My name is Mark and I was diagnosed with a form of MS in the fall of 2008. I quickly developed the following symptoms: numbness, heaviness and lack of flexibility in my legs and hips, especially on the left side, causing me to limp; limited bowel and urinary functions; lack of stamina, energy, and balance. As a licensed massage therapist and someone who is trained in and understands the human body, it felt like my whole world was collapsing. I couldn’t stand without pausing to gain my balance. I could barely manage loading my massage table into my car. The fatigue was unbelievable. Only my hands remained strong.
But I consider myself blessed. My personal doctor happens to be highly sought after in fitness and nutrition fields. He knew of the Klenner Protocol and has three patients who are currently symptom free. The MRI’s he ordered revealed lesions in my brain and on my spine, confirming his initial diagnosis. He immediately suggested a bi-weekly treatment of infusions (Chelation) that over time eliminate the toxins causing the lesions. In addition, he prescribed thiamine injections with liver extract, the foundation to the whole protocol, plus a host of IV supplements including large doses of vitamin C as well as an oral supplement regimen. We did do tests for food allergies to eliminate any adverse reactions, so of course I have restrictions on my diet too, eliminating some of my favorite foods. A small price to pay! I started doing all of this right away.
I must tell you that my doctor also sent me to a university MS specialist for a second opinion. The specialist said he would recommend treating the symptoms with steroids and that there was no known cure yet for MS. I chose to follow my own doctor’s advice based on his track record and fight to cure myself and get my health back. It’s a grueling ritual; believe me, and one that my health insurance doesn’t cover. But I can tell you we’ve made real progress.
Now over six months later, I’m back to working 4 or 5 hours a day. My bowel and urinary habits are back to normal. I don’t limp and I don’t have to struggle for balance. And, while this may be over-sharing, my wife’s and my sex life is terrific. My recent MRI reveals my brain lesions have almost entirely cleared up and are waiting to do a thoracic MRI. So the news is good. I have never taken a steroid or chemo injection.
But honestly, I’m not out of the woods yet. I still have those horrible pins and needles, which my doctor says is a good sign and there are days when I do get tired. So I get discouraged from time to time. But as my doc says, look how far you’ve come in 6 or 7 months, and think back to how bad you felt in the beginning. I know I will lick this!

If I can be of any help to you or someone you know, please don’t hesitate to reach me.
