Osoyoos Times

Wendi described the instrument as similar to a “toilet snake” and said she could feel it moving through her body after it was inserted into a small incision at the top of her leg.



4 patients are mentioned in this article. Results as follows:
Since having the procedure done, she said she has more energy and feels more like herself.
“I think it was effective for me. It helped make improvements. I’m sharper mentally.”

Cathy lost the ability to walk due to MS and is currently in a wheelchair.
She said that since undergoing the procedure, she had regained some of her balance, her voice is stronger and her goal is to one day walk again.

She paid $9,750 US for the procedure and said the treatment helped lessen a numbness in part of her body, nearly eliminated a limp, cleared her head and improved a sensitivity to bright light.

he declined to talk about how the procedure has affected his life

This was published in the "Osoyoos Times." I like these smaller community news reports, there tends to be more details and less bias.

And the image of a toilet snake is rather priceless. :D She felt it moving once it was in, I sure didn't.
