Now, that research has paved the way for a beer that seeks to unlock our creative potential, sip by sip. The beer, engineered by Danish communications firm CP+B and brewed by Copenhagen-based microwbrewery Rocket Brewing Company, is called The Problem Solver. It's described as a fruity, hoppy, IPA. Its 75-centiliter bottle has hash marks running up its side, telling you exactly how much to drink based on your weight. It’s not an exact science because of the variance in our respective alcohol tolerances and dehydration levels. And then there’s the problem of actually stopping when you get to your appointed hash mark. But let's back up a step.

Nutritional Therapy Successfully Used To Reverse MS. By Katherine Leonard MS, NC Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, degenerative disease of the nerves in the brain and spine.

When the myelin is damaged, the function of the nerves deteriorate, resulting in muscle weakness, imbalance or loss of coordination, vision loss, and tremors. Research is now showing that the disease can be reversed by adopting a paleolithic diet (primarily meat, veggies, and nuts), optimizing vitamin D levels, and avoiding artificial ingredients, especially aspartame.It is now understood that environmental factors, especially diet, play a large role in the development of this degenerative disease.
