Welcome to Living Well with MS Coffee Break #33, where we are pleased to turn the tables and welcome our very own very own podcast host Geoff Allix as our guest!   Our Coffee Break series is your chance to get to know members of our diverse OMS community. In each episode, you'll join Geoff Allix for an intimate chat with a different member of our global community. Our guests will share their personal stories and talk about their challenges and victories, large and small. We hope you find common cause and a source of inspiration from the stories of these very special people. As always, your comments and suggestions are always welcome by emailing podcast@overcomingms.org.   Welcome to Living Well with MS Coffee Break, and I am NOT Geoff Allix. I'm Alex Twersky, and I am the creator and producer of the Living Well with MS podcast series. And I've been proud to work with Geoff Allix from day 1 as our intrepid host since the show's launch all the way through two spinoffs – Coffee Break and Ask Jack – and now 4 seasons. So why am I the one narrating this episode and not Geoff? Well, let's find out.   Geoff's Bio:   Geoff Allix hails from Devon in England and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2015. Geoff's father also had MS, and sadly died at the age of 54. When he himself was diagnosed, Geoff was determined to do whatever he could to remain well. Once he was told that he "almost certainly" had MS in May 2015, he and his wife launched into action. They Googled as much as they could about the condition. Shortly before Geoff was formally diagnosed in September 2015, they came across Overcoming MS and the 7-Step Recovery Program. He has been on the program since then, and, although his walking has gotten worse, he's certain that the Overcoming MS program is critical to maintaining his wellbeing. Geoff works as computer consultant and is a dad to two children. Geoff serves as co-ambassador to Overcoming MS's South West Circle and hosts the Living Well with MS podcast.    Questions:   Geoff, welcome to the other side of Living Well with MS Coffee Break. OMS is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and our podcast will mark its 100th episode this August. So this time around, we thought having you in the hot seat would allow some of our fans old and new to get to know more about you. Since the purpose of this series is to better get to know the diverse members of our community from around the world, who better than you to fit that bill. Many of our audience knows you as the podcast host, but there's so much more to your service to the OMS community, and we'll get to that, but for the moment, can you tell us a little about your day-to-day life in the UK, in Devon? When were you diagnosed with MS? Can you provide some context on that? When were you diagnosed and how did you initially deal with it? At which point did you come across the OMS program? How was that experience for you? Why did you decide to start following it? Many of our audience know you as the host of this podcast from its very inception, but you also serve the OMS community in many other ways. Let's start by learning more about your work as an Ambassador for the OMS Circle in Devon. Tell us a little about that, how you got involved and what this work has meant to you and your local community? Speaking of local community, you also recently represented OMS at Delamore Art, an exhibition where OMS was one of the featured charities. Can you tell us a bit about that? You celebrated a birthday recently, and you did something a little outlandish to celebrate life but also raise money for OMS. What death-defying feat was that Geoff? Just wanted to take a quick pause to make a couple of announcements that may be of interest to our community. The OMS Big Picnic is coming up again in July. This is a great event for members of our global community to organize their own picnics worldwide featuring OMS friendly cuisine. You can learn more about it on our website at overcomingms.org. Also speaking of food, tune into our next webinar featuring nutritionist Sam Josephs presenting on easy and OMS and family-friendly recipes and foods. It's the perfect kick starter for your own Big Picnic. The webinar streams live on June 29, but you can catch it anytime on replay. Get more info on all of these delicious happenings on our website, overcomingms.org. OK, back to you Geoff. Let's shift gears a little bit and talk about what must be scratching the curiosity post in all our listeners' minds – what's it like to host a podcast, and for nearly 100 episodes no less? How has this journey been for you? What's your favorite thing about hosting the Living Well with MS podcast, apart from working with me, of course? Did you think when you started that you'd still be going strong 4 seasons on, and nearly 100 episodes under your belt? I am going to be the last person to ask you if you have any favorite episodes, because I am sure you love them all equally, like your kids. But are there any that stand out for your personally, or hit you close to home? Final podcast question, and I am particularly curious about this one, but how would you like to see it evolve in its 5th season and beyond? Apart from the podcast, Geoff, are there any other fixtures of your life, whether related to OMS or not, that would help our community get to know you better? Geoff, thank you so much for being on Living Well with MS Coffee Break and allowing our community to get to know its podcast host a little better. One last question before you go, and as you very well know, it's a bit of a tradition in that we ask it of all our Coffee Break guests. If you tap into your experience with MS generally and OMS specifically for a nugget of wisdom that would help people ease into and better adopt the OMS program, what would that advice be?   Three Interesting Facts About Geoff:   In May 2022, Geoff completed a tandem skydive. Geoff's daughter is currently filming a primetime TV show. Geoff was a serious rock-climber and once climbed with a world champion.   Geoff's Links:   Geoff is an active Twitter user, and you can follow him here   Coming up on our next episode:   Starting July 8, check out the next new episode of Ask Jack, featuring the prodigious culinary talents of professional chef, writer, and OMSer Jack McNulty answering food and cooking questions from our community that inform their healthy OMS lifestyle. In this instalment, Jack gets a little salty by exploring the world's most popular seasoning and sharing healthy ideas for salt subtitutes.   Don't miss out:   Subscribe to this podcast and never miss an episode.

Après une phase de relative accalmie, l'épidémie de Covid-19, alimentée par de nouveaux sous-variants, donne des signes de reprise. C'est dans ce contexte que des mères contaminées par le virus s'interrogent sur l'opportunité d'allaiter leurs enfants. Un allaitement encouragé... L'Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) conseille aux femmes touchées par le virus de la Covid-19 de continuer à allaiter leurs bébés. Les médecins, s'appuyant sur plusieurs études récentes, rappellent que le lait maternel ne peut être le vecteur d'une contamination du nourrisson par le virus de la Covid. Tous les scientifiques s'étant penchés sur la question tiennent le même langage. Ils indiquent que, jusque là, aucun des échantillons de lait maternel, prélevés dans le cadre de ces études, ne présentait de traces du virus. Non seulement le lait maternel des femmes contaminées par ce virus ne présenterait aucun danger pour les nouveau-nés, mais il les aiderait à combattre d'autres infections. En effet, du fait de sa composition, ce lait renforce le système immunitaire de l'enfant. Par ailleurs, le lait maternel des femmes vaccinées ou touchées par la maladie contient des anticorps qui protègent les nourrissons contre la Covid. ...Mais des précautions à prendre Même si les femmes atteintes par la maladie peuvent continuer à allaiter leurs enfants, elles ne doivent pas le faire sans observer certaines précautions. À vair dire, il s'agit des gestes barrières recommandés à tout un chacun, mais que ces mères contaminées par le virus de la Covid-19 doivent respecter avec une vigilance accrue. Ainsi, elles ne doivent pas donner le sein sans porter un masque. De même, elles doivent se laver les mains soigneusement, avant et après l'allaitement. Par ailleurs, les femmes fatiguées par la maladie, ou ressentant des symptômes assez forts, peuvent toujours tirer leur lait, au moyen d'un appareil spécifique par exemple. Le nouveau-né profitera ainsi des bienfaits du lait maternel sans trop fatiguer sa maman. Par ailleurs, la maladie peut entraîner une baisse de la lactation. Pour que, malgré tout, son lait soit assez abondant, une femme affectée par le virus de la Covid doit penser à se reposer. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Dr Chantière Somé-Meazieu est pédiatre au CHU de Treichville, à Abidjan, en Côte d'Ivoire. Un épisode du podcast « Carnet de santé » lui est consacré. Dr Chantière Somé-Meazieu est une femme discrète et humble. À 43 ans, elle est pédiatre en Côte d'Ivoire, au CHU de Treichville, à Abidjan, une ville où il y a seulement une cinquantaine de couveuses disponibles dans les hôpitaux publics pour une population de plus de 5 millions d'habitants. Et en Côte d'Ivoire, la première cause de mortalité néonatale, c'est la prématurité. « J'ai décidé de mener cette lutte contre la mortalité néonatale parce que je me dis que ce sont des morts évitables. On n'a pas besoin de grand chose pour sauver ces enfants qui ne demandent qu'à vivre. Il faut aider les mamans à garder leurs petits bébés en vie. Je peux dire que je suis une activiste pour la santé des prématurés en Côte d'Ivoire. » Pour lutter contre la prématurité, Dr Somé-Meazieu a initié la première unité de soins kangourous du pays. C'est une technique inspirée de l'animal, développée dans les années 1970 en Colombie, qui consiste à faire du peau à peau avec le nourrisson, contre la poitrine de la mère, pour créer des conditions idéales de température, d'affection et de repos. Raphaëlle Constant l'a suivie lors d'une journée de travail auprès des nouveau-nés et des mamans. À ses côtés, on vit au rythme des prématurés et on parle tout doucement car – chut ! – bébé grandit… Cette série est réalisée en partenariat avec le Fonds français Muskoka, qui œuvre à l'amélioration de la santé et du bien-être des femmes, des nouveau-nés, des enfants et des adolescent.e.s par le renforcement des systèmes de santé en mobilisant les expertises complémentaires de quatre agences des Nations unies : OMS, ONU Femmes, UNFPA et Unicef.

