    really amazing story. I feel quite inspired and you are validating what I’ve always thought about many aspects of modern medicine.

    Amazing & inspiring!
    I’ve been on this journey for about a year, even though few understand my motivation.
    They just think: Hey, it’s MS…do whatever your doctor says! NOT!
    A million thanks for the validation. I will be sharing your story!

    So, were you actually diagnosed with MS? It doesn’t seem probable that a physician would diagnose you with that without performing an MRI.

    very inspiring story! I am finding a parallel in my life with your issue of putting judgement on yourself, and this becoming a deeply rooted anger…I am curious how you might have resolved this or figured it out ?

    Hi Olivia,

    I know this is going to sound too simple…but truly I learned to just “let go”. The present and future are determined by you and how you react to situations. The past is gone, and the only things left are the lessons learned…the rest is up to you. Honestly, I did not like hearing this years ago, but today…it finally made sense. 🙂

    I have a new program (“Holistic Lifestyle Program”) that will be released in Feb…I think you may find it interesting…stay tuned!

    Hello Bob,

    Yes I was actually diagnosed with MS, and it was confirmed. In fact, my symptoms were very aggressive. Thanks for reading my story!

    […] Many of you already know that I was extremely ill just over tens years ago. My symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis were text book. I could barely walk, was dangerously thin (98 pounds), and suffered with electrical symptoms in my limbs and torso. Needless to say… it was awful! (see my story here: Crossroads in Life – A Journey Back to Health) […]

    Are there certain toxins in the brain that are causing M.S. ? Now we are being sprayed with chemtrails and have gmo foods, monsanto roundup herbicide. It seems like the more we try to stay healthy, they try to kill us even more. Talk about trying to remain emotionally un-angered (made up word) over that.
    I will never take a doctor who isn’t on the holistic track that seriously, for the most part. I have had a lifetime of bad experiences like yours of being treated like “It’s all in my head”. Decades of going to skin doctors to get the latest drug only to not get any relief in skin conditions and same for asthma. And to be told that i suffer “yuppie syndrome” etc.
    Then to get severely worse with life threatening respiratory problems to go to three emergency rooms in one week to be told that i’m fine. Well, i was not fine, i couldn’t breath and thought i was going to die. If i didn’t take matters into my own hands, which is hard when you are fighting death, i would not be here today b/c of the A-holes that think they know something in the medical field, but are first class graduates with a degree in ignorance.
    I had a nurse look at me like she wanted to kill me at St. Johns Hospital in Santa Monica, CA a hospital i will never set foot in and don’t recommend, where the doctor basically kicked me out of the room with me begging them and telling them i could not breath. A shot of some disgusting drug, which made my heart race and made me feel like death and i was sent home to die.
    I almost died but i found a holistic practitioner at the last moment, who did not have an M.D. but a PHD, but she saved my life with the far infrared sauna technology from MPS equipment. I sleep under the rainbow every night. And then is when i learned about chemtrails etc. and found out the government is secretly trying to kill off a large portion of the population. The doctors are just being taught death care and it’s all about selling prescriptions. They know nothing about human health.
    The cause of many of the illnesses are the fact that there are polymers and nanobots being sprayed in the air which take over the central nervous system and stop the message sending in the brain that can cause everything to get paralized, numb and stop breathing and being able to communicate etc. In addition, these nanobots are connected to satalite systems which the government is using as a central mind control system. As the years progress we will see people go more and more crazy and zombie like because of this. And diseases will skyrocket. So the diseases today are largely effected by these nanobots made of plastics like teflon, silicones, sylaxane etc. And they are hell on earth. It causes the head to feel light headed b/c the plastics get stuck in the skin around the neck and skull. And to detox it is hard. This was my issue. And what i’m dealing with now is a recurrence of this and the anger associated with the fact that our government is secretly doing something to make Hitler proud and the fact that Americans will not wakeup.

