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, loco motor 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
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 multi factorial,
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. For more information click

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
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.
