About MS


What is Multiple Sclerosis

A neurological disorder affecting the insulation (myelin) surrounding nerves in the brain and spinal cord. Destruction of the myelin causes scar-like tissue (scleratic plaque) to form. This demyelination interferes with normal transmission of nerve impulses resulting in various symptoms. MS is considered to be an auto-immune disease.

How does MS manifest?

The majority of people are not severely debilitated by MS:

  • Most people remain ambulatory their whole lives.
  • Most people are able to live relatively normal and healthy lives.
  • Some may experience only a few mild, fleeting symptoms.
  • Some may experience a series of attacks with partial or complete recoveries or remissions.
  • Some may experience symptoms that remain stable over many years
  • Others may experience symptoms that worsen quickly or gradually over time.
  • Some have symptoms and medical complications that may result from inactivity, the effects of medication, or poor health habits. These are not necessarily a direct result of MS itself.
  • It’s common for people to have different combinations of symptoms, sometimes in recurring episodes and sometimes with progressive severity
  • MS is often characterized by an erratic or unpredictable course.

Cause & Cure


Cause and cure of MS

The Traditional perspective is that MS is caused by damage to the myelin sheath. This is the protective covering that surrounds nerve cells. When this nerve covering is damaged, nerve signals slow down or stop. This is caused by the body's own immune cells which attacks the Central nervous system. This can occur in any area of the brain, optic nerve or spinal cord. It is unknown what exactly causes this to happen. The most common view is that a virus or gene defect, or both, are to blame.

2) Diet and MS

Multiple Sclerosis, The Cause - John A. McDougall, M.D. : When the subjects of multiple sclerosis and diet are mentioned in the same sentence, the reaction from most health professionals is to dismiss the connection as being absolutely ridiculous. How could something as simple as what we eat be involved with such a mysterious disease as multiple sclerosis?

5) Water Therapy

Hydration and MS Exercise in a Hydrotherapy Pool: It didn't take me long to realize that I'd been missing something very important—a good way to burn enough calories to keep my weight in check, while experiencing the pleasant psychological effects of a regular exercise regimen. So I followed the first part of my doctor's advice—to take Tylenol—and found that my strength gradually returned as my fever receded. Later, when I was feeling better, I followed his second suggestion—to take a long, cool shower—and I was amazed to find that I was still stronger! Although not everyone with MS experiences such a dramatic response to changes in temperature, knowledge of this temperature effect is extremely important for those who do.

8) Laughter Therapy

How Laughter Can Help People with Multiple Sclerosis A new clinical trial is under way to study how laughter can help ease depression and anxiety for people with neurological disorders. Laughing may be a way to a healthier lifestyle for people with neurological diseases. That was the premise of a recent study that took place in Israel. Neurological disorders, including multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson’s disease, can cause anxiety and sleep issues, among other symptoms. The researchers of the study, which focused on people with Parkinson’s, said laughter therapy may be an effective way for people with these conditions to feel better. There is also a new clinical trial that will study the effects of laughter therapy on people with a variety of neurological disorders, including MS.

More ways to overcome ms

After travelling the world the Beyond MS Association has found dozens of ways to improve, overcome, and even cure Multiple Sclerosis. A list of our most important findings are listed below.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture and Chinese Medecine TCM is a standardized version of the type of Chinese medicine that was practiced before the Chinese Revolution that is based on several ancient beliefs. An important one is the Daoist belief that the human body is a miniature version of the universe. Another belief is that a vital energy, “Qi,” flows through the body and performs multiple functions to maintain health. TCM practitioners believe that chronic pain results from blockage or imbalance of Qi, and that their role is to correct or balance its flow. Other concepts, such as the Yin/Yang—harmony between opposing, complementary forces that support health—and the Five Element Theories are equally important to TCM.3 In the Yin/Yang theory, practitioners describe the Yin or Yang character of health, such as its location (interior/exterior), temperature (cold/hot), and amount (deficient/excess). The Yin/Yang illustrates polarity and the notion that one characteristic cannot exist without the other. The Five Elements symbolically represent the stages of human life and explain the functioning of the body. Knowledge of these concepts is important to foster an understanding of TCM. However, the purpose of the current tutorial is to examine specific TCM practices and whether they are helpful in chronic pain management.

