In concert with Wednesday’s post on unusual treatments for MS, I thought I would end with the most unusual, and expensive.
After doing the research for Wednesday’s post I realized that I had been getting some SPAM from Esperanza about their product. Scanning through the blah, blah, blah in the email testimonials apparently Esperanza makes a homeopathic therapy for Multiple Sclerosis (I have no idea on why I didn’t notice them on my original searches for MS homeopathy). For $10,000 + travel expenses you too can have some “special” saline (it is water that was next to water that was next to water …. that was near cobra venom? Water memory) to spray under your tongue; and even then in isn’t a cure! I guess in all fairness the Rebif comes out to more than this, but insurance covers the Rebif; and I don’t have to travel to get tested. IMHO, homeopathy is the archetype of quackery. I guess on the plus side memory water won’t hurt you.
Here are PDF’s of the SPAM emails they sent me. I didn’t bother to check the references they are citing (pictures of publications) since homeopathy is way too far out there for me to take seriously. The only reason I am posting them is because homeopathy is so bizarre to me. They are certainly testimonial centric emails, which translates in my brain to “blah,blah,blah.” On a “positive” note glyconutrients/Ambrotose and LDN are looking more appealing by the day! 😉
