I remember reading here (cheerleader?) about genetic collagen defects that show up in "MS" people - which leads to in-elastic vasculature. Doc. Sclafani writes of elastic recoil in the veins Eat lots of Jello? C. Q10? Meat and bone gristle?
I am taking anti-fibrotic enzymes (nattokinase, serrapapinase, rutin, bromelain...), Vit. E8 - 1400 IU/day, Vit. D - 10,000=15,000 IU/day, Pycnogenol, fish oil - 5 - 10 grams/day... mostly, it can't hurt, and hopefully helps. Sr. Simka told me to keep taking it all. Now, if I would just quit smoking tobacco...

on the topic of restenosis: I had the procedure (just ballooning) on March 10 in Poland and I lost most of my improvements about 15 days later. Now I am even worse than I was before the procedure. Also, it took them 3 times with the balloon in order to fix my left jugular, once for the right which was much less narrowed. All that makes me think I have restenosis, probably of the left jugular.
