Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease which causes demyelination of the brain cells and spinal cord nerve cells. During the diseased conditions, the axon doesn’t perform its function. Myelin acts like insulation electrical wires since the nerves are affected by loss of myelin and the patient with multiple sclerosis will lack the ability of axons to conduct impulses. The multiple sclerosis is considered as autoimmune disorder, the exact cause hasn’t yet been found. Many theories regarding the reason that people develop MS range from vitamin C deficiency to a viral infection. Consuming increased salt content food is being looked at as possible cause of MS. This review focuses on the existing Drug- Dimethylfumarate and Fingolimod and the possibilities of Tamil medicines for its effective cure of MS. It is found that for curing relapsing and remitting Dimethylfumarate and fingolimod is used along with natural medicines (Brahmi leaves, ginger, Bermuda grass) is used to fight against the existing symptoms of MS. In addition to preventing potential complications of being sedentary, such as deconditioning, osteoporosis, obesity or vascular comorbidities, physical exercise can play an important role in managing symptoms in persons with MS and may possibly be neuroprotective.
