Reply To: what else is there-other than physio

My hubby came down with CIDP 3 years ago. 8 months of going down hill. Paralyzed in a nursing home for 4 1/2 months. He was 56 and about as active as possible.

He has walked his first half marathon, skis every sunday and kayaks 2-3 times per week when the weather permits. Actually was able to run a bit last week. Recovery is still happening. Not as fast as we would like, but still happening.

I made him take tons of supplements. I figured if there is any chance it helps, go for it.

Fish oil (Barleans), Vitamin B12, Lions Mane, Vitamin D (we live in Washington state). His neurologist has been amazed at his recovery. Still not 100%, but pretty darn good. We changed to organic whenever possible to take any stress off the body. We eat a very healthy diet, but enjoy our vices a bit also.

Remember, many of the situations discussed here may not be a true overview of how people recovery. Many people will go away after they recover. Move on and live their lives.
