I don’t know about you, but I get tired of all the “cures” for Multiple Sclerosis that people push my way. Everything from vitamins, to diets, to surgical solutions, to magic remedies. Have you noticed that many of those supposed cures are simply cash for someone’s pocket? Just buy their book, pay for their webinar, order their supplement, or spend thousands of dollar to go out of the country for an exploratory surgery and you will be cured.
I have yet to find any of them to include actual proof that they work…real documented, case-control study, infallible proof. Just someone’s word is to be taken for fact that you will rid your life of what ails it if you do what they say.
There are people that tell me, “Oh, don’t buy into the pharmaceutical solutions. Take this instead.” Yet, have you noticed they are doing the very thing they accuse the pharmaceuticals of doing…making a profit off of someone’s illness?
Their “take this instead” comes with a cost. And then, if I don’t buy into their idea of a cure, they proceed down the path of telling me that I must not want to get better. Really? You think I want to live with a debilitating chronic progressive disease? Hmmm…NO!
Trust me, if I was to buy into every idea of a cure that exists in the world today, I would be bankrupt and living under a bridge in a cardboard box. Each one of those solutions come with great costs. None are free.
I choose instead to make my own choices based on what I believe is right for me. Each person’s body and cellular structure is different, each person’s environment is different, each person’s financial resources are different, and each person’s MS is different. No one should judge you for the path you’ve chosen, and if they do…they aren’t a real friend anyway. Friends believe in you even if you make a choice they don’t agree with.
I did a quick search using the word “cure” from Google and found a cure for everything. Seriously! I now have the answer to every ailment, disease and problem that exists today and I will share it with you if you send me thee small payments of $19.99. Oh, but wait…there’s more. I will also send you a bottled sample from the fountain of youth along with a genie that will grant you three wishes…that is if you believe the internet to be 100% truth.
Here’s my solution for you (not the internet’s and it’s not a cure)…eat healthy, cut out as much stress in your day as you can, get on a routine for your sleep even if it’s only a few hours at a time, surround yourself with people who love and support you, slow down, and enjoy life. My remedy won’t cure MS but it will surely make life happier for you.
Be your own advocate, do your own research, trust what your own body is telling you…and LIVE!
