MS

This MS Secret Could Save Your Life

If you’re living with multiple sclerosis… or know someone who is… you know it’s one of the most horrifying diseases around.

It takes away your sight… your ability to walk… your independence.

It takes away everything.

But what if you NEVER had to worry about MS again?

Researchers have just discovered a shocking culprit behind this dreaded disease.

And once you learn what it is, you’re well on your way to stopping MS from ever developing. 

MS is a devastating autoimmune disease where your immune system attacks healthy cells in your brain.

The resulting inflammation destroys the coating of nerve cells called myelin (which reduces their ability to function) in the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves.

As of last count, there are over one million people with this devastating disease.

A team of researchers has been trying to discover the root cause of MS, and it has taken them down some strange roads.

The team from Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School found that gut bacteria may be the leading factor in the development of MS.  

When gut bacteria change, especially during young adulthood, it begins the process.

MS is well known to come and go. The occasional flare-ups make sense when you look at it from the view of gut health.

When digestive balance is thrown off, the body attacks itself, inflammation rises, nerve transmission falls and this results in symptoms: blurred vision, poor coordination and balance, fatigue, and brain fog.

Gut dysbiosis (more bad bacteria that good bacteria) is the key.

The researchers discovered this when they placed MS-prone mice in a sterile environment. As soon they moved them in with other mice and their gut bacteria changed, the disease was triggered.  

The pathway to avoiding MS and avoiding flare-ups is to maintain good gut health.

Let me show you how.

Dr. Scott’s Gut Health Program:

  • Probiotics are your easiest path to a healthy digestive system. I prefer a probiotic product that contains a fiber prebiotic along with good bacteria (probiotics).
  • Eat enough fiber to, not only help with regular bowel movements, but to also help stimulate healthy bacterial growth. I always suggest people choose both water-soluble and water-insoluble fiber. One of my favorite fibers is ground flax seeds.
  • Throw away junk food, trans fats, processed, and chemical foods. All processed foods, trans fatty acids, artificial sweeteners, and alcohol harm gut bacteria. Do what you can to limit these non-foods in your diet.
  • Exercise doesn’t seem like the first place you would turn to help your digestive tract, but it has been shown to help encourage a healthy microbiome.

Your gut health is more important than we ever realized and, now, it may be our key to keeping MS out of our lives (or to keep it from getting worse). 

Health and Happiness,
