Treating MS with Supplements

Tuesday, 29 May 2012 08:22 AM

Question: You wrote that vitamin C has been shown to be effective in treating some patients with multiple sclerosis. Is there any known harm that can come from trying this treatment?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

In general, the answer is no, but there are some rare side effects. Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease, but its major pathological effects appear to be chronic activation of microglia and immunoexcitotoxicity. A number of natural substances reduce this process. These include curcumin, quercetin, ellagic acid, NAC, magnesium, DHA oil, EGCG (an extract from green tea) and vitamin D3. All of these substances have been shown to improve symptoms in multiple sclerosis patients, and when they are used together, one sees much better results.
A change in diet is also essential. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables, removing glutamate additives, and removing excessive omega-6 oils from one’s diet will help against MS.
