I made a post a few days ago about the lack of CCSVI clinics in the UK (chronic-cerebrospinal-venous-insufficiency-ccsvi-f40/topic18426.html
). Thanks to the great responses I found a clinic in Bruges under Dr Jan De Letter.
I contacted them and the waiting list is very short. I can get the treatment within the next month. However, there are a few issues I need help with:
- I was recently diagnosed with MS (my first symptom was double vision at the beginning of the year and then some numbness in my legs 3 months ago). My symptoms are not bad (my legs are still partially numb and I can feel the ms hug every now and then). My father was diagnosed with the disease when he was 46, and by the age of 50 he passed away due to it. So I am doing whatever I can to find treatment. So my question is, if my symptoms are not bad, will anything show up on the CCSVI screening? The full procedure plus screening is quite costly (about £4,500), so I will need to take out a loan. But if I go for the screening and they cannot find anything then I will be reimbursed most of the money but I will still be stuck with a large loan that I will have to pay off.
- I refuse to go on meds as I saw what they did to my father. Instead, I am following the Swank and George Jelinek diets. I am extremely strict and have not cheated since I started them (I started the diets as soon as I was diagnosed). So if I have the CCSVI treatment will I need to have another treatment a few years down the way (I am assumming that the diets will keep my MS at bay)?
I need to make a decision within the next few days. Please tell me what you think.
