Title : The holistic approach to multiple sclerosis


Having worked for many years treating people with this debilitating disease, one can just wonder at the amount of mental and physical trauma they suffer. Since Multiple sclerosis is under the label of autoimmune related diseases and there are over 100 of them under that category, it becomes quite challenging to treat these conditions. Sunita’s drive into understanding this disease and using ‘Natures Pharmacy’, pure organic essential oils to support the immunity has shown her that they do indeed work as a complimentary therapy to support patients with this condition. Some of her case studies have profound evidence that Aromatherapy together with other Holistic approaches help the person in need, especially when it is associated with deep pain. In this presentation Sunita will share those case studies and explain how essential oils target our cells and tissues and support our Immune system. There are a lot of papers written on Multiple sclerosis saying that it is caused by the immune system attacking the nervous system, and some theories mention that Multiple sclerosis is not an autoimmune disease but a metabolic neurodegenerative disorder. Whatever the theories are, taking a holistic approach to support someone suffering with this disharmony, is the best way forward.
