In the wake of celebrity TV star and music manager Jack Osbourne – son of famed musician Ozzy Osbourne – recently receiving a multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis, the world has once again grown curious of what exactly the condition is and how it affects the body. And perhaps of equal importance is whether or not a person can better manage MS through their diet and fitness regimen.
Osbourne, 26, is trying to deal positively with MS, which is a chronic autoimmune disorder that affects the body’s central nervous system. MS has been known to cause blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, extreme fatigue, numbness, paralysis, blindness, memory loss and more. And because of the volatility of the condition, these symptoms can remain permanent or may come and go.
In addition to proper diet and digestion, one of the most crucial areas of the body an MS patient can focus on to better manage the condition is the myelin sheathe of nerve fibers, because it is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system.
Some of the foods experts claim can trigger MS-symptoms include dairy, grains containing gluten, legumes eggs and yeast.

Jack Osbourne is no stranger to the spotlight. He is the son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne and is now in the news for a different reason. Jack lost weight a few years back, which garnered him a lot of attention, but now he is enduring a new fitness routine that involves some extreme training. His new fitness routine is said to be the same type of training that U.S. Navy SEALS use.
Jack has gotten a personal trainer and is working out at Crossfit gym in Hollywood. Jack lost 50 pounds back in 2005 while he was preparing for his extreme show titled Jack Osbourne: Adrenaline Junkie. He has been focused on maintaining his weight loss and staying in shape since then.
The rigorous exercise routine that Jack is going through now includes elements from sports like gymnastics, endurance running, weight lifting and cardio work. There has also been recent news that after serving four years as a reserve police officer, Jack Osbourne would like to become a full time officer, and getting into shape and working out regularly to prepare for the police academy can only help.
