Multiple Sclerosis

 

 

There are several types of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Most will only vary in the degree or extent it affects the Central Nervous System (CNS). The most frequent type of MS is Relapsing MS. People with Relapsing MS will experience periods of relapses followed by complete or partial recoveries. This type of MS affects 85% of all MS patients. 50% of these patients will eventually experience progressive MS with or without periods of recovery. There are other types of more aggressive, progressive MS which affects the other 15% of the MS patients.

 

Most researchers will agree that MS is an autoimmune disorder. Your immune system attacks your CNS, specifically, a fatty tissue of the CNS called myelin. Sometimes, in most severe cases the nerve fibers themselves will be affected, and not only the myelin.

 

Myelin helps nerve cells conduct electrical impulses and operate properly. The damage to the myelin causes the CNS to operate improperly and thus, the various MS symptoms, which include bladder and bowel dysfunction, cognitive dysfunction, vision problems, fatigue, walking difficulty, pain, numbness, dizziness, swallowing disorders, tremors and other symptoms.  Researchers have yet to agree as to what causes MS. Some will say it is genetic; some will point out environmental triggers. But what is for sure is that MS is an auto -immune disorder.

 

While most types of treatments only treat MS symptoms, others suppress the immune system, to try to avoid its attack over the CNS.

 

This was the disease that inspired my return to the academic world for an advanced degree in nutrition. A wealthy farmer was growing carrots for a soup company and had sprayed the fields for weeds.  Earlier in the day, he had sprayed his sheep for bugs.  Busy and aggressive in his work, he did not return to his home to shower but kept working away in the hot summer sun.  The chemicals absorbed and impacted the myelin sheath so that he was admitted to our local hospital totally paralyzed.  When his doctors said that he would die, the sister called the dietary department, gave me her credit card and asked that I call anywhere in the world to get whatever help was available.  After about $100.00 worth of phone calls we got him admitted to a hospital in Switzerland.  He was detoxified, ate all organic foods and came home to work as a stockbroker for the next 35 years.     You can find alternative treatment that goes directly to the heart of the problem. These modalities assist in regulating the immune system without the need of suppressing it.

 

Now we use lab work to assess nutritional status and find products that will deregulate the toxins that build up and attack the CNS. Once the attack on the CNS has stopped, the body itself can strive to rebuild the necessary myelin and restore the CNS on its own, thus treating the symptoms as well as the heart of the problem.

 

Many nutritional protocols used in Europe to treat MS in the past are now available in America.  The testing and a program which is right for the level of toxicity for you to build your immune system seems to be the best nutritional approach at the present time.
