The questions that most of us are moving around the head!

The questions that most of us are moving around the head!
Questions asked by experts and answers! The topic of the discussion was diet, cannabis and D vitamin. 1. How much nutrition does the MS actually have and if there is any scientific evidence about the connection between nutrition and MS? We are witnessing the first recommendations of Swank's child, and now in recent times Paleo diet, so recommendations for avoiding dairy products ... what's relevant at all? Many MS patients believe that diet is the cause of multiple sclerosis, and that dietary changes can affect the outcome of the disease. However, it is necessary to emphasize that a specific "MS diet" has not yet been found and the question is whether it is at all. The only nutritional factor that has been shown to be important in the development of multiple sclerosis (but also other autoimmune diseases) through all studies is the lack of vitamin D. On the other hand, there are many studies on the effect of nutr…

Stress People with MS are certainly more exposed to stress than the rest, because it is only confronting with a diagnosis as something new and unknown to a large source of stress both for an oblong person and for the family. In addition, MS is an unpredictable disease, and uncertainty and the anticipation of the next deterioration is particularly stressful. Everyday stresses that we all are exposed to under conditions of modern life do not pass or ill. The problem with them is that stress can be one of the triggers for the next deterioration, although studies on the effects of stress on MS have produced contradictory results. Regardless, it's important to know that stress can not get out of real life. The sick can not live "under a glass bell". Asking yourself and your family for such a request means pre-subscribing to failure. We should not fall into the trap of avoiding stress at all costs, because it is practically impossibl…

5 important tips when you are suffering from Multiple Sclerosis
They diagnosed MS - multiple sclerosis. And what now? I will try to give you the advice you need to adopt to begin to regain control of your life. Or restore the ground under your feet, which have escaped you when the G35 diagnosis has evolved in your medical records. In fact, the longest way is to accept one such diagnosis. And this path is uncertain and full of curves, and different for every sick person. And while you are listening to a neurologist who gives you basic information about your new diagnosis, you have a million questions in your head. Let's start with the first one that came up: Yes, everyone on the first, when they hear multiple sclerosis, thought of a wheelchair. Incorrectly! Multipla does not necessarily mean a wheelchair. Probably the neurologist immediately clarified the possibilities of therapy and lengthened the list of drugs as well as ways to relieve symptoms, but your whole life goes through y…

Need help: from whom to ask for? Contact with a neurologist is necessary from the diagnosis of MS. In addition, it is necessary to cooperate with other professionals who are involved in the treatment of MS patients, such as physiatrists, psychologists, social workers, physiotherapists, nurses. Associations with MS can provide useful information and support. There is a wide array of different types of societies and associations that are not directly targeted at MS, but they can be a refuge and a source of energy necessary for further life. Support groups for families with MS suffer a great deal of help. Talking with others who have a sick member helps in several ways. It is possible to share with them the current problems and to hear how they have managed in similar situations. Often, it only helps to know that there are others with similar problems, which reduces the sense of isolation. Help and support from friends is always welcome. Help s…

Behavior towards a person with MS
The question arises about what attitude is taken toward the patient. Should it be lenient, compassionate, or not? There is no accurate and precise answer to such questions, but only general recommendations can be given which in different situations acquire meaning and practical meaning. It should not be forgotten that the quality of relationships that existed in the family before the arrival of MS directly influences her in the new situation, and that the disease itself may be another test and test of the strength and quality of the family.
A family member who has a MS, in the first place, is expecting support from his family, i.e. understanding, respect, warmth, love, consolation, psychological but also concrete help. In this direction it is important to create an atmosphere that will enable all of this. It is especially important to know that MS is a very unpredictable disease and that it changes the person…

Computer Work
I give you advice for the relief of our disease. Tips are directly related to our needs or to our abilities. So follow: Tips to Make Life Easier With MS - Computer Work.
1. Speak, don’t type. “With voice-activated programs, you can just speak and the computer will type what you say”.

2. Go big. If you have trouble pressing keys on a standard keyboard, get one with larger buttons.
3. Replace the mouse. Try an adaptive computer mouse that uses a trackball to move your cursor or is controlled with your foot.

4. Make the screen easier to see. If your MS symptoms include impaired vision, use a screen magnifier to enlarge text and images on your monitor.


5. My adaptation of the computer table. This adaptation enables me at the same time to work on a computer and, if necessary, to practice.


Myths about multiple sclerosis

Myths about multiple sclerosis
Of course, the public knows little about our illness. That's why environmental sensitivity is extremely important, there are some myths about our illness that I believe in, sometimes I believe, and myself. I'm buzzing with the myths about MS and it seems I should demystify them ...
MYTHS ABOUT MS:
• You will need WHEELCHAIR - Everyone, absolutely everyone who has heard his diagnosis G35, is first seen in a wheelchair. The fact is that most MS sufferers will never need a wheelchair or other walking aids. In fact, better diagnostics and early detection of the disease, and increasingly available treatments, make MS an increasingly invisible disease.
• MS IS A MORTGAGE DISEASE - No, it's not. It is not lethal, but it is still life-long since there is no complete healing. But, in fact, most patients with multiple disorders experience normal or very close to normal lifespan. Most people with MS live a fulfilling and active life. MS is a chronic incurab…
