Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disorder characterized by progressive deterioration of the myelin, or fatty sheaths, that protect the nerve axons in the central nervous system. This deterioration impairs the transmission of nerve impulses, resulting in weakness, numbness, loco motor difficulty, pain, loss of vision, and other health problems. MS is viewed as an autoimmune disorder that transpires when internal antibodies mistakenly direct their "attack" against the body's own nerve cells; the disease often unfolds in intermittent periods of relapses and remissions.

Scientists remain puzzled over the precise cause of MS. Although the existence of an instigating viral agent has been hypothesized, and genetic susceptibility seems to play a role, a variety of environmental factors are believed to strongly influence both the onset and progression of this disease. These factors are believed to be multi factorial, and include dietary, metabolic, immunological and hormonal triggers.

The following GSDL assessments can help pinpoint potential triggers implicated in the etiology of MS, and specifically monitor the effectiveness of complementary therapy for MS patients. For more information click on the links below:

Multiple Sclerosis and Essential Fatty Acids: Researchers have linked the increasing prevalence of MS in modern times, along with its unique pattern of geographical incidence, to dietary imbalances of essential fatty acids.

Multiple Sclerosis and Allergies: Food allergens may trigger the initial cascade of autoimmune events that characterize MS.

Multiple Sclerosis and Melatonin:Disruptions of pineal gland function have been linked not only to the initial development of MS, but with symptoms of depression that often accompany the disease.

Multiple Sclerosis and Oxidative Stress: Destruction of myelin tissue in MS is primarily mediated by reactive oxygen species in the body.

Multiple Sclerosis and Elemental Imbalances: Several critical nutrient and toxic element imbalances are associated with MS symptoms.

Multiple Sclerosis and Amino Acids: Relapses of MS may be closely related to levels of these fundamental protein constituents.
