As the years passed I myself started learning more and more about MS and it's only the beginning. MS is known to mimic other illnesses which explains being told I may have Parkinson's (hands used to shake real bad), also having Lupus (fatigue, pain, weakness in limbs/muscles, cognitive memory loss/trouble concentrating) all common symptoms of MS. Finally with the proper testing, MRI, I was given the diagnosis of MS. Did you know that MS is also known to be a Chronic Inflammatory Disease? This explains my dislike for things that may raise my temperature (the summer, any type of cardio, even warm clothing during the winter months).
Trying to explain this to a few people to get them to understand my dilemma a friend told me to look into the spice called Tumeric which has anti-inflammatory properties. After a strenuous day I would wake up the next day with my body feeling very tight and stiff due to the inflammation from the day before. So when I found and started drinking Tumeric Ginger Lemon tea before bed it worked wonders for me as when I would wake up from having a strenuous day of physical activity I was able to get up and strut freely.
