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 […]
I just started adding Collagen to my smoothies as my protein source in the past 6 months. Little did I know all of the benefits of it. I knew it was good for me but had know idea just how much. We’ve all heard that collagen is good for skin and strong nails but it […]
I have it. I use it. I benefit from it. CBD oil or Cannabidoid oil is a product made from the HEMP plant better known as marijuana. It’s gained popularity in the medical marijuana field. It is very helpful for many ailments and alleviates many unpleasant symptoms of which I will run through them all […]
As you’ve read in my previous posts, I switched from a low fat, primarily vegan diet to a high good fat and grass fed meat diet since last summer. Well….here I am back to tell you it did not agree with my Multiple Sclerosis. The Swank Diet for Multiple Sclerosis is a very low saturated […]
In the school of “hard knocks” I am am becoming an honor student…so to speak. My Multiple Sclerosis is progressing faster now than it ever has. But…I will not let it bring me down. I must continue being grateful and live in a happy place despite adversity. Believe it or not….and you may have heard […]
