Matt Embry Image.3 Episode 4: Interview with Matt Embry

I’m super excited to introduce Matt Embry – founder of MS Hope. I recently had the privilege of chatting to Matt about his MS and the way he has eradicated the illness from his body and life. Food, exercise and supplements have been his treatment and today he can proudly say that he is symptom free. He leads a busy and fulfilled life and starts each day in the gym!

His dynamic and informative website, MS Hope was launched a couple of months ago and is achieving huge attention worldwide. Matt uses four short, but meaty videos to communicate the keys to staying well with MS. He brings this way of living down to earth, making it practical and achievable.

I hope you enjoy listening!

Spinach & Wild Rice Soup

By : | 1 Comment | On : March 24, 2015 | Category : Healing Foods


I am continually amazed at the versatility of spinach. I eat it in salads, throw huge handfuls in my smoothie and steam it as a side for my salmon. It’s also great in a soup with delicious wild rice! It is one of the most plentiful sources of plant protein which is surprising but true! Does anyone remember good old ‘Popeye the Sailor-man’? He was kinda weedy and skinny in his cartoon but when it came to saving his lady, Olive Oyl, he would pull out the big guns … a tin of spinach! After glugging down the spinach, his muscles would suddenly triple in size and he would be able to knock over the naughty Bluto (who was a lot bigger than Popeye) with one blow! Astonishing.

Even though this is a slight exaggeration, there is definitely some truth to it. Spinach will make your body stronger and healthier – there is no doubt about that! And, it will help you to defeat the Bluto in your life – MS. (more…)

Woman walking alone on the sandy beach

In keeping with our theme of inspiring stories of hope and healing for MS awareness month, I have a treat for you! This past weekend, I had the pleasure and honour of interviewing Canadian filmmaker Judith Morrow.

Judith has recently finished producing a documentary about one courageous woman’s recovery from Secondary Progressive MS. It’s called, ‘The Healing of Heather Garden’. It’s amazing! Heather’s symptoms were dire and debilitating to say the least. She needed help with everything including just moving around and feeding herself. Yet, if you look at the fit, able and confident woman she is today, you would never say that she was once so debilitated. The trailer of the film shows her running on the beach and darting off to work in her car. There is no denying that she has found a way to heal herself. (more…)

The MS Diet Explained – Podcast Episode 2

By : | 0 Comments | On : March 13, 2015 | Category : Uncategorized


As promised, Episode 2 of my podcast is all about the foods to avoid and embrace on the MS diet. I discuss each food group that needs to be eradicated from your kitchen and body. I also look at some of the reasons why these foods are MS diet no no’s. Foods to include in your MS diet are up next! This is the exciting part because it opens up a whole new world of delicious, nutritious and healing foods. Just listening back, I realised that I forgot to mention that sweet potato and avocado are my go-to foods. They are full of amazing vitamins and they make me feel full and happy. So, I’ll often add sweet potato, avocado or both to a salad to make it a filling meal. (more…)

Raw Cacao & Oat Squares

I was so honoured to meet up with two London ladies a few weekends ago. We met at the Tower of London and had some tea and a chat at a quirky little place called ‘The Kitchen @ Tower’. Lounging in comfy chairs and sipping our herbal teas, we shared our MS journeys with each other. We chatted about the rocky, difficult times and then we talked about how fantastic we all feel on the MS diet and how it has literally changed our lives. We also shared our feelings about the future. We are all hopeful that we are going to be able to maintain a good quality of life as long as we stay committed to the MS diet way of life. It was very inspiring to see the hope in their eyes.

They are determined not to be beaten by their MS. (more…)

I’m excited to announce that from this week onwards I’ll be doing a weekly podcast!

I’ll also be interviewing inspiring women with MS and professionals who can give us insights into our health and well-being.

In episode one I wanted to reintroduce myself and chat a bit about my MS journey so far. I also share about how I came across the MS diet and how it has helped me recover from MS and stay well. It has been quite a journey and there are still ups, downs and bumps along the way. But, I wouldn’t change it for anything! (more…)
