I’m Back – embarking on a NEW journey


I have been really struggling lately – fighting so many symptoms but mostly fatigue.  It’s an effort to do almost anything.  I am totally convinced that diet has so much to do with it.  As I wrote in earlier posts, I was attempting to follow a gluten-free diet.  Easier said than done.  At first I was really good and did well with it.  I began to feel better but then slipped into bad habits.

On Friday, I found the book “Healing Multiple Sclerosis   Diet, Detox, & Nutritional Makeover for Total Recovery” by Ann Boroch.  So much of what she wrote in her book made sense.  After reading her book I took a close hard look at my diet and realized what a disaster it was.  Loaded with sugar and processed foods it’s amazing my body is functioning at all. 

Our grocery stores are jam packed and jelly tight with fatal foods.  It’s no wonder that not only are we obese but are children are following right in our footsteps!  As a nation we have adopted such an unhealthy lifestyle and we are passing it down the generations. 

All of the recommendations in Ann Boroch’s book were amazing.  I have comitted to eating the right way for my body.  I am staying away from sugars, processed flours, red meats and porks.  That means my diet will consist of mostly chicken, fish, vegetables, fruit – but not a lot of fruit as it is a form of sugar and whole grains. 

Today I tried a new grain…Quinoa.  I’ve heard about it but never tried it.  This grain is awesome and has a nutty flavor.  I love nuts so this will end up being a staple in my home now. 

I expect that the first two weeks will be difficult as I detox my body and get rid of the sugar and caffeine.  I love my coffee but I love living life more so the sacrifice will be worth it!

I will keep you updated as I go along on this journey to better health.

Swank, Paleo, Bible Diet?


Hello!

I’ve been doing my own version of the SwaPalible diet.  Yes, a combination of the three.  Really, what they all boil down to is eating nothing processed.  Eat whole foods and eat natural.  If you can’t pick it or grow it – don’t eat it.

I repeat to myself on a daily basis – garbage in – garbage out.  If I feed myself garbage, I can expect my body to become garbage. 

Prior to my relapse in July, I followed this diet pretty closely – eating nothing but whole foods.  I felt wonderful.  Then, I got lazy.  I paid for it.  Now, I am working at eating only what’s good for me.  If it improves the quality of my life, I need to embrace it.

Welcome To Everyday Life With MS


lora-guru.jpg

Hi!  My name is Lora, I am 39, a single Mom of a 7 year old, starting a new business and have RRMS. 

I was diagnosed with RRMS in August 2005.  I was in remission for almost 2 years using Copaxone.  In July 2007 I relapsed and as of March 2008, I haven’t gone into remission.  It’s not easy…at all.

I am always on the computer looking for information and others who have experienced what I have.  Most of all, I am looking for tips on what helps. 

On this BLOG I would like to exchange ideas with regards to MS and:

  • Diet
  • Raising a Family
  • Various Therapies
  • Excercise
  • Fatigue
  • Having a Career
  • Insurance
  • Disability
  • Relapses
  • Symptoms & how to deal with them

And, so much more.  If you have ideas of what you would like to see discussed or you have ideas, please let me know.  I find that know how others deal with their diagnosis and the tips they have found that really help.
