About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an auto-immune chronic condition that involves the immune system which recognises as “foreign” and attacks one’s own nerves’ layer also known as myelin and this process causes inflammation and neurodegeneration.


Hereby, I described a serious and largely disputed disease with few and very aseptic words and there are reasons for doing so.
First of all, as per those of you familiar with MS, it is really tiring to read the description all over again – even more exhausting to write about it!

Second of all, I struggle to agree with the scientific world’s description. I found it extremely shallow and generalised, confining every affected patient in the same basket. Indeed, one of the first things I’ve been told was that although the disease was relapsing-remitting , it would’ve become secondary progressive within 10 years, leading to serious damages and impairments in my body. And here I am: nearly 22 years later, never felt better.


Moreover, I developed my own opinions

and theories throughout these years, also thanks to two degrees in Pharmaceutical Sciences, about what is the cause of MS.

It is widely accepted that the primary cause of the disease is still unknown but there could be several triggering factors such as, exhaustion and emotional stress.

Only fairly recently, a new factor has been added to the long and ineffective list of triggering “features”, namely, a virus infection. I strongly believe that among all the vaccines a child is administered, there are some which can disrupt the blood-brain barrier (such as Epstein-Barr virus) and reside in nerve tissue causing the immune system to react and attack in-situ, consequently causing the demyelination. Unfortunately, Epstein-Barr virus isn’t the only pathogen that can enter and survive in the brain but also Borrelia and some streptococci, just to mention some of them.


Hereby, there is not intention to say that all children that have been administered vaccines have developed or will experience MS later in their lives but I do believe that this can be a more plausible explanation of the causes of the disease.

This is, of course, my own personal opinion and belief.
