The genetic link to vitamin D deficiency for people with MS:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-16086004.

 I found this on the BBC this morning and am posting it here because I can’t seem to make a new topic or blog at the moment: perhaps I am blacklisted!   I thought it very important, though, because it suggests a link between vitamin D deficiency and an infection.  So maybe the start of the realisation that there is more to MS than autoimmunity .................

A Journey through Light and Shadow

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Good stuff. Thank you Timaca and Sarah for sharing it!

Misdiagnosed with RRMS 2010. Dx CPn and multiple viral infections in 2011. Dx Autonomic Dysfunction 2012. Did Wheldon protocol for six months 2011. Currently taking Valcyte, Famvir, Equalibrant and supplements.

 

 

Thanks Red, Timaca, Sarah, et al for getting these posted. David and others have been asserting that the autoimmune response in MS is secondary for a long time. The D link and the impact on bacterial and viral immunity is another brick in the foundation!
