Alternative treatments for multiple sclerosis are everywhere, just as for other diseases. And like many who suffer from a chronic illness, you no doubt, have searched for alternative treatments or at least wondered about them.
I'm sure you've looked for therapies to deal with the challenges you have. These challenges can be physical or emotional. You look for things to help you cope with the day to day uncertainties. This is usually where alternative treatments for MS come in to the picture.
We know there's no cure for multiple sclerosis. But as Cir's general practitioner says - "If it helps and doesn't hurt, then go ahead and try it." He did give us his opinion when necessary. We appreciate that he is willing to work with us when it comes to Cir's alternative treatments for multiple sclerosis or any other types of therapies.
Read through the list below. Discuss the ones you want to try with your doctor or neurologist. Realize, however, that many doctors will probably discourage you from using any complimentary alternative medicines also known as CAM. There are some, though who do not mind if you try other things as long as they aren't harming you.
Be prepared for this. They may give you a bit of a hard time, but will ultimately leave the decision of what you take up to you. And many times the alternatives are things you can do along with the traditional medicines available. Anyone can improve their diet or begin exercising. All of these are good for everyone whether you have MS or not.
Be careful also, some people are just out to make a buck on anyone who is vulnerable. They actively seek out people like MSers who will try anything just to get relief. Do your research. And please watch your wallet. Some natural remedies or natural cures are not what they claim to be. They need to be researched thoroughly. Also, be sure to read our disclaimer before trying anything.
