Preventing Multiple Sclerosis

Postby Nick » Fri Apr 22, 2005 8:59 pm

I would like to bring to your collective attention the latest webcast by DIRECT-MS. It is entitled Preventing Multiple Sclerosis and is the second in a series of web casts regarding nutrition and Multiple Sclerosis. The focus of the Prevention presentation is how MS can be easily, safely and inexpensively prevented by focusing on protective factors. This is a must see for those people with MS who have children.

Our previous webcast, Nutritional Strategies for Controlling Multiple Sclerosis, addresses similar issues. It presents the probable causes of MS and how to effectively control those elements. A review of the protective factors and how to incorporate them into your lifestyle is also covered.

DIRECT-MS has also published two information booklets, Protect your family from MS and Take Control of Multiple Sclerosis. These booklets are in pdf format and can also be mailed to you, at no cost, upon request. See the mailing address for DIRECT-MS at our home site.

Although I have not read your information, I do not see how you can point to 'probable causes' since, as I understand it, doctors do not yet know and actually have no idea what causes MS. The best they can come up with is small percentage hereditory, some environmental, and some possible latent virus.

Jimmy's right...this is worth a read. Direct-MS was W-A-Y ahead of the medical community on the importance of vit. D. Their brochures are well-written and full of pertinent information. I found them online thru this site. My son has been on vit. D supplements since his Dad was dx. I hope and pray that this will lessen his chances of contracting MS.

My husband and I found that presentation a while back, and it's fantastic.
