Health Management May Alter Multiple Sclerosis

The unpredictable nature of multiple sclerosis leaves many people vulnerable to this disease that in many cases develop gradually. Living with multiple sclerosis often put me on a roller coaster of emotions and I am learning to cope with my depressions. Patients like me, the disease has an on-again, off-again pattern called relapsing-remitting MS, in which symptoms flare up and then disappear. Fatigue is a common symptom of MS for me, and it is very important to get my rest, eating a healthy diet and taking the recommended daily dose of vitamins. I am doing my best to maintain normal daily activities such as working full-time which means I am not going to retire unless I am ready to retire or forced to retire, which ever comes first.

Through Shaklee's website, they recommend the following:
Nutritional Supplementation
Vitamin D
Vitamin B12
Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Omega-6 Fatty Acids
Sterols (Sitosterol) and Sterolins (Sitosterolin)

Herbal Supplementation
Reishi Mushroom
Evening Primrose

I also found that wheatgrass does really great things for me.

I used to fall into depression very easily, until I started doing wheatgrass. My mood is now consistent and pretty level for the most part.

I highly recommend it. I do a large shot every day.

I notice a huge difference in my emotional stability when I take (and don't take) wheatgrass.
