Tingling and numbness in your joints, chronic pain and spasms, and fatigue and weakness are not just indicators of chronic tiredness; they are often the early symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS). More than 2.1 million people are affected by the disease worldwide, although that number is thought to be even greater because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not require physicians in the U.S. to report new cases of MS, says the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Relapsing-remitting MS — the experience of relapses or episodes of deteriorating neurological function — is the most common form of MS seen in the initial diagnosis of patients. While the majority of cases of MS do not leave patients severely disabled, Dr. Terry Wahls, assistant chief of staff at the Iowa Veterans Affairs Medical Center, MS-stricken, saw herself continue to become severely incapacitated three years after her initial diagnosis in 2000. "I was afraid I was going to become bedridden," she said at the TEDXIowaCity event in November 2011, referring to what she once thought was irreversible MS.
Wahls took the natural healing power of food to reverse her irreversible MS within a year, going from riding a tilt-recline wheelchair to competing in an 18-mile bicycle tour with her own version of the paleo diet without prescription drugs.
