Item description for Multiple Sclerosis: A Self-Care Guide To Wellness by Nancy J. Holland...
Education about multiple sclerosis has traditionally been medically oriented and related to disease and dysfunction. In contrast, this brand-new second edition of the guide continues to focus on staying well in the presence of MS, a disease that --- while incurable --- can be managed. The book covers a broad spectrum of topics related to MS and its effects, focusing especially on the needs of those who have been living with the disease for some time. Practical tips on self-care are designed to promote maximum independence, well-being, and productivity. The theme of the book --- wellness --- can be described by the acronym: Weighing options Eating well Living to your fullest Learning new skills Needing others Evaluating situations realistically Surviving stress Staying responsible

Reviews - What do customers think about Multiple Sclerosis: A Self-Care Guide To Wellness?
Gives you information should know if you have MS Aug 1, 2005
This book was written with a detail and consideration for someone who has MS. It is a book that explains medicines, gives the bad and good, gives information about resources available to people who have MS and practical information on exercise, practical physical information and is all given with respect for the person who has MS. It has great insight into all foreseeable problems of someone with MS. Although it takes care to explain mainstream medicine, it doesn't reject a person's right to try alternative medicine. Some of this stuff in this book is available elsewhere, but it is great to have reminders under one cover.
I don't know the authors, but they did a great job. Since I was diagnosed with MS years ago, I read every book on MS. This book is going right on my kitchen shelf with Judy Graham's book and Swanks Diet book for MS.
