Multiple Sclerosis also called “MS” affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other effectively. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease in which the fatty myelin sheaths around the axons of the brain and spinal cord are damaged, leading to demyelination and scarring as well as a broad spectrum of signs and symptoms. Disease onset usually occurs in young adults, and it is more common in women.

Epilepsy is a group of long term neurological disorders characterized by epileptic seizures. Seizures are episodes that vary from brief undetectable to long periods of visual shaking. Seizures that are due to epilepsy occur for no immediate cause, but seizures that occur around a specific cause are not necessarily epilepsy. In most cases that cause is unknown; however, some are the result of brain trauma, stoke, brain cancer, and misuse of drug and alcohol.
Parkinson’s Disease Treatments
Parkinson’s Disease is diagnosed in more than 200,000 Americans each year and involves the malfunction and death of vital nerve cells in the brain, called neurons. The dying neurons can produce dopamine, the chemical that send messages to the part of the brain that controls movement and coordination.
