A note about Natural Treatments for Multiple Sclerosis
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Sometimes, it seems like it responds to everything you do and you go into remission, only to have symptoms come roaring back, and often they are worse than ever. Its then back to the treatment drawing board and trial and error for many people.
New research shows that there are new, natural treatments for multiple sclerosis that can be really beneficial to many people.
Food, Diet and Nutrition
While there is not a specific diet that can actually be used to overcome MS, it is thought that people who consume lots of saturated fats and do not get enough vitamin B12 or vitamin D may be at higher risk.
In addition to these vitamins, people who suffer from multiple sclerosis should make sure to eat an overall very healthy diet in an effort to keep their immune systems strong. A healthy immune system, combined with exercise and other healthy living strategies, would help to combat MS flare ups, and is definitely an important part of effective treatments for multiple sclerosis.
Look for foods that offer lots of nutrition, for example organic fruits and vegetables, and consider increasing your polyunsaturated fatty acid intake. Such essential fatty acids can be found in fish and certain seeds and vegetable oils; flaxseed oil is one good choice. Cut way back on fatty red and white meats and foods like butter, whole milk and high fat cheeses.
Consider getting more vitamin D. Recent studies have shown that women who had the highest amounts of vitamin D in their systems were 40% less likely to suffer from multiple sclerosis. While vitamin D may not cure your MS if you have it, it is certainly beneficial to your symptoms and condition, and should form a core part of good treatments for multiple sclerosis.
By far the best way to obtain your supply of vitamin D is to expose your bare skin to sunlight, allowing your body to produce the vitamin. Of course, sunburn can be harmful to health, so be sure to carry this out sensibly, starting with low periods of sun exposure.
Alternative Treatments for Multiple Sclerosis
There are certain natural therapies which could come in useful, too, as part of holistic treatments for multiple sclerosis.
Incorporate some yoga or tai chi into your daily routine for stress reduction and to help keep your body strong and limber. Sometimes, when you are suffering from an MS flare up, it might feel nearly impossible to move, but when youre working to fluidly move your body and keep your muscles strong, you can actually help to ease some of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis that you may be experiencing.
Acupuncture has been found to help some patients with MS. This type of treatment may be able to help with issues like muscle pain, spasms and bladder control problems that can sometimes accompany the disease.
Many people who are suffering with MS also get a weekly massage, as it can help to relieve tension and stress, which can cause symptoms to worsen. Massage can also help to fight depression, which can also bring out the symptoms of MS.
Evening primrose oil contains linoleic acid, which may be helpful in treating multiple sclerosis.
Studies have found that using proteolytic enzyme therapy has been very helpful in fighting inflammation that might occur with the disease. With Multiple Sclerosis, the protective covering on the nerves is broken down by the immune system. Proteolytic enzymes actually work to break down the immune complexes. This treatment has been found to greatly reduce the flare ups that can occur with MS.
The bottom line is that there are natural treatments for multiple sclerosis out there that can be just as effective as conventional treatments. You should look into them, but you need to bear in mind that any alternative or natural treatment works best when used as part of a whole body approach.
Certainly, to effect true healing, the environmental and lifestyle factors which caused the disease to develop in the first place would have to be addressed and reversed.
