Contrary to what was once believed to be true, we now know that exercise and physical activity can deliver several important benefits for people living with MS, and actually improve your quality of life. Experts recommend exercise and physical activity for everyone living with MS, at every level of ability.
Dr. Gretchen Hawley joins me this week to talk about what kinds of exercises you can and should be doing — at your level of ability.
We'll also tell you about an experimental Epstein-Barr Virus vaccine that was shown to induce a durable immune response in mice. (And we'll remind you why experts believe that an EBV vaccine could eliminate most of the MS in the world!)
And we'll give you the details of the National MS Society's latest $19.4 million investment in research focused on stopping MS in its tracks, restoring lost function, and ending MS forever.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
