cracking the wellness code?

This post like many of the others on this site will look at alternative ways of avoiding or possibly lessening lingering unwellness. This applies whether you have a chronic condition or not: After we’ve tried adjusting what, when and how much we eat as well as what, when and how much we move (or be still) we can start to try and address other energy sapping intestinal hitchhikers. These are approaches I’m trying at the...

Oxygen: the stuff we breathe

This post (like most posts so far) will be about oxygen, the stuff we breathe daily (all being well) including links loosely connected to measuring and increasing oxygen in the body. I started taking high density oxygen therapy (breathing 100% O2 in a decompression chamber) three and a half years ago.

Extensive testing hasn’t worked in MSers favour so what sort of dark hell might be unleashed...

Improving Prognosis?

The image of ivy is from my back garden and illustrates one of the few things that truly thrive there. NIHCE have issued guidelines to address which treatments might be worth the NHS providing for MS patients. Aside from the disease activity going on in our brains we have similar symptoms to many other chronic conditions. Some of those symptoms are brought on by our bodies becoming increasingly inactive due to deterioration in our...

alternative healthcare

“Right now, they [mspatients] are not getting the kind of information we as [health care] providers would like them to get,” Wray said.” This is quoted from a Boston Globe article of the 11th September. ACTRIMS – ECTRIMS researchers were apparently concerned about the ‘perceptions’ of ms patients. I’d like to know where would doctors and MS researchers present at the conference rather patients get...
