multiple causes multiple cures.
Crap greasy diet (earned titles and awards for this)
High smoking rate
High cancer rate
Famous for alcohol abuse
Also famous for developing several global inventions. Home of Adam Smith the mad capitalist. Instigator of many modern medical techniques and treatments. Well in with the secret societies.
Strong history of medicine. First to highlight spinal lesions (carswell).
Glasgow have their own quackbusters to kill of natural healthcare.
Probably first to mass produce MS Mice. Probably the first to heavily commercialise MS. First to build a meaningful customer base.
Run into the ground by an English MS Society.
Worlds worst MS rate.
CCSVI might not be the be all and end all. Maybe 10,000 years of trepanation tells us that blood flow issues are the problem, not the problem for MS but the problem of many health related issues.
Posture, exercise, diet, angioplasty, it doesn't really matter. A combination of all factors are optimal, along with many others and to leave one out can cause damage.
Most of the CCSVI advocation is around selling angioplasty, selling educational packages, donations & selling the idea that modern clinical trial are "TRUTH"
All-in-all, there seems to be hell of a lot more possibilities than angioplasty. It doesn't mean either view is right or wrong.
Scientists have a lot in common with politicians and that sure as hell isn't medicine.
Yeah, scotland is screwed. Deceitful business interests have ensured CCSVI won't be an option for most. It probably wont be until people start looking at these other options.
Vascular surgeons are just like the neuroligists and scientists as they only really know about a specific topic. They are not fitness coaches, acupunctursts, chrioparctors, gymnasts or rock climbers.
Theres no full answers in isolation, proven historically.
Different viewpoints are more than welcome. The mass produced business advocacy packages tied up in scientific isolation is hardly an indepth appoach to a generalized problem.
I know just by talking to people that I am not the only one who believes there are options openly available.
Cost wise, from free to hell of a lot cheaper and safer than medical solutions.
So how does a person improve their own blood flow if the medical world is all screwed up?
Last night I was looking at the Acerola. It seems interesting in relation to CCSVI and blood flow.
Just felt like a rant, the scotland mention reminded me that we're the toilet seat of the UK. MS is big business in scotland. Several methods dont make economical sense to business concerns.
Sports scientist could add to the CCSVI theory, mountaineers, endurance athletes, acupuncturists, physiotherapists, herbalists, parents, vets, etc. Lot's of options out there & each situation will be somewhat different.
The medical profession may hold all the cards via the reliance on scientific mish-mash but they are severly lacking in other areas, both in knowledge and experience.
I dont think CCSVI will ever be a complete answer but less so if it's left on its lonesome for medical/scientific scrutiny.
