Q. Are the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis helped by the NEWSTART® program?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) symptoms result when an immune-system attack affects myelin, the protective insulation surrounding nerve fibers of the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). Myelin is destroyed and replaced by scar (sclerotic) tissue. Some nerve fibers are permanently severed. The damage appears in multiple places within the central nervous system hence, the name multiple sclerosis.
As a result, MS can cause blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis and more. These problems may be permanent or may come and go.
Most people with MS have a normal or near-normal life expectancy.
The NEWSTART program has helped individuals suffering from MS with improved quality of life. The plant-based diet and exercise advocated by the program is scientifically backed to slow or even halt MS progression.
