Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune condition of the myelin sheath that surrounds the nerve cells. In autoimmunity, the person’s immune system is failing to see the difference between ‘self’ and ‘non-self* – thereby attacking oneself. Every person with an autoimmune process going on has multiple triggers that are keeping the system over-active. The key is finding those and modifying them.

When it comes to autoimmunity, functional medicine takes a comprehensive view of the individual’s health, considering various factors such as genetics, environmental influences, lifestyle choices, and the gut microbiome. The goal is to restore balance and optimize the body’s natural functions.
