Do stenoses come and go? If they do, they might not always show up on a scan. If it is congenital how come the 90% blockage disappeared? Are they more an inflammatory reaction since they might not be permanent?
That last sentance has got me thinking.
Before I learned of CCVIS, I had been persuing treatment with helminthic organisms (hookworms, namely) because it seemed to be so effective againtst not only MS, but for a whole array of auto immune disorders.
Then, come December, I learned of CCVIS and Liberation. I was scratching my head big time. How could these two radically different treatments both be showing so much sucess? Would the hookworms take enough Iron out of the blood to avoid creating deposits? The MSers with anemia seemed to throw that theory off. Ever since, I've been looking for a way to reconcile the two ideas.
Now you mention inflamation as a possible cause of CCVIS. Inflamation is a common thread throughout autoimmune diseases, and seem to respond remarkably well to hookworm infections. What if hookworms infections alter the immune system in a way that could prevent the inflamation that causes CCVIS?
For an earlier discussion on helminthic treatments:
Needless to say, we're far from the point of being able to draw conclusoins, but reading this definetly has me thinking of the possible link!
