Recovering from multiple sclerosis

June 11, 2010

We wanted to share a good news story with you today about Amritpal Juttla and her recovery from Multiple Scelrosis (MS). Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a common neurological condition affecting around 100,000 people in the UK. MS is the result of damage to myelin – a protective sheath surrounding nerve fibres of thecentral nervous system.When myelin is damaged, this interferes with messages between the brain and other parts of the body..

Amritpal could not come to terms with her condition and refused to believe she had MS and as her MS started to progress she became a wheelchair user. In September last year a relative showed her a cutting from a magazine about a woman who had been receiving treatment for her multiple sclerosis at The Mind Clinic in London and was now able to walk again and decided to give it a go herself.

She initially underwent counselling with Hratch Ogali, the founder of the Mind Clinic, to better understand her condition and how multiple sclerosis works. She learnt to off load all the problems that were bothering her. Amritpal was then taught a number of  techniques which involve breathing, mind work and mental/physical exercise. A week later, she was already able to start walking again with a frame. The important thing here is that Amritpal had the strength of mind and determination to work at these techniques, not just during the Mind Clinic sessions but when at home every day in order to overcome her condition. It is very much a personal goal to use the power of your mind to overcome the complications in your life.

Amritpal says she is now regaining her confidence, and getting stronger day-by-day. You can read Amritpal’s full story here
