What alternative therapies are recommended for multiple sclerosis?

ANSWER

A positive outlook can't cure your condition, but it can ease your stress and help you feel better.

Some types of exercise, such as tai chi and yoga, can lower stress, help you relax, and increase your energy, balance, and flexibility. As with any fitness program, check with your doctor before you start. It’s also important for people with MS to eat the right amounts of nutritious foods. Ask your doctor what kind of diet is right for you.
