How Nicole Manages Multiple Sclerosis

The #1 thing Nicole did was to get an IGG test (you can do them online or see a naturopath) to see how she needed to alter her diet for optimum health. For her gluten turned out to be a big no-no. She also sticks to a low sugar diet with very few to no processed foods. For her, a ketogenic diet along with intermittent fasting is ideal. She alternates this with an anti-inflammatory diet, which works well for her. She finds that adding freshly ground flax seeds into her diet is helpful. She has progressive Multiple Sclerosis (though it is not currently progressing). Ultimately, diet is really important in managing MS.

Here are some of the things she incorporate into her MS management:

  • She give gratitude daily and she tries to stay in the present moment. (This is very important! The mind-body connection is HUGE!)
  • She spends time in nature daily (Nature connection is a big piece of total health for her)
  • She spends time away from all media and caries a personal anti-EMF device. She also has one to protect her and her family at home.

She takes specific vitamins and herbal remedies. Below is what she takes daily for Multiple Sclerosis management:

  • A high-dose Biotin and Alpha-Lipoic Acid. She takes 100mg Biotin three times every day (300mg a day total).
  • 4000 units Vitamin D drops
  • Omega 3s
  • Multi-Vitamin + Ca/Mg blend
  • Tru Niagen (nicotinamide riboside)
  • Probiotics
  • Vitamin B12
  • Lion’s Mane Mushroom Tincture. Lion’s Mane is known to boost mental functioning and stimulate Nerve Growth Factor (NGF).  Studies show great potential for myelination and regeneration of nerves.
  • Reishi Mushroom Tincture. She takes this tincture daily as Reishi mushrooms are adaptogens which help deal with the negative effects of stress, addressing issues such as increased inflammation, depleted energy levels, damaged blood vessels, and various types of hormonal imbalances. It also has been shown to have neuroprotective effects and, because many autoimmune illnesses are inflammatory in nature.
  • Turkey Tail Mushroom Tincture. It works well for leaky gut, as turkey tail has prebiotics that helps balance the digestive system and helps with Candida overgrowth. It is also been shown to be a great cancer preventative, an anti-inflammatory, and more.

For preventing general illness (which causes the dreaded immune response that then causes MS to flare up) she rely on the healing trinity of Elderberry Tincture, Usnea Spray, and First Aid Salve.

The only Western medicine she uses to is a low-dose Naltrexone for fatigue. For her, it has had no negative side effects, and it helps.

She tries to keep leaky gut at bay. Plantain tincture works well for this as does Turkey Tail and of course probiotics. She also uses a Daily Organic Bone Broth.

She keeps inflammation down as well with Reishi Mushroom Tincture and Turmeric.
