ABSTRACT
This article offers information on herbs that may worsen the underlying process of multiple sclerosis (MS) or worsen MS symptoms. Therapies for MS should decrease or calm down the immune system--not stimulate it. Many different herbs activate components of the immune system, including T-cells and macrophages, the very cells that are known to be excessively active in MS. Two common MS symptoms to keep in mind when considering herbal therapy are fatigue and bladder difficulties.
