Hello my name is Michael and I have Muscular Dystrophy. The type I have is called Myotonia congenita, this effects the electrical synopsis in my muscular system. I consider myself lucky that it is not the wasting away of my muscular system,what happens is at any moment my legs may just become rigid parilized I can't move at all . This can happen to all of my extremities . The electrical signals just dont work. I'v waited sixty years for some kind of relief. Guess what? Marijuana some how relaxes my system to the point where it is so much better. Israel is the place to look for answers.

Hi Michael. Wonder if you can assist me. A friend of mine - her son of 9 has been diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Someone else said that she should contact the doctors in Israel. Do you have names and contacts of any doctors that she can contact in Israel? We are in South Africa. Bless you and I wish you healing.
