Preventing Multiple Sclerosis webcast

Postby Nick » Fri Apr 22, 2005 7:53 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.

Cheers
Nick

Hi Nick,

This information is very interesting. Of course as everyone should know, proper eating habits should be at the top of everyone's lists wether they have MS or not. Also, most times illness is unavoidable.

The booklets are well versed and attractive to look at.

Proper eatig habits, that's the rub. What is conventionally considered as healthy or proper can be tramautic for an individual predisposed to MS.

I contend that most ilnesses are preventable. Of course it is difficult to prove the effectiveness of a preventative therapy but read on. This paperdiscusses how migrants from a high MS prevalent area reduced their prevalence by as much as 75% by moving to a sunnier climate.

Was it vitamin D or some other factor that can be held accountable for this success? By considering the known immunoregulatory properties of vitamin D it certainly is plausible that even incidental sun exposure in a tropical area could provide enough vitamin D to act as a protective feature.

Consider too this recent Harvard study which found a preventative effect from MS of only 400 IU/d of vitamin D.

There's much more of course but you be able to envision that corroboration of many different sources of evidence paint a compelling reason to consider vitamin D as an effective preventative measure.

Cheers
Nick

No problem!

FYI: I picked the screen name OneEyeBlind because my first MS symptom was Optic Neuritis. I lost sight in my right eye for about 6 months. The good news is I did get it back. And I do have a sense of humor! No hard feelings. Really!

C-ya around Sinbad!
