In addition to the affect of inversion flows on cranial and spinal venous compartments, my theory considers the impact of inversion flows and more importantly, the dissociation of CSF flow between the cranial and spinal compartments. Moreover, I added the impact of upright posture of venous blood and CSF flow into the spinal canal which everyone else ignored. In their search for the cause of NPH, Hakim and Adams only considered and looked for blockages to CSF flow inside the cranial vault. They essentially stopped at the foramen magnum. It has been my theory for over thirty years that one of the most likely places for obstrcution to occur is the craniocervical junction. It can also occur in the lower spinal canal.
Autoimmune and inflammatory condtions definitely play a role in many cases of probable or possible MS. Except for their role in cleaning up debris I don't think the immune system or inflammation play a key role in the cause of AD, PD and its variants, or HD. Cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, toxins and genetics are more likely causes than inflammation.
On the other hand, autoimmune-inflammatory conditions play a role in connective tissue disorders, vascular degeneration, endocrine disorders, bowel and digestive disorders, allergies, atopy, anemias, chronic fatigue syndromes, migraines, etc.
My theory is that, in most cases of AD and PD, when pathogens are found, they are more likely due sluggish blood and CSF flow. Instead of pathogens secondary Parkinson's is known to be caused by many neurotoxins such as alchohol, carbon monoxide, manganese, pesticides and cocaine.

And I was an gym junkie. Weight training with HEAVY weights. 5-7times/week. It was when I stopped going to the gym my condition started to decline and decline.
