Dr. Arata-importance of aftercare and lifestyle

Postby cheerleader » Mon Oct 24, 2011 3:02 pm

This is a very good interview with Dr. Bill Code and Dr. Michael Arata on CBC radio.
http://www.cbc.ca/informationmorningns/ ... treatment/

I think it's really important to note that Dr. Arata says that lifestyle, diet, nutrition, exercise and PT are just as important, if not more so, than venoplasty.

It's essential that people considering treatment understand that this is a new way of living-
That's why we wrote up the aftercare section on the Alliance site-

and here's the science behind it from the Endothelial Health program

Treating CCSVI is a holistic approach on the vascular side. Not just a vein dilation and you're done....
Dr. Arata and Dr. Code also discuss IVUS, valves, and other interesting topics---

I can think of some ways that successful venoplasty makes those lifestyle choices easier. For me, exercise feels very different, and healthier, now. I can exercise for longer. Nutrition is easier because I no longer feel a little nauseated all the time, and because my appetite is improved and my sense of taste is improved. (That's a weird one.) Sleep comes easier and I sleep better, with dreams, now. :)

Thanks for the link, I'll watch this later. IVUS, valves, and other interesting topics....

Hi Cheer,

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 :-D ). 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. :smile:
Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)