Varíola dos macacos: "Não há razões para entrar em pânico"

O vírus da varíola dos macacos continua a espalhar-se pelo mundo. A Organização Mundial da Saúde anunciou esta semana que já existem mais de 2 mil casos da doença em pelo menos 42 países mundiais. Em entrevista à RFI, Celso Cunha, professor do Instituto de Higiene e Medicina Tropical da Universidade Nova de Lisboa, explicou-nos o que já se sabe até ao momento sobre a doença. RFI: A Organização Mundial da Saúde (OMS) disse esta semana que o número de casos superou os 2 mil em 42 países fora do continente africano, onde a doença é endémica. Começo por perguntar-lhe porque é que só agora o vírus se está a espalhar pelo mundo, já que em África já circula há vários anos. Celso Cunha: Não penso que a OMS tenha uma resposta concreta e rigorosa acerca dessa questão porque nós não conhecemos ainda qual foi o contexto em que surgiu o primeiro caso e, portanto, é difícil estarmos a especular porque é que o vírus saiu de África e se está a espalhar por outras zonas, onde não é endémico. Neste momento, o que verificamos é que há surtos, em diferentes países, que têm diferentes origens, provavelmente. Em Portugal, nós temos uma concentração na comunidade de homens que fazem sexo com outros homens e isso também se passa na maior parte dos casos que têm sido escritos, fora de África, e isso pode levar a crer que o caso inicial tenha surgido dentro de alguma comunidade e esteja a ser espalhado devido a alguns comportamentos de risco que estejam a ser efectuados, neste momento, portanto, ou seja pessoas que, neste momento, estão infectadas e que, não estando elas próprias também muito alerta para os sintomas iniciais, estejam a contribuir para espalhar o vírus. Eu penso que é uma questão transitória nesta altura e que, em breve, iremos voltar a uma certa normalidade em relação a este assunto. RFI: A OMS vai discutir, ainda este mês, se deve ou não classificar a varíola dos macacos como "uma emergência de saúde pública de dimensão internacional". Se isto acontecer, o que é que muda daí para a frente? CC: Em termos de doença não muda nada. O que muda é em termos de medidas que poderão ser tomadas ou que poderão ser aconselhadas a ser tomadas pelos governos e autoridades locais. Neste momento, penso que ainda é cedo. Há cerca de 2 mil casos em todo o mundo. Em Portugal, cerca de 300 e em França também já existem dezenas de casos. Neste momento, sendo uma doença que tem um curso clínico relativamente benigno, comparado com a varíola normal, em que as taxas de mortalidade são relativamente baixas, não há, neste momento ainda, um perigo de se tornar uma grande pandemia, como foi a Covid-19. Esse perigo continua a não existir, neste momento, até porque, em relação à Covid-19, quando o vírus começou não tínhamos vacinas nem nenhum tratamento eficaz. Aqui, à partida, já temos vacinas, já temos alguns fármacos que são eficazes para tratar esta doença. Não é uma emergência, chamamos-lhe assim, como havia na Covid-19. Não há nenhuma razão para entrar em pânico, nesta altura.  RFI: Há o risco deste vírus sofrer mutações ou esse factor ainda não é claro? CC: Este vírus é um vírus em que o seu material genético está numa molécula diferente do que, por exemplo, o SARS-COV2, que causa a Covid-19. A Covid-19, como sabemos, é uma molécula que se designa por RNA. Neste caso, este vírus está numa molécula que é o DNA, semelhante à que nós temos dentro das nossas células. Quando esta molécula, o DNA, se multiplica, também ocorrem mutações, mas essas mutações são bastantes pequeninas para as corrigirmos. A taxa de mutação dos vírus DNA é muito inferior à dos vírus de RNA, como o caso do SARS-COV2, o HIV ou até o vírus da gripe, por exemplo. Neste caso, embora, por exemplo, o material genético deste vírus, a molécula onde estão os genes seja 6 vezes maior do que o SARS-Cov2, que causa a Covid-19, não é expectável que existam mutações muito relevantes, que surjam durante este surto, nos próximos tempos. Não é expectável que haja uma grande diferença no material genético e que possam surgir variantes ou estirpes, que sejam mais infecciosas ou que provoquem uma doença mais severa, com uma taxa de mortalidade mais elevada. Isso não é esperado em relação a este vírus. RFI: A forma de disseminação do vírus leva a crer que a doença aconteça por contacto muito próximo. Quais são as formas de transmissão mais comuns? CC: A transmissão dá-se através de contactos de grande proximidade entre uma pessoa que está infectada e uma pessoa que não está infectada. Esse contacto de proximidade tem de ser um contacto prolongado, em princípio, e a transmissão é feita através de gotículas respiratórias ou através do contacto com fluídos contaminados, ou seja, que contenham partículas virais de pessoas infectadas. Por exemplo, se nós tocarmos numa daquelas pequenas borbulhas, que têm vírus lá dentro, portanto, aquele líquido que surge nas pessoas que estão doentes, aí podem transmitir a doença. Esta doença transmite-se pela transmissão de fluídos corporais de pessoas infectadas, nomeadamente, através de gotículas respiratórias. Mas, uma outra diferença em relação à Covid-19 é que aqui, para uma pessoa ser infectada por alguém contaminado é necessário um contacto de proximidade mais prolongado, bastante mais prolongado. Nós não estamos pertante o risco de irmos, por exemplo, no autocarro, e estar uma pessoa infectada ao nosso lado e de apanhar a doença. É muito pouco provável que isso aconteça. Não é uma impossibilidade, mas é uma improbabilidade bastante elevada. O contacto dá-se, sobretudo, entre pessoas que coabitam, que ocupam os mesmos espaços durante muito tempo. RFI: Quais são os principais sintomas? Como é que se pode indentificar a doença? CC: Nos primeiros três dias, os sintomas são relativamente inespecíficos, ou seja, podem ser confundidos com outra doença viral, até com uma gripe porque os sintomas são febre, dores musculares ou dores de cabeça e, às vezes, uma pequena erupção que pode surgir um bocadinho depois já, mas os sinais iniciais são relativamente inespecíficos. O que diferencia esta doença, por exemplo, da varíola normal, a que estávamos habituados e que foi erradicada é que aqui os gânglios linfáticos têm tendência a aparecer bastante inchados. Isso é o que diferencia, sobretudo, esta varíola dos macacos da varíola clássica. Tirando isso, eu diria que os primeiros sintomas são inespecíficos e depois começam a aparecer as pequenas erupções cutâneas, que vão evoluindo e que começam por ser umas pequenas manchas, relativamente planas, e depois vão surgindo pequenas borbulhinhas que vão ficando com um líquido transparente e, numa fase mais tardia, com um líquido mais amarelo escuro. Depois, elas rebentam e tornam-se uma crosta. Depois quando caem, as pessoas são consideradas curadas. Todo este processo, desde a infecção até à cura, pode durar entre 2 a 4 semanas, aproximadamente. RFI: Até ao momento, só se têm registado formas leves da doença. Há risco de morte associado a este vírus? CC: Há sempre risco de morte, mas é muito baixo. O risco de morte na varíola dos macacos é substancialmente inferior ao da varíola clássica. Na varíola clássica, poderíamos ter taxas de mortalidade, muito acima dos 30% e aqui estamos a falar de cerca de 10 vezes menos, aproximadamente. Estes casos fatais ocorrem, infelizmente, apenas, sobretudo, em países com sistemas de saúde débeis porque nos países em que os sistemas de saúde são mais ricos, robustos e onde há melhores condições de tratamento, a taxa de mortalidade da varíola dos macacos aproximou-se bastante do 0 quase. RFI: Os casos registados em vários continentes afectam mais homens do que mulheres. Porque é que os homens têm um sistema imunitário menos resistente a este vírus? CC: Não estou de acordo com isso, ou seja, eu estou de acordo que afectam mais homens, são, sobretudo, homens, mas isso deve-se, segundo aquilo que sabemos, hoje em dia, ao facto do vírus ter começado a dissiminar-se dentro de uma comunidade de homens que faziam sexo com outros homens e não tem a ver propriamente com diferenças entre o sistema imunitário de homens e mulheres, mas sim com comportamentos e à respectiva transmissão, através dos comportamentos. RFI: O director-geral da OMS, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, lamentou há poucos dias o facto de só se ter dado a devida atenção ao vírus quando este começou a afectar países ricos e desenvolvidos, uma vez que em África o vírus já circula há vários anos. Qual é o seu ponto de vista sobre o assunto? CC: O vírus circula em África há vários anos, é verdade. Ele foi identificado pela primeira vez em 1970, o primeiro caso humano. Nós sabemos que na África Central, ele é endémico, e que, periodiamente, surgem alguns surtos, mas estes têm sido muito limitados.  Apesar de, às vezes apareceram algumas dezenas, ou até mesmo centenas de casos, a doença tem vindo a concentrar-se naquela região. Isso tem a ver também com o facto de também nesses países, existirem reservatórios de animais porque este é um vírus zoonótico, ou seja, o vírus pode estar no reservatório dos animais e esses animais podem transmiti-lo ao Homem também. Esses reservatórios não existem nos países ocidentais em estado selvagem e, portanto, o risco de contaminação, através do contacto com animais não existia, pelo menos no Ocidente e em África existia, daí haver uma endemicidade nestas regiões. O que acontece aqui é que passamos de um vírus que estava circunscrito a uma região e com uma taxa de mortalidade que era cerca de 10/15%, mas isso mais relacionado com a debilidade dos sistemas de saúde, não pela gravidade da doença ser maior do que está a ser agora. Agora, o que está a acontecer de diferente é que o vírus se está a espalhar por todo o mundo e, em consequência disso, se estar a dar mais atenção. RFI: Para terminar e falando agora no caso concreto de Paris e de outras cidades europeias, o número de casos tem vindo a aumentar substancialmente. É preocupante, numa altura em que os contágios de Covid-19 estão também eles a aumentar? CC: É preocupante porque poderá ser um peso para os sistemas de saúde, embora a maior parte dos casos da varíola dos macacos que nós temos registados não obrigue a nenhuma hospitalização e possam ser tratados em ambulatório, através do isolamento das pessoas em casa e à restrição de contactos. Apesar de tudo, não é prevísivel que esta doença venha a ter um peso significativo nos sistemas de saúde. Poderá ter um peso económico devido à abstenção de trabalho porque as pessoas vão faltar ao trabalho e estar de 2 a 4 semanas, em casa. Se o vírus se espalhar muito poderá existir algum peso económico, mas para os sistemas de saúde não penso que vá existir uma pressão tão grave como aconteceu com a Covid-19 porque não vai obrigar a internamentos em tão grande número. Para os sistemas de saúde, em princípio, não vai ser um grande problema.

