I know MS is considered an autoimmune disease, meaning that something causes the immune system to go haywire and "attack itself" (myelin in the case of MS). Lately I have been questioning this. Call me crazy but, I believe our bodies are designed so well and that they must have good reason for doing what they are doing. I may have no idea what I am talking about, but just maybe, the terrible symptoms we have with MS are suppose to get our attention to change something! I wish there was more wisdom in finding the real cause of the disease rather than finding a drug that is suppose to "cure it." Too many times I have had medical problems that the doctors have thrown a drug at and eventually, I was able to find a common sense approach, whether through my own research or through a alternative health care practitioner. I guess I am just hoping for something simple to cure MS! Recently a doctor prescribed Prilosec (heartburn drug), because I was having heart irregularities. The heart symptoms were scary and really got my attention. (The EKG came out fine). To make a long story short, I started thinking I wasn't getting enough calcium and magnesium in my diet. Sure enough, after 3 weeks of suffering, taking supplements seems to have alleviated the problem (afterall the heart depends on these minerals to function, duh). The doctor's weren't helping me, so I had to do something. I feel like it is this way with MS. I know this has not been everyone's experience, but it sure has been mine. I am now wondering if taking anything that strengthens the immune system is really a problem for MS like I have heard for so long. Is there any proof of this or is it just speculation? I plan to do more research on this. Does anyone have any good info on this?
