I have just returned from Egypt, where I was tested and received three balloon angioplasties to open blocked jugular and azygos veins that the doctor said were the worst he'd seen, so far. I am seven days, post-op and starting to recover from jet lag, sleep deprivation, two thirty hour journeys over three continents and a life changing, but relatively simple medical procedure.
Most of my symptoms and some unexpected ones are returning to normal, at least to some degree, and some seem to have disappeared completely. Here is my symptom report, seven days post-op.
• the ground isn't moving anymore, better balance and no vertigio
• no spasms or shaking anything, my body is at rest
• spasticity mostly gone
• my complexion has changed from bluish to pinkish
• i can breathe properly when I didn't realize how bad my breathing and swallowing is easier and there is less choking
• I am taller and have relaxed neck and shoulders
• I turned the heat up 2º in my house and I am sleeping long and comfortably and amwarm, without sweating or freezng
• walking still isn't that much better, but I am a little weak, though and I'm confident I won't be using the cane much as time goes on. I've also spent so much time trying tocompensate for poor walking that things will have to reorder in my head before I walk better. There are already flashes of brilliant walking
• total clarity of thought, better response from thought to mouth . . .little hesitation, quicker thinking
• Urination problems resolved to a large degree. IP Freely, with less hesitation and i am able to hold it, when I need to, with compete voiding of kidneys
• lots of energy and purpose
and many more things still to come, inshallah
The 24 hours following the procedure was spent resting, staying in, on, or near my bed and watching the American shows on the five available English TV stations. Two movie channels and MTV that promoted war, violence, porn and the American way of life, CNN and Discovery Science, which exhibited the west's vast technological superiority over the Middle East. I digress.
I've been trying to figure out why the antibiotic program that I've been on for the past six years has seemed to arrest the development of my disease progress and weighing that with the CCSVI findings of Zamboni and my own personal experience, then . . .
There was a program about brewing beer in North America and a new Molson's plant, being built in Moncton, New Brunswick. It was explained that $4 million dollars worth of piping had to be sent back to the manufacturer because the inside surface wasn't perfectly smooth. The imperfections trapped bacteria, making for bad beer. And what if the pipes are completely blocked?
It's all about your pipes and keeping them clean! That's why a change of diet, or adding antibiotics early on may reverse, or halt MS progression. As we have developed genetic dispositions and we age, smoke, eat poorly, take birth control pills and pursue other unhealthy vein behaviour, such as poor diet with no real sunlight for Vitamin D, our veins have narrowed and in more women than men and in a worldwide epidemic that is spreading, while we are being urged to preserve the "American" way of life. Read this link on Deep vein thrombosis, explaining the links to vitamin D and vein health. It explains, for me, the heavier weighting that women have towards MS with regards to birth control. http://ezinearticles.com/?Vitamin-D-Doe ... id=2270549
I still am convinced, from my own oersonal experience, that Chlamydia pneumoniae, or something that the Wheldon protocol was fighting, played a major factor in my illness. Even after five years, when I took a long break from my antibiotic regime, my symptoms worsened. I, also, always felt better, sharper when taking flagyl (metronidazole).
I don't think you HAVE to have Cpn to cause the symptoms of MS, but combining the theories of Zamboni with those of Stratton and Wheldon, along with the practicing of good vein health, answers all of the questions I have about the causes, disease process and the treatment protocol in MY exhibition of Multiple Sclerosis. The people over at antibiotics (http://www.thisisms.com/ftopic-6670-15.html
) should give themselves a little clap on the back. Instead, they are scratching their heads, because they were getting close and along came Zamboni.
They're all right! Save the folks that are trying to sell us snake oil in the guise of science. This is the Aha! moment for me. Can you think of any aspects of MS that this combination of several theories doesn't explain?
My liberation was a gift from the east to the west and I am SOOOO grateful and happy!
I have a new theme song! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtxuW1cOdTQ