Bio:   Shari Short is a patient advocate, a professional in healthcare communications and naturally, a standup comedian. As Senior Director of Insights and Strategy at Bionical Solutions, she has over 20 years of experience in patient education from behavior change to clinical trial recruitment. A developmental psychologist by training, Shari has held positions with the National Cancer Institute, Centers for Disease Control, Virginia Department of Health, Fox Chase Cancer Center, and various healthcare marketing firms. Shari received her M.A. in developmental psychology from Columbia University Teachers College.    Shari has been living with Multiple Sclerosis for 14 years. As a Patient Advocate, Shari has shared insights from living with Multiple Sclerosis to the New Jersey statewide advocacy committee of the National MS Society as well as written for their national magazine, Momentum. She incorporated her experience with MS into a sold-out one-woman show called “It's My Mother's MS, I just Have It” and a satire letter series from “The Crazy Cane Lady”. Shari has been featured on multiple podcasts. She has been performing standup comedy since her teen years (read: the 80s) and has opened for performers such as Shawn Colvin and Sandra Bernhard.   Questions:   Welcome to the program, Shari, and thanks so much for joining us on Living Well with MS. You have a very eclectic background, from standup comedy to developmental psychology. Can you tell us a bit about how that all ties together and has helped you forge your current path focused on behavior change? We know humor is important to you, an essential part of your personal and even professional identity. And we'll dig into that in a moment. But first, I'd like to understand your experience with MS. Can you give us a bit of an intro to that, anything you feel comfortable sharing? Was there a point when you developed a philosophy or even a methodology for using humor to cope with some of the challenges of MS? Can you tell our audience about that journey? You've produced a lot of humorous output about MS. Some notable things to mention (incidentally links to many of these can be found in the show notes, so I encourage everyone to have a look): a one woman show called “On My Nerves”; a satirical piece for Momentum, the National MS Society magazine; presentations at the University of Pennsylvania; various podcast appearances, including this one. Do any of these stand out for you, and if so, how? I understand that humor has personally helped you deal with scary situations, reframe your current physical abilities, and not take yourself too seriously. How transferable are these “benefits” to the broader MS community, and how would you advise people who don't have the same organic relationship with humor that you do tap into them? How do you overcome the discomfort some people may feel when you apply a humorous or jokey spin to a “serious” topic such as MS? There's a principle I understand you have called “laughing on purpose”. Can you tell us a little more about that? So I'm getting the sense that humor can be many things as applied to MS: a coping tool, a teaching tool, or even a defense mechanism. What's your best advice for how Joe Q. Public with MS can harness humor to its maximum positive advantage? Thanks so much for being our guest on Living Well with MS, Shari. We are thrilled to learn about the amazing work you're doing to help people with MS ease their burdens and get the most out of life using humor.

Welcome to the program, Shari, and thanks so much for joining us on Living Well with MS.   Shari Short (02:34): Thank you for having me.   Geoff Allix (02:37): You have a very eclectic background, from stand-up comedy to developmental psychology. Can you tell us a bit about how that all ties together and has helped you forward your current path focused on behavior change?   Shari Short (02:51): Sure. I mean, doesn't it sound like such a natural path, from stand-up comedy to developmental psychology. It's like a board game, really, it's like a party game. I basically started out really wanting to be in the arts and especially stand-up, I preferred stand-up to acting. I sing, I act, whatever, but stand-up was my favorite. And I for some reason had the guts to start it at 14 years of age when I had braces and was in high school and was able to go into the comedy clubs and just watch, watch and learn. And the older comics there just, they adopted me and took really good care of me. I read John Belushi's book, a book about John Belushi by Woodward, at a young age, and it scared me to have to depend on my sense of humor for finances.   So I said, "Well, I want to have like a solid degree and a solid job and do stand-up." And of course, when you're a teenager, you think that all works. I was eager to at least get academic credentials behind me, so I went to film school, went to NYU, and there I minored in psychology, spent a lot of time during the summers, working with young kids and parents in theater camps, and just absolutely fell in love with... Excuse me... The way that our lives changed when we become parents. And it wasn't me, I was watching people become parents, and I was helping parents and I wasn't even a parent yet. So when I chose developmental psychology for my graduate work, I felt like that's what I'm going to go into. I want to create resources for parents.   I became concerned with... like we talked about Microsoft earlier, I was like, "Are there books for parents on how to use the computer?" I interned with Sesame Street. I was very focused on being creative within this academic psych setting. But once you go to grad school, nothing's really funny, so I stopped doing comedy. I had opened for Sandra Bernhard, I'd opened for Shawn Colvin, I'd had a wonderful time, but you got to commit. If you want to do stand-up, you have to commit and you have to want it, you have to want that life and I preferred giving lectures.   I preferred making the audience laugh that they had to be there, I had to grade them or they had to be graded, they had to show up. And I tipped my hat off to everybody I know that's successful now, that just put in those hours and put in that amount of travel to live the life of a stand-up comic, especially in the 90s, and the early 2000s, because that was way before MS for me, but something I knew I didn't have the stamina for. And I was so nervous to not get paid and have it all depend on my sense of humor, that was a big thing for me.   Geoff Allix (06:14): We'll come back to the humor in a bit because it's obviously an essential part of your personal and professional identity. But first, because this is a Living Well with MS Podcast, we want to understand a bit about your experience with MS. Could you give us a bit of an intro, anything that you feel comfortable sharing about your MS journey?   Shari Short (06:35): Sure. I was diagnosed in the summer of 2008. I had become a runner a year or so before that, and was training pretty intensely for a 10k, and I suddenly had vision loss and pain behind my eye. It presented as the optic neuritis, but I didn't know that. For me it was, "Oh, there's pain, there's my eye, there's my head. Clearly it's a brain tumor." And I panicked and went to the urgent care center and they sent me to the ER, and I got an emergency eye doctor appointment the following morning. And the eye doctor just said, "Oh, this is really classic optic neuritis." And I was like, "Great, give me some eye drops." I didn't know what that meant, and he just kept sitting there and I'm like, "Oh, you have more to tell me, don't you?"   He got me into a pretty quick appointment with a neurologist. And I don't have a slow, drawn-out diagnosis story, like so many. They had a neuroradiologist at my MRI, they saw lesions, I was diagnosed really quickly, all based on that one event with the optic neuritis.   Geoff Allix (07:53): I think there is a difference in different health care systems around the world, it does seem to me the Americans I've spoken to, do get diagnosed typically quite quickly, whereas in the UK we often get diagnosed quite slowly. But on the flip side, we get lots of free medication.   Shari Short (08:10): Yes, it's quite the flip side.   Geoff Allix (08:13): Definitely tradeoffs between the different-   Shari Short (08:13): It's quite the flip side.   Geoff Allix (08:16): If someone were to come up with the best of both worlds, it'd be pretty good. But yeah. Yeah, I would never say anything bad about our system, our system is fantastic.   Shari Short (08:24): I'm a fan of your system.   Geoff Allix (08:25): But yeah, there are downsides to how quickly things happen occasionally, but anyway, we can live with that.   Shari Short (08:30): Yeah [inaudible 00:08:33].   Geoff Allix (08:33): Was there a point when you developed a philosophy or methodology even of using humor to cope with some of the challenges that came up because of MS?   Shari Short (08:45): It was pretty organic, I think, for me to be using my humor to cope. And I just didn't realize how naturally it would be until I was actually in a situation where I had to really tap into my coping skills. At my very first MRI where they diagnosed me, and the neuroradiologist is literally showing me my scan so I'm seeing my skull, the first thing out of my mouth, Geoff, was, "Do I look fat?" Right? It's like, "What?" Like, "Where'd that come from?" Like okay, I'm nervous and I'm processing, and clearly I'm going to try to lighten the mood. And to just see myself consistently doing that, when I got my first handicap tag and I was very sad about it, I remembered I had a dress the same color and I'm like, "I can finally accessorize."   