> I have just been disgnosed with multiple sclerosis. So far it is very mild, so "drug" treatment does not really interest me. I am curious if anyone has information about alternative treatments for the management of MS. I'm especially interested in personal experiences, both from the user's standpoint and the treatment provider.

Hello, I have worked with people with M.S. Clients and family members. I would suggest working with someone in your area so that the approach can be tailored to your unique individual constitution, Here are the general guidelines I have worked with.

  1. Very low fat diet, however don't cut back to much on essential fatty acids, evening primrose oil, flax seed etc. can be good sources
  2. A nervine support blend, St Johns wort has been very effective in many situations, a common blend I use is equal parts: fresh St. John's Wort, (Hypericum perforatum), Fresh Scullcap, (Scutellaria latifolia) Wild Oat, (Avena sativa), as tincture 30-60 drops 3 times a day.
  3. A stress relief blend to take as needed. I find avoiding stress is absolutely critical, since the nervous system is already compromised. Going to bed at the first sign of an attack is important as well.
  4. An alterative herb taken on a regular basis can be helpful in supporting underlying systems and promoting healing. Pick one that seems to fit you constitutionally the best. (that's where a local healer can be helpful, there are hundreds of alterative herbs)

Good Luck email me privately if you want or have questions
