Introduction

Multiple sclerosis is usually caused by the highly acidic waste products of specific types of microbes, which are called “mycotoxins.” These waste products block brain signaling, thus creating “perpetual brain fog.”

Multiple sclerosis can also be an auto-immune disease. What this means is that a substance or microbe gets in a location of the body that the immune system cannot reach.

The immune system, being somewhat of a robot, attacks the area around the substance (hoping to kill or destroy the substance), but in the process, may do far more damage than the substance itself is causing.

Whatever the main cause, the brain cells become weak and thus Multiple Sclerosis can also be called a “cellular energy” disease. But weak brain cells are a symptom, not a “root cause.”

It is important to read this entire article because treating multiple sclerosis may require several different approaches including rebuilding the myelon sheaths, which is discussed late in this article.

Let us talk about the treatment dealing with the primary cause of M.S. in most cases: mycotoxins of microbes which create perpetual brain fog.

The Primary Treatment For MS

The primary treatment for MS is also the primary treatment for several other brain disorders. One article has been written for several brain disorders because they all have the same “root cause,” namely highly acidic mycotoxins which create “perpetual brain fog.”

Unless the patient is known to have been exposed to high levels of mercury over a long period of time (excluding dental amalgam which is very unlikely to cause MS), such as they live near the ocean and eat a lot of seafood, or they are suspected of having Lyme Disease, use this treatment first.

Furthermore, the “consultation” that comes with this treatment can identify the “root cause” even if it is not mycotoxins.

Here is the link to the primary treatment (which deals with the “root cause”) for MS:
The Common Thread of All Major Brain Diseases

Treatments If Lyme Disease or Mercury Are Suspected

The second cause of multiple sclerosis is a special type of CWD (Cell Wall Deficient) bacteria. This bacteria gets inside the myelin sheath. The immune system is unable to reach this bacteria and thus damages the myelon sheath. If this is what is causing MS, it is assumed that the patient has Lyme Disease and that it is the Lyme Disease bacteria that causes the MS.

The treatment for the two microbial versions of M.S. involves killing the microbes (the microbe is not in the bloodstream, thus electromedicine is required)!!

The third cause of multiple sclerosis is heavy metals; usually mercury from fish, dental amalgam or other sources. However, other heavy metals and even some chemicals can cause M.S.

The three causes are vastly, vastly different and so are the three treatments. The treatment for the heavy metal version of M.S. involves energizing the cells at the mitochondria level and chelation tactics, especially chelation which gets past the blood brain barrier (BBB).

In alternative medicine, “electromedicine” is very, very low amperage electrical currents, electromagnetic waves or magnetic pulses. It is totally safe and is not to be confused with the barbaric radiation therapy of orthodox medicine.

Both approaches involve rebuilding the myelin sheath!!

The first thing that must be done with an M.S. patient is try to determine which cause applies to the M.S. case!!

This involves an analysis of whether the person has been exposed to heavy metals or other chemicals. For example: has the person handled heavy metals (e.g. in a dental office or chemistry class); does the person have an abnormally high number of “silver” fillings (which are actually about 50% mercury); has the person been exposed to drinking water contaminated with chemicals (e.g. well water); has the person eaten a lot of fish (all fish have some mercury in them, especially ocean fish); did the person have their mercury fillings removed by an unqualified dentist (less than 1% of all dentists ARE qualified to remove dental amalgam), etc. etc.

The distribution of multiple sclerosis is heavily biased towards the ocean coast (where they consume an abnormally high amount of ocean fish). For example, Norway and the West Coast of the United States (e.g. Alaska) have abnormally high rates of MS!!

The other cause is microbes. If the person has the bacterial form of M.S. they have Lyme Disease or have had some other type of bacterial infection. A person that fits into this category will need to have a consultation with Mike Vrentas to deal with the Lyme Disease. See:
Mike Vrentas Cancer Website (he also handles Lyme Disease)

A third cause of multiple sclerosis might be “bad fats.” These are things like trans-fatty acids. Trans-fatty acids stick to cell walls and may be a cause of multiple sclerosis.