So things were just coming to me in a way to get me off of the morbid train, to get me off of the "Okay, I could really [inaudible 00:09:53] because of this particular situation, but I'm going to find the humor in it." And the more I did that, the more my friends would say to me, "You've got a collection of stuff here. You've got stories, you've got strangers who've said ridiculous things to you, you've got just funny conversations, you've had funny interactions." People would see me, and I didn't mention this before, but eventually after the optic neuritis, eventually I lost feeling on my left side and now I walk with a cane and two leg braces. And I've had people just approach me, like I'm some sort of former athlete and then they'd be like, "Oh, was it soccer?" They just made up sports and they're strangers, I started telling people it was a Quidditch injury.   Geoff Allix (08:45): Well Quidditch is very dangerous. I mean, the altitude and...   Shari Short (10:48): Well, yeah, this is my little PSA. Yeah, so Quidditch causes MS, so yeah. I had a lot of time to not only see how I was using my humor to cope, but also to just see humor in situations. I was watching it unfold and gave myself the project of putting together a one woman show. And in doing so, in writing and in taking every Sunday to just sit and write and write, it was really, it was a deep dive into my own perspective. And from there I did the show, but I also then put together presentations and different types of creative outlets and tools for coping, that could hopefully help other people. Because this is not a mindset that just comes easily to a lot of people.   Geoff Allix (11:39): You've produced a lot of content, which you've touched on there, and it is mentioned in the show notes, so do have a look, there's links to a lot of that content. Some of the things are shows, like On My Nerves, as well as a satirical piece for Momentum, the National MS Society magazine in the States. Presentations at the University of Pennsylvania, various podcast appearances, including this one. Could you tell us if there's any of those experiences that stand out for you?   Shari Short (12:11): The one-woman show was phenomenal, and it was called On My Nerves, but the working title for me was, It's My Mother's MS, I Just Have It, because I had so many stories about how mom was dealing with my diagnosis or dealing with my disease, as opposed to me. And then that dovetailed into how everybody else was dealing with my situation, and the stories that I had on that. To have so many people come out and see that, and then be asked, "Do you want to do this for fringe festivals and stuff like that?" And to have to say, "Actually, no, I can't, that took all the energy I have." It was amazing, I'm glad I had it taped, I'm glad I have my binder. I could do it again, but I couldn't do it on a show basis.   To have a night at the theater where 140 people came out and it was sold out, was a really wonderful way to honor how I've used the humor. And also I got just emails and responses from people with other chronic illnesses, and a lot of people with more silent, hidden chronic illness that were like, "Thank you for that, because you just touched on stuff that no one's talking about, and you did it in a way that was safe." And I just realized that the humor can help people and it's not just helping me. Yeah, and then just the Crazy Cane Lady letter series that I started a couple of years ago was just a little creative advocacy project for me, where I would just write letters, fake letters, very real feelings, but fake letters to different entities, like hotels or restaurants, or back to school night, or Broadway theaters, about how they could be more accommodating to people like me.   I definitely honed in on the cane part of my existence because I see that there are tremendous accommodations, and we could still improve for people in wheelchairs, but the cane, it gets a little middle child treatment sometimes. And there's a ramp that it'll take me a year to get up the ramp on the cane when I could just go up the steps and then be there. So I just feel like there's a lot to learn and people have a lot to learn in terms of event planning and in terms of accommodating people with canes. I did this series of letters during MS Week here in the States, it was in March a couple of years ago. And I made those public, and that took off really nicely. People responded really well to that, and I need to write more of them. I was going to do it again the following year, but the following year was COVID and I just felt like we all had bigger fish to fry than if I can find a bench near a movie theater, right? So I didn't continue with that. I did a video series, like an Oscars version of just thanking different entities within the MS community that have helped me cope. I feel like if I can't perform it or if I can't write it and put it out there in a satirical way, I'm not processing. I don't do the serious stuff and process; it has to be creative for me to feel like it's healing.   Geoff Allix (15:37): You've mentioned that humor's helped you deal with situations you've had and help with your physical abilities and not take yourself too seriously, so how transferable are those benefits to the broader MS community? And how would you advise people to try to tap into that relationship you have with humor?   Shari Short (16:03): Yeah, no, that's a great question. I think that it comes down to the lens that you're seeing life through and the lens that you're seeing your mobility issues through, or whatever it is that MS has affected for you. And the lens I used to see my slow gait and my balance issues, I used to just... Well, I went from being a runner to the negative and it was, "Oh, great. This is what I get, and this isn't fair." And all of those very, very normal feelings, to, "All right, I'm going to rock a cane." Or "All right, with these assistant orthotic devices, they make me look like a Jedi." Or not, they made me look like a storm trooper actually, because they were white.   I also, I have to say I had a small child during this time, so I really felt the need to be creative about what was happening to mommy, because he saw me go from a runner to, I can't walk well, and that kind of pushed me along. There might be something for other people, when they consider, "Well, am I looking through it in the glass half full lens, or am I looking through it in the glass half empty? And what lens am I looking at it through? And are there things that I think are funny that, if I tell people I think they're funny, they're going to judge me?" And I'm here to say, embrace all of it. It's your lens, you're seeing it through. I did a lot of acceptance of dark humor. I did a lot of acceptance of the fact that humor is a language and some people will be put off if you're joking about your condition. And some people will feel like, "Oh, okay, good [inaudible 00:17:53]."   Geoff Allix (17:53): How do you deal with that discomfort if people are not comfortable with you talking in a humorous way about something as serious as MS?   Shari Short (18:03): Sure. Well, it's always know your audience, right? If I'm talking to other people who have MS, to the best of my ability I gauge where they are, like that talk I gave at Penn here in the States, they knew they were logging on to see a comedian, they knew what they were getting, so I wasn't too scared to read the Crazy Cane Lady letters or whatever. But I mean, to this day... look, last week I dealt with COVID and I knew I had COVID not because of a cold or a cough, but because I collapsed, and my husband had to pick me up off the floor. It triggered something in the MS and I'm like, "Oh, I've got a virus that my body wants me to know about."   And I could tell people and I get the "Oh." You know, I get the face. And I'm like, "Yeah, but I didn't hurt myself." Or "Yeah, my husband was right there." Or "My COVID's more fun than your COVID." I feel the need to keep going with the story instead of letting it halt and let them know I'm okay. And not everybody can do that, and I get that. And that's why, when I do workshops or anything like that, I get personal and talk about, "Okay, what's in your toolbox? What can you grab onto at that moment that is going to help you get either through telling the story or through what you're doing?" Almost in a cognitive behavioral way, "What's a great image you have in your head to just move you through the situation?"   And that's all just been because that's worked for me, and I know from research that humor is healing and laughing is really good for the body. There have definitely been situations in my life where the instinct is to cry, but I know it I've always felt better if I set the situation up so I could laugh at it.   Geoff Allix (20:10): You've got a principle, I believe, called laughing on purpose, which you've almost touched on there, I think. But could you tell us a bit of more about that?   Shari Short (20:18): Laughing on purpose?   Geoff Allix (20:19): Yes.   Shari Short (20:22): Laughing on purpose, I mean, when I hear that phrase, I mean, I feel like it's making a conscious choice to keep your sense of humor about you when things are challenging. And that looking at things with humor is not a weakness, it's like, if I don't laugh, I'll cry, that phrase that's out there. It's like if you laugh, it's actually going to help the situation a little bit. And it's for you, it's personal for you. It's not like, "Oh, somebody else is suffering, so laugh at them." I'm only talking about when one is dealing with one's own stuff. That would be horrible advice to give to anybody to just laugh at other people's challenges.   Geoff Allix (21:04): I just think all the best humor is when it's the comedian laughing at themselves, I think that's the funniest humor, isn't it?   