Become an Empowered Patient

Yes, Empower Me!

Go into your appointments feeling focused and confident so you can collaborate with your doctor.

Getting diagnosed with a chronic illness – a neurological degenerative one at that – is not easy. The mind can travel to all the “what-if” scenarios. (There are many and they’re quite elaborate!)

I had BIG dreams for my future. Did I now need to scale them back? I had to be realistic, right?

Then I realized I had a choice, focus on the fear or focus on the positive.

The real reality is that nobody has guaranteed health in this world. I simply needed to educate myself on the disease – as awful as it may be – but equally as important, I needed to get my mind onboard with my healing journey.

Thoughts are powerful. They can be nourishing nectar or toxic poison.

I wanted nourishing nectar!

I was not alone in developing the right mindset.

I recently featured among several other MS Thrivers in the Healthline article, “My MS Mantra: 7 Influencers Share What Keeps Them Strong.

Hop on over to their site to read the full article here.

I hope it inspires you to create your own mantra. If you do, I’d love to hear your mantra! Comment below or drop me a line at alene@alenebrennan.com.

I'm Alene, your MS Sister.

When I was diagnosed with MS in 2016, I was scared and felt alone. But as a Nutrition Coach, I knew there was more to healing than what I was being told. I took action and within six months the lesions I had on my brain shrunk and went inactive. Now, seven years later there has been no new lesions and no new activity. As a nutritionist specializing in multiple sclerosis, I help women take back control of their future.

That’s my story, but I’m not alone. It's your turn to start Thriving with MS. I’m here to show you the way.
