Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease in which the fatty myelin sheaths around the axons of the brain and spinal cord are damaged, leading to demyelination and scarring as well as a broad spectrum of signs and symptoms. Disease onset usually occurs in young adults, and it is more common in females.
Ayurvedic treatment for Multiple Sclerosis is primarily aimed at arresting / slowing down the progress of the illness and helping alleviate the symptoms. However, in many cases remyelination of lesions have been reported after starting Ayurvedic treatment and this offers hope and a possibility for healing.
The major aspects of an Ayurvedic program for MS include specialized diet, healing supplements, yoga and meditation, detoxification treatments and Ayurvedic therapies that nourish the myelin producing cells and also empower the nervous system.