Shari Short (21:10): Of course. Yeah, and I felt like sometimes I had to be jostled into it, I had to be jostled back. And I had this wonderful story in the show whereby I got that handicap tag and I was sad about it. And my boss at the time was like, "Well, can I borrow it? I have Springsteen tickets, and I would love to use your handicap tag." Here I was feeling really bad for myself, and then people were like, "You've got the golden ticket." I have this motto or whatever, or this creed or this way of looking at things, like if I don't try to find the humor in this, then I haven't really processed it, like I mentioned before. And it's not a pressure, it's just how can I help myself?   Occasionally they'll be like, "Oh no, no, no, it's not working yet. It's not working yet." And in my toolbox, I have things that make me laugh. I have old Blackadder episodes, I have the best of Bits of Fry and Laurie, I have comedians like David Mitchell and things on the BBC that make me laugh, or American comedians like Kathleen Madigan. And I just go there, I'm like, "They're going to make me laugh and it's going to reset me." The things that are dark, the things that I've had to deal with with MS, the intimate, discreet ways in which the central nervous system wreaks havoc, MS wreaks havoc on it, I don't want to share with everybody, but I've become a little bit more like, "I've got to advocate for me or no one else will."   So if we're all going into a restaurant, I'm like, "Excuse me, but the seat near the bathroom. Yeah, that would be me. That is mine." Right? Yeah. And it's just like, I'm 51 years old, people might think, "Oh, oh, women do that." No, no, no, it is totally because of the MS. But I've just grown a little bit more comfortable with the uncomfortable because I communicate with my humor. And when you have MS, I mean, everybody's got it differently, but there's uncomfortable things about it.   Geoff Allix (23:33): Sense of humor can apply to many things in MS. It can be coping tool, teaching tool, defense mechanism, so just for general member of the public who's got MS, how can they harness humor to make a positive benefit to themselves?   Shari Short (23:55): I think, first of all, you have to ask how you're processing any aspect of where you are in your patient journey, is the term that's used most often. How are you processing? Are you talking about it a lot? Are you thinking about it a lot? Are you down on yourself because of it? Or are you trying to give yourself pep talks? Are you worried about the future? Where are you with it? And then ask yourself in that processing, "Okay, what kind of lens should I look at this through so it's going to help me move forward?"   The toolbox is something I come back to a lot. What makes you laugh, as you, your own person with MS, what makes you laugh is not what makes me laugh, is not what makes everybody else laugh, it's you. So write it down, actually acknowledge your sense of humor. What makes you laugh? And start to collect those things, whether it's books or whether it's links on the internet, whether it's the cat video or the guy who says, "I'm not a cat," to the lawyer, you know those things that went viral last year. There are things that can immediately make you laugh so just be more aware of them because they're tools for you to reset. And I use humor to communicate, not everybody does. You may find in your dealing with MS, that you've got two friends that will get your dark humor, that will get your jokes, or will support you on that, then they're part of your toolbox too.   I've found that I've had, like we talked about earlier, there's people that get uncomfortable or they make faces and I don't stop too long in their party. I just go, "Okay, yeah, yeah, no, I know it sucks." I can't take care of anybody else but me, so I think that's really important, is to just look where you are, what lens are you looking at it through? Where can you find, is there humor in this situation? Do you want to write about it? Do you want to tell a good close friend about it? Do you want to tell your doctor about it? But collect those things, because at other times it's going to make you laugh when no one else knows what you're thinking, and it's going to be part of your own collection of stories that you can go back to and say, "This is how I dealt. This is how I helped myself."

Aubierge Togan, Zogbodomey, Bénin. Animatrice-en-chef au sein de l'ONG Cerpadec, elle propose des séances d'éducation nutritionnelle aux parents pour leurs nourrissons et leurs enfants. Un épisode du podcast « Carnet de santé » lui est consacré. À 31 ans, Aubierge est déjà animatrice-en-chef au sein de l'ONG béninoise Cerpadec, à Zogbodomey, dans le sud du Bénin. Son combat : lutter contre la malnutrition des enfants. Comme les dix autres animatrices qu'elle supervise, Aubierge se rend très souvent en communauté, dans les villages, afin d'encourager les parents à composer des repas équilibrés pour leurs enfants. Toujours accueillie par des chansons et des danses, elle veut inverser les tendances car au Bénin, selon une enquête nationale de 2018, seulement 28 % des enfants âgés de 6 mois à 2 ans reçoivent une alimentation diversifiée.  Aubierge est fière de ce qu'elle fait : « Quand je vois un enfant qui était vraiment faible, vulnérable, et qui est maintenant en pleine forme grâce à mes conseils, ça me fait vraiment plaisir. Il n'y a pas de meilleure récompense que de voir ça tous les jours. » Charlie Dupiot l'a accompagnée lors d'une séance d'éducation nutritionnelle dans le village d'Agrimé, près de Zogbodomey.

Welcome to Living Well with MS Coffee Break #32, where we are pleased to welcome Regina Beach as our guest!   Our Coffee Break series is your chance to get to know members of our diverse OMS community. In each episode, you'll join Geoff Allix for an intimate chat with a different member of our global community. Our guests will share their personal stories and talk about their challenges and victories, large and small. We hope you find common cause and a source of inspiration from the stories of these very special people.   As always, your comments and suggestions are always welcome by emailing podcast@overcomingms.org. Regina is a very special guest for many reasons, including being an American living in the UK, and being an OMSer who works for the charity as its Trusts and Community Fundraising Manager. We hope you enjoy this episode's conversation with Regina, coming to you straight from the UK.   Regina's Bio:   Regina Beach is an American living in the Welsh Valleys with her British husband. She was diagnosed with RRMS in April 2021 and adopted the Overcoming MS program shortly thereafter. She is a yoga teacher and writer who regularly leads workshops and publishes poetry and essays.  She enjoys cooking and is writing an oil-free vegan cookbook with her husband. She also works part time as the Trusts and Community Fundraising Manager for Overcoming MS. Prior to diagnosis she was an avid long-distance cycler. Her goal is to feel strong enough and balanced enough to get back in the saddle.     Questions:   Regina, welcome to Living Well with MS Coffee Break. We're so pleased to have you on our program. The purpose of this series is to better get to know some of the diverse members of our community from around the world, and today you're in the hot seat. Can you tell us a little about your day-to-day life? When were you diagnosed with MS? Can you provide some context on that? When were you diagnosed and how did you initially deal with it? At which point did you come across the OMS program? How was that experience for you? Why did you decide to start following it? I understand that you're rated as having significant disability on the EDSS scale. Has the OMS Program helped alleviate this, or had no effect? What are your thoughts on people with MS choosing other types of diets or lifestyle protocols that are not OMS? Let's shift gears a little bit and talk about your professional life. You used to be a schoolteacher in the US, but now you live in the UK with your British husband, and you actually work part-time for OMS as its Trusts and Community Fundraising Manager. How did that transition come about? OMS is celebrating its 10th birthday this year, and there are some special events in the wings. I understand you're involved in some of these, such as OMS Birthday Trivia in June, and the Big Picnic in July. Can you tell us a little about what to expect? Since you work in fundraising, what advice would you give to people in our community who want to get involved in this domain to help the charity? My next question straddles the personal and professional realm: you're a devout yoga and meditation practitioner, and you also teach it. Can you tell us how that's helped you, and share some tips on how others can get into the groove of a daily mindfulness practice? Regina, thank you so much for being on Living Well with MS Coffee Break and allowing our community to get to know one of its own a little better. One last question before you go, and it's a bit of a tradition in that we ask it of all our Coffee Break guests. If you tap into your experience with MS generally and OMS specifically for a nugget of wisdom that would help people ease into and better adopt the OMS program, what would that advice be?   Three Interesting Facts About Regina (in her own words):   I'm a yoga teacher and have changed my practice to be gentler and exploratory. I used to teach hot 26+2 (Bikram style).  I used to be a public-school teacher in Chicago where I taught secondary art and design. I have significant disability, with my neurologist most recently rating my EDSS at 6.5. I have incomplete remission, so my symptoms are always with me.     Regina's Links:   Check out Regina on Instagram, all about her adventures with whole food plant-based eating. Read Regina's newsletter, all about creativity through movement, art, and whole food plant-based cooking.

