Your help is needed — help others with MS live to the fullest January 24, 2009Posted by Rebecca Hoover in Uncategorized.
Whether you have had multiple sclerosis for only a short period of time or for a longer period of time, your help is needed. Please help spread the word to others with MS — others need to know that lifestyle makes a difference. Please take the time to study what those with MS can do to be as healthy and happy as possible, and then please share information on the importance of following a healthy diet such as the Swank MS Diet, taking needed supplements to prevent deficiencies, getting enough sleep and rest, and following the other steps in the plan.
You can help others and make a real difference.
There are four ways of spreading the word that are important. First, please talk to others you know who have MS. Share information with them about this web site and about the web sites linked to this site such as the Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis site by Dr. George Jelinek. Please let others who have MS know you care and are committed to helping others with MS feel as well as possible. Let others know about the excellent books by Dr. Roy Swank and Dr. George Jelinek.
Second, please tell your own story. Once you have followed a diet such as the Swank MS Diet or Jelinek’s recommendations, please write down how you felt before starting the diet and how the diet seemed to help you. Also, please share your experience with basic health promoting steps such as exercise. Others need to hear that these basic, simple, low-cost steps make the world of difference and are even miraculously effective. For example, in my own case, at age 60, if I did not eat a healthy diet, take a few needed supplements to prevent nutritional deficiencies, sleep enough, exercise, etc., it is doubtful that I would appear to be in glowing good health. Others with MS enjoy hearing my story because it gives them hope that these simple things make all of the difference in the world. When you are successful, others need to hear of your success too.
Third, please send me your story and I will include it on my web site. And, don’t worry, your story need not be written perfectly. I can edit it for you and make you look brilliant.
Fourth, please consider starting your own yahoo group at groups.yahoo.com so that you and others with MS can share your efforts to live with MS in the healthiest possible way. Facebook is another great way to start or participate in such a group. A group of five to 20 members is ideal for sharing support and developing close friendships. Also, a group such as this can help you find answers to questions and stay motivated.
By changing your life style and by encouraging others to do the same, you can help change the world and make the world a better place — for yourself and others. When you take good care of yourself, you will feel better, you will make life easier for your friends and family, and you will even help dramatically reduce the cost of health care. When you encourage others to take care of themselves using the steps outlined here, the benefits can start to spread and grow.
I have to mention that this taking care of yourself yields great results for you too. Others will notice how great you look and you will find yourself getting all sorts of compliments and feeling attractive! Viva la beauty and handsomeness!
Your help is needed.
