MS Hope or MS Faith: Can either

of these Help Reduce the Effects

of Multiple Sclerosis?


Will it help us to have ms hope or ms faith?

MS hope is where we keep positive about the outcome of our situation, our health or what-
ever else we are going through when it comes to the effects of Multiple Sclerosis.  If we can find ways to keep up our spirits or remain positive, at least more of the time than not, this makes a huge difference for those of us that have been given the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis.

I love observing people. I have found that we can learn so much from watching other people's body language and with how they say and do things. I observed when I was in the hospital, that the people that had hope in the possibility of them getting better did get better, but the people that had lost hope were almost to the point of giving up and it was almost like their bodies were listening to what that was thinking about or talking about.

If we give up on ourselves, we have a much less likely chance of us getting better, because our bodies listen to everything that we think, say, listen to and do every single day.

Sometimes we don't realize that our bodies pay attention to everything around us. If we tell ourselves by what we think about or by what what we say to ourselves and others or what we accept as being true to us as to what other people say to us, this makes a huge difference in how our over all health can do better or do worse.


Faith is believing that something is true to us that hasn't happened yet . It's kind of like setting a goal and working towards it, but it hasn't happened yet. That's the best way to look at it. What we believe to be true to us dictates to our internal guidance system how to interpret life and everything in the world around us. If we change what we hold to be true to us, we can change how we interpret what we observe in the world around us.

MS faith is where we have hope in something that we might not be able to sense in the physical world using our 5 senses (seeing, touching, hearing, tasting or smelling). That is we can't see it yet or we can't touch it yet, but we have hope that one day things will get better for those of us with Multiple Sclerosis.

MS hope and MS faith sort of go hand in hand. One appears to make the other one stronger. We can't faith without hope, but hope can exist even if faith may or may not be present. It's just that if the 2 are present together, this appears to make them stronger together.


Can ms hope help those of us with Multiple Sclerosis?

From my own experiences, I'd have to say yes.
I know that not everyone will agree with me, but when I was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, I was so sick, because of how sever my case of MS was, that I was in the hospital for 6 weeks. I love observing people. I have found that we can learn so much from watching other people's body language and with how they say and do things. I observed when I was in the hospital, that the people that had hope in the possibility of them getting better did get better, but the people that had lost hope were almost to the point of giving up and it was almost like their bodies were listening to what that was thinking about or talking about.

We can't always be positive either, especially when Multiple Sclerosis stirs up our nervous systems, our emotions and our over reactions to stress.  In my case, on the days when I start to feel down about everything appearing to spin out of control again, because of the effects of Multiple Sclerosis short-circuiting my nervous system, I just take it easy on myself more on these days.

If I try to just find something to do on these days, to keep busy to take my mind off of how bad I feel (both physically and emotionally), I can have much more of a problem having an emotional melt down or over taxing my nervous system more to the point where it can actually aggravate most of my symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, and make a bad situation worse.

It is okay to have days where you have a "bad day" or even maybe a "bad week" (or sometimes even a "bad month" in more severe cases of Multiple Sclerosis), and it is okay for you to give yourself a break and allow your body to rest, relax and recover. This will help your body to recover more quickly during the tougher times with dealing with Multiple Sclerosis.

Finding ways to reduce ms stress makes a huge difference too.  Ways to help reduce ms stress can include:

* yoga breathing or breath therapy

* meditation

* music therapy -- music helps to calm the savage beast! (choosing relaxing music works the best)

* tone therapy -- tones are used to relax the mind and sort of "push the reset button" as far as redefining what is considered stress by our brains. This also helps to relax our entire system by relaxing our minds.

* getting more rest and setting up a relaxing environment before bed (at least 1 to 2 hours before you are planning to go to bed) to help reduce ms insomnia.

* taking herbs, vitamins or other supplements --> take ones that help to relax the nervous system to aid in more restful sleep (these can include herbs like Valerian root, or vitamin supplements like 5-HTP - a precursor for Tryptophan, calcium along with magnesium, or Inositol).

* Taking extra magnesium and vitamin D has also been shown to help reduce the over reaction of the nervous system in many cases of Multiple Sclerosis and also reduce ms relapses.

Note:  Herbs and vitamins should not be taken without the supervision of a qualified medical practitioner, or an Herbalist or other type of health professional for determining what is needed or safe for each particular set of health conditions that may also be present with your particular case of Multiple Sclerosis.

