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.

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.  

I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble.

I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a day for th…

L 300

Good Monday!

Big do-in's last week in my MS World.

After wearing myself out with my petty pink leg, I finally got brave and called Hanger Clinic to inquire about the L300 Walk Aid.

Several years go I was fitted for an older version but when insurance did not recognize the device as a necessary medical item, my  hopes were dashed and I gave up.

On a whim I renewed my interest to discover a newer model called the L300. Where the original device required a shoe insert AND a leg cuff, the L300 is just a cuff. So, of course I figured this would be even MORE expensive. But, I made an aoppointment any way.

The certificated orthopedist clinic owner encouraged me to contact my insurance to inquire again. Guess what? With the medical code he gave me as well as a letter of authorization, insurance will pay 80%! It is still a bit pricey but I think I can wing this!

I just hope this is the route for me. With the assistance of Walk Aid, I can wear regular shoes or even go bare foot!  I know it will r…
