Mindfulness reduces this common problem in multiple sclerosis

Mindfulness can reduce depression in people with multiple sclerosis (MS), a new study has found.

The research, which took place in an outpatient clinic in Germany, found that reducing depression also led to a reduction in fatigue.

A total of 69 people with MS took part in the study, and used self-assessment tools for evaluation.

“The results suggest that mindfulness might be particularly relevant to counteract depression in MS which in turn can reduce fatigue,” the investigators wrote.
