Kerri Abbott Sunshine Coast Naturopath Nutritionist sees many clients seeking Multiple Sclerosis treatment in her clinic. Dietary and lifestyle changes are integral in slowing the process of Multiple Sclerosis. Supplementation in the early stages of MS has been shown to slow and even stop the disease process particularly in younger people.
Research shows diet plays a role in development and progression of MS. The consumption of saturated fats, cholesterol and alcohol promotes an inflammatory response that make the symptoms worse. The inability of the liver to detoxify pesticides and herbicides and heavy metal toxicity (particularly mercury) all play a key role as well. The function of the gut is also indicated as bacteria and fungi in the body have been known to exacerbate symptoms.
DNA Analysis is a valuable tool in determining a personalized dietary and lifestyle plan for the treatment of MS.
Multiple sclerosis is a degenerative disorder of the brain, central nervous system, optic nerve and spinal cord. The body’s immune system malfunctions and produces antibodies that attack the myelin sheath that insulate the nerve fibres of the body. The damage this causes destroys the communication between the nerves.
