Just hearing the name of this disease can inspire fear. It is a strange disease, progressive and insidious, and it can have tragic consequences for the rest of one’s life. Multiple sclerosis, often abbreviated to MS, is not known among people in less developed parts of the world, where the diet is still 100 per cent natural and unadulterated. Hence it must be a disease of our modern civilised world, a typical disease caused by civilisation.
It is understandable that we want to know the cause of an illness, and it is no different with multiple sclerosis. Unfortunately, however, the cause of this dreaded affliction has not yet been conclusively pinpointed despite continuous research. Although there is no certainty, the symptoms seem to suggest a pathogenic agent, but it has not yet been identified. It is also thought that the reason that some people are susceptible to this agent is probably a deficiency of some vital substances.
