The Multiple Sclerosis SECRET Nobody Talks About
When doctors don’t know how to treat a disease, they always turn to their old standby: throw a drug at it.
That’s certainly the case with multiple sclerosis.
There is no cure, so doctors resort to prescribing dangerous drugs, including immunosuppressants, steroids, and even CHEMOTHERAPY!
Most patients go along with it because they don’t think they have other options.
But science has revealed a drug-free MS secret that science has shown can both prevent the disease—and slow its progression.
If you or someone you love has MS, you don’t want to miss this.
When researchers searched for a common link between MS patients, they found it in a seemingly unlikely place:
In a study published in the journal Neurology, researchers tracked 151 women with MS, and 235 women without MS.
They found that the women who lived in the sunniest areas during their childhood were 51% less likely to develop MS than those who lived in the least sunny areas.
How could something as simple as where you grew up make such a big difference in the risk of getting such a devastating disease?
It all comes back to vitamin D.
Over 800 studies have been conducted on the connection between MS and vitamin D.
Numerous studies have shown that those with the highest vitamin D levels tend to have the lowest risk of multiple sclerosis—and that people with MS are typically deficient in this important nutrient.
Just last year, a large study that included over 800,000 women found that maintaining high vitamin D levels slashed the risk of developing MS.
Previous studies have also shown the location/MS connection, with the rate of MS being twice as high in states north of the 37th parallel as it is in the southern states.
Can you guess why?
It’s because the farther away you get from the equator, the less vitamin D your skin makes from the sun.
These studies focus on ways to PREVENT multiple sclerosis. But sunshine/vitamin D also has benefits for people who are already suffering from the disease.
Studies have shown that people with MS who maintain higher levels of vitamin D tend to have less severe symptoms of the disease.
One study even showed that taking vitamin D reduces the number of lesions in the brains of MS patients, a finding that represents vitamin D’s ability to SLOW—and possibly even REVERSE—damage caused by MS.
The research is clear: Whether you’re looking to prevent multiple sclerosis or slow its progression, boosting your vitamin D levels by spending time in the sun is the perfect way to do it.
This study adds one more piece to the sunshine/vitamin D/multiple sclerosis puzzle—and one more reason to spend more time in the sun every day.
To a brighter day,
