Spasticity affects up to 80% of people diagnosed with MS. It is extremely painful and can cause a loss of mobility. Several parasites are known to cause spasticity and when they are treated effectively, these symptoms stop. This post discusses spasticity and how to recover from it and other MS symptoms by treating the parasites that cause the disease.
What is spasticity?
Spasticity is a common symptom of MS where people complain of muscle stiffness or tightness. It occurs in a variety of conditions like stroke, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury and multiple sclerosis. In these conditions, the normal communication between the brain and muscles is disrupted. When muscles do not receive a message from the brain to relax, muscle spasms or contractions occur.
In multiple sclerosis, lesions or pockets of inflammation are found in the central nervous system (CNS). The inflammation causes damage to nerves which results in a disruption of communication. Experts don’t know what causes the lesions. It is assumed that the immune system is attacking nerve tissue for some unknown reason.
In science, it is understood that many different parasites can cause lesions in the CNS. CLICK HEREto learn more about parasites that cause lesions in the central nervous system.
Spasticity is exhibited in 3 ways:
- A limb that is hard to bend
- Clonus – a muscle bounces when you try to stretch it
- A painful Charlie horse.
These symptoms can last for long periods of time, causing muscle, joint and bone problems.
Although spasticity can occur in any limb, it is much more common in the legs. Muscles become so tight that bent limbs are difficult to straighten or limbs remain straight and are difficult to bend.
Spasticity may be aggravated by sudden movements or position changes, extremes of temperature, humidity or infections, and can even be triggered by tight clothing.
Spasticity makes stretching the muscle much more difficult. If left untreated, spasticity can also lead to joints in the arm and leg to be stuck or frozen in an abnormal and possibly painful position. This is called contracture. Common examples of spasticity include a tight fist with a bent wrist and elbow and / or arm pressed against the chest.
Spasticity in the leg muscles can cause stiffness in the knees and ankles, as well as drop foot or curled toes. Tendons and muscles can shorten overtime and can affect the mobility of the joint.
Muscle spasms can also cause problems with balance and coordination, muscle movement, pain and decreased quality of life.
Treatment options include a brace, frequent movement, stretching and range of motion exercise, oral medication, injections and surgery.
The cause of spasticity. What has been shown in science
For over 100 years veterinarians have known that when small nematode worms infect the CNS of domestic animals, they suffer from fatigue, spasticity, drop foot, numbness and blindness, poor mobility, loss of balance and coordination, paralysis and other symptoms similar to MS.[i] US pathologist Dr. Alan MacDonald discovered these small nematode worms in the central nervous system of every MS subject he tested.
Pinworms and ascaris worm infestations have also been associated with painful muscle spasms.[iii]
Malaria is the most common parasitic disease worldwide.[iv] It was endemic in many areas of Canada and the United States during the 19th and early 20th centuries.[v] The protist that causes Malaria can cause severe shakes, muscle spasms and muscle contractures.[vi] [vii]
The bacteria that cause Lyme disease can infect tendons, muscles, intervertebral discs, joints, ligaments, and the linings of nerves including in the spine, causing inflammation, muscle spasms, and pain.[viii]
Tapeworms may lead to a serious infection called cysticercosis and cause muscle twitching and spasms.[ix]
A case study documented that spinal cord schistosomiasis (flukes) caused spasticity in a US patient.[x]
This is just a small sample of parasites that are known to cause muscle spasms and spasticity in humans.
If science has shown that various parasites can cause spasticity, why are researchers not studying this? Why do they feel that there is no value in identifying which parasites cause spasticity and other neurological symptoms in MS when they don’t know what causes MS? Why are they fixated on believing that the immune system is the problem?
How to recover from spasticity:
Spasticity is brutal, so it is incredibly frustrating that there are simple steps to relieve and eventually and completely resolve this horrible symptom (as well as other symptoms of MS), yet our healthcare professionals don’t know these steps, so their patients suffer needlessly. Here are the simple steps to recovery:
1. Follow the Live Disease Free diet.
Spasticity is caused by parasites which thrive on carbohydrates and simple sugars. When carbohydrates in the diet are decreased to 30 – 40 total grams of carbs per day, the parasites are less active, the immune system becomes less active, inflammation decreases and people notice significant symptom improvements, including less spasticity. This can happen in as little as two weeks. CLICK HERE for the Live Disease Free Guidelines.
2. Optimize nutrition in the diet and take plant sourced vitamin and mineral supplements.
Parasites produce acids which make us more acidic. The body uses minerals to buffer or neutralize these acids, which can lead to a mineral deficiency. Also, commercial factory farming-type practises has resulted in a significant decline in various vitamins and minerals in our fruit and vegetables. When diagnosed with a chronic disease, we have a parasitic infestation. The parasites will consume the nutrients we eat which also makes us more deficient in key nutrients. Calcium, magnesium, potassium and other minerals often help relieve spasticity.
3. Our students have reported that either Hyland Leg Cramp cream or Theraworx foam have provided some relief from muscle spasms.
4. In order to fully recover from spasticity, the parasites must be treated effectively.
Treating a parasitic infestation requires strategy. Parasites drugs on their own are not effective enough to eradicate a parasitic infestation, especially when it is in the central nervous system. It’s very important to first prepare to treat by following the Live Disease Free diet and support the body. This supports immune modulation and will allow people to tolerate parasite treatments better and treat more effectively. Treating a parasitic infestation requires parasite drugs, herbs and oxygen therapies. This combination helps people to recover much quicker.
There are real solutions to recover from parasites today!
To restore health, we must focus on treating the cause of inflammation, which are parasites. First, identify the enemy (parasites), then support the body and treat the parasites while following a holistic approach. When parasitic infections are treated effectively, we can overcome inflammation or disease.
