Sounds like they are on the right path though. I try to imagine what I would think having someone come to ME and say "yo, check this out, it's about your neck veins!" lol.

"okay, let me just toss out all my medical school and experience in favor of the latest cure du jour from Europe".

Anyways very good job, I suspect this will be the initial reaction but as long as they promise to dig on their own, the evidence will speak for itself....

She expressed specific concern that people who have autoimmune conditions might be more likely to react to a foreign body (a stent) than other peopl

I think this is a good point, even if MS is not strictly autoimmune and the body is reacting to damage, it IS an inflammatory disease.

Stents do induce some inflammation and it is a topic of scientific debate ... 05/25/2974

that research suggests that both vessel growth and the lining growth are induced inflammation caused by stents and this is possibly the reason for re stenosis. This research was on arteries that had plaque specifically it may not apply to us at all.
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you... This is my regimen thread Read my book published by McFarland Health topics
