A totally revised and updated edition of the first book to offer a holistic approach to slowing the progression of MS • Provides guidance on special diets and nutritional supplements, exercise, alternative therapies, and the effects of negative and positive thoughts on MS • Explains how to reduce toxic overload from mercury and chemicals • Includes life wisdom and coping strategies from others who suffer with MS Judy Graham is an inspiration. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was just 26 years old, 35 years later Judy Graham is still walking, working, and has successfully birthed and raised a son who is now an adult. In this totally revised and updated edition of her groundbreaking Multiple Sclerosis, first published in 1984, she shares the natural treatments that have helped her and many others with MS stabilize or even reverse the condition. Beginning with the effects of diet, she explains that many people with MS have been eating the wrong foods and shows which foods are “good” and “bad,” how to recognize food sensitivities, and how to correct nutritional deficiencies using dietary supplements. She also looks at reducing the body’s toxic overload, whether from mercury amalgam fillings, chemicals, or medications. She presents the exercises with proven benefits for MS she has found most reliable and appropriate, such as yoga, pilates, and t’ai chi, and explores alternative therapies that provide relief and support to the body’s efforts to control MS, including acupuncture, reflexology, shiatsu, reiki, and ayurveda. Most important are the insights she provides on the effects of negative thoughts on MS. She demonstrates how a positive mental attitude can actually slow down or even reverse the progression of this disease. Judy Graham is living proof that, as devastating as a diagnosis of MS is, life can still be lived to its fullest.

The Multiple Sclerosis International Foundation estimates that over 2.5 million people worldwide have multiple sclerosis. Throughout developed countries, increased attention has been paid to this disorder, due in large part to advanced imaging technology and the development of new therapeutic pharmaceutical agents. Multiple Sclerosis for the Practicing Neurologist, edited by Joel Oger, MD, and Adnan Al-Araji, MB, offers a practical review of this disabling condition, especially focused on the evaluation and treatment of patients in low-resource environments, which lack these new technologies. It is the fifth volume in a series of clinically oriented titles developed under the auspices of the World Federation of Neurology. This volume gives concise, useful clinical information for practicing neurologists, providing a straightforward overview of each topic and including many representative case studies. Drs. Oger and Al-Araji effectively demonstrate that a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis is possible and acceptable without expensive tests and equipment, such as MRIs. In parallel, treatment options that avoid costly disease-modifying drugs have been stressed throughout. Topics covered include: Diagnosis and diagnostic tests Symptom management and immunotherapy Multiple sclerosis rating scales Clinical trials in multiple sclerosis Multiple Sclerosis for the Practicing Neurologist is the first volume to address the issues faced by neurologists with limited resources who must deliver care to MS patients.
