sclerosis (MS) is a disorder characterized by progressive deterioration
of the myelin, or fatty sheaths, that protect the nerve axons
in the central nervous system. This deterioration impairs the
transmission of nerve impulses, resulting in weakness, numbness,
locomotor difficulty, pain, loss of vision, and other health
problems. MS is viewed as an autoimmune disorder that transpires
when internal antibodies mistakenly direct their "attack" against
the body's own nerve cells; the disease often unfolds in intermittent
periods of relapses and remissions.

remain puzzled over the precise cause of MS. Although the existence
of an instigating viral agent has been hypothesized, and genetic
susceptibility seems to play a role, a variety of environmental
factors are believed to strongly influence both the onset and
progression of this disease. These factors are believed to be
multifactorial, and include dietary, metabolic, immunological
and hormonal triggers.
following GSDL assessments can help pinpoint potential triggers
implicated in the etiology of MS, and specifically monitor the
effectiveness of complementary therapy for MS patients.
Sclerosis and Essential Fatty Acids: Researchers have linked
the increasing prevalence of MS in modern times, along with
its unique pattern of geographical incidence, to dietary imbalances
of essential fatty acids.
Sclerosis and Allergies: Food allergens may trigger the
initial cascade of autoimmune events that characterize MS.
Sclerosis and Melatonin: Disruptions of pineal gland function
have been linked not only to the initial development of MS,
but with symptoms of depression that often accompany the disease.
Sclerosis and Oxidative Stress: Destruction of myelin tissue
in MS is primarily mediated by reactive oxygen species in the
Sclerosis and Elemental Imbalances: Several critical nutrient
and toxic element imbalances are associated with MS symptoms.
Sclerosis and Amino Acids: Relapses of MS may be closely
related to levels of these fundamental protein constituents.
