An autoimmune condition of the central nervous system, multiple sclerosis (MS) affects the myelin in the brain and spinal cord.
Symptoms are varied, and can include pain, weakness, balance issues, vision difficulties, sensory loss, fatigue, and spasticity.
Like many other autoimmune diseases, the course of MS varies for each individual and often includes exacerbations and remissions.
MS is an illness that is often treatable. We begin by assessing your nutritional status and determining a plan that will give you the best dietary guidelines to support your nervous system and overall health.
This generally includes high-dose essential fatty acids along with antioxidants, as well as specific dietary guidelines to minimize inflammation.
On a deeper level, as we work together we will explore mental and emotional factors that may contribute to your health issues.
Perhaps something is paralyzing you from moving forward on a psychological level, or perhaps past life events are unresolved and contributing to your symptoms.
In addition to naturopathic care for MS, many of our patients find that adding craniosacral therapy treatments to their routine significantly improves their well-being.
