In 2001, Lisa was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS and at that point, her symptoms don’t come and go. She experienced worsening physical impairments which made her daily activities more difficult to do. After much realization, Lisa has developed a “rockstar” mindset and believed that there are options to get better and be the person she wanted to be. She got used to dealing with the illness and it became easier for her to live the rockstar life.
Through her own experience and by talking to women suffering from MS in the different states in the US and in other countries, Lisa was compelled to write the book and establish a unique global community which aims to empower women and help them live actively to further improve their way of life.

The Onwards Medical Breakthrough
Memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s reversed for first time
“The study, which comes jointly from the UCLA Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research and the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, is the first to suggest that memory loss in patients may be reversed, and improvement sustained, using a complex, 36-point therapeutic program that involves comprehensive changes in diet, brain stimulation, exercise, optimization of sleep, specific pharmaceuticals and vitamins, and multiple additional steps that affect brain chemistry.”
“The findings, published in the current online edition of the journal Aging, “are very encouraging. However, at the current time the results are anecdotal, and therefore a more extensive, controlled clinical trial is warranted,” said Dale Bredesen, the Augustus Rose Professor of Neurology and Director of the Easton Center at UCLA, a professor at the Buck Institute, and the author of the paper.”
