MS Spotlight: Ann Boroch

She is also a successful Naturopath, it was a long road to recovery but now has her Multiple sclerosis under control


At age 24 Ann’s life came to a screeching halt, as she sat in a restaurant she lost the ability to breathe, swallow and move for several seconds. And then her body started to spasm uncontrollably. What looked like a seizure was actually an immune response attack. After extensive medical testing Ann was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), an autoimmune condition. The prognosis was not good. She was told to prepare for chemotherapy and a wheelchair. And while Ann knew nothing about MS, She did know that there had to be a better way to cope than with drug therapy as a cure for multiple sclerosis. Finally, through major changes in her diet and lifestyle, She triumphed and got her health under control. Ann has been symptom-free from multiple sclerosis for 23 years.

Ann was a sugar addict earlier in her life and took at least 60 courses of antibiotics which a good recipe to develop candida overgrowth and autoimmune disease. Ann learned alot the human body and how important the microbiome (gut ecology).  Ann later learned that candida overgrowth can come back more virulently if not kept in check. So several years later, when her stress levels were high and sugar and carbs crept back into her diet, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Ann’s road to recovery started with getting on a anti-candida diet, she eliminated dairy ,sugar, alcohol, gluten and corn. Ann took an anti-fungal drug for 2 years and then switched to a herbal formula. She relied heavily on the book by Judy Graham Multiple Sclerosis which gave her guidance about the right supplementation. Ann removed 15 silver amalgam fillings. Without any pain medication to ensure there was no immune reaction. Ann also worked on her emotional health.

Candida which is comprised of yeast and fungus can be found both inside and outside the body naturally, and it’s harmless until it starts to multiply. Several factors can cause candida to overgrow including:


· Antibiotics

· Steroids

· Birth control pills

· Hormone replacement therapy

· Chemotherapy/radiation

· Heavy metals

· Stress

· Alcohol


Among the causes of candida overgrowth, sugar is the biggest offender and will continue to feed yeast and fungus throughout your lifetime.


Ann’s Plan to Heal


You need to remove inflammation and infection from the body. What seems like an insurmountable task can be done slowly and methodically. Keep in mind that baby steps can lead to victory!

· Maintain an anti-candida diet (Avoid dairy, sugar, alcohol, gluten and corn)

· Take an herbal anti-fungal supplement.

· Supplement with turmeric to help reduce inflammation and boost your immunity. Try Daily Turmeric Tonic which contains both antioxidants and adaptogens which can help reduce inflammation and fight pain.

· Add in collagen peptides to help replenish and repair the body. Collagen peptides also help to reduce stiffness and pain associated with multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune conditions. I’ve even seen collagen help with the brain fog that comes with MS.

· Participate in stress management techniques – Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), meditation, journaling or counseling.

· Ensure you are getting quality sleep.

· Exercise! Whether it’s yoga, walking or isometrics, be active!

· Believe in yourself!


Conclusion

Healing an autoimmune condition, such as multiple sclerosis, does not happen overnight. There is no quick cure to multiple sclerosis or any chronic health condition. There is no magic drug, herb or food that will help you get better. It requires making lifestyle changes and sticking with them. But it is completely possible to cure multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune conditions by treating the root causes. Be sure to work with an expert naturopath or functional medicine doctor who can guide you on your journey.  The most important factor is to believe you can heal your body, and then following it up with a program that reduces inflammation and infection.
