MS or multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system that includes the brain and spinal cord. Multiple sclerosis takes place when myelin a fatty substance that insulates the nerves and acts as a protective covering gets corroded and inflamed causing a disruption in the function of the nerves which transmit electrical impulses to and from the brain.
Wherever the myelin gets damaged lesions appear in the form of tough scars. These scars appear at different times and different areas of the brain and spinal cord. Multiple sclerosis means demyelination or lesions and scars which cause various mental and physical dysfunctions and affects many people between the ages of twenty and forty.
There are various symptoms like uncoordinated movements, muscle weakness, impaired vision, loss of control over bladder and bowel, depression and numbness. Excessive fatigue is the predominant symptom. It is more prevalent in women than in men.
Tips To Cure MS Naturally
Turmeric a most common spice has special powers in dealing with all sorts of neurological disorders. It is remarkably beneficial in multiple sclerosis. It is rich in curcumin which inhibits the production of a certain protein which is responsible for the destruction of myelin and is a neuroprotective agent.
Its exceptional anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties enhance the nervous functions and effectively deal with the scars and lesions. You can chop raw turmeric into thin slices and store in a jar. Add some lemon juice and salt. Eat two teaspoons with your morning and evening meal every day.
Fish oil is very rich in omega 3 fatty acids which are most essential for the health of myelin. The myelin sheath is chiefly made up of fatty acids and the omega 3 fatty acids present in fish oil prevent further damage, reduce inflammation and heals the sheath. Take one teaspoon of fish oil every day.
Paneer is Indian cottage cheese and is full of health giving benefits. It is widely used in preparing a number of dishes. One of the causes of multiple sclerosis is bad fats which stick to the cell walls and cause damage. Paneer is full of healthy fat and protein which replace the bad fats and increase cellular energy.
Daily intake of paneer will strengthen the body and increase immunity. The best way to make paneer is to boil some milk and add curd to it till the milk disintegrates. Strain the whey and use the paneer.
Rapeseeds are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids. It is high in phytochemicals, vitamin E and omega 3 fatty acids and has strong antioxidant properties. It has health promoting properties and is very good for the health of the myelin sheath. Use rapeseed oil in daily cooking and take one teaspoon of this oil every morning.
Exercise like swimming and aerobics do much to alleviate the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Swimming helps in cooling the body, and maintains its balance and coordination. Aerobics relieve depression and stress, tones the muscles and helps the body to function properly.
