How Do You Prevent Multiple Sclerosis? Here Are Experts’ Tips; Details Inside
Long before, Multiple Sclerosis has been regarded as a chronic auto-immune disease that is known to have already affected nearly 2.3 million people worldwide that usually cause its victim to experience blurred vision, slurred speech, tremors, extreme fatigue, problems with memory, balance, and walking, and carrying out day-to-day tasks. As of the press time, there is no known cure for the said disease, but through medication and a healthy lifestyle, experts say that these things can help ease symptoms of the condition and prevent it progressing. For people with relapsing-remitting MS and secondary progressive MS, treatment with medicine may reduce the frequency of relapses and delay disability.
How Do You Prevent Multiple Sclerosis?
According to reports revealed by Hindustan Times, with the month of March known as the Multiple Sclerosis Month, a significant number of health experts have rounded up some recent research which suggests how the condition could possibly be prevented and managed at home. That said, researchers said that moving around with the help of the Nintendo Wii Balance Board could be beneficial for MS sufferers. A study conducted in 2014 has found that this type of activity causes changes in brain connections associated with balance and coordination.
Furthermore, as per Everyday Health, geography and sun exposure could also be one of the factors since the link between location and MS risk may be sun exposure or, in a more specific sense, vitamin D levels in the body. Previous research has indicated that adequate vitamin D levels may play a role in protecting against MS. At the moment, a number of studies are already taking place in order to increase scientists' understanding when it comes to the role of vitamin D in preventing MS and as well as exploring whether vitamin D supplementation can reduce disease activity in people who have MS.
Drinking Coffee Linked In MS
Meanwhile, through a 2015 US and Swedish research, it was found that drinking 4 to 6 cups of coffee per day may potentially lower the risk of being inflicted by multiple sclerosis. In addition, with caffeine intake previously associated with a lower risk of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases, the researchers believe their results also support the theory that caffeine may have a protective effect on the brain.
