If you suspect you suffer from multiple sclerosis, seek diagnosis as soon as possible, as early diagnosis can dramatically improve the likelihood of a successful treatment outcome. An excellent means of diagnosing MS is electrodermal screening, which can often detect disease symptoms far earlier than conventional testing methods, and which can also detect hidden causative factors that other tests are unable to find.
A healthy diet is essential for dealing successfully with MS. Emphasize a diet that is low in saturated fats and abundant in essential fatty acids. Eat plenty of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, oily fish, free-range poultry, and olive, flaxseed, safflower, and sunflower oils. Organic nuts and seeds, millet, mung beans, and mung bean sprouts are also recommended.
Avoid alcohol, chocolate, dairy products, eggs, fast and commercially prepared foods, fermented foods, hydrogenated oils and solid fats, margarine, red meats, salt, shellfish, sugar, and yeast, as well as hydrolyzed vegetable proteins and food additives and preservatives.
For additional benefit, supplement with four to ten teaspoons of unsaturated oils each day.
Recommended nutritional supplements for MS include B complex vitamins, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, beta carotene and other carotenoids, bioflavonoids, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, calcium AEP, magnesium, selenium, and zinc.
Other useful supplements include alpha lipoic acid, CoQ10, DMSO, MSM, and the amino acids carnitine, choline, cysteine, glutathione, and methionine.
Test for and eliminate all foods and environmental factors that can cause allergies and sensitivities.
To reduce the burden of toxins in your body, consider a program of detoxification therapy, ideally under the supervision of your physician.
If you have mercury-containing dental amalgam fillings, have them removed and replaced with new fillings made from materials with which you are biocompatible.
Avoid exposure to unhealthy electromagnetic fields (EMFs) caused by electricity flowing through the coils of electrical wires and common home and office appliances and equipment, as well as cell phones and many types of motors. To protect yourself from unhealthy EMFs, consider wearing a Teslar watch and receiving weak pulsed magnet therapy.
Be sure to minimize your stress levels using mind/body medicine techniques such as biofeedback, guided imagery and visualization, hypnosis, meditation, and relaxation exercises such as deep breathing.
A restful nap each day can also help reduce your MS symptoms.
Regularly engage in an exercise program of gentle aerobics or walking to keep your muscles toned and supple.
To increase oxygenation of tissues and to stimulate the repair of myelin, consider hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).
