A New Hope For MS Patients!
Multiple Sclerosis is an insidious auto-immune disease process that destroys the myelin sheaths, which surround axons of the brain and spinal cord. Axons are the main "freeway" of nerve signals that control muscle function, movement, and cognitive abilities.
Multiple Sclerosis is also known as MS, a condition that literally causes the body's immune system to attack and destroy its own myelin sheaths, which prevents axons from receiving and sending out signals.
Multiple Sclerosis can either be a relapsing form of the disease or progressive form of the disease. In the relapsing form of MS, symptoms may peak and ebb, such as waves in an ocean tide, with long periods of inactivity in between episodes. The progressive form of the disease causes a general increase of symptoms and neurological problems as the disease advances.
