EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE
Over the years, the scientific research and understanding of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) has exploded! There are now countless books, websites and other resources available to those interested in learning about MS and related symptoms. Along with having this factual information at our fingertips, there are unfortunately many books, websites and blogs that offer quick fixes, promises of cures and a wealth of misinformation. This misinformation is often not grounded scientifically, and could cause harm to those living with MS. Sometimes it is hard to know the difference between fact and fiction.
Your MS Compass is dedicated to providing the scientific, accurate and up to date information you need to understand MS, associated symptoms and how to approach life with MS. Our team will do the sifting through the available science, research, and anecdotal reports for you to offer insights on many topics related to MS. In addition, we provide scientifically supportive references to guide those who want to learn beyond the basics.
