There currently in't a cure for MS but recently Doctors at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield have shown that they have made a major break through in stem cell therapy and this has got the MS community fired up hoping that this could be the start of something big. It could take a number of years to roll it out to the thousands of sufferers, but it is very exciting news for anyone with the condition.

Self Management

Many patients either don't qualify for DMDs (Disease Modifying Drugs) or find they are ineffective and then tend to go down the "self management" route, by trying to stay as healthy as possible through, diet, exercise, supplements, alternative therapies (such as acupuncture, Reiki, hyperbaric oxygen therapy etc) and physiotherapy. As each persons MS is individual to them sufferers have to find what is best for them normally through trial and error.

Disease modifying drugs

In the meantime the only thing on offer to patients is Disease Modifying Drugs (DMDs), these are not a cure but can just slow down the frequency of and reduce the severity of relapses. There are many different drugs to choose from each with a different eligibility criteria but unfortunately at this time these are not offered to anyone with progressive forms of the condition.



Many years ago people suffering with MS were advised not to exercise but to stay rested, but modern thnking is the right type of exercise can help to manage symptoms as well as make the sufferer feel better both mentally and physically.
