Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis: An Evidence-Based Guide to Recovery

Synopsis

A research-based approach to treating the devastating neurological condition multiple sclerosis, based on a combination of drug treatment and lifestyle modifications Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a serious, progressively disabling condition for which current medical treatment is not particularly effective and has many side effects, however, this guide provides a genuine alternative. Through an exhaustive, evidence-based analysis of medical research, the study concludes that MS is a disease largely determined by lifestyle factors. Showing that people with MS who modify their diet, their exercise habits, and other aspects of their lifestyle can stabilize the illness and potentially recover, these recommendations will change the lives of thousands of people with MS and support their loved ones.

Excerpt

Professor George Jelinek brings to this work an extraordinary and ideal combination. As a Professor of Emergency Medicine and editor of a medical journal, he has a long and very solid grounding in medical science. But then he became affected by MS. A patient. A whole new view. A whole new experience. A whole new imperative.

George responded to this imperative by scouring the medical literature, the Internet and the popular press. He was aided in his search by relatives, colleagues and other people dealing with MS.

The result of George’s search is exquisite. In my opinion he has produced what can fairly be described as a definitive work on MS, a summation of the current understanding of the causes, effects and treatment options for MS. And all of this presented in a way that will be satisfying to anyone whose life is directly touched by MS, as well as a professional audience.

George’s previous book, Taking Control of Multiple Sclerosis, rapidly established its importance. It changed the way medicine is being practised. It positively transformed the experiences of people dealing with the potentially devastating disease MS. Now this new book completely updates our knowledge and is available to an even wider audience.

It is wonderful to be able to assert these benefits. Medical history will look back on this book and give it a major place in the advancement of the treatment and management of MS.
