Multiple Sclerosis is recognised as a growing problem. In some Scandinavian countries, Holland, Britain and North America, the number of sufferers is rising by the day. In the UK alone, it is estimated that between 50,000 and 60,000 people suffer from this debilitating disease; in the USA figures of 350,000 are quoted. What are the causes of the problem? And what can be done about it? Could it be possible to prevent MS? When we look at the countries where there is no occurrence of MS whatsoever; the immediate answer is YES.
Jan de Vries has studied and treated Multiple Sclerosis for over 45 years. He has learned that every MS patient is different and that their problems must be treated individually. He emphasises the importance of diet and environment sufferers must build up their immune system. Even the smallest interference with that delicate mechanism, the human body, can trigger off problems out of all proportion to the cause. For example, silver mercury amalgam fillings in teeth can affect your health.
This book draws attention to a variety of factors and explains how they can be dealt with to improve the quality of life for all MS sufferers. It is a relevant and important alternative approach to the problem.
