How to heal your MS goes far beyond getting a prescription. It involves reviewing and transforming the core factors that caused the MS to be expressed in your body. In this first session of the series Creating Health, we begin to detail how to heal your multiple sclerosis by addressing and healing those core factors – the physiological factors, such as food, toxins, gut health and lifestyle and the psycho-social factors such as trauma, emotional repression and insecure attachment styles.
Multiple Sclerosis is a Chronic Disease
To begin to understand how to heal you MS, we must understand the type of disease it is and the best strategies in modern medicine to address its cause. Multile Sclerisis is a chronic disease. Chronic disease are non-viral diseases that have lasted for more than 3 months and cannot be cured by medicine. These are ‘life style’ diseases and to treat them, we must address the life style factors behind them rather than focus on just manage symptoms.
“Cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and the other conditions we examined are not abrupt new developments in adult life, but culmination of lifelong processes.” – Gabor Mate, M.D. “When the Body Says NO”
By addressing both the physical factors and the mental factors behind multiple sclerosis, we have the greatest chance of reversing the symptoms of MS.
The Psycho-Social Factors to Heal Your MS
It is not the traumatic event or experience that we had in childhood and early adulthood that causes mutliple schlerosis, but the beliefs or behaviors created from those experiences. By addressing and transforming these personality traits, we can reduce the internal pressures and stressors in the body and reduce the symptoms of MS.
In the book, “When the Body Says No”, Dr. Gabor Mate demonstrates the evidence and research that links psychosocial factors, such as stress, repressed emotions and personality to the onset and exacerbation of chronic diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Here in this presentation linked below he gives us some examples of how our personality that cause multiple sclerosis as well as other diseases such as cancer:
One aspect that is important for the body to creating heal your MS, is the ability to relax and restore. The body cannot restore itself when it is in constant movement and responding to life. It needs times of deep relaxation, such as during a nap, meditation, relaxation or sleep.
In the presentation Eva M Clark gave us an example of hypnosis for relaxing and restoring. You can hear and download the recording here:
The Physical Factors Behind Multiple Sclerosis
The physical factors behind Palmer Kippola’s multiple sclerosis included the development of leaky gut, gluten, lyme disease, cow dairy, sugar, mercury fillings, and genetics. By treating these factors, along with her chronic stress stemming from childhood, Palmer was able to reduce all her symptoms of MS and restore her health. The good news is that genes play an almost insignificant factor in MS.
Palmer used Alessio Fasano, MD‘s formula for reducing her symptoms of MS = treat the inflammation.
Through her research while she was on her healing journal and during her studies to write her book on reversing autoimmune disorders that will be published in 2019, Palmer groups the main root causes to address in multiple sclerosis:
- Gut health
- Hormone balance
These factors will be addressed in the following Creating Health presentations. In today’s presentation Palmer Kippola focused on food.
Diet and MS
According to Palmers research, multiple autoimmune experts have states that 6–100% of symptoms may be resolved by removing autoimmune trigger foods. When healing your MS with food, the “gold standard” is to:
- Lower inflammation
- Boost energy
- Identify food sensitivities
- Find foods that resonate
- Unburden your immune system
- Relieve unwanted symptoms
To begin to heal your MS by lowering the inflammation, you must first find the foods that trigger our system the most. Palmer Kippola recommends doing what she calls a food vacation. Spending 30 days without eating any of the main trigger foods and then incorporating them back into our diet one by one to discover which ones trigger inflammation. Doing a 30 days food diet gives the body sufficient time to repair and for us to determine if diet will help our symptoms of MS.
Palmer’s diet for MS is largely influenced by Dr. Terry Wahls, MD, who was propelled to fame with her inspirational TEDx talk. She later wrote a book to share how a Paleo lifestyle and specific nutritional protocol fueled her astonishing journey from being bound to a tilt-recline wheelchair to enjoying the freedom of riding miles on her bicycle “The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles”
Palmer prioritizes the elimination of gluten. It was the main factor in her MS. She immediately noticed improvements by eliminating this food. This might not be the main trigger of your MS, but, according to David Perlmutter, MD in “Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers” to control our health outcomes through diet, even if we have a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer’s or MS, we need to consider the effects of grains in the brain. In his book, he also dispels the popular myths that a low-fat, high-carb diet is good and cholesterol is bad, and offers a simple path to prevention and even disease reversal.
