What really is Multiple Sclerosis?

Good question, isn't it?

More about systemic enzymes that are keeping me MS attacks-free – here

Official medicine is speaking about Multiple Sclerosis everyday. But still – what are they speaking about?

I went to Google and asked for definition of Multiple Sclerosis. You can see the result of my inquiry in article On MS definition. All 26 definitions are more or less incorrect. In reality it's a completely useless mess. Yeah.

I've written another article MS – name ambiguity on the subject. It starts with MS description by National Multiple Sclerosis Society (USA). I analyzed it carefully and find it to be completely misleading.

One more MS definition can be found in article of Wikipedia.org:

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune response attacks a person's central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), leading to demyelination… The name multiple sclerosis refers to scars (scleroses—better known as plaques or lesions) in the white matter of the brain and spinal cord, which is mainly composed of myelin.

Almost any neurological symptom can appear with the disease…

Although much is known about the mechanisms involved in the disease process, the cause remains unknown. Theories include genetics or infections. Different environmental risk factors have also been found.

That's better – MS really is an autoimmune disorder. Unfortunately, I still have no idea, what is a key difference between 'immune response' and 'immune system'. Isn't this explanation perfect: "Almost any neurological symptom can appear with the disease". Please remember – we are speaking about CNS damage! MS triggers have been mentioned only, without ANY further explanation. However, you can find some information in a chapter Triggers of my website.

    This book I'm reading, MicroMiracles mentions two treatments for keeping veins clear and healing them that I have never really heard of before… it might be something to help prevent restenosis I don't know, but the reviews on iherb.com for these products is pretty good. Not that I am an herbalist or anything, but I have never heard of collinsonia root before… Cutler says that it improves blood flow to the brain and has an amazing effect when used in conjunction with enzymes for totally getting rid of sinusitis and that it will help keep the veins in the neck clear… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collinsonia_canadensis Medicinal uses Petersen's Materia Medica describes the use: "Has a special influence on the nervous system and mucous membranes, removing congestion and improving circulation of the capillaries. This influence is most marked in relaxed conditions of the mucous membranes of the throat and lower bowels. A valuable remedy in sore throat, laryngitis, pharyngitis, with relaxed and enfeebled capillary circulation. May be combined to advantage with other indicated remedies in atonic dyspepsia, catarrhal gastritis with defective circulation and irritable condition of the heart from weakness. In hemorrhoids, when indicated, it is our best remedy. In these cases it should be used in small doses. Scudder recommends it in nurse's sore mouth, and no doubt it is effective in such cases where there is relaxed condition with impaired capillary circulation in the parts. It is generally given in doses of 4 to 6 drops, with the exception of hemorrhoids, where 1/2 to 1 drop doses are more effective than the larger doses."[4] Stone root has been used as a natural remedy for the relief of Sinus congestion and Varicose veins. ……………… Also, she mentions boswellia resin extract as controlling the inflammation that is the precursor to venous insufficiency and blockages… http://www.organicfoodee.com/herbs/boswelliaresin/ In addition, these anti-inflammatory activities do not seem to be associated with the generalized immune suppression so often seen with long-term use of steroid drugs. Boswellic acids function as potent anti-inflammatory agents in rheumatic conditions, being especially effective in shrinking inflamed tissues. Boswellic acids improve blood supply to the joints and restore the integrity of blood vessels obliterated by spasm. They may also open up collateral blood circulation to provide adequate blood supply to the joints. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14994484

    My Fiancee was diagnosed 4 years ago and She has been very well and has been taking the interferon based medicine injections 3 times per week and recently she has started to have an exasperation of symptoms on her left side and her doctor ordered another scan of her head for her (MRI), She just had an MRI in November and it showed no progression of plaques or lesions since her last one.I want to know about the systemic enzyme treatment and if they really work and are worth the time, could you please send me some information on their origins and where they can be done and cost associated with them. I would appreciate anything you can send me on this or any other topic that could benefit the Love of my Life, anything that will make her life easier and help her with this disease. thank You for Your Help and Time. Sincerely Bill

    I was diagnosed (MS) two years ago. I'm 43, female, married, 2 children. I awoke one morning with numbness from my rib cage down to my toes on my left side of my body. I was seen by my PCP and was immediately sent to have a MRI. I received a call around 5:30 that day to be notified that my PCP suspected MS. Six months later after multiple doctor visits and a spinal tap I was officially diagnosed. I began Copaxone and have given myself the shot ever since. Other than a slight numbness on my left side and spasticity I do well. I took Clonazapham and Baclofen and am glad to say that I went cold turkey off of those meds. I am now on Synthroid due to Hashimotos and am considering going cold on Synthroid. I walk and ride my bike about an hour every day. It has transformed my life. I think clear, depression is better and I feel powerful. I will continue to exercise as long as I can. I take a B-12 shot monthly, B-5, B-6, B Complex, and magnesium. I don't smoke or drink. I try to go to bed no later than 11 and am very careful of overdoing any physical activity for pleasure or work. I pray and attend church regularly (3x's per week). I rely on Gods strength especially during my walks to give me fuel for my future. I used to panic often but have improved in that area. I plan to start taking enzymes as soon as I find them and will be happy to keep everyone updated. I wish the best for all you good folks having to carry this burden called MS. I don't have a specific answer but I do believe that if you take it one day at a time, that's really all anyone is capable of doing. God Bless, Cynthia.
