Dr. Drew’s Website Tips: Check It Out - Just Discovered New Site for Folks with Multiple Sclerosis
Tricia and I have a number of relatives with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in our extended family. I know the fear and suffering associated with this disease.
Accordingly, I’m glad to see there is a new website called www.allaboutms.com designed to let people know more about MS and to direct folks to services and products developed to assist those in need of MS treatment.
As you may know, MS is a disease that attacks the myelin in our bodies, the material that insulates the nervous system, much like the covering of an electrical wire, allowing the nerves to transmit impulses at great speed. With myelin, our bodies are capable of rapid, smooth and coordinated movements. Without myelin, however, it is more difficult to perform these ordinary movements.
The www.allaboutms.com website includes fascinating, specialized information for people impacted by MS and tips regarding new ideas for dealing with MS related heat intolerance and the possibilities of a Multiple Sclerosis Diet. All in all, I’m amazed at the power of on-line resources to quickly bring us face-to-face with crucial information and options - especially when it comes to MS.
