One thought on “Positive MS News: September 2015

  1. When I saw your name on another blog (with the comment), I thought such a Dutch name! Now I see your last name, it looks like old Dutch – is it?
    The bullet points about MS make sense to me -vit. D is good for uptake of vit. C and melatonin is a relaxer. Don’t give up hope with the MS!
    (Oh I almost forgot – I am Dutch but lived more than 3 decades in California)
