SW: I strongly believe, given the unpredictable nature of the disease and how little is known about what causes it, that the only way to truly fight it is by becoming as physically strong as possible.
I don’t believe people with MS should act like patients. They should empower themselves to take control over their own health. I don’t mean this irresponsibly and that the advice of doctors should be ignored (I take medication), but MSers need to understand that their doctors don’t know everything about the disease because, if they did, there would be a cure.
That is why I support the MS Fitness Challenge as I am certain that making your body as strong and healthy as possible is crucial in fighting the effects of MS.
