No matter what health issue a person may deal with, there is hope for better health. Make the most of the situation by trying to be as healthy as possible. Even if improvements are only slight, that is better than regressing. If continued improvements occur, full recovery may be in the future. Even though we will not last forever in the body we have, we can try to be as healthy as we can while we are here. Most, if not all conditions can be improved by taking this approach.
Take injuries or diseases of the nerves such as ALD or MS. ALD or adrenoleukodystrophy is a rare inherited disease that affects young males. In this progressive disease, the myelin sheath surrounding nerve cells breaks down and Addison’s disease or primary adrenal insufficiency develops. Without this protective myelin covering, nerves are unable to function properly or at all. In the movie Lorenzo’s Oil based on a true story, determined parents of an ALD son, Lorenzo, help to discover a diet that stops the progression of this debilitating disease.
Multiple sclerosis is a progressive autoimmune disease affecting the brain and central nervous system in which symptoms and severity vary widely. The disease first occurs most commonly in young adult females. Nerve damage occurs when inflammation develops due to the body attacking itself. Nerve damage may occur in any part of the brain or spinal cord affecting any part of the body. When there is nerve damage, many potential symptoms can develop.
The exact cause of onset is unknown, but genetics, infection and environmental factors may be to blame. More research is needed, but here are some of my tips for dealing with MS:
Try to do what you can about the genetic factor.
- Rose geranium essential oil
