A NORMAL LIFE, DESPITE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS: A sudden tingling that soon evolved into weaknesses and lack of control of the right arm and much fatigue. Ten years ago, Ana Claudia Domene woke up one day feeling the symptoms of what she thought was the result of too much physical activities on the previous day. But many tests, suspicion of symptoms caused by stress and anxiety, and half a dozen doctors later, she was faced with brain and spinal cord lesions and the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS).
The disease, which affects 2.3 million patients worldwide, according to...
ENGLISH: Beautiful testimony of Juliana Menezes, patient with Multiple Sclerosis who's been following the Coimbra Protocol for 4 years:
“I am not sure how to explain everything that has happened to me since 2015 when I received the diagnosis of MS and the news of my pregnancy (on the same day).
The neurologist told me then that I could not breastfeed and that I had to go through some steroid sessions throughout pregnancy and postpartum. It was all very limiting, very different from what I had imagined for my life.
And then, researching, I found about the Coimbra Protocol. So many doubts, so many fears, so many “nos” that I heard from the neurologists I went, until I saw that I had no alternative but to try, and I tried, my fa...

"I have had Multiple Sclerosis for 21 years, when I discovered the disease, the most famous neurologists in São Paulo told me to use an interferon, I chose not to take the medication and just kept living my life.Nine years later I had another relapse and was hospitalized to take steroids.

ENGLISH: Post by Lili Bilić, a patient from Croatia diagnosed with Lyme Disease 7 years ago and for the last two years following the Coimbra Protocol.
"Hello everybody, soon it will be 2 years that I'm on the protocol so I'll share with you how, 7 years ago, the right side of my face fell down, and there my problems started. After that I got Lhermite, with a shock going down arms and legs. In all my relapses the tests showed high leukocytes, so the doctors believes that the lesions were being caused by the bark tick, which was later confirmed.
In 2016 I had 4 new cervical lesions of up to 2 cm each and was experiencing progressive deterioration... About all the symptoms I had I could write a novel, so it'll be easier to write...

Since then I've had not one outbreak. to not get worse, to me is a sign of improvement... I haven't had any relapse in 14 years.

"... I've followed this treatment for 9 years and I'm doing great. I was diagnosed with MS 14 years ago and before the vitamin D, I had 3 or 4 relapses a year.
