I know the angioplasty for the heart is a different situation, but still I just feel the power of nutrition has to play a role, just as smoking and perhaps other things that constrict veins (maybe caffeine?) could either enhance or impair the CCSVI treatment results. Admitedly I am not an expert in this, but it just makes sense to me that somehow nutrition and CCSVI could go together. I know there are some CCSVI treatment patients who are taking certain supplements to reduce the risk of restensosis--I believe I have read things such as milk thistle (silymarins) and Rice Bran IP6 and a few other things would help the iron from sticking in the brain. I believe there was an artifcle in New Pathways about what supplements may be helpful following CCSVI, but I don't have the article.
