From Using a Cane to Walk to Hiking Fourteeners

Posted by on Dec 20, 2011 in Testimonials | 0 comments

I was diagnosed with relapsing/remitting multiple sclerosis in November 1997, at the age of 40 (confirmed via spinal tap and MRI). I was diagnosed with MS after 6 months of dealing with unscrupulous contractors who built my new house. I definitely feel stress triggers MS.

I have never taken any of the man-made drugs for MS because I did not want to stick myself with needles and suffer the flu-like side effects. I wanted to tackle my MS with a natural approach. I started to see Yasmine in June, 1998. I followed her program exactly the first 2 years, then slacked off a bit on the diet part, but I continue to take my supplements with each meal.

I had my amalgam fillings removed in November 1998; and in March 1999, I had cavitation surgery in the locations where I had 4 teeth pulled as a child. I have felt better since doing all of these things.

When I came to see Yasmine, I was using a cane for balance while walking.  I am now hiking 14,000 foot mountains in the Colorado Rockies without even a walking stick.  I also downhill ski– something that requires good balance. Retiring from the military and exercise have helped me to de-stress. Attitude plays a big part in living with MS.