Regina is an American living in the Welsh Valleys with her British husband. She was diagnosed with Relapse-Remitting MS in April 2021 and adopted the Overcoming MS program shortly thereafter. She's a yoga teacher and writer who regularly leads workshops and publishes poetry and essays. She enjoys cooking and is writing an oil-free vegan cookbook with her husband. She also works part-time as the Trusts and Community Fundraising Manager for Overcoming MS. Prior to diagnosis, she was an avid long-distance cycler.

So the purpose of this series is to get a better understanding of the members of our community from around the world, and today you are in the hot seat. So, could you tell us a bit about your day-to-day life?   Regina Beach (02:12): Sure. Thanks, Geoff, for having me. I am American, but I do live in the UK. So, my day-to-day life takes place in South Wales where I am a writer, a yoga teacher, and I also work part-time for Overcoming MS as the Trusts and Community Fundraising Manager, which means I help people who want to do a charity bike ride, or a race, or if they want to sell something, or raise funds for OMS. I help in whatever way, sending out swag, helping promote and advertise, and working with some really cool OMSers doing amazing things.   In terms of my day-to-day, I was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting MS in April of 2021, so not that long ago, and so I am still in the middle of figuring out what works best for me and how to fully embrace the OMS lifestyle. I jumped in right away about a month after diagnosis, I found the website, devoured it, and soon after got the book, read it, joined the Facebook group. I really feel like this is the pathway back to health, or to living as well as I possibly can, for me.   Geoff Allix (03:40): So how was it being diagnosed mid-COVID pandemic? I'm guessing that's made a difference.   Regina Beach (03:50): Yeah, absolutely, because I really put off getting the tingles in my feet checked out for a long time. I wasn't really in pain; I wasn't really having mobility issues. I was just having lots of numbness in my feet. And since I had been extra active in 2019, I did miles of swimming, biking, and running, I thought I was just experiencing some overuse residual something. And I really put it off and put it off, and it wasn't until my acupuncturist was like, "Your cold tingly feet, really, I haven't been able to do anything about this. I really think you should go to your GP and get some blood work done." And I'm really glad that she said that because I think, especially for people who like to tough it out or who are used to doing physical things and maybe having their body have adjust to stuff, I really wasn't thinking that I had something neurologically wrong with me.   And so then, obviously it took a little bit of time to check, I didn't have low B12, I didn't have low iron. My GP thought maybe I had a pinched nerve and just ordered a cervical MRI, and then eventually a full MRI. And then I ended up in the hospital for a week because I was having, I guess, a big relapse where I really had some terrible symptoms, and was losing mobility, and ended up with the diagnosis about a year after I really first started having those tingles. So, I do feel like I'm getting good care now, but I feel like the road to finding that diagnosis and really finding my way was definitely prolonged because of the pandemic.   Geoff Allix (05:38): And I think MS is a difficult one anyway, because it's not like we have a key symptom. Most things you can say, "Yeah, that's likely to be that because you've got this key symptom." We're like, "Well, actually it could be anything." Your nerves do everything in your body, and we've got a problem with our nerves, so it could be, people have got eye problems, walking problems, bladder problems, temperature problems, pins and needles problems, and they're all MS. So yeah, it is really difficult.   Regina Beach (06:07): Yeah, exactly, and you don't necessarily think of, "Oh, I need to pee all the time," as being connected to this idea that the grip in my left hand is not as strong as it used to be. You don't make that connection naturally, I think, because MS symptoms can run the gamut.   Geoff Allix (06:25): So, when did you come across OMS? How did you find out about OMS? And how did that go for you?   Regina Beach (06:33): My whole life, I have said, "If I ever get really sick," kind of jokingly, "I'm just going to become a monk and be a vegan and live in the woods." And so obviously, one of the first things I Googled was, what's the best diet for MS, because I understand that what we put into our body is the molecules that we become. And so I thought, okay, someone has got to have been doing research on this, and so I came across Swank, and then came across Jelinek, and then the evidence was just so compelling to me. I spent a month researching recipes, getting rid of stuff in the fridge, overhauling things.   My husband's been really wonderful and has changed his diet too, so we cook together. We're writing down our recipes and compiling a cookbook. We have an Instagram where we post recipes. It's been really fun, and it's been a huge change because I used to really love cheese and dairy, and my husband used to be big into smoking meats and grilling meats, and so we've just done a 180 with our meals, and it's really helpful to have somebody to co-plan with and cook with.   Like last night, we had some smoked fish and veg, and it's actually really amazing what you can do, cooking without oil, that I had no idea was possible. So I'm actually really happy that we found this. He's a triathlete and has found a lot of benefits from the diet portion of Overcoming MS as well, and I've always been a meditator of sorts, but now I feel like it's really key, and I definitely carve out the time more than I used to for that component.   And yeah, I do take a DMT, and I'm hopeful that with everything together, I'll get some more mobility back because I walk currently with two sticks, and I'm really hoping to one day be able to walk without a mobility aid.   Geoff Allix (08:42): Yeah. That was the next thing I was going to ask actually, so you are listed as having significant disability on the EDSS scale. So what's two sticks? That's somewhere up like four and a half, five, or something on the scale?   Regina Beach (08:55): Yeah, so I don't leave the house without at least one stick and it really just depends on how my balance is feeling that day. And sometimes, if we're at a museum or if I'm out and about in a big public arena, I've used a wheelchair before, just because walking long distances is really tough for me. And that was really heartbreaking because it was something that, hiking and long-distance trekking are things that have been a really important part of my life up to this point. I did the Camino de Santiago, and I've done a lot of long-distance cycle trips across Europe and Asia and North America, and I feel really lucky that I was able to do those things. But yeah, so being in this new body of mine that doesn't function the same way, and is really slow, and I have foot drop on the left side, and it's really a big adjustment, and I don't think I'm totally there. I dream of running sometimes, or I dream that I can walk.   Geoff Allix (10:08): Literally in your dreams?   Regina Beach (10:09): Literally in my dreams.   Geoff Allix (10:10): I have that as well. Some people say, "Does that make you sad because you've lost it?" And it's actually no, when you half wake up and you're just coming out of a dream, if I'm getting back to sleep, I'm just like, "I'd love to get back into that dream again," the one where I'm running around.   Regina Beach (10:25): Yes.   Geoff Allix (10:26): Because it's like memories of what used to be, and very similar stuff I used to do, like do a lot of mountain walking and hiking and cycling and stuff. The things now that I think would be an amazing achievement, whereas before it would be climbing Mont Blanc or something, now it's like, something less daunting. I mean, if I can do something like Snowden, or something that's not a hard mountain, that would be such an achievement for me. I mean, I don't know if it's achievable because I'm not really, I'm similar to you, I always take a stick when I go out, but I'm not ruling out that I can get a bit better.   Regina Beach (11:04): That's how I feel.   Geoff Allix (11:06): There are people I've come across, who like me, think those aids, they're not disabling, they're enabling. So, using mobility aids, and certainly, yeah, so I've got an E-Trike that I use partly also as a mobility scooter sometimes because I can just put it a walk mode and just trundle along. Because I just, yeah, the distance is the problem really, whereas I'd love to go on a city break where I just wander around all day. But now I-   Regina Beach (11:39): I love that, yes, where you're just walking miles and miles and seeing all the things, and now you have to be a little more deliberate about where you're going to go, how long is it going to take, and where can you take a rest? But it doesn't mean you can't do it. So I was really nervous to take my first international trip since having mobility issues, but my husband and I went to Egypt over Christmas and New Year's, and it was amazing how much we were able to do and how accommodating people are when you just explain the situation, and how much people want to help and make things as easy as possible. So, we did a snorkeling trip and everyone on the boat was super helpful because that is, as someone who has balance issues, it's a nightmare to walk around on a boat.   Geoff Allix (12:27): Yeah. Well I've been scuba diving twice since I've had MS.   Regina Beach (12:27): Nice.   Geoff Allix (12:33): Yeah, I've been scuba diving in Costa Rica and in Thailand, because I used to scuba dive a lot, but actually I thought, well, why not? Because there's not a balance issue.   Regina Beach (12:33): Yeah. Once you're in the water, it's great.   Geoff Allix (12:44): Yeah. And actually when you're scuba diving, you don't really, really, it's not a lot of exertion, because otherwise you use up all your air basically. So you are trying to do everything in a very gentle motion, so I still have the skills, and yeah, the problem is getting on and off the boat. On the boat, because it's moving around, there's loads of stuff to hold onto because everyone's got to hold onto stuff, so actually it wasn't that bad. So yeah, I could do that, and that was really cool.   Regina Beach (13:11): Yeah, and it is just about finding what you can do and leaning into what you can do, and making new goals, like you said. There's a little lake, we live right near the Cwmcarn Forest Drive, and one of my goals is to make it around that whole little lake without taking a break. And that is a very small goal compared to maybe what I used to be doing, but that's fine, that's where I'm at right now, and I'd rather be getting out there and trying for that. And also I just really appreciate my good days because, obviously, I used to take walking and running for granted, and now I'm like, "Oh, I feel great today. I'm definitely going to go out for a walk or for a little hike." So there's the small joys.   Geoff Allix (13:58): Yeah. And the next question is, what are your thoughts on people with MS choosing other types of diets or lifestyle alternative to OMS?   