Neuropathologist Investigates the Link Between Beets & MS

Dr Raymond Sobel’s research focuses on the effects of a compound found in sugar beets called Azetidine-2-carboxylic acid (Aze). Sugar beets are used in meat and dairy products and their geographical use resembles that of MS incidence. If susceptibility to MS is due at least in part to exposure to a dietary component early in life, this will suggest ways to prevent and perhaps treat MS.

Multiple Sclerosis & Insulin Resistance Connection – How to correct it – Ayurveda

In this video Nishal Ramnunan, doctor of Ayurvedic medicine, discusses the link between Multiple Sclerosis and Insulin Resistance and how both develop simultaneously as a result of stress.

MS is characterized by an auto-immune reaction that involves the breakdown of Myelin (the insulation around neurons) via the process of neuro-inflammation. Inflammation is caused by several factors, however, the fact that all MS patients tend to also have insulin resistance, gives us the clue that “stress” may play a central role in this disease. On the other hand, insulin resistance may be linked to the development of MS too. Either way, both stress and Insulin resistance should be corrected in order to more effectively treat MS.
