Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis, Vertigo and Migraines in West Des MoinesMultiple sclerosis is believed to be an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks its own tissue, specifically the myelin around the nerves, slowing down its ability to transport messages to and from the brain.1  This results in symptoms such as numbness or weakness in one or more limbs, partial or complete loss of vision, double or blurry vision, electric shock sensations, tremors, slurred speech, fatigue, dizziness or vertigo, migraines and autonomic dysfunction.  A dysfunction in the autonomic nervous system is a problem in the nerves that control those “automatic” things your body does to survive such as bladder control, breathing, digestion, and more affecting 45-84% of patients with multiple sclerosis. 2

Promising research is showing a link between an often overlooked cranial nerve known as the vagus nerve and the part it plays in the immune system. 4 A recent article stated the future of medicine lies in further understanding the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve is a two-way messenger which sends information from the brain to the organs of the body and back to the brain.  Any disruption or interference in this communication would cause a decrease in vagal tone which leads to more or worsening symptoms.

Natural Approach to Multiple Sclerosis in West Des Moines

Dr. Laurel Griffin studies the area of the nervous system known as the brain stem where the vagus nerve originates. The vagus nerve is responsible for resetting the immune system as well as shutting of proteins that cause demyelination, among other things.  Her specialized scientific technique has been able to help those diagnosed with multiple sclerosis regain control of their bladder, improve vision and eye movement, improve digestion, decrease in frequency or dizziness and allow patients to have better days than before.

Her findings are further supported by Dr. Erin Elster’s published case study where a patient with MS was under care for 4 months and all symptoms related to the MS were absent. A follow up MRI demonstrated no new lesions and a reduction in intensity of the original lesions.3  Dr. Elster and Dr. Griffin continue to successfully help those suffering with multiple sclerosis with an approach that is natural and non-invasive.