Regina Beach (14:11): Yeah, so this is really interesting. Since being diagnosed and disclosing my diagnosis, I've had a lot of people say, "Oh I have MS too," or "I have another autoimmune condition," which I think is really interesting, how much you don't know about your acquaintances. I feel like disclosing brought me really close to some people who I had no idea also had things that they were dealing with. But I also think that it's a really personal decision about how you're going to self-manage your condition, and so I've definitely had to be firm, but kind, in my approach saying, "I'm sticking with OMS. This is what I want to do. If you want to do paleo, you want to do another diet, that's fine."   I think it really comes down to how you feel and what you can stick with. And so anybody who is managing through lifestyle, I think deserves big kudos. Anyone who's making these big changes in their lives, whether it's adding exercise or mindfulness, or taking supplements, or whatever it is. I think we're not really at odds with most of the other diets, they are mostly whole food based, they are mostly much healthier than the standard Western diet, and I think that you want to be encouraging, this idea that we have autonomy to make changes that aren't just dictated from a neurologist or a GP, that we can do something for ourselves.   Geoff Allix (15:46): Yeah, and I've spoken to people on different protocols, Mathew Embry, Best Bet Diet, talked to him, and the commonality is greater than the differences.   Regina Beach (16:00): Much more.   Geoff Allix (16:01): And with the Wahls protocol similarly, basically they're all non-dairy, they're all low saturated fat, they're all whole food based. Now it may be that you have organic grass fed, lean meat occasionally on the Best Bet Diet. It may be that you have, gluten is okay on OMS, which is not on others. So there's little bits on the edges, but the core bits are really the same, low saturated fat, whole food diet with no dairy, is basically common across all of them. And I think-   Regina Beach (16:39): Yeah, and even Swank had low fat meat after year one on his original diet, which the OMS diet is built on, so there is so much that is in that same vein.   Geoff Allix (16:53): Yeah. I think some people, as well, because there's a lot of stuff with fasting now as well, and I think there's a lot of interest in fasting. And the paleo diet, if you cut out all your carbs, then you put your body into a fasting state, but when you talk to the neurologist about this, when you are proposing this, they're saying, "Oh yeah, we're not actually encouraging you to just go on an Atkins diet because that would put you into a fasting state, but that's not actually healthy. What you want to be doing is going to fasting state by reducing the time window you eat, or not eating for a day, a week," these different ways of doing it, and then eating a healthy lifestyle. So there's sort of like-   Regina Beach (17:35): Yes, and not just putting yourself into ketosis for the sake of it by not consuming carbs, which are really in everything, and as long as you're eating whole grains, is very, very healthy. That's what so many cultures and indigenous people's whole diets are based on, potatoes, or rice, or other grains. And I think cutting them out is, like you're saying, it's not healthy for the long haul.   Geoff Allix (18:06): So, to change a little bit and talk about your professional life, you were a schoolteacher in the US, moved to the UK and live with your British husband, and now work part-time for OMS as the Trusts and Community Fundraising Manager, as you mentioned. So how did that transition come about?   Regina Beach (18:27): Oh my gosh, I feel that life in Chicago, when I was teaching in public schools there, is a lifetime ago. I was really burnt out, it's a really tough job. I really give a lot of praise to all of the schoolteachers out there, especially in these strange times. But I was really at a point in my career where I was turning into the type of teacher I didn't want to be and needed to pivot, and so I decided to take a year to do a Fulbright Fellowship in Laos in Southeast Asia, and that was my last full year of teaching. I taught teacher candidates there, and that's actually where I met my now husband, who was on a motorcycle adventure through Southeast Asia, and came back to visit me a couple times.   And so, through that process, I was really thinking, okay, what is it that I really like? What is it that I really want to do? I did yoga teacher training. I became a lot more interested in mindfulness and moving meditation, and pivoted back to my first love, which was writing. I studied journalism in university, and really decided, okay, I want to pursue writing. And so some of my work with Overcoming MS is grant writing, and blog writing, and press releases, and I also write essays and poetry in my own time. And so, I'm just trying to carve out a life that's more reflective of my values and what I really enjoy and what I want to spend my time doing. And I was kind of already in that mode when I was diagnosed, but since diagnosis, it's been even more acute that, the time I have, I want to spend it focusing on the things that I really enjoy, and the things where I feel like I can make a big difference.   Geoff Allix (20:31): So OMS is celebrating its 10th birthday this year, and you've got some special events upcoming, there's various OMS birthday trivia, OMS big picnics, and other events. So could you tell us a bit about the events upcoming?   Regina Beach (20:45): Yeah, so we're really excited to celebrate a decade of the charity promoting the OMS program for people worldwide. And so, yes, the big picnic is a great way to get family, friends, your OMS Circle, involved in some outdoor fun, a barbecue, maybe, bringing OMS compliant foods, teaching people about what the diet pillar is about and why, and possibly even doing some fundraising for the charity. And we are going to do a big birthday quiz on Zoom this year, so that will be really fun, having people answer questions both about the program and also just fun trivia stuff.   And so, this year is really important because 10 years ago, Linda Bloom decided that the OMS program needed a cheerleader. I feel the organization is a mouthpiece to help deliver the content and help people who have MS understand that there are thousands of us who are living better because we're self-managing through the program. So, yeah, if you would like to get involved, email fundraising@overcomingms.org. We're really excited to celebrate. We're celebrating the launch of the new brand, we're celebrating what we're moving towards in the future, and hopefully it will be another 10 years of growth and expansion, and yeah, great food and great fun.   Geoff Allix (22:28): So my next question straddles personal and professional, so you're a devout yoga and meditation practitioner, which you also teach, so could you tell us a bit about how that's helped you? How that yoga and meditation side of things has helped you, and share some tips to others about how they could get into a daily meditation practice?   Regina Beach (22:50): Yeah, for sure, so I used to teach a very yang, very physical style of yoga, the 26+2 Bikram series, which is done in a 40-degree Celsius hot room, which I can't do anymore because heat really exacerbates my symptoms, and a lot of the standing series involves so much balance that it is just out of reach for me right now. So I really have had to adjust my practice and my teaching from this really intense [inaudible 00:23:24] to a much gentler, more yin, more long hold, more floor-based yoga.   And so that was really tough for me at first, because obviously this is something I've been doing, I took my first yoga class when I was in university, I was 18 years old, it's been with me for a long time. I'm trying to see it as, I have all of these years of experience, but now I have a beginner's body where I can't necessarily do all of the things that I used to do, and I'm now reteaching myself.   And so, coming at it from that perspective, I feel has been really helpful because it's just being curious about, what can I do today? Being curious about, how does my body feel today? And leaning into that, and saying, "Okay, this is how I feel. This is what I can do. This is how much I can do." And just letting the rest go, and that's where the mindfulness and meditation come in because we cannot force ourselves to do something that we're not able to, and that doesn't necessarily have to lead to frustration. I think that piece is so crucial, when you are able to accept where you are at today, then everything just floats a little better and we're a little more at ease.   I think you can do meditation no matter what you're doing, whether you're doing yoga, whether you're just sitting mindfully, whether you're drinking tea mindfully, whether you're just taking a nice walk and observing the birds and the trees. I think all of that is just, what can I do? Where am I now? How am I feeling in my body? All of that is mindfulness.   And I'm just appreciating where I'm at, and what I can do, and moving towards little goals to improve my balance, to improve my flexibility, and not necessarily treating my old body as the goal, because I might not be able to do all of those yoga asanas in the future, and that's fine, that doesn't mean I can't deepen my practice. And for a while I was thinking, well, does this make me a terrible yoga teacher if I can't do all of these poses? And I've come to the realization that people don't actually care if their yoga teacher can do fancy arm balances, what they care about is if their yoga teacher can meet them where they're at, and help them find comfort and ease, and a little bit of stretch and relaxation in their own body. And so that's also been just a new version of my yoga practice and my yoga teaching.   Geoff Allix (26:03): Yeah. I mean, Usain Bolt's coach is not a world record runner, so you can teach without being at that level, can't you?   Regina Beach (26:13): Exactly.   Geoff Allix (26:14): So, thank you so much for joining us on the Living Well with MS Coffee Break, and allowing the community to get to know you a bit better. So there's one last question that we have that we tend to always ask people, which is, if you could tap into your experience with MS generally, and OMS specifically, for a nugget of wisdom to help people, particularly if they're new to the OMS program, what would that be?   Regina Beach (26:39): I think, really planning out who you'll tell, and how, and what you need from those people you tell is really important because, for as strong as we all are, you need a community behind you. So whether you're going to lean on your OMS Circle, or your family, or your friends, I think having a plan and knowing how you're going to react when someone doubts that what you're doing is helpful. Because I think as a newly diagnosed person, it can be really crushing to hear someone say, "Oh, there's no proof for that," or "Why are you doing that? That's pseudoscience," or whatever the negative, we always remember the negative more than the positive. And so building a community of trusted people, of people who are supporting what you're doing, and having ways to deflect any naysayers, would just go a long way because the mental health aspect of having MS is no joke and it takes a village to keep people moving forward and living well, and taking care of all of these different components of the lifestyle.   But we can do it, and we can do it together, and I think things like the podcast, and the OMS Circles, and all of the wonderful OMSers really do support one another. I think that's the best part of this program, is the community.   Geoff Allix (28:03): Thank you. And thank you very much for joining us, Regina Beach, and thank you for all your work that you do with OMS as well.   Regina Beach (28:11): Thanks, Geoff, it was great to talk to you today.   Geoff Allix (28:13): Thank you for listening to this episode of Living Well with MS Coffee Break.

