Muscular Dystrophy Natural Remedies

Muscular Dystrophy is a muscular disease in which the muscle fibers are weakened, especially of the voluntary muscles. It is a progressive disease where connective tissue and fat will replace the muscles. Symptoms include weak muscles of the limbs as well as difficulty swallowing, and possible eyelid drooping.

Causes are unknown and may affect the heart as it is a muscle. Medical treatment is limited to symptoms such as pain, etc. it is considered incurable. Steroid treatment often times cause osteoporosis.

Natural viewpoint: Muscular Dystrophy needs to be caught at an early stage for effective natural treatment. Stabilization may be possible at later stages. Some people may also experience better results. Be prepared to use natural treatment for several months.

It is critical to stay away from tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea and soda pop at the very minimum. Use the following supplements for extra nutrition:

Magnesium oxide (Use up the point of diarrhea to strengthen the muscles.)
