Before I read “Managing Multiple Sclerosis Naturally” I knew very little about the disease, yet I do have a friend that has it. She continues to live as normal a life as she can in a wheelchair. According to her doctors the prognosis isn’t good.  Being an advocate of natural therapies, the title of this book spiked my interest. I wanted to know more so I could help my friend.  I’m pleased to say this book didn’t disappoint.

I was amazed to find out that dietary factors, such as gluten and dairy as well as digestive problems such as leaky gut and Candida, may be the cause of Multiple Sclerosis.  In our western society “wrong diets” are prevalent and, personally, just being told I have Candida made me stop in my tracks when I read that there is a theory that it may cause MS.

Reading further, I found out that “pregnant women with MS often go into remission.”  As well, there are twice as many women as men that have MS.  Graham says “For some women, MS symptoms get worse before menstruation and during menopause,” therefore “Progesterone may have profound neuroprotective effects in addition to helping women with MS combat premenstrual tension and menopause symptoms.”

Judy Graham, diagnosed with MS at twenty-six, offers a whole gamut of information in “Managing Multiple Sclerosis Naturally” from understanding MS, to nutrition, from physical and complementary therapies, to living a healthy lifestyle. Although I don’t have MS I found this book a wealth of information just to help me understand what it is and what steps to take to prevent it.  For example, just reading ways to detoxify the body will not only help anyone with MS but also prevent any disease in those that don’t have MS.

I believe “Managing Multiple Sclerosis Naturally” is one of the most important books on the market. I highly recommend it to anyone with MS as well as anyone that wants to return their body to a healthy state. The information presented is priceless.