    I worked as a psychologist and am now a coach and registered holistic nutritionist. I healed my own depression and related symptoms by following The Mood Cure, by Julia Ross which is primarily using amino acids (nutritional supplements) to address anxiety and depression and related symptoms by supporting and healing neurotransmitters. I would love to see more articles like this and people talking about healthy alternatives to antidepressants. http://Www.moodcure.com for more information

    Hi Michelle
    I live in Suffolk in the UK.
    I read with interest your site and how you took control of your own health.
    I totally agree with you on taking control of your own body.
    I am looking to ‘heal myself’ form extreme osteoporosis, which the physicians wanted to intravenously use bishphosphates in me – I declined.
    Also my doctor has prescribed calcium carbonate 1000mg elemental calcium per day. Again, I have declined calcium carbonate, as basically it is just eating rocks with very little benefit for human bones.
    Could you let me know how calcium orotate (elemental value) you take and also how much 2-AEP calcium you take on a daily basis.
    I have also had breast cancer in 2012, which I had a local wide excision and radiotherapy ( now wish I had not gone down the radiotherapy route as I had a lot of problems, and even 4 years later still in breast pain). Anyway, matters aside, I am controlling my diet with a complete change around, hopefully to prevent any tumour re growth, and my diet is also good for my bones.
    Take care and keep up the good work.

    Love your site! I have MS and currently struggling with B12 deficiency and blood sugar issues. After educating myself I’m convinced I can correct a lot with proper vitamins and minerals. One thing I have seen for sure is that the medical community “cookie cutter” medicine attitude has zero interest in investigating holistic possibilities for better health!

    Hi Michelle,

    I’m sending this from Down-under (Adelaide, SA, to be specific), but came here from the States, after about 30 years in NYS & Mass. I’m a recently retired prof., and I might head back for the US in a year or so, but not sure (like it here).

    Very pleased to read of about your healing success. You’ve written:
    — Nonetheless, this helped to facilitate the detox process. I also started taking megadoses of probiotics. When the body is so toxic, which is the case in all “disease states”, you are most likely not absorbing any nutrients whether from food or by supplementation. By changing the pH of your system (from acidic to more alkaline), you can purge yourself from years of “caked-on” waste. Any detox program must start in the gut.

    As someone with a sincere interest in natural healing (have been for years), I do take this to heart, and believe it is 100% valid. However, I wonder about a few points:
    1) What is (or how do you define) “megadoses of probiotics”?
    2) What is your source for probiotics. I use kefir, but it is very expensive and hard to find around here. And I have some doubts about supplements (which are also quite expensive).
    3) For detox, could I please ask for your view on Apple Cider Vinegar (the good kind, with the mother, etc.).

    Many thanks, and best of health.

    Cheers,
    “Ehr-jon”

    Hi there, love how you took control of you life and got it back.
    I too suffer from MS. I’ve had it for 30 years and for the last 3 years I’ve been using a walker to get around.
    My question is what did your diet consists of? What vitamins did you take to fight this decease?
    I have restless legs at night, they tell me it’s from MS, will this diet also help me with this?
    I will appreciate all the advise you can give me in beating this horrible decease.

    Thank you!

    I was recently diagnosed with this crappy disease. I am interested in feeling better without a ” new-ish” drug, and all of its exciting side effects! My neurologist, whom I immediately liked and respected, is waiting for me to give him the green light, with some blood work (blech!).
    I inquired about what I’d learned of B12. I used to take cyanocobalamin B12, not knowing that there was a better delivery system in the methylcobalamin.
    This was in earlier days, as I am high energy, love my coffee and B12. I was a gymnast for MANY years. When this latest “flare up” occurred, I just went to my chiropractor, as always. He couldn’t ‘ get it’. This tingling was really getting on my nerves this time. (Haha- so punny!!) I went to the Orthopedic Spine Specialist, as my family doc was not open.
    There, they took x-rays, and set me up for an MRI. The follow up doc whidpered MS, and sent me for a series of them, and a follow up with above mentioned neurologist.
    So, I find that I have fractured my neck twice, have scoliosis, degenerated discs, and…a Great spine.! If only I didn’t have all that white shadowing in the MRI! I never knew any of that before now. I just thought it was my body, and how I abused it talking to me. After all, I did just turn 50!
    Who gets diagnosed with this at 50?!?! Now my fix gives me information on tecfidera, and tells me,upon my inquiry, that 1000 MCG per day is more than enough of what I need in vitamin B12. He says I’m strong-I’m in good shape, not overweight, at all, eat well, and yet I still feel like I can put my finger right on the muscle in my shoulder that MUST house that pinched nerve.
    Can I get a massage, meditate, and YOGA my way out of this latest Episode??!

