Is there any Natural cure for multiple sclerosis and osteoporosis in the same pe

A: Dr. Roy Swank, Professor of Neurology at the University of Oregon Medical School, has provided convincing evidence that a diet low in saturated fats, maintained over a long period of time, tends to retard the disease process of MS and reduce the number of attacks. Swank began successfully treating patients with his low-fat diet in 1948. Dr. Swank recommends: * A saturated fat intake of no more than 10 grams per day. * A daily intake of 40-to-50 grams of polyunsaturated oils per day (margarine, shortening, and hydrogenated oils are not allowed). * At least 1 teaspoon of cod liver oil per day. * A normal allowance of protein (0.8 g/kg) * Consumption of cold-water fish (e.g. salmon, mackerel, and herring) 3or more times per week in order to boost omega-3 fatty acids. The Swank Diet...

What Are the Best Tips About Nutrition for multiple sclerosis?

A: There is no cure for multiple sclerosis, so patients and physicians work to control the symptoms of the disorder using medications, therapy and diet. Nutrition for multiple sclerosis can be used as a supplement to treatment, but it should not be used alone to manage or to attempt to cure the disorder. Patients are advised to eat a well-balanced diet, supplemented by some key vitamins and nutrients to help control symptoms. Unbalanced or insufficient diets can exacerbate the muscle tremors, fatigue and pain that are characteristic of this disease. Some specialty diets claim to provide the...


How Effective Is Interferon for multiple sclerosis?

A: Interferon, also referred to as beta interferon, is an antiviral protein used to treat the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, also known as MS. There are three types of interferon typically prescribed for treating relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS): Avonex®, Betaseron® and Rebif®. Interferon for multiple sclerosis has been shown to effectively decrease the number of relapses multiple sclerosis patients suffer and to slow the rate of physical disability. Treatment may shorten the length of attacks and make them less severe as...


How Effective Is Acupuncture for multiple sclerosis?

A: Patients the world over have used acupuncture for multiple sclerosis (MS) symptoms, and studies have shown that most experience some level of improvement with repeated visits. This generally works best when used in conjunction with other therapies, including some holistic approaches and conventional methods. In many large studies, the majority of patients saw marked improvement in muscle tone, coordination, bladder control, and muscle pain. Acupuncture works by opening pathways between nerves and body systems and the brain, so that they can communicate more effectively. MS affects these pathways and creates substances that lead to blockages, resulting in ineffective communication between muscles and the brain. This...


What's the best treatment for multiple sclerosis?

A: there is no known "best" treatment for MS. every case is different and your choices should be made on information that is read-ally available from your neurologist and on the web. I was officially diagnosed yesterday. but i looked into many different treatments over the last month before i made my choice. P.S. my mother had MS at a time when there was no treatments Although nutritional supplements and rife machines make sense and have their place, LDN or low dose naltrexone is the single most significant drug treatment I have used or read about. One year of Copaxone failed to diminish the increase in actively enhancing lesions found on MRI, but within weeks of beginning treatment with LDN, I could feel...


Is there a time limit for taking Copaxone for multiple sclerosis or is there somthing better out there?

A: Copaxone (glatiramer) is a combination of four amino acids (proteins) that affect the immune system. It is used to treat multiple sclerosis (MS) and to prevent relapse of MS. Copaxone will not cure MS, but it can make relapses occur less often. Clinical studies have looked at the long-term use of Copaxone and found no safety issues. In March 2010, results were published from a study looking at data from patients using Copaxone for up to 15 years. To summarize, the study showed that relapse rates continued to decline over the 15 year period and there were no long-term safety issues. Research is always ongoing and there are MS medications being investigated in clinical trials. The focus is on...


Alternative medicine for multiple sclerosis

A: Don''t know about Sativex but I have heard that many people have shown major improvement and far fewer MS attacks by taking vitamin D supplements. Old guidelines used to say that 2000 I.U. a day was the limit but newer studies show that up to 10,000 I.U. a day is safe. Vitamin D is also found in milk and is produced by the sun, so get about 30 minutes of sun a day from May until October. As the question is asked in alternative medicine category, I''ll say accordingly. Complementary treatments may be used together with conventional medicine or as an alternative. However, home treatment of MS is not recommended. Should you decide to explore alternatives to conventional medicine, consult a qualified homeopath that would be able to monitor your progress and ensure that you are receiving the...
