I am a man with Multiple Sclerosis. I highly recommend the benefots of Novantrone Chemotherapy treatments. After nearly 12 years lost sight in my left eye the Novantrone has returned about 20% vision after only two treatments. The downsides are a nausea that resembles feeling 'bloated', general fatigue and the fact that it is a three year long cycled treatment. The upside is an 82% total remission rate (No more lesions AT ALL!)

I'm not sure how a person can get Coca leaves legally here in the U.S. but Novantrone is available at most cancer treatment centers. Novantrone will likely put the disease into ful remission. Then again, it's always fun to get high if you can too. *Shrug*
