Fibromyalgia is a chronic disease characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and tenderness. The exact cause of Fibromyalgia is currently unknown, however, several theories suggest that genetics, infections, and stress play a large role in its development. According to research, neurological changes such as pain receptor sensitivity and neurotransmitter imbalances may play a significant role in… Read More Fibromyalgia – Effective Natural Treatment

Fatty Liver Disease – Natural/Ayurvedic Treatment

Believe it or not, fatty liver has become a shockingly common disease. Nowadays, we consume foods which lack nutrients responsible for regulating our body functions, one of which is sugar metabolism, which results in a condition known as Insulin Resistance. Studies have linked Insulin resistance to the development of fatty liver disease. Insulin resistance a… Read More Fatty Liver Disease – Natural/Ayurvedic Treatment

GABA – Increase It Naturally

GABA – Gamma-aminobutyric acid, is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that literally calms down the central nervous system’s electrical activity. This assists in managing neuropathic pain, seizures and is particularly needed in conditions like multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, shingles and neuropathy. GABA is the main mechanism via which the drug Gabapentin, a powerful pain relieving drug, works. GABA… Read More GABA – Increase It Naturally

In terms of disease, this neurotransmitter tends to be reduced… Read More Acetylcholine – Increase It Naturally

Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 4)

The 4th part of MS treatment involves correcting Insulin resistance and countering the effects of stress. MS is characterized by an auto-immune reaction that involves the breakdown of Myelin (the insulation around neurons) via the process of neuro-inflammation. However, the fact that all MS patients tend to also have insulin resistance, gives us the clue… Read More Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 4)

Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 3)

In part 1 and part 2, I discussed methods of reducing neuro-inflammation in order to slow down disease progression, as well as a way to stimulate nerve growth and significantly enhance neurological health. These factors play an important role in triggering the process of healing, however, in order for the brain to completely heal, we… Read More Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 3)

Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 2)

In part 1,  I spoke about the importance of reducing/inhibiting neuro-inflammation, in order to slow down the progression of multiple sclerosis. By slowing down the progression, we give the brain time to heal and to start regenerating myelin, thus improving neuron health and reducing severity of symptoms. The second part of treatment involves assisting the… Read More Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 2)

Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 1)

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an auto-immune and neuro-degenerative condition in which the body’s own immune system attacks and destroys the protective sheath that covers nerve fibers by inducing neuro-inflammation. This protective sheath is called “Myelin”. Myelin is a fatty substance that insulates the axons of nerve cells, and protects it. As Myelin degrades, is causes… Read More Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 1)