A bad habit that may cause multiple sclerosis is constantly eating the same food that contains other types of bad fats and microbes. Example would be meat, aspartame or peanut butter. People who eat a lot of peanut butter can have several health problems due to both the bad fats and microbes in peanut butter.

When all is said and done MS is a cellular energy disease, meaning the cells themselves are weak. If every cell in a person’s brain is weak (i.e. the brain is made up of many quadrillions of cells if you include the 100 trillion neuron synaptic connectors), then the brain itself will be weak.

URGENT WARNING ABOUT AMALGAM REMOVAL

If you get your dental amalgam removed by an unqualified dentist, it could kill you or make you so sick you will wish you were dead.

STUDY these two articles to insure your dentist knows what he or she is doing!! Hint: the dentist will be trained directly or indirectly by Dr. Huggins (Note: Dr. Huggins literally “treats” M.S. by safely removing both the mercury and infections!! Visiting a dentist trained by Dr. Huggins would be an excellent place to start your MS treatment especially if you are diagnosed early in the disease!!).

Cellular Energy and Other Treatments

Multiple Sclerosis – Key Treatment #1 – ASEA

ASEA has been shown in studies to increase the cellular production, bioavailability and utilization of: (1) glutathione, (2) superoxide dismutase (SOD) and (3) catalase by over five times. These are all antioxidant enzymes produced naturally within the body. Studies have shown that as we age the cells produce less and less of these important enzymes, which can lead to many of the health challenges people experience as they age.

The significance of increasing glutathione is that glutathione is a superb chelator of mercury. Also in this protocol is chlorella, which is another superb chelator of mercury.

Researchers have shown that ASEA CAN increase the cells’ own production and utilization of these three super-antioxidant enzymes by at least 500%. ASEA is an all natural product native to the body! In other words, everything inside the bottle of ASEA is already found inside of your body and in your cells!!

If ASEA is going to be successful at treating MS this should be evident within 90 days after building-up to the standard dose of between 16 and 24 TABLEspoons a day of ASEA (this is between 8 and 12 ounces).

It is important to stay at a high level of dosage until it turns around.

If the protocol is working, a person should stay on the higher dosage for up to 6 months.

Note: ASEA, like many natural products, requires a “build-up.” Here is a sample of a build-up:

  1. Day 1: 2 TABLEspoons – 2 times a day (this is 2 ounces)
  2. Day 2: 2 TABLEspoons – 2 times a day (this is 2 ounces)
  3. Day 3: 2 TABLEspoons – 2 times a day (this is 2 ounces)
  4. Day 4: 3 TABLEspoons – 2 times a day (this is 3 ounces)
  5. Day 5: 3 TABLEspoons – 2 times a day (this is 3 ounces)
  6. Day 6: 3 TABLEspoons – 2 times a day (this is 3 ounces)
  7. Day 7: 4 TABLEspoons – 2 times a day (this is 4 ounces)
  8. Day 8: 4 TABLEspoons – 2 times a day (this is 4 ounces)
  9. Day 9: 4 TABLEspoons – 2 times a day (this is 4 ounces)
  10. Day 10 and thereafter: 4 TABLEspoons – 4 times a day (this is 8 ounces)

(Note: If you can tolerate it, continue to build-up to 4 TABLEspoons – 6 times a day, which is 12 ounces per day.)

When the patient achieves either the 4 TBLspoon 4 or 6 times a day, the 90 day clock begins to see if ASEA is going to be effective.

IF ASEA IS EFFECTIVE AT THE 90-DAY MARK, STAY ON IT FOR 6 MONTHS TOTAL after reaching the maximum dose.

Here is a consultant and vendor who can work with you:

Multiple Sclerosis – Key Treatment #2 – Quantum Pulse

An electromedicine device which has had very, very good results treating Multiple Sclerosis is called the “Quantum Pulse.” Older versions of the device were called the “Vibe Machine.” The two machines are identical in function so it doesn’t matter which device you use.

