  • A Story of Hope and much much more 4/14/2018 12:00:00 AM by kprigotzke 10

    He takes you on a journey from what the MS Society of Canada, pharmaceutical companies and the main food industries in World would want you to follow, which leaves MS pateints in a worse off spot. Then through alternative therapies like CSSVI treatment and stem cell but you really don't see significant change in regards but are still closer to the right path. Then he dives into the world of life style changes like diet, supplements and exercise and how they have helped multiple MS pateints and with impress results. The life style change is built completely on facts that have been gathered through tons of research started off by his father Dr. Ashton Embry. He also sheds light on how the MS Society of Canada has lost their focus. Although in the face adversity and a giant powerful, wealthy society like the MS Society of Canada he never once bad mouths them and I have not seen him in any other posts of his do so.

    Matt Embry is an inspiration to myself and many others. He's a role model of mine but on top of this he has fantastic talents like his film making, producing & directing. The film is pieced together so elegantly as he takes us through the delicate situation of MS Patients and their journey, as well as his own.

    I highly recommend this film for anyone that wants to feel something. Find out about the truth as this isn't just the MS Society of Canada that it applies to. Many other societies have also lost their way and their focus. Anyone that loves Documentaries or good quality film making should also see this.

    Great job Matt Embry and crew, fantastic job!

    I watch documentaries all the time, this is one of my top favorites if not the favorite. I don't have ms nor do I have anyone close to me that does, yet I'm drawn into the struggle of the people in this documentary. It's fascinating!

  • No proof, just more pseudo science 6/21/2019 12:00:00 AM by arniedadrink-15985 1

    While I agree big pharma are corrupt and big charities are just there to make money, I highly doubt the integrity of this information compared to those by real scientist working on the problem. Remember to always investigate claims like this yourself as you will soon see things like CCSVI are nonsense. Regarding diets, yes eat well and it can help you cope with many different disabilities but don't expect a miracle cure because it ain't gonna happen, go to a support group or accept it and learn what works for you together with a professional Neuro.

  • I have no one to talk to about this....SAD 7/27/2019 12:00:00 AM by jposhea8888-1978 9

    After stifling sniffles and periodic eye drying, anger sets in. These scarce cinematic masterpieces uniquely appear before us. They appear almost preordained by some unquantifiable force, but they'll find us...the lucky ones with antenna still raised.

    Disclosure, I have not a single root in MS or any other autoimmune syndrome yet "Living Proof" gratefully sought me. I'll leave you with this: If you want to measure the character of someone this Documentary is all you need. Ask them to watch, if they're devoid of feeling or attachment then they most likely dwell in the dark recesses of the mind, lacking empathy, and you might want to reconsider your relationship(s) with them. Yeah, that's how much this flic efffin' moved me. Enjoy.

  • everyone should watch this doc- very well done and profoundly real 8/4/2019 12:00:00 AM by sarahhayne 10

    This is a brave, compassionate and real look at the dysfunctional relationship between disease and our modern health care culture. A must see for anyone who ever plans to see a doctor and take a prescription let alone have chronic symptoms of any kind. You are being fooled by big industry and sadly our apathetic if not complicit FDA. A life changer if you don't already know whats happening in healthcare.Very well done!
