I haven’t written about my MS for some time now but I think today is a good time to come clean about it. I was diagnosed in March of 2008. I have been doing my best at keeping things under control with diet, exercise, physiotherapy, no alcohol since 2009, regular sleep pattern and general clean […]
This topic is not something I paid too much attention to over the years. I just assumed that because I was eating healthy I was looking after my bone health. Did I get a big surprise. Not being able to walk and put too much weight load on my bones over the past 12 years […]
Are you hydrated enough? It’s amazing how many body functions are affected by not drinking enough water on a daily basis. I am guilty of not drinking enough water. I’ve been told by health and wellness professionals that I need to drink more water. I frequently shy away from drinking too much liquid throughout the […]
It has been a dozen years since my MS diagnosis. Where did that time go…I ask. I have done lots of research and have changed a good many things in my lifestyle, all with health in mind. These past 12 years have brought a lot of unplanned physical changes to me which affects my sweetie […]
It’s hard to admit this but I am no longer a “diehard vegan”. I’ve been gradually making my way back to animal protein. For the past 4 months I have been following the Paleo Diet again. I tried it back in 2012 for a short time but did not like it, perhaps I was not […]
I have been consuming organic liquid turmeric daily for 20 years now. I swear that the reason I don’t have any Multiple Sclerosis related aches and pains is my daily dose of turmeric. Many of my fellow MS acquaintances, frequently reflect on their unfortunate MS related aches and pains. Why don’t I have pain? I […]
I am on the Paleo diet now to support my body and the recent stem cell treatment I had in Panama. I eat healthy, organic, unprocessed, whole fruits and vegetables, and grass-fed organic protein. I’ve been consuming organic health foods for a very long time. One treat outside of the “fruit and veggie” regime, is […]
If there is one thing I have strengthened in myself through dealing with a life changing illness, that is “COMPASSION”. Compassion, by definition is “sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings and misfortunes of others.” Since I have become handicapped from my MS, my eyes have been opened to the day to day struggles of […]
I’ve touched on this topic in a previous post. This new and exciting, soon to be legal in Canada, non-pharmaceutical approach to treating Multiple Sclerosis is interesting to me. I’m learning about Marijuana strains and how they affect my disease and other diseases. There is a ton of info online and in the news about […]
Many people ask me to explain what Multiple Sclerosis is and how it affects me. I usually give them a quick answer that Multiple Sclerosis is a complex disease where the immune system attacks the central nervous system. That is MS in a “nutshell”. I will try to expand on this answer to give you […]
