But why have so many of those treated later regressed? Dr Tomasz Ludyga, of the Euromedic Clinic in Katowice, who carried out the Scots’ procedures, offers an explanation.
“We can’t explain this entirely but we think when there is a blocked circulation some substances are secreted in the brain to protect it, which results in damage.”
He added: What we are looking at is a substance called Endoterin 1 and its levels before the procedure and after. After the procedure, the veinous obstructions are cleared and we think these substances disappear. And we can get some initial improvement in the body functions such as headaches going, feet warming, improved retina, balance improving.
“But if a patient, for example, had a disease for 20 years or more then you can’t expect them to be cured immediately. The damage to the neurons in the brain and the spinal cord means that the restoration could take several years. The feeling of the neurons has just started.”
