How can chamomile help people with multiple sclerosis (MS)?

Chamomile can ease tension and relax muscles by reducing inflammation. Because of these relaxing tendencies, many people with multiple sclerosis (MS) choose to drink it in a tea. This can prove to be especially effective at night if physical pain prevents you from getting a full night’s sleep. Its sweet taste also makes for a delicious cake or glaze which can be paired with fresh fruit for a refreshing summertime snack.

Check with your doctor before you make any changes to your diet, and remember to stop eating something if it makes you feel ill.
