Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system. MS disrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and the body.

Multiple sclerosis refers to many (multiple) areas of tissue scarring (sclerosis) and damage. The main type of tissue that is damaged by MS is called myelin, the tissue that wraps around nerves and helps nerve fibers send chemical signals throughout the body. This demyelination can cause issues such as vision changes, cognitive changes, mental impairment, lack of coordination, numbness, a sense of shock running through the body, and mood changes, including depression and mood swings. 

There is no single test that is used for diagnosing multiple sclerosis, so multiple tests will often need to be performed. Doctors will usually diagnose MS based on a patient’s symptoms, a physical examination and results from magnetic resonance imaging tests (MRI). 

If you have MS, you may experience periods of time where you feel pretty good. But then your symptoms may flare and you’ll feel worse than ever. This happens because the myelin surrounding nerves may be repaired, then damaged again, then repaired again.

At the Holistic Wellness Center, we are focused on addressing the underlying cause of this nerve damage.  We look at things such as: other autoimmune responses within the body, hormonal imbalances, poor gut health, and systemic inflammation.  We also consider factors such as: underlying chronic infections, mold toxicity, deficiencies of certain nutrients, genetics, and nutrition. 

Symptoms: 

  • Vision changes
  • Depression
  • Cognitive problems
  • Mood swings
  • Lack of coordination
  • Numbness, shock and tingling
  • And more
