Tips for Battling Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of a person’s central nervous system. It’s thought to be an autoimmune disorder where the body attacks itself by mistake.

There is no cure for MS. There are treatments for it, however, and these treatments are meant to slow the progression of the disease, manage its symptoms, help sufferers recover from attacks, and reduce new radiographic and clinical relapses.

How to Deal With Multiple Sclerosis

For those dealing with MS attacks, corticosteroids (like oral prednisone) may be prescribed to help reduce nerve irritation. Some people resort to plasma exchange, where the liquid portion of part of their blood is removed and adjusted in such a way (with albumin) that when it’s put back in the body it’s supposed to help people feel better.

Some other treatments for MS include interferon beta medications (meant to decrease inflammation while increasing nerve growth), monoclonal antibodies (to help decrease MS brain lesions and worsening symptoms) and drugs like teriflunomide, dimethyl fumarate, monomethyl fumarate, fingolimod, etc. (to help reduce a person’s relapse rate).

While many people try different drugs and treatments to battle MS, one of the superior alternatives to all the aforementioned options is Microdose Therapy, which eliminates pain, fatigue and related inflammation symptoms in days from cortisone-responding diseases like MS.

Practically speaking, those with MS can benefit from getting plenty of rest/sleep, eating a balanced diet, relieving stress and exercise. These are all things that can make anyone healthier, but they especially matter to people with MS. By making some adaptations to daily life, a person diagnosed with MS can live a long, active and healthy life.
