What is Multiple sclerosis?

MS or Multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory disease which is responsible for damaging nerve cells in the brain and in the spinal cord. The damage of those cells means that the nervous system cannot communicate properly with the rest of the body, which leads to mental, physical and sometimes psychiatric problems. There are two forms of this disease: relapsing form (symptoms are present only in isolated attacks) and progressive form (advance form). A person can be without symptoms between attacks, but the permanent damage can often occur.

The cause of this disease is still unknown. Scientists believe that the one of the reasons is destruction by the immune system, so this disease can be classified as the autoimmune disease. The second reason can be genetic and environmental factors.

Sadly, there is no cure for this disease. Treatments are used to make the attack easier and to prevent new one. Medications used against MS are often with many side effects, so they cannot be tolerated by everyone’s. This is the main reason why some MS patients seek alternative treatments. As we know, there are no other treatments available. People who have this disease can be divided it three groups: those who developed the disease in early life, those who have relapsed form and those who experienced a few attacks. People with MS live 5-10 shorter than the unaffected population.

The MS starts at age 20-50 and it is two times common in women as in men. From 2008 till now, there are more than 2.5 million people affected with MS. It is one of the most common autoimmune diseases.
