Mission Statement

This website documents one man's quest to cure his MS through determination, perseverance and a little luck.

Although harsh drugs and strict diet were successfully supressing my devestating MS relapses, disease progression was quickly deteriorating my ability to walk and slowly deteriorating my ability to think. The logical solution for me was to try HSCT, which is not FDA approved, so I left the country to do it. This website documents my research and journey to effect a cure.

I was up three times getting sick, which was apparently more than anyone else in Group 1, but four of five of us got sick to some degree. One of the big problems was that I couldn’t keep any oral medication down.

I’m back in the chemo chair again now (day -10), but the nurse started me off with a bottle of saline for rehydration, and she included additional medication that neutralized most of the queasiness almost instantly. Ahh. Earlier, I felt like I might if I had drunk a whole bottle of tequila last night.

Five or six more hours to go, then I’ll have a week off from the cyclophosphamide. We’re supposed to feel better this weekend I’ll give myself a break from my strict, anti-inflammatory diet, but for the next few weeks, everything I eat needs to be either pasteurized or thoroughly cooked.
