Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
