MS (Multiple Sclerosis) - @themswellnesscoach

“I’m Jen Martin and I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 1987, with Remitting Relapsing MS (RRMS). I was 17 at the time. What is MS? MS is an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS consists of the brain, spinal cord and the optic nerves. Surrounding and protecting the nerve fibers of the CNS is a fatty tissue called Myelin, which helps nerve fibers conduct electrical impulses. In MS, myelin is lost in multiple areas, leaving scar tissue called sclerosis also known as plaques of lesions. Sometimes the nerve fiber itself is damaged or broken. When myelin or the nerve fiber is destroyed or damaged, the ability of the nerves to conduct electrical impulses to and from the brain is disrupted, and this produces the various symptoms of MS. In November 2017 I had an instant onset of Chronic Fatigue – sleeping up to 20 hours a day. Neurologist sent me in for several treatments to stop it. Nothing worked. Due to this he told me my MS progressed to Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (SPMS). At the time there were no medications on the market to treat SPMS. After a year and a half of this I decided to take back control of my health, naturally and fight this. I began researching all I could from nutrition to lifestyle changes. During this time I enrolled in the International Association of Wellness Professionals (IAWP) to further my research and learn all I could about the holistic approach to health & wellness. I graduated as a Certified Holistic Wellness Coach in May 2019 and currently going for my Master certification. I have since healed the chronic fatigue, transformed from existing to living with abundance and vitality. Thus The MS Energy Blueprint was born. My focus is helping newly diagnosed women with MS to increase energy levels naturally so that they can have long lasting transformation.
