    By Dr. Mercola

    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, degenerative disease of the nerves in your brain and spinal column, caused through a demyelization process.​
    Myelin is the insulating, waxy substance around the nerves in your central nervous system.​
    When the myelin is damaged by an autoimmune disease or self-destructive process in your body, the function of those nerves deteriorate over time, resulting in a number of symptoms, including:​
    • Muscle weakness
    • Imbalance, or loss of coordination
    • Astigmatism and vision loss
    • Tremors
    MS may progress steadily, or acute attacks may be followed by a temporary remission of symptoms.
    In the video above, Dr. Terry Wahls tells the inspiring story of how she reversed multiple sclerosis after seven years of deterioration on the best conventional treatments available -- simply by changing her diet!​
    Nutrition for Your Brain and Central Nervous System

    Through her research into MS, Dr. Wahls discovered that, for some unknown reason, in addition to the commonly known symptoms, MS patients' brains also tend to shrink. This roused her curiosity, and led her to research other diseases that have similar brain shrinkage, namely Huntington's, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's Disease. One common denominator is poorly functioning mitochondria. Mitochondria are like little 'batteries' in your cells that manage the energy supply to the cell, and unless you consume the correct nutrients, eventual mitochondrial malfunction is the obvious result.​
    She discovered that three nutrients in particular are essential for proper mitochondrial function:​
    1. Animal-based omega-3 fat
    2. Creatine
    3. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) or better yet the reduced version known as Ubiquinol
    Just by adding those three to her diet, her decline began to slow. But she wasn't improving, so she continued sleuthing through the medical research in search for an answer. When she discovered the Institute for Functional Medicine, Dr. Wahl began to find more clues.
    As mentioned earlier, myelin is an insulating, waxy substance that sheathes the nerves in your central nervous system. Your myelin also needs specific nutrients to function properly, such as:​
    • Vitamin B1
    • Vitamin B9
    • Vitamin B12
    • Animal-based omega-3 fat
    • Iodine
    Furthermore, the neurotransmitters in your brain need sulfur and B6 for optimal functioning. Eventually, Dr. Wahls designed her own eating plan, based on the nutrients she now knew she needed for optimal mitochondrial-, myelin-, and neurotransmitter function, because while your body can create some nutrients, others must be provided through your diet.

    western medicine is just disguised drug dealing, yes there are pills that help some acute conditions. But it's not based on curing so to speak, hey this is capitalism YOU MAKE YOUR MONEY ON THE COMEBACK or in this case the "refills".
    We've had the cures for centuries. Great for the person who will get better now.
