BB Diet: I'd like to say I feel better, but
Tuesday, January 03, 2012
I have a cold again. And interesting upshot (try to follow my logic, faulty that it might be) is this:
In brief, MS is an overactive immune system.
I used to never get colds, while the MS was otherwise savaging my body.
I take a weekly interferon shot to turn down my over active immune system.
Now that I am eating better and somewhat controlling my over active immune system, the shot leaves me wide open for whatever virus is floating by. Evidence: the last two times I did my shot I had the customary flu-like symptoms, but then a real cold,... which my body shut down quickly, but it was still there.
I'm doing my shot once every week and a half, rather than once a week. I think I'll try next to put in only half the dose.
What does my neurologist say about this? Who knows? Even though I have MS every day, I only get to see him twice a year for 15 minutes.
I'll book a visit with a naturopath soon and follow up with my GP.
