Help MS

by Frances
(Colorado)

I am in search of finding a way to defeat my MS. I was raised holistic and continue to follow this path for my healing. I was told that Progesterone and Estriol could coat the damaged nerves. Thus, help in ushering my MS out of my body. I have begun taking the two medications. Is this true that the two items can coat my nerves? Furthermore, can the Progestrone(100 mg) make some drinks taste bitter? Additionally, can the two help prevent breast cancer? I hope to possibly hear back.

Hi Frances I'm delighted you've written in about MS, as there is much you can do to help it. I've not heard that oestriol can help re-myelinate the nerve fibres, but progesterone certainly can. It doesn't 'coat' them, but does stimulate the myelin to grow again, see here,here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here here. You mention taking the progesterone, if so it's the least effective Delivery system. Most of it gets destroyed by the gut and liver. You really need high amounts of a system which allows the progesterone to be absorbed well. I prefer the cream as it can be used anywhere. I would recommend using 500mg/day to begin with, lower amounts are not going to do much. We do have more info on our page How to use progesterone cream. If you do use this amount, you probably won't get any Oestrogen Dominance either. Continued below.

Hi Frances The other thing you need to take is vitamin D, at least 10,000iu's per day. But please have a blood test done before you start taking it. There's now evidence a lack of vitamin D causes MS, see here, here, here, here, here, here and here. I believe it's a lack of both progesterone and vitamin D. This is evident in studies done on TBI victims. They found adding vitamin D to the progesterone protocol, the effect was enhanced. For more info on vitamin D levels, testing etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth, Birmingham Hospital and Vitamin D Links websites. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml or 175-250nmol/L and not the 30ng/ml or 75nmol/L most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. Progesterone itself is very bitter, so oral progesterone might make drinks taste bitter, the cream certainly doesn't have this effect. And progesterone has been used successfully in many cancers, see our Cancer page. Take care Wray

Thank you so much for the advice. It is much needed and appreciated. I will up my vitamin D intake. I take other supplements too. Now, you think the cream is as effective as the oral for the Progesterone? It is bitter! I also take LDN(Low Dose Naltrexone) for the MS and Estriol. Respectfully--Frances

Hi Frances Please have a test done before you up your vitamin D, it's most important to find out if this is the reason for the MS. Which I'm sure it is, judging by the studies. The cream is not as effective as oral progesterone, but far more so. If you read the papers on the page I gave you, you'll see that oral progesterone is not only destroyed in the gut, but has to pass through the liver too. Which metabolises it further. It's the least effective means of getting progesterone into the circulation, probably in the region of 10-20% becomes available. I don't believe you need the oestriol, it is an oestrogen, albeit not as potent as oestradiol. There are no studies on naltrexone and MS, it's all anecdotal, see here. It apparently works by preventing glutamate excitotoxicity, both progesterone and vitamin D prevent this. Progesterone is neuroprotective, please read those papers I gave you. Take care Wray
