Anyone Doing Diet And Exercise Without Any Medications?

Anyone Doing Diet And Exercise Without Any Medications?

Is anyone out there doing only diet and exercise? My diet and exercise is on point but my family is afraid for me to stop taking my MS medication all together. I'm not even sure if it's doing anything.

If anyone is ONLY doing diet and exercise with no medications, can you please tell me how it's going for you?

I am seriously considering stopping my medication and going purely holistic.

Thank you.

I took injections of copaxone then rebif for 8 and half years and continued to have relapses and get worse. after much research, I decided to stop the meds and try a more natural therapy. I'm on a specialized diet comparable to Wahls diet and do leg strengthen and balance improving exercises four or five days a week. have not had a relapse in almost five years and am still pretty mobile. I don't have very good strength of stamina and have to stop and rest a couple of times each day. I understand the risk taken being off dmd's, but the continued relapses, side effects and terrible feeling of being over medicated leads me to believe this therapy is best for me. I still struggle with this disease but it seems the fight is more manageable now. and I should add, last week I did start on a medicine called nuvigil to help with ms fatigue and have been very pleased with it so far.

Just put Sue to bed. We are still trying to be gluten and dairy free and eat loads of veg. Sue is so much better and so much less fatigued. She is still on meds though.