C'est la crainte de l'Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) face à la propagation en Europe de la variole du singe ces dernières semaines. Il ne s'agit pas de la variole, déclarée éradiquée par l'OMS en 1980, après 100 ans de campagnes de vaccination. Cette maladie, aussi appelée « orthopoxvirose simienne », ou « monkeypox » en anglais, a été identifiée pour la première fois en RDC (ex-Zaïre). Elle est considérée comme rare et est connue chez l'être humain depuis 1970. Si elle est proche de la variole, elle est toutefois à ce jour considérée comme beaucoup moins grave et moins contagieuse. Mais l'apparition de clusters dans plusieurs pays non endémiques, c'est-à-dire où la maladie ne circule normalement pas, et ce sans lien direct avec des voyages en zone endémique est « atypique », selon l'OMS. À ce jour, dans le monde, plus de 200 infections, réparties sur 19 pays, sont actuellement recensées, selon le point fait hier par Santé Publique France. Dans l'hexagone, 7 cas confirmés de Monkeypox ont été rapportés dont 4 en Ile-de-France, 1 en Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, 1 en Occitanie et 1 cas en Normandie. Mais l'OMS a prévenu hier que ces 200 cas déjà détectés ces dernières semaines pourraient n'être que « le sommet de l'iceberg ». Le président Joe Biden a averti dimanche dernier que l'impact de la variole du singe, dont plusieurs cas ont été récemment détectés en Europe, pourrait être "conséquent". Dans le monde, plusieurs cas ont déjà nécessité une hospitalisation De manière générale, le taux de létalité dans les précédentes épidémies de variole du singe est de 1 à 10 %", affirme l'OMS. La surreprésentation des homosexuels parmi les cas confirmés, et les commentaires homophobes apparus sur les réseaux sociaux concernant cette maladie a poussé les organisations médicales à réagir. L'Onusida a ainsi mis en garde contre des dérapages homophobes et racistes, qui pourraient « rapidement miner la lutte contre l'épidémie ». La sphère complotiste n'est pas en reste. Certains voyant dans l'apparition de ces clusters la conséquence des campagnes de vaccinations contre le Covid-19. Le Covid lui, est loin d'avoir disparu. En Chine, face au regain de l'épidémie depuis quelques mois, une grande partie des 25 millions d'habitants de la ville de Shanghai, la plus peuplée du pays, sont contraints de rester chez eux. Avec la forte diminution du nombre de cas positifs ces dernières semaines, plusieurs restrictions ont déjà été levées. Certains élèves vont ainsi progressivement pouvoir retourner étudier dans leurs établissements scolaires à partir du mois de juin. De nouveaux sous-variants d'Omicron, BA.4 et BA.5, sont également apparus en Afrique du Sud en janvier et février derniers. Ils se sont depuis propagés et BA.5 représente désormais les deux tiers des contaminations au Portugal. Sa propagation laisse croire qu'une augmentation rapide des cas se diffuser sur le continent. Problème : il peut aisément passer outre la protection immunitaire induite par une précédente infection et un schéma vaccinal complet et est en mesure de réinfecter des personnes contaminées par le virus dans les mois précédents. Si, en dehors du pays, la présence de ces variants reste, pour l'heure, relativement faible en Europe, les autorités se préparent d'ores et déjà à faire face à un rebond épidémique, en France notamment.

Bio:   Arlene Faulk has had a passion for writing from a young age beginning in the 8th grade when she wrote and published her class newsletter, The Tattler. She earned a BA in Journalism from the University of Iowa, reporting on everything from Led Zeppelin concerts to protests of the Vietnam War. She went on to receive an MA in Speech Communication from the University of Kansas.   At 22 years old, Arlene lost all feeling below her waist. She regained mobility, but it was years before she received an accurate diagnosis of MS. Arlene endured years of undiagnosed chronic pain, concealing her debilitating symptoms while climbing the corporate ladder, where she managed human resource departments in a major airline until her body stopped her.   In her illuminating journey of determination and self-discovery, she explores how practicing Tai Chi and modifying her lifestyle and mindset helped her retake control and move her life in the direction of possibility. She has been teaching Tai Chi for over 20 years in Chicago and Evanston, Illinois.   Questions:   Welcome to the program, Arlene, and thanks so much for joining us on Living Well with MS. Congratulations on the recent release of your book, ‘Walking on Pins and Needles'. It's all about how you discovered how Tai Chi can help people, yourself included, manage chronic pain. We'll get more into that shortly. But before we do, let's dive a little bit into your background… You were diagnosed with MS in your early 20s, and that spiraled into a series of debilitating symptoms and pain. Can you tell us a little bit about those initial experiences coping with your new reality? Despite all of this, you still went on to build a successful career in the corporate world, until your condition forced you to stop. How did you deal with all of this while working in high pressure jobs? When did you discover Tai Chi? And perhaps for our listeners who aren't familiar with it, can you describe what Tai Chi is in layman's terms? How did the practice of Tai Chi help you deal with some of your chronic symptoms? Tai Chi seems to be yet another way to practice mindfulness, which is core to the OMS program. Can you speak about its impact on reducing stress in the body and mind? There's something about our mindsets that compels us to try to control as much as we can, and at the same time letting go seems to be a healthier path. How do you use Tai Chi to make that lane change? When did you transition to teaching Tai Chi, and how did you develop your approach to using it as a tool for managing chronic pain? What sorts of people do you teach? Is your approach effective for a range of conditions, including MS? You've done on to write a book about this, and incidentally, more information about the book and where to purchase it is available in this episode's show notes. How did the book come about? I know this is a bit of an unfair question, but I will ask it anyway… if you can distill your experience with Tai Chi into one core lesson learned that you'd like to impart to our global community of people with MS and their supporters, what would that be? Thanks so much for being our guest on Living Well with MS, Arlene. We are thrilled to learn about the amazing work you're doing to help ease chronic pain through a Tai Chi practice. And I encourage everyone to learn more about it by checking out your book, and you can find all those links and more in our show notes for this episode.

A doença, há muito tempo presente de forma controlada em regiões da África, agora surpreende ao aparecer em pelo menos 17 países - entre eles vários da Europa, EUA, Austrália e Israel. Diante do registro de mais de 200 casos, a OMS emitiu alerta e, no Brasil, o Ministério da Ciência e Tecnologia criou um comitê para acompanhar a situação. Umas de suas integrantes, a microbióloga Giliane Trindade, conversa com Renata Lo Prete para explicar que o vírus causador é, felizmente, muito menos letal do que aquele responsável pela outra varíola, erradicada em 1980 depois de causar 300 milhões de mortes ao longo do século 20. A atual se chama “dos macacos” porque neles foi primeiro identificada, esclarece a pesquisadora da Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais. Giliane também conta quais são os medicamentos e vacinas existentes no mundo para tratar a doença, cujo traço mais visível são lesões de pele que depois secam. Outro motivo para alívio, diz ela, é que, “diferentemente do Sars-Cov-2, esse vírus não tem transmissão facilitada”.