    I have numbness in my head, forgetfulness, and tend to stumble. Have fallen several times in the past. I see a neurologist and all he says is I have neuropathy. I feel that there is something more wrong because also have bowel and bladder issues which they blame on me taking pain med.For chronic pain.

    hi there,
    maybe your disease it not MS, but an infectious disease, caused by a tick bite. the bite can cause transfer of pathogenic bacteria in your body and without proper diagnosis and treatment it can be mortal. MD in the US are not very good detecting the pathogens causing the disease. probably you had Lyme disease caused by Borrelia bacteria, plus co-infections, Bartonella and Babesia. it quite difficult to know that you have Lyme because in the first phase of the disease it is almost impossible to be detected in blood sample. also the tests are not always realiable and are very expensive. the best test is Western Blot or PCR (polymerase chain reaction). these bacteria can be treated with abx (penicillin, amoxil, gemifloxacin, doxy and clindamycin and of course organic herbs.

    Hello Fred! You are correct that many diagnosed cases of MS (and other autoimmune conditions) are actually a result of Lyme Disease. Awesome that you are aware of this fact as many are not. (Sadly however, the Western Blot is not as accurate a test as you suggested.)

    This was not the issue I had and furthermore I no longer “have” a disease as you suggested in your first sentence of your comment. I have long turned my health issue around by implementing a holistic lifestyle encompassing the three major components of health: Nutritional, Physical, and Emotional. As I balanced these components, my health greatly improved and continues to do so everyday!

    That said, a wonder movie that I am sure you have seen ‘Under our skin’ (which I believe can be seen on Netflix) makes your point wonderfully. The idea that many autoimmune issue are actually the result of Lyme Disease.

    Side note: Aside from antibiotics, were you aware that high quality colloidal silver is extremely effective at killing the bacteria related to Lyme Disease?

    Thanks for your comment, it is much appreciated!

    Thank you Dr. Michelle, you are a gutsy lady who is so loving and gracious to answer some comments that are downright contentious, rude and mean. I am a RN, a grandmother that just turned 70. I am always on the bandwagon promoting health, speaking against big pharma, immunizations, toxins in our environment and in our food. Despite all that I speak and practice, I am far too busy, don’t get enough sleep, don’t exercise, and am exhausted all of the time and never feel well. I take no medications and have no disease process other than IBS and a grain intolerance, newly discovered, thank God. I eat a grain free “wheat Belly “diet which is basically Paleo plus dairy. I have a sweet tooth that I try to keep capped, however unsuccessfully. I am 130 lb, 5’3 and “look great”. I believe part of my lack of energy is a sluggish thyroid. We don’t have a sound Holistic doctor in our area . My chiropractor is amazing but her scope of practice is limited. I am stuck in a Rut. I would love to start a change. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for being you and standing up for truth. I am passing your links on to others. Sincerely, Sandra Walter

    Are you sure that your cheerios has trisodium phosphate? I checked my box of cheerios and it lists TRIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE. I am no chemist but i dont think the two are the same, Are they? Nevertheless, you should be accurate, especially in this field. You have lost all cedibility with me. I.e. Your claims to have healed yourself. If you cant even get the chemical names right, why should we believe you? Do you even know what youe are talking about?

    Hello “F”, Thanks for your question! You are correct, regular Cheerios contains “TRIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE” as you stated, however in the article that you are referring to, let’s take a look at the very first sentence:

    “Using the example of Banana Nut Cheerios, let’s just forget for a minute that there are GMO ingredients in this cereal. And let’s also forget that it contains A LOT of sugar…check this out:”

    and let’s also take a look at the image for the article is also clearly Banana Nut Cheerios Banana Nut Cheerios

    which clearly shows a box of Banana Nut Cheerios and its ingredients. If you look closely, you will see trisodium phosphate and not TRIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE (though this is ingredient is not any better and is also unnecessary in food…however that would be s topic of another article 🙂 ).

    I can understand how you could have been confused though “You have lost all credibility with me. I.e. Your claims to have healed yourself. If you can’t even get the chemical names right, why should we believe you? Do you even know what youe are talking about?” seemed a bit harsh especially given the reality of the article, wouldn’t you think?

    I sincerely hope that you continue to support OHH and please feel free to ask questions as that is how we clear up any misunderstandings.

    Wishing you the best of health!!

    Hi
    I have just recently been diagnosed with ALS which I know is not an autoimmune disease but neurological. I am committed to beating this and at the moment have orthotics which help me walk with a walker. I am taking lots of vitamins and eating a lot of organic food – well as much as I can. I am wondering how long does it take to reverse your diesase?
