At times, when a family member or friend, is officially diagnosed with MS; finding blame or creating more reality illusions seem very typical. The first step in seeking support and resolution would be to research continuously. After awhile, this method may seem old, but never to the Medical and Alternative Community.
“Although multiple sclerosis (MS) was first diagnosed in 1849, the earliest known description of a person with possible MS dates from fourteenth century Holland. An unpredictable disease of the central nervous system, MS can range from relatively benign to somewhat disabling to devastating as communication between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted… What Recent Advances Have Been Made in MS Research?
Many advances, on several fronts, have been made in the war against MS. Each advance interacts with the others, adding greater depth and meaning to each new discovery. Four areas, in particular, stand out.
Over the last decade, our knowledge about how the immune system works has grown at an amazing rate. Major gains have been made in recognizing and defining the role of this system in the development of MS lesions, giving scientists the ability to devise ways to alter the immune response. Such work is expected to yield a variety of new potential therapies that may ameliorate MS without harmful side effects…Other tools have been developed that make the painstaking work of teasing out the disease's genetic secrets possible. Such studies have strengthened scientists' conviction that MS is a disease with many genetic components, none of which is dominant. Immune system-related genetic factors that predispose an individual to the development of MS have been identified, and may lead to new ways to treat or prevent the disease…What Research Remains to be done?
The role of genetic risk factors, and how they can be modified, must be more clearly defined. Environmental triggers, such as viruses or toxins, need to be investigated further. The specific cellular and subcellular targets of immune attack in the brain and spinal cord, and the subsets of T cells involved in that attack, need to be identified. Knowledge of these aspects of the disease will enable scientists to develop new methods for halting-or reversing and repairing-the destruction of myelin that causes the symptoms of MS.”
In other US Research, the following topics and conversations are addressed, either physician to patient, or online documentations:
MS can be known to have an element of attacking itself,
MS can appear from no where, and disappear from no where,
MS has viral properties, still under research and compared to other illnesses,
MS can appear in early childhood, without both the child’s or parent’s awareness,
MS is known to affect more women than men, but in the 1800’s more men than women,
80% of a physician’s recommendations in Michigan alone, are listed within C.A.M (Complementary Alternative Medicine) Remedies,
Half the patients offered Holistic remedies prefer conventional methods as primary, and CAM as Secondary. This may be either from the presentation or casualness of the Recommendation,
Metaphysically, MS is linked to stubborn ways, pain, and past sorrows. Within Medical Science, a Physician will call this Post-Trauma. Post-Trauma comes in many departments, some unknown.
