We assume one of the worst things anyone could do when diagnosed with MS would be to do nothing. That's why we're sooooo glad that Jack Osbourne hasn't taken the news as the end, and he hasn't let it defeat him!
In fact, he's going on the offensive!
Here's what he said:
"I've made a lifestyle change, minimising stress, exercising regularly. At the core, Ms is inflammation so I try not to eat foods that create it, like dairy and salt. I also cut (out) processed food and sugar."
And guess what? He looks better than ever!
Not only is he eating right, but he's staying active:
"I still go on hikes and do CrossFit workouts. Doctors tell me, 'You've got to stop this and that', but I'm not going to craft my life according to the disease. I recently did two 12-hour adventure races, and I am planning to do a 24-hour one soon… Who knows how long I'm going to feel this good? I might as well jump at every opportunity that comes my way."
We hope everyone out there reading that feels as inspired as we are!
It's one thing to be able to live your life like that normally, but it's a completely different thing to live you life like that facing crazy odds! It kinda makes it WAY EASIER to go out and live your life when you haven't been diagnosed with anything!
