I’m not sure exactly what you mean… is this simply thinking positively or is this the name for a type of alternative therapy that I might not have heard of?

My comment refers to the extent to which charities and the NHS seem to avoid the risk of pursuing treatments which are outside the mainstream. I have worked in the computer industry for many years and note that its attitude to risk is quite different, in fact they welcome risk as there can be no progress without thinking outside the box!. Clearly, that the IT environment is quite different in that there is no risk of death from trying out a new therapy.! The medical world is necessarily more conservative but MS sufferers are missing out on things like accupuncture and positive psychology which may offer useful treatments,

Ah I see! I know that the MS Society and MS Trust display links to information about “complementary therapies” available like acupuncture etc. But yeah, I get what you mean (I think I may have said as much on your other post). It’s not that they’re unheard of, but they are listed as an alternative and unconventional approach which doesn’t really look at factors like diet and exercise and show how important they can be to managing the condition.
