Recovering from Multiple Sclerosis - Book Review

Recovering from Multiple Sclerosis 

Real life stories of hope and inspiration
George Jelinek and Karen Law

This latest book is the third of Professor George Jelinek's books, dealing with diet, exercise, meditation and a positive outlook on life as a way to take control of your Multiple Sclerosis symptoms, there are twelve stories of real people that have have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and have followed the advice from Dr. Jelinek's two previous books the first being "Taking control of Multiple Sclerosis" and the second, Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis (Google Play Books).

If you're looking for some motivation and inspiration and are willing to follow the advice given to manage your Multiple Sclerosis, look no further, the stories give real hope that just changing your lifestyle can make a real a difference to the MS journey you're now faced with, all of the stories are personal experiences of following the diet and lifestyle changes outlined in  the "Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis" book.

A few of the people in the book reported that some of their lesions appeared to have shrunk or disappeared on subsequent MRIs after being on this program, understand though that this not a quick fix or silver bullet, this is a total lifestyle change that you will need to stick to without deviation over many years for best results, it's a total lifestyle change! It appears that most of the people in the stories are living normal and active lives apart from some minor MS symptoms from the nerve damage from previous exacerbations and relapses.

Eating healthier and making lifestyle changes can never be a bad thing, why not give it a go!

I was given a free copy of this book to review by Allen and Unwin, click > Recovering from Multiple Sclerosis to buy the paperback. This is an honest review and was not part of any deal to get a free copy of the book.

Just for your information Dr. Jelinek also has a web site called Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis where you can find all the information needed to follow his program for coping with MS, the "Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis" book is often given away freely and at the moment if you live in Australia or New Zealand you can get a free copy, you only have to pay for postage here are the details for the free copy.

Below is a Youtube video by Dr. Jelinek
Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis - Dr George Jelinek
Professor George Jelinek is an academic emergency physician. His experience with his mother's death from MS, and his own diagnosis in 1999, lend an urgency and compassion to this meticulous work which offers a new approach and new hope for sufferers.

On a personal note, I'm not following this program as I am purely trying to lose weight at this stage by following the Paleo Diet which also has the added bonus of helping with my MS symptoms, if that goes well, I think I will give Dr. Jelinek's program a try, if I can stick to Paleo I should have little problem following "Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis" well it should be a lot easier anyway :)
