    A Conversation with Jessie Ace, Podcast Host and MS Blogger | S2E16

    Thanks for listening in to our second season’s second episode. Deuces are wild, so we are breaking with our usual format and setting the stage for two podcasters to have a frank and intimate conversation about their respective journeys. Joining Geoff for this episode is the talented Jessie Ace – blogger, illustrator and host of the DISabled to ENabled, a podcast that aims to inspire people living with chronic illness.
     
    Jessie has interviewed everyone from Paralympians and radio DJs to chronic illness bloggers and marathon runners. She’s also a writer and illustrator for the biggest MS charities worldwide, such as the multiple sclerosis today, National MS Society, MS Society UK, shift.MS, MS-UK amongst others, and has also written articles and illustrated for Momentum magazine, MS Matters and New Pathways. Jessie was diagnosed with MS at 22 and says MS makes her feel blessed every day to be able to live a new life and to connect with so many amazing people. Her own experience of being newly diagnosed so young was negative and scary, so she wants to change this for other young people and support them through the process by being a patient advocate.
     
    In lieu of specific questions, Jessie and Geoff discuss their respective MS diagnoses and the challenges they faced, as well as focusing a bit on OMS and how its 7 Step Recovery Program can help add a ray of hope to people with MS.

    A Guide to the Fasting-Mimicking Diet | S2E15

    Welcome to Season 2 of Living Well with MS and thank you for being part of our growing podcast audience. Thanks to you and listeners like you, the podcast’s first season was a hit, with audience stats that landed us in the top 20% of all podcasts out there. Please keep tuning in and spread the word. Regardless of how people hear about Overcoming MS, the important thing is that they hear about it, and Living Well with MS is an informative tool to help make that happen!
     
    On this first episode of our second season, we are pleased to welcome a very special guest to Living Well with MS, Dr. Valter Longo, the scientist behind the Fasting Mimicking Diet. Dr. Longo is a bio-gerontologist and cell biologist serves as a professor at the USC Davis School of Gerontology and as the director of the USC Longevity Institute. He is the creator of the fasting-mimicking diet, a low-calorie, low-protein, low-carbohydrate, high-fat meal program that claims to mimic the effects of periodic fasting. Despite the implication, this is a juicy and timely topic, so tune in to hear what Dr. Longo has to say. To read Dr. Longo’s full bio, click here.
     
    Questions:
     
    Thanks for joining us, Dr. Longo. Before we dive into your dietary recommendations, can you enlighten us a bit about today’s rising fascination with fasting diets? Tell us a bit about the fasting-mimicking diet and what you consider its primary benefits. What are the main differences between the fasting-mimicking diet and other fasting diets? What are blue zones? Your research shows that fasting mimicking can help people live longer, but can it also help people with MS live better? Can you tell us a bit more about 5:2, 16:8 and occasional water fasting, and is there a difference in effects between them? What should we eat between fasts? Can we drink alcohol? What is the Prolon diet? If people can’t afford Prolon, can they get some of the benefits on their own?

    Andy McKenna is Stoked on MS | Episode 14

    Andy McKenna is Stoked on MS | Episode 14

    Bio:
     
    Since the 1980s, Andy McKenna has been a dedicated mountain biker, spending his life poring over maps, dreaming and exploring the mountains of Scotland and beyond. Turning his passion for two-wheeled adventure into a multi-award-winning mountain bike guiding and tour business in 2008, Andy is an experienced mountain bike guide and reluctant administrator who along with his wife Aneela balance their busy working lives by making sure they both takes their 'medicine’ regularly, meaning together getting out of the office, into the hills on their bikes as often as possible.
     
    Andy has been living with MS without use of MS medication since 2007 and is the driving force behind ‘Stoked on MS’ (irony intentional) and through this hopes to shine a light of hope on the reality of leading a healthy, productive and active existence by adopting the Overcoming MS way of life.
     
    Questions:
     
    Can you tell us a little about yourself: where are you from? What do you do? How did you find your passion for cycling? Tell us a little about your journey to becoming an avid mountain biker. What is Go-Where?  How did your MS diagnosis change your relationship with your cycling passion? What did you do about it? What limitations has your MS introduced to your active lifestyle, and how have you dealt with or overcome them? What is Stoked on MS? How did you discover OMS and what has your experience been with its approach to MS management? What compelled you to dedicate some of your fundraising efforts to OMS (which, by the way, resulted in over GBP 70K in collective contributions to date)? If you had one piece of wisdom or inspiration to impart to someone newly diagnosed with MS, what would it be?

    Preventing MS in Family Members | Episode 13

    Preventing MS in Family Members | Episode 13

    If you’re diagnosed with MS, your thoughts naturally gravitate to your own health and what you can do to improve it post-diagnosis. Once you’ve settled into a course of action and considered positive steps you can take to improve your health outcome, such as the OMS 7 Step Recovery Program, you might start thinking about your family. Given there is a genetic component to MS, prevention in family members (and this doesn’t just apply to kids, but siblings too) is a vital topic when considering a comprehensive approach to MS management. In fact, prevention is so important that it constitutes an entire step in the OMS 7 Step Recovery Program. And there are specific steps you can take to help ensure that your genetically-related immediate family steers clear of MS.
     
    Joining this crucial discussion on today’s episode is Lorna Wilson, who has firsthand experience with both MS and preventing it in family members. Lorna learned of Overcoming MS shortly after being diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting MS (RRMS).  As a mother of three – with a love of family, food, travel and adventure – she enjoys life with family, friends and community. With a family keen on delicious food, the OMS diet keeps those she loves happy and well-fed while positively impacting her own health.  Lorna is focused on MS prevention and empowering her daughters to take measures for their future health and well-being.
     
