Before embarking on a routine of Natural MS Treatments, be sure there are no adverse effects to immediately stopping any current medications.  You may need to wean off of drugs to make sure you don’t suffer adverse reactions.  Most patients opting for Natural MS Treatments find considerable relief, sometimes with symptoms disappearing completely, and with few if any side-effects. This approach works best when started early in the progress of MS and can often prevent rapid progression of MS.

Nutrition can play an important role in managing Multiple Sclerosis.  It is difficult, especially at first, to figure out which supplements and which food combinations are responsible for certain symptoms and relief of those symptoms.  So at least involve your doctor in your nutritional modifications so that any medicines you may remain on can be adjusted if necessary.


Changing your diet is the first obvious step


While many conventional Medical doctors may not agree about the role of nutrition supplements and diet change in MS treatment, there does seem to be many correlations. For example, a high percentage of MS patients were eating diets prior to diagnosis that were high in animal fat and hydrogenated fats like margarine and vegetable oil spreads. Elimination of these fats seems to give relief to the patients, as reported by the patients themselves.

Food intolerances are another area of exploration. Each patient has their own intolerances, and Natural MS Treatments involve identifying these intolerances and eliminating them from the diet.  The most common food allergies are certain grains, milk, soy, yeast, and genetically modified foods.  The patient could undergo tests to eliminate or identify these allergies, or they can go through a challenge/elimination process on their own. But finding out what the allergies are for a specific patient is often a key to unlocking the nutritional modifications that will lead to relief.


A final thought for those that may doubt the role of nutrition in Natural MS Treatments


There are a lot of herbs being studied and in trial around the world but consider these two:  Turmeric and Curcumin.  Both are showing both symptom relief and even some evidence of slowing the disease progression.

India and China have some of the lowest rates of MS as a percentage of population in the world. People in those countries both eat diets where Turmeric and Curcumin are used as primary ingredients in many of their traditional recipes.  This is just one of countless examples of the role nutrition may play in treating MS.

Coincidence could explain it, but that kind of coincidence is not likely.  The avenues of exploration for Natural MS Treatments are many.  Perhaps it’s time you start exploring some of them as well.
