Our Treatments



Inflammatory changes at various areas of the nerve fibres is termed as multiple sclerosis.

Our body has an innate capacity to fight illness by producing the necessary antibodies in the blood when they sense an offender and nonchalantly put it away whether it is a bacteria or a virus. But sometimes our immunity fails to distinguish our own cells and produces a reaction against them. Any ailments occurring out of such a response are termed as autoimmune diseases. Multiple sclerosis is one of them.

But what is multiple sclerosis?

Our brain has innumerable nerves rich with nerve fibres traversing across and through the spinal cord. These relay impulses and the messages are actively transmitted "electronically" to the next fibre that give a sense of urgency and purpose to all the organs of the body as to how they should function. But inappropriately our immune cells consider the protective myelin sheath of the nerve fibres to be harmful and produce a reaction to disintegrate them. This leads to loss of the sheath over certain areas and accumulation of fluid around the nerve fibre, which compresses the nerve and prevents the messages from going through. Since this inflammatory changes occur at various areas of the nerve fibres this is termed as multiple sclerosis.

So the symptoms of multiple sclerosis depend on the nerves affected.

The usual affected nerves are the optic nerve thereby symptoms like sudden blurring of vision, diplopia or double vision take place. Flickering of the eyes could occur too. But there are all reversible to the most extent.

Speech difficulties

There could be speech difficulties for a while. Due to muscle spasms there could be clumsiness of the hands and tremor .

If the nerves supplying the urinary bladder are affected, urinary symptoms are prominent.

Emotional instability with anger, irritability and frustration could be hastened by such an ailment. Depression in such patients is common.

Short-term memory loss and inability to take detailed instructions could occur.

Multiple sclerosis does not necessarily follow a similar course in all individuals. The first episode could be so mild that it could pass off as the body fights it away. But if the disease progresses the symptoms could be apparent.

Gradual progress

In few people it could progress gradually over a period of several years even up to 20 years. In some the episodes could wane away and the patient goes into an inactive phase called remission for several years only to become active again called relapse. Though there is no particular reason for the resurgence of the ailment it could occur if the person is exposed to extreme environment conditions, stress, or even strenuous exercise. Pregnancy is another phase when relapse is common though the cause remains unknown.

Even if the patient has to live with it for life that does not mean that the disease is active all the while. Symptomatic treatment helps in alleviation of the symptoms during an acute phase and the main challenge is to see that the remission or the inactive phase is prolonged. That is the idea of any system of medicine and homoeopathy helps in a complementary way to work for the same.

Physostigma, Phellandrium and Alumina relieve the symptoms affecting the optic nerve gradually. When the muscles are affected it is Gelsemium, Lathyrus sativus, Magnesia phos Plumbum met and Natrum mur are found to be helpful. When the emotional quotient is questioned Aurum met, Argentum nitricum, Ignatia and Staphysagria are of good help.

The disabling, painful and distressing symptoms of multiple sclerosis can be relieved in conjunction with homoeopathic medicines.
