Live Your Life, Not Your Diagnosis

“If you have been diagnosed with MS, you’ve struck gold by finding it. It’s a guiding arm around you as you navigate what to do. But even without a specific diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, you will benefit from Andrea’s wisdom.”

“It is refreshing to have a book that fosters hope and promotes self-healing.”

“A true guide on how to listen to our bodies, connect to them, nurture ourselves and understand the power of our mindset.”

 “I will be recommending Live Your Life, Not Your Diagnosis widely to all my patients when dealing with a diagnosis or setback!”

Health Mindset Podcast, Episode 18

This is the last podcast in a three-part series where I talk about my book, Stop Carrying the Weight of Your MS. In this podcast I talk about my personal struggles with diet, why finding an MS diet is so tough. And I reveal the real reason why diet has become a four letter word for all of us.

Find out why what we eat is so important (it’s more than you think) and why it’s completely possible to create a diet you love AND will be motivated to stick with for the long-run. Because why should we go through diet-suffering if the payoff won’t last anyway?

Join me as I share the behind the scenes look at what I was thinking as I wrote this chapter, and a reading of Chapter 3 of my latest book. (Available in your favorite bookstores now.)

If you have questions you want me to answer, don’t be shy! This was so much fun I will definitely do more Q&A podcasts. Send questions to

In this episode, you will learn-

-How to create a food journal that is actually helpful and doesn’t suck.

-2 simple moves to clean up your diet immediately.

-What you should know before you go gluten free (or sugar free, or carbohydrate free…).

-Why I think following guru diets (like the MS diet) can be unhelpful for long term health.
