Remember that Trojan hourse story? We have to use every opportunity to get the word out
Here is what I sent the reporters directly:
There is a new way to treat MS - as a vascular disease, with an easy fix - stents.
I just posted a comment on your article, about a recent and radical shift in research which fingers blocked jugulars, a mechanical problem, as either the cause, or a strong co-factor in MS. I am one of only 60 pioneering patients who made it to Stanford in 2009 to get this corrected, with 3 stents in my blocked jugular veins.
I was at Stanford on 1/14/09 for my 2.5 mo. follow up with Dr. Michael Dake, everything looks great, and my jugulars that were 95% blocked, are now 100% open. And I have been seeing symptoms from 15 years of MS start to melt away.
The National MS Society has convened an international panel to review grant applications for this research. Proposals are coming from Universities like Stonybrook, U at Buffalo, Duke, and Stanford, to name a few. This story has been extensively covered in Canada, and is also gaining news attention in the US. When we were in Palo Alto, my husband and I did an interview with Carolyn Johnson, the anchor and health specialist for Bay Area ABC 7.
Thought I'd give you heads up. There is no telling yet how this may affect $8.9b MS drug business, or the makers of stents who may have a new market. But I thought that might be an interesting angle for you to investigate, and perhaps cover.
I'm just an MS patient trying to forestall disability, I have no vested interest, other than salvaging as many fellow sufferers as I can. So I'm taking the time to contact the media, and report on my own treatment for CCSVI. You check out my blog at http://healingpowernow.com
