Supplements from “7 Secrets About MS…” webinar

SUPPLEMENTS THAT CAN HELP REDUCE
THE SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH MS

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID – 200mg, four times daily

Alpha Lipoic Acid is found in almost all foods, but slightly more so in kidney, liver, spinach, and broccoli. Studies of aging rats have suggested that the use of alpha lipoic acid may help in delaying the structural decay of the mitochondrial decay. The mitochondria are sometimes described as “cellular power plants” because they generate most of the cell’s supply of chemical energy.

GLUTATHIONE – 600mg, once daily

Glutathione also helps to keep the power plant of the cell healthy. Among other things, it detoxifies a by-product of cell metabolism. The by-product is called methylglyoxal.

MAGNESIUM – 400mg, once daily

There is a good chance that calcium inside a cell is part of the problem in MS. Magnesium helps to keep the calcium in check.

CATALASE – 3000 Baker Units (BUs), once daily

Part of the problem in MS is the constant struggle of the cells to create the proper balance (homeostasis). In doing so on a continuous basis, another by-product produced is hydrogen peroxide. This product is harmful to the cell. Catalase neutralizes it.

CAPSAICIN – 2mg, twice daily

Capsaicin is one of the main substances in chili peppers. After a period of time, the intake of capsaicin depletes the nerve cell of a substance that causes the cell to transmit the sensation of pain. The pain then becomes less.

  1. I did not hear this webinar and am unable to ge it to load now. But will continue to try. Is it recommended to take all these supplements as well as the ones mentioned on the fireside chat…Vit D3, omega, DHEA

    If I choose to get most of my fruit and veg through preparing smoothies, how much protein should I consume daily and is getting this through nuts and seeds as beneficial as through fish and chicken.

  2. I have not been able to get catalase can i replace it with something else. Thank You for everything,
    Marlene;

  3. Thank you so much for doing this!!!! I had a hard time catching all that he said about the supplements and being able to see them in writing helps tremendously! I love all the help we are getting from all of you!
    What does Dr. Cartwright feel is the best course for someone like me who hAs in the last year transitioned to SPMS? CCSVI, etc?

  4. Thank you thank you thank you so much for this information.

    I thank God for gifted & compassionate doctors & researchers who have compiled all this information.

    i will start taking all the supplements advised as soon as possible. I’ve been taking just a few of them already.

    I am have been a vegetarian (lacto ovo)for 15 years about as long as i have had MS, but i do have some fish occasionally -like fresh salmon. Are sardines in tin ok?. I will immediately stop eating any dairy products or Calcium supplements as my local doctor has prescribed.

    Would sesame seeds be ok to have on a daily basis over ceareals? I usually eat hot cooked cereal of porridrge with oats & other grains each day, but after listening to this video i will discontinue this till i find some gluten free grains to substitulte for breakfasts.

    I’d like to know if possible what cereals & breads would be best to have for MS without gluten? Would corn meal or Polenta be ok?

    God bless all of you involved in making this information available to those afflicted with MS.

  5. Thank you, Dr. Cartwright, for sharing all your knowledge. All the questions I had have already been asked so I’ll just wait for those to be answered. Hope you get well soon.

  6. I have just begun to take in some of the information you have sent through while I am waiting for your book to arrive.
    Already you have given us some hope through the Chat, Dr Cartwright and the supplement list.
    I will take the supplements list to my daughter tomorrow along with the diet tips. This is a real start for her and I am grateful to you.
    Much appreciation and thanks.
    We will be in touch and my daughter will have her own computer soon so she will be able to communicate herself.
    Bless you.
    Namaste

  7. The list of supplements adviseed — is the above list the complete list? Is there a place where we can see the entire list of supplements advised as well as all the foods we should avoid without going through the health coaching?

    I have a specific question about Calcium supplements — do I read that we should stop taking them due to the danger of clacium build-up? What if you have been told you have osteoporisis or are orthopenic (on your way to osteoporosis), and must take calcium to maintain bone strength — what should you do in that instance?

