It's essential that people considering treatment understand that this is a new way of living-
Treating CCSVI is a holistic approach on the vascular side. Not just a vein dilation and you're done....
Thanks for continuing to promote this "holistic approach" to MS health. I'm one who managed to stumble onto my own healthy lifestyle approach years ago – way before my MS diagnosis – and I've been posting about it regularly ever since I found MS forums (mostly to dismissive yawns, I might add
). But I think that what has made the CCSVI theory sound most intriguing and most possible to me was finding out that my own (20 yr) routine so closely resembles your Endothelial Health program. Finally – a possible confirmation that I may have been doing something right with my body after all, and an explanation of why I'm still doing 'reasonably' well after at least 38 years of MS.
After living my own very similar program for about 20 years, I've found it hasn't cured my MS by any means, but it has definitely managed to optimize the general health of my aging body and minimize most all my MS-type symptoms. In fact, these days I barely notice the type of symptoms that are claimed for CCSVI (heat/cold intolerance, fatigue, brain fog, etc.).
So, keep reminding us.
