Well, it turns out that since Multiple Sclerosis (MS) symptoms are greatly reduced with Whole Body CryoTherapy (WBCT). This is because WBCT disrupts the inflammation process so the pain is reduced temporarily as the body resets itself. Once temporarily reset MS appears in regression. Some recommend a two-week treatment (twice a day, 3-hour intervals) every 6-months to try to prevent the onset of a recurrence of hard-hitting debilitating issues from MS.
Since Whole Body CryoTherapy disrupts the inflammation process it therefore makes sense for a short-term reliever of symptoms, resetting the body. In fact, one research study showed a result in “positive antioxidant effects of WBCT as a short-term help in treatment for patients suffering from MS.”
Modern medicine still doesn’t know all it needs to determine what causes MS or how to cure it, but it appears that Whole Body CryoTherapy might serve as a nice stop gap for those who suffer from MS, perhaps temporarily limiting its effect on their lifestyle due to symptom flare-ups or relapses in condition. It’s great to know the value of WBCT for those afflicted with MS.
Another interesting link is how CryoTherapy induces an endorphin rush as endorphins are a chemical that is good for our central nervous system and brain, which are also places that MS causes our bodies to attack. There is more to this story, and we hope research finds out how it is all connected. In the meanwhile if you have MS, you might wish to see how Whole Body CryoTherapy can assist you in dealing with the symptoms, relapses and pain associated with it.
There is one research paper on this I’d like to point you to; “Effects of the whole-body cryotherapy on a total antioxidative status and activities of some antioxidative enzymes in blood of patients with multiple sclerosis-preliminary study,” by E. Miller, M. Mrowicka, K. Malinowska, K. Zolynski and J. Kedziora. See: Journal of Medical Investment 2010 Feb;57(1-2):168-73.
When we survey various Whole Body CryoTherapy establishments we learn that the MS community is expanding its interest and we are seeing more folks who are afflicted with MS showing up for regular Whole Body CyroTherapy sessions. Apparently the word is out, and folks are finding relief with Cryo Therapy. This is great news due to the debilitating conditions that MS causes during flare ups or in late stages.
Although this one study isn’t enough to guarantee relief, we see lots of activity here, and there must be a reason for it, as Cryo Therapy isn’t free, and it’s cold and if it didn’t work, why would you want to subject yourself to it? Think on this.
