Treatments for Multiple Sclerosis – What You Need To Know
Multiple sclerosis is a serious chronic illness which can have a dramatic effect on the life of a sufferer, so it’s easy to think of it as something that can only be alleviated with ‘serious’ medical approaches- immunotherapy, corticosteroids, intensive occupational therapy- even surgery, in the case of severe tremors or loss of motor control. Unfortunately, these multiple sclerosis treatment options also come with serious side effects and consequences- from the multiple side effects known to occur during steroid use, to the permanent loss of ability that comes with surgical intervention. Even new treatments for multiple sclerosis, such as Tecfidera, an anti-inflammatory drug that has been previously used in the treatment of psoriasis, have side effects such as nausea vomiting, diarrhoea and abdominal pain.
However, there are proven alternatives which are not only effective, they do not come burdened with these side effects. For those seeking more natural multiple sclerosis treatment, several clinical trials have been conducted regarding the application of lifestyle changes, dietary changes and alternative therapies, and how they result in measurable improvements in the frequency, severity and duration of ‘attacks’ of symptoms. These complementary therapies are designed to boost the body’s ability to reduce myelin depletion, manage symptoms whilst they are occurring, and heal faster. For example, correct nutrition is a form of natural treatment for MS which is aimed at boosting the body’s own ability to heal itself. Meditation, clinically proven to help induce relaxation throughout the nervous system thanks to alpha brain waves, helps to reduce instances of weakness, spasms and loss of motor control.
Active supplementation is a helpful natural remedy for MS which involves identifying what nutrients are necessary for the body to strengthen and repair myelin, as well as those which help reduce the severity of attacks, such as omega-3 and 6 fatty acids. Then, there are the psychological elements- using techniques such as neuro-linguistic programming to recognise and treat negative thought patterns which may emerge as a result of the treatment itself, or as a side-effect of the medical approach. It’s hardly a brand new treatment for MS, but it is something that is left out when managing healthcare practitioners fail to take a holistic approach.
You Can Beat MS is a unique program which brings all of the wisdom of multiple sclerosis natural treatment proponents and experts, in a way that’s easy to understand and implement. Through six progressive modules, sufferers, their carers and others close to them can learn more about MS, and the changes they need to make in order to work towards living a symptom-free life.

As well as delineating a number of MS natural treatments, the program helps the user to plan for a life uninhibited by multiple sclerosis. This means planning for life changes, occupational requirements, and lifestyle changes which will help them to carry on the benefits of any natural therapies for MS in a sustainable and meaningful way.