    I have had MS for 32+ years, have taken many supplements over the years, tried different diets (low carb/ no processed stuff/ gluten free, low fat, etc and currently try to adhere to all of the above). I’m also a nurse, read lots of research, am open to doing anything. I’m in pretty good shape, swim 2-3 times a week and bike — biggest problem spasticity in my legs (hyperreflexia/ trmendous stiffness/ clonus) which makes it difficult to walk due to the unsteadiness that brings. Did Sue Ellen have spasticity in addition to her weakness/ fatigue/ visual symptoms? Did that respond to the detox/ food regimen/ supplement program?

    So many questions — thanks for any insight you may be able to bring.

    As an aside, it is difficult if not impossible to understand Dr. Cartwright speaking in the recordings available on this site.

    To everyone’s health!

  8. My insurance was cancelled after my husband died. I have been off meds since 12/08. How will I start. To do this now? Do I stay med free or start taking now?

  9. I would like to say that after listening to your webinar`s health coach on MS, i would say that i`ve learned a lot. however, to those that are taking care of one who is a victim of this disease , you got to be very patient with them.

    My experience with my with Katrina has proven to be great help in developing patience, before knowing about (MS)Multiple Sclerosis i thought that it was just a mental thing, because where i`m from this disease very few people might know about it.

    The people with this disease are subject to become very depressed, some suicidal,irritated and many a time staying quiet while thinking about the times when they had control of everything and now they have to depend on some one else to do everything for them.

    Folks, please be patient, try and understand what they are going through, and try puting yourself in their position. I believe that one of the key factors in the developement of great health to an MS patient is a healthy relationship with the caregiver and family members.

    Katrina and I do have great times together, we talk, laugh, we play with each other a lot and also i don`t want to be too froward, husbands wives, please pay great attention to the affectionate nature and feeling of spouse because they always want your affection to feel confident that you still love them with the same affection as when they were whole.

    To the none relative caregivers, please do not annoyed when they might say something that makes no sence at all, thats just the brain being cofused with what they really want to say, most times they think that they`ve told you or answered you correctly only to find out that their mouth did not say what their brain would allow them to say.

    My wife can`t do anything for herself, even to simply scrach her head so it is very frustrating for her.

    and one last thing, we have a very close relationship with Je`sus Christ and his word of knowledge, so we try very mutch to follow his commandment.

    Thank You:
    Earl

  10. Hi

    Can anyone help me with spasticity please, I have had MS for mearly 30 years and am still ambulant but walk with a stick now and have balance problems.

    Can anyone suggest anything that would help,

    Thankyou very much in advance!

  11. Suzie… for the spasticity problem.. I have found relief out of a good massaging tool. Mine is a Homedics, it weighs about 8lbs, worth about $100 Canadian, just to give you an idea of the quality. Because of the weight, well it really hurts to massage the muscles, but I find where it hurts the worst, its the most advantageous to massage. I guess it stimulates enough circulation to help. Hope this helps.

  12. Thank you so much for all of the great info. What is the best help for urinary frequency and urgency? I can’t go anywhere without knowing where the bathroom is.

    Thanks
    Wendy

  13. are these the only supplement you recommend my wife was diagnosed with ms 2 years ago and refusses to take meds please let me know how to help her thank you

  14. Hello Mr. Cartwright.

    I am Amelica. I was attending to your 6 weeks seminar and since than I was searching about wheat.Dr Brian Clement from HYPOCRATE INSTITUTE from PALM BEACH, FLORIDA says that wheat can be found only in the cereal(grain) not in the green juice.I also searched about catalase and I found that the green part of the wheat you can find in capsules in health food store and it is consider a catalase too. What do you think about all this? What is your advice? because I get confuse some times.

  15. I am Amelica again. Sorry I made a mistake in my previous comment instead to write gluten in wheat(cereal) I wrote wheat.

  16. Swanson Vitamins carries SOD….is this the same as catalase?? And it is not measured in Bakers Units. Please clarify. I still cannot agree with discontinuing calcium supplements. I would like to hear more proof. I am fighting MS AND osteopenia. I take calcium, silica, D3, K2, potassium, magnesium and CoQ10 all for bone health.

