Sleep is important to your body and brain

This Is What Happens When You Don't Get Enough Sleep (Infographic)
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 for active secondary progressive Multiple Sclerosis MS

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

Dream Incubation for Healing

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

“Dream Incubation

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.”

NONJUDGEMENTAL and COMPASSION are 90 percent of everything that is good

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.
