What Causes Spasms,

 Twitching and Tremors

 in Multiple Sclerosis?

ms spasms, twitching multiple sclerosis, multiple sclerosis spasticity, ms tremors

What causes spasms, twitching and uncontrollable movements in those of us that who are given the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis?

There are a few possible causes that can account for these type of multiple sclerosis responses. 

There are a few explanations by the medical community that can include:

Possible Nerve Damage - the more severe a ms spasm is, there is a much higher possibility of there being multiple sclerosis nerve damage present, but this is not always the case with every case of MS that has more extreme spasms, twitches or tremors. 

There are alternative and natural ways that can help with reducing the ms spasticity and with helping to stimulate the nerves to work on repairing the damaged nerves, but reversing ms nerve damage can take time and effort.  Ways that we have found that can help the body to work on repairing or regenerating nerves where there has been damage as a result of Multiple Sclerosis can include:

* changing the ms diet

* reducing ms stress

* reducing ms fatigue

* increasing ms exercise

* adding ms juicing

* adding taking ms vitamins 

* increasing skin exposure to sunlight - when the sunlight shines on the skin, our skin reacts to the sunlight by producing vitamin D in our skin   We have several parts of our bodies that rely on having high enough levels of vitamin D in our bodies.  Vitamin d deficiencies has strong protective properties in helping to prevent the occurrence of Multiple Sclerosis.  Once MS is present, the higher levels of vitamin D are needed even more by the body, since vitamin D helps to boost the immune system and helps to reduce or maybe even prevent ms insomnia.

* Eliminate Negative Thinking and Negative Talk - we often can have a tendency as people to talk about ourselves and other people in a way that is more gossipy and negative way.  This is counter productive to helping our bodies to heal from the damage that is often caused by Multiple Sclerosis, since whether we know it or not - our bodies listen to every word that we say, think or hear.  Since our bodies require huge amounts of energy to heal, we need to do all that we can to focus positive healing energy towards our bodies instead of draining away from our bodies the limited resources of energy each day that we use that is desperately needed by our bodies for hem to heal themselves.

* Allow ourselves to Learn to Live Life Again - joining MS support groups, finding MS blogs, MS forums, or MS message boards to get answers to your questions about MS and learning how to reconnect with other people again (after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis) can be challenging.  We all need other people, whether we think we do or not.  It may take some time to learn how to live life again after MS has changed your life, but don't allow MS to take away your reasons for living and enjoying life again.  Find a way to get involved in living life again.  Volunteer somewhere or join some type of social group, just to develop new friendships and redevelop the areas of your life where you allowing ourselves to learn how to live life again.

Extreme MS Vitamin Deficiencies - the medical community is finding that many cases of Multiple Sclerosis can result in vitamin deficiencies.  More extreme vitamin deficiencies in magnesium and calcium have been found to increase the severity and the frequency of the appearance of muscle tightness, ms muscle spasms and muscle cramping in the average person, but for those of us with Multiple Sclerosis, magnesium and calcium deficiencies can cause often much more severe problems with multiple sclerosis spasms,multiple sclerosis tremors, or ms spasticity. 

Elevated Levels of Heavy Metals and other Toxins - our bodies can be having problems with having problems with not detoxifying from heavy metals and other toxins as they should on a daily basis.

Many of the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis can be reduced, simply by helping the body to get rid if toxins more easily.  MS spasms, ms twitching and multiple sclerosis tremors can be reduced to a large extent by helping our bodies to detoxify better.

* Taking Chlorella (a green sea algae) helps to reduce heavy metal levels in the body, including mercury, aluminum, lead and other metals.

* Taking a powder made from barely grass (a green grass plant) can help to reduce spasms, since this plant naturally contains more magnesium.

Magnesium deficiency has been found to cause leg, hand and other spasms.  MS can set the body up for having many vitamin deficiencies because so much of the Central Nervous System and other bodily processes are so out of balance.

* Taking the herb milk thistle can also help ease the burden on the liver to help to detoxify the blood better and help the liver to detoxify the body better.  Taking the herb milk thistle also helps to reduce the amount of stress that is placed on the liver when you are trying to increase how well your body detoxifies from toxins. 

* Taking Extra Magnesium with Calcium (take the calcium and magnesium in a 1 to 1 ratio or until bowel tolerance is reached -- you take enough magnesium until your poop is starting to become softer and more watery then you reduce the amount you are taking of the magnesium a little to keep you from actually getting diarrhea).

Other Vitamin Deficiencies - because magnesium and calcium need more of certain other vitamins to be present at high enough levels to aid in absorption, deficiencies in one or more of these vitamins can also contribute to the presence of more frequent ms spasms.  The list of helper vitamins can include
vitamin D, vitamin C, B complex, B1 (thiamine), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (Pyridine), magnesium, calcium and zinc. 

Taking vitamin supplements can he helpful in reducing the spasms, including taking calcium, magnesium and vitamin D, but I have found that for my own case of Multiple Sclerosis, taking vitamin supplement powders that are made from whole foods helps better than taking vitamin supplements all of the time, whenever the spasms and twitching become too overwhelming.

Another way of helping our bodies to function better overall is to grind green leafy vegetables, including kale or spinach, along with grinding other vegetables such as carrots and beets to help our bodies to detoxify from heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, aluminum, etc.).

Grinding whole foods, especially vegetables and drinking it can help give our bodies a boost by helping to provide a broader range of vitamins and nutrients that can help speed healing multiple sclerosis nerve damage and help our bodies to repair more quickly.

If grinding whole foods and drinking them on a more consistent basis over a longer period of time, this can help our bodies so much more than taking large handfuls of vitamins.  In the long run it is also cheaper to buy more vegetables and fruit than to pay for vitamins and other supplements that are more and more synthetically made rather than being more whole food nutrients that are just concentrated from food sources. 

Taking the green sea algae, called Chlorella, can also help our body to do a much better job in ridding our bodies of toxins, by aiding our bodies natural detoxifying mechanisms in functioning better than than they did before we started to take the Chlorella.

All of these changes can help with reducing how severe and how frequently we see the multiple sclerosis  spasms occurring on a regular basis, but they don't all need to be used  or done at the same time, since some of the effects of different vitamins and herbs can sometimes overlap in their effects on the body.

Check with your doctor before using any herbs or vitamins to attempt to reduce your particular symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. I would recommend finding and working with a doctor that has experience using herbs to help to reduce the symptoms of MS.  Your doctor can run tests to determine which vitamin deficiencies that you may be having a problem with and recommend which vitamins and herbs can help you the most for reducing your MS symptoms.  

Herbs can be harmful to your body if taken in a combination that your body is unable to handle, so find an herbalist or a doctor to consult before taking any herbs to see if your particular combination of MS symptoms make it useful or even possible for you to take any particular herb.

If the proper precautions are followed when taking herbs, they can be helpful and effective for reducing many symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis.
