Multiple Sclerosis is a disease where the myelin sheath is being attacked and or deteriorating. Your myelin sheath is a protective layer of fat that goes over your nerves. This fat layer is also how the brain sends signals to fingers, toes, feet, and legs to name a few to tell them to move.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common progressive neurologic disease of young adults worldwide.2,3 Current estimates suggest that 300,000 to 400,000 individuals are affected in the United States, but this is based largely on revisions of estimates from older data. It is stated to be an autoimmune disease where the body is attacking the myelin sheath, spinal cord, and nerves.
I have discussed autoimmune before, this usually happens with lack of nourishment or toxicity. Your body uses your fat to store toxins in it to keep them from impacting essential organs. Which could deplete fat to nourish the myelin sheath. The toxicity also will damage cells and organs and overwhelm the body. Your major detoxifying organ is your liver, the liver also happens to be part of your ability to digest fats. Which impacts how we can nourish the protective layer on the nerves.
Toxicity can have a major impact on the brain and nerves as many toxins are neurotoxins. When the body finds a toxin in the fat or tissue it is going to go to great lengths to remove it attacking the toxicity. This is oftentimes why our body attacks itself. We see it as a negative but yet we can't see the toxins stored in that tissue.
We nowadays inject toxins into our skin, we eat them in our foods and drinks. We oftentimes do not even see that it is them as a toxin. Botox, yet we do it for beauty. MSG is filling out foods with flavor so we consume them. Aspartame is a non-sugar sweetener so we can have sweet tasting things without the weight of feeling we ate sugar. Sucralose which we get in Splenda is should be listed as an insecticide, it is a neurotoxin and is regarded as a chemical cousin to DDT. Sucralose is a chlorinated compound.
Aluminum is found in drinking water, baking powder, cookware, antacids, deodorants, and vaccines. Diacetyl for all you popcorn lovers, this was a weakness of mine for years, Diacetyl does extensive damage to the brain and peripheral nerves. It has the ability to cross the Blood-Brain-Barrier (BBB) and cause direct injury to brain cells. Research has shown that it increases beta-amyloid clumping, an Alzheimer's precursor. Normally you won’t see Diacetyl on a food label, instead, you will see “artificial butter flavor” or “natural flavors” on the label, which is your cue that the product contains this neurotoxin.
This is why even "healthy people" come to my office and can't believe they are toxic. Even your healthy foods which most consider being plant-based can be filled with toxins that have been sprayed on the soil and plants. The first step is to avoid the toxins as much as possible, eat organic, and use natural products to clean, natural products on your body as well. The next step is to nutritionally support the body specifically the liver, detoxify organs, and consume foods to help the body to flush these toxins.
If you suffer from MS, Fibromyalgia, Lymes, severe nerve pain, or any chronic disease the likely hood is that you may need to flush out toxins and find where you are getting these toxins from. You can assess these things and start to switch out healthier options.
If you are needing more assistance I can put together a protocol and ways to nourish the body to fight the toxins. I can do a scan to look at what toxins we are dealing with.
