This letter is in response to my query to Dr. Schelling, after I read his book, as to why his theory on venous insufficiency was not researched. If you recall, he was,I believe, the first to propose this idea. I reprint it here with his permission. Let this be a warning to us to not be beguiled by the current trials if they are simply a panacea to the grassroots movement of MSers.
Thank you for going through the pains of considering all this.
From 1981 onwards, I intended to thoroughly investigate the cerebral and venous pathways in autopsies after MS.
In 1982 and 1989, the Austrian ministry for research yet twice turned down my request for being allowed doing this.
Recently, I learned my requests were considered as an attack on the pharmaceutical industry.
In 1982, my boss in neurology and other leading colleagues of his, did their best to terminate my medical career.
Subsequently it proved ever more difficult to present any of my thoughts on MS.
Five years ago, however, helped by our two sons, a ten year old book manuscript finally saw the light of day:
The e-book you found at www.ms-info.net
became available on the internet – and it began turning the tide.
Dr. Zamboni (his main teacher in surgery had suffered from, and his wife then still suffered from MS) started a check of my theory.
He soon found out that most MS patients already benefited from dilating stenoses affecting their internal jugular and azygos veins.
Official MS research now turned up their touting of “animal MS”, of its experimental “MS therapies” and, most recently,
its attacks on especially the European exponents of operative MS therapies.
And their indoctrination has not remained without effect:
Most MS and vascular experts are still reluctant to just look somewhat more closely at the given evidence.
Fortunately there also exists an unofficial MS community.
