All about MS!

I've never heard of Multiple Sclerosis until I got an email from All about MS.
I will share with you guys what I learned about this

I'm so glad they contacted me to make a post about it and introduce their site to 'yonca is cooking' readers and I got a chance to learn about it. Here's what I learned about this disease:

Multiple Sclerosis is a demyelinating disease that affects the central nervous system. Our brain is like a huge computer and sends electrical signals down the nerves. The myelin is a material that insulates the nervous system, acting like the covering of an electrical wire. The myelin loss caused by MS affects the ability to perform these movements. When MS occurs certain movements can be impaired or difficult to make.

Multiple Sclerosis is a condition that affects about 4% of the world’s population, that is why, it is a disease that is relatively unknown. There are over 2.5 million people who suffer from MS. Most people, once they start learning about Multiple Sclerosis, and about its wide variety of symptoms and cases of misdiagnosis, tend to fear that they have this disease.

One of possible cause of MS might be genetic. Also another one is geographical localization of the globe. People that spend the first 15 years of life in areas at a distance from the Equator seem to have a higher risk for developing MS.

If you would like to learn more about MS and MS treatment, you will find very helpful information on their site. For a person with MS best way to learn about Multiple Sclerosis Diet and which exercises are good is to ask help from a professional and get a prescription.

Hope everyone is having a healthy& happy week!


  1. Thanks for sharing this information, Yonca. How interesting, that even geological location can have something to do with this disease. I hope future research brings more answers, to science and those who suffer with this disease.

  2. I actually have two mommy friends who have MS. One just went to Mexico for stem cell treatment. Thank you for posting this and lets all hope for a cure!

  3. This was very interesting. There is a fellow blogger at KNOW YOUR "ITS" who suffers from MS. She often writes about her struggles with the disease. Hopefully, someday there will be a cure.

  4. Thanks for sharing, I know a couple people with MS, but fortunately their symptoms are mild so far.

  5. Great post, Yonca.

    I know few people and families that are affected with MS.It's a constant struggle especially for the ones who have strong symptoms.

  6. I think we all know someone with MS. I looked the web site and it explains things very well.

  7. I've never heard of that, so thanks for sharing this.

    Wishing you a great day!

    Big hugs!

  8. I didn't know a lot about it either, but my sister-in-law's mother had it and it was progressively worse through the years. :(

  9. It seems here in NC there are many people that I know that have it.
    I have a cousin on my dads side and a cousin on my moms side that has MS. Also my mom and dads neighbor has MS and then a lady we go to church has MS.
    My cousin on my dad's side is only 39 years old and they have told her they have done about all they can for her. It's very sad to see her going down hill so fast, and at such a young age.

  10. Someone I know from High School has it and unfortunately is doing poorly now.

    I hope they can cure it someday! Thanks for the info. Hope you have a great weekend :)

  11. Thank you for sharing this information. One of my aunts (my dad's brother's first wife) had a very severe case of MS...and it progressed very quickly and when she was still quite young.
    Hopefully, now over the years, much more has been researched.

    Blessings & Aloha!
