|There are many reasons for this page. While there is
much information on Muscular Dystrophy on the Internet and
various other places. I wanted to provide a place where
much of that information could be located easily.
Let me make it perfectly clear that I am neither a doctor or any other
type of health care professional. My only
knowledge comes from the fact that I have a form of MD
called Friedrich's Ataxia. I have spent some time
looking for information and possible treatments which I
will share with anyone here.
I invite anyone to share any knowledge they may have
with visitors to this site. Simply email me
If you read as much as I have from the conventional
medical field you tend to lose hope of a treatment or
My feelings are do as much as you can. I never accept
what the doctors tell me and I do things they say I
can't do. My younger brother never let his condition
stop him as long as he could keep going he did and
attempted things even I didn't consider.
Do you have a poem or story? Send
I'm afraid there was no way to make this short as there
is lots of information here. Some may apply to many
people and some only to me. I have to make another point
here...I use homeopathic remedies, some people have a
very difficult time accepting that and if you are one of
the people are unwilling to consider them I would
suggest that you not even read any further.
I asked the homeopath one day who is helping me what
advice I could give people with one of the forms of MD?
His answer was "Get to a good
homeopath as soon as possible"
