Travis Stork: So, we are back with Nancy Davis who is doing such exciting work with MS and I want to you to talk to us about some of the exciting research that is really on horizon and you mentioned a lot is so close. But you want to tell about one thing in particular today. Nancy Davis: Vitamin D, it is such an easy obvious thing. We all used to go out and sit in the sun and we all got a natural amount of vitamin D in our bodies. Everybody is inside, if they are outside, they have sunscreen on. People's vitamin D levels have been shrunk so much. Almost every single patient is diagnosed with MS. They are finding if their levels of vitamin D are so depleted. By simply giving people a large dose of vitamin D and this is like a 4000 mg dosage. One should have a blood test and figure out just how deficient they are, of course this does not pertain to everybody. There are finding that so many people symptoms with MS being treated just on taking vitamin everyday or going away which is just amazing and this works with children with MS as well. Travis Stork: This is great thing. Nancy Davis: When one goes to the store and buys vitamin D in your normal drug store. The dosages usual about 40 mg. If you go to a special vitamin store, you can find the ones that are 1000, 2000, 4000 mg and it is really that kind of mg that really makes the difference. Travis Stork: So, certainly, for people who had been diagnosed with MS, this is such an exciting area of researching. I think it also gets back we talked about the sun we are so fearful and we talked about UV light before, you know the sun is not inherently an evil thing, it is why we are on this earth and getting 10 minutes a day of sunlight on your arms and may be your legs without sunscreen will help get you that adequate vitamin D and this research is so very important and we want to thank Nancy for all. Nancy Davis: Also our doctors feel that if everybody would go outside two times a week for 20 minutes, just let arm show up with no sunscreen, not going to get wrinkles there. You can get enough vitamin D that is all your body needs. If you can at least do that twice a week without sunscreen, just be outdoors, take a walk, have a great time that will give you the amount of vitamin D that you need to sustain yourself and it prevent the all kinds of disease. Drew Ordon: This is a great take on for everyone you know. Nancy, this is just one of many treatments, new treatments if they are looking out discovery, correct? Nancy Davis: We have so many different types of treatments. To me, this is such an obvious no brainer that everybody can do and this translates into so many other diseases besides them as we all need more vitamin D and we have really exciting other research studies going on and some other medicines coming to the pipeline and we really believe are going to help people, in the future not suffer from the symptoms of MS. However, we are so excited. We have such a brilliant team of doctors that works as a team. They are in a harder work right now and there is so many amazing things coming through the pipeline. When I was diagnosed about 19 years ago with MS, there was no known cause, no care and no drugs in the market, very little help or anything, anybody could tell me that I should do to be okay. They said just go home and go to bed. Your life is basically over and for that person being diagnosed today, there is so much help. It is so exciting, there is so much happening. It is hard to assimilate all the information, but we are trying to get there as fast as we can by having - happy trace and that is helping us raise money and the public awareness about it. Male speaker: Thanks for all that you do.
