Overview

A research-based approach to treating the devastating neurological condition multiple sclerosis, based on a combination of drug treatment and lifestyle modifications
 
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a serious, progressively disabling condition for which current medical treatment is not particularly effective and has many side effects, however, this guide provides a genuine alternative. Through an exhaustive, evidence-based analysis of medical research, the study concludes that MS is a disease largely determined by lifestyle factors. Showing that people with MS who modify their diet, their exercise habits, and other aspects of their lifestyle can stabilize the illness and potentially recover, these recommendations will change the lives of thousands of people with MS and support their loved ones.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"As a physician and the spouse of someone with multiple sclerosis I feel that this book contains much wisdom and guidance for achieving one's greatest potential for healing when confronted by the reality of this disease."  —Bernie Siegel M.D., author, Love, Medicine and Miracles

"The most exciting book I have read in some time. Everyone affected by MS, either directly or indirectly, needs to read it."  —Ian Gawler, author, You Can Conquer Cancer

Library Journal
An Australian professor of emergency medicine, Jelinek watched his mother die of multiple sclerosis (MS). Here, he portrays his mother's struggle and his search for answers on the disease after his own diagnosis in 1999. He provides a complex explanation of the scientific method of evaluating therapies based on published clinical trials and studies, called evidence-based practice, which all health-care providers should use when treating patients. The causes, symptoms, prevalence, and prognosis of MS are outlined, and dietary fats are extensively discussed as having a major impact on the progression and severity of flares. Vitamin D also receives a great deal of attention; other potential factors such as stress, exercise, depression, smoking, gluten, and dental amalgams are discussed. Drug therapies are outlined, and Jelinek offers his own lifestyle and therapy recommendations for optimal health and decreasing symptoms. VERDICT U.S. readers may find the Australian flavor, including spellings variations, somewhat challenging. Also, the explanations are lengthy and convoluted, adding to an already high reading level. Not recommended.—Janet M. Schneider, James A. Haley Veterans Hosp., Tampa
