Anyone thought about whether Fluoride effects, or triggered, their MS? I’m currently doing an experiment where I’m trying to cut down on the amount of fluoride I consume by drinking fluoride-free bottled water. Loads of products these days contain it, not just toothpaste and drinking water, but most brands of bottled water has it and so does some medications, eg. Prozac. The list seems to go on and on.
I read that fluoride has long been known to effect transmission of nerve signals and is associated with memory problems like Alzheimers. I’ve not found anything to connect it with MS, but if you have a condition to do with transmission of nerve signals then by my recconning, Flouride isn’t going to help. Just a thought.
I started with MS symptoms in 2000. I was pregnant with my first child at the time so it’s always been attributed to the stress my body was under at the time, but we moved to our current house at the start of 2000 - which I now know has fluoridated water - and before that I lived for 8 months in an area which also has fluoridated water, however, I’d been visiting that property since 1997. The effects of fluoride are cumulative.
Given the world we live in today, I don’t think I can cut Fluoride out completely, but it’ll certainly be interesting to see if I have any improvement by reducing it.
