Q: My son was sadly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) when he was 26 years old – he is now 40. Every time he has had a severe attack the neurosurgeons have given him cortisone, which destroys your bones. In the last number of years he has broken and cracked bones whenever he has fallen. The doctor has said that he now has osteoporosis and has prescribed Protos. A couple of weeks ago he got severe pain in his jaw bone; his dentist said that he probably has neuralgia in his jaw. But, after having read about the side effects of bisphosphonates I have become extremely concerned. I would greatly appreciate your thoughts on this. Also, do you have a product he could use instead of Protos?I have read about the importance of vitamin D in your publication. This got me wondering if the lack of vitamin D had any relevance to MS. I know that with MS the myelin sheath around the nerve endings in the brain is destroyed and has nothing to do with bones but was just wondering. D.G.

Q: I’m a man in my early 30s and work long hours. I have a stressful job and come home after 7 pm every night. I make dinner and then just want to go to bed. I need my sleep but I either cannot fall asleep, or I wake up a couple of hours later, wide awake. I’ve tried sleeping medication, but that leaves me spaced out and groggy in the mornings. I don’t want to rely on sleep medication but I cannot function without sleep. Please recommend a good alternative remedy for insomnia. P.J.
