Treating Multiple Sclerosis with Holistic Medicine
We understand that having a debilitating disease, such as multiple sclerosis, without any real solutions can be upsetting and frustrating. Multiple sclerosis is a rare disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of the nerves. The resulting nerve damage disrupts communication between the brain and the body. Although medical treatments can help, they cannot cure the condition, which leaves people feeling hopeless. The good news is that there are alternative treatments, such as holistic medicine, that can improve the symptoms of multiple sclerosis and improve one’s quality of life.
Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms
Some people may be free of multiple sclerosis symptoms for most of their life, while others can have severe chronic symptoms. Symptoms include:
⦁ Pain in back or eyes
⦁ Muscular cramping
⦁ Heat intolerance
⦁ Poor balance or vertigo
⦁ Abnormality of taste
⦁ Reduced sensation of touch
⦁ Excessive urination at night
⦁ Blurred vision, double vision or vision loss
⦁ Mood swings
⦁ Slurred speech
Holistic Treatments for Multiple Sclerosis
There are a number of holistic treatments that can improve the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. While these treatments can improve one’s quality of life, they are not a cure for multiple sclerosis. Holistic treatments that can benefit an individual who has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis include:
⦁ Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation: UBI helps men and women utilize the healing power of the sun’s rays by directly putting it into their bloodstream. Because of its profound photochemical, biochemical and physiological effects, it has been a great value in treating a wide variety of diseases. When blood is exposed to the ultraviolet light, pathogens and bacteria get killed and the blood becomes charged with more energy. The blood’s oxygen level becomes increased, which improves overall immune function.
⦁ Phospholipid Exchange Therapy: Chemicals from preservatives in foods, pesticides, and even some prescription drugs can stay in the body on a cellular level, which can cause dysfunction throughout the body. Phospholipid exchange replaces toxic fatty oils with cleaner versions of fatty oils by injecting phosphatidylcholine (PC), the main component of cellular membranes, into the bloodstream in order to make it available for use in cell membranes. Phospholipid exchange therapy replenishes fats and oils in the correct proportion within cell membranes and inside cells.
⦁ Intravenous IV Therapy: IV therapy has been known to be a powerful tool in combination with other therapies to help the body recover from many health issues. IV nutrition feeds vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream, which then bypasses the digestive system. In this way, nutrients are brought directly to the organ systems of the body.
⦁ Chelation Therapy: Chelation therapy uses medicines that remove both toxic and non-toxic metals from the body. Toxic metals, such as mercury, cadmium, and lead, are known to interfere with many biological functions within the body, and chelation therapy allows these metals to bind together in the bloodstream and guides them out of the body, which results in an overall higher immune system and improve overall health.
