Alternative Therapies

What About Alternative Therapies?


Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in multiple sclerosis (MS) can include a wide variety of treatments, and may include:
  • special diets
  • vitamin supplements
  • use of cannabinoids or medical marijuana
  • meditation
  • magnetic therapy
  • herbal treatments
  • exercise
  • acupuncture.

Some MS patients may use these techniques to complement their traditional prescription medicine.

The American Academy of Neurology has released a guideline on the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in MS which provides evidence-based recommendations. If you are interested in CAM, be sure to discuss these options with your doctor to weigh the available evidence.
