introducing my new blog and it’s very own facebook page!

since i wrote last time i have been feeling great, i’ve had energy and i’ve been sleeping well, not stumbling and barely numb! could it be the completely plant-based diet i’ve been following? could it be that round of hi-dose IV steroids followed by an infusion of tysabri? yes. it could be any one of those or a combination of all those. i’ll take it, wherever it came from!

i started a new blog to document my kitchen endeavors and farm share adventures, i hope you all will check it out and share it if it’s something you like!


About kateshunter

First and foremost, I am a mom to 3 amazing and unique kids. Up until I was diagnosed with RRMS in February of 2007, I worked as a full-time paramedic in some high call volume cities. This took me away from my home for an average of 52 hours a week. I have had a difficult time excepting that my MS will probably keep me from ever returning to a full-time job outside of my home until recently, when I realized that there is a blessing in this. I do have remittance of my MS, and although there are symptoms that stay with me all of the time, I am able to enjoy my family and take better care of myself than would be possible if life was still how it was before that fateful day in 2007. I started a blog that is devoted to my MS struggles and triumphs, focusing on my experiences with Tysabri and documenting my relapses. I mentioned early on that I would love to cure my MS with my vegan diet but have since changed my stance on that. I am managing my MS by eating a whole foods, plant-based diet in addition to getting the best MS care available to me at the MS Clinic at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, MA. I'm currently enjoying life in my beautiful home in Western MA. with my partner, my two teenage daughters and my teen-age step-son. My daughter Sunny and I are actively spreading the word about the benefits of a whole foods plant-based diet and hoping to turn kids and grown-ups a like on to the fun that can be had at our CSA farm and in our kitchen!

    There’s a free downloadable chapter from a brand new book and lots of information online at about how to avoid making your MS worse – and even how to begin to see improvement in your symptoms. It’s a simple diet. All you have to do is give up smoking, aspartame (diet sodas, lite yogurts, chewing gum), tomatoes, home- or commercially-canned fruits and vegetables, and packaged or bottled juices. Please check it out. It really works and could give you your life back!
