A woman who says her life was made miserable by fatigue caused by multiple sclerosis (MS), claims she is on the road to recovery because she has taken control of her body and is using a combination of hormones and diet.
Instead of relying on conventional treatment, she is praising hormone treatment and a new diet for making life worth living again. “I was listening to doctors, but not now,” she told me.
Lisa, whose last name I am withholding, lives in a town in upstate New York. She was a nurse before she was forced to retire because of MS and received a number of different therapies before striking out on her own.
“I was given Tysabri, which is very strong and has a risk of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). I have also taken Avonex (interferon beta-1a). In fact, I ‘ve been on several disease-modifying therapies over the years. I consider I have paid my dues in that arena,” she said.
“It was my experience as a nurse that led me to notice that as women with the disease became pregnant, their symptoms lessened as their hormones increased naturally. Pregnant women don’t have relapses,” she said.
“It seemed too much of a coincidence, so I thought it had to be tried. I had estriol, an estrogen, as a lotion that is absorbed through skin, while progesterone is tablet,” she said.
Taking part in life
But that’s not all, diet also has been involved.
“I have started eating an anti-inflammatory diet, no red meat, dairy products, or gluten — and all that seems to be working, too,” said Lisa.
