Q: 

I have multiple sclerosis. Are there supplements that I should particularly take or avoid?

A: Marijuana may be effective to treat tremor and spasticity symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Keep in mind that marijuana must be used under the supervision of a health care provider and is still illegal in many states. Vitamin D has been shown to be effective in preventing multiple sclerosis when taken long term. Supplement of 400 IU per day seems to be effective. Some research shows higher doses may be more effective. Vitamin b-12, Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Magnesium may also be effective. Other treatments such as Bee Venom, Apitherapy, Fish oil, Ginkgo Biloba, linoleic acid, and phenylalanine have been used. These treatments have insufficient evidence for effectiveness....


Q: 

My sister has multiple sclerosis?

A: If she drinks diet soda or saccharin that would be the cause of it. as far as i know multiple sclerosis degenerates the nerve cells in the myolin sheath which is the fatty layer in the axon of the nerve cell. if it doesnt get enough fat these cells stop to function. im really sorry about your sister, but its not so bad! This is a very serious disease. Please search for multiple sclerosis on your serch engine for more info. MS is a degenerative disease that over time errodes the myelin sheath, which act as an insulator to the lower part of your nerve cells. In laymans terms this means that slowly but surely the nerve cells will begin to lose control, making everyday things like walking,...


Q: 

What May Be Taken For multiple sclerosis Headaches, Which Would Not Be Addictive?

A: Neurontin is a drug used by Doctors in pain management for people with multiple sclerosis. It is believed to be non-habit forming, and works well on migraine headaches. If you are experiencing headaches or general pain due to MS, talk to your Doctor about Neurontin. I hope this helps you out. In reality anything can be addictive even tylenol. Once your body gets used to taking something everyday it can cause problems if you stop. Sometimes they prescribe antidepressents. But this is something you have to take everyday headache or not because it messes with your chemical balance. You should talk to your doctor about the headaches. Antidepressant medications are used to treat headaches in multiple

Q: 

How to Use Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation for the Treatment of multiple sclerosis

A: multiple sclerosis is a degenerative autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system. symptoms vary widely among those diagnosed with MS, but common ailments include muscle weakness, numb limbs, blurred vision and even paralysis. There is no known cure for MS, so patients and their families are turning to alternative treatments, such as cranial electrotherapy stimulation, to attempt to treat it. Cranial electrotherapy stimulation passes electrical impulses across the base of the skull to change the brain''s electrical activity. It has improved or eliminated symptoms for some MS patients but is still considered experimental by the mainstream medical community....


Q: 

I've got multiple sclerosis...?

A: My sister has MS but has had no symptoms for years. Why do you have to "break'' it to him? MS is not a communicable disease and he can''t "catch" it from you. Do you take medication? Do you follow doctors orders? Then you may not have any symptoms for a long time. Some time when you are having a meaningful conversation, ask him what he knows about MS and then explain it to him. If he''s put off or leaves you he wasn''t worth it in the first place. If he really likes/loves you it won''t matter to him and he''ll want to be with you just the same. Good luck. It all depends on the guy, if you can see a future with him then tell him straight away. I''ve had MS since i was 17(now 28) and its a hard thing to say to anybody, to tell...

Q: 

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...
