Natural Alternative Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) causes destruction of myelin around nerve cells in the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. Myelin around nerve cells acts like the plastic insulation around electrical wires. If the insulation is damaged; the nerve signals are damaged and symptoms occur. This process of progressive damage is call "de-myelination."
In Multiple Sclerosis the body's own immune system mistakenly attacks the myelin-this is an "autoimmune" attack.
Common triggers include:
Viral, Bacterial, parasite infection
Environmental toxins such as chemicals and metals
Physical trauma and psychological stress
Symptoms of MS depend on what areas are being de-myelinated (attacked). Many persons have numbness, tingling, weakness, dizziness, vision problems, depression, difficulty sleeping, sensitivity to temperature changes, coordination and balance problems.
About 50% of all MS victims have difficulties with concentration, attention, memory, depression and poor judgement.
There is hope! It is possible to have a better life. These problems can be helped - but only if treated correctly by:
Removing and managing the triggers
Soothing and balancing the immune system
Strengthening the weak areas of the brain with appropriate fuel and activation of specific neural pathways
Our program offers a unique natural approach to improving function by addressing both the METABOLIC and NEUROLOGIC sides of the problem. We must start with a comprehensive neurological examination and blood work (including assessment of the immune system, thyroid, adrenal glands and much more).
Calming down your immune system is very important. Remember, your body is attacking itself. So, naturally, soothing your immune system is important. Glutathione, is a powerful antioxidant that we use to decrease inflammation. Beware…glutathione doesn't work when taken orally.
We also want to support your body by understanding what it needs to function best. This is different for every person. Functional analysis of your blood work will guide this process.
Finally, strengthening your brain and nervous system using Brain-Based Therapy (BBT) will give your nerves a chance to recover and become strong. (see other areas on this site for an explanation of BBT).
