Multiple Sclerosis can be as unpredictable an affliction as it is tragic. Multiple Sclerosis, or MS as it is commonly known, is a disease that affects the central nervous system. Although there is no cure, there are some known MS treatments that can help in some cases.

Information about MS Treatments

One of the things that make Multiple Sclerosis treatment so difficult is that it affects everyone who has it differently. The way in which a person's nerves transmit information becomes damaged. For some, this can cause severe physical disabilities. For others, it may have hardly any affect at all. To make things worse, the disease is a degenerative disorder, meaning that over time, it will get worse and worse.

MS treatments are basically divided into two categories. These are traditional and alternative methods. Traditional MS treatments include the regular use of drugs such as Avonex, Interferon Beta-1A, Rebif, or Copaxone, just to name a few.

Again, because the disorder is different for everyone, the success of these traditional treatments can be unpredictable. And of course, they can only slow down or dull the effects of MS. There is no cure.

Alternative Treatments

Homeopathic medicine takes an alternative approach to MS treatments. Since everyone is different, homeopathic techniques favor tailoring the treatment to the individual. This can include simple things, such as exercise, meditation, or deep breathing techniques. But it can also include dietary, nutritional treatments, and vitamin supplements, such as Valerian, Vitamin D, Bee Venom, etc.

Homeopathic medicine tends to favor all natural methods of treating a disorder like MS. The idea is to get to the root of the problem by exploring the nature of the human body itself, rather than dependence on chemicals or drugs.

What to Choose

So which is better? This is a question that has been the subject of much debate in the medical community. Some who suffer from MS swear by the less traditional homeopathic methods. Others feel that there is more hard data to support traditional methods of treatment as approved by the F.D.A. Again, which side is correct?

Individual Treatments

The key to MS treatments is finding the individual treatment that works best for you. You don't need to feel hopeless about your MS because there are active treatments for you. Investigate some of your treatment options and find the one that works well with your body.
