Dr Parry’s book

After hearing Dr Parry speak this past weekend at the MN Chapter meeting I feel I have a much better understanding of the two diseases. GBS is a triggered auto immune response in that you get it, it last however long its going to last and then you recover. How much you recover is very dependant on how much was injured. The myelin sheath, and I didnt quite understand this before is that it never completely heals/regenerates to its former self. The incomplete healing is what allows residuals to happen. When your body is stressed (from almost any possible reason) it can casue what is termed residuals. Its not the disease coming back, just the syptoms are present from the incomplete healing of the nerves.

CIPD is the continued attack of the body on its myelin sheath over a long period. It may be severe and then less and then maybe not attack for awhile.
But it never reallys quits. CIPD seems a lot more like MS.

I seriously recommend getting Dr Parry’s book.

Good luck and take of yourself while caring for your father.
