Happy Monday all! I hope you had a weekend full of fun activities! TODAY IS THE LAST DAY OF OFFICIAL WINTER! I cannot believe tomorrow will be Spring. I cannot wait! Also how crazy is it that we only have less than 2 weeks of March left?!? Anyone else feel like this month just flew by? I cannot wait to run outside in shorts & a t-shirt. I'm already convinced that it will feel absolutely amazing.
It's another MS Monday over here and I wanted to share with you some complementary & alternative medicines for MS that I found here on the National MS Society website.
These therapies have undergone very little (or sometimes none) research to back-up their effectiveness, so they should be taken with caution, but I'm the type of person that believes that trying things with open arms can be beneficial (or maybe not so much). It is always best to consult your physician if you do have MS and would like to explore alternative or complementary treatments.
Here are a few examples of the complementary/ alternative medicines that are listed on the National MS Society:
- Food & Diet
- Stress Management
- Chiropractic Therapy
- Massage & Bodywork
- Low-Dose Naltrexone
It's also recommended to supplement your prescribed treatment with alternative or complementary treatments, while also keeping a detailed log of your feelings/ symptoms everyday.
What are your thoughts on alternative medicine or complementary treatment options for ms or some other illness?
