A Path to Recovery: Daryl Bryant

I was sent this letter by someone who has found another path to recovery from many of the symptoms of MS, one that does not depend solely on prescription drugs or CCSVI treatment.  I have not read his book, yet, so can't vouch for what's in it, but thought people would like to know about it.  If anyone has read it, perhaps you can send me a review.

Dear Ted,

My diagnosis with MS has led me down a bumpy and winding road that I am proud to say has finally brought me to where I am today, a happy and fulfilled man.

Outsiders would probably never be able to guess that at my lowest point with the disease, I actually lost the ability to walk. And now I find myself running at full speed, managing my own business and building a life with my wonderful wife and newborn.

I want people to know that they can once again regain control of their lives the way I did. But it is going to be a fight. Those suffering from the disease or have loved ones with multiple sclerosis understand the lows and the obstacles.

My story is here to give hope. My life was literally turned upside down and once I worked past my denial, I found my way. No two cases of MS are alike, it is up to each individual to listen to their bodies and find the regimen that brings the greatest success.

A combination of dietary and exercise changes along with holistic and pharmaceutical medication—this is the formula for my triumph. Dedication to proactive positivity is what helped me find my way.

At my darkest moments with MS I was extremely depressed and suicidal. I have never been prone to those tendencies prior to my diagnosis. I was an athlete throughout my life and when I learned I had MS, the rug was literally pulled out from under me.

It is my hope that my story will offer you inspiration and remind you that there are others out there battling this disease and winning.

This is why I published my book MS Book - MS Living Symptom Free, because I can proudly say that I won. And you can beat it too. I divulge into what has helped me and other options for MS patients.

Each chapter explains healthy diet options, exercises specific for strengthening where we are weakest and medication. I share my story while trying to touch on all the important parts of recovery.

Thank you Ted for listening and helping me share my story. And I can’t explain how grateful I am for your blog and support!

If any of your readers would like to know more about my book it can be found here: MS Book - MS Living Symptom Free.

Wishing everyone the best of luck in their MS journey!

  1. Thanks for posting again Ted!

    Just to clarify though, I do use prescription drugs but I am a large advocate of not depending on them solely for treatment. There is a portion of my book where I discuss FDA-Approved Disease-Modifying Agents like Avonex.

    Hope my book can help others out there!

  2. Thanks for clarifying that for us, Daryl.
