Natural Remedies for Multiple Sclerosis

February 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 174

Multiple Sclerosis is a neurological disorder as the disease affects various parts of the central nervous system by way of destroying the myelin sheaths that cover the nerves. The destruction of the myelin sheaths leaves a form of scar tissues called plaque and this plaque destroys the nerves by hardening them, a process called "sclerosis."

Now, as an autoimmune disorder, this would presuppose that the cells of the body, white blood cells to be exact, attack the myelin sheaths as if they were foreign invaders or substances. Anytime you have white blood cell activity, you have toxicity (of something foreign) on the scene. And when the cells begin to attack the body, you have dharma in the body whereby there is a separation - the cells see themselves as separate from the body and begin to attack the body.

Sclerosis means "hardening." Is not arteriosclerosis a hardening of the arteries? Yes it is. And what makes the arteries harden up? Is it not arterial plaque and mucus? Of course it is! Well, it's the exact thing with Multiple Sclerosis.

With Multiple Sclerosis, you have a hardening of the nerves in the brain due to excess plaque and mucus which dries up.

This plaque and mucus hardens up in the brain and on top of the myelin sheaths (protective nerve coverings) and because this plaque and mucus is acidic, it causes inflammation and the inflammation burns through the myelin sheaths and it is this activity that affects the nerves. It is the equivalent of removing the plastic coating from wire exposing the copper. If water gets on the copper of the wire, what happens, especially when what the wire is connected to is activated or turned on? Answer: It will affect the device that is activated by the wire and malfunction of the device will occur. With Multiple Sclerosis, there will be a malfunction with the human device (body).

In a nutshell, this is what Multiple Sclerosis is and now, this makes healing from Multiple Sclerosis much easier because now we have understanding of the particular problem or pathology. Multiple Sclerosis is a condition that can be healed. You just have to remain consistent with the therapy (remedy).

Diet cannot be overlooked in Multiple Sclerosis. Acid creates mucus and nothing produces more acid or acidic byproduct waste than the big three of meat (Uric Acid), dairy, (Lactic Acid), and Starch (Carbonic Acid) of which many of our diets are composed of.

I can't forget about the connection between aluminum and Multiple Sclerosis. It is true that aluminum deposits collect and store in the brain (within the plaque and mucus). Aluminum (and other toxic heavy metals) has rightly been implicated in Multiple Sclerosis. And no herb counteracts aluminum buildup in the body better than the herb GOTU KOLA.

Gotu Kola itself contains trace amounts of bio-aluminum and because of this, when inside the body, it naturally attracts aluminum oxide unto itself and takes it out of the body. Gotu Kola is one of the best herbs for the brain and memory. It works well with Gingko Biloba!


The sufferer of Multiple Sclerosis should say goodbye to consuming meat, dairy products, and refined grains and starches; in addition to sugar, salt, soda pop, wine/spirits, coffee, all products containing vinegar, and chemical additives (preservatives, flavor enhancers, etc.) to name a few.

Diseased conditions always help to be eradicated or healed when a raw foods and vegan diet and lifestyle is embraced.

Drinking vegetable juice (green veggies) daily will help to loosen up hardened mucus and plaque stuck to the myelin sheaths. Vegetables are very alkaline and greatly counteract acidity throughout the body.

Herbs that counteract mucus by liquefying it for purposes of release from the body include: Mullein Leaf, Yerba Sante, Fenugreek Seed, Comfrey Root, Hyssop, Elecampane, and Talisadi. has a formula called Mucus Reducer. In addition to Mucus Reducer, we offer its counterpart, Acid Neutralizer. These two formulas work great together in busting up and expelling mucus from the body.

Herbs that heal the central nervous system include: Kava Kava, Yerba Maté, Passionflower, Valerian Root, Jatamansi, Blue Vervain, Cinnamon, and Lady's Slipper. TrulyHerbs.Com offers three formulas that can help heal the central nervous system and brain: (1) Brain Flow, (2) Calming Formula, and (3) Central Nervous System Formula.

Lady's Slipper herb (a/k/a Nerve Root) is by far the best herb available for healing from Multiple Sclerosis. It will help one heal from any nervous system disorder (considering one changes ones diet, lifestyle, and thought process) and no other herb helps to repair and rebuild damaged myelin like Lady's Slipper.

Herbs that increase circulation throughout the body include: Cayenne, Ginger, Butcher's Broom, Gingko Biloba, Holy (or Blessed) Thistle, and Gotu Kola.

Deep breathing exercises are helpful for the Multiple Sclerosis sufferer. Deep breathing will enhance and increase oxygen flow and chi to the brain (as well throughout the whole body).

The healing begins once one believes the disease is healable and you yourself (if a sufferer of the disease) believe you can be healed.

Faith (in healing) is essential to the healing process. When people don't heal from a disease, they often times lack the necessary faith and willpower to heal. All modalities must work in harmony. Prayer, belief and faith are also necessary.

Modified diet alone will not heal you. Modified lifestyle alone will not heal you. Thought alone will not heal you. You have to put all the necessary constituents of healing together to successfully heal.

First you start thinking healing and positive thoughts. Then you start visualizing yourself in a healthy and healed state. Then you develop a strong faith and belief in your healing and full recovery. This usually leads to inspiration to do better (now that you know better) which leads you to change (improve) your diet and lifestyle. Every individual act you do in one area enhances and compliments the other areas.

Eating healthy and feeling good about what you eat positively affects your thought process and your faith and belief. This in turn positively affects your lifestyle. This in turn positively affects your emotions and how you feel about yourself. And your body responds in a positive fashion to all of this.

This is the process of true healing!

It's a very positive cycle, people, and it can be done. All you have to do is give it a try. You see, nothing beats a failure but an attempt (try), and really, there are no failures, just results, maybe one you don't desire, but still, at least you receive the necessary information to continue learning and continuing to change for the better.

Thank you for reading!
