Never let any medical diagnosis stop you from pursuing the best health possible!
Congratulations on taking this exciting step towards better health & wellness! As both a Holistic Nutritionist and someone who has Multiple Sclerosis, I’m excited to share my experiences and knowledge to help guide you in learning how to manage this illness naturally.
Multiple Sclerosis is a complex, multifaceted disease with many possible outcomes. Nutrition should never be considered an alternative, but rather an integral part of any health protocol. Taking a holistic, nutritional approach to managing MS involves addressing the body as a whole in order to modulate the immune system and stop your body from initiating an autoimmune attack against itself.
Whether you’re recently diagnosed, or your condition has progressed to advanced stages, it’s never too late to start incorporating healthy diet and lifestyle habits. The sooner you can start making the appropriate changes to your diet, the better, in order to prevent permanent scarring, demyelination and more severe complications down the road.
There are many ways in which natural and holistic therapies can help slow the progression of this disease. I’m here to help you understand the key things you need to know about keeping your MS symptoms under control. I can teach you how to create balance in your body, decrease inflammation, and offer natural pain and symptom management.
The purpose of this program is to address the underlying reasons of why the body initiates an autoimmune attack, and to prevent or stop your illness from progressing. By cleaning up the diet and removing irritating, pro-inflammatory substances, we’ll focus on addressing the root cause of why the body attacks its own tissues during an MS exacerbation. We will slowly and gently detoxify the body, supplying nourishment to the cells and correct nutritional deficiencies. It’s also important to assess for hidden food allergies and sensitivities that might act as symptom triggers by contributing to inflammation in the body.
