Recently, my wife was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Until that happened, it was a disease that I knew little about. It was also a disease that I did not want to know anything about, in case it would actually infect my life with what I thought of as a general malaise and hopelessness. My first reaction was, well, there must be some kind of treatment for it. Let’s have the tests, let’s do what we are told by the doctor and the neurologist and then everything will turn out fine.
Not that simple. There is no cure for multiple sclerosis. Like some would say, it is not a death sentence, but rather it is a life sentence. It is one where the rest of your life is defined by living with a disease which is very personal and unique to each victim. It is known for gradually wearing a person down until they are unable to walk, talk or do anything, except to fully live or fully die.
I had to go from zero to hero in a hurry. From not wanting to know I had to go to a state of being eager to learn. From the perception that the doctor knows best I had to learn that when it comes to multiple sclerosis they don’t know that much. It was hard to accept that the conventional method of treatment is one which only suppresses the immune system and reduces the quality of life of the patient. It took a while to gain clarity on these many confluent ominous facts. As luck would have it, Dr Terry Wahls just published her book on the treatment of autoimmune disease at the end of 2014. As a multiple sclerosis sufferer herself, she has found a protocol that can lead to recovery and good quality of life. I urge anyone who has been diagnosed with any form of autoimmune disease to seek out her advice and to follow it.
