Summary, etc.: In addition to conventional medicine, many people with MS also use some form of alternative medicine and there is growing evidence and interest in the effects of lifestyle factors, such as diet and exercise, on MS. Yet, until now, it has been difficult to obtain unbiased and practical information about the MS-relevant aspects of these non-medication approaches. Written by a renowned specialist in MS and alternative medicine, Optimal Health with Multiple Sclerosis provides the accurate and unbiased information people with MS, their friends and family, health care professionals, and educators need to make responsible decisions and achieve the very best outcome.
