MS is classified today as an autoimmune disease. The body’s immune system cannot differentiate between its own tissue components and foreign tissue. With Ms the gliacells and the neurons in the brain and in the spinal cord are the target of attack. Functions in the blood brain barrier, in certain areas, are set off by continuous and ever changing infections (see chrono immunology). These areas can pass through certain cells of the body’s immune system resulting in damage to the important myelin sheath. The extent of this focus and its localisation shows itself in the many and varied symptoms of MS.
The primary effect of this disease is the destruction of the myelin sheath of the central nervous system. This leads to functional disabilities which are responsible for disturbances in the whole body.
The cause of this is seen today partly as a genetic disposition ( see chromosome aberration test). But this alone does not lead to an outbreak of the illness. There are more unknown factors or triggers which determine this disease. Only then does this lead to the wrong messages being sent to the body’s immune system.
Our first assumption that we can influence this disease through our food intake has been confirmed through the Kluge therapy. Therefore it seems justified to discuss the metabolic component of MS.
Until today there is no therapy which can heal MS. It seems to be, however, that there are possibilities which can repress the symptoms when the body’s own repair mechanism is supported.
