considered an autoimmune disorder, where the body becomes confused and
attacks itself, as if it is a foreign invader that the body needs to
defend itself against. MS is
known for attacking the nerves, and especially the myelin sheath
along the spinal cord and various parts of the brain.
Our bodies are
at least 60% nerves and our brains are at least 80% nerves and because
of this, Multiple
affect many parts of our entire bodies. The myelin sheath,
along the spinal cord and the brain are the 2 main areas of the body
attacks. Multiple Sclerosis or
multiple scarring can also be a result through out other nerves
throughout the body, but the ms tests do not detect the other scarring
throughout the body as well as it can be detected in the brain on the
Multiple Sclerosis attacks the body, it causes scarring or lesions
along the spinal cord, throughout the brain or possibly even scarring
in other nerves through out the body.
A MS MRI
brain scan can be performed to determine how much ms scarring can be
seen in he brain on the test results.
are the scarring that can be seen on mri test results, which are a
characteristic of MS that is present in most cases of MS. Depending on
where the MS
ends up, this can affect many bodily functions and systems throughout
the body. When the scarring or lesions
are present throughout the brain, this can result in many more
ms symptoms, that can affect how
well we function on an intermittent basis or on a more consistent,
attacks can affect the MS brain in many ways that can decrease how well
our brains and our bodies function. MS attacks the myelin
sheath along the spinal cord, which results most often in demyleination
of the spine, that results in scarring replacing the myelin, so that it
can no longer do its job of protecting the spinal cord as it should.
Sclerosis can also attack the myelin throughout the brain and cause ms
scarring, ms lesions or ms plaques scattered through out the brain.
Once the ms brain is evaluated doing a brain mri ms can be
diagnosed through evaluating the brain and the spinal cord to determine
if Multiple Sclerosis is present.
the ms brain is attacked all kinds of symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis
can result problems, s that can result from the
scarring that ms can
cause to the brain is a group of symptoms called cognitive brain
function problems.including ms memory problems, ms cognitive brain
function and other ms symptoms.
Multiple Sclerosis Cognitive
Brain function problems that can be affected by Multiple Sclerosis can
having difficulties with understanding what is going on around you;
consciously and unconsciously comprehending what is going on in the
world around us becomes more difficult.
Thought Processes are
interrupted more often -
reasoning through things enough to draw conclusions from the
observations that you make about what is happening in a given situation
becomes more difficult.
it becomes more difficult with making a decision about something.
things ahead of time becomes more difficult
becomes more difficult - reasoning
through a situation, circumstance or through information becomes
increasing more difficult.
becomes more difficult
or ms memory becomes worse.
is altered –
it becomes more difficult you to interpret what is going on around you
or for you to make sense of what is going on around you.
concepts becomes more difficult
sense of the world around you can become more difficult
* ms memory problems
- can become worse - if
this becomes severe enough, it can become more difficult to remember way people
say to you or what you did just 15 to 20 minutes ago.
MS cognitive problems
- can be mild
to severe and when they become severe enough it can become
harder and harder for you to function
on your own without needing much
more assistance to do the daily activities to take care of yourself
that we often take for granted that we can do for us to take care of
ourselves and our families.
ms personality change -
can occur sometimes, depending on which part of the brain is where the
ms lesions are found. If the brain scarring is more severe,
can sometimes dramatically change the person's personality by a much
larger amount, but this would be more often be present in the more
severe cases of MS that attacks and causes more severe scarring to the
brain.ngewould be in tin a few of the more extreme cases of MS where
is major scarring in the brain, since certain parts of the brain that
have been damaged in head trauma cases have been found to drastically
change the personality of the person, but this is not a very common
occurrence in the majority of cases of Multiple Sclerosis.
can help those with MS that have scarring in the brain to help the body
to repair the ms
I have found that with my own case of Multiple
Sclerosis, with the scarring the brain that a few things
do help the body to start to reverse the damage that has occurred
because of MS.
to help our bodies fight back against ms
brain function problems
cut out saturated over processed fats and add in health oils and foods
to help restore balance the amount of essential fatty acids that need
to be include in the daily dietary intake.
certain supplements -
to replenish vitamins that are deficient or depleted that the
brain needs to aid in repairing and reconnecting neurons in the brain
that help it to function more like it should be functioning.
* Exercise –
certain types of exercise can actually help to reprogram the brain and
help the brain to start to function better again. Exercise
and intense physical therapy are known to help to redevelop neural
pathways through out the brain that help retrain the brain and
reconnect the different parts of the brain so that they start to
function better and learn to communicate with each other again.
are certain Brain Exercises that I have found that have helped me to
function so much better than I did at the beginning after I was first
diagnosed with MS that can help you to function better again.
this helps reduce how much the body attacks itself and allows the body
to start to repair and replenish the parts of the body that have
that I have found, by my own trial and error approach, which have
helped me with reducing how stressed out I feel so much of the
time, include meditation, breath
therapy, music or sound therapy, color therapy or chromotherapy,
visualization, light therapy, guided imagery,tai chi and yoga
may be other techniques and methods that can help to
reduce stress levels, but these are the ways that I have found that
have helped me when I become to over stressed, because of my MS over
reaction to stimulation, for me to be able to calm down.
Finding ways to reduce how those of us with Multiple
Sclerosis tend to over react to stress can make a huge difference in
how well the nerves work in our brains, because an over reaction to
stress can actually confuse or scramble the signals of the neurons in
the brain as they try to communicate with each other. When
the brain signals become confused or scrambled, this can greatly
reduce how well we can function overall, since the brain is
the master controller for the whole body.
ways to reduce our over reaction can make a very big difference in how
several natural and alternative ways that can help to reduce how severe
the confusion to the signals in the brain can become, after the
presence of multiple sclerosis lesions in the brain are already present.

The ways that we have found that can help can include:
* Remove Saturated fats from your diet and add in the "good"
