Nutrition and Multiple Sclerosis

What Is Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a nervous system disease that affects one’s brain and spinal cord. Multiple sclerosis is said to be a progressive disorder of the nervous system. Multiple sclerosis can affect an individual in so many ways. It damages the myelin sheath, the material that surrounds and protects the nerves.

It can slow down your thinking, it can blur your vision, it can make you feel just a little bit dizzy, lightheaded, usually associated with bladder problems, and it can be a painful disease. You can have numbness and tingling and burning, and yet look beautifully healthy. It is important for people with MS to follow a healthy, well-balanced diet, to supplement well and to reduce ALL exposures to toxins.

The 2012 WHO report summary “Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals” has verified that exposure to EDC’s during early development causes a variety of immune distinctions, including many autoimmune diseases. “The mechanisms by which EDC exposure during development can alter the development of specific issues, leading to increased susceptibility to diseases in later ion life, are just beginning to be understood. It is clear that hormones play an important role in cell differentiation, the process that leads to the development of tissues (nerves) and organs.” [page 12 of the report]  Read More

Pregnancy: Getting all the Needed Vitamins & Minerals for a Healthy Baby!

Vitamins and minerals help give your body the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and repair any damages that may occur throughout your day-to-day life. Eating a healthy, varied diet in pregnancy (and preferably well before conception) will help you get some – but not the optimal levels – of the vitamins and minerals you need for the healthy development of your baby.

It is best to get as many vitamins and minerals from the food you eat, but when you are pregnant you will need to take some supplements as well if you want to ensure optimum health for both mother and child. Do you know what vitamins and minerals are especially important?

While a well balanced diet should give enough of the macro nutrients required for you and your baby during pregnancy, there are many trace elements and co-factors required for good health, that will be almost impossible to get without supplementation with good colloidal minerals. Plus, if you are vegetarian, you also might find it hard to get enough iron and vitamin B12, even with a varied and balanced diet.

For both the mother’s health and the health of her baby, it is advised to take specific multivitamin and mineral supplements, especially ones that include the trace elements, during both pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding after the birth of the baby.

The Natural Way to Better Health for Life

Everyone seems to have a special health remedy these days: Pilates specialists, raw-food specialists, sleep-disorder specialists, air-purification specialists, and of course countless “diet” specialists.

But we learnt first-hand twenty years ago, that good health is not the result of trendy “discoveries” by pseudo-scientists or one luminary’s expertise in an isolated field. And that it isn’t necessarily an accident – although people may accidently develop healthful habits due to upbringing, culture or circumstance.

After more than twenty years examining the effects of a variety of lifestyle factors on the human body, and teaching many thousands of people how to regain good health, we’ve realized even more strongly than before that good health is based on synergy. As we’ve taught for decades, there are multiple components working together to make you feel great, and we incorporated these first in our 2000 joint book 25 Ways You Can Look And Feel Years Younger which has been available more recently in an ebook version.

In this article we bring these essential building blocks together in one powerful resource, so you can personally take responsibility for your own and your families health, once and for all. The book is currently being re-written to bring it up-to-the-minute, and will be republished shortly.
