Multiple sclerosis, commonly known as MS, is a disease in which the immune system attacks the protective sheath covering a person’s nerve fibers. This causes communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body via the central nervous system (spinal cord), and ultimately there’s deterioration or damage done to a person’s nerves.
How MS Affects Your Body
MS can affect different nerves and different parts of the body, such that a person with MS might not be able to walk, for example. Now MS can go into remission, so that’s interesting, but the bad news is this: there’s no cure for MS. Treatments, though, can help manage symptoms of the disease.
What are some MS symptoms? A person with MS might have an unsteady gait, numbness in one or more limbs (usually on one side of the body at a time) or “electric-shock sensations” occurring with certain neck movements. There could be vision problems, too, such as blurry vision or the loss of vision, usually in one eye at a time. Other symptoms can include slurred speech, dizziness, fatigue and problems with sexual, bowel or bladder function.
Is there any hope for help with Multiple Sclerosis? The Helen Foundation thinks so– we off Microdose Therapy™ which eliminates pain, fatigue and related inflammation symptoms in days from cortisone-responding diseases.
To use Microdose Therapy™, you must be trained on when, how much and for what reasons to use hydrocortisone, as well as its safe limits of use. The Helen Foundation will prescribe your hydrocortisone and help you use it via telemedicine, our Patient Education Manual and weekly guidance. Your disease intensity will be monitored daily.
For the first four weeks of your plan, you will be taking hydrocortisone daily to eliminate your symptoms. Then, we will teach you how to take five-day doses to prevent reoccurring flares. In doing so, you will consume less hydrocortisone than the maximum safe daily use limit, while still controlling your inflammation and symptoms.
