Specific Lab Tests to Assess Multiple Sclerosis


Updated September 13, 2013

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease involving the central nervous system (CNS) - the nerves that comprise the brain and spinal cord. There is a destruction of the myelin sheath, which covers nerve fibers. There is also a destruction of axons, which carry electrical impulses away from the nerve cell.

The following is a list of alternative medicine lab tests used to evaluate multiple sclerosis:

1. Essential Fatty Acids Analysis

2. Food and Environmental Allergy Testing

3. Oxidative Stress

4. Amino Acids Analysis

5. Hormone profile -- in women, especially estrogen, progesterone. In both men and women, adrenal profile.

6. Toxic Metal Hair Analysis
