Please Join Me for a Live Webinar on Complementary and Alternative Medicines In the Treatment of MS, This Thursday Night, September 17, 2015, at 8 PM Eastern Time.

This coming Thursday, September 17, 2015, I’ll be participating in a live 60 minute webinar discussing the topic of complementary and alternative medicines in the treatment of MS, held by the iConquerMS initiative (click here). I’m a big supporter of iConquerMS, a patient driven research project, and I urge everybody to visit their site, join up, and participate in helping to rid the planet of this terrible disease.

During this Thursday’s webinar I’ll be joined by Dr. Deneb Bates, the Naturopathic Doctor who works at the MS clinic at which I am a patient, the International Multiple Sclerosis Management Practice here in New York City (click here). Dr. Bates is among the sharpest doctors I’ve ever worked with, and believe me, I’ve worked with a lot of them given the wild and wacky nature of the Three-Headed Beast of an illness that is trying to have its way with me (click here). Moderating the event will be Robert McBurney, the President and CEO of the Accelerated Cure Project, the extraordinary nonprofit MS research group that is facilitating the iConquerMS project.

I expect the webinar to include a wide range of topics, including the use of diet and supplements in the treatment of MS, many of the popular alternative Multiple Sclerosis treatment methodologies being utilized by the MS patient population, and the importance of taking an integrative medical approach to treating the disease. There will be ample time for questions and answers, and by registering for the webinar online (click here) – be sure to hit the "register" link on the webinar info website – you’ll have the opportunity to submit questions on your own particular topic of interest. There will also be an interactive chat box included on the webinar screen, allowing attendees to submit questions during the live event.

Unfortunately, my request that Dr. Bates and I get to sing some of my favorite tunes from “West Side Story” and then maybe reenact the “I Coulda Been a Contender” scene from On the Waterfront (click here) during the webinar were respectfully denied, but I I agreed to do the event anyway. Hey, no sacrifice is too great for the cause, so please register and actively participate by submitting your questions…

UPDATED 9/13/2015: For those who cannot attend the live webinar, it will be archived for later viewing/listening. I'll post a link to the archived webinar as soon as it's posted to the net.

  1. I just saw her a few weeks ago and am excited to finally be tested for gut problems I've suffered my whole life. Finally a doctor who doesn't give you the "eyeroll", dismiss you as difficult or challenge your symptoms. She really is a rare gem. Will the webinar be archived to be listened to at a later date. I take a class Thursday nights that ends at 8:00.

  5. I really liked the webinar. It shed some light on the latest Biotin craze, which I was not really informed about. Additionally, the subject of doctor/patient relationship was empowering, a subject we really need support on in this sometimes unbalanced relationship. Overall, the discussion had real information and facts to share, was down to earth and included the famous wit and humor of your personal style which makes it all more engaging. More topics such as the gut/brain relationship, the different types of trials with stem cell, and maybe an exploration of different MS theories would be nice to hear about. Thanks for being such an advocate.
