Is it possible to love yourself healthy?
Being diagnosed with MS, or multiple sclerosis, one of the scariest things that ever happened to me. If you have just been diagnosed, you probably have a lot of questions, doubts and anxieties. Some of these concerns have answers and some do not.
You see, multiple sclerosis is not a disease that has many answers. To modern medicine, this progressive ailment can only be managed- and not very successfully. Immediately after your diagnosis, you are told that there is no cure and that this is something that you have to face alone and need to manage for the rest of your life.
The prognosis does not look good for the average person that is diagnosed. Treatments are limited and invasive, and times ahead will be challenging. At least, this is what I was told when I was first diagnosed back in the ’90s.
For better or worse, I was also a doctor. Being a doctor, I was able to experience that unique moment in medicine when every part of me rejected my prognosis, and I remained in denial for a number of years. I could not accept that I was doomed to exist with this disease for the rest of my life. I had to take action! Eventually, I started to seek answers to improve the gloomy outcome of my prognosis. This set me on a journey that helped me change my disease process and my life. I found real ways to deal with multiple sclerosis and I began to understand just how flawed current treatment of this disease is for many in the Western world.
Day 1 is a hard day to get through, but I have news for you. What your doctor has told you is not the beginning and the end of your options. This book will walk you through all of the excellent research and personal insight that helped and continues to help me reduce and manage my MS successfully.
