2007 | 143 Pages | ISBN: 0275994686 | PDF | 2 MB

This is a very helpful-and very human- discussion of MS and the havoc it can introduce into one's life. As a first-hand book, written by someone who has traveled down that road, it can be enormously valuable to those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.There are many books out there that help one deal with this subject. There are books on Nutrition, Diet, Exercise, Ayurvedic Medicine, Yoga, Herbals, wholistics, etc. Most often, these are written by health care workers, rather than by patients themselves. Do a quick search on Amazon & you'll come up with a lot of titles. Where to start? This book is a helpful discussion of the traditional medical approaches to MS. It has clearly been documented that people taking the A,B,C, R of traditional MS therapy have positively impacted their illness. (Avonex, Beta Seron, Copaxone, Rebif). However, as MS does not behave uniformly in everyone, a multi-disciplinary approach encompassing both traditional and alternative will hopefully be of benefit. Number One- Do No Harm!The author of this book, Dr. Kym Orsetti Furney MD, offers a traditional and valuable perspective on this subject. Dr. Furney has a very pleasant and readable writing style.This book is possibly most helpful to those newly diagnosed -once they are ready to read about MS.Other helpful ways to approach this chronic new lifestyle can be through some other very good avenues:Books: A great place to start: *Symptom Management in Multiple Sclerosis (Paperback)~ Randall T.
