Lost in the jungle of therapies ? – My story on NRK TV

Click this link: http://tv.nrk.no/serie/puls/mdhp12000614/03-02-2014#t=0s “Nothing we have done has slowed progression”, says Dr. Stanley Fahn in this mini documentary on “Puls”,  Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation´s weekly health and lifestyle program, which drew a large audience on feb 3. 688000 people, or a total of 45 % of the television audience at that time of the evening, watched me as I struggle to find ways to…….yes……excactly…..”slow the progression”.  So why do I even try ? What is it like to be a so called “modern patient” ?  On the one hand little or nothing  is proved to be working. On the other hand is a jungle of therapies as large as the Amazon rainforest. What do you do ? Nothing ? Anything ?
