A quick question: In the patients you have treated with MS, have you noticed improvement in their pain and/or motor skills? Also, have you noticed if there is a difference in improvement in pain and/or motor skills between RRMS, SPMS, and PPMS?
Appreciate your input!
You must appreciate that I have only recently gotten into the depths, nooks and crannies of MS. I have previously treated them just like any other illness where one wants to ensure that the patient has no pain primarily. In this I have been extremely successful.
Most pains are structurally related and are corrected through providing balance to the patients' cranium and the rest of the skeleton.
I think very few pains, if any, are related to 'demyelination'. Many patients are told that their pain is due to MS and nothing other than analgesics can help them. I shall quote a few testimonials and some MSers may realise that perhaps the pain they are suffering is NOT related to MS:
"Many thanks for fixing my back last week. Agony to bliss in three days isn't bad! I'm always amazed that such apparently abstract treatment has such an effect on wellbeing. Suffice to say I remain in your debt and will continue to champion your methods amongst my more sceptical associates until they too see the light!"
"Thank you for making me feel 20 years younger! My sister, [name excluded] whom you are working miracles with in terms of her MS, gave me a birthday present of a consultation with yourself to see if I could benefit from rebalancing my atlas/axis. I am a keen squash player, but in the last 7 years have had considerable hip and knee pain, necessitating 5 operations and many, many visits to a physiotherapist to try to work out why I was experiencing pain and how to mitigate it. I really enjoy playing all racquet sports and do not want to give them up, but at times it was just too painful to carry on – not only on a squash court, but just walking normally was difficult. What I didn’t realise was that most, if not all of it was down to my spine/shoulder girdle and pelvis not being aligned correctly.
Now that I have been rebalanced, I actually feel amazingly different – no knee or hip pain and I feel completely balanced. It has put a big, big smile on my face and I am recommending you to some of my friends, who have not been able to resolve neck or back problems. In the last week I have completed a charity walk of 13 miles, cycled to my parents and back (35 miles) and played in a squash tournament – with no pain whatsoever!
I can see that your vision is a result of being able to see the whole person and deal with the root cause of what’s wrong, instead of applying ‘pills and potions’ to deal with symptoms. I wish that the rest of the medical profession would take a leaf out of your book – it works! "
I coud carry on and on with testimonials but just from these two testimonials some of you will probably realise that MS is not what you have largely been led to believe, It is perhaps more treatable than many think - without drugs.
Patients arriving give a history of pain which has stretched back 40 years. If an afferent nerve is pounding away millions of times a minute telling you there is something wrong and all you do is pump in some pain killers the efferent motor nerve which has also been pounding away millions of times, trying to correct the asymmetry, is finally going to give up and is eventually going to cease and bring on incapacities largely seen in MSers which even CCSVI appears to fail in correcting in a large number of patients.
Therefore early intervention to correct asymmetries is the key before any physical effects on mobility set in.
