Nervous Disorders

Afflictions of the brain and spinal cord and problems in the peripheral nervous system are classed as nervous disorders. Included in this type of problem is sclerosis, hardening of the brain or spinal cord tissues and various types of palsy. Multiple sclerosis is related to the brain and spinal cord and involves little patches of hardened or deadened tissue. Depending on the body parts, which are connected with the affected nervous tissue, vision, speech or other body functions may be impaired. Palsy is either temporary or permanent partial paralysis.

Recommended Action

In advanced cases of nerve disorder, often little can be done, but if nothing is tried little gain can be expected. To eliminate toxic wastes from damaged and degenerating nervous tissue, cleanse the bowel and the blood and adopt a diet low in mucus. Nervine and antispasmodic herbs are essential for regenerating and renewing the nervous system. Cayenne, which has antispasmodic qualities and is a powerful circulatory stimulant and nutritive tonic, has been known to resolve some cases of temporary paralysis. Calcium and Magnesium, principal ingredients of the myelin sheath, which surrounds the nerves and nerve cells, can be found in plentiful supply in alfalfa. A few drops of garlic oil followed by B & B Tincture drops in the ear will be beneficial in helping to rebuild the motor nerve centres at the base of the brain. Krill / Black Currant Oil can help to build the myelin sheath.
