Exercise & MS

Updated: Feb 18, 2023

I have watched many videos from the most reputable sources that suggest exercise is the second best thing you can do for your MS. The Research indicates obvious #1 is a DMT.

I believe in DMT exercise diet lifestyle and much more. This post is about exercise.

Regular exercise for people with MS can improve strength, endurance, balance, and mobility, mood and cognitive function.

Contrary to what may seem obvious daily exercise also reduce fatigue.

When done correctly exercise increase the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that plays a key role in promoting neuroplasticity. For people with MS

Neuroplasticity helps the brain's ability to adapt and compensate for the damage caused by the disease. The brain can reorganize its neural networks and create new connections between neurons, which can help to compensate for the loss of function caused by MS.

I can still go to the gym, swim and cycle. I have my days. When I can't road bike I love my e-Bike (Lectric electric bike). Even though the ebike is powered I still get plenty of exercise. Lectric now makes a Trike for those with balance issues

MS impacts us all differently. I believe in finding new ways to do old things. There may be exercised you can't do find a different way. My feet are in pain 24/7 so I can only run once a week on other days I use an elliptical (something I would have never done in the past) it is all about making adjustments to live your best life. Make progress not excuses. all the best to you.
