I am very happy to say that the Magic Juice that I kind of invented for my wife is still working much better than medication and has no side effects. With MS she used to have terrible pains all over mostly at night. Those pains come from inflammation and the juice which is mostly made from fresh beets and berries seems to have completely eliminated them. She still has all sorts of other issues such as electric shocks but maybe that has to do with her being married to an electrician.
I wish I could help with those but unfortunately I can't. I think we are going to try Gamma Knife or anti inflammatory shots in her spine which is dangerous but there doesn't seem to be a choice.
(My wife named it the Magic Juice, she drinks a shot 3 times a day)

Good job with the juice. It actually sounds pretty tasty. Before you try more scary treatments, you could look into infrared saunas which people are reporting to help a number of conditions, including the inflammation and symptoms of ms. Doesn't seem like there would be much to lose in trying.

WEW both like it. I put a couple of apples in there and a bunch of carrots so it isn't tart. But there is horseraddish and a lot of fresh ginger in it so it does have a tang. Everything that is for lowering inflamation.

Paul, I love the fact that you literally post everything and anything but this last magic juice post deserves awards. It deserves awards because it shows how good of person you truly are and that you clearly love your wife and would do anything to help her. Keep the post coming, I don’t care if they are tank related or not. I enjoy reading what you have to say and I nominate you for a daily news brief by Paul B if MR could make that happen I think the world would be a better place.

Thanks Guys. We just came back from Our Daughters other house in Vermont. A 6 hour drive including the hour ferry ride to here on eastern Long Island. Yesterday it was 1 degree and about 8" of snow. Good to be home. My tank looks like sheet metal so I had to scrape off the glass which really put a lot of stuff into solution and it looks scurvy so I had to put my diatom filter on to clean it. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

Hey, I never took the ferry. Did it save a lot of time, or headaches from driving?

Yes it did. It won't save time, but it saves you from driving for an hour. I would have driven from the Throgs Neck, or Whitestone Bridge, 60 miles on the Long Island Expressway which as you know this time of the year is little more than a parking lot. The Ferry takes about an hour and you can sleep or eat,have coffee or throw yourself into the sea.

It's great.
