Consuming oily fish reduces the risk and symptoms of MS
07/11/2018 // Jessica Dolores // Views

Taking tinned fish more often may lower the risk of having multiple sclerosis, according to a case-control study published in the Journal of Nutrition & Intermediary Metabolism. In the study, the researchers suggested having at least 30 g/day, or two servings a week, to achieve this effect.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the central nervous system, subsequently damaging the brain, the spinal cord, and optic nerves. People who suffer from MS show a variety of symptoms, including numbness and tingling in mild cases and paralysis and loss of vision when the disease reaches the advanced stage. Unlike other diseases, a cure has yet to be found. Its symptoms can be relieved, however, allowing the patient to cope with the problem. (Related: Multiple Sclerosis Caused by Vitamin D Deficiency.)

The key lies in consuming fish on a regular basis. In the study, scientists gathered dietary data through a Cancer Council Victoria food frequency questionnaire, which they distributed from 2003 to 2006. They then concluded that oily fish rich in vitamin D and omega 3, may benefit people with multiple sclerosis.

A healthy lifestyle

Prevention, of course, is better than cure. You can help your body keep MS at bay through a healthy lifestyle. Here's how:

  • Stop smoking. Smoking and exposure to cigarette smoke increase the likelihood of MS by nearly 150 percent.
  • Keep your weight down. Having a body mass index (BMI) of over 25 significantly increases the risk of contracting MS.
  • Take alcohol in moderation. Too much alcohol increases the risk of liver disease and dementia.

Going natural

It also pays to go natural.  It's less costly, and it has no side effects. Here's how:

  • Try ginkgo biloba. A study revealed that MS patients who took 240 milligrams  of ginkgo biloba a day improved their functional performance.
  • Take turmeric. Curcuminoids, the active ingredient in turmeric, is known to treat various diseases, including MS.
  • Increase your ginger intake. This wonder spice, aside from its anti-inflammatory and brain protecting properties, also helps protect against cell death. It's also a potent antioxidant.
  • Eat a dandelion. It's a weed in some parts of the world, but the root and leaf of the dandelion plant possess medicinal properties. Studies have also shown that the plant is particularly helpful in reducing fatigue, which is one of the primary symptoms of MS.

Consider other therapies as well: Acupuncture, oxygen therapy, chiropractic procedures, the use of essential oils, reflexology and pressure point messaging help fast-track healing when the patient takes the right diet.

Multiple sclerosis – or any disease – should not rob you of the will to live and the joy of living. The remedy may just be on your kitchen table. All you have to do is load up on the bounties of the sea and watch your health.
