Wellness Institute

Welcome to the Epilepsy Foundation Wellness Institute! In 2016, we first introduced the Institute at the Epilepsy Pipeline Community Conference Day to recognize the importance of a holistic approach to health for persons dealing with seizures and epilepsy — one that would support them to live their lives to their fullest potential.

Our Wellness Institute is growing! What started with four pillars or areas of wellness (healthy eating, fitness and exercise, art therapy. and emotional health) has evolved to include more aspects of daily life. All of these areas affect someone who lives with epilepsy and seizures – as well as their family, friends, caregivers, and other supporters. The graphic below shows these areas or “life dimensions” of wellness. They include:

While each dimension of life can stand alone, they are all connected to each other. As one dimension improves or is challenged, so are the others.

Why is Wellness Important?

A 2016 Epilepsy Foundation community survey focusing on innovation research asked the following question, “Where should epilepsy researchers focus?” Over 1,000 survey participants ranked stopping seizures and improving quality of life as the top areas epilepsy researchers should tackle. This finding suggests that not only are the medical aspects of having seizures important, but the effect they have on daily living deserves just as much attention.

The Wellness Institute Mission

The Epilepsy Foundation’s Wellness Institute believes that everyone, including people with all types of epilepsy and associated conditions, deserves to live a full and productive life to the best of their abilities. By raising awareness about healthy behaviors, promoting evidence-based programs and activities, partnering with local and national organizations, and disseminating research, we hope to share with you practical and effective strategies to enhance your well-being and overall quality of life.

    Multiple Sclerosis Fatigue: Causes and Treatments #multiple #sclerosis #fatigue, #multiple #sclerosis, #ms, #fatigue, #sleep, #energy,

    by ,


    Multiple Sclerosis and Fatigue

    Medically speaking, fatigue is not the same thing as tiredness. Tiredness happens to everyone — it is an expected feeling after certain activities or at the end of the day. Usually you know why you are tired and a good night’s sleep solves the problem.

    Fatigue is a daily lack of energy; unusual or excessive whole-body tiredness not relieved by sleep. It can be acute (lasting a month or less) or chronic (lasting from one to six months or longer). Fatigue can prevent a person from functioning normally and affects a person’s quality of life.

    According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, 80% of people with MS have fatigue. MS-related fatigue tends to get worse as the day goes on, is often aggravated by heat and humidity. and comes on more easily and suddenly than normal fatigue.

    What Can I Do About MS-Related Fatigue?

    The best way to combat fatigue related to your MS is to treat the underlying medical cause. Unfortunately, the exact cause of MS-related fatigue is often unknown, or there may be multiple causes. However, there are steps you can take that may help to control fatigue. Here are some tips:

    1. Assess your personal situation.

    • Evaluate your level of energy. Think of your personal energy stores as a “bank.” Deposits and withdrawals have to be made over the course of the day or the week to balance energy conservation, restoration, and expenditure. Keep a diary for one week to identify the time of day when you are either most fatigued or have the most energy. Note what you think may be contributing factors.
    • Be alert to your personal warning signs of fatigue. Fatigue warning signs may include tired eyes. tired legs, whole-body tiredness, stiff shoulders, decreased energy or a lack of energy, inability to concentrate, weakness or malaise, boredom or lack of motivation, sleepiness, increased irritability, nervousness, anxiety. or impatience.


    2. Conserve your energy.

    • Plan ahead and organize your work. For example, change storage of items to reduce trips or reaching, delegate tasks when needed, and combine activities and simplify details.
    • Schedule rest. For example, balance periods of rest and work and rest before you become fatigued. Frequent, short rests are beneficial.
    • Pace yourself. A moderate pace is better than rushing through activities. Reduce sudden or prolonged strains. Alternate sitting and standing.
    • Practice proper body mechanics. When sitting, use a chair with good back support. Sit up with your back straight and your shoulders back. Adjust the level of your work. Work without bending over. When bending to lift something, bend your knees and use your leg muscles to lift, not your back. Do not bend forward at the waist with your knees straight. Also, try carrying several small loads instead of one large one, or use a cart.
    • Limit work that requires reaching over your head. For example, use long-handled tools, store items lower, and delegate activities whenever possible.
    • Limit work that increases muscle tension.
    • Identify environmental situations that cause fatigue. For example, avoid extremes of temperature, eliminate smoke or harmful fumes, and avoid long hot showers or baths.
    • Prioritize your activities. Decide what activities are important to you, and what could be delegated. Use your energy on important tasks.

    3. Eat Right

    Fatigue is often made worse if you are not eating enough or if you are not eating the right foods. Maintaining good nutrition can help you feel better and have more energy.

    4. Exercise

    Decreased physical activity. which may be the result of illness or of treatment, can lead to tiredness and lack of energy. Scientists have found that even healthy athletes forced to spend extended periods in bed or sitting in chairs develop feelings of anxiety. depression. weakness, fatigue, and nausea. Regular, moderate exercise can decrease these feelings, help you stay active, and increase your energy.

    5. Learn to manage stress

    Managing stress can play an important role in combating fatigue. Here are tips to help keep stress in check:

    • Adjust your expectations. For example, if you have a list of 10 things you want to accomplish today, pare it down to two and leave the rest for other days. A sense of accomplishment goes a long way to reducing stress.
    • Help others understand and support you. Family and friends can be helpful if they can “put themselves in your shoes” and understand what fatigue means to you. Support groups can be a source of comfort as well. Other people with MS understand what you are going through.
    • Relaxation techniques. Audiotapes that teach deep breathing or visualization can help reduce stress .
    • Participate in activities that divert your attention away from fatigue. For example, activities such as knitting, reading, or listening to music require little physical energy but require attention.

    If your stress seems out of control, talk to your doctor. They are there to help.


    When Should I Tell My Doctor About My Fatigue?

    Although fatigue is a common and often expected symptom of MS, you should feel free to mention your concerns to your doctors. There are times when fatigue may be a clue to some other underlying medical problem. Other times, there may be medical interventions that can prevent fatigue.
