Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, progressive disease that causes the immune system to attack myelin. Myelin is a substance that coats the body’s nerves, so problems with this layer can make it difficult for nerves to communicate, leading to movement issues, pain, and trouble thinking clearly.
Ms natural treatment is based on maintaining a healthy lifestyle and diet. However, it will not be possible to cure multiple sclerosis, relying only on such methods. Let’s look at what other natural methods can be included in your treatment plan.
As already mentioned, nutrition is one of the main methods in the treatment of MS. Multiple sclerosis inherently causes chronic inflammation, so it is important to choose the right diet. For people who suffer from this disease, a low-fat and high-fiber diet is suitable. Such a diet will have a positive effect on the general state of health, for example, on the work of the heart.
You can alleviate the symptoms if you add Omega-3 fatty acids to your diet, as well as fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Omega-3 is found in large amounts in fish, namely salmon and mackerel, and nuts, and fruits, vegetables and cereals are rich in protein and antioxidants.
But salt, dairy fatty foods and saturated fats should be excluded or at least reduce their amount in the diet.
Do not forget about herbal supplements, few believe that they affect something, but it’s worth believing it! For example, these supplements can help you:
● Ginkgo and fish oil
● St. John’s wort
● Valerian root
Some of the herbs will help improve immunity, others relieve symptoms of depression, and others, on the contrary, will help to relax and get out of a state of stress. In any case, herbal supplements will not be worse.
With dietary supplements, for example vitamins, it is worth being careful and before making a decision it is worth consulting with the attending physician. MS natural treatment may include the use of such vitamins and supplements:
Not only will it help to improve well-being during the illness, but it is also possible to prevent its occurrence
Antioxidant vitamins will help slow down and even relieve inflammation in some cases, but you need to know in what dose they will suit you specifically, so you can not take them yourself without consulting a doctor.
People with multiple sclerosis often have this vitamin in short supply, you should also consult a doctor for advice, and if this is true, then most likely your well-being will improve when the indicator returns to normal
The supplement can reduce the risk of osteoporosis, which some people with MS have a higher risk of developing/
Sports are always good, doing light exercises daily, you will feel more active and not so tired. Yoga is a great option for people with MS, but don’t forget about minimal strength training.
There is no clear evidence, but some claim that acupuncture helps. You can consult with a doctor, find a good certified specialist and try this way of treatment. The risks are minimal!
Ms natural treatment has almost no evidence of effectiveness, but many believe it helps. Try it yourself, but don’t forget that you need a doctor’s consultation first.
And remember – the naturopathic doctor is near me!
