Some proponents of non-conventional medicine say a multiple sclerosis natural cure is possible for those willing to change their lifestyles. For the cynics who disagree, an MS natural cure is as unlikely as miracle healing to exist.

These vastly differing opinions can be attributed to a number of factors. One of them is the fact that there are different variants of MS, apparently triggered by different factors. If a patient has a form of MS that is strongly linked to vitamin D deficiency and other forms of nutrient deficiency, addressing the deficiencies early could conceivably stop the disease in its tracks. It might also be possible, if the damage to the tissue is not too extensive, for the tissue to regenerate sufficiently to restore lost function. If that happens, then one should not be surprised if the patient believes that he or she is in possession of a natural cure for multiple sclerosis.

An individual whose multiple sclerosis is strongly linked to irreversible or unidentifiable factors is bound to derive less benefit from a healthier diet and nutritional supplements. The fact that, even with major lifestyle changes, he or she may still suffer from bouts of multiple sclerosis could be viewed by cynics as incontrovertible evidence that there is no such thing as a multiple sclerosis natural cure.


Revisiting The Question Of Whether There Is A Natural Cure For Multiple Sclerosis?


Another factor that is worth pointing out is that MS is a disease which can progress in four distinct ways. The first type of MS, called relapsing-remitting MS involves alternations between unpredictable relapses and periods of remission that could be anything from a few months long to many years long. Secondary progressive MS, the second type, starts out resembling relapsing-remitting MS, then progresses to acute attacks interspersed with periods of continuous neurological decline. With the third type of MS, primary progressive MS, decline is progressive right from the beginning. Remissions are rare, and any recovery during such periods is minor. The fourth type of MS, progressive relapsing MS, involves progressive neurological decline in addition to distinct attacks.

Given that MS can progress in these distinct ways, it is entirely possible for those who change their lifestyles and succeed in easing their symptoms to be told that they are simply experiencing a slowly-progressing type of MS. Years of symptom-free existence after the adoption of complementary forms of treatment are unlikely to be viewed as evidence of an MS natural cure. It is more likely for such an outcome to be viewed as proof that the remission period can be lengthened and the speed of neurological decline slowed down by adopting certain lifestyle changes. Ultimately, it is only the passage of time that will conclusively answer the question of whether there is a natural cure for multiple sclerosis.
