thing that LDN should NOT be taken with is opiate based drugs, for this reason. Some people take pain medicine (Tremadol - sp?)in the morning, and LDN at night, 12 hours apart, and this seems to work for them. I would join the LDN Yahoo Group to get specific information about this from people who use it this way. LDN seems to work better for people with MS when they take it at night, between 10PM and 2AM.

When taking LDN, you work up from a dosage of 2 mg to 4.5 mg. If you feel dizzy, nauseous, or get headaches at 4.5mg, try taking your dosage back down to 3 or 3.5mg. You've arrived at your correct dosage when you feel good again. Very small people or those with poor liver function can't handle 4.5mg. Many people do well on 3mg.

Replied by Rsw

08/06/2018

3mg. of LDN is often recommended for those with MS due to spasticity problems in some at 4.5 mg. If muscle cramping or spasms occurs at 4.5mg/day, reduce your dose to 3mg/day and see if you feel better. You will still reap the benefits of LDN.


M.S Commentary

I have a sister that has progressive M.S. and the struggle I have with her is she seems to think only the Doctors know what is best to treat M.S. and like one lady wrote in on back in 2006 as to why the cures or remedys are not being broadcast to the world. The answer is that there is know profit in the cure or remedy because they are natural and not man made and therefore know huge profits can be gained. Imagine how much money they would loose for M.S. research or any other major ailment research if it got out that there are simpler inexpensive cures for for major ailments or diseases. The pharmesudical industry is making billions and would stand to loose the same. So why would they want this information pertaining to a cure or remedy broadcast. THINK ABOUT IT.

Low dose naltrexone is 89% effective in stopping MS progression. It is inexpensive, an FDA approved drug, has no side effects except possibly vivid dreams for a week or two, and is taken by pill or liquid. See www.ldninfo.org.

Another all natural product that has been excellent in several MS people I have talked with or heard of, is a Lion's Mane mushroom product made by Mat--x Mushroom. The person I talked with had been taking Avonex for 13 years, had loss of feeling in the legs, began taking the mushroom product and can now ride her horse since she now can once again feel her legs. Her other symptoms are also gone. A man in CA was in a wheelchair, took the mushroom product and now can swim, walk, and works 14 hour days for the mushroom company. He was so happy with the product that he asked for a job and got it. They are now making a product especially for MS people, that contains Lion's Mane, Reishi and Cordyceps. (I have no financial or other interest in this company) Best wishes!

Let me start by saying that I do not have MS. In fact, it has been through my own search for a nutritional prevention for Macular Degeneration that I have become familiar with the work of Dr. Terry Wahls, a member of the faculty of University of Iowa Medical School. It was through her newsletter that I began to learn thorough explainations on how nutrition can protect us from chronic disease. Her newsletter led me to look into Oil-Pulling, which led me to this website. Dr. Wahls is a practicing physician who spent four years in a tilt/recline wheelchair before reversing her own MS through a protocol of nutrition and electrotherapy. She is currently conducting a clinical trial of her method. Like I said, I don't have MS, but I don't want anyone else to have it either.

Living near a Mennonite community, one can't help but see how easily the healthy diet comes to these people. Yes, we all have choices, BUT most of us have limited ones in the context of our modern lifestyle/environment. Solitary, disabled, limited budget folks like me don't have many choices. My best option is eat as healthy as possible AND supplement. I will pose this option/combination ---diet and supplementation as superior to the (either) (or) "choice".

Several yrs gone my dad had finally reached the age of retirement but his health was in steady decline. Fatigue, short term memory loss (forgetfulness), overweight, malice, irritability, depression, etc. Then comes debilitating arthritis. Dad agreed to my recommendation to a good wholefood multivitamin/mineral ---2 daily. 2 mo later and after being out-of-town for 2 wks Dad returns and walks into the hospital room where I was bedridden and I didn't even recognize him until probably 10 sec. later. The results was astounding ---lost 20 lbs, color returned to eyes & skin, mentally sharp w/ no more depression; this was from only 2 multi's day.

If one can eat a very healthy organic (paleo) diet there are yet limitations as far as quantity of nutrients goes, so I would suggest supplementing w/ advanced nutrition (for the topic of mitochondria) like CoQ10, NADH, Alpha Lipoic Acid, d-Ribose, Quercetin.

Of course clean air & water is a must as is exercise to keep the "fire" of the mitochondria burning (cellular respiration yielding high energy Adenine Triphosphate ATP).


Selenium

Hi, Se helps the thyroid which slows down due to celiac. Faster working thyroid helps increase oxygen to the brain cells. Brain cells need more oxygen than other cells. Heavy metals block the thyroid medicine from being used and may block how the hemoglobin works. I was full of heavy metals. Colloidal siver poisoned me. It was the worst hell. I don't recommend anyone take colloidal silver. They may build it up like I did.

Regarding Earth Clinic's query about "Se" in someone's post. It stands for Selenium which is extremely helpful for those who have problems with their thyroid. By the way, I love this site and check it regularly. I've learned so much. Thank you!

