101. HBOT, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Alternative Therapies For Body And Mind
Treatment for conditions including stroke, cerebral palsy, and multiple sclerosis. Ohio, USA.
Alternative Therapies for Body and Mind
Cincinnati Hyperbarics
is a Ohio based clinic specializing in hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a form of treatment that allows a person to breath 100% oxygen while they are in a pressurized chamber. Hyperbaric Oxygen has been in use for many years to treat many different conditions, such as, stroke , head injury, cerebral palsy, bone-fracture, migraine headaches, chronic fatigue-syndrome (CFS), sports injuries, AIDS, sickle cell anemia, acute spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis (MS), Lyme disease , diabetic retinopathy, colitis, and diabetic foot ulcers. HBOT enhances the body's natural-healing process virtually risk free. Cincinnati Hyperbarics was founded by Dr. Ted Cole . Dr. Cole has been in practice for over 12 years, and is at the forefront of innovative and effective medical treatments. Dr. Cole has used alternative medicine since the opening of his office, and has a unique blend of both orthodox and alternative approaches. After a great deal of research and study, hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been added as an extension to the already large number of therapies available to his patients. Dr. Cole knows that hyperbaric oxygen is best used as a part of an overall approach to one's health care, and should not be viewed as a "miracle cure" for every condition. Cincinnati Hyperbarics is owned and operated by Dr. Cole as a freestanding center. Unlike many other facilities, it is not operated by technicians or a "medical director" that is rarely, if ever, actually on the premises of the hyperbaric facility. At Cincinnati Hyperbarics, Dr. Cole evaluates every patient. He designs and supervises every patient's course of therapy. He monitors every patient's progress, and is able to provide other treatments to accelerate and enhance each person's recovery. By using his vast experience and knowledge to combine hyperbaric oxygen with other therapies, he is able to ensure that you get the type of care that is best for you and your particular condition.

106. Multiple Sclerosis Sucks
After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (usually abbreviated to MS) in February2001 at age 41, the National multiple sclerosis Society was kind enough
How to Suffer From a Chronic and Incurable Disease
Without Appearing to be a Total Loser After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (usually abbreviated to MS) in February 2001 at age 41, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society was kind enough to send me a glossy book called Incidental Heroes: Disabling the Myths About Multiple Sclerosis (published by the The National Multiple Sclerosis Society in 1999). It's an impressive book but I'm not a hero and, to tell you the truth, I'm not really interested in heroes. Right from the start I wanted to know how ordinary people cope with MS. What are they thinking? What are they doing? I mean, what are they really thinking? An alarmingly large fraction of the MS literature that I've read has been serious, sensible, and sanctimonious, and therefore runs the risk of being turgid, tedious, and trite. This website is one man's attempt to change that. I think it is important that MS sufferers and their caregivers maintain a sense of humor. I've read that humor can improve health, and that it improves the quality of life. If you have MS and you're not ready for humor yet - many MS patients will take years to reach that point and some will never get there - then read no further. If you don't have MS and are looking for humor only, I should warn you that MS is a serious subject so if you are squeamish, then likewise, now is a good time to bail out. You can browse this website at random using the numbered list of sections in the Table of Contents . Alternatively, you'll find some of the following symbols on the top and bottom of each page. Clicking on them (later, not on this page) will take you to the following sections:

InsideMS Keep S'myelin Sourcebook ... Web Resources
Brochures Someone You Know Has MS: A Book for Families Adapted by Martha King from original material by Cyrisse Jaffee, Debra Frankel, Barbara LaRoche, and Patricia Dick Illustrations by Claude Martinot A Note to Parents Children are far less fragile than you think, and are more able to accept painful realities than we generally assume. Parents often try to protect their children by hiding painful issues, but open and honest communication among family members is valuable and important. In the long run it builds trust. Not all the issues identified in this booklet will be relevant to your child’s situation. Because MS is so variable and each family is unique, you may want to personalize this booklet when you read it aloud to your child. There are many unanswered questions about multiple sclerosis. While it may be frustrating to you and your child, sharing this frustration can actually reassure her/him. We hope you will use your local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for additional support and information. If you find your family is having significant difficulty, you may want to seek family counseling or other assistance. Resources and referrals are available through your chapter.

multiple sclerosis (MS) is a debilitating disease of the central nervoussystem which affects young adults, sometimes with astonishing speed.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a debilitating disease of the central nervous system which affects young adults, sometimes with astonishing speed. The need for a positive attitude in handling the disease is essential. In order to achieve this, those affected by MS and those who care for them need, not only professional assistance, but also an understanding of how to fight and live with such a disability. As a direct result of tremendous public support and enthusiasm from those affected by MS, their families and friends, in 1985, sufficient funds had been raised to open the original Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre in Princes Risborough.
Purpose and Functions:
  • The purpose of the Therapy Centre is to offer treatment, help and support to those people affected by Multiple Sclerosis living in the Chilterns area. It is estimated that there are 500 people with MS in the branch area. The functions of the Centre are:
    • To provide treatments and care for people affected by MS and support for their families and friends. To collect data for use in research into MS.

