You should watch this movie.  It is a true story about some parents who try and find a way to save thier son from a rare nerve disease called ALD.   ALD attacks the myelin sheath.   The doctors said he would become a vegetable and eventally die. So the parents research and find this oil that actually starts to help thier son improve and he is still alive.  It is an amazing story.  You should know it is a sad story, you might need some tissues. 
It is also interesting to look at the research on lorenzo's oil and how it might benefit us because our myelin sheaths are also being attacked. MS is different from ALS but both diseases still attack the myelin sheaths so this oil might help us.  I have been looking at the net and reading up on it. So far I find the www.myelin.org quite interesting it was started the boy's parent.  Has a lot of information on lorenzo's oil and also MS.  It is a research site and some of it is quite technical.  But if you have time to read there is some good information. 
Anyways I was just wondering if anyone researched this oil.  And if anyone ones knows any other sites about this oil please share because I find it quite interesting.

Hey Annita!

WOW...interesting!! I haven't heard of this, but will be checking the link u gave us. Thanks so much!! It doesn seem to make sense that if this oil works for ALS then it'd also work for MS. Thanks again for this!

I saw Lorenzo's Oil years ago when it came out. It's an amazing story, definitely worth a watch!

Makes me wonder, though, if anyone out there has thought to research if this oil helps with MS. I'll be reading through that site more. Thanks!
