Welcome to New Horizons, Dedicated to MS Awareness and Education. This Store's sole purpose is raise money for the New Horizons nonprofit foundation.
My name is Susie and my partners name is Rick. It is our intention to open the doors of New Horizons in May of 2007. New Horizons is on the road to becoming an organization completely dedicated to not only bringing awareness to multiple sclerosis but to support other MS Foundations. The Montel Williams Foundation and the Direct MS Foundation are both charities we plan to support. We are also working very hard to provide a support group to those who have MS.
New Horizons is a charitable nonprofit organization with the purpose of bringing awareness to MS. It is intended to be an organization for people and friends of those whom have MS. The primary benefits and services to those whom have Ms is Information with support that may help them live a better live.
To raise money New Horizons will have two locations. One physical location that will service as a resale shop and sell donations that are provided by others whom want to help. The other location will be this online web site that will also have a store to sell cards that the organization has created, Ricks art work, and a resale shop. Both locations will act as a support center to those whom have MS or know someone who does. All information and support will be free to anyone. All information provided will be from experts in the field of this diet and from others whom have MS and are in remission or on their way to recovery.
Our goal is to not only provide information on a diet. We want to build a support group that will help achieve the results that may happen when you change your live style because you have MS and you want to recover. Food allergies are important and we want to provide help in obtaining this test if you have MS and can not afford it.
Many different diets have been proposed as treatment or even a cure for MS. There is evidence that a diet low in saturated fats and eliminating dairy and Glutton from your diet. With the aid of supplemented by Omega 3 and omega 6 may have some benefit for people with MS. However since this is not subjected to rigorous, controlled studies and since only few have been evaluated and produced mixed results. Most of the claims made for dietary treatments are based on personal accounts. Therefore the study adds that the reported benefits may have been spontaneous changes that would have happened without treatment. Now we are left with the possibility that even though there are many people with MS now in remission after following this diet and this information is not common knowledge. We have a true desire to help with this reasearch.
MS is a chronic, unpredictable neurological disease that affects the central nervous system and may keep you from living your life the way you would like to. As long as this is true, it is our believe that anyone whom has MS should be able to know and understand what others have in common who are in remission.
Our materials are based on professional advice, published experience, and expert opinion, but do not represent individual therapeutic recommendations or prescriptions. Therefore, it is important that you consult your physician before starting any new activity or treatment.
While many different diets have been proposed as a treatment, or
even a cure, for the signs and symptoms of MS, evidence of effectiveness is very limited. There is some evidence that a diet low in saturated fats and supplemented by Omega 3 (from fatty fishes, cod-liver oil, or flaxseed oil) and Omega 6 (fatty acids from sunflower or safflower seed oil and possibly evening primrose oil) may have some benefit for people with MS.
