How is it that water cures helps those with multiple sclerosis numbness? To understand, you need to know what's causing the numbness and tingling of MS.
Most people have experienced numbness and tingling at some time in their life. In medical terms, it is called paresthesia. The sensation can be either transient or chronic.Transient Paresthesia: can result from panic attacks, hyperventilation and continuous pressure on a nerve. Have you ever experienced sitting on your legs or laying on your arm and it went numb. When the pressure in some way is applied over a nerve in a limb, cutting off the function, the numbness can occur. Once the pressure is removed, the pins and needles feeling will soon subside. Occasionally the recovery will be accompanied by pain.
When pressure is applied to the area over a nerve for long periods of time so that its function is cut off, the result is pain, numbness and or tingling.
When It's A Life Threatening Emergency
The numbness could be due to a blood clot formed from cutting off circulation. This could be a potentially life threatening situation. This is a greater risk in those over 45 years of age. Best to avoid sitting in such a way to put yourself at risk.
If there is minor calf swelling without a lot of pain to your entire leg swelling up with extensive pain, you may have a medical emergency.
Perhaps you remember cells from school. They are basically like balloons with various factories inside their microscopic bodies. Nerve cells on the other hand could be as long as 4 feet. They are designed much differently than regular other cells in the body.
Nerves are not only dependent on hydration to be healthy, they need water to function properly. Water provides hydroelectric energy that helps them function.
Water also provides the protection for the nerve cells. Each of the other cells around the nerve cells, like balloons filled with water, act like cushions. When we are dehydrated, the protection is reduced.
This brings us to the topic of multiple sclerosis.
The numbness and tingling from MS is the same discomfort but for a different reason that what most of us have experienced. When our bodies attack the nerves, the same feeling but from a different cause results.
It should also be noted there is an association with sun exposure (vitamin d) and increased risk. The National MS Society reports that Research points to a decreased blood levels of vitamin D are associated with increased risk of developing MS.Additionally, studies are looking at the neuroprotective benefits of vitamin D.
Other than the sun, vitamin D3 and the companion vitamin K2 MK-7 are water soluble. To get the best benefit from sun exposure (without sun screens) and or D3, we have to be in fluid and electrolyte balance...what the Water Cures Protocol does for our bodies.
Unlike the common thinking, we do not believe the body does thing for no good reason. It is likely those who get MS are genetically susceptible. When considering those who have put their MS in remission using the water cures protocol, we are left with a nagging question. Does dehydration facilitate the progression of the disease?
In MS, the myelin sheath, a fatty substance around the nerve that acts somewhat like an the insulating plastic around wires, becomes damaged. The resulting scar tissues to the myelin and the nerves cause the nerves to misfire resulting in the numerous symptoms.
Is healing of the myelin sheath possible? As recently as 20 years ago, the thought was no. Yet thanks to the work of Augusto Odone and the Myelin Project, we now know that it may be possible to regenerate the myelin sheath.
If you have never seen it, watch the movie, Lorenzo's Oil. It is about his son and their journey to find a viable treatment. His son did not have MS. He was suffering from adenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD).
Lorenzo's oil does not work for MS. It did help prove that we do not know what we do not know. In other words, we cannot say that something can or does not work unless we try and test it. Water Cures has been used and tried for thousands of years now. All we are lacking is the study to prove what so many who have tried it have already found out, that it simply works in so many ways.
If the water cures are started before the damage is permanent, it is possible, as so many have found, to stop the multiple sclerosis numbness and tingling. The Water Cures protocol has eliminated the numbness, tingling and multiple sclerosis pain.
