Default Spingolin ?????

Hi everyone , has anyone tried Spingolin myelin sheath extract ? Available online without a prescription. Supposedly helps in the repair the Myelin Sheath. It's derived from Australian cattle. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Jim

Hi, I'm in my 2nd month on Sphingolin and Inosine for nerve damage from hip replacement...my whole thigh is numb going into 5th year post op, but since on these two the burn/tingle is about gone. A naturopath put me on to these....they've worked for me.

Some here talked about concern about the cattle, but that does not concern me.

Sphingolin was discussed on this thread. Look for the highlighted red.

Use Sphinoglin at your own risk. Read all you can about it...and see if you trust the makers to provide safe bovine sources.

I really don't think ANY bovine source is safe for nerve tissue in food or supplements. It can just be that the prions haven't been found yet in sources, claiming to be safe.

Not all prion information is available yet...it remains a very iffy problem.

While I respect everyone's wish to pursue any treatment or any form of relief, and I know how tempting it can be to try almost anything, I am also very skeptical when it comes to believing the cattle/bovine supply is safe.

Several "health centers" in a nearby city are prescribing all kinds of bovine organ and tissue extracts for their clients. I look at the bottles and the information on the manufacturers. I also look at the prices. The various bovine supplements these centers are providing are not high quality anything.

Very frightening.

I cringe at some of what these "health clinics" are doing. It's so absurd! So very disconcerting.

Just for example: An acquaintance of mine goes to one of these practitioners. On the same day my friend was told the health center's testing confirms "beef" is toxic to him, he was prescribed 3 different "bovine extracts" for ingestion 3x daily, for each bovine extract. This was not an attempt at some kind of "desensitization" to beef. When asked about this, the practitioner had replied that she knew of no other method/ source/approach. Utter nonsense.

I am not implying members on this thread are, in any way, duped.
I am relating the fact that some "health practitioners" (and some) clients show little to no concern for the sourcing of any supplements, including the use of bovine derivatives. Some companies and practitioners seem to lack some common sense, while others seem to be lacking in ethics.

Having grown up on a bovine farm, having visited the slaughterhouses -- I have seen some of the beef cattle brought to slaughter. Some look extremely ill.

Please be sure your sources are as pure and as safe as possible!

Many practioners have gone to "out of the conventional box" healing. I've worked with integrative MD's for many years and chiros too who work with Muscle Testing and work with Standard Process products. Many SP products contain animal glandulars etc. I've taken many of them over many years and even right now take Ligaplex II which contains several bovine extracts. SP has been around for more than 50 yrs, maybe close to 100 yrs and are in Wisconsin. Anyway,

I've completed 2 months on Sphingolin and a lot of the the burn/tingle on my thigh are gone. I'm going to stay off Sphingolin and see if the burn/tingle returns...but will stay with Inosine since I bought more of a supply.

I have more a "beef" with pharma drugs and the damage I and some loved ones have been thru. I won't get on that soapbox.

Maybe the burn will not return w/o Sphingolin, I'll find out. The Inosine label reads: Nerve Growth Factor.

These two were recommended by a naturopath.

Hi Caroline,

I'm laughing. Cute comment about your "beef with the pharma drugs."

I do understand. Been there, done that! Many times over.
We have to be careful no matter which path we take.

Glad you are seeing positive results!
Your experience is interesting to follow.
Hope it continues and you heal completely.

To Our Healing!

Mrsd, regarding the bovine comment. But don't we carry that risk anyway whenever we eat beef?

Mpiazza000, the short answer to your question is that it depends where you live/have lived.

In my case I lived in the UK when the BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy) story was unfolding and ate beef there.

Because of that I am not allowed to donate blood here. That is something which I accept though I lived in the UK more than two decades ago - the chances that I am infected with the BSE prion are extremely small.

I wonder about the quantitative risk:benefit analysis involved in this decision.
