Advanced MS Protocol

The traditional medical approach to MS leaves little room for hope or autonomy. The trajectory of the conventional method has many limitations and is frustrating for both practitioners and patients. Being diagnosed with a progressive disease that has no known cause and no cure is a disheartening experience. And the thought of being dependent on medication for the rest of your life to control your deterioration isn’t a great way to live. As a neurologist serving Ozark who has treated many patients with MS, Dr. Ken Sharlin realized there must be a better way.

While we believe that certain medications do have their value in MS treatment, our Ozark clinic’s approach includes many other facets. At our neurology clinic, we get to the root cause of the condition, allowing our patients to fully understand their disease and giving them the tools they need to thrive. We’ve created the Brain Tune Up! Protocol, which is a functional medicine program offered in the Ozark area, incorporating everything from nutrition and movement to supplements and clinical therapies. With this innovative protocol, you can dramatically improve the trajectory of your MS and feel in control of your well-being once again. If you have been diagnosed with MS and you live in the area, reach out to Sharlin Health and Neurology now to schedule your free 15-minute telephone consultation.

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.