This device is patterned after a device designed by Nichola Tesla, perhaps the greatest scientific genius of all time.

It creates a massive number of random electrical waves. It is not exactly known why this device is so effective against multiple sclerosis, but it is inexpensive to use and very much worth the effort to try.

Some people can afford to buy one of these machines (about $20,000), but it is far better to find someone who already has one to see how effective it will be.

You should use this device every day for at least a month to see whether it will help!! Hopefully, the practitioner (usually working out of their own home) will know how to “build-up” so you do not get distressing symptoms at the beginning of the treatment.

Multiple Sclerosis – Key Treatment #3: NADH / ENADA From Source Naturals – 5.0 mg

The key development by Dr. Birkmayer was the creation of a stabilized version of the coenzyme NADH.

While enzymes are necessary in the body to assist chemical reactions, coenzymes are necessary for enzymes to work. Thus, without coenzymes the enzymes won’t be of much use.

NADH is also called: coenzyme 1. It is an abbreviation for: Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. NADH is critical in the conversion of food to energy.

In the human body, the conversion of food to energy can be simplified in the following way:

  1. glucose enters the cell,
  2. glucose is converted into pyruvate,
  3. pyruvate enters the mitochondria of the cell (the mitochondria are organelles in the cell where the energy for the cell is made),
  4. Once pyruvate enters the mitochondria the “Citric Acid Cycle” or “Krebs Cycle” begins,
  5. As the Krebs Cycle is cycling, another chain reaction spins off from the Krebs Cycle called the Electron Transport Chain (ETC).

The goal of all of this complex process is the creation of energy in the cells. Specifically, the creation of ATP molecules (adenosine triphosphate) is the goal. ATP provides the energy in the cells.

While each cycle of the Krebs Cycle creates an ATP molecule (which is the energy in the cell), far more ATP molecules are made in the Electron Transport Chain, which is a spin-off of the Krebs Cycle.

In nature, the Krebs Cycle occurs twice for each glucose molecule. For each cycle of the Krebs cycle, one molecule of ATP, three molecules of NADH, and one molecule of FADH2 (a coenzyme similar to NADH) are formed. Therefore, for each glucose molecule, six NADH molecules are made.

NADH is the biological form of hydrogen which reacts with the oxygen present in our cells to produce ATP energy. It is a key “electron carrier” in the Electron Transport Chain (ETC).

NADH is created in the Krebs Cycle and is at the junction of the Krebs Cycle and the Electron Transport Chain. Three ATP molecules can be made for each of the six NADH molecule entering the respiratory chain (i.e. ETC) from a single glucose molecule.

Thus, NADH leads to the creation of eighteen ATP molecules for each glucose molecule. NADH is literally responsible for more ATP molecules than are created by all other sources combined.

The point to all of this is that because NADH is so critical a supplement for MS patients, it is clear that MS is a disease caused by the breakdown of the Krebs Cycle and/or the Electron Transport Chain. In other words, MS is a cellular energy disease.

It should be very well understood that not just any form of NADH is helpful. The form must be stabilized by the patented process discovered by Dr. Birkmayer. The acronym for his patented process is ENADA.

This website only endorses ONE vendor of NADH / ENADA. The vendor is “Source Naturals.” The product has exactly 5.0 mg of NADH. This product is available at many health food stores and on the Internet. Source Naturals is the only vendor we are comfortable with which makes this product.

NADH / ENADA should be taken ONCE A DAY, in the morning, on an empty stomach, at least one-half hour before eating.

If one pill a day is not enough to meet your needs, you can build up to the dose which does meet your needs. Some people have taken as many as 6 pills a day (i.e. 30 mg a day).

Here is an online vendor:
Source Naturals Website (some health food stores also carry)

The critical BOOK which discusses this product is called: NADH – Energizing Coenzyme, by Georg Birkmayer. Here is where to obtain a copy:
NADH – Energizing Coenzyme

Multiple Sclerosis – Key Treatment #4: Chlorella

Mercury is not the only “heavy metal” which can cause Multiple Sclerosis. In fact, there are several heavy metals which can cause Multiple Sclerosis.

