(NaturalNews) Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease in which the myelin sheath on the nerve endings gets inflamed and damaged. This leads to scarring of the neurological tissue in the brain and spinal cord. While the medical model has very little support, many individuals have found ways to beat multiple sclerosis with natural lifestyle strategies.

MS is a condition in which the body's own immune system attacks the fatty myelin sheaths that insulate nerve tissue. This results in scar tissue plaques that disrupt neurological signals throughout the body. MS actually means multiple scars/plaques/lesions. One of the major areas that is affected is the white matter of the brain and spinal cord which is mostly myelin.

MS is a sign of a hyper responsive, mal-coordinated immune system. The keys to stabilize and re-coordinate the immune response are to optimize vitamin D3 levels, avoid inflammatory foods and repair the gut and neurological processing.

One of the major epidemiological factors associated with MS is its striking difference in the number of cases based on geography and climate. Those living close to the equator have significantly lower risk of MS. This is due to the beneficial effects of regular sun exposure and vitamin D intake in modulating healthy immune responses.

In the Northern hemisphere, most people have increased vitamin D3 levels in the fall after a full summer of increased UV light exposure. January-April are usually when the lowest levels are reached. A 2009 study showed that more individuals who develop MS and other auto-immune related conditions are born in May than in November. This would indicate that low motherly D3 levels lead to developmental and maladaptive immunological responses in the child. D3 levels should be between 70-100 ng/ml for optimal immunological expression.

Heal the gut

Chronic auto-immune and other inflammatory-based issues are very often associated with a damaged gut lining. This leaky gut causes undigested food particles to pass into the bloodstream where they are tagged by the immune system and attacked with massive inflammatory processes that have the ability to affect nearly every system in the body.

The most common food-based culprits include all processed foods, artificial sweeteners/preservatives and products containing gluten. Soy, peanuts, pasteurized dairy, eggs and other heavy proteins are often not tolerated well.

An anti-inflammatory lifestyle is very important for full recovery from MS. The most important anti-inflammatory foods include good fat sources such as coconut, avocado, olive oil, grass-fed butter and purified fish oils. Phytonutrient-rich fruits and vegetables that are low in sugar such as green leafy veggies, onions, garlic, herbs, citrus & berries are vital for recovery.

Fermented raw dairy from grass-fed cows or goats in the form of amasai, kefir and raw cheese along with an abundance of cultured vegetables should be a staple part of the diet. Cultured veggies include non-processed sauerkraut, pickles, kimchi, etc. Additionally, fermented drinks such as coconut water kefir, fermented whey and apple cider vinegar should be used in abundance.

High quality protein sources such as grass-fed beef, wild game, wild fish and organic eggs contain loads of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. Individuals with MS should consume very high amounts of these omega-3 rich foods along with vegetables and anti-inflammatory herbs such as turmeric, ginger, rosemary, oregano, thyme, cinnamon and clove.

People with autoimmune related disorders such as MS are likely to have neurological dysfunction in their upper neck. Neurological interference at the occipital region along with C1-C2 affects immunological coordination. Well trained chiropractors can analyze these regions and give specific adjustments and exercises to restore balance and optimal neurological expression to re-coordinate the immune system.
