It is proven that coffee has one more health benefit and it is linked to multiple sclerosis. This study was presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 67th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. It shows that a few cups of coffee a day could reduce risk of getting multiple sclerosis, even though only slightly.
Studies in the past have already shown that coffee helps in protecting against diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, and now, multiple sclerosis is added to the list.
These researches were done on two separate population-based-case-control studies. The first one was done in Sweden and it involved 1,159 people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and 2,807 without it. The second study involved 1,159 individuals with multiple sclerosis and 1,172 healthy controls, and was done in the US.
Coffee consumption was followed 1 and 5 years prior to onset of symptoms with both people in good health and those suffering from multiple sclerosis.
In order for coffee to have any results, there needs to be at least about four cups drank a day, for impact to be visible. Those who didn’t drink coffee one year prior to symptom onset were 1.5 times more likely to develop multiple sclerosis, compared to those who drank six or more cups of coffee every day. This benefit most likely comes from the main ingredient of this beverage, which is caffeine.
Next step for this study is finding out how and if coffee affects a long-term disease and relapse symptoms for those with multiple sclerosis.
This research was supported by The Swedish Medical Research Council, the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare, the US National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the National Institute of Environmental and Health Sciences and the National Institute on Aging.

For me, since I got back after my 2 weeks of having my treatment, within 2 days of being home speaking to friends and family around the world, they all noticed the difference in my speaking, cognitively and I was able to listen and integrate with conversations with my family at home.
A wonderful experience, a wonderful care are these very caring people, yes.continue
Everything is done naturally and pleasantly here. Actually I do not feel sick, it is the most important thing – during these 12 days I haven’t felt sick.
I didn’t have the impression that I was treated like a patient. I was treated like a normal person, it is true I take medicines, receive infusions and still have some pain, but I never felt like I was in the hospital.continue
