Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects the brain and the spinal cord. This is your Central Nervous System, and it is responsible for sending all the messages to all the parts of the body.
There is a protective covering over all the nerves of the brain and spinal cord called myelin. It is like the insulation on an electrical wire and the myelin insures that the messages are being communicated smoothly.
When a person has Multiple Sclerosis, the myelin is breaking down. The nerves are no longer fully protected and the messages become garbled.
The word 'sclerosis' means scar or lesion. Creating this scar tissue is how your body responds to the fraying of the protective myelin. The body makes this sclerosis to try and tape the holes closed. It doesn't really work. The signals are interrupted, and so the messages are not clear. The brain is short-circuiting.
MS is an auto-immune disease. This means that the cells that normally fight infection instead start attacking the healthy, normal cells. No one knows why this happens, but there is a lot of research that links free radical damage to auto-immune diseases.
MS is a progressive, unpredictable disease. It affects each person's body and mind differently. Everyone's system and lifestyle is unique. Many patients choose to support themselves with alternative as well as traditional treatments.
Each flare-up causes more scar tissue to be laid down. The messages have a harder and harder time getting through. Remissions between flare-ups can last for days, months or years.
It is important to remember that each person responds differently to Multiple Sclerosis. You have a unique body and are having a unique experience. Avail yourself of the research and science on these pages. Making an informed decision about the variety of treatments available is key to coping with your disease.
Knowledge is empowering.
You can read the scientific evidence about
– a safe, effective and natural treatment that is supported by both traditional and alternative doctors and health specialists. People with Multiple Sclerosis are raising their intracellular levels of glutathione and are experiencing freedom from their symptoms through cellular repair. They are regaining their quality of life.
All the research is at your fingertips. This site has links to many of the scientific articles that have been published about glutathione and Multiple Sclerosis. Learning as much as you can about the disease and your options is a very important first step.
Thanks to the Information Age, all the research is at your fingertips.
