The medical community seems to have little understanding about the causes, including environmental factors and food chemicals like aspartame, that effect Multiple Sclerosis (MS). But, environmental contact, especially during the early years of growing up, may result in MS symptoms in your later years.
Your Immune System
MS is influenced by your immune system. Your immune system is what responds to foreign materials in your body, and it appears to attack the myelin or the coating of the nerves around the axons in your brain and in your spinal cord when toxins are present.
The ingestion of toxins that penetrate the brain, like aspartame, serve to add to toxic reactions within the myelin, and this contributes to MS symptoms.
So, if you are using aspartame and have been diagnosed with MS, detox from the aspartame, and see if your symptoms remain.
Causes of MS
The cause of MS is not one, single thing, but a coming together of genetic predisposition, environmental contacts, commonly starting early in life, and exposure to food toxins, such as food chemicals like aspartame – all these factors appear to be playing a role in health reactions that model textbook MS.
The research on MS remains a mystery in many ways, and we really only partially know about the many factors that are at the root of MS.
One key question: why do some people succumb to the disease and others do not?
MS research shows patterns that people with:
- certain tissue types from certain hereditary backgrounds are more likely to get MS;
- people from Northern European backgrounds are more susceptible than someone from an African background;
- MS is twice as common in women as it is in men;
- people who grow up in the cooler polar regions of the world, whether it be the Northern Hemisphere or the Southern Hemisphere, have two to three times more chance of getting MS than the same person with the same genetic background who grows up in a warmer climate or a tropical area.
Actually, these factors are settings for the disease, but not the triggers.
So, what triggers MS?
Aspartame and MS
Scientists do know certain things about MS. There is more going on with MS than meets the clinical eye.
Some doctors believe that you may have MS and just not know it.
When patients are clinically stable (also known as being healthy with no symptoms), they may still have the disease, but just not manifested. After the development of MRIs, MS appeared for the first time as active MRI lesions, which correlated with the research results of lesions found in laboratory mice fed aspartame.
The best advice for MS worries, stay away from aspartame at all cost.
