Project Description

What is Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?

Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease where the bodys own immune system attacks the covering of the brain and spinal cord. This leads to the development of scar tissue which interferes with the central nervous systems ability to communicate with the rest of the body. Multiple Sclerosis is commonly categorized into 4 types based on the progression of the disease and the patterns of relapses and remissions.

What are the common signs and symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis?

  • Pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness, in the arms, legs, or trunk, usually affecting one side side at a time

  • Fatigue, dizziness, and loss of balance

  • Difficulty walking, problems with coordination, muscle spasms, and muscle paralysis

  • Blurred vision, double vision, or vision loss

  • Bladder, bowel, and sexual dysfunction

  • Memory and language problems, slurred speech

  • Depression

How is Multiple Sclerosis diagnosed?

  • Specific symptoms

  • MRI of the brain and spinal cord

  • MRI with contrast

  • Evaluation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)

  • Electroencephalogram (EEG)

       How is Multiple Sclerosis commonly treated?

  • Immune suppressing drugs are used in an attempt to prevent exacerbations and delay progression

  • Corticosteroids can be used to treat exacerbations

  • These drugs can have serious side effects including bone loss, cancer, and diabetes

Is Multiple Sclerosis a genetic disease? 

No, Multiple Sclerosis is not a genetic disease. There are certain gene variations that can increase a persons risk of developing an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis. However, it is important to remember that just because someone may have these gene variations does not mean that they will definitely develop Multiple Sclerosis. Important factors that affect “gene expression” play a significant role and are discussed below. Your genes are not your destiny.

What causes Multiple Sclerosis?

According to conventional american medicine the cause of Multiple Sclerosis and other auto-immune diseases is unknown. However, a careful analysis of the peer reviewed scientific literature reveals a number of important factors that can lead to the imbalanced and malfunctioning immune system seen in Multiple Sclerosis. It is these important factors listed below that will ultimately determine whether or not a person will develop an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis.

What are these important factors?

  • Vitamin D deficiency

  • Increased gastrointestinal  permeability (Leaky Gut)

  • Gastrointestinal microbial imbalances (bacteria, yeast, parasites, etc..)

  • Adrenal gland dysfunction (the adrenal gland regulates the immune system)

  • Environmental chemical exposure (pesticides, herbicides, industrial pollutants, etc..)

  • Toxic metal exposure (mercury, aluminum, arsenic, etc…)

  • Nutritional deficiencies

  • Over consumption of inflammatory or potentially antigenic food molecules (gluten, partially hydrogenated fats, omega 6 polyunsaturated fats, lectins, advanced glycation end products, etc…), Europeans refer to some of these molecules as food toxicants

  • Over consumption of high sugar and high carbohydrate processed foods (cake, cookies, pastry, soda, juice, pasta, bread, etc…)

What should a Comprehensive Holistic Health Protocol for Multiple Sclerosis include?

A Comprehensive Holistic Health Protocol should always be customized to meet the unique needs of each person. Not only do people have different genetic variations, but differ in important lifestyle factors that influence their overall health outcomes. A persons diet, stress levels, professional and family responsibilities, sleep patterns, exercise choices, as well as pre-exiting and concomitant medical conditions all must be considered in protocol design. Of the over 11,000 Customized Holistic Health Protocols we have designed in the last 27 years of clinical practice, no two have been exactly the same. An appropriate protocol should accomplish the following:

  • Evaluate and Establish how many of the above factors are involved in each persons unique clinical situation

  • Design and implement a Customized Dietary Plan (CDP) that will address the above factors involved in each persons condition

  • Design and implement a Targeted Nutritional Supplementation (TNS) strategy that will address the above factors involved in each persons condition

“In Multiple Sclerosis an imbalanced and malfunctioning immune system attacks and damages the Myelin coverings of the brain and spinal cord”

“In Auto-Immune Diseases like Multiple Sclerosis the regulatory (Tregs) aspect of the immune system cannot control the more aggressive (Th1, Th2, Th17) aspects of the immune system”

“Vitamin D Deficiency, Poor Diet, Leaky Gut, Intestinal Microbial Overgrowth, Hormone Imbalances, Latent Infections, and Adrenal Gland Dysfunction can all be factors involved in Multiple Sclerosis”

“The key to restoring health in those with Multiple Sclerosis is to identify which of the above factors are involved in each persons individual case and then address them”

“A Comprehensive Holistic Health Protocol for those with Multiple Sclerosis should always be customized to meet the unique needs of each person. Of the thousands of protocols we have designed in our 27 years of clinical practice, no two have been the same”
