Thx vairagi, that's useful stuff. Yep, heard about hyperbaric oxygen in this context, as well as the zapper. The possible connexion with mycoplasma is new to me tho, but an interesting hypothesis.
I have a hard time excluding a familial (ie genetic) connexion tho coz of the implausibly high rate of incidence within a single family - 3 out of 4 siblings so far. Which then begs the question, if there is a genetic 'predisposition' to MS, will any alternative protocols work for them?
One obvious answer must be whether any of your suggestions are capable of reversing at least some of the damage in the worst-affected sibling who is now almost immobile. That would be one sure-fire way of determining efficacy of these alternative protocols, even if it only has anecdotal value. What, if any of your suggestions, do you think offers him the best chance of seeing tangible results?
