This is a fantastic feature from the ABC’s 7.30 report, watch it here.
Prof. George Jelinek is a doctor who was diagnosed with MS 12 years ago and found abundant scientific evidence that lifestyle modification and natural therapies could significantly help his condition. He proved it in his own life and now helps many other MS sufferers improve their lives without solely relying on the typical drug therapies most doctors prescribe.
The response from the MS Society doctor is so typical…Very cautious that there have been very little studies on lifestyle modification, well the question is WHY NOT? There should be much more research in this area to show people how to take control of their own health without the dependence on pharmaceutical drugs. Is the MS Society investing in this research? I hope so. What could possibly be wrong with helping people get off their medications and all the adverse side-effects they bring – except that you no longer need to keep returning to the doctor for another script.James Complementary Therapies
