I had this procedure done in February in Albany, NY. Absolutely amazing results - no more spasms, great balance/gait, no more brain fog. Only thing that truly helped me and made me feel normal again.

I have had venoplasty or what is called the liberation procedure two times now. The veins that drain the brain and spine are stenosed causing blood to back up in the brain and spine which in turn causes the placques or sclerosis. It is and continues to be the best thing I have ever done for my MS. (I still take LDN. ) The interventional radiologist performs angioplasty/venoplasty and baloons the veins that are stenosed. After the first venoplasty my fatigue went away, I had less brain fog and could feel my fingertips for the first time in years. I also started to dream again. My veins stayed open for about 5 months. Around month 6 the fatigue started in again and I knew my veins must have collapsed. I went back in for another MRI and my brain scan actually showed improvement. I did have 5 lesions on my brain and then after venoplasty I had 3. This procedure works. Nine months from the original venoplasty, I had another one. This time they put me on blood thinners and I am hoping I get more time with this procedure. I recommend looking at the web site www.ccsvi.org or ccsvi facebook for education into this new procedure to help with MS.

I had the Liberation procedure 3x. The 1st time (June 2010 India) good results but very temporary, the veins weren't opened up wide enough. The 2nd time (Aug 2010 Los Cabos Mexico) great results that lasted 6 months, then symptoms came back. The third time (Mar 2011 California) veins were still open, even though symptoms had returned. So I had to look for other options.

I seem to recall a number of people on earthclinic.com seeking help with MS. You might want to put a link to this site on EC.

Seems that Dr. Zamboni (Italy) seeking help for his own wife determined that it is a vascular problem rather than an autoimmune disease. Thank God for the Zamboni's of this planet earth.

Of course they will probably have a little trouble finding someone in USA doing the liberation procedure. I would suggest contacting some place like Mayo Clinic for information.

Hello, I just wanted to say that I've been doing research on the liberation treatment for some time and have come to the conclusion that I want to be tested for CCSVI. Yes, Dr. Zamboni is running trials here in Buffalo, NY but with such high numbers with people having MS here it is a difficult study to get into. I decided I would go to Poland or another country performing the procedure because I am only 29 and was diagnosed in'08 and I have two young children. Upon researching I found a Dr. Here in New York State that does do the procedure and I finally got my referral to see this doctor for evaluation. The staff there is very polite, via talking to them, and I look forward to going. I was also told by staff at the office that some insurance companies are on board now with paying for this procedure to be done. I will post an update after I go for my initial visit.

I had the procedure done in Feb, 2011 with good results and if my veins close up, I will go back and do again. Most of the people on our facebook page who have had it done, some 4 times with great results along with doctors who have ms. I have went off the shots and now only do LDN. There are alot of places in the US now that do the procedure. I had mine done in FL at SHands, also the Moffit Center in Tampa is doing it. Also try this web site, http://ccsvi-ms.ning.com/ and join that, there is alot of info on there and it show you places in the US close to you for the procedure. It is an easy procedure, in and out the same day with no problems. Don't tell your dr you are having it done, just make the arrangements on your own and they know how to word it so the insureance co's will pay. (most of them) Good luck

I was diagnosed with MS in 2001 and it been a living nightmare. I did some research and I found Turmeric on the internet. I went to Outpost health store in Milwaukee. I am really shocked at my symptoms. They are not as bad as they were before. I am working out everyday and not having as many relapses as before. I feel better then every. I though a few months ago I was heading for a wheelchair. I take it with Organic Carrot Juice in the morning and occassionally I have it in some bottle water a few days a week. It works.

Vaccinations

Posted by Mary (Southaven, MS) on 05/18/2008

This is so strange; I found this site while researching about my dog's bad reaction to vaccination. I watched the video on You-Tube in the above link, thinking it was about animals. It was about human vaccinations. In the information, it mentioned persons getting auto-immune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, after routine vaccinations. My husband got MS 8 years ago when he was 48 -- after taking his very first-ever flu shot, and had received a tetnus booster just a month or so before. Coincidence???.... I can see I have some more research to do. As for my chihuahua, after reading all the stories on here, she will NEVER receive another vaccination of any kind. She is strictly an indoor dog and I no longer see the need for it.

