Vitamin D Key Factor in Multiple Sclerosis
Did you know that multiple sclerosis (MS) has been directly linked with a Vitamin D deficiency?
I am amused which “research studies” are picked to be shared with the public, and those which will never see the light of day.
One such study was published in the prestigious Journal of the Neurological Sciences in Oct. 2009:
“Clinical evidence suggests an important role of Vitamin D as a modifiable risk factor in MS. Low circulating levels of Vitamin D have been found in MS patients, especially during relapses, suggesting that Vitamin D could be involved in the regulation of the clinical disease activity.“
This study wasn’t alone.
There are many supporting the idea that Vitamin D is a pivotal factor in the prevention and treatment of MS. A few months early (April 2009), the following excerpt from another study was released in the same journal:
“From a purely medical point of view, Vitamin D supplementation appears in this light to be unavoidable in order to improve the general state of these patients. Furthermore, it cannot currently be ruled out that this supplementation could also be neurologically beneficial.”
Now, why hasn’t the public heard about these studies?
There are those who believe the idea of Vitamin D (a simple Vitamin/hormone) is capable of (dare I say) curing MS (there I said it!) While others believe it is is nothing more than holistic hoopla. Well, Surprise! Great news!
This “hoopla” is now backed up by research!
Personally, I started taking took 10, 000 IU of Vitamin D over ten years ago, with zero ill-effects! What have experienced is zero neurological symptoms and zero joint pain (and I now teach 7 fitness classes per week). Purely a coincidence?
