NARCOMS – Global Multiple Sclerosis Patient Registry for research

NARCOMS – Global Multiple Sclerosis Patient Registry for research, MS treatment and patient education.

Once you are registered with this registry, you are invited 4 times a year to record your "progression" along the Multiple Sclerosis road of life. You are given a non-identifiable number when you submit your information into the international registry .

Once completing a survey, you can go back over your previous answers for all the surveys you have done and can print them out for your local MS team so that they can share in your treatment options and they can see the progression since your last visit. The researchers behind the online registry never know the identities behind the numbers, but they do ask for your zip or postal code for trends within "localized" areas.

The information you present benefits the whole macro community of MS patients. When researchers gather information from a large community they can see trends in the disease (and deduce local influences etc) and make educated recommendations to MS professionals in your area to benefit your treatment and others who visit those professionals.

Stem Cell research

Perhaps a side effect of MS could be a slight PSI boost. I have always predicted that Stem Cells will be the eventual cure to many conditions affecting the human race... Stem cells are the building blocks of our body. They form in the placenta as we develop in the womb and are carried through the umbilical cord to our embryonic selves. These cells, it has been discovered are produced by the body through all stages in our lives.

The PSI Boost of MS seems to be a good theory, Many researchers have similar thoughts. The MS Society has been active in researching Stem cells as a treatment to Multiple Sclerosis. When research first began, It quickly became a controversial treatment as the stem cells were originally discovered and harvested by conducting autopsies on miscarried or aborted fetuses. Later research has found these valuable cells throughout the human body in all stages of life and the horrors of the initial research has faded into the mists of time.  These cells have been called "the building blocks of humanity.

These cells have shown promise in aiding to repair the internal damage caused by the effects of Multiple sclerosis, by having the ability to regrow cells needed to "manufacture" new Myelin. Myelin is the sheath that covers nerves and allows signals from the brain to reach "disabled" parts of the body.  It is also where the damage and disability comes in with MS.  The link below will explain what findings the researchers have discovered so far, and gives hope that a cure will someday be found.  Enjoy!

Smoking ithe worst addiction

If you have the twisted veins and you expend the required amount of life savings towards your health in an aggressive untested CCVSI procedure. why would you continue to smoke tobacco? Makes no sense to me. Quit now please. "How?" you question.
Simple. Just walk away. Or roll if CCVSI did not do as you fully expected. Dispose of that pack of cigarettes in an environmentally friendly way, toss those smokeless products far into the proper landfills and QUIT SMOKING! Let the procedure work to the best of its' ability. I know. It is easy for me to say It is not really all that easy. 5 years and 6 months later, I still feel the urge for a cigarette. Regardless of ability or lack thereof QUIT NOW! Kids don't start! GAWD I NEED ONE NOW! QUIT IT!
Smoking increases multiple sclerosis progression: Report
Oh yea. OK the urge does pass fast. That darn MonSter is bothered by tobacco smoke. It loves Marijuana smoke though. That also has been shown to be a common factor in newly diagnosed patients; that darn addiction to tobacco. Marijuana use increses the longer one has lived with the MonSter. I often wonder if tobacco contributed to the way my life turned out. Well, you know... Come to think of it, we all quit everything one day someday :) Be well as you travel through time with us

Don't waste medical research money chasing unicorns

Sounds like good advice to me... :) I should research History of MS in the near future. Drug Companies have been profiting for years. When everything is reveled people 100 years from now will mention our names and medical conditions with a look of disbelieving remembrance.  There will be laws in place to prevent things from happening in every condition.  Till then however, survive and adapt....  and "Don't waste medical research money chasing unicorns "
