Spring of 1998, my car was hit by a 32 tonne bulk carrier farmers truck and this marked the beginning of my battle with Multiple Sclerosis. Initially I ignored it, disbelieving what doctors were telling me and avoiding the pharmaceuticals drugs completely. That is until the birth of my son, when I developed a severe intention tremor and struggled to even feed myself. At that point, I accepted the NHS offer of Beta Blockers (Propanolol) and an epilepsy medication (Primidone). Nothing truly helped and I haven’t been near a kitchen knife since. As predicted, the attacks grew, taking more and more abilities from me that I had always taken for granted.
In 2013, I heard through the social networking site Facebook, of the existence of Ldn and its unmatched opportunities to improve the course and impact of disease. Not only was I shocked that it existed, I couldn’t believe it was such a secret when it literally offered life. Being a political creature by education, I was initially struck with the huge success stories and it’s unavailability through the NHS. This is a safe and cheap drug that tackles over 170 auto-immune diseases, it is no cure but it does restore life and considering where science is with the whole auto-immune dilemma, there are millions who could and would be helped.
In a year taking 3mg of Low Dose Naltrexone, the attacks stopped but existing symptoms remained as troublesome as ever. I decided that not continuing to decline was enough to be grateful for but 2 weeks ago I cut Tobacco out and within days, I was walking again. It occurred to me that removing the toxin which may have been instrumental in the diseases development, could lead to some recovery too. These assumptions and I’m sure I’m not alone, are things that require research. To this end, I am committed.
