Flying home from a conference on Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in New York this week, I couldn’t shake two memories.
The first was one patient’s words after receiving “liberation” treatment: “In general, I feel that I’m healing instead of just continuing to fail.” The second was a doctor’s plea: “I have eighty patients on an excel spreadsheet, they are desperate, and I want to help.”
Our party supports funding research for MS for all forms of treatment – including research into liberation treatment.
Liberation treatment is a cutting-edge therapy for MS patients thought to be suffering from chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), a narrowing or blockage of veins in the neck which drain blood from the brain, that may trigger MS symptoms.
One researcher, Dr. Salvi of Italy told the other doctors in attendance — leading researchers from Bulgaria, Italy, Kuwait, and the United States — that you “don’t have to treat many to understand that something positive happens to these patients.”
It was an encouraging note amid a wider discussion on making rapidly-evolving science available, managing patient expectations, and the importance of developing a registry to capture pre-operative and post-operative data, and promote more published research.

I was hoping for doctors interested to start treating! or at least able to do the follow up!!!
I had a cold shower when I went for a Doppler in Montreal recently, they said they are not finding the same percentage as Zamboni. The tech said they have a better method!?!??
That's why I was hoping for canadian and/or Quebec attendee!
