Natural Supplements for those with Multiple Sclerosis

It is a general observation that people are generally not paying attention to the sources of their health problems not until their health get worse and their condition cannot be remedied anymore. For instance, in the case of Multiple Sclerosis, patients start doing something about their health at the onset of the disease, and not cognizant of certain symptoms. Sometimes, the opportunity to prevent a particular disease may not be possible anymore.

It is an interesting discovery on my part when I read about the discovery that the root cause of Multiple Sclerosis is the modern lifestyle of a person. The way modern life takes place is a conglomerate of toxic food choices, acids, sugars, carbs, and excessive fats and uric acid. All these are directed into the bloodstream. When this happens, more life-threatening problems may possibly occur. Having MS for quite some time, I am enthusiastic to share about how I have
started finding natural remedies to help me cope with Multiple Sclerosis. I will be sharing some of the natural supplements as alternative solution to my fight against such disease.

What is Multiple Sclerosis?

A lot of people do not exactly know what Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is all about. It is defined by many medical practitioners as a disease of autoimmunity and inflammation that is characterized by the destruction of the myelin sheath that insulates and protects neurons. It is said that when it attacks a patient, an attack or episode of increased disease activity results to an impaired communication of the neurons that can manifest a variety of symptoms, which may have an effect on sensory processing, locomotion, and even cognition.

The known cause of MS remains to be disputed even up to this time. Many over the counter drugs promise treatment for such disease but now many natural remedies offer many of the ways on how an MS patient can overcome the disease.

Is Multiple Sclerosis Geographically Bound?

A lot of literature on MS point to the higher incidence of the disease in the West. Surprisingly, underdeveloped countries have less or absence of the occurrence of MS. Medical practitioners have been debating on why this is so. Studies have shown that the disease is most predominant in temperate latitudes. It is also prevalent in countries like North America, Australia, and New Zealand. It is also found in Canada, and the USA. In countries like China, Japan, and other Asian countries, the occurrence of MS remains to be rare. Even up to this time, medical practitioners are trying to find answers to such a question.

What Natural Remedies can Help People with Multiple Sclerosis?

Going natural has been the trend nowadays. In fact, mainstream medicine has not acknowledged the role of natural remedies in the effect of the same to many of human diseases. Vitamin D for one has been proven potent in the immune system works in most MS patients. A lot of studies point to the continued benefit that can be derived in the individual’s exposure to sunlight to get a holistic dosage of vitamin D. Studies also show that blood vessels with higher vitamin D are less likely to develop MS. Likewise, it was ascertained that MS occur less frequently during the highest exposure to sunlight especially at summer time.

Another natural supplement is diet rich in fish products. Food that is abundant with vitamin D 3 and omega-3 fish oils as well as cod liver are good products to ward MS. My personal experience proved that cod liver made a difference in my life. As a food supplement which I eat at least once a week, I haven’t had cold or flu in 14 years. Another natural supplement that I also take once in a while is Calcium Magnesium, like the cod liver; it has positive effects in my body. It is a magnificent natural and alternative solution to me as an MS patient. Why not try it too?