Resting more helps to calm down the nervous system too and helps relax the mind more so that this reduces the appearance of ms anxiety and ms depression from occurring.

Volunteering some where we can help give us direction and purpose (if our particular case of Multiple Sclerosis allows us to be able to physically do what ever we set out to do). This can also help to reduce ms stress levels and help reduce ms attacks and ms relapses.

* Connecting socially -- this can also help us to remain more positive more often.  This can done either on-line or off-line.

On-line social connections can include:  chat rooms, blogs, forums, or other social sites that give us an outlet to speak our minds about what we are dealing with when it comes to living with Multiple Sclerosis or to talk about the things that we have found that have helped reduce our own Multiple Sclerosis symptoms, so that we feel like we are helping others with MS.

Off-line social connections can include: ms support groups, or any other kind of social group that we can belong to or be involved in.

Any type of social connections can help tremendously by reducing the levels of stress that those of us with Multiple Sclerosis can experience if we are left to ourselves to deal with the effects of Multiple Sclerosis in our lives on our own.  We need each other, whether we feel more comfortable being alone or around other people most of the time.

MS hope and MS faith can't be isolated, or stand alone, but if they are combined with other methods of helping us to remain positive, as much as we can, we stand a much better chance at not only surviving from the often devastating effects of Multiple Sclerosis on our bodies and on our lives, but we have a much better chance of actually recovering better from whatever Multiple Sclerosis has removed from our lives.

If we can find a way to work with our bodies, MS research has determined that we can actually help our bodies to produce more of their own stem cells, which can help to repair our bodies more after each MS attack
.  

If we give up on ourselves, we have a much less likely chance of us getting better, because our bodies listen to everything that we think, say, listen to and do every single day. Sometimes we don't realize that our bodies pay attention to everything around us. If we tell ourselves by what we think about or by what what we say to ourselves and others or what we accept as being true to us as to what other people say to us, this makes a huge difference in how our over all health can do better or do worse.

Okay, how can we use ms hope or ms faith to our advantage?

Faith is believing that something is true to us that hasn't happened yet . It's kind of like setting a goal and working towards it, but it hasn't happened yet. That's the best way to look at it. What we believe to be true to us dictates to our internal guidance system how to interpret life and everything in the world around us. If we change what we hold to be true to us, we can change how we interpret what we observe in the world around us.

An example of this would be if 5 people observe the same event, like a car accident, and they are asked immediately after the event that they all observed what happened, we would end up with 5 very different eye-witness accounts of what happened with the car accident. Can all 5 eye-witness accounts be true at the same time? To each person, their own observations are true.

To change what we hold to be true to us, we need to change what we focus on.  If we focus most of the time on the idea that things never working well for us, it kind of ends up like a self fulfilling prophecy, where we begin to interpret even some of the good things that can happen to on a daily basis as being bad things.

In case you haven't heard of meditation, affirmations and visualization, these work based on the idea of focusing the mind on what you want to have happen, rather than focusing on what you don't want.  If we don't focus our minds on something, or minds just kind of wander and kind of randomly chooses some
thing to focus us on and then our body listens to what we focus on.

So -- choose wisely!  Choose what you want to have happen to you, instead of choosing what you don't want (unconsciously this happens, whether we can see it happening or not).

So the next time someone tells you that "Multiple Sclerosis is incurable", don't believe them!  I have found alternative and natural ways that have helped to reduce my Multiple Sclerosis symptoms and even reverse or repair part of the damage that Multiple Sclerosis caused to my body, when I was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis!

I'm not making this up!  My neurologist redid the mri tests, that were done when I was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and he has verified that the major scarring that I had on my upper spine is totally gone!  I still have Multiple Sclerosis and I do have a ways to go, in my quest to wellness, but my doctors are amazed that I am doing so much better than when I was initially diagnosed with a very severe case of Multiple Sclerosis, 12 years ago.

It has taken me a very long time to find alternative and natural ways that are helping with reducing the effects of MS on my body.  I had a very difficult time just finding much information on alternative and natural ways that have been used for those with Multiple Sclerosis, after I was first diagnosed with MS.

I did use a lot of trial-and-error for me to find what helped me to reduce the severe symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis that I had initially.  I finally found some doctors that would work with me and I finally found things that did help me.  As a result of what I have been through, I wrote an Ebook about much of what I found that helped, just so others with Multiple Sclerosis, don't have to go through all of the trial-and-error that I did for so long before I found anything that helped me to find relief.
