What I’ve Learned, Part 4 – part 2

Continued from part 1 …

 

  • For those with MS, nerve impulse transmissions decrease, and weakness increases, when the body temperature goes up [from outside temperatures or fevers].  Stay cool as much as possible.

  • We each have value and a purpose for living.  We have gifts and talents we are to use to help others.  Disease and illness does not stop that.  So look at your gifts and see what you can do.  When working in your purpose and helping others, life will get so sweet!

  • Try to avoid foods with chemicals.  This can be difficult unless you only eat fresh produce and make foods [mainly] from scratch.  Chemicals; additives; artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners; preservatives, and more, do not help the body.

  • What we reap, we will sow.  Or, every action has a reaction.  What we feed our bodies will eventually determine the health or sickness we get.

  • Because so much of today’s foods are genetically modified, and all kind of additives are mixed in, buy the best fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and beans your budget will allow [organic or farm grown].  Sacrifice in other areas if you must.  But good food is an investment for your health today and many tomorrows. 

  • We all have a choice in what kind of health we will have.  If the old choices are not working, we can choose new ones.  It can be hard, but the brain adapts to our choices.

  • Eat less man-made foods [in boxes, cans, packages, etc.], and more foods made the way nature grew them.  Nature’s foods have what the body needs in just the right amounts. And they contain elements to make us strong and help protect us from disease.

  • I eat foods to help reduce many of my MS symptoms.  I believe that some of my symptoms may be due to not enough good nutrition.  Eating well helps.  At times I use drugs, but not much.  Here are 3 examples:

    • Eating a Red Delicious or Granny Smith apple before bedtime reduces spasms while sleeping.  I sleep soundly and wake up refreshed, with a clear mind, feeling stronger, and having improved balance.  Incredible!

    • Eating a salad with Romaine Lettuce helps me sleep with few or no spasms.  It is so relaxing, I can barely stay awake after 9pm.

    • Eating a stalk of celery quickly stops muscle spasms.  In minutes.  For real!

Well, that’s all for now.  See you all next week.
