I have indicated earlier that getting your life back from the ravages of MS is similar to running a marathon—-not a sprint. Hence, it requires a different mindset, one that is the realization that the approach to getting rid of thing such as fatigue, balance problems, and heat intolerance should be personalized. One size does not fit all.
Personalization takes into account your age, gender, genetic make-up (including family background), The timing and route of exposure to toxic metals, pesticides, organic compounds, endocrine disrupting chemicals, toxins in the air and water, consumption of alcohol, smoking, dietary intake, and exercise. Exercise causes an increase in the activity of muscles; and of course, there is an increase of body heat.
Melinda, in the previous blog post on “SWEATING” made a simple, but effective, recommendation to produce sweating which causes a reduction of body heat. She recommended including chili peppers into your dietary habit. Try it…it works!
Mylene also indicated that juicing organic-grown foods would be helpful. I agree. She also mentioned methylation. An ideal manner to deal with this endeavor is to supplement your diet with folate, B6, and B12.
