70% of MS patients regain functioning with extreme treatment–but you might die

Rebooting the immune system

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.

Adverse Childhood Experiences Shorten Life

adverse-childhood-experiences-pyramid-lg
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

The most recent review of “Multiple Sclerosis Mission Remission: Healing MS Against All Odds”

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.

Update on my MS

dreams-pouring-out-of-sleeping-head.jpg
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.

Does Vitamin D help dementia?

Post 18: Vitamjn D may help your thinking

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/

Resilience is needed to cope with chronic illness

20180827_173303
My wife, Deborah Brogan, MD, was a board certified psychiatrist. We were married when she was 28 years old. She was not expected to live beyond the age of 40. She lived to be 61 years old and did private practice until she was 58 years old. She also worked at Arizona State University on their eating disorders team for 22 years after we were married. Prior to all of this, she worked at Albany County mental health clinic in albany, New York for 3 years. Prior to this, she spent seven years with medical school and a psychiatric residency.

She had severe juvenile diabetes since she was 12 years old. In 1998, 19 years before death in 2017, she had a kidney-pancreas transplant which was necessary because of the diabetes. She was hospitalized about 30 times, and continued working in between hospitalizations.

She was fond of the above “Elements of Resilience” and incorporated it into psychotherapy with her patients in private practice. It is good guidance in what to strive for to meet the challenges of life. It is a good summary of what helps me to cope with multiple sclerosis. It is the spirit I try to convey in my book, “Multiple Sclerosis Mission Remission: Healing MS Against All Odds” at

Stem Cell treatment for multiple sclerosis

science
MS Post 12: We have come a long way, baby!

Stem cell treatments for multiple sclerosis is one of the newer success stories. See https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/28621766/

Findings are that autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation will completely suppress MS disease activity for four or five years in seventy to eighty percent of people completing the procedure. That’s the good news.

The less fortunate news is that it works best on young ambulatory MS patients who have inflammatory activity going on in their brains, i.e. the multiple sclerosis is more active. So that probably rules me out.

Prior to 2005, there was a 3.6 percent mortality associated with this complex procedure. After 2005, the mortality was greatly reduced to only 0.3 percent.

I am older and very ambulatory with no inflammatory lesions or disease activity going on in my brain so I am probably not the best candidate for what sounds like an arduous procedure. I have achieved total remission with the help of a combination of different medical drugs with many healthy, alternative, and spiritual practices described in my book at
