Lois on the Loose: woman+motorcycle= travel adventures

I read this book recently, the author is Lois Pryce, she's a journalist from Great Britain. She rode from Alaska USA to the tip of Argentina on a motorcycle. Most of it she had a companion of some sort, but a lot of it was traveled ALONE.

Fascinating adventures going through Mexico and Central America, something I would do only in my dreams, especially since I have the MS and meds to worry about (yeah, ...

The MS Recovery Diet

This book, The MS Recovery Diet by Ann D. Sawyer and Judith E. Bachrach, expresses many unconventional ideas.

On the general attitude toward MS by medicine and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society:
Contrast ours to the MS world of allopathic medicine and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS), where progress is defined as the slowing of the progressive downward spiral into disability. By their understanding, after the disease has developed to secondary progressive and symptoms ...

You Gotta Keep on Dancing, Choosing Joy by Tim Hansel

Neuroplasticity

Not long ago I posted some information about a Wired Science episode on PBS that discussed neuroplasticity. I have recently started reading a book on the same subject which discusses some of the same information, as well as Dr. Bach-y-Rita's work, but in more detail. Its title is The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge, M.D. 2007. Although I have just started reading the book, I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested ...

Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes

I am halfway through Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes and think it expresses ideas very important to our general health, as well as MS in particular (tho he does not mention "MS", but speaks of "chronic disease")

Starting in his prologue, he writes: "One consequence of this sub-specialization of modern medicine is the belief, often cited in the lay press, that the causes of obesity and the common chronic diseases are complex and ...

Multiple Sclerosis: The History of a Disease

People new to MS often ask what they can do. I think an understanding of history is important in every situation. To that end, I recommend that everyone start a library concerning MS and I think this book, Multiple Sclerosis: The History of a Disease by T. Jock Murray, OC, MD, is a good first acquisition.

It starts at the beginning with recognition of the disease, lists names and contributions of scientists, and offers a ...

The Inflammation Cure by William Joel Meggs, MD, PhD

Though I have already mentioned this book, The Inflammation Cure by William Joel Meggs, M.D., Ph.D., it bears my recommendation again here. His comment on page 70 urges me to work harder to resolve my sinusitis:

"The whole system is like a giant feedback loop. The nervous system controls inflammation and can even initiate inflammation without activation of the immune system. The immune system, in turn, communicates with the nervous system through its own chemical ...

Black Patent Shoes, Dancing with MS

This is a book written by Eva Marsh, a lady who has recovered from ms through positive thinking and intense physio. She even went back to university and got an engineering degree plus a bachelor's degree.
She is a true inspiration.
Her moto is keep moving. Walk, walk and walk and climb stairs as often as you can, without harming yourself.
She is Canadian so it touched me even more.
The best part is that ...
