Diet and MS

I don't know about you, but I certainly feel my best when I eat healthy and stay on an exercise plan that keeps me moving; mainly because this is just plain Common Sense. But it is difficult to keep on course sometimes when it is so much easier to allow the storm clouds to obscure any positive vibes


I've read about the Wahl's  Protocol and skimmed The MS Recovery Diet. Energy Medicine by Donna Eden is also part of my MS library. And I am convinced that Yoga drastically improves my mobility, but that doesn't mean that I am motivated to Ohm way out of bed every morning. 

I am not saying that I totally ignore my health. I just get lazy every now and then.

So when one of my MS Super Heros speaks easy advice, I listen.

I fell in love with fellow  MS Warrior Trevis Gleason a couple of years ago when I picked up his awesomely wonderful book Chef Interrupted.

Check out Gleason's thoughts on intermittent fasting. I like what he says.

Alien feet?

Okay, so after my initial reunion with social media, I naively imagined today to be more productive. But, no...

For someone who doesn't spend much time perusing sites like Pinterest, my interest has suddenly piqued to the point that addiction be a possibility.

Hoping to find someone of like mind, I instead downloaded a slipper pattern I might knit for Christmas presents (oops, there goes the surprise). It looks fairly simple. Let me know if you give it a try.

And, then, I found this really neat yoga flow outlined for me.
Since yoga seems to be the go-to exercise for us Warriors, I decided to share. That way we do not have to invent our own personalized routine. You're welcome.




Then, I discovered an entire page of memes that put MS in perspective to the causal reader-reluctant  on-looker. And because  this figure is essentially in the child pose... well, you get the picture.

Of course, any information on foot drop always attracts my at…

MS and children

FDA Approves First Treatment for Pediatric MS On May 11, 2018, Novartis announced that Gilenya® (fingolimod) was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of children and adolescents, ages 10 through 17, with relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS). This is the first disease-modifying therapy (DMT) to be approved for this form of the disease in this age group. Known as “pediatric MS,” nearly all of those diagnosed have the relapsing form of the disease. Children also experience approximately two-to-three times as many relapses as an individual with adult-onset MS. A clinical trial comparing Gilenya to Avonex® (interferon beta-1a) in children and adolescents found that those treated with Gilenya saw an 82-percent reduction in their annualized relapse rate over a period of up to two years. Please see MSAA's online news article, "FDA Approves Gilenya® for Pediatric MS,"for more information. If links are disabled in this email, please copy a…

Well, the sun is shining at last and it appears that spring is sincerely here and hinting at summer weather.    That means I need a summer project; hopefully one that I can complete. With two young adult books   in various levels of completion, you will surely tells me how ridiculous I am to start yet another writing project. but, inspiration has no rules, right?
           The entire month of March MS Awareness Month led to so many
awesomeavenues of expressions, fueling my need to share and learn with 
fellow MS Warriors. So, let's hare. Let's learn. In Letters to the MonSter, 
my goal is to allow fellow Warriors to vent, scream, rant, and exorcise the  MonSter out of our lives. Let's unite in this project to erase multiple sclerosis from our lives. As Leslie Hillburn stated in the preface to my last tome to this disease, "...the ONLY place you will get any support and understanding in dealing with me (MS) is with Other People wi…
