Would TiMS users benefit from a Health Promotion section? Should existing health promotion information and discussion (eg diet, natural approach, mental/spiritual health, exercise/physio) remain dispersed throughout the site, ie in 'treatment' and 'life' sections at present, or be grouped for more intuitive and convenient access by new and/or experienced visitors?

Have your say!

In the meantime, here are some external links to health promotion resources for MS patients

Diet, Exercise & Healthy Behaviors
https://www.nationalmssociety.org/Livin ... -Behaviors
(includes subsections for Diet & Nutrition, Exercise, Heat & Temperature Sensitivity, Sleep, Vaccinations, Women's Health, Unhealthy Habits, Managing MS and Another Condition, Aging with MS, Anesthesia and Surgery, Managing Your MS, Find Your Wellness Program)

Wellness & Lifestyle
https://mssociety.ca/managing-ms/living ... -lifestyle
(subsections include Diet, Exercise, Stress Management and Vitamin D)
site also links to an MS Wellness Toolkit https://mssociety.ca/resources/wellness

Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle with Multiple Sclerosis
https://www.ucsfhealth.org/education/ma ... sclerosis/
(topics include Exercise, Stress Reduction, Nutrition, Vitamin and Mineral Supplements, Oleic and Linoleic Acids, Skin Care, Urinary Tract Infections, Vaccinations and Physical Therapy)
(I just learned something new and interesting from this one)
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
