A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis
I had a question the other day about acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, or ADE.
ADE is inflammation of your brain and spinal cord caused by damage to your myelin sheath – the fatty insulator of your brain’s nerve fibers.
Both viral and bacterial infection can cause ADE.
It can also be a complication of inoculation or vaccination.
The onset of ADE is usually sudden.
Symptoms vary from person to person and include headaches, delirium, lethargy, coma, seizures, stiff neck, fever, ataxia, optic neuritis, transverse myelitis, vomiting, and weight loss.
In some cases, a limb or an entire side of your body can become paralyzed.
ADE strikes children more often than adults.
To deal with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis it’s beneficial to:
*Drink lots of purified water daily to hydrate and flush toxins.
*Treatment typically includes corticosteroid medications plus symptom-relieving and supportive measures.
*The prognosis for people with ADE varies. Some people have a complete or nearly complete recovery, while others continue to suffer residual symptoms. In severe cases, the disorder can be fatal. If diagnosed early and treated promptly, however, the prognosis is usually good.
*Include in your diet all fruits and vegetables, plus breads, cereals, and crackers containing only rice and oats.
*Include cold-water fish like tuna (limit to 1 serving per week), salmon, and herring in your diet.
*Follow a high-protein diet. Proteins are needed to supply your body with amino acids.
*Be sure your child is getting his or her carbohydrates from foods containing complex carbohydrates and cut down on simple carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates can be found in fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, beans, and natural whole grains.
*Limit dairy products if you notice behavioral changes after they’re consumed. Make sure growing children get calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D from other sources like soymilk or supplements.
*Remove from your diet all forms of refined sugar and any products containing it. Also eliminate junk food and all foods containing artificial colors, flavorings, monosodium glutamate (MSG), yeast, or preservatives; processed and manufactured foods; and foods containing salicylates. Certain foods naturally contain salicylates. These include almonds, apples, apricots, all berries, cherries, cucumbers, currants, oranges, peaches, peppers, plums, prunes, and tomatoes.
*Don’t consume any of the following: apple cider vinegar, bacon, butter, candy, catsup, chocolate, colored cheeses, chili sauce, corn, ham, hot dogs, luncheon meat, margarine, meat loaf, milk, mustard, pork, salami, salt, sausage, soy sauce, tea, and wheat.
*Don’t use antacid tablets, cough drops, perfume, throat lozenges, or commercial toothpaste. Use a natural toothpaste from a health food store.
*Avoid carbonated beverages.
*Limit exposure to television, video and electronic games, and loud music.
