Should I take alternative treatment claims for multiple sclerosis at face value?

ANSWER

Don’t take any claim at face value. Contact reliable organizations and discuss alternative therapies. Talk to others in a support group, your family, and your health care team. Although they may not always be supportive, they can help you make an educated decision.
