The conventional treatment option for multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immunosuppressant, which has serous side effects. MS sufferers turn to naturopathic treatment for their safety and lack of side effects. Naturopathic should be used in conjunction with conventional treatment options.
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable nervous disorder that is believed to be an autoimmune disease. MS causes a demyelization where the impulses from the nerves cannot get to their destination, causing disability such as vision, walking, balance, and even swallowing in advanced stages.
The diet becomes very important when treating MS naturally. A person can take multiple herbs, but if he is eating junk food daily, the body will not respond favorably. Cutting out excess sugars and fats, and consuming more whole fruits, vegetables and nuts can help improve symptoms.
Herbs can help strengthen the immune system. Useful herbs for MS include gingko extract, 40 to 80 mg three times daily; green tea extract, 250 to 500 mg daily; Rhodiola extract, 100 to 600 mg daily; and bromelain extract, 40 mg three times per day.
Omega-3’s fight inflammation; take 1 to 2 capsules per day. Evening primrose oil also reduces inflammation; take between 500 mg and 8 g per day. Use a multivitamin and probiotics that contain lactobacillus acidophilus.
Roughly, 350,000 Americans have MS, which normally strikes between the ages of 20 and 45 years.
People with MS can combine natural treatment options with conventional treatment options for the maximum benefit.
