Fresh ideas on how to cope with the ever-changing challenges of multiple sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis: A Self-Care Guide to Wellness concentrates on wellness -- unlike most books about multiple sclerosis that are medically oriented and related to disease and dysfunction. It is particularly appropriate in these times of managed care and the trend for health-care consumers to be well informed. This chronic, often progressive disease of the brain and spinal cord follows a variable course, requiring patients to make significant changes in activities of daily living on a variety of levels - physical, emotional, social, vocational, financial, and spiritual. This book offers practical tips on self-care for maximum independence, well-being, and productivity.
