I'd like to get everyone's input regarding what can be done to help with CCSVI for those of us who can't get the stent placements at the moment.
I've been reading that breathing exercises could be good for vasolidation, as well as b3/niacin, and possibly even LDN. Anyone more knowledgeable please correct me if I'm wrong with any of these and add any more information you have if possible (diet/exercise/etc)

I mentioned those natural chelators on the endothelial health thread, since Jeff takes them. You must have missed it...now it's here on the iron thread as well. Thanks for mentioning them.
We've been discussing iron and its role in endothelial damage in the general thread- and I wanted to list the supplements in this protocol which are known iron chelators, these bind free iron in the blood thru the digestive tract and liver and excrete it:
Bioflavonoids (what gives fruits and leaves their color):
Quercetin (onions and apples), EGCG (green tea) and resveratrol
Phytic acid : found in whole grains, sesame, rice brain, seeds and nuts
Most important, a healthy liver! Milk thistle (silymarin) helps the liver cells handle all of the extra iron and toxins that come thru- outward signs such as petechia, varicose veins, rashes, jaundice and high liver enzymes all speak of an overwhelmed liver.
Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy 2009 for you and your dear wife,

I take the Alive Multi Vitamin with many other additional suppliments. I'll have to re-evaluate my daily intake and see what I can change or add. The only problem is that my husband and I currently are thinking of having another kid and I saw a high risk OB group to discuss my meds with them and they told me I should stop all my vitamin and suppliments...even the cod liver oil. I am very dissapppointed about that and I am going ot look into this in more detail. The crazy thing is that they told me to stop the vitamins but I could continue to do my once a month IV steroid and my once a month IVIG. Crazy that I have to stop what is healthy for me but can continue using something that is a medication. She told me to take a flinstones vitamine once a day that it is equivalent to the prescription strenght prenatal vitamins. I'll have to figure out what works best for me.
Thanks again for sharing that paper with all of us and for all your hard work! Your the best!
