A deeply personal exploration of the journeys of 12 ordinary men and women diagnosed with multiple sclerosis around the world, showing that recovery is possible

A diagnosis of multiple sclerosis conjures up images of wheelchairs, paralysis, and a shortened life, but in fact it's possible to regain mobility and make a recovery. This is a collection of 12 life stories of people who have been diagnosed with MS, and have been able to halt the progression of the disease and recover mobility by following a program of drug treatment, diet, sunshine, meditation, and exercise. These stories offer hope and inspiration to others diagnosed with MS, and an insight into the different journeys people take to recovery. Based on extended interviews, they also offer an understanding of the challenges faced by people with different types of MS and at different stages in the progression of the disease.

About the Author:

George Jelinek was the first professor of emergency medicine in Australasia and founding editor of the journal Emergency Medicine Australasia, and is the author of Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis. Diagnosed with MS in 1999, he has gone 13 years without relapse and is symptom free. Karen Law is a journalist and is managing her MS.

Review:

If you ever needed evidence that it IS possible to recover - yes RECOVER - from MS - you'll find it here in abundance... I hope this book will inspire everyone reading it to follow what these twelve people have done so successfully. -- Judy Graham, editor of NEW PATHWAYS - a magazine for people with MS