The treatment for Multiple Sclerosis caused by dental fillings is to have them removed by a qualified dentist. The removal of heavy metals in other situations is called: chelation therapy.

It is beyond the scope of this article to talk about chelation therapy, but there are several key products which can “chelate” heavy metals. These include chlorella, EDTA, Vitamin C (not as good a chelator as the others), and several others.

There is one thing every person doing chelation needs to be warned about: when you chelate essential minerals from the body (in your attempt to chelate bad things), which some chelating substances will do, it can cause death. Thus, you need to be very, very careful about which products you use to chelate heavy metals.

When going beyond the simple chelation items mentioned in this article, it is always advised to use a qualified medical professional who is experienced in heavy metal chelation.

It is recommended you buy the book: “My Recovery Protocol” by Ken Presner. Ken also has two other inexpensive books specific to chelation. Use a search engine to find his books since the three books may not be on Amazon.

Also note that chelation can be dangerous for other reasons, so be sure to read authoritative books on chelation before attempting it.

Certainly, taking 10-15 small pills of chlorella a day (the Kyoto brand) is perfectly safe. It is also wise to use several drops of liquid cilantro a half-hour after taking the chlorella.

Multiple Sclerosis – Key Treatment #5: GB-4000 M.O.P.A. (If MS Is Caused by Microbes)

By far the best electromedicine device is a frequency generator called the GB-4000 M.O.P.A.

The GB-4000 “sweeps” through many frequencies in succession. It runs frequencies up to 20,000,000 Hz (20 MHz) while most other generators top out at 40,000 Hz or less. It has a 2.4 MHz ‘carrier wave’ which can ‘carry’ lower frequencies much further – most other generators do not use a carrier at all; creating only a localized effect. It runs up to 8 frequencies at the same time saving you hours compared to most other generators only running single frequencies.

It also offers a selection of wave patterns, and various other features which set it apart as the most versatile and powerful frequency generator on the market.

Use the programs for Multiple Sclerosis, Lyme Disease or any programs involving treponemes, spirochetes or mycoplasma.

Note: For Multiple Sclerosis the GB-4000 M.O.P.A. is highly recommended over the SR-4!! The reason is that with the GB-4000 SR-4 linear amplifier it would be difficult, if not impossible, to properly place the electrodes so that the electrical current would pass through the brain!! The M.O.P.A. is like a radio transmitter thus it will get to the brain far more effectively, plus it is more powerful than the SR-4.

Here is a website for much more information about the GB-4000:
GB-4000 Frequency Generators Information and Ordering

Multiple Sclerosis – Key Treatment #6 – Vitamin B12

I recently purchased a book which has led me to believe that a significant number of cases of MS (and a number of other brain disorders) are caused by a Vitamin B12 deficiency. A deficiency of B12 can cause damage to the myelon sheath!!

The problem is that even in those rare situations where orthodox medicine checks for B12 deficiencies their charts for detecting a deficiency are dead wrong!! They may say a patient does not have a deficiency when in fact they have a deadly deficiency.

The other problem is that taking oral B12 is almost worthless. If a person really has a B12 deficiency then a very specific protocol (which very few people know about), which involves injections of a specific type of B12, are necessary.

The bottom line is this: if the patient does have a Vitamin B12 deficiency YOU, the caregiver, are going to have to take charge and tell your medical doctors what they need to do to check for a B12 deficiency AND what kinds of injections, and how often, are needed!!

The “Bible” on this subject is the book: Could It Be B12? – An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses, Second Edition, by Sally M. Pacholok and Jeffrey J. Stuart. This book will tell you how to get a proper diagnosis of a B12 deficiency.

STUDY THIS BOOK and combine its information with other information on this page!!

More About the Lyme Bacteria

A probable cause of some cases of MS is the Borrelia spirochete (i.e. treponemes) bacteria, which is a “cell wall deficient” bacteria.

