MS Cures(NaturalHealth365) Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease in which the myelin sheath on the nerve endings gets inflamed and damaged. This leads to scarring of the neurological tissue in the brain and spinal cord. While the medical model has very little support, many individuals have found ways to beat multiple sclerosis with natural lifestyle strategies.

MS is a condition in which the body’s own immune system attacks the fatty myelin sheaths that insulate nerve tissue. This results in scar tissue plaques that disrupt neurological signals throughout the body. MS actually means multiple scars/plaques/lesions. One of the major areas affected is the white matter of the brain and spinal cord which is mostly myelin.

How does vitamin D deficiency promote multiple sclerosis?

MS is a sign of a hyper responsive mal-coordinated immune system. The keys to stabilize and re-coordinate the immune response are to optimize vitamin D3 levels, avoid inflammatory foods and repair the gut and neurological processing.

One of the major epidemiological factors associated with MS is its striking difference in number of cases based on geography and climate. Those living close to the equator have significantly lower risk of MS. This is due to the beneficial effects of regular sun exposure and vitamin D intake in modulating healthy immune responses.

In the Northern hemisphere, most people have increased vitamin D3 levels in the fall after a full summer of increased UV light exposure. January – April are usually when the lowest levels are reached.

A 2009 study showed that more individuals who develop MS and other auto-immune related conditions are born in May than in November. This would indicate that low motherly D3 levels lead to developmental and maladaptive immunological responses in the child. D3 levels should be between 70-100 ng/ml for optimal immunological expression.

The connection between leaky gut syndrome and MS

Chronic auto-immune and other inflammatory based issues are very often associated with a damaged gut lining. This leaky gut causes undigested food particles to pass into the bloodstream where they are tagged by the immune system and attacked with massive inflammatory processes that have the ability to affect nearly every system in the body. This creates a food allergy or insensitivity that the body reacts to whenever it is exposed.

The most common food based culprits include all processed foods, artificial sweeteners/preservatives and gluten containing products. Soy, peanuts, pasteurized dairy, eggs and other heavy proteins are often not tolerated well. The nightshade family of eggplant, potatoes and tomatoes are often challenging on the system as well.

Anti-inflammatory nutrition is essential for healing

An anti-inflammatory lifestyle is very important for full recovery from MS. The most important anti-inflammatory foods include good fat sources such as coconut, avocado, olive oil, grass-fed butter & purified fish oils. Phytonutrient rich fruits and vegetables that are low in sugar such as green leafy veggies, onions, garlic, herbs, citrus & berries are vital for recovery.

Fermented raw dairy from grass-fed cows or goats in the form of amasai, kefir and raw cheese along with an abundance of cultured vegetables should be a staple part of the diet. Cultured veggies include non-processed sauerkraut, pickles, kimchi, etc. Additionally, fermented drinks such as coconut water kefir, fermented whey, kombucha and apple cider vinegar should be used in abundance.

Where do you get your protein?

High quality protein sources such as grass-fed beef, wild game, wild fish & organic eggs contain loads of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids which are key for healthy neurological tissue. Individuals with MS should consume very high amounts of these omega-3 rich foods along with vegetables and anti-inflammatory herbs such as turmeric, ginger, rosemary, oregano, thyme, cinnamon and clove.

People with auto-immune related disorders such as MS are likely to have neurological dysfunction in their upper neck. Subluxation, or neurological interference at the occipital region along with C1-C2 affects immunological coordination. Well trained chiropractors can analyze these regions and give specific corrective adjustments and exercises to restore balance and optimal neurological expression to re-coordinate the immune system..

    I had my blood test for the D3 and was at 18. I followed my doctors advice and supplemented with 6,000 IUs of D3 but after 6 months only reached 27. I was increased to 11,000 IUs and within several months developed arrhythmias. I stopped the supplement and 14 days later the arrhythmias stopped. After several months I started again on the D3 and within 3 days the arrhythmias returned. I stopped again but have been left with intermitant arrhythmias. I recently read that if you have difficulty raising your D3 numbers and develop arrhythmias then you may be deficient in magnesium (MG). My serum MG is fine per the doctor but I have so many symptoms of MG deficiency that I’m now taking 200 mg of elemental MG. I’m going to try D3 supplementation again soon but have you any experience in recommending D3 and then having patients or others relay what I have? I’ve also read that K2 is required to properly place the D3 in the bones. So, D3 has cofactors of MG and K2 but rarely am I reading any recommendations from physicians to include the cofactors when dosing for D3. I also am now aware, since I look at ingredients, that D3 is being added to lots of things. Won’t this potentially put a drain on an already low MG populace? I’d like to see you write about MG deficiency and treatment. Thank you for your time.

    Very interesting, thank you. I have scoured the alternative literature in an attempt to discover whether it is possible to actually reverse autoimmune conditions completely. I have celiac disease, as do my three kids, and I would like to know if there is a way to get rid of this. Not that I want to go out and eat gluten, that is not the object of the exercise. But having an auto-immune condition like this seems to make one so much more susceptible to other autoimmune diseases, and obviously just means that one’s whole immune system is on high alert which must negatively affect the rest of one’s health. If it is true that to suffer from something like celiac disease a particular gene has been turned on, and I firmly believe that genes are turned on largely by environment, then surely it must be possible to turn the same gene off. But how? Many thanks