  17. I AM 68, W/PRIMARY CHRONIC PROGRESSING MS FOR 16YRS. NOW ON THE W/CHAIR,I DON’T TAKE ANY MEDICINE JUST SUPPLEMENTS AS EVENING PRIMROSE OIL ,GARLIC,FISH OIL,CRANBERRY,AND VIT.C AND D3 ALSO I TAKE FISH OIL 1200MG+OMEGA3.. IT IS TOO MUCH ? MY MAJOR PROBLEM IS AN ELECTRICAL SHOT SENSATION ON MY LEFT LEG AND NOW PINS AND NEEDLES ON MY BACK ON FEET ..I TRY YOUR DIET W/NO GLUTEN AND NO DAIRY I KNOW IT IS HARD BUT IT HELPS ,I NEED MY HUSBAND HELP W/COOKING .I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A BRAND TO TRUST FOR HEALTHY PRODUCTS …..THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE NATURAL WAY YOU HELP PEOPLE LIKE ME……GOD BLESS YOU !

  18. EARL GARCIA you wrote a very succinct letter. Thank you.

    I have had MS for 17 yrs. Ive been following diet and taking vitamins for one year now with slight improvement such as no purple feet anymore. And in Australia during summer that is good. What took a long time to get the disease so it may take to cure myself. With God and my husband by my side.

  19. Praising God for His marvelous help to us in all situations is the best medicine anyone can take. Ask for prayers from those you trust and know are like-minded. * Dr. Cartwright’s supplement and dietary suggestions are excellent, as well.

    Listen to classical music, no words, just soothing beautiful melodies. Mozart is a terrific example!

    Exercise! Moderately, always to your ability and level. Yoga is good, but many poses must be modified for them to be helpful to you. Dahn Yoga (South Korean) is a personal favorite for its emphasis on stretching and gentle movements. On my website is the address to purchase a DVD made especially for and by MS students. YOU CAN DO IT!

    God bless you, Judith Norris

  20. I have really enjoyed your time with all of us that have MS. It has been very helpful. I have read some of the questions that people have, but I am not for sure were to find the answers. Also, I don’t see how much the at home course will cost.
    Thanks for everything,
    Susan

  21. I have had MS for 15 years or since I was diagonosed.(63 now) I have kept myself moving no matter what. My feet really hurt after I have been on them. Walk with a cane as balance is really bad and the right leg is the most affected. Feet feel heavy most of the time. No meds at all for MS but have heart pills as I had a heart attack 10 years ago. My Neurologists does not give me any meds as he says they do more harm than good. He recommends supplements like Vit D- 1000 units 3 times a day I take robaxacet and tylenol only. Heat really bothers me so I try to remain cool and its not hard here in Winnipeg, Mb as it gets to minus 30 or more in the winter. Summer is a bit different. Humidity can be a pain. I am going to try these extra supplements and try not to eat yogurt and cheese too much even though I have Osto. Good luck everyone and even though we all have our mood swings and depression times I find that having a positive attitude and throwing the word”CAN’t” out of my vocabulary really helps me. Try it and maybe it will work for you too. I sometimes don’t feel like getting out of bed somedays and feeling sorry for myself(as I was a very active person) but I get mad at myself and get moving while I still can and I tell myself that there are more people out there worse off than me. That helps also.

  22. MY C.A.M. NURSE HAD ME TAKE A SPECTRA CELL TEST FOR VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES. RESULTS INDICATED DEFICIENT IN B-12, OLEIC ACID—OMEGA 9 AND ANTIOXIDANTS. OTHER TESTS…ALLERGIC TO GLUTEN, DAIRY AND SOY.

  23. Can one take a calcium magnesium supplement Here are the contents of the supplement Calacium lactate 310mg; Magnesium as citrate 55mg;Betaine HCL 300MG;SPLEEN (BOVINE) 300MG; PEPPERMINT LEAF 150MG – FROM ENZYME PROCESS RANGE I TAKE 4 AT NIGHT.

  24. FYI: The book titled, “Bragg The Miracle of Fasting” has been a tremendous source of inspiration to me. In a nut shell, you have to earn your health given god and the environment willing.
    “The MS Recovery Diet” is a book written in 2007 by a woman with a PHD
    and MS. It is also a worthy resource in the struggle to get well.
    Another book called, “The Most Frequently Asked Questions” by Dr Maras
    regarding wellness is the foundation I have based my latest and most successful attempt to optimize my health.
