On a personal note:
Do you have an autoimmune disease or know someone that does? MS, Lupas, Type 1 Diabetes, Vitaligo, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, IBD, Sjogren's, Hashimoto's, Myastenia Gravis, and so on. There's actually over 100 autoimmune diseases. I just want you to know there is an alternative to the harsh, immune-suppressive "high risk, low reward" drugs that are offered through conventional medicine. I have Multiple Sclerosis, and after tons of research, I found a remarkable protocol developed 20 years ago in Brazil by Dr. Cicero Coimbra. (much less expensive than my co-pays would have been for Ocrevus) He's a brilliant, humble Neurologist/Scientist. He teaches other doctors for free how to administer the protocol and monitor patients. I've been on the protocol for a year with great results. It's based on high doses of Vit D3 while maintaining a low calcium diet. It does require a protocol doctor to make any necessary dose adjustments and monitor your lab tests to make sure you aren't getting too much calcium in your blood. I feel compelled to shout to the world about the Coimbra protocol because it has helped so many thousands of people get their lives back. It not only appears to stop the progression of most autoimmune diseases for most patients, many find that recent symptoms (1-2 years) disappear. It is now being tested on Autism with encouraging results. The facebook group "Coimbra Protocol" has over 11,000 members. Join it and you'll find lots of information and a list of doctors, and a truly wonderful, supportive bunch of people. There are very few protocol doctors in the US, but there are doctors that will skype or Zoom the appointments. I live in Georgia, and my protocol doctor is in Seattle. Skyped appointments work well. There is also a site: "Coimbraprotocol.com" that tells about the protocol and has many testimonials. OK, that's my first and probably last public service announcement!.
