Antibodies attack the nervous system by destroying the myelin layer that covers the nerves of brain and spinal , causing the nerves damaged. The severity of the disease depends on the myelin damage.
Multiple sclerosis is a degenerative disease in which central nervous system is impaired, including the brain, and vision .
Two-thirds of MS cases starts at the age of 20 to 40 and women are affected twice as men ..
The disease rarely affects children or adults over age 60.
The disease is more common in northern European countries, and it is limited in the Far East like Japan Korea and China.
The damage in nervous system patients depend on the area of the nerve that was damaged
The early stages of the disease Symptoms:
Dizziness, extreme mood changes, vision problems like double vision or blurring.
Sense of tingling or numbness in the skin, especially hands or feet.
Disequilibrium or coordination problem, muscle stiffness.
Sense of vomiting or nausea, body tremor ,words connections.
Fatigue or weakness, breathing difficulty, impotence in men.
When the disease progresses:
There are difficulties in walking as shuffling and instability, convulsive body movements.
Sometimes paralysis and breathing difficulties and disruptions in glucose levels.
Difficulties in urination, stomach pain, extreme tiredness and sense of electrical currents.
The disease is characterized by periods in which symptoms disappear or appear without a clear reason.
The Disease progress With more severe seizures.
Diagnosis accuracy rate is 95 percent and it is done by MRI. . RADIOLOGY 1991; 178; 447-51
The main Cause of the disease is autoimmune , where antibodies attack the myelin cover as if it were a foreign body.

Probably the main reason is the blood-brain barrier damage .as far as The blood-brain barrier more hurt, so the severity of the disease. it should be mentioned that normal blood-brain barrier does not allow penetration of the brain immune system components.

Blood-brain barrier consists of cells endotel surround them are collagen, fibrin and other proteins.
If this barrier is a healthy the immune system components can not penetrate the brain and also cannot penetrate different foods, hormones, drugs or toxins.
Blood-brain barrier can be damaged by:
Trauma such as brain damage.
Lack of essential foods and strengthening of capillary blood vessels .
Toxic heavy metals.
Damage resulting from oxidation.
Increased level of homocysteine.
Prostaglandins, Leukotriens, clotting factors, Histamin, TNF, that causing inflammation.

More information about the reasons:
Mercury amalgam of teeth is probably an important factor in causing the disease, due to the fact that the level of mercury in patients with multiple sclerosis is seven times higher than healthy population.
Swedish study found that the normal level of mercury in the spine should be 0.4 micrograms per liter, but the average level in patients with MS is 3 micrograms per liter.
Dr. Patrick Kingali, MS disease expert, found that from 3800 patients treated, only with 5 patients were no signs of mercury poisoning.

Heated and saturated fat oils
Prominent reason is eating saturated heated fats.
In research conducted in New Zealand for 34 years, participated 114 MS patients.Patients consumed polyunsaturated fats for 34 years and almost did not consumed saturated fat.
95 percent of patients who reduced their consumption of saturated fats with the identification of the disease in its early stages and still had no significant neurological signs, were left with mild disabilities for 30 years.
When they return to the menu rich in saturated fats their condition deteriorated.

Lack of vitamin B12
It was found that in patients with multiple sclerosis vitamin B12 levels significantly lower than healthy people.
J AM MED ASS 1991; 48; 808; -11
It should be noted that the symptoms of severe lack of vitamin B12 is similar to the M.S. symptoms.
Check if MS patients do not suffer from increased levels of Candida.
If you do suffer from Candida, it will cause a significant worsening symptoms.
in most cases Candida stems from giving antibiotics , increased yeast eating flour products, and sugars at encreased level.

Avoid exposure to heat such as hot baths, warm environment at work, or exercise, except swimming in not cold water , to prevent the worsening of the symptoms of the disease.
However, sun exposure is important for the relief of symptoms.
