What is multiple sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease that attacks the nervous system – the brain and spinal cord. It is an unpredictable disease, disabling some people more quickly and others more slowly. Some may experience a few years of no significant progression and then suddenly the disease can become active and the progression to disability can accelerate.
A nerve impulse is an electrical signal that travels along a nerve. MS attacks the myelin sheath, the fatty insulation around each nerve, that allows the nerve impulse to travel at a very high speed.
As the myelin becomes inflamed and gradually breaks down, scar tissue sets in and then the nerve can no longer efficiently carry electric signals between the brain and body. This results in impaired communication and loss of function, or disability.
inflammation and scar tissue > impaired communication > loss of function
MS can be responsible for loss of function in many parts of the body, including impairment to mobility, speech, the bladder, the brain, and sensory functions such as sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing.
What causes multiple sclerosis?
Standard of care practitioners believe that the cause of MS is unknown and there is no cure. Disease modifying drugs are used to potentially slow down the progression to disability.
However, ample research shows that multiple sclerosis is caused by chronic silent infections in the body. Parasites, fungus and bacterial infections are always present in people who suffer with MS and if they are treated effectively, it is possible to recover from MS.

What types of infections cause MS?
For at least 30 years, a small number of forward-thinking medically trained practitioners understood that fungal overgrowth was always present in those who suffer with multiple sclerosis. Years later, Chlamydia pneumoniae and the vector-borne infections associated with Lyme disease were also identified in patients diagnosed with MS. More recent research shows that parasitic infections are likely a major cause of MS symptoms.
In coaching hundreds of students in their recovery of multiple sclerosis in the Live Disease Free Academy, it has become evident that people who suffer with MS are loaded with parasites, fungal overgrowth and bacterial infections. When these infections are treated effectively, the disease goes into remission and the student enjoys life-changing symptom improvement – more than they thought possible. In many cases they experience complete recovery, especially when treated in the early stages of disease.
Is there a cure for MS?
According to the standard of care for multiple sclerosis, there is no cure.
But, as more of us recover, we are proving this statement is incorrect.
When the infections that cause the neurological symptoms associated with MS are treated effectively, the disease process will stop and the MS sufferer will experience a lot of recovery, possibly even full recovery. The sooner the infections are treated the greater the recovery and the easier it is to treat these infections.
What triggers an MS attack?
Multiple sclerosis is caused by an infestation of parasites, fungus and bacterial infections in the body. This invasion causes significant inflammation and immune dysfunction.
When the immune system is compromised, environmental factors such as (but not limited to) high stress, sleep deprivation, other infections, the frequent use of antibiotics, environmental toxins, exposure to wireless radiation and/or mold in the home or working environment, all further weaken the immune system and cause the infections to be more active – consequently triggering an MS attack.
Are MS drugs safe?
I am not a medically trained professional and it’s important to consult with your practitioner before making any changes to your medications.
The vast majority of MS drugs attempt to modify the immune response in a person who suffers with MS. These drugs usually suppress the immune system. One drug will trap lymphocytes in lymph nodes. Other drugs prevent immune cells from entering the central nervous system, while others destroy specific immune cells.
All these treatments leave the MS patient more vulnerable to additional infections and diseases (including cancer) in the future.
How can diet help manage MS symptoms?
The Live Disease Free eating plan nourishes the body while reducing the food to the infections that cause MS. Following this eating plan is vital for recovery, as it causes the infections to be less active, so that inflammation decreases and symptoms improve.
Treating the infections that cause MS is challenging. Therefore, it is important to follow the Live Disease Free eating plan with excellence, so that the infections are easier to treat. This will greatly increase the success of the treatment.
The Live Disease Free eating plan sets the foundation for recovery, and while many students see immediate improvements in their health from simply changing their diets – diet alone is not enough to stop MS.
What are the early signs of MS?
Common early signs of multiple sclerosis include fatigue, brain fog, depression, anxiety, poor digestion, vision impairment (blindness, double vision), tingling, numbness, weakness in legs or arms, pain, dizziness, muscle spasms, poor balance and bladder issues.
It’s so important to pay attention to the early warning signs. The earlier the infections are treated, the quicker the recovery. Early intervention can even result in full recovery.
