Barbara C. is a 23 year-old female who was diagnosed with MS in December 1996. Prior to beginning the vitamin program, she suffered from extreme fatigue. She also suffered severe pain from a torn meniscus in her knee after a fall and a back injury from a previous car accident. She sometimes used a wheelchair to get around outside the house. "I had no energy. I was tired all of the time. I could barely sit at the computer for more than 15 minutes", she said. She was taking several different prescription drugs including steroids, Avones injections, Baclofen, Paxil, and Imitrex for migraines.
She began the vitamins on November 4, 2001 at level 1 and began to feel more energetic the next day. Barbara Ann noted that she experienced some stomach pains on levels 3 and 4 of the program but she monitored her doses until her body began to tolerate them. She has now weaned herself off of all of her prescription medications and is looking forward to driving, running up the steps again, and keeping up with her 14 month old daughter. She still experiences some pain from her prior injuries but says she feels great and maintains a positive attitude. She has already lost 12 pounds in less than a month while on the program.