    Brand Name Chemical Name Avonex
    (U.S. and Canada) Interferon beta-1a Primary Usage in MS Generic Available Disease-modifying agent No This medication is taken by injection. Description
    Avonex is a medication manufactured by a biotechnological process from one of the naturally-occurring interferons (a type of protein). It is made up of exactly the same amino acids (major components of proteins) as the interferon beta found in the human body. In controlled clinical trials in relapsing MS, those taking the medication had a reduced risk of disability progression, experienced fewer exacerbations, and showed a reduction in number and size of active lesions in the brain (as shown on MRI) when compared with the group taking a placebo. In a subsequent study of patients who had experienced a single demyelinating event in the optic nerve, spinal cord, or brainstem, and had lesions typical of MS on brain MRI, Avonex significantly delayed the time to a second exacerbation, and thus to a clinically definite diagnosis of MS. Approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

    Remember Me I forgot my password COPAXONE (glatiramer acetate injection) is indicated for the reduction of relapses in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. The most common side effects of COPAXONE are redness, pain, swelling, itching, or a lump at the site of injection, flushing, chest pain, weakness, infection, pain, nausea, joint pain, anxiety, and muscle stiffness. These reactions are usually mild and seldom require professional treatment. Be sure to tell your doctor about any side effects. Some patients report a short-term reaction right after injecting COPAXONE . This reaction can involve flushing (feeling of warmth and/or redness), chest tightness or pain with heart palpitations, anxiety, and trouble breathing. These symptoms generally appear within minutes of an injection, last about 15 minutes, and go away by themselves without further problems. After you inject COPAXONE , call your doctor right away if you develop hives, skin rash with irritation, dizziness, sweating, chest pain, trouble breathing, severe pain at the injection site or other uncomfortable changes in your general health. Do not give yourself any more injections until your doctor tells you to begin again.

    Fact Sheet
    Table of Contents: Introduction Although multiple sclerosis (MS) was first diagnosed in 1849, the earliest known description of a person with possible MS dates from fourteenth century Holland. An unpredictable disease of the central nervous system, MS can range from relatively benign to somewhat disabling to devastating as communication between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted. The vast majority of patients are mildly affected, but in the worst cases MS can render a person unable to write, speak, or walk. A physician can diagnose MS in some patients soon after the onset of the illness. In others, however, physicians may not be able to readily identify the cause of the symptoms, leading to years of uncertainty and multiple diagnoses punctuated by baffling symptoms that mysteriously wax and wane. Once a diagnosis is made with confidence, patients must consider a profusion of informationand misinformationassociated with this complex disease. This brochure is designed to convey the latest information on the diagnosis, course, and possible treatment of MS, as well as highlights of current research. Although a pamphlet cannot substitute for the advice and expertise of a physician, it can provide patients and their families with information to understand MS better so that they can actively participate in their care and treatment.

    Brand Name Chemical Name Betaseron
    (U.S. and Canada) Interferon beta-1b Primary Usage in MS Generic Available Disease-modifying agent No This medication is taken by injection. Description
    Betaseron is a medication manufactured by a biotechnological process from one of the naturally occurring interferons (a type of protein). In a clinical trial of 372 ambulatory patients with relapsing-remitting MS, those taking the currently recommended dose of the medication experienced fewer exacerbations, a longer time between exacerbations, and exacerbations that were generally less severe than those of patients taking a lower dose of the medication or a placebo. Additionally, patients on interferon beta-1b had no increase in total lesion area, as shown on MRI, in contrast to the placebo group, that had a significant increase. Approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
    Betaseron is approved by the FDA for the treatment of relapsing forms of MS to reduce the frequency of clinical exacerbations. Relapsing forms of MS include individuals with secondary-progressive MS who continue to experience relapses or acute attacks.
