We recently ran across some very helpful MS Webinars on Can Do MS. Can Do MS was originally known as The Heuga Center for Multiple Sclerosis. It's founder, James (Jimmie) Heuga was a former Olympic American Alpine Ski Racer; one of the first to win a medal for this sport.
In 1970, at the age of 27, he was diagnosed with MS. This development ended his skiing career. Instead of giving in to the disease, he used exercise and activity to help manage his multiple sclerosis. The Heuga Center was born from his belief that anyone can "Live their best life" even with MS.
The monthly webinar is an extension of their monthly e-newsletter. They talk about the MS educational article in that months issue. The following is a link to their archived webinars. To listen on their website - free of charge, you will need to register. Or watch a few of them below. Be sure to bookmark their site to attend webinars in the future. (Link will open in a new window).
And here are a few of the webinars we enjoyed. They're pretty long but offer some great information, so grab a cup of your favorite beverage, get comfortable, and enjoy!
Here is a webinar about MS relationships and communication. I think we all can use a little help in this area, especially when you throw multiple sclerosis in the mix. Communication is one of the most important things in a relationship. If this aspect is not good, it is very likely that the relationship will not last.
How do you fight fatigue? Put on the boxing gloves and have at it? Well, maybe not a good idea when you have MS. This one symptom may be one of the most difficult to get control of for MSers. Here are some strategies to help deal with this very common symptom of multiple sclerosis.
Do you have questions about the complimentary and alternative medicines out there? You may wonder what alternatives you can try along with the traditional medications you take - or in some cases, in stead of - to manage your MS. Here is a webinar that addresses them.
What types of exercises are best for MSers? This webinar will give you suggestions for safe and effective exercises that will help to manage your multiple sclerosis. Doing nothing, as was the opinion of many doctors in the past, is no longer thought to be the best strategy for those with MS. Not every MSer can ride a bike or walk, for that matter. There are options available that you can do, however.
We'll be adding more links as we find them. If you know of any, use the form below to share them with our visitors.
Do you know of any MS Webinars on YouTube or another site? Well, you are welcome to add them here, too! Webinars about how to deal with or do things better while living with multiple sclerosis. Here's your chance to help others learn how to cope.