EC: The post Mary is referring to is from our Pet Vaccinations Side Effects page:

To Mary from South Haven 5/18/08 - Could very well be connected to his first ever flu shot, but you're not likely to ever convince the FDA of this (or his doctor). Knowing that they are now putting monosodium glutamate into vaccines, if they are calling it a preservative, they might also be putting it into the nasal spray ones which would give the MSG a direct route to the brain through the olfactory nerve. MSG is a well-known neurotoxin to the brain. Also the Gulf Storm veterans are still battling to prove that something in the vaccine they were given as a prophylactic caused their Gulf Storm Syndrome and the last I heard the government was trying to say there is no Gulf War Syndrome, that it is all in their heads (fancy word is psychosomatic). One doctor found squalene in GS veterans blood samples that she checked that she said caused. But the argument is still alive! Another known neurotoxin called sodium fluoride in our water supply is also implicated in multiple scherosis. Any toxin that you can eliminate won't hurt and probably will help.

It is possible his vaccination contained a preservative called Thimerosol which is mercury-containing. Mercury is highly toxic to the human body. I have had bad reactions after vaccinations. Mercury is also present in "silver" dental amalgam fillings of the teeth and has been implicated as a possible contributor towards MS. It could be a heavy metals issue or that the vaccination was the impetus for an immune response that triggered the MS. FYI.

Do some research on gut permeability and gluten. Increase RAW fruits and veggies, Reduce sugar, do away with form of wheat (bread, pasta, etc,...); and get some sun. I am doing well with these simple, and even better, CHEAP ways.

I like to learn from other people's experiences. Having been diagnosed with "it LOOKS like you MIGHT have ms", I wanted to do something immediately. I was going deaf in one ear, having trouble walking, etc. My indefatigueable will to walk and not be crippled by this menace was effective but not good enough. Now I am Vegan, but I warn those with MS to stay the HEll AWAY FROM SUGAR, ALCOHOL, CAFFEINE, GLUTEN, DAIRY, and any kind of FUNGI! DOING A CANDIDA CLEANSE WILL HELP. Also, take something that has DHA and EPA combined, phosphytdyl serine, DHLA, Gingo/ginseng. Now I am SUPERMAN! I feel great. (I also take LDN).


Vitamin D3

Posted by Phyl (Ocklawaha, Fl) on 08/26/2009

Research has now shown that the cause of MS is the lack of vitamin D3. On the web site patientslikeme.com a group of patients have been keeping a journal. All the research that is being done in the world says the you can take up to 40,000 iu of D3 a day and it is not toxic. There is alot of info to read. In my own research, John Hopkins told the FDA years ago that people were deficient in Vitamin D3 and there would be more diseases because of it. I have MS and I am not able to walk without a cane, walker or I use a wheelchair. I am on Copaxone and have no trouble with it. There is a new drug going for FDA approval in Oct., it is call Fampridine. It is suppose to help with walking ability. I live one day at a time.

Phyl mentions Fampridine (also called Ampyra) for MS. Please research this carefully before using -

"The non-sustained release form of fampridine (i.e. , 4-Aminopyridine Or 4-AP) is used as a bird poison to excite the nerve cells so much so that birds get seizure and die. In the process of neuronal excitation, a few individual members of a flock of birds, who have ingested the poison on the roof of a federal building, become hyperactive and utter distress calls which signal other birds to leave the site. The compound is highly poisonous to mammals. It has in fact been known to cause severe poisoning, and in some cases, death, in adult humans. "

I looked into this at my mother-in-law's request, as she has been dealing with MS for about 15 years. This drug is not only dangerous, but in the control studies, people's ability to walk a distance of 25 feet was only increased by .8 seconds. Not even a full second, so is it worth the risk for next to no pay-off?

Both my maternal grandfather and my mother had full blow MS. So I have an intense interest in the subject. After much study I offer these four helps to rebuild the myelin sheath.

First: It is likely that a virus has made inroads allowing lesions after attacking the myelin sheath. This is an open wound on the nerve. The sheath has been made suceptible to attack because the wrong oils have been consumed over the years making the sheath "wall" weak. To build the wall back the patient needs good oils especially evening primrose oil in large quantities; 2-3 thousand IUs daily. The good oils must be used for consumption like Olive Oil. Hydrogenated oils must be avoided at all costs. Most restaurants use hydrogenated.

Second: To kill the virus, the patient must ingest colloidal silver daily for at least 6 months, one eighth cup a day, twice a day. One will not turn blue if you are taking true colloidal silver properly diluted. If one does not want to take the silver then there are other virucydes such as echinacea. Hydrogen peroxide can also work. One will need some professional help to administer that.

