Hey, even Rogan's could have been condensed by a professional into one shorter video showing the "meat" of the matter. To give an unrelated example, I think the below parchment-cone video is better than the more-popular parchment-cone video's, since it offers "instant yet concise education" - see what i mean?
I doubt that you're ever going to find a step-by-step "do it yourself at home" CCSVI video. Instead, read some of Dr. Sclafani's several case study posts. These are a invaluable resource for people wishing to learn about CCSVI.
Thanks for the compliment. It deserves a response and here is an interesting case from this past week.

.................I wait very impatiently to learn whether stenting of recurrent stenosis has been helpful.

Dr.Sclafani, thanks! This mention of botox is interesting, because I once asked my dentist why (since people with Dead Teeth do not feel pain), why can't they administer Botox for people who have constant tooth pain - the kind which xrays never discerned, even when 2 kineseologists did! Some peoples' bodies automatically Eject bad teeth, or turn them "dead". But what about those of us stuck with unremitting pain? The dentist found my Q interesting, but had no answer as to why dentistry does not offer Botox.
Regarding the stenosis reverting back to its original configuration:
Does this mean that Stenosis fibers are sorta like a rubber band (since scar tissue has flexible plasticity), and that a strong balloon actually has the capability of RESHAPING SCAR TISSUE - LIKE A STRETCHED RUBBERBAND GETS RESHAPED, so that the Reshaped Configuration stays that way??
In response to dlynn, re: the long air flight:
It's probably hopeless for me to say this, because most people relate to whichever frames of reference they've latched onto for a significant period of time. But for the record, I see a correlation in the air flight triggering re-stenosis, and testimonies I read of people with electrosensitivity. Air flight affects them too, as it does the elderly. So have you considered the EMF factor, rather than just the altitude? Granted. electrosensitives have gotten relief from moving to lower/WARMER altitudes, but they have also strongly been affected by EMFs. Airplanes have alot of EMFs.
Not only that, but EMFs of my computer cause me to feel Tarsal Tunnel in my Feet NOT JUST my wrists!!
...But also (and quite obvious) is that staying seated affects circulation, whereas walking around the plane (and computer breaks) restores same.
Which brings to the fore this question: Was Dr.Sclafani's current patient overexposed to EMFs within a short period after having undergone venoplasty? No matter how skeptical everyone here is, I'm still curious. In fact, the patient's symptoms very much resemble some electrosensitives, and also some fibromyalgics.
P.S. I still think a short-version of Rogan's video is best for newbs, and yes I know that CCSVI ain't no cone (to quote you), but I was just giving the cone-video as a demo of what [at least some] newbs appreciate, if they're like me. I myself lack the discernment to detect abnormalities in live xrays. Within these past weeks, btw, I was checked out via venous doppler & arterial doppler, from my feet through my thigh joints. The results were normal (which surprised me, considering my excruciating pain in arches & inner thigh joints). The techie who gave me the test never heard anyone scream in such agony. It's as if I have shrapnel or calcified Lyme or nanobacterial microcalcifications or mercury/metals distributed randomly in my tissues). Ridiculously and expectedly, what tested abnormal for me was elevated cholesterol and low D3.
As if I didn't have my pains for decades already, even when I was thin & my cholesterol low!!
As if D3 supplements have helped me, even when I took D3 steadily.
What a joke - take someone filled with shrapnel, whose nerves are majorly damaged from four decades of inflammations, how is D3 supposed to help? Even all-powerful stem cells need a proper communication system to know where to go. But the QXCI diagnosed me with "blocked homeopathic links due to toxic exposure", so barring communication links, how would stem cells know where to go? Which is probably why 66% fail to get helped via stem cells.
