Alternative Approaches to Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis stinks, which I say from personal experience. Normally we write some witty stuff about our classes, but there’s just nothing funny I can think of to say about having MS.

Lion’s mane mushroom has nerve-regenerating capacities.

What I can say is this: for the last 12 years I’ve been able to live almost 100% symptom-free, with no drugs and no medical interventions. I know exactly what things will trigger my symptoms, and how to avoid them. I don’t worry about having MS – I climb mountains and kayak and go to the rock gym and go dancing, I run a busy herb school and clinic, I home-school my daughter – I, with MS, do more than most people do without a chronic illness. Yes, I’ve had to change some habits, and make some new ones, and that does require some discipline. But in exchange, I live a busy, active, and healthy life.

So if that sounds good to you, come find out how I do it.
