Keeping up with misinformation...#MultipleSclerosis and Nutrition

Struggling to keep up with misinformation,
realizing that is part of the communications problems in the world.
Been hyper focusing on fracking,
I see the doublespeak, lawyer shenaniganzas, public officials opening some doors, closing others,
biased editors accepting ad money, shills for Canadian land robbers, the Lake-6th Great lake gets no voice. A sick movie, futility of the Good Fight.
A lot like MS, Multiple Sclerosis.
And no matter the outcome,
Fight we Must!

So I listen to the radio, and over and over the nutritional supplements are pushed.
Forget the pipeline a minute.
Back to the home battle front.
I couldn't stand the ads....over and over...I got furious but I am supposed to keep calm and not get stressed out.
I wrote the Loser nutrition supplement company balance of nature
No response
 (suspiciously similar to the un-natural gaz)

*****my notes in italics...
They aired claims by Lauren...who sounds a little demented
she said she took nutritional supplements for ms and became
meg: I have never been called stable or unstable...I have RRMS and take immunomodulation drugs-shots, not vitamins. This is according to present standards of neurological clinical practice.

She mentions
growing spots or did she say

meg: Spots do not necessarily correlate to clinical presentation or disease progression. Glowing spots with Gad dye show a breach in the blood-brain barrier. Current treatment would suggest pulse high dose steroids, for an exacerbation not vitamin pills. Exacerbations are assessed using comprehensive neuro exam, testing, evaluation of medications. Never been asked if I am taking my vitamins. 

meeting the doctor a year later, Lauren read the mri
meg: Reading the Mri is something I leave for my neurologist
I have so many spots and have to ignore them. Your brain has at least 90% more capacity than you use. Lauren is not helping anyone with her 10%.

mri nothing growing dark spots shrinking healing in remission my reality

meg: Lauren, I feel sorry for you. If you see this, ditch the vegetable pills, the snake oil, the crystals.
Go to a board certified MS specialist.

My Article about treatments for MS....Wheelchair Repellant. I don't take vitamins

When I did a search for Clinical trials for "balance of nature" claims that dietary supplements help ms....I found this article...meg