See the book: Stealth Pathogens by Lida Mattman to see the evidence for Borreli causing M.S. While only a couple of the pages actually talk about M.S., the entire book is a wealth of information on the type of bacteria which causes M.S. and the key chapter (which includes a discussion of M.S.) has a wealth of references.

Curing Multiple Sclerosis caused by spirochete bacteria (which is a “cell wall deficient” bacteria) actually involves three key things:

  1. Using electromedicine to kill the bacteria which causes the M.S.,
  2. Using minerals to rebuild the myelin sheaths,
  3. Using other key oils (see below).

To maximize your chances of curing your Multiple Sclerosis, buy the book: Wellness Secrets For Life, by A. True Ott, PhD. The book has a list of minerals that can be used to repair damaged myelin sheath.

The book: The China Study has a chapter on autoimmune diseases, which includes a section on Multiple Sclerosis. The reputation of this book is so absolutely superb it would be worth buying the book for this one section (e.g. there was an interesting study they mention on saturated fats). It also has a more general section on all autoimmune diseases.

In The China Study there was a very high correlation between milk and the occurrence of M.S. This could have been because of the microbes in the milk in China. Also, I doubt China has the level of dental amalgam as in the U.S. which would be another evidence for milk being a cause.

Removing root canal teeth will not have as much of an affect on M.S. as removing the heavy metals, but in the long run it may be a good idea. Root canals are a safe-haven for microbes and can cause a recurrence of any disease because some of the target microbes are able to safely “hide” inside the root canals.

The same biological dentist who removes mercury from your teeth is also the best person to use to remove the root canals.

Using Electromedicine To Kill the Bacteria

Because the bacteria which causes M.S. does not exist in the bloodstream, but rather exists in the brain inside the myelin sheath, the only way to kill these bacteria is with electromedicine. The GB-4000 M.O.P.A. is discussed above. Here are other possibilities.

The Photon Sound Beam

Another option to use is the Photon Sound Beam which may also kill Borrelia spirochetes (i.e. treponemes) which cause Multiple Sclerosis.

This device is sold by Mother Earth Minerals at (this is also the website that sells the book on minerals):
Mother Earth Minerals

BioMeridian (Electromedicine)

Meridian points, some correlating to acupuncture points, can be used to collect energetic data. Different organs are associated with different energy meridians, and health problems in various organs are believed to manifest themselves as energetic disturbances in the associated meridians. Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) is a well-known technology used in various healthcare practices to measure electrical characteristics at meridian points throughout the body.

BioMeridian International is the only MSAS manufacturer in the world with patent pending technology. It is a Class II medical device registered with the FDA, meeting stringent requirements and guidelines. The software creates a graphic display for patients to view, helping them to better understand the energetic reading of their body. The practitioner can then access a database of 40,000 ideas that may be useful for balancing the patient’s functional health. Practitioners with BioMeridian systems can be found in your area by calling BioMeridian directly at 1-888-224-2337 and providing your zip code.

Practitioners using the BioMeridian MSAS systems have had excellent results with M.S. patients using their sophisticated technology. Obviously the company cannot make medical claims.

Contact Linda Bamber at the email address below for more information about the system or go directly to the website: www.biomeridian.com.

About Multiple Sclerosis – Possible Cause – Bad Fats

In this scenario eating large amounts of bad fats, such as trans-fatty acids (e.g. margarine, peanut butter, canola oil, etc.), essentially coat many of the brain cells and cause them to fail to function properly.

High levels of peanut butter, for example, have been shown to cause scleroderma, which is another brain disorder.

The only solution to this problem is to eat good fats and other products that clean off the bad fats from the cells. While eating good fats will do that, it takes too long.

One solution is to use the cancer treatment known as the Cellect-Budwig protocol. The product Cellect and the special diet called the “Budwig Diet” are very synergistic at restoring the electrical charge in the cells. See this article:
Cellect-Budwig (for cancer patients)

About Multiple Sclerosis – Possible Cause – Allergies, etc.

