Alternative Therapies for Multiple Sclerosis using Ancient Chinese Remedies
Before looking for alternative therapies for multiple sclerosis one must look at the disease itself. Multiple sclerosis is a progressive CNS disease characterized by disseminated patches of demyelination in the brain and spinal cord, resulting in multiple and varied neurological symptoms and signs, usually with remissions and exacerbations. The onset of multiple sclerosis is usually insidious with the most frequent symptoms being paresthesias in one or more extremities, the trunk or one side of the face. Symptoms may include weakness of a leg or hand, visual disturbances, temporary weakness of an extremity, minor gait disturbances, difficulties with bladder control or vertigo. Excess heat may exaggerate symptoms and signs. The severity of symptoms may vary depending on the individual.

”I have been a patient of Dr. Berg for more than 5 years. I moved to Phoenix 7 years ago from upstate New York primarily for health reasons. You see, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 28 years ago. During that time I have had some remitting/relapsing attacks that slowly left me with lingering disabilities such as leg strength, equilibrium issues, and overall strength in my extremities. My neurologist had tried the latest new procedures but still the disease was progressing. By chance I had gone to see Dr. Berg for some flaring back issues and talked to him about my MS situation. He told me that he also practiced acupuncture and had treated patients with similar disabilities. I figured that I had nothing to lose and started at that time with weekly acupuncture treatments. Almost immediately I had positive results. In fact my leg strength returned to a level where I was able to bowl in a league again and even had enough strength to start a workout regimen. I am now on a once a month maintenance acupuncture treatment and not only am I bowling but golfing every weekend as well. I would highly recommend acupuncture treatments with Dr. Berg. Not only as a treatment for MS but for many other ailments. Billions of Chinese can’t be all wrong; they have been practicing these remedies for centuries.
