After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, I immediately began my search for optimal health. Naturally, I started out with medications proven to help decrease the incidence of MS flare ups, but I also wanted to do more.After much research, I began to realize that medications were not the only answer for fighting MS. The more I read, the more I realized that there was so much more that I could do by taking charge of my health.
My first step to achieving optimal health was to consult my good friend Stella Metsovas, that happened to be an exceptional nutritionist. Through Stella’s passion and extensive knowledge, I was able to learn that nutrition wasn’t just about eating “healthy foods”, and was in fact much more complex. At first, the information was a bit overwhelming, but eventually, I gained a better understanding. The most essential component of my learning was to understand the relationship between the food that I consume and the way that my body digests these foods.
By choosing to eat whole, natural foods, and eliminating Gluten products from my diet and other food intolerances I have been able to see significant differences in my daily life. Not only do I feel great, but I can manage the symptoms of my MS and am able to stay active! By choosing foods that my body can properly digest, I am able to reduce any unnecessary inflammation, which can induce MS flare ups. Today, I do my best to follow the advice of I am given as it has proven to be more than effective.
