Living Proof Documentary soon available to view in the US

Living Proof is a documentary featuring Matt Embry’s successful example of having MS while experiencing a normal, healthy life due to diet, exercise and supplements. The documentary is also an expose on pharmaceutical companies and the MS Society. I saw the documentary twice when it debuted here in Calgary at the film festival. It was excellent and won best Alberta feature. All three of its Calgary showings sold out.

I copied Matt Embry’s Facebook announcement with the comments because there are answers in the comments to questions asked. I thought it easiest to copy and paste, less chance of mistaken information.

Note: At the end of this blog is an update from Direct-MS about the documentary Living Proof and new MS research. Be sure to click to the whole blog article and scroll down to read their letter.

Alright, I’m in a slightly better mood today. What I mean by that is that I was frustrated with having to leave level III. I’m worried about back tracking and I am worried about gaining weight. The point of all of this is not about losing weight, however it has been a side effect, a nice side effect. I lost weight when I was on levels I and II also, so I don’t know what I’m worried about. The cost is relatively the same for all levels, it is the lack of flexibility for level III that is the biggest problem. The last two weeks of the month is a financially lean time for me. It requires me to be very creative with what I have on hand. The problem with level III is that the food list is very limited. If I run out of this or that, it leaves me without enough nutrients to keep me out of the Ketosis flu, not pleasant. If I have something I shouldn’t then it kicks me out of Ketosis causing me to readjust again when I get back in ketosis, again the ketosis flu, not pleasant. I have been mostly in ketosis, but I am tired half the time, which means not enough nutrients. This is why I made the decision, for now to go back to level II. If I don’t get the right combination of foods because I simply don’t have them, I won’t be sick and I won’t be tired. Then, when really down with money, I can get by with what is on hand with less consequences. When I am in a better position financially, I’ll definitely revisit level III. And if I find that I regress at all in my healing, then I’ll get right back on level III and figure out a way to make it happen.

Today was the United State’s Thanksgiving Day. Always a weird day for me here in Canada. It is my favorite holiday, because its simply about dinner with family and being grateful for each other. That’s how it is in my family, I realize coming from Massachusetts where the pilgrims landed that its about that and then we can add the politics and controversy. But, I am going to keep it very small, it was simply a wonderful day with my family and I miss that and I miss them.

I had an email from Direct-MS today. I will copy and paste here the whole letter, its not super long and has a lot of information of interest to those of us with MS and their families.

The letter:

We would like to thank you for your continued support and to let you know what has been happening with DIRECT- MS over the past year.

 This year our main focus has been on supporting my son’s production of a documentary which examines the challenges of living with MS, and various issues regarding multiple sclerosis therapies, from drugs to diet to CCSVI. The documentary, called Living Proof, was shown at the Toronto and Calgary International Film Festivals and was very well received. It will be publicly available early in 2018 and we will let everyone know how to access it.

 In terms of research, we are currently funding a research project which examines the value of a multi-ingredient supplement for preventing and treating MS in laboratory animals. The first results from this work have been extremely positive and the work will be completed in the first half of 2018. The long-term plan is to organize and fund a Phase I/II clinical trial which tests the effectiveness of the supplement for persons with MS.

 We are currently overhauling our website so that it can be accessed on all platforms from computers to cell phones and is easy to navigate. This work should be completed by year’s end.

Thank you very much for your ongoing and generous support for our efforts which have allowed us to provide persons with MS with reliable, science-based information and to fund highly relevant, research projects. Donating to Direct-MS can be done either through our website by accessing the Donate page under the Home tab or by sending a cheque to Direct-MS, 5119 Brockington Rd NW, Calgary, AB, Canada, T2L 1R7. A receipt for tax purposes will be issued promptly for both Canada and the USA. 95% of all donations goes to charitable purposes. Please do not hesitate to contact us by email (info@direct-ms.org ), phone, or letter if you have any questions.

 All the best, 

 

Ashton Embry

President and Research Director

I looked online in a brief search about this supplement research and could find nothing relevant. However, I do trust this source. They are right here in Calgary and they are above board ethically.

Living Proof is now an award winning documentary

“Matt Embry a TV/film producer with MS has a new documentary on his journey with the disease that picked up best Alberta feature at the Calgary International Film Festival.” All three of its screenings were sold out. Which is good news, because this will give the documentary strength behind its progression to a mainstream audience.

Okay, onto my day. I have my first physio tomorrow at 11:30 for an assessment of my atrophied muscles that I will learn to treat with my electric muscle stimulation machine (e-stim). Its been a while to get this important part of the Wahls journey into place.

Note: Symptoms page is updated for last month. As such, tonight’s blog is short and sweet, if not a little disjointed. I promise to write a better one tomorrow. My mid back is screaming at me to stop. So, stop I will.

Found a new local resource!

We found a wonderful nature store in Calgary called Bowness Health Food. Fairly large store which is mostly supplements. Prices are not too bad, some are high. Need to research pricing online before going and then compare. I don’t mind spending $5 more to support a local store and save on shipping and have local convenience. Its a problem when its $20 more. For example, I was gifted Organika Bone Broth Protein Powder by a friend (Thank You!), which sells at the Bowness Health Food $3.00 less than online at The Canadian Vitamin Shop. On the other hand, a bottle of D3 drops, 500 ml was selling for $36.00, common price is $18 at online sources. I did not have the time to look at all their D3 drop brands today, there may be one at a better price. I did buy a Kombucha drink they had there that came in a small can called Kombucha Wonder Drink Sparkling Fermented Tea that was to die for and sold for just $2.49 8.4 fl. oz or 250 ml. I will go back for more of those. Anyway, love this new found (for me) gem. I am looking forward to exploring more. For one thing, they sell Bulletproof Coffee and Brain Octane Oil. I walked around thinking, “They have everything.” I’m like a kid. Of course I have a budget and must buy the most important elements first, then consider things like Bulletproof Coffee.

Going to see the last showing of Living Proof tonight with friends. I saw it a few days ago with a group. I am accompanying a friend, which then turned to three, maybe four. This is something I want to support. Well done biopic/expose. Should you choose to attend it is showing at the Globe Cinema at 9:30 pm. Tickets are still available online and at the Cinema if they don’t sell out first. https://www.calgaryfilm.com/films/2017/living-proof

Life is good, most especially walking freely without my cane, that’s good.

Living Proof Toronto International Film Festival Premier

Matt Embry’s Living Proof documentary premiered tonight to the public at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) scheduled at 6:45 pm Eastern time (4:45 pm Mountain time). Below is an interview with Embry at the TIFF tonight before the documentary aired. I weigh a lot of importance on this documentary because I know first hand what this man has done for MS in terms of others and himself. Matt Embry’s profession is film producer. He has made several documentary’s about others, but this is his first with his own journey with MS and his personal quest to answer the seemingly unanswerable regarding the lack of momentum for a cure for not just ms, but all autoimmune illnesses, within the medical industry and major charities and discusses what is moving in that direction. He has traveled the world to interview pockets of success for managing MS. I am anxious to see this documentary.

I’ve said it before that if it weren’t for Matt and his father Dr. Ashton Embry, I wouldn’t know that the Protocol, which is doing such wonders for me, exists. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you Matt. I know from the online forums that I frequent for support on my quest, the afflicted and their families all over the world are waiting anxiously to see Living Proof. Embry explains in the interview below that plans are in the works to distribute Living Proof world wide. I am blessed and lucky to be living in the same city as the Embry’s and have my ticket for one of the two showings at the Calgary Film Festival later this month.
