Another Professional comments on CCSVI!

Postby Ruthless67 » Thu Dec 03, 2009 10:38 am

Hi All,

One more on board! Our diligence is paying off and some professionals are paying attention!
Back on October 29th I sent the following e-mail to Ann Boroch, author of the book, Healing Multiple Sclerosis, to see if I could get her slant on CCSVI, below is my e-mail and also her December Newsletter!!!!!

Hi Ann,

I purchased your book 2 years ago after seeing you on the Montel Show and have been on your Healing MS diet ever since and am starting to feel some improvements, albeit, not as fast as I’d like, lol. (Aren’t we all searching for the “Magic Cure”.) I continue to monitor web sites and news releases referring to MS and recently two have been of particular interest to me and I’d really like your opinion.

The first was a video where Montel Williams saw a chiropractor who does Atlas Orthogonal adjustments. Montel claims in the video to have had “almost instantaneous” relief from the pain in his legs and feet. Here’s the link to the video: ... outAO.html

The second is the article about CCSVI, here’s a clip from it.

Possible New Underlying Cause Of MS Investigated By Neurologists

"Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency," or CCSVI is a complex vascular condition discovered and described by Paolo Zamboni, M.D., from Italy's University of Ferrara. "Results of his preliminary study, which involved 16 relapsing-remitting MS patients and eight age-and-sex-matched healthy controls, showed that all the MS patients, but none of the controls, had chronic insufficient blood flow out of the brain." And here’s the link to the article:

There is a “This is MS” blog and it’s following the progress of a few MS patients that have already had CCSVI surgery by Dr Michael Dake at the Stanford University Hospital in California. The results are very promising.

Here’s that link:

Liberation Treatment For Multiple Sclerosis

There is a new discovery to what might be causing multiple sclerosis (MS). Dr. Paolo Zamboni, a former vascular surgeon and professor at the University of Ferrara in northern Italy has found higher iron levels in the brain clustered around the veins that drain blood from the head. The iron deposits have caused narrowing or blockages to blood flow to the brain. Zamboni dubbed the vein disorder CCSVI, or Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency.

His solution - a surgical treatment known as Liberation Treatment (like standard angiography but performed on the veins in the neck). Zamboni emphasizes that the Liberation Treatment does not make people in wheelchairs walk again. Rather, it seems to stop the development of further MS attacks, and in some cases, improves movement and decreases the debilitating fatigue that are the hallmarks of MS.

Even though the US and Canada are very skeptical about this finding and procedure I feel it is very viable to consider, especially for those that are more progressed. This can be a possible solution to halt the progression and eliminate some of the debilitating symptoms.

Dr. Zamboni doesn't exactly know why those with MS have this excess iron. I feel it has to do with lifestyle habits that create infection and inflammation in the body. Just as arteries in the heart get clogged so can the veins if poor nutrition, lack of exercise, excess heavy metal exposure, and stress are not neutralized.

To hear his interview - click on the link below. ... ?s_name=W5

Thank you to all those that have supported my work and spread my message to help the masses regain vibrant health!

(I find this exciting because this person makes their living from the diet book they sale, and if folks get surgery for their MS, they might not buy her book!! Way to go Ann, thanks for weighing in!!! And by the way I'm on her diet and it has helped my overall health.)

oh dear. Zamboni knows why there is excess iron in the brain. She has the mechanism wrong. It's a congenital narrowing of the veins which leads to reflux of blood, slowed perfusion and iron deposition. It's not just some random iron ending up in the brain which then makes the veins malformed. That's bass akwards.

Can someone straighten out Ms. Boroch? I know she has a large following and this is just more mis-information on the internet. And, as Jamie knows..I can't sleep if some one on the internet is wrong :)

Thanks for finding Ann's flaws in her Newsletter. I'm on it!! I'll send a copy of your "corrections" to her right now.

I was just so excited to see her with a positive slant on the research!

I am so pleased somone wrote to Ann Boroch on ccsvi to see what she could contribute to this hot new topic. Her work and book are so important for all of us with MS, so even in light of the new research, ccsvi, I would encourage all of us to keep up a healty diet, especially avoiding sugar.
I am an Americann currently living in Umbria, Italy where I am involved with Dr Zamboni and his partner Dr Salvi, hoping to have the Liberation procedure done here. Am 48 and have remit&relapse, over 9 yrs now. First serious attack came on these last 2 mths and was doing online research when I found out about the new research just in Sept! Talk about fate! We contacted these wonderful men who, so far, have agreed to treat me. This is my first post on this site, I will try to keep you all posted as we proceed.
This research certainly offers us all some hope, let us keep each other in our thoughts and prayers.

Hello Erika and thank you for such a prompt welcome. This is my first time on a forum on internet, so I am trying to navigate my way around this morning. I want to add to my other post, that it does seem that Dr Zamboni is being held up in some way with funding, am not sure what is going on, but waiting day to day for information. We hope to be in Bologna next week.
I want to encourage everyone to stay in touch with their bodies through practices like yoga and gigong and tai chi. It is so important to keep our foundation, our bodies, recieving the message that they are loved and that we are doing all that we can to help them heal...
I am a painter and writer and also believe that we must stay expressive in our souls, and to keep doing what we love and stay grateful.
a presto,

Lora, you might want to leave off Joan's "bass akwards" comment in your response! Priceless!

Welcome Zinamaria! I am excited for you and to hear more about your experiences with Dr. Zamboni and his team.

Thanks for the welcome Sandra...well we are off to Ferrara to meet with Zamboni on Monday. I am still in a relapse, symptoms abating after an IV cortisone treatment last week, the first for me, for I have not done any drugs whatsoever, but felt this attack, or relapse was too strong, over 3 months now, but better each day.
Will keep you all posted..
Love and peace,
