Since the publication of my article "Multiple Sclerosis Treated with Injectable Vitamin B1 and Liver Extract" in the TLfDP in the Feb/March 2000 issue, I have received hundreds of calls from doctors and patients wanting more information on this safe, effective, and inexpensive treatment which reverses and cures Multiple Sclerosis.

Dr. F.R. Klenner's medical paper was published in the June and July 2000 edition of the TLfDP. Dr. H.T.R. Mount's medical paper on the successful treatment of MS with vitamin B1 and liver extract was also published in the Feb/March 2000 issue of the TLfDP. It is interesting to note these two MDs were treating MS in the 1940s and '50s with the same two essential ingredients — injectable B1 and liver extract, yet they were unaware of each other. Dr. Klenner in Reidsville, North Carolina and Dr. Mount in Ottawa, Ontario. Dr. Mount felt paralysis was a contraindication to his type of therapy, whereas Dr. Klenner was treating MS patients with paralysis intensively and successfully with vitamins A, C, E and all of the B vitamins and other metabolites in addition to the vitamin B1 and liver extract injections.

As many readers know, we had serious problems from 1998 on as the FDA Pharmaceutical monolith attempted to stop this treatment by refusing to allow the release of vitamin injectables and liver extract from the large labs producing them, which were under FDA control. It was a desperate situation for us and we survived by importing them from Mexico where these injectables are available without a prescription. Compounding pharmacies in the US began to produce the vitamin B1 injectables in 2000. They were able to do this because compounding pharmacies are under State control. The FDA went to court in January 2001 in New York and attempted to gain control of compounding pharmacies and they were denied that right. These pharmacies then began to produce Liver Extract also and we were assured of a reliable source of supply.

There are currently two pharmacies producing B1, 200mg per ml. and liver extract with two more coming on line, one in Canada and one in the US. With increasing numbers of patients becoming aware of this treatment, the demand will increase.

Dr. Klenner believed MS to have a viral cause. With a degree in Biochemistry he was able to understand what was happening in MS. The virus damaged the cells of the central nervous system rendering them incapable of maintaining homeostasis or normal metabolism by retaining adequate B1 within the cells, resulting in a deterioration of the myelin sheath surrounding the nerve and eventual paralysis. By raising the level of B1 in the body with a daily injection, a level could be maintained allowing normal metabolism to be continued, resulting in myelin sheath regeneration and recovery. In reality, MS is a deficiency disease caused by a viral inflammation of the central nervous system which can be reversed with adequate B1 and liver extract injections. Recovery can be enhanced with the addition of vitamins A, C, E, and B-complex and other metabolites in addition to a healthful diet and lifestyle.

I have followed this protocol for over 25 years. Following two severe attacks of MS in 1973 I could walk only a short distance and was forced to discontinue working — my doctors said I would be in a wheelchair soon. After beginning treatment with Dr. Klenner I was able to return to work within 6 months — but it was two years before I became symptom-free. I have enjoyed excellent health since.

The protocol of Dr. Klenner's I have followed consists of: (1) a daily intramuscular injection of vitamin B1 of 300 to 400 mg. The correct dosage can be determined by the level of fatigue the patient experiences. Some patients require 300 to 400 mg daily to experience relief of fatigue symptoms. The B1 is available in a strength of 200mg per ml. So a 200 mg injection would be 1cc. Twice weekly 1cc of liver extract is added to the B1 injection so extra injections aren't needed. The B1 injectable comes in a 30cc bottle and lasts for two to four weeks. The liver extract comes in a 10cc vial and lasts 5 weeks. The syringe is a 25 gauge by five-eighths inch 3cc syringe.

Note: B1 is not well absorbed in oral form — the daily injection is required for life for successful treatment and recovery.

Oral Vitamin Regimen
1. 5 grams daily in divided doses of Calcium Ascorbate (buffered Vitamin C) which is available in 500mg tablets. This boosts the immune system and eliminates or shortens recovery time from colds and flu.
2. Vitamin E 400 to 1000 IU daily
3. B-100 tablet. This tablet contains 100mg of all of the B vitamins.
4. B12 — One tablet (sublingual — dissolved under the tongue) daily. One to 2mg strength.
5. Niacin. Once or twice weekly, 100 to 300mg before breakfast. This is a vasodilator and opens the blood vessels allowing the nutrients to rebuild the myelin sheath damaged by MS. This will produce a flush and reddening of the skin for about 30 minutes, which most patients say they enjoy. It is advisable to lie down and cover up for the period of the flush.

A high protein diet is required to rebuild the myelin sheath. Examples: Breakfast — 1 or 2 eggs poached, with fruit and cereal. Lunch — fish and vegetables (steamed) and fruit. Supper — chicken or beef with vegetables and fruit. Soy, cheese and dairy products are a good source of protein if well tolerated.

One 500mg digestive enzyme tablet taken with each meal can often improve digestion and absorption.

Injectables are presently available at two compounding pharmacies with a prescription and are shipped to Canada and all parts of the US: Optioncare Pharmacy, Aurora, Illinois — 630-859-0333 or 800-679-4667; College Pharmacy, Colorado Springs, Colorado — 800-888-9358. Prices at last quote: Thiamine 200mg per ml. 30cc $15.00; Liver Extract 10cc $25.00.
