While treatment for MS with medications is important, we also realize that there are many other things that help people with MS feel better such as diet and exercise. Many patients also report that alternative therapies are helpful in maximizing their quality of life. These include yoga, massage, tai chi, healing touch, and many more.
To help you understand the pros and cons to each of these and give you access to credible information and resources, we are starting a health and wellness center on the website.
Each month we will highlight a different health and wellness topic for your to consider on your MS HealthCare Journey. Please provide feedback as we go so that we know what you need and what is helpful.
This month we will be highlighting yoga. We have interviewed Mindy Eisenberg who has been teaching yoga for people with MS for 14 years and she has written a book entitled Adaptive Yoga Moves Any Body for people with MS (please note this book will not be available until fall).
So stay tuned for the first HealthCare Journey Health And Wellness podcast and information about yoga and get moving!
