Jellyfish Takes Sting Away for MS Sufferer
This is an unsolicited testimonial; to ensure authenticity, Josh Sheldon gave permission for his full name and address be used. The report from this sufferer of multiple sclerosis gives reason for optimism from a most unusual source; a jellyfish.

Madison, Wisconsin, May 20, 2010 – There’s a statement many of us make from time to time, and while a cliché, is certainly true: If you have your health, you have everything. And yet because we’re human, we still complain about every little ache and pain. Then we hear about someone who truly has reason to be concerned — and we chide ourselves for whining.
Josh Sheldon, 54, who lives in Fremont, California, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 1998, and became one of the more than 300 thousand Americans who suffer from it. The disease hit him hard, both physically and mentally.
MS is as unpredictable as it is potentially debilitating, and for both those who study the disease and those diagnosed with it, it is difficult to tell what affects its aggressiveness or remission. Josh’s MS was from onset, uncompromising.
Acting on advice from a friend who was doing research into the intricacies of the disease, Josh began taking a health application that uses the protein from a specific type of jellyfish—and which was brought to the market in 2007 by a Madison, Wisconsin-based company called Quincy Bioscience. The focus of the product was and is on restoring calcium balance related to neurodegenerative disorders as well as destructive age-related mechanisms.
After only four weeks of taking the supplement, Josh felt a noticeable difference. “The neuropathy, the pain you get from MS, the pain that seems embedded in your skin that comes from irritated nerves, suddenly began to decline. Each day”, he added, “became more comfortable than the day before. My coordination was better, and I could walk my dogs in the neighborhood with little difficulty. No stumbling; no staggering. I’m still not graceful, but I’m walking—I’
Then, while driving to work one morning, “I noticed that I could actually feel my right hand, instead of that numb feeling you get when you’ve played in a snowball fight for too long.” At first Josh tried not to think about the changes taking place in his body, “not wanting to get too excited” if it was to be a fleeting thing. “But then I realized I was also able to button all the buttons on my shirt, and I haven’t been able to do that for the last 3 to 3 ½ years, at least.”
Josh’s story is just one among many who are using the jellyfish protein and reporting an improvement in their movement and pain.
For all of us who have spoken or thought the words “When you have your health, you have everything…” reading this account should reinforce how precious life is, and if something comes along that’s not only available to everyone, but alleviates suffering, has no known side-effects – and may restore health, it should be noted.
“I’m back to being my old self,” Josh claims. “I’m sleeping better and ready to go when my feet hit the floor each morning. It hasn’t been that way in a long time.”
