Living your best life with MS often means planning ahead and, when circumstances require, knowing when and how to adapt. Many of us find ourselves in the kitchen every day. And, while cooking can be pleasurable, it can also be a chore that only gets worse if you're dealing with pain, fatigue, mobility issues, tingling in your hands and arms, unsteady balance, or other MS symptoms.
Award-winning author, chef, and blogger, Trevis Gleason joins me to talk about how planning ahead and adopting new behaviors can ease the burden of meal preparation. Trevis was diagnosed with secondary progressive MS in 2001, and he's sharing tips and strategies designed to make your meal planning and prepping easier.
We're also sharing the details about Crush MS, a fantastic mix of wine, food, and music that raises funds for MS research.
We'll introduce you to Air4All, a company that's out to make air travel a much better experience for wheelchair users.
We'll share the outcome of a study that has identified a single genetic variant that may determine how fast an individual's MS will progress.
We'll tell you about another study that gives us one more important reason to quit smoking if you're living with MS.
And we'll share study results from Denmark that demonstrate the impact of a plant-based diet on people living with MS.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
