MS as well as Firbromyalgia is often caused by Lyme and co-infections. I would suggest your friend be tested for Lyme using the IgeneX Western Blot test. (NOT THE ELISA - which is useless). If it is Lyme, then the friend can combine and target treatments more precisely. Lyme is typically not a stand alone disease, which is why combo treatments are often more effective than Rife alone.
