Counselling & psychotherapy linked to the prevention of MS

Latest study by Northwestern medicine  suggesting  that weekly stress management programme can help MS (multiple sclerosis) patients. The research published in the Journal of Neurology suggests that these weekly support groups of coaching & counselling aided in the prevention of the development of new brain lesions, which normally lead to symptoms of MS.

Lead investigator of the study, David Mohr, professor of preventive medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine declares:

"This is the first time counseling or psychotherapy has been shown to affect the development of new brain lesions. In M.S., the prevention of new brain lesions is an important marker used to judge how effective medications are. The new finding is an important step and the strongest evidence we have to date that stress is involved in M.S."
