Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease to that nervous system that affects hundreds of thousands of patients in the U.S. Studies have not proven the exact cause of multiple sclerosis, but research has shown that MS is triggered when the body’s immune system begins attacking myelin. Myelin is what shields nerve fibers, and when it’s damaged, the nerves can also become damaged causing a variety of unwanted symptoms.
Some common symptoms include:
- Difficult walking
- Vision problems
- Chronic pain
- Cognitive and emotional problems
- Sexual dysfunction
These symptoms most commonly appear between the ages of 20 and 40 years of age. Many times, sufferers will have a cyclical cycle of their symptoms becoming worse and then improving.
Treatments for MS vary on the severity of the individual’s condition. Traditional management of the disease rely on medications to ease symptoms. At Stem Cell International, we pride ourselves on the use of more natural healing processes.
