Improve MS in just 19 minutes a day

When you’re battling the pain, fatigue and misery of multiple sclerosis, there are days when just getting out of bed is enough of a challenge – so going for a brisk walk or a bike ride, physical activity in general, might seem completely out of the question.

But give it a shot anyway.

You might find it gets easier once you get moving – and you might even find it hard to stop, because a little physical activity could help ease some of the worst symptoms of MS.

And as one new study shows, it doesn’t take much to enjoy the life-changing benefits.

Start with five minutes of light to moderate exercise – like biking, jogging or even a brisk walk – followed by two minutes of rest. Repeat the process two more times, and you’re done.

All told, that’s just 19 minutes, including plenty of time for rest.

Those little bursts of physical activity can lead to major improvements, including less MS-related fatigue and a better overall quality of life, according to the new study.

Sounds good, right?

Now let’s bring this up a notch and make it even better, because there are other natural ways to ease MS, limit or even eliminate attacks and improve your quality of life without touching drugs.

First, get a little more exercise and physical activity  if you can. While the study found that a six-week workout program like the one I just described has benefits that can last for up to nine months, I believe you’d see even bigger improvements if you continue to stay active.

Second, make sure you combine your exercise program with other natural approaches for MS such as vitamin B12 and omega-3 and gamma linoleic fatty acids. In some cases, fish oil alone can lead to major improvements. And, as I mentioned yesterday, vitamin D can often make a world of difference for many people.

And third, work closely with a doctor who can identify the cause of your MS – including food allergies, exposure to metals, imbalances of stress hormones and chronic infection.

In many cases, treating these causes can limit or even eliminate MS outbreaks.
