There is an outstanding documentary on Netflix called “Game Changers” that convincingly persuades that the best food is plant based. See https://gamechangersmovie.com/
Sleep was an important part of my recovery from MS described in my book at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D7JBZ5L/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_awdo_t1_.pDiBbVDAK0S4
Mayzent is taken orally. It has been shown to slow the progression of disability progression in MS in people who are starting down the road of secondary progressive MS. This article gives the information. I still think that Ocrevus might be best although I know of no direct comparisons. I would like to see comparative studies or meta reviews of the efficacy of Ocrevus compared to Mayzent and other MS drugs. See
In ancient Greece, there were temples of healing that use dreams and dreams incubation for thousands of years to heal physical illness. I think I stumbled into using some of their methods, notably dream incubation. See
Present within most of these sleep temples were elaborate systems of fasting, dedication, lustration, purification, ritual drama, sensory deprivation or over-stimulation, invocation and dream interpretation. These institutions prevailed for thousands of years, so clearly the sleep temple methods were fruitful for many (there are countless testimonies and votive offerings proclaiming successful treatment) but how did they work? Would these old methods of dream incubation work today?
The practice of ‘Temple Sleep’ is well-evidenced in ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman archaeology and literature. I believe the practice of ‘dream incubation’ reveals many secrets regarding the journey of human consciousness, the evolution of memory and language, the mind-body connection, the placebo effect and the unconscious mind’s potent response to imagination, story and symbolism.”
The dream incubation I used in my healing is at:
I attended a seminar by Jungian analyst Jean Shinoda Bolen MD about twenty years ago. I wrote her a letter asking about how to cope with the multiple sclerosis I had at the time. She responded with a hand written two page letter.
The Dali Lama at one point chose her as one of twenty psychiatrists and psychologists to attend a tour. A main value of Buddhists is compassion. It is easy to see why he chose her.
Her Goddesses in Every Woman and Gods in Every Man books helped me learn to interpret dreams. She has written many books. As a psychiatrist, she used to do group therapy with people who had cancer (the book is Close to the Bone). I hope to be more like her someday.
I recently had surgery on my eyes for double vision which I trace back to probably being caused by MS. Visual symptoms were the first thing I noticed in my late twenties which I think was a precursor to being diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis at age 36.
Right after the surgery, the double vision changed. Over the course of three weeks, it merged into unitary singular vision. They do not operate on the eyes themselves. They operate on the small muscles controlling those movements. They ” tighten the cables” leading to your eyes if you will. Anyway, you are put under anesthesia and released the same day so it is outpatient surgery.
I have excessive skin on my eyelids which I think contributed to the double vision (if you put pressure on the outside of your eye with a finger, it distorts your vision which is a similar effect). Surgery can remove the excessive skin safely, so I think I will do it. Anyway, for 2019, “the eyes (ayes) have it.”

“Multiple Sclerosis MISSION REMISSION” by Dr. Fox was both a pleasure and an eye opener to the many aspects of how MS develops and can be managed. The deep insights he provides into his personal and family dynamics are powerful indicators of how dis-ease can be instilled and manifest later in various ways, from psychological to physical trauma. His ingenuity, spiritual insights and dogged determination to regain his life from the debilitating toll of MS is both inspirational and instructive. A very good read from many perspectives! -Dale Miesen, BA, Psycholgy & Philosophy”
A radical new treatment for multiple sclerosis is on the way. Researchers noticed that a leukemia treatment that works also practically cured MS patients who had both leukemia and multiple sclerosis.
Seventeen of the sample of 24, which is 70% of the people who used this treatment, had marked improvement in their MS symptoms (such as being able to return to work). One of the 24 MS patients died.
First bone marrow cells are extracted from the patient. Then all the immune cells in the patient are killed with toxic chemotherapy. The bone marrow sample is then purged of cancerous cells. The final step is the bone marrow sample is injected back into the patient to reboot the immune system of the MS sufferer.
