Can Focusing our Minds

Help to Reduce our 

Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms?

MS mind and repairing ms damage

Can focusing our minds help to aid in reducing ms symptoms?

Our minds have an amazing ability to focus the energy from our bodies to enhance how well our bodies respond to what we instruct them to do. When we focus our minds on doing something specific, like taking a step, walking, standing up or even with reducing how we respond to ms stress, our bodies listen and respond to the brain's instructions that are sent to that part of the body.

This is why whenever a clinical trial or study is performed on a new technique or with testing a new prescription drug that the researchers and doctors alike are always trying to avoid the "placebo effect".

The "placebo effect" is where the power of suggestion is so strong to our minds that if we suggest that something can help our bodies to heal, repair or respond in a particular way that (even if a sugar tablet or sugar water is given in place of the drug or technique being tested) - many people will respond to the positive suggestion and improve -- sometimes in an amazing way -- even if they start out with a very severe health condition.

In most cases of Multiple Sclerosis, MS attacks and causes damage to the myelin sheath along the spinal cord or to the damage in different parts of the brain, that can result in scarring throughout the brain.  The scarring that results in the majority of the cases of Multiple Sclerosis can be seen on mri test results, that are often used for diagnosing Multiple Sclerosis.

It is true, that from a neurological point of view, the scarring that often results in the majority of the cases of MS can interfere with the brain being able to communicate with the rest of the body through the nerve signals being able to travel from the brain to throughout the body.  This is a key problem with the majority of the cases of Multiple Sclerosis.  But that not related as much to what I am discussing here.  What I am referring to about the amazing powers of the mind to help prompt the body to speed up the repair process throughout the body involves how we focus our minds more than the actual neurological function of the brain.

As the medical community is finding out more about the amazing abilities of the mind in reducing symptoms of different diseases, more of the doctors, who use complimentary medicine in their practices, are turning to using more mind focusing techniques or Mind-Body techniques to help reduce the symptoms of ms that their MS patients are experiencing.

Several of the Mind-Body techniques can help those of us that have been given the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis to find relief to quite a few of the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis.

Mind-Body techniques, which have been used effectively for reducing Multiple Sclerosis symptoms, can include any of the following:

ms guided imagery

ms visualization

meditation for Multiple Sclerosis

Additional methods that help to relax and focus the mind can also include:

* various forms of ms meditation, which can include tone therapy - this is where a piece of music is played that uses tones that have been found to help to relax the ind.  This technique can be used to help reduce the over reaction of ms nerves throughout the body.  This type of therapy also helps promote an easier way to do ms meditation, to focus the mind on relaxation and with helping to reduce the effects of ms stress on the body.

* music therapy - where relaxing music is used to help the mind to relax, to free the mind from wandering thoughts, to help free the mind from distractions from distractions.

The point of relaxing the mind is to make it easier for us to focus the mind on allowing the healing energy, that our bodies already produce, to be redirected to whichever part of the body needs the healing energy for repairing the damage, that has resulted from previous MS attacks on our bodies.


ms stress reduced through ms breath therapy

ms tai chi (includes focusing the mind and relaxing while doing slower sets of movements, which help to relax the body, and rebalance energy patterns throughout the body, without doing exercises that are too strenuous for the body to handle.

This allows the body to relax and replenish without adding to ms fatigue, that is often already present in the majority of cases of Multiple Sclerosis.

* ms massage therapy - this helps to relax the entire nervous system and to calm the mind, making it much easier to relax and focus the mind.

* yoga for ms - includes many techniques that help to relax and focus the mind as aiding with meditating using breath therapy, focusing on a tone, or other was of focusing th mind.

* qi gong for ms - this method of exercise also helps to gently work the muscles to help them to stay more limber, flexible and not as tight as they often can become for those that often experience ms spasmsms twitches or ms tremors.

In many of the different methods of Chinese exercises and meditations (such as tai chi, qi gong, yoga and the like), they have come to more of an understanding about how we can use our minds to focus our body's healing energies on the parts of our bodies where the imbalances are found.

There have actually been a few documented cases where a person with one of several severe health conditions actually used different mind-body techniques to focus the mind on visualizing the different parts of the body repairing itself with amazing results.

Reducing ms stress and boosting ms immunity

Our bodies respond much better to us helping to create a healing environment to focus its energies on allowing our body to relax, replenish and repair itself.

To the western mind set, this is a foreign concept, but in quite a few countries throughout the countries that use more of the eastern ways of thinking about the body, this idea has been known for many years to be a way that is practiced regularly as a way to help people to work with their bodies to promote healing, rather than to fight against our bodies and try to force them to do whatever we want the end result to be without actually working with our bodies to help our bodies to reach our end goals.


If we learn to listen more to our bodies, they give us clues as to what is going on internally, that often we don't have any other way of evaluating or viewing these bodily processes while they are occurring.  When we learn to listen to our bodies, it is much easier for us to be able to give our bodies what they need for helping our bodies to recover more easily and more quickly.

Who knows -- maybe there will arrive a period of time where our whole view on human health and how to help our bodies to become healthier instead of sicker may one day become something that is not such a foreign concept, but rather a natural occurrence for those of us with more of the current chronic conditions, like Multiple Sclerosis.
