Nutrition For The Brain (Evidence-Based)

When treating a condition, it is important to focus on nutrition in addition to the physiological irregularities manifesting in the disease and their symptomatic management. The body is literally a product of nutrition, and the brain is no exception. The most common brain disorders are characterized by neurodegeneration – the breakdown and damage of brain… Read More Nutrition For The Brain (Evidence-Based)

How To Reduce Spasticity

Often referred to as a feeling of “stiffness”, Spasticity is a condition in which muscles remain contracted for an extended period of time. It can range from a feeling of mild tightness of the muscles to painful muscle spasms that are uncontrollable. It can be painful or painless and may result in involuntary movements of the limbs. This can prevent muscles from being stretched which results in trouble with movement and possibly speech.… Read More How To Reduce Spasticity

Multiple Sclerosis – Evidence-Based Remedies

Multiple Sclerosis symptoms can often mimic that of other conditions such as Fibromyalgia, making it a difficult condition to diagnose. Patients with this condition often seek out natural alternatives as the standard treatment options are not always as effective as patients need them to be. It is not uncommon for patients to try natural remedies… Read More Multiple Sclerosis – Evidence-Based Remedies

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)
