nervous systemNUCCA and Multiple Sclerosis

When dealing with multiple sclerosis, Seattle residents often want to find a natural treatment. Most prescription medications only work to manage symptoms, whereas natural methods are designed to mitigate symptoms by treating potential underlying causes of the condition. I’ve been helping people with multiple sclerosis for over 20 years live healthier lives without the use of drugs or surgery. Let’s consider some of the natural methods I use or recommend with patients.

One reason patients seek natural multiple sclerosis treatments in Seattle is the fact the MS drugs have many side effects. NUCCA, on the other hand, frequently offers side effect free relief from multiple sclerosis symptoms. How? Cerebrospinal fluid obstruction are being looked at as a potential cause of MS or of symptom flare ups. The C1 and C2 vertebrae can cause just such an obstruction if they are out of alignment. An upper neck adjustment to these two vertebrae may provide ongoing and even instant relief.


Multiple Sclerosis Seattle

While researchers continue to look for a cure to this terrible condition, it is important to help sufferers to feel as comfortable as possible. Many studies and testimonies point to upper cervical chiropractic as one of the best natural approaches to multiple sclerosis. Seattle Washington residents with MS can still live a long and full life through the combination of medical and alternative health treatments. The good news is that a natural approach like upper cervical chiropractic does not have side effects and may be able to help a person get by with fewer or no drugs that cause such unwanted side effects.

Perhaps the biggest trigger of multiple sclerosis flare ups is stress, and thus many patients seek stress relieving natural remedies. We find that the combination of NUCCA and massage therapy can be very effective at reducing stress and improving overall quality of life for those suffering with MS.

Whether you are using a combination of prescription drugs, vitamins and supplements, relaxation techniques, or any other kind of natural treatment, we encourage you to investigate the NUCCA approach. To learn more simply click the button below to watch our series on multiple sclerosis.