In this case the body’s allergic response (to chemicals/foods the person takes in) creates an auto-immune response which damages the cells.

The book: The MS Recovery Diet (Paperback), by Ann Sawyer and Judith Bachrach (Author) has cured some MS patients.

Rebuilding the Myelin Sheath

The best way to rebuild the myelin sheaths is by using a combination of minerals and oils. The best mineral expert I have seen, on the subject of rebuilding the myelin sheath, is Dr. True Ott, PhD of Mother Earth minerals. His book: Wellness Secrets For Life – An Owner’s Manual For The Human Body has the best list of minerals for rebuilding the myelin sheath on page 123.

In terms of oils, here are some comments.

The myelin sheath is made up of mostly essential fatty acids. Part of the treatment should be high levels of omega 3 – DHA and EFA. The best way to take EFAs is the Budwig Diet – hit it hard – 6 tablespoons a day of liquid, refrigerated flaxseed oil plus organic cottage cheese. See this cancer article:
Budwig Diet Article

(Note: While on the Budwig Diet, if you are using the “Super MSM” protocol, do not use the Vitamin C portion of the protocol as Vitamin C will interfere with the Budwig diet.)

Also take high quality Norwegian Fish Oils to get the Long chain EFAs.

Watch Lorenzo’s Oil (a movie – buy it and watch it 2 or 3 times)
Lorenzo’s Oil – The Movie

Also, study the website which is researching the myelin sheath:
The Myelin Project

Because M.S. is a disease of the myelin sheath, Lorenzo’s oil may be of benefit. A friend of mine told me how to make rapeseed oil (compare this to what “The Myelin Project” recommends):

  1. Grind or crush rapeseed seeds,
  2. Make sure the shells are broken apart,
  3. Boil them in water,
  4. The oil will rise to the top of the mixture,
  5. Use a “gravy strainer” to extract the oil from the mixture,
  6. Do not keep for more than 30 days (i.e. make a new batch every 30 days)

Required Item # – MSM

Another key and required supplement is MSM, or methyl sulfonyl methane. MSM is another key to myelin sheath. See the book: “Methyl Magic” for more information. See this web page to learn the easiest and best way to take MSM:
The “Super MSM” Protocol For Cancer

Required Item # – Stem Enhance

It is unknown whether stem cells are able to aid in rebuilding the myelin sheath, but it certainly would be a good idea to try it. Stem Enhance is a product which prods the body to make and release stem cells.

Other Comments

This website is an excellent resource for M.S. patients, especially with regards to dietary-based treatment:

http://www.ms.health-dynamicx.com/

Here is the Dale Humphrey Protocol. It is composed of Injectable Vitamin B1 and Liver Extract. Two different medical doctors came up with this protocol independently of each other:
Dale Humphrey Protocol

Here is a source of the injectable liver extract:
College Pharmacy

They also have a web page which links to many other M.S. resources:

http://www.ms.health-dynamicx.com/lp-int.htm

M.S. symptoms can also be caused by aspartame (i.e. NutraSweet®, Equal®, etc.). In other words, just like mercury poisoning the person may be suffering from aspartame poisoning.

M.S. patients frequently have livers which are not detoxifying the body, causing a build-up of many dangerous toxins and other chemicals. A very good product to detoxify the liver is “Mangosteen Plus.” Here is a vendor:
Mangosteen Plus Vendor

Another excellent liver product is Quantum Liver Complex

There are also many herbs that will help detoxify the liver. Essiac Tea is just one example:
Essiac Tea Article

M.S. patients are always short of minerals, especially magnesium and potassium. They have a high ph or acid balance, and usually not enough B vitamins.

M.S. patients frequently have some allergies because of the low liver function and abundance of microbes in their body.

Dr. Mercola noted that virtually every R.A. and M.S. patient had very low levels of Vitamin D. Their levels were 10 to 20, but should be at 50 to 55. He recommended sunlight as the source of Vitamin D. Whether this is a symptom or a cause is unknown.
