With it in mind that all iron deposit imaging is still of questionable validity, as is "damage" caused by excess iron, it seems ironic that this example is raised as "kookie" at this particular juncture because blood letting really remains the accepted method of lowering blood iron content and does seem to suit that purpose very well!

Yet according to the MRV testing done at Stanford I have 90-95% stenosis in both lower jugular veins, some stenosis in the upper left jugular vein and plenty of black holes and lesions on my brain. All this talk about chelation, blood letting etc. sounds a little wacky to someone like me who needs to hang onto all the iron I have in my blood--I can't imagine getting any paler or lower energy than I am!!

On another forum I visit sometimes that I would call kook fringe alternative there's a woman who's talking about doing blood letting to expedite removal of Iron from her brain.
Looking back, you raised these same thoughts in another thread you started on 17 December. Why did you not just continue with the earlier thread? This seems to be the core problem at the moment. So many threads over-lapping or repeating - no basic order.
