Multiple Sclerosis

Alternative Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis 

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease involving the central nervous system where the coating of the nerve cells, called myelin, is damaged. This damage to the myelin creates communication issues between the brain and the body by disruption of signals. MS is the most common neurological condition among young adults, affecting approximately 400,000 in the United States and approximately 2.5 million worldwide. It is more common in women. Symptoms can come and go, known as relapsing-remitting MS, which is the most prevalent type of MS. While there is no cure, there are treatments that can help with symptoms, relapses and slowing of the progression of the disease. 

Common Characteristics & Symptoms of MS 

  • Muscle weakness 
  • Tingling/burning sensations 
  • Numbness 
  • Chronic pain 
  • Balance and coordination problems 
  • Fatigue 
  • Vision problems 
  • Bladder control issues 
  • Depression 
  • Trouble thinking clearly 
  • Inflammation 
  • Hypoxia 

Our Approach to Multiple Sclerosis

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy decreases inflammation, oxygenates the entire body, stimulates the growth of new healthy blood vessels, stimulates collagen growth and releases stem cells, up to 800% more after twenty sessions. Traditional treatment for MS involves steroids, immunosuppressants, plasmapheresis for attacks, and medications to slow the progression. Research has shown that oxygen is critical for repair of the barrier and tissue within the central nervous system. HBOT has been shown to improve symptoms of MS such as fatigue, concerns with speech, balance and mobility, bladder issues and difficulty with activities of daily living. Research suggests that patients who receive regular maintenance treatments can maintain initial improvements and help prevent long-term deterioration. 

QEEG & Neurofeedback Therapy (NFB)

A Quantitative EEG shows us electrical activity of the brain.  We will be able to see if inflammation is present, if there are any areas of hyper- or hypoactivity, and any areas of disconnect.  Using this information, we can focus on the area(s) of the brain most affected and bring those areas back into balance using Neurofeedback Therapy.  Research has shown that Neurofeedback Therapy improves depression, even depression that has been resistant to medication, and decreases anxiety. 

Naturopathic Services

Our Naturopathic Doctor offers nutritional counseling and herbal and supplement options based on blood work and symptom profile. She also offers specialty testing that includes MaxGen nutritional genetics testing as well as neurotransmitter testing.   She has extensive experience in Family Medicine and Functional Medicine. Her goal is to achieve optimal health and wellness by getting to the root cause of the symptoms. 

Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine sees the patient as a physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual being. Functional and Integrative Medicine combines Western Medicine, complementary medicine, and non-pharmacologic treatments. Dr. Maduro’s philosophy is that we are fundamentally designed to heal. In Functional Medicine, we work with cognitive decline, biometrics, cardiac metabolism, environmental health, and the gastrointestinal tract. These are the main causes of health decline in western society due to poor nutrition, stress related functions, hormonal imbalances, and immunological disbalances.
