After years on medications, my Multiple Sclerosis symptoms worsened with tremors on my right hand, numbness and tingling, muscle weakness and loss of speech. Fortunately last year, i learnt about ORGANIC HERBAL CLINIC and their Multiple Sclerosis alternative treatment ww w. organicherbalclinic. com, the treatment made a great difference for me, most of my symptoms including tremors, weakness and others gradually disappeared. I improved greatly over the 3 months MS treatment, its been a year since the treatment, i have no symptoms. I have a very good quality of life and a supportive family!
