My MS Diagnosis Sent Me Down a Rabbit Hole of Miracle Cure-Alls! I had nothing wrong with my health as a young person, nor was I at risk for heart disease or stroke. In fact, I had never been sick a whole lot and I wasn’t much of a risk for diabetes or obesity. And yet here I am, three decades later, living with multiple sclerosis (MS) and rheumatoid arthritis. I have come to the conclusion that there are several things that could have been done to prevent my diagnosis.
Let’s begin with the most commonly given response – doctor prescribed medicine! This was my first reaction when I received my diagnosis. To say the least, my reaction was inappropriate. I didn’t want to do drugs or anything drastic. But the thought of not having to eat, drink, breathe or think about what I was doing all day and all week made me shudder. So needless to say, I did the next best thing and started taking medication.
Okay, so, that may have worked for a few short weeks, but eventually, I got fed up and went back to my “normal” way of living. At the end of it all, I was still suffering from some of the same symptoms that bothered me in the beginning. I still had chronic fatigue, the loss of appetite, the difficulty staying on my feet. So yes, I was able to stay active for a short while – but only barely. I hated that feeling of helplessness and wanted a solution that would work for me.
So what did I do? I went searching for alternative medicine techniques and I discovered massage therapy. There are some conditions that massage can help to alleviate – such as Arthritis and Lupus. Plus, there are a few other conditions that massage could easily help to treat – and so they helped my symptoms, too.
But I didn’t stop there! I wanted to find out if there were any other treatments besides messages that would help me deal with my MS diagnosis. I did some research and found that there are actually quite a few. One treatment that I was intrigued by was Hypnotherapy. Another was the homeopathic treatment. So I started doing some research, but I was not having any luck with any of the treatments that I read about.
Then I stumbled across an eBook written by someone who had her own battles with Multiple Sclerosis. She had left her career as a science teacher to become a hypnotherapist. What she did was give herself a completely candid look at her personal battles with Multiple Sclerosis and how she finally learned to overcome them. In her eBook, she shared some surprising and important information that I had been looking for – and had been ignoring up until now.
After reading her book, I decided to give Hypnotherapy a try. As it happens, this type of treatment works great on Multiple Sclerosis. In fact, it is one of the most effective treatments I have ever used! But what I also noticed was that unlike other forms of therapy, this one was far from easy. Like many of the other therapies, there are things you need to do before you start treatment and during treatment.
In her eBook, she talks about getting in touch with your inner self and dealing with all of the conflicts that may come up while you are treating someone. I have tried this – it worked really well for me! I was able to see how my emotions were running and the way I thought about things. That was a huge help to figure out how to control my Multiple Sclerosis so that I could live a normal life.
