Did You Know?




  • Nerve fibers inside and outside the brain are wrapped with many layers of insulation called the myelin sheath. Much like the insulation around an electrical wire, the myelin sheath permits electrical impulses to be conducted along the nerve fiber with speed and accuracy. When myelin is damaged, nerves don't conduct impulses properly.
  • The myelin sheath is partially made of essential fatty acids.
  • Multiple sclerosis is a disorder in which the nerves of the eye, brain, and spinal cord lose patches of myelin.
  • Many investigators believe MS to be an autoimmune disease -- one in which the body, through its immune system, launches a defensive attack against its own tissues.
  • MS patients frequently have allergies.
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common symptom with multiple sclerosis.
  • Infection with bacteria known as C. pneumoniae may increase the risk of developing MS.
  • Those with multiple sclerosis should avoid excessive body heat elevation such as in a sauna, whirlpool, sun bathing or spending time outdoors in high heat.
  • Children who spend more time in the sun have a lower risk for developing multiple sclerosis as adults.
  • Alpha Lipoic acid may prove useful in treating multiple sclerosis by inhibiting MMP-9 activity and interfering with T-cell migration into the Central Nervous System.
  • Curcumin, the principal curcuminoid of the Indian curry spice, turmeric, blocked the progression of multiple sclerosis in laboratory studies.
  • Some treatments for Parkinson's disease have shown excellent results in MS patients.
