Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis – Retreat Melbourne Mar 14

Self Help
As most of you are aware I was in Melbourne last week for an OMS retreat. It was Life Changing. I am so inspired to do this right, I finally believe that I can do the whole thing without sabotaging myself.

Self Help Interventions
1 Plant based, whole food and seafood diet Relapse Reduction Rate 80%
2 Flaxseed oils Relapse Reduction rate 60%
3 Vitamin D Relapse Reduction rate 70%
4 Meditation Relapse Reduction rate 50%
5 Exercise Relapse Reduction rate 50%
6 Staying Positive
7 Be Smoke free
8 Medication/ Drugs Relapse Reduction rate 30% – 50%

So you do all of the above and what do you think your prognosis will be?
For OMS, it is about doing whatever it takes.. We are all different but we can all benefit from the above changes no matter what level of disability we have at the beginning..

I am sooooo excited..

    • Hi Ger
      Lovely to hear from you 🙂

      The retreat was run by Dr Keryn Taylor, who imparted all the results from various different trials. Professor George Jelinek was there for one day and is now primarily focused on gathering the evidence to give it to the neurologists so that they can promote OMS to their patients. The interesting this is that if one of their family gets MS they phone George for advice but they won’t promote for the moment.

      The OMS summary link is

      There is alot more information on the website if you wanted to add more details from under the Recover Program section

      There is also a very heart warming tail of a guy who is recovering from disability

      There was no conversation about muscular stimulation, I think that is because only one person there was disabled enough to need it.
