I am beginning to see that we need to have an accurate dx first, yes we have malformations and other risk factors yet we often don't have a dx that would stand up in court!
There are thousands of us that have symptoms that cross into all sorts of disease and to expect PTA or Diet, exercise and mind management to improve an unknown cause is, well I'll let you find your own words.
A classic example is how I am now looking Chiari Type One Malformations (http://chiarione.org/symptoms.html
) as the possible cause for my health issues and yes the package of PTA, Diet, exercise and mind management will support working with a dx of CM1.
My point is that we need Neurology to up skill and have dx's that will withstand the scrutiny and give us accurate outcomes for all and any of these treatments we are using!
Here we are wondering why the PTA outcomes are so varied, it is actually that the dx of the de-generative type is too loose!
And the cross over of diseases with a vascular component is yet to be understood and accepted.
