Hi Mindy,

Thank you for your insight. You made a good point when you said:

"It's important to remember that slowed reaction or slowed speech does not mean that the person lacks intelligence or spark. It just means that the neurons are not firing as expected that class will be different, better or worse, for sure."

If a person has MS or has a loved one who ds we understand the reality of your words. Unfortunately, a larger portion of the public hasn't received the message yet. I sometimes see people who will not talk to a person with MS, but instead will talk to a family member of the person with MS - as if the person with MS isn't even there.

Sometimes society's neurons aren't firing as we might hope. But times are changing and people have gradually begun to understand what MS is. At the same time, medicine is beginning to accept yoga for neurological disorders.

Om Shanti,
