Traditionally – multiple sclerosis (MS) has been (and still is) treated with medicines prescribed by the doctor (the conventional thinker [ science shows us that these medicines work?) (so I’m obliged to recommend approaching them ]), such as: antibody therapy, steroids, beta interferon and synthetic myelin proteins, etc. to help contain the number of attacks that a patient may have.
However, along with many of these modern-day medicines, there comes a rather nasty array of unwanted and potentially dangerous side effects to help the patient feel worse than they had been prescribed before. Consequently, prescriptions are given only when they are considered really necessary and in the patient’s best interests. Because of this, many sufferers tend to feel that the disease may be better left untreated.
Alternative options for many people suffering from multiple sclerosis:
1. Diet–is one of the options that has shown some success in treating multiple sclerosis; although some degree of skepticism still lingers around such claims (mainly on the part of non-believers[ doctors, scientists, large pharmaceutical companies, science lovers, etc.]). Although a healthy recommended diet may include: gluten-free, low-fat (unsaturated linolenic acid is permitted), saccharose-free, plenty of vitamins-B12, C, and D etc.
Other dietary supplements could include:
(A) Omega 3 capsular fatty acids or fish consumption (anti-oxidant properties help prevent further damage to brain and cell tissues).
(B) Linseed oil-also high in fatty acids of omega 3. Flaxseed is also abundant in lignans (a chemical compound found in plants acting as an antioxidant) that help to develop brain cells by helping them stay strong and healthy.
(C) Oats (Avena)-are high in calcium that not only helps the nervous system stay strong and healthy, but also helps relax the nerves and muscles.
(D) Beetroot-is thought to have a high content of folic acid and antioxidant properties that help regenerate body cells.
