Best Tools and Products to help MS


Living a life with MS sometimes means needing assistance. Which isn’t a bad thing at all, we should be aiming to make our lives as easy as possible. 

But what are the most helpful assistance devices? 

Here are a few that I find useful! 

Stainless Steel Water Bottle

Having access to ice cold water when it’s hot out is a must! It’s one of the fastest ways to cool our bodies down. A regular water bottle gets warm pretty fast, but a stainless steel water bottle helps to keep it cold for hours. 

Swell and Hydroflask are great brands! 

Toe/Hand Warmers 

Idk about you, but my hands and feet are always cold. Even right now as I type this, even though it’s 80 degrees outside, my hands and feet are a tad chilly. You can only imagine what it’s like in winter! That’s why toe and hand warmers are essential! 

Earbuds 

A symptom of MS is often feeling overloaded in social situations or loud environments. I know I’ve felt overwhelmed in a loud room, anyone else? 

Earbuds are an amazing way of removing yourself, without actually having to leave. I’ve been able to put calming music on and totally ignore my surroundings. 

Sound machine 

Sleep can be tricky for MSers. Unfortunately many of us don’t sleep that well. I’ve tried many things but I’ve found that having a white noise in the background is actually really helpful. I often use a fan or my AC for this, but a sound machine works great as well! 

Body Pillow

Using a body pillow has dramatically increased my sleep quality. I’m a side sleeper by nature, so a few years ago when it got rather uncomfy, a body pillow changed everything. It puts you into better alignment, which means less pain. 

Squatty potty

One of the most common MS symptoms is bladder or bowel issues and constipation is often a result. Using a squatty potty will put our bodies in optimal position for a bowel movement, so it’s easier and more natural to go. 

Travel John 

Now this might be the best invention I’ve seen! If you struggle with bladder issues, you’re no stranger to the dreaded “DO YOU HAVE A BATHROOM??” Sometimes the answer is a welcome yes, sometimes its a dreaded no. If you have the Travel John, the answer won’t matter! Obviously you need privacy to use it, but it could be a life saver. 

Shower chair 

Sometimes you just need to sit down, including in the shower. Having a sturdy shower chair might make it so much more comfortable for you! 

 MS might be hard to manage at times, but that doesn’t mean it has to be impossible! Utilize any and all tools you need to!

I’M ALISSA!

I help women who have also been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis make specific and personalized diet, lifestyle & subconscious changes so that they can begin to heal their body, reduce disease symptoms, and return to a life they love.hey there,

follow along on Instagram:

This is how I slowly helped myself the most:
Making small changes to my life,
* Intentional awareness to my morning
* Noticing when I’m being mean to myself 
* Noticing when I’m reactive or in a state of fight or flight..

Some “small” ideas for you too:
* don’t grab your phone first thing in the morning, take some deep breaths, think about how you want your day to go
* drink an extra glass of water (bonus if it’s in the morning too)
* get up and move every hour
* say something nice to yourself when you catch yourself being mean
* step outside for a few minutes a few times a day

Small changes add up to big steps forward,
don’t get fooled by these not being “enough”,
they absolutely are. 

Wanna hear more about how Ive helped myself and my clients to lessen our MS symptoms so we feel better in our bodies?

I detail it in my chapter in Resilience Redefined.. comment “Book” and I’ll send you the link!!

You don’t always have to love the hard action you’re taking to reach your goals.

You just have to show up.

You can do this… keep going 🧡🧡

*after discerning there’s no *actual* issue (pain, injury, illness etc) preventing me from working out, only that I’m a toddler and don’t wanna.

Struggling to start with exercise?

Try this tip!!

Creating a new habit (any of them) necessitate us to become someone new, someone different than we were.

Because we’re trying to do something different after all.

This is gentle way of starting that identity shift process.

Become who you want to be in your mind first.

Does this help?
What other habits do you need help with? Let me know in the comments!!

It’s only fitting that I announce my 2nd book (along with 7 other authors) on my 14 year anniversary with MS.

This is a book that I would have loved to read early on in my journey.
It’s about how we moved through our diagnosis and came out the other side for the better.

““Resilience Redefined” is not just a collection of stories; it is a call to action. The authors challenge those living with an autoimmune disease to not only survive but to thrive”

So… drumroll please…
Pre orders are officially open!!

This is obvs one option of many on how to help yourself through these moments.

But when you’re stuck in negative worrying, don’t forget there can be a positive outcome too!

This is rewiring your brain in action.

You notice you’re doing something you always did,
Then do something different.

And boom! A new pathway is born.

It needs some love and attention to grow,
so keep practicing!

There’s so much buzz about everything needing to feel good if it’s right for you.

Sure, there’s a time and a place for alignment.

But, growth often happens in the uncomfortable moments.

Just a reminder.
Keep going.
