Overcoming Autoimmune Disorders: Multiple Sclerosis

By John M. Burgstiner
 

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a progressive, degenerative autoimmune disorder in which the immune system's white blood cells attack the myelin sheath, the protective lining that surrounds nerve cells.  The disorder, which causes (among other things) blurred vision, weakness, chronic muscle pain and stiffness, balance and coordination problems, and memory loss affects more than 2.5 million people worldwide.  Women are affected nearly twice as often as men.
