Publisher's Summary

This book describes the chronology of events that leads up to getting diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Dr. Fox describes the family dynamics and child abuse he believes laid the foundation for being susceptible to getting MS. It is a detailed look at how a psychologist constructed a treatment and personal approach that sent Multiple Sclerosis into remission.

The many medical approaches are described in depth. Medications are seen as primary in the initial and acute stage when first diagnosed. Alternative, spiritual, Eastern, psychotherapy, daily living, and diet approaches are covered in this guide on how to cope with chronic illness.

Multiple sclerosis is viewed as a disease where many factors come together to trigger the illness. 

The key to sending an individual's MS into remission is seen as finding the unique combination of factors that will tip the scales into sending multiple sclerosis into remission for that person. Given that the disease is idiosyncratic to the individual, not all approaches detailed in this audiobook will likely work for a given individual. On the other hand, it is likely that many of the approaches will work because they are generally healthy, in the case of alternative and psychological approaches. The medical approaches are specific to multiple sclerosis and have been successful for many people.

The underlying philosophy is one of using primarily medical approaches when first being diagnosed with the disease, and then bolstering the fight against multiple sclerosis with generally healthy psychological, physical, spiritual, and alternative means.

I enjoyed this book. It encouraged me to seek within while living with MS.

Final hour is OKish.

His personal long winded, self indulgent autobiography with very little about MS. I'd hoped for some positive inspiration about dealing with MS but this is just like the nightmare of sitting on a long haul flight when the guy next to you is determined to tell you the utterly irrelevant minutiae of his fabulousness and every member of his family. No detail spared. multiple chapters on some dreams that has nothing to do with MS but marketing for his other book. Very little of this book has anything to do with MS until chapter 36 out of 44. I'm at chapter 34 and now know how much he loves his wife, how much he hates his brother, his sister's descent into mental illness, his other sister's angelic acts, how he is a clinical psychologist, how he picked his profession, how his mother's family were uneducated, the life history of every one of his 8 siblings, how he grew up on a farm.... Steven Fox is fascinated with himself. Sadly, far more interested in waffling on about irrelevant people to the level of what his little sister wanted for Christmas when she was 10 than talking about MS. So far, 5 hours in, only about 10 minutes of actually mentioning MS. The final hour seems a little bit better but he still can't help himselfwandering off into wasting the reader's time.
