No comments on that.

And this is the part we laugh.
I really believe that most MS damages are permanent. I also believe that apart from CCSVI, neck trauma etc, there are genetic factors or even other diseases which trigger auto immune reaction. I am not sure that "liberation" or chiropractic adjustment will make MS disappear but wherever problems like that exist they should be fixed. I know for a fact that by suppressing the immune system one can't travel far but by addressing the things that are obviously wrong there is a chance that some relief will be obtained.
I also don't believe that all MS patients have CCSVI or fractured bones.
I mostly see MS like something inside us that was waiting to happen.
Even though Zamboni is obviously right about many things, he is not suggesting that CCSVI is THE solution for all of us. He knows better.
Even though chiropractors say that spinal cord problems may lead to MS like symptoms they cannot prove it yet.
One thing neurologists are right for (the only thing) is that autoimmunity takes place. Even if it is secondary, like Zamboni suggests who can tell me that by fixing my veins it will cease? Why not continue? No guarantees there whatsoever. I mean, our immune system has started to misbehave no?
Same goes for chiros. They are willing to help but there is no guarantee it ll work in the short or in the long term.
I strongly believe that each and every one of us must take action for himself/herself. As long MS remains a ghost disease we cannot put our lives in just one man's hands.
Don't expect from neuros to agree with vascular surgeons, dont expect vascular surgeons to agree with chiropractors dont expect chiropractors to agree with neuros and so forth. It is us who will primarily help ourselves making the best decisions possible. As long as drugs remain out of the picture i dont see any harm exploring every option out there.
Neurologists have been PROVEN clueless. Really, makes you wonder what the hell they study all these years. Economics??? Statistical analysis? What???
Nowadays vascular surgeons are scratching the surface. If you want my opinion, they should have done it years ago instead of waiting until Zamboni's wife got sick. It s 2010 and they are not sure how the blood should flow in the main brain drainage veins so there you go. Chiropractors also have some theories and in some cases, the x rays to back it up.
All i am saying is that there is no single solution here. Who would have told me 2 years ago that my veins are blocked and my bones are misaligned? I was super healthy. Or so i thought.
Should i choose to stop searching after i was "liberated"? Believe me, i would if this was the case. But improvements were only partial. Is there anyone out there to tell me that that was my only problem? Is there anyone that can prove Zamboni or Flanagan wrong? Is there anyone that can make me choose between the two?
No. I can do whatever the hell i want. Until they have proof. Until then, everything is experimental and because living with MS is worse than death i am wiling to give everything that makes sense a try.
And of course i have no medical knowledge. I can only make decisions based on my simple logic. Not by putting my trust on people who take a shitload of money from me for doing NOTHING xcept from poisoning me. I prefer paying less money for SOMETHING.
Sorry, i prefer to listen only to myself.
And my body is telling me that there is something still going terribly wrong. Dr Flanagan was right in my case or so it seems. Is he right about all of us? Well, i am telling you that he never said so.
Seriously, after my "liberation" there were significant improvements, i swear to God. But some other things continued to deteriorate. And just because the "liberation" really helped, i thought that there might be indeed a chance i can fight this f.....g thing.
Now with what Dr Koontz SHOWED to me i hope for further improvements.
Please, check out Dr Flanagan's blog.http://uprightdoctor.wordpress.com/
I ll keep you all posted because every single piece of info really matters when you are blind.
My second appointment with Dr Koontz is on Tuesday afternoon. See you on Wednesday.
