Living well

ALL affects your body, but also affects you emotionally and practically, for example, you will have to stop your work temporarily, your day-to-day activities may change and you will need to find the best way to cope with your new situation. In this section, you can learn about things you can do outside of the clinic and your prescribed medication to help you manage ALL.

Here, we cover a range of topics, such as healthy lifestyles, nutrition and exercise. In addition, we discuss the importance of having support from friends, family and non-profit organisations, so that you can successfully transition into normal life. Eating well can be important for aiding your recovery, and appropriate amounts of physical activity can also help.

Watch the videos from these leading experts to learn what you can be doing to support your prescribed treatment.
