Greasy ointments, smelling tars, drugs that made my hair fall out, my gums bleed and my lips swell! Every prescription gave me hope, every drug took that away.  My dermatologist was at his wit's end.  Finally I was approved for Enbrel!  The wonder drug!  But alas, MS i...

Be Prepared!  Take it with you!  Keep you body pH balanced throughout your day!
