Chronic sinusitis is linked to Multiple Sclerosis

Lately, I have been seeing quite a number of autoimmune related cases in my clinical practice.

Just a note on this condition. Autoimmune disease is an abnormal reaction of the body to ‘attack’ its own cells. Examples are multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, chronic allergies, certain skin diseases and psoriasis and cancer.

Let’s take an example. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease characterized by brain and spinal cord disorders with damage to nerve sheaths. Symptoms include pins and needles in arms and legs, muscle cramps, weakness of legs, walking difficulty, fatigue all the time, vertigo and blurring of vision.

There are currently no cure from the conventional medicine point of view. Often steroids and chemo drugs are prescribed which can further lower the person’s immunity. Phytotherapy can be a good alternative as it attempts to treat the whole person; not only to manage the symptoms but to provide optimal functioning of the body without ‘destroying’ the body’s immune system.

Besides genetic predisposition, MS is strongly related to immune dysregulation. This dysregulation are probably due to:

– Chronic sinusitis

– activation of endogenous viruses

– exposure to solvent such as mercury ( fish and sea foods ??)

– food intolerance such as dairy

– general poor immunity

– Smoking

– Chronic stress – worry, low self esteem, not loving yourself ( read my book first Credo)

– Bowel flora dysbiosis

Therefore, if sinusitis or any other allergy related conditions are continuously treated with suppression medication, bowel flora and tissue membrane may be affected. This in turn increases the risk of autoimmune conditions. Phytomedicine is effective to treat the root cause of sinusitis without weakening gut flora and tissue integrity.

Just keep this in mind – Chronic diseases are a result of suppression of acute conditions.
