Vitamin D3, Curcumin Fight MS

Tuesday, 27 December 2011 07:47 AM

Question: How does curcumin rate in the fight against multiple sclerosis?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
There is evidence that curcumin may help reduce the symptoms of MS, but even stronger evidence exists for using higher-dose vitamin D3. In some experimental studies using animal models of the disease (EAE), some flavonoids, such as rutin, actually made the condition worse. Why this is so, we do not know.

In animal studies using vitamin D3, researchers found that higher doses could prevent an MS-like disease. In those who already had the disease, the damage to their spinal cord was dramatically less and their symptoms were significantly improved.

An extract from the herb skullcap called biacalein significantly reduces the inflammation associated with the MS-like disease. It is important to avoid food excitotoxin additives, omega-6 vegetable oils, high-fructose corn syrup, and high-sugar intake.

Drinking a blenderized vegetable green drink can certainly reduce inflammation. Mercury and aluminum both dramatically increase the damage done by MS. Avoid vaccines, contaminated seafood, and high-aluminum foods.
