Subject: Re: Alternative treatments for MS
> 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.
> Any help would be greatly appreciated!
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.
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
