Living Proof Documentary

I’d been looking forward to the release of Living Proof for months. It has finally been released on Amazon for free and is well worth a watch.

Matt Embry who is the creator and who the films about was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1995 and has been living drug-free for more than 20 years since his diagnosis. He has done an amazing job with this film as it’s not only moving and inspiring but hugely informative as well. It’s a real eye opener for those of us navigating this world of MS drugs and diet and lifestyle choices.

When a young man is diagnosed with a debilitating autoimmune disease with no cure, he and his father go on a journey to find answers and hope. Filmmaker Matt Embry and his family are devastated when he is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Having previously directed documentaries on Theo Fleury, Jann Arden, Ian Tyson and WP Kinsella, Embry allows cameras into his own life as he and his father, Dr. Ashton Embry, embark on a quest to find insight into the incurable disease. Instead, they discover controversy, confusion and even allegations of conflicts of interest between Big Pharma and MS charities.  From England to Iowa, Embry encounters other MS-sufferers who share their own information and question if neurologists, Big Pharma, academia, government and multiple sclerosis charities are keeping MS patients from accessing alternative treatments for the sake of profit and greed. In the vein of Roger and Me and League of Denial, Living Proof stylistically blends first-person investigative filmmaking, hard science and a compelling, heartfelt story of a father and son’s fight to discover the truth and save lives.

He’s also created the website www.mshope.com (linked below) to help and inspire others with their MS diagnosis which is a fantastic resource. His dietary recommendations are much like OMS with the addition of lean meat. Matt has also had the CCSVI (Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency) procedure which I find really interesting. He said he felt amazing after the procedure but the results didn’t last so thats why he uses vigorous physical activity as this helps with widening the veins in the neck and blood flow. This vision of Matt running (above) always inspires me to go running, and when I do I always feel so much better.
