GBS on NBC11 in SF Bay Area
AnonymousFebruary 28, 2007 at 1:39 pm
I’m sitting here getting my IVig tx and what do I hear on the news…another announcement about Anna Nicole? NO! a report on using adaptive technology to help GBS patients communicate with as little muscle movement as chin movement…and they pronounced it correctly.
Also, in a completely unrelated issue, anyone ever hear about Guillatab? the supposed natural “remedy” to GBS? (www.guillatab.com/)

Guillatab sounds like a classic scam. I’m surprised that they’re going after a relatively small group of people.
I say it’s a scam since it’s an over-the-counter treatment, and it’s not cheap. Although they have a 60-day money back guarantee, [quote=http://www.guillatab.com/about_tab.html]Treatment with Guillatab is very rapid obvious results can be noticed within 40 days of use. A complete course of treatment lasts three months. . . .Guillatab comes for a fixed price of $230 for a one month supply[/quote]
They list themselves as being in Scotland so you could try contacting them. But maybe you, or one of the other members who posts on the UK board, can post there for more info?

OK, so just for a laugh or to put the cat amongst the pigeons I emailed them, asking them for more info, asking about permanent nerve damage, sidp and cidp, saying Im worried about it because the FDA doesn not regulate natural or herbal meds etc, so I’m concerend it may not be effective blah blah blah. I know VERY well that this is a scam, just want to see if they will email me back.

Do I even need to respond, specially since they say that their treatments lasts 3 months ….. We all know that if it is GBS then the attack should not last longer than 4 weeks. [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2][quote][FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Guillatab is clinically proven to treat Guillain-Barre Syndrome successfully. You may download a summary of our clinical study in Adobe’s PDF format.[/SIZE][/FONT][/quote] [FONT=Verdana]Note the claim they make, and also they say their clinical study is available, just not true ….. once clicked on, it says it will be available soon. Just a little angry because of what I believe are blatently false statements.:mad: [/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT]

Alison, you’re being very naughty 🙂
I, too, was a little taken aback by the click-here-for-our-clinical-study/there-is-no-study ruse.
I’m curious if any of the UK boarders are familiar with this outfit. A “40% efficacy rate” suggests that they’ve duped at least five people. It’s quite sad really.
