Vitamin D and MS

The genetic link to vitamin Di deficiency for people with MSi:

 I found this on the BBC this morning and am posting it here because I can’t seem to make a new topic or blog at the moment: perhaps I am blacklisted!   I thought it very important, though, because it suggests a link between vitamin D deficiency and an infection.  So maybe the start of the realisation that there is more to MS than autoimmunityi .................

A Journey through Light and Shadow

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MSi in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Good stuff. Thank you Timaca and Sarah for sharing it!

Thanks Timaca and Sarah!  Great articles!  I've added these to the Vit D Book here:

Thanks Red, Timaca, Sarah, et al for getting these posted. David and others have been asserting that the autoimmune response in MSi is secondary for a long time. The D link and the impact on bacterial and viral immunity is another brick in the foundation!
