Inside a healthy body, signals from your brain and spinal column use a special insulation network made up of myelin.
This waxy-like substance covers the central nervous system highway, and ensures healthy communication to various areas of the body, but individuals diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) experience a degenerative demyelization process.
Classified as autoimmune, MS is a chronic, pro-inflammatory disease that attacks all areas of protective sheath. However, with the right combination of mitochondrial support, neurotransmitter testing, and high-nutrient eating plan, individuals with MS can finally begin to turn the tides on this cellular, self-destructive disease.
Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis
- Reduced sexual desire
- Blurred vision
- Weakness in the arm or legs
- Loss of coordination
- Concentration problems
- Chronic Pain
- Impairment of senses
- Bladder/bowel dysfunction
Multiple Sclerosis Root Causes
- Environment (heavy metal toxicity)
- Nutrient deficiencies (vitamin D)
- Infection (virus, bacteria)
Multiple Sclerosis Diet & Lifestyle Changes
- Eat organic, unrefined, low sugar foods. Normalizing insulin levels is an important step in maintaining nervous system health.
- Get lots of rest and establish healthy sleeping patterns.
- Avoid smoking, alcohol, and other illegal drug use.
- If you are not getting enough vitamin D and have not been tested, make sure your levels are optimized. Consider natural sunlight, vitamin D supplements, or safe tanning bed solutions.
- To get the right fatty acid balance, make sure you are getting enough healthy fats in your diet, such as organic, grass-fed meats, cheeses, fish, and butter. Avoid highly oxidized oils such as trans-fats, soy, canola, and corn oils, which lead to a build-up of inflammation, cellular disruption, and unwanted cardiac complications.
- Make sure you practice mercury-free lifestyle strategies. Metals, which cause central nervous system damage and are known neurotoxins, should be avoided at all costs. Certain foods, cosmetics, pesticides, environmental agents, and dental amalgams carry toxic side effects, which carry long-term health risks.
- As with most conventional drugs, costs run high, they rarely treat the root cause, and bring about nasty side effects. When it comes to MS treatment, try to go the natural route.
- As always, try to cut all sugar from your diet, which means no juices, processed foods, and carbohydrates. Limiting sugars reduces uric acid, which lowers levels of inflammation and prevents other autoimmune diseases from developing.
- Because excess iron can damage the endothelium, create free radical damage, and destroy DNA, its important to check for overload.
- Traumatic emotional events and autoimmune disease seem to go hand in hand, so its important to consider some form of stress relief or therapy management, such as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).
