Post by Vanessa Amorim, patient of Dr. Luiz Guedes in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil:
"Good evening people! I would like to share my story with you. I'm 31 years old and 6 years ago I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, since then I experienced numerous relapses, tried many medications and lived with the uncertainty of what the future held for me.
In my first flare up, I awoke with a numbness on my right foot, which in a few days spread all over the right side of my body. I went to several doctors,I did several tests and finally I was hospitalized after an MRI showed some lesions. In the hospital I did the spinal tap that confirmed the diagnosis, I ended up staying 10 days in the hospital taking corticosteroids. When I was discharged I still had weakness on the right side and blurred vision.
It was difficult, being 25 years old and having 10,000 of things going on, accepting and understanding that nothing else would be like before. Since then I have used fingolimode, copaxane, Beta interferon, natalizumab which caused me a relapse after another and always left damages.
I started to research about the Coimbra protocol and finally I made an appointment with Dr Luiz Guedes, who showed me the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm doing the treatment with Vitamin D 130,000 UI, I take Magnesium 3x a day, glutamine and the vitamin compound. It's only been 3 months but the changes are huge! My symptoms and the constant relapses have vanished, along with the endless fatigue. Following the diet I've already lost 11 kgs.
I am very happy and grateful to Dr Luiz Guedes who accompanies me and Dr Cícero Coimbra, for creating this protocol and putting it into practice, bringing quality of life for many people like me. It's really worth it! If I can do it, you can do it too!"