Third: The patient must take Calcium AEP, up to eight tablets spread throughout the day. Dr. Adkins in his book Vita Nutrients used Calcium AEP as the most important part of his protocol for treathing MS patients. He would give the patients Calcium AEP by IV drip. But one can get the effect orally also. Google Calcium AEP and you will find the many many great helps AEP can give. (Not just MS. ) The key is not the Calcium. The active worker is the AEP. AEP works on the cellular level to do remarkable things. When ever my mother would have a painful leg/ MS "flare up" I made sure she took an extra four or six AEP tablets. That never failed to give her relief. Please read more on AEP. I do not have MS but I take two daily.

Finally, get on line to find a good source for "sphengelin" and I probably have that spelled wrong. This will actually rebuild the myelin sheath.

Also, get Dr Robert Adkins book "Vita Nutrients" and his treatments for all kinds of problems are at the back of the book including MS. He will recommend much more than I have suggested. He does not go after the virus that many believe is an important element in onset MS. That is my only addition to his excellent treatment program.

Hi David, your post, by far, has been very enlightening and has opened my eyes to things that I've been missing in regards to treating my MS. When you discuss the Primrose oil, how much should I be taking daily or more than once a day and do I take it with something else or do I just drink it doesn't come in a capsule? Also, in regards to Dr. Atkins book Vita nutrients does the title also include something about all the other drugs. I have had MS for 10 years and I have been a doctor of pharmacy for 20+ years but I no longer work but instead I do consults from home. You have given me hope and truly means more than anything else. Thank you for the information. I hope this text makes it to you and know it was written a few years back and I hope you are doing well. Thanks for the info and I look forward to hearing from you. God bless


Vitamins D and B12

Posted by Marina (Bristol, UK) on 07/20/2009

I was diagnosed with MS 2 years ago, after several bladder infections and major dizzy spells. Several years previously I was diagnosed with very low levels of Vitamin D, a fallout from the anti sun campaign prevalent in Australia where I was living at the time. I dont know if any of you saw recently the Times headline about the link between low vit D and MS, I have been aware of this for some time, as there appears to be very low rate of MS near the equator, but I also agree with the previous posts re Turmeric and selenium both of which I use sporadically{ of course in India one would presumably have higher sun exposure too.}, I take cod liver oil capsules containing 25 to 50 ugs of vit D daily, depending on time of year ,sun exposure etc. The other thing that seems to help, sometimes quite radically is sub lingual B 12 which I also take every other day. I do think its important to take a complete B supplement as well [ or good multi vit] so that you dont imbalance your B groups. Oh and good quality fish oils are great, flax for vegetarians. I havent taken any medications and my symptoms are much much better. Sugar makes everything worse!

I absolutely agree with what you are doing. I use it too and it works. I also use extra virgin olive oil cold pressed 1 table spoon a day. Make sure it's cold pressed that says on the bottle or you are buing very expensive fat. Also, I take a nap in the middle of a day for one hour. It really helps to get my energy back. Try meditation. It did wonders for me. You do not have to cross your legs and say HHHHHHHH for 2-3 hour, 5 to 10 minutes a day in AM and PM. Look up Dr Oz's show segment with dr Chopra it tells you exactly how to do it.

Also, try to stay away from meat, sugar, gluten, chemicals, MSG as much as you can becauses it causes inflamation in your body. I also use extra virgin coco nut oil 1/2 teaspoon a day. But do not overdo it or you will have blocked arteries.

Also excersice as much as you can. Do the streching excersises, or pilates. Do not waste your money for the gym. I tried it did not work for me. So I bought a stepper, stationary bike and dum bells. it is enough for me.

I have this present (MS) for 9 years.

Belle of the south, sorry but I agree with Violet of Chicago about coconut oil. Coconut oil is a marvelous thing but you have to be very careful about how you use it (as with all things. ) It is not saturated fat but it does have mid chain fatty acids. I started taking it for my thyroid and immediately had paralyzed arms and numbness. I stopped the COil and it went away. A few days later I tried again and the numbness returned. Now I take the coconut oil in much reduced amounts. Too much of a good thing is bad. I had also recommended the cononut oil to my wife.. Same sort of numbness reaction. Use coconut oil... like I do, but as Violet of Chicago says, go easy on the amounts.