Silver is not a "heavy metal" wendy!!! Its up there with calcium and copper and "correctly made colloidal silver" does not and can not build up in the tissues, argyria which is caused from adding salt etc to silver making process and which causes this silver skin is reversible anyway and harmless. Your high level of sheavy metels were caused by other things such as diet, lifestyle, bad water and amalgum fillings etc. EDTA, cilantro and antioxidants can remove your heavy metals.

One theory concerning MS is that it is virus based. But it is more complicated than most viruses because complicating the onset and progression is an underlying heavy metal in the system. Typically this is mercury.

I have had a lot of family history with MS. When my wife was stricken I used what I'd learned over the years. An MRI demonstrated two lesion in her dorsal vertabra. Hence, she suddenly could barely walk.

Well I knew the road ahead using the conventional treatment so quickly moved to get the mercury out of her system. She did have highly elevated mercury. Only four months earlier she had dental work using mercury amalgams. We killed the virus using colloidal silver drinking three tablespoons daily. She had the fillings removed and chelation to get the mercury removed. Ala Dr Robert Adkins book "Vita Nutrients" who used Calcium AEP in IV form for his MS patients, we added three capsules of that to her vitamin routine. Finally, we got on line "sphengoline" which is a myelin substance and can repair the lesions.

In only two months there were no more symptoms. She keeps her Cal AEP close by in case she can feel a coming "flare up. " That was fifteen years ago.

I have seen this formula work with at least ten MS patients with amazing results.

My name is Jessica and I was diagnosed with relapsing/remitting MS roughly 4 years ago. I was told that it was most likely the culprit of some issues I had been experiencing for over 15 years. I am going to be 35 this year in October and truly outside of childhood have never felt better. I have had on and off again numbness along nerve paths throughout my body and on my face. I have had phantom "tingles" and "bugs crawling", chronic fatigue, weak bladder control, nystagmis, optic neuritis (I do a really great impression of Marty Feldman every once in a while), restless leg syndrome, a horrible case of shingles in my 20s, and run at a usual temperature of at least 99 which in Arizona leads to heat exhaustion quickly.

I had tried both Rebif and Copaxone and was miserable with not only dealing with the sore site injections and immediate discomfort throughout my body but crappy side effects... I was not me anymore. I also developed a bad case of depression as a side effect and had to be put on more medication. Got to love the drug companies.

I started looking in to things on my own and found that taking a few more supplemental vitamins and adding in other extracts and such while subtracting things like meat, bad sugars, and dairy I could be me again and live virtually symptom free. Stress is not always something easily avoided but it really is my only set off anymore for the disease. I can tell when an exacerbation will most likely rear its ugly head and usually stave it off with relaxation and meditation. Here are a list of my daily vitamins and supplements in case anyone out there is interested in researching and trying a few or all of the suggestions for themselves.

Once a Day:
Alpha Lipoic Acid 100mg
Acidophilus 10mg
Chelated Manganese 5mg
Black Currant Oil 535mg
Chelated Zinc 50mg
Vitamin D3 2000mg

Twice a Day:
Pycnogenol 60mg
Ginko Biloba 60mg
Transfer Factor 600mg
St. John's Wart 300mg

Three Times a Day:
Co Q-10 30mg
Vinpocetine 10mg
Soy Lecithin 520mg
Omega-3 Fish Oil 1000mg
Spirulina 1000mg
Pure Vitamin C Crystals 5000mg per teaspoon (1/2 tsp. ) dissolved in water to take vitamins each time.

I have a smoothie that I make most mornings with frozen fruit, fresh blueberries, protein, and coconut water that I add a tablespoon of extra virgin raw coconut oil to along with a tablespoon of turmeric. I also do a small concoction of 4.5g or 2 rounded teaspoons of magnesium citrate (raspberry-lemon flavored CALM) mixed with 2oz of apple cider vinegar and water.

This may seem a to be a lot to do... But man I tell you what... I am active, awake, and in a good mood about 90 percent of the time. This disease does not run my life and the regimen is small stuff in the grand scheme. A little bit of exercise goes a long way. I walk, hike, swim and dance my booty off because I want to these days and I feel great not to mention dropped weight.

In case anyone reads this... It was 1 teaspoon of the Turmeric. Eeek!

For the "Partial Leg Paralysis" or "Arm Paralysis" claim, I have to admit that I found myself somewhat skeptical about the "Edgar Cayce Electricity claim". However, it appears that one electrical device has now been clinically verified to "repair this symptom". This device was recently showcased on the Doctors TV show.

There is a fungalbionics book which seems to implicate the Aspergillus fungus as a possible cause of MS (Ergot poisoning). It seems to say MS is responsive to Nystatin, a non-absorbed antifungal medication. Note: Many nystatin medications are mixed with sucrose(sugar), and so this may reduce effectiveness. I suspect that the SSKI remedy would be beneficial to many ms patients, but I have no experience dealing with the matter, so defer to Ted on the matter.