    Questions:
     
    Tell us about the genetic component to MS. If you have MS and have children, how likely are they to get MS? How did you break the news of your diagnosis to your children? Have you changed how you act as a parent because of MS? What are they key factors in preventing children and family members from getting MS? If you follow the OMS program, should your kids and family members be following it too? Is it just diet or should they follow the other pillars? Should children follow the OMS diet to the letter? What do the numbers show in terms of reduced chance of getting MS if you are a child or sibling of someone with MS and you follow the OMS program? Teenagers can be quite rebellious in general, so what are some tips to encourage them to adopt the right lifestyle choices to aid prevention? How do you persuade children to continue with healthy practices once they leave home? Any other prevention tips for kids and family members of people with MS?  
    Subscribe to this podcast and never miss an episode. Please review our podcast on Apple Podcasts or your favorite podcast listening app. On the final episode of Living Well with MS’ first season, we welcome Scotland’s own Andy McKenna, mountain biker extraordinaire, owner of a cycling trekking business called Go-Where and creator of the inspiring documentary film, Stoked on MS. Thanks to all our listeners for making Season 1 of Living Well with MS such a big success. We are excited to have you back for Season 2, launching on January 15, 2020 with a special kickoff episode on intermittent fasting, featuring world-renowned expert on the subject, Prof. Valter Longo.

    Top Tips for OMS-friendly Holiday Meals | Episode 12

    Top Tips for OMS-friendly Holiday Meals | Episode 12

    The holidays will soon be upon us, and we all know food is a big part of the fun. Whether it’s Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year or any other festive occasion that you may celebrate, this time of year presents the temptation of delicious meals whose ingredients don’t always fit the dietary guidelines OMS recommends. So how do you draw the line between keeping your palate happy come holiday time versus sticking to a diet that will keep you healthy?
     
    Well, that’s what we will discover by talking to Ashley Madden, a full-time food lover and health enthusiast. She’s a pharmacist, plant-based chef, certified holistic nutrition consultant and food photographer.  A diagnosis of MS in her early 20s triggered an overhaul of her personal and professional life and, ultimately, she traded prescriptions for plants! She shares her plant-based, gluten-free and oil-free recipes on her blog RiseShineCook.ca and creates recipes for health and wellness outlets like Forks Over Knives and Mind Body Green in addition to working on her first cookbook, to be released in the fall of 2020. Originally from Canada, Ashley has moved around the world over the last 10 years, from New York to the Netherlands, and currently she lives in Taiwan. You can learn more about Ashley and her taste bud-tempting work here and here.
     
    Questions:
     
    Can you tell us a little about your background and your passion for cooking? How long have you been following OMS? Has it been challenging to change your dietary habits? What are you best tips for making the transition to an OMS diet easier? Holidays can be a stressful time for meal preparation. What is some overall solid advice for reducing that pressure? Lots of holiday meals are heavy on ingredients that are not OMS-friendly, like meat and dairy. What are some tips for making holiday meals that are consistent with OMS guidelines yet still delicious? Would your tips for making OMS-friendly holiday meals differ if you’re talking about cooking for large groups versus smaller more intimate gatherings? Let’s talk about some specific holidays to see if you have any special tips or meal ideas for these: For our friends in Canada and the United States, Thanksgiving? Christmas? Hanukkah? New Year? Any other holidays come to mind that inspire any special advice? If there is one nugget of advice from your experience with preparing meals that you’d like to impart to our audience in closing, what would that be?

    Making the Right Medication Choices | Episode 11

    Making the Right Medication Choices | Episode 11

    Navigating the range of medication choices for people with MS can feel like walking through a maze blindfolded. There are so many factors to consider – from effectiveness to side-effects – so we are fortunate to have Dr. Aaron Boster, an Ohio-based neurologist specializing in MS, as this episode’s guest to help demystify the sea of Disease Modifying Drugs that are presently available to manage the symptoms of MS.
     
    Dr. Aaron Boster is an award-winning, widely published and Board-certified neurologist who currently serves as the Director of the Neuroscience Infusion Center at OhioHealth. Witnessing his uncle’s diagnosis with MS when he was 12, he and his family came to see a lack of coherence in the way MS was treated at the time. That experienced informed Dr. Boster’s drive to do things differently. At OhioHealth, he spearheads a revolutionary model in MS treatment and patient care drawing on interdisciplinary resources and putting patients and families first. Dr. Boster is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Neurology at Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, and a former Assistant Professor of Neurology at The Ohio State University, where he also formerly headed the Neuroimmunology division. Dr. Boster received his MD from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He also manages a popular YouTube channel covering all aspects of MS.
     
    Questions in this episode include:
     
    What are the levels that neurologists talk about when referring to medication? What does it mean to a patient if they are getting a level 1, 2 or 3 medication? Can you describe some of the most commonly prescribed disease modifying therapies that would help someone with MS make the right choice? Do you think that someone with MS should start with the mildest therapy first and then work up to a stronger therapy if symptoms progress, or use the strongest possible therapy at the outset? Do the most effective medications always have the most side-effects?  
    Subscribe to this podcast and never miss an episode. The cascade of holidays is around the corner, and you’re probably already prepping your palate for some rich meals. On our next episode, join Geoff as he chats with Ashley Madden about OMS-friendly holiday cooking tips, just in time to ensure your holiday meals will be healthy and delicious!
