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.”
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.
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.
There is now compelling evidence that adverse circumstances can significantly shorten a child’s life. Adverse events such as child physical, sexual, and emotional abuse make the child as an adult more susceptible to chronic illness. I stated this in my book, “Multiple Sclerosis Mission Remission: Healing MS Against All Odds.” It is nice to see supporting information at
Diagnosed @ 59, realized symptoms appeared earlier than 30s slowly progressing. My oldest sister of 6 yrs. also has MS. Like my sister MS exploded when 52. Unlike my sister it went unrecognized until I advanced to Secondary Progressive MS. I knew I was complicit in its manifestation. Learned on my own much of what Dr Fox’s book reveals which reinforces trust in my intuition. I am mesmerized by his healing! Reading this book renewed my determination. I DO have control & MS is my gateway. MS has unexpectedly & often, knocked me on my ass, both figuratively/literally. Now 63, this book is an inspiration. I’m deeply appreciative Dr Fox for sharing his life & healing. BTW, I’m Debbie, felt a bit of synchronicity in that his wonderful late wife’s name too, was Debby. Thank u Dr Fox.
I have had primary progressive multiple sclerosis for 28 years. Following a series of medical, alternative and spiritual interventions, the MS went into full remission 13 years ago. I work full time and have written two books. I excercise and can run if I have to.
I just received my third infusion of Ocrevus which you only need to do every six months.
My writing continues to be legible and I have had no significant side effects from the Ocrevus medication. Part of the reason I am writing this is to express my thanks to all the people and to the universe/God (they are one and the same in my mind) who helped create this miracle.
Whenever you talk to enlightened prople who are “awake,” it is virtually unanimous that gratitude is a very important part in continuing a creative and positive dance with the universe. When working on manifesting a change in your life, many suggest that expressing gratitude as if the miracle has already occurred is most effective.
In my world, it has been most effective to condition myself to at least allow for the possibility that the miracle could occur such as what follows: “I am willing to consider that I could allow myself to learn that the miracle could occur.”
For myself, I have found that allowing for the conceivable possibility that a miracle could occur is what has mainly helped me. For me, it is more believable and a lot less stressful than proclaiming that the virtually impossible has already happened. Regardless, it is important to maintain a positive attitude of gratitude so that the best possible outcome for all can be achieved.
Researchers have been surprised with how strong the correlation between low levels of vitamin D and dementia is. it is best to take vitamin D through fortified foods such as milk or pills to avoid cancer caused by the sun. It is unproven at this point whether vitamin D supplementation can reverse or slow dementia, so stay tuned. See https://www.alzheimers.net/8-27-14-vitamin-d-and-dementia/
