New clinical trials show evidence an immunosuppressive therapy combined with the transplant of a persons own stem cells can help trigger remission in multiple sclerosis. This autoimmune disease attacks the bodies central nervous system. In a trial 69 percent of the patients had no progression of the disability, new brain lesions or a relapse. The participants did not use any MS medications after the trial since some studies have shown the current MS drugs have a lower rate of success. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases sponsored the trial which was called HALT-MS.
The symptoms of MS vary and can include difficulties with speech and motor capabilities, fatigue, weakness and chronic pain. Relapse remitting MS is the most common type and characterized with periods where the symptoms are mild or nonexistent. These periods are interspersed with relapses and reoccurrences of the symptoms. Over time the disease can become worse and shift into progressive MS.
During HALT-MS the researchers conducted tests regarding the efficacy, safety and durability of the treatment. There were 24 volunteers who were experiencing severe relapses, neurological disabilities and inflammation despite the MS drugs they were taking. The treatment removes cells that cause disease and resets the bodies immune system. Chemotherapy is used to deplete the patients immune system then it is rebuilt using their stem cells. There are some risks and possible side effects to this treatment.

Kabbalah Centre was founded in 1992 by Rav Yehuda Ashlag. Rav was the first master dedicated and strived to make the guarded wisdom accessible. He published detailed information of Kabbalah wisdom to enlighten his student Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein who also handed it down the lineage to Rav Berg, and this is how Kabbalah Centre evolved.
The Kabbalah wisdom was revealed thousands of years ago. The concealed knowledge included the design of the whole universe both seen and unseen. Kabbalah is therefore popularly known as the Jewish Mysticism or secret wisdom. Back then, the knowledge was handed down the line through word of mouth and to only married men who were above 40 years. Generally the Jewish community did not approve of kabbalah’s widespread dissemination.
It was hard for the young generation to access the written materials since the books and the manuscripts were scarce and unaffordable at the time. Nevertheless, some of the Kabbalah believers felt that the secret wisdom should be widely spread and shared even by other believers outside Jewish religion. However, Kabbalah was never taught to women, children or illiterate men due to speculation that they were unfit or could not comprehend the manifold wisdom of Kabbalah.
In the 18th century, the Kabbalists and rabbis made it more complicated to access the information and prohibited unsupervised access to the manuscripts and books. Despite the efforts of print media publishing a lot of copies for distributions, a good number of rabbis and Kabbalists preferred to keep the secret wisdom in handwritten materials to avoid printing errors or misinterpretations. To an extent, some of the teachings were deliberately left in worded codes and cryptic allowing only the informed with the wisdom decipher the hidden contents.
Kabbalah Centre was primarily hidden from public since it contained knowledge about God and was only explicitly revealed in Torah. Kabbalistic is mostly the fundamental aspects of God rather than the outer perception. The book of Zohar is the core document that contains and provides all the details and information about secret wisdom of Kabbalah.
