with Miriam Franco, PsyD and Guided Imagery Specialist

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) affects approximately 400,000 Americans and millions world wide. It is an autoimmune disorder whose cause is unknown

and has no cure.

There are 4 types of MS identified yet the majority of individuals affected are diagnosed initially with Relapsing Remitting MS (RRMS) which is characterized by flare ups with heightened muscle weakness, fatigue and spasticity. Rates of anxiety and depression are 3 times higher with MS than in the general American population. With Relapsing Remitting MS, women outnumber men 3 to 1. Due to advances in MRI technology, individuals with MS can now be diagnosed in their late teens. The majority of those with MS live with this condition from young adulthood on. With time, secondary progression of the disease can lead to physical immobility, incontinence, and increased assistance with activities of daily living. 50% suffer from cognitive impairments.