Complementary therapy can be offered alongside standard treatment, with alternative medicine offered instead of conventional, evidence-based treatments. Aromatherapists, who specialize in the practice of aromatherapy, utilize blends of therapeutic essential oils that can be issued through topical application, massage, inhalation or water immersion to stimulate a desired response.

Spiritual healing is a technique where subtle energies are used for healing. These types of energies have been recognized by the western medicine only in the recent past. Many eastern medical systems have recognized and have been using these types of forces or energies for hundreds and thousands of years. Other names which are also used for these energies are Chi and Prana. These energies are related to and are directed by a person's consciousness. Due to this, a person can accept healing forces directly in the presence of the healer or at a distance from the healer.

Quantum Healing

Dolores Cannon’s method of hypnosis, Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique℠ (QHHT®), involves inducing an individual into the Somnambulistic state of trance through visualization. A state which under ordinary circumstances is experienced only twice daily: the moment just before you become consciously awake and the moment just before you fall asleep. Historically, hypnotists have avoided conducting research with subjects in this state because of the often strange and inexplicable results that are recorded. It is from this deep state that one is able to experience a profound healing.

Looking at the cause of MS

My personal journey with MS


Like many people who get MS, I began experiencing unexplainable and terrifying symptoms such as tingling throughout my body, extreme weakness, paralysis, chronic fatigue, double vision, depression, inability to concentrate, and many others.

After forty years of these symptoms I've come to accept the unexpected. But I still want to know what was the cause of my MS..

One of the good things about having MS is that it has compelled me to ask some very fundamental questions. Questions such as: What is the purpose of my life? Why does illness and MS exist? And the most important one: Why did I get MS?

I learned that the human body is the most complex and wonderful creation in the Universe, and within it is an energy source. This energy source not only gives us form, and defines our unique character and personality, but life and meaning as well … let’s call it the Life Force. One aspect of the Life Force is its ability to disturb normal bodily functions after being overcome by extreme stress or a traumatic episode. It seems to me that MS could be caused, or at least worsened by, a disruption of my Life Force.  I know such an experience happened to me when I was eighteen years old. Two years later my first MS symptoms appeared.

When the body is overcome by extreme stress or a traumatic episode our Life Force can be disrupted, resulting in the disturbance of normal bodily functions. 

I believe there are multiple factors involved in causing MS, including genetic makeup and susceptibility; our geographic location, both today and where we grew up; the introduction of a pathogen, (possibly a virus, bacteria, etc.); and our environment (stress level, pollution, food, lifestyle, etc.). These all combine in such a way that our Life Force is compromised and we develop Multiple Sclerosis.

I also believe that by addressing these factors we can help to stop, or even reverse the onslaught of Multiple Sclerosis.


Managing MS – A Holistic Approach

Humans are the most complex and wonderful creations in the Universe and are comprised of a three-fold constitution:

The Body

Our physical body is an exquisite assemblage of living organ systems functioning together as a true miracle. For doctors and materialists, the body is viewed as merely a biochemical machine of carbon, calcium and other materials, made up of two-thirds water, and needing to be fixed when it breaks down.

We believe the body is much more than just a physical structure. It is a direct expression and extension of the Spirit and Mind. Not having the challenge of MS would certainly allow us an easier life, but believe it or not, it is our choice to have an ill or physically challenged body. Multiple Sclerosis is an opportunity to achieve maximum growth, and is a gift enabling us to realize our true divinity!

The Mind
Many think that the brain is the mind, but this is incorrect. The brain is a physical object that can be seen with the eyes, photographed, or operated on in surgery. The mind, on the other hand, is not a physical object. It cannot be seen, nor photographed, or repaired by surgery. We tend to think that the brain is the seat of the mind while in fact our consciousness and mind can be found throughout our body. The mind operates through the means of consciousness and is the way in which the Spirit, the Body and the world are linked.

The Spirit
The human spirit is the essence of every individual. It is the inner Source responsible for our existence. Only the physical body becomes old and feeble. The spirit remains forever young. Old age, infancy and youth, sickness and health, sorrows, joys, grief, and problems, are all things that pass, as do all external conditions and experiences of the world.


If we recognize the existence of our own spirit, old age, sorrow and suffering do not throw us into a state of fear, worry, or grief. If we can take a larger, holistic view of reality then the problems of life are manageable and we can realize our true selves.
