The MS Solution is a medical detective story that catalogs Kathy Simpsons path from her diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and resulting disability to a return to complete health and resolution of all symptoms. The discovery that her symptoms were caused by the loss of key hormones (such as thyroid, adrenal and ovarian) and could all be resolved by replacing them makes an intriguing story. Her years of endocrine research allowed her to crack the mystery of multiple sclerosis and make the connections that are not yet being made by the medical community at large between MS, hormones and how to restore health. The incredible success that Kathy personally experienced with this therapy as well as the dramatic turnaround of many other patients, both at the hormone center she founded and in collaboration with doctors specializing in this field, convinced her to write The MS Solution. She spells out the science behind her approach along with the testing and treatment protocols she used to resolve her symptoms in easy-to-understand language that doctors and patients alike can understand. Specific details about each endocrine function and hormone are provided with current research and clinical study data that support her findings. This book can be used as road map to evaluate and treat any hormone deficiencies that may be causing MS symptoms. Kathryn Simpsons book is a must-read for anyone with MS, as well as family members and physicians of patients with MS and other neurodegenerative diseases, says Thierry Hertoghe, M.D., President of the International Hormone Society. The merits of this book are immense it is, to my knowledge, the first book where the major link between neurodegenerative disease and hormone deficiencies and imbalances has been presented. It is essential for a simple reason: It focuses on what actually are, in my experience, the most efficient tools to treat neurodegenerative diseases such as MS hormone therapies for the endocrine deficiencies that are often associated with these diseases.
