Drug Free Multiple Sclerosis Treatments…The Future is Now

July 31st, 2014

Traditional Treatments for MS

Because MS has no cure, focus becomes on treating the problematic symptoms. Traditionally, a course of prescription medications is used to alleviate the symptoms, but the medications do not prevent symptoms from recurring.

With the medications used to treat symptoms of MS, many have side effects that are often worse than the actual symptom. These side effects range from nausea and flu-like symptoms to bladder infections, chest pain, and liver damage.

Deep Brain Stimulation is another treatment used by medical professionals. With this treatment, electrodes are implanted in the brain during a surgical procedure. Computers map the brain to pinpoint the nerves that are causing problems and then pulses of energy stimulate that area to help control symptoms like pain and physical tremors. Some side effects include allergic reaction, brain hemorrhage, mild paralysis, and pain and swelling at the implantation site. As a result, many patients prefer drug-free treatments.

CCSVI – “Liberation” treatment vascular condition linked to neurodegeneration (MS)

Anxiety, balance, bladder dysfunction, bowel problems, brain fog, cognitive changes, depression, dizzyness/vertigo, fatigue, mobility/walking, numbness, pain, sexual dysfunction, sleep issues, spasticity, stiffness, speech, swallowing, tremors and visual weakness are common neurodegenerative symptoms of the extracranial venous blockages known as ccsvi (chronic cerebral spinal venous insufficiency).

This condition is treated by restoring the bloodflow allowing the cerebral spinal fluid to move faster. A simple and safe angioplasty commonly called “The Liberation” treatment that results in most cases in lasting physical and psychological improvements. About 40% of the treated patients experience restenosis or re-closing of the vein, and require a second treatment. The use of paclitaxel medicated balloons reduces that possibility. The treatment allows many patients to live drug-free.

Stem Cell treatment for MS

The benefits of stem cells is being studied around the world. The goal is to have the stem cells grow healthy nerve cells to replace the tissue in the nervous system. Because stem cells are able to renew by themselves, scientists are studying how beneficial they are in helping with tissue repair in damaged nerve cells.

Clinics of the Heart is finding great success treating neurological diseases with stem cells. Using adipose tissue, taken from the layers of fat in the human body, the mesenchymal stem cells are able to grow into other forms of tissue, including bone, muscle, and nerve tissue. The stem cells are implanted into the body through an IV drip, Arterial Catheterization Technique , subcutaneous injection, or all three together.

Once in the body, the stem cells get to work repairing damaged tissue. The proteins in the stem cells protect tissue as it is rebuilt. So far, Clinics of the Heart is seeing positive improvements in patients who report having higher energy levels, increased flexibility, less pain in the joints, and more body strength.

Clearly, stem cell therapies are beneficial to patients who want to avoid dangerous drugs. With ongoing research showing much success, this is the treatment of the future. Or is this the next step…?

Faecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) for autoimmune conditions

Could multiple sclerosis be caused by bacteria? Or to quote Hippocrates “ All disease begins in the gut”….

Recent evidence implicates GI microbiota in the progression of neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Myasthenia Gravis. Patients with MS diagnoses achieved durable symptom reversal with FMT.

Reports of reversal of major neurological symptoms in MS patients after FMT for their underlying GI symptoms. FMT achieved eradication of an occult pathogen driving MS symptoms. The findings that FMT can reverse MS like symptoms suggests a GI infection underpinning these disorders.
