Start Exercising

According to a study which had its findings published in the Health Quality of Life Outcome Journal, having a 30 minute physical exercise which is moderate reduce fatigue as well as depression among people who are leaving with sclerosis. Activities such as walking and swimming are advised for those who have sclerosis.

Takes Lot of Vitamin D

According to Rensel, who has a clinic that routinely tests vitamin D blood levels as well as recommend and provide supplements to those who have multiple sclerosis and are deficient “There is some relationship between low vitamin D and developing MS or worsening MS symptoms.” In fact research has shown that children who spent lots time in sunny spots during summer vacations were less likely to develop sclerosis later in life.

Stop Smoking (or don’t start)
