Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders Book Excerpt:

This book proceeds through diagnosis (initial symptoms, criteria and classification, imaging, lab tests, and differential diagnosis), approved treatments for the various MS types (including emerging therapies where appropriate), symptom management, rehabilitative issues and general health and wellness, considerations for special populations, societal and family issues, CCSVI, related disorders that are often mistaken for MS, and an overview of MS clinical trials. To enhance the clinical utility, “bottom line” information will be pulled out and boxed or bolded for quick reference. Illustrations, tables, graphs, and assessment scales will inform the text throughout. Chapters will open and close with lists of key points where appropriate, and treatment chapters will include specific recommendations where available (AAN guidelines, Cochrane; including levels of evidence to support recommendations) and highlight areas of controversy. Selected chapters will also feature a section on the “Cleveland Clinic approach” to go beyond the literature and provide real-world guidance for practitioners.

Managing Multiple Sclerosis Naturally Book Excerpt:

A totally revised and updated edition of the first book to offer a holistic approach to slowing the progression of MS • Provides guidance on special diets and nutritional supplements, exercise, alternative therapies, and the effects of negative and positive thoughts on MS • Explains how to reduce toxic overload from mercury and chemicals • Includes life wisdom and coping strategies from others who suffer with MS Judy Graham is an inspiration. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was just 26 years old, 35 years later Judy Graham is still walking, working, and has successfully birthed and raised a son who is now an adult. In this totally revised and updated edition of her groundbreaking Multiple Sclerosis, first published in 1984, she shares the natural treatments that have helped her and many others with MS stabilize or even reverse the condition. Beginning with the effects of diet, she explains that many people with MS have been eating the wrong foods and shows which foods are “good” and “bad,” how to recognize food sensitivities, and how to correct nutritional deficiencies using dietary supplements. She also looks at reducing the body’s toxic overload, whether from mercury amalgam fillings, chemicals, or medications. She presents the exercises with proven benefits for MS she has found most reliable and appropriate, such as yoga, pilates, and t’ai chi, and explores alternative therapies that provide relief and support to the body’s efforts to control MS, including acupuncture, reflexology, shiatsu, reiki, and ayurveda. Most important are the insights she provides on the effects of negative thoughts on MS. She demonstrates how a positive mental attitude can actually slow down or even reverse the progression of this disease. Judy Graham is living proof that, as devastating as a diagnosis of MS is, life can still be lived to its fullest.

Mya Meriweather had her life planned out. Recently married and working on her MBA, she dreamed of becoming a professor and giving her son a sibling.

Instead of a rewarding career and a six-figure income, she had constant pain, mounting medical bills, and a body that suddenly seemed to have a mind of its own. Left wondering how she was going to function, Mya did what anyone would do—she hit Vegas!

Tackling Multiple Sclerosis Book Excerpt:

William Franklin Hickson III grew up in Orangeburg, South Carolina, a college town with a strong middle-class community of African-Americans. If he and his friends were not going to football games or watching football on television, they were playing football. They even had their own league—the FYFL—or the Front Yard Football League. As one of the first black players in the youth sports programs at the Orangeburg Recreation Department, he learned valuable lessons about teamwork, leadership, and respect. A high school injury prevented him from enjoying the type of college career he wanted—and so he turned to coaching. In the early 1990s, however, he began suffering health problems and was given the nonspecific diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. In this memoir, he shares his golden opportunities to lead, his big dreams and disappointments, his setbacks and achievements—and how his faith, determination, optimism, and love for family led him to succeed in his chosen profession. Join the author as he opens up about his inspiring fight against MS and how a lifetime of football and faith helped him move the chains.
