MS MARATHON: Recapturing the Bright Light

As you continue your marathon of getting your life back, you must always remember along the way that MS is a dark shadow; and most importantly, that the darkest shadow is always cast by the brightest of light.  In your case, the brightest light is the genetic make-up of your past – prior to the surfacing of MS.

It is possible to recapture your bright light because genes have memory; you just have to retrain them.

By laying the proper foundation and then continuing to build on that foundation with correct actions, you can get your “genetic light” back which will allow you to rid yourself of fatigue and, above all, regain your balance.

The following are good building-blocks to put on your “genetic light” foundation:

1. When you store food in your refrigerator, use only glass containers to do so.

2. Consume fluids that are contained only in glass.

3. Eat as much fresh vegetables as possible.

4. Eat whole foods (non-processed).

  1. I have had MS for over 10 years. It started as lyme disease and turned into MS.
    I had CCSVI done, Stem cell, eat only paleo diet, no dairy, no sugar and I still don’t feel right.
    Thank you for all the good information you give to us. This is a tricky disease and I hope with your help I’ll get better.
    Thank you,

    • Linda,

      The critter that causes Lyme Disease is just part of the problem. Hopefully, it has been taken care of. The Paleo diet and no dairy are also good. Be careful about “no sugar” What you really want to know is the level of your A1C. The approach to solving your problem depends on your age, gender, medications, supplements being consumed, type of exercise done on a daily basis, types of liquids consumed, etc, and the list goes on. Getting your life back is a process; but it can be done.

  2. I have lived with an MS diagnosis for 35 years now. I am very fortunate with the course of ‘my’ MS.I am ambulatory, either with a cane or a walker. In my home, I do not use a walking aid ever. I am gratefully still able to drive my car. I am 66 years of age now. I am very happy and grateful for everything this MS journey has allowed me. I hope to continue on this path for as long as God wills. Thank you for your advice.

    • Hallo Carmelia,
      First, greetings from the Gran Sabana in Venezuela.
      I have seen we have the same age, but 40 years with MS.
      I was born 1947 in germany. My home is in the Gran Sabana and
      a very special place.
      Since a time I ordered the “The Essentials” from Dr. Rudy C. in San Diego.
      It woud be nice if you can answer.
      Kind regards
      Manfred W.F.

  3. Thanks for the reminders. I do try to follow the glass container routine. If I do use plastic I always look for the ones that are approved. Thanks again…Sandy

  4. Dear Dr. Rudy,
    I try so many of the suggested things, I have dealt with MS since my kids were young, they are grown now, I am thankful for the fact that I was able to be involved with all of their activities. I am in a wheelchair and want to do whatever it takes to get out, I have faith & hope that this can happen. Thank you so much for staying & trying to help us all. Any further suggestions would be appreciated. Sincerely Belinda Richardson

  5. Good morning,

    May greetings
    kind regards

  6. I had been diagnosed with relapsing MS. Now after a brain MRI, the neurologist feels I have primary/progressive MS. What can I do? At least with relapsing there are treatments to help me feel better. Now the doctor says there is nothing I can do, or take, to help me. I have not gotten any info online. Can you please help me?

    • Marsha,

      Because you have progressed from Relapsing Remitting MS to the “Secondary Progressive MS”–not Primary Progressive MS–, the way forward to get better depends on a number of things. Your age, length of time you’ve had MS, the different medications you’ve been tried on, type of diet, supplements being taken, bowel or bladder problems, use of cane walker or wheelchair, and a number of other things. MS is like a “Rope-Tug”; there are two sides, a disease side and a HEALTH side. Strengthening the health side will pay off big-time.

  7. Thank you for the re enforcement I appreciate it. I am doing all of these things… using only glass! I am believing for the best outcome…I hope to see improvement soon!
    I’m trying to eat as much a paleo as possible… bright colours, lots of green, little meat,fish!
    thanks, Brenda Luka

  8. I would eat supper and few hours later terrible leg cramp in my right leg, first of all, the right side of my brain has the damaged myelin. So some nights no leg cramps, so it came down to the nights I had beef, pork, butter, cheese or even margarine. When I had fish, chicken, turkey only white meat, no cramps. I was later told that the heavy fats entered the blood stream starving the muscles of oxygen.

  9. My husband Terry has progressive MS after 11 years this June. He was living at home until October 27, 2013 when he requested to go to the nursing home. He is bed ridden but can handle his electric wheelchair fairly well. His right arm is paralized as are his legs, and he has awful spasms if he doesn’t get a bolus of baclofen every 4 hours. He was on betaseron until his neurologist told us it was no longer effective with progressive MS. He also has congestive heart. My questions are, is there anything that can help slow the progression and help him improve even a little? Are there any trials going on in or around Arkansas? I am also disabled with severe Fibromyalgia and arthritis, along with all the symptoms that go with them. He wants to come home but I can’t care for him and he can only get 42 hours a week of CNA help. I appreciate any information you can send me.

    • Cathy,

      It is obvious that you have a doctor who knows how to hang tough in trying to solve the riddle of Primary Progressive MS. It is also obvious that you and your husband are real fighters. As such, You can begin the struggle to get your lives back by taking vitamin D3, 10,000 IU each and every day. This just the beginning. Keep in mind that you have to do likewise. You must join in. You will find out that when he starts to fell better, so will you.

  10. I was diagnosed in November 2013. I am terrified, my sister was diagnosed 19 years ago and I have watched her deterioration over the years. I want to do everything I can to avoid the same path. What should I be doing? I live in South Africa and there seems to be little to no real help for MS patients.
    Please help.

  11. I have heard all about the BPA’s and have been trying to avoid them. The only problem is, all my frozen vegetables and frozen fruit come in plastic packages (especially in the winter months when you can’t get some fruits/vegetables fresh) I also do Paleo, take vit D3 daily, Copaxone, Baclefen, treadmill for exercise I still don’t feel any different. I was taking the Essential for about 3yrs ( about 3yrs age) but at that time I wasn’t doing anything to help my MS. I tried different thing at different time. I am feeling hopeless but can’t give up. I am GREATFUL to you for all that you do for us. God Bless you
