MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the brain and spinal cord. It damages nerve fibers in the central nervous system. 
  • It is an autoimmune disease. Here, the immune system attacks the protective sheath of the nerve fibers. It causes problems in the communication between the brain and the rest of the parts of the body. 
  • The disease tends to get slowly worse over time and causes permanent damage to the nerves.

CAUSES

The exact cause is not clear, but many genetic and environmental factors have been shown to contribute to the development of Multiple Sclerosis.

RISK FACTORS

    • Age -above  60years
    • Smoking – The person who smokes is at risk of developing MS than the non-smokers.
  • Family history – the risk is high if any of your family members have MS.
  • Infections – Exposure to certain viruses or bacteria, where you live
  • Vitamin D – Low levels of Vitamin D or low exposure to the sun increases the risk of MS.
  • Autoimmune disease – 

SYMPTOMS

  • Numbness or weakness – typically occurs on one side of your body at a time (your legs and trunk).
  • Vision – 
  1. Partial or complete loss of vision – usually in one eye at a time, with pain during eye movement
  2. Prolonged double vision

  • Changes in gait- difficulty or trouble while walking.
  • Loss of balance or coordination.
  • Muscle spasms or weakness.

COMPLICATIONS

  • Paralysis, typically in the legs
  • Epilepsy

DIAGNOSIS

  • Blood tests – to detect specific biomarkers associated with MS.
  • Imaging tests – MRI Scan
  • Lumbar puncture or spinal tap – in this procedure they will analyze the cerebrospinal fluid to detect abnormalities in antibodies that are associated with MS

GENERAL MANAGEMENT

The following life style changes can improve the symptoms of MS:

  • Healthy eating habit – Eating a balanced diet (includes whole grains, fruits, vegetables, green leaves, healthy fats, and lean proteins) can help to improve the symptoms. Avoid unhealthy fats, limit intake of sugars and processed foods.
  • Regular Exercise – Aerobic exercises and muscle strengthening exercises help to reduce the symptoms of muscle weakness and loss of balance by strengthening the muscles.
  • Stress management – Stress can interfere with sleep which can worsen the MS fatigue symptoms. Manage your stress by doing yoga, meditation.
  • Limit alcohol intake 
  • Avoid or reduce smoking

HOMEOPATHIC MANAGEMENT

Homeopathic treatment focuses on improving symptoms, reducing relapses and slowing the disease progression. Homeopathic medicines modulate the deranged immune system to reduce disease activity and progression and to help with the management of relapses.

Homeopathic Medicines for MS – causticum, gelsemium, oxalic acid, phosphorus, natrum muriaticum, conium maculatum, plumbum metallicum, zincum metallicum, cuprum metallicum, syphilinum, cicuta virosa. These Homeopathic medicines are having proven effects on various symptoms and stages of Multiple Sclerosis.
