Natural MS Cure: Government Approved Patent Includes Niacin
There are two major forms of Vitamin B3: niacin and niacinamide. But to go into a bit more detail, niacin (in the body or also known as in vivo) is converted to nicotinamide and then into NAD and NADP, which is used to produce energy via the breakdown of carbohydrates.
Because MS is a neurological disorder, the unfortunate possibility of disability in those diagnosed is common.
As with nearly all disease, modern medicine still does not know the mechanism of how the disease develops in the first place. They only know the effects. Thus, the creation of the multitude of drugs. All with the promise of only slowing the progression of “incurable” diseases.
All Disease Stems From Nutrient Deficiencies
My premise is that all disease is a deficiency of some nutrient (or many) and/or stress induced. Naturally, stress is a major cause of deficiencies so around and around this cycle of disease we go.
Luckily however, the idea of “incurable” is not within the premise of the holistic model of thinking!
Currently, there is much research being done as to certain nutritional deficiencies and how that relates to MS. Some of the more popular research is regarding Vitamins D and B12. However, there are others that are gaining more steam and fast becoming treatments for this disease as well.
Furthermore, the idea that a single deficiency causes multiple deficiencies is even starting to gain some attention by the medical profession. Since the human body relies on its biological functions to work in conjunction with one another, the idea of “holistic” medicine is gaining more popularity among the general public. People are simply getting tired of the never-ending “drug solution” to everything!
As mentioned, disability is a major concern for MS suffers. However, this does not need to be the case. Research is proving that by giving the NAD precursor, niacin, the levels of NAD increase in the spinal cord preventing (and even reversing!) axon degeneration.
So much attention has been given to niacin that in 2004, the government approved a patent for a natural cure of MS, which includes niacin!
Funny, once again I seemed to have missed this breaking news on the cable news channels!
It is the “flush” that is important in order to expand the capillaries, flooding the body with much needed nutrients. Many doctors believe that this is vital for the rebuilding of the damaged myelin sheath, which is the reason why MS is such a potentially debilitating disease.
Why isn’t this information common news among medical doctors and MS patients?
