As Multiple Sclerosis Awareness week comes to an end, we'd like to suggest
a fun way to help a worthy cause. All of the profits from SHEMAR MOORE's
Baby Girl clothing line are donated to MS Research.
Since Spring is only a couple of weeks away, you may be thinking of some
new items for your wardrobe. By making a purchase from SHEMAR's
store, you can score some comfortable, trendy and sexy new clothes, besides
helping folks who suffer from MS. Even if you indulge a little and overspend,
there's no need to feel guilty since you're helping such a good cause.
More About Multiple Sclerosis ~
People with MS are advised to stay cool whenever possible. Heat intolerance is a common condition and often causes an exacerbation of symptoms. You might experience a spike of symptoms from:
hot weather/sun exposure
hot baths or showers
overheating from exercise
Use fans and air conditioning, cool drinks, and icy compresses to keep cool. Wear layers of lightweight clothing that are easy to remove. It’s important to note that although you have a relapse that is heat-related, hot temperatures do not cause the disease to progress more quickly.
Vitamin D and MS
Research published in a 2012 issue of Neurology shows a link between vitamin D and MS. The nutrient can act as a protector against MS, and may lead to fewer relapses in people who already have the disease. Sunlight triggers the production of vitamin D in your body but can also lead to heat intolerance-induced relapses. Fortified milk, orange juice, and breakfast cereals can give you a healthy dose of vitamin D. Cod liver oil, swordfish, salmon, tuna, and eggs are also natural food sources of vitamin D.
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable disease that acts differently in each person. The irregularity of symptoms can be enough to make MS a scary diagnosis. Arming yourself with a solid support system of medical professionals, friends, and family can help you cope with this chronic illness. Appropriate treatment can minimize relapses and help you live each day to the fullest.
