How do natural therapies cure multiple sclerosis?

ANSWER

Natural therapies won’t cure your disease, but evidence suggests that some of them may help when you use them along with your regular treatment. For others, the science isn’t as clear. When you’re deciding if you want to try something new, it’s important to know what might help you and what could be harmful.

Your best bet is to stick with your treatment plan and to talk with your doctor before you start any new therapy. Together you can decide what will help you feel your best.
