Advanced MS Protocol

I spent years as a neurologist treating patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, and over time became frustrated by the trajectory of the traditional medical approach. If you have multiple sclerosis you know that you have been labeled with a disabling disease for which you are told the cause is unknown, there is no cure, there is no way to reverse its course, and that you must take disease-controlling medication for the rest of your life. Without the medicine, you will likely deteriorate. Conventional medicine removes hope, and replaces it with a life sentence that ties you to a pharmacological solution. I knew the toolbox had to be bigger. While I recognized the value of the medication, I also knew there were things I could do to help my patients address the root cause of their disease. This is when I decided to start my own private Springfield neurology and functional medicine clinic, and develop The Brain Tune Up!, a neurology-based functional medicine protocol that allows my patients to identify the root causes of their MS. Put simply, it works. With the help of my Brain Tune Up team I find I can drastically improve the trajectory of your multiple sclerosis.

Brain Tune Up! MS Program Benefits

While results may vary from patient to patient, the majority of my previous Brain Tune Up! MS Intensive patients enjoyed the following benefits as a result of my advanced Springfield Multiple Sclerosis treatment protocol. 

  • Improved Vision
  • Reduced Tingling
  • Less Numbness
  • Pain Reduction
  • Fewer Muscle Spasms
  • More Energy
  • Better Balance
  • Sharper Memory

Schedule Free

Your first step is to schedule a free 15-minute telephone consultation with Callie Maggard, Brain Tune Up! Program Coordinator. Please select the time you can be reached by telephone and complete the form afterwards. These steps are critical! Because of the high volume of interest, we are unable to answer your calls or questions until you have scheduled through this process and completed the intake form.

Program Coordinator: Callie Maggard“Thank you for your interest in our program. I look forward to speaking with you about your health conditions and how our program could potentially help change the trajectory of your health.”

My program accepts out-of-state patients. Brain Tune Up! is a 5-8 month program. In order to be accepted into my program my team and I have to see you for the two-day initial neurological evaluation in-person, but we then can customize the rest of the program in a virtual setting for patients who are traveling from far distances. This will be explained when you schedule a telephone consultation.

Diagnosis of MS
Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis

Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis

Traditionally, the diagnosis of MS is made by MRI, spinal fluid examination, and possibly evoked potential testing. Once the diagnosis is established the conventional treatment focuses on “Disease-Modifying Therapy”. These treatments target the immune system to reduce the frequency of relapses, slow disability progression, and stabilize or improve the changes seen on MRI. In addition, the symptoms of MS such as pain, fatigue, bladder incontinence, or spasticity may also be treated with medication and therapy.

Environmental Factors
Environmental Factors Triggering MS


Multiple sclerosis involves an immune-mediated process in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Within the CNS, the immune system attacks myelin – the fatty substance that surrounds and insulates the nerve fibers – as well as the nerve fibers themselves. The damaged myelin forms scar tissue (sclerosis), which gives the disease its name. When any part of the myelin sheath or nerve fiber is damaged or destroyed, nerve impulses traveling to and from the brain and spinal cord are distorted or interrupted, producing a wide variety of symptoms. The disease is thought to be triggered in a genetically susceptible individual by a combination of one or more environmental factors.

Root Causes
Root Causes of MS

Root Causes of Multiple Sclerosis

Functional medicine, by contrast, evaluates the root causes of chronic illness such as MS. A variety of imbalances have been implicated as triggers for multiple sclerosis. These include exposure to the Epsilon toxin produced by the bacteria Clostridum perfringens, accumulation of metals such as copper, cadmium, lead, and iron, and gradual depletion of magnesium, selenium, vitamins B2, B6, D, and essential fatty acids. Alterations in the gut microbiome have emerged more recently as an important factor. Abnormal levels of estrogen and testosterone, infection with the Epstein barr virus and Chlamydia pneuminiae all are potential contributors to the risk of multiple sclerosis. Because functional medicine is personalized medicine understanding why it is the individual patient developed multiple sclerosis begins with an examination of the Functional Medicine Timeline, The Functional Medicine Matrix, and the Therapeutic Lifestyle Factors (Sleep & Relaxation, Movement & Exercise, Nutrition, Stress, and Relationships). Functional Medicine Matrix, based on a scientific framework known as “systems biology,” allows the practitioner to evaluate imbalances at the cellular level. This helps sort out why the disease has occurred in the first place. By understanding each of these imbalances the person with MS is empowered to make changes to correct them. Each part of the Matrix is called a “node,” and there are 7 nodes on the Functional Medicine Matrix.
