Siddharthan Chandran: Can the damaged brain repair itself?
People wih autoimmune diseases like MS have an endocannabinoid deficiency. Perhaps by stimulating this system, with natural cannabinoids, the body's antibodies would function properly and stop attacking it's own myelin, therefore making it easier to bring that red line closer to the blue line? Much like looking at stem cells' ability to repair we can try to stimulate the endocannabinoid system, as well.

Siddharthan Chandran: Can the damaged brain repair itself?
I am a 51 y/o female diagnosed with MS... this is the first real hope I've felt. Finally a solution to the problem as opposed to a bandage disguised as an expensive drug that only slows down disease progression. Which in a progressive debilitating diisease is just postponing the inevitable. Sorry, just my Buddhist view of reality! Thank you! Sometimes I feel that my own research has been more focused on a solution to the problem. If more scientists were concerned with real solutions instead of the newest money making drug there might be a lot less suffering

Daniel Goleman: Why aren't we more compassionate?
I think this talk may come as a rude awakening to many. Practicing mindfulness in our daily lives and routines can make us more present and perceptive, we can teach ourselves to slow down...and when that happens compassion comes naturally. My belief is that compassion is ingrained in us all. As Goleman pointed out, in his brother-in-laws interview with the genius seriel killer, he selectively turned "that side" of himself off. I think many us do the same on our own levels. And by being mindful we can monitor that "switch".

What impact has meditation had on your life?
Having Multiple Sclerosis and living in a stressful environment led me to Buddhism and the practice of mindfulness and meditation. I found that it has changed my life. I am no longer a source of my personal suffering and neither is MS. Meditation on compassion and altruism focus my mind on the suffering of others and not on myself.
