WEBINAR: Auto Immune Focus 1: Multiple Sclerosis - 23rd Sept
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system (the brain and the spinal cord). It is an auto-immune disease damaging the protective myelin sheath; a process called demyelination. The demyelination disrupts the signals being transmitted from and to the brain, causing them to slow down, become distorted or fail to arrive at all.
It is estimated that there are more than 130,000 people in the UK diagnosed with MS, that's one in 500, with about 130 people diagnosed every week on average. MS is commonly diagnosed in people between the ages of 20 and 30. There are roughly three times as many women with MS as men.
A small number of dedicated medical health professionals have shown how effective it can be to engage MS patients in the appropriate diet, vitamin D, exercise and meditation, making it far less ‘radical’ to suggest that nutritional therapy could play a role in improving the signs and symptoms of those with MS.
However, there are underlying causes that need to be addressed which include toxicity (i.e. toxic metals) and low grade chronic viral infections. Antony will present a summary review effective intervention programmes in those with MS as well as expanding more about the hidden underlying causes.
During this presentation you will learn:
- About the nature of MS, its incidence and impact on lives of sufferers.
- About the risk factors for MS.
- About the underlying causes with a focus on toxic metals and chronic infections.
- About the role of specific foods to avoid in MS.
- About the importance of Vitamin D in MS.
- About the importance of the correct fatty acids to use in MS.
- About the scientific studies using Biotin in MS patients.
- About the key nutritional supplements to consider in those with MS.
