Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is characterized by a chronic inflammatory process, which destroys the myelin sheath of the nerves. MS is an autoimmune disease, often postinfectious, which develops depending on the genetic disposition.
Women (70%) are affected more often than men (30%). The peak of the age range seems to be decreasing in the last decades as more and more younger people are affected.
The following factors seem to be involved with MS:
50-times higher incidents of the disease in the northern hemisphere compared with those areas close to the equator.
HLA: rare with HLA A3 and B7 more frequent with HLA-DR2 and HLA DQ2 (most important marker) and HLA-DR3 (in connection with HLA-A1 and HLA-B8)
Possible viruses are: Measles, Canine Distemper, Mumps, Parainfluenza 1 & 3, Rubella, Herpes Virus I and II, Varicella Zoster, Epstein Barr virus, Cytomegalovirus, Human Herpes Virus Type 6, Coronavirus, Adenovirus.
Estrogen: as Hormone Replacement Therapy and / or birth control pill, could also possibly play a role.
In 1997 for the first time Human Herpes Virus type 6 was found in the spinal fluid of MS patients.
During an MS episode this virus titer rises, which indicates a viral activation.
There seems to be a connection between MS and Hepatitis B vaccinations.
One area that unfortunately has never been researched is the possibility of chronic toxic loads deriving from the teeth (heavy metals and bacteria from devital teeth) causing a weakening of the blood-brain barrier.
Mercury, silver, and tin are highly toxic and can damage the central nervous system.
Some researchers have found a connection between MS and destructive fatty acids.
People with any kind of inflammatory degenerative disease, whether it is MS or Rheumatism, should maintain a linoleic acid poor diet.
It has been proven that certain substances promote inflammation. One of the substances is arachidonic acid, which we could call the “fuel for the inflammation”. In food we find a pre-form of arachidonic acid in the form of linoleic acid.
Unfortunately there is no book in English available at this time. We leave a link to a German Book from Dr. Olaf Hebener about the theory of Linoleic Acid being connected to MS
Dr. Olaf Hebener: Fundamente der Hoffnung.
A very descriptive explanation of the theory that the “wrong” fat molecules can be harmful is given in the film „Lorenzo’s oil“. Based on the real-life case of the Odones family, the story concerns 5-year-old Lorenzo, suffering mightily from an apparently incurable and degenerative brain disease called A.L.D (Adrenoleukodystrophy). His parents, an economist (Nick Nolte) and a linguist (Susan Sarandon), refuse to accept the received wisdom that there is no hope, and set about learning biochemistry to pursue a cure on their own. The film becomes an intriguing scientific mystery mixed with a story of pain, grief, and the strain on the two adults. Amazon.com (US) Amazon.co.uk (UK)
Usually MS occurs in active relapses with intermediate symptom free pauses. Symptoms can be: Sensitivity, motoric weaknesses, inflammation of the visual nerve, malfunction of the bladder muscle, language disturbances.
The therapy of course is individual in each case, the therapeutical principles are:
Detox therapy / activation of elimination organs (kidney, liver, skin, lymphatic system), removal of amalgam fillings where needed, treatment of viral loads according to diagnostic results, Micro immunotherapy , detox of vaccinations. We are able to give homoeopathic dilutions of body-own nerve regeneration factors such as TGFß (Transforming Growth Factor), CNTF (Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor) and GDNF (Glial Cell Line Derived Neurotrophic Factor) they are expected to help with the regeneration of the damaged nerves.
Rapuani®can be used for the treatment of the inflammation of the visual nerve. A so-called „immune modulation“ can be started with Isopathic medicines according to Professor Enderlein (Sanum® ); often we do this along with the Detox treatment. Our most important therapy is the micro immunotherapy.
Do we have successes?“ this question is asked very often, please check or answer: Success
