I just watched a January 27, 2011 interview Dr. Wahls gave to Katie Roche. She recommends using a TENS device for neuro-muscular electrical stimulation. She does so to develop atrophied muscles, especially on her back. By doing so she stimulates her blood circulation in the Central Nervous System (Chinese Medical Theory) She apparently is unaware of CCSVI, that the true cause of MS is a blood reflux which injures the brain and spinal cord. I believe that life stress and food intolerances triggered off her disease and toxic MS medication worsened her condition by poisoning her. She probazbly does not have a blockied vein, but veins which collaShe recovered by 1) de-toxifying from the MS medication which was poisoning her as well as food toxins 2) nourishing herself optimally with paleo diet food and nutritional supplements 3) progressive exercise and 3) neuro-muscular electrical stimulation which enhances blood circulation. She, like about 2/3 MS patients, probably does not have a CCSVI structural vein stenosis and cannot benefit from angioplasty.

I was in contact with dr Wahls in the past. She recommend EMS device rather than TENS. It works with different parameters- They believe that it not only stimulates the muscle but also stimulates the CNS. So, their concept has nothing to do with the blood flow, even though it must have an impact on it.
Dr Wahls did not recommend CCSVI procedure when I was asking her about it. She thinks just like many other doctors that restenosis will sooner or later occur that will require further angioplasty that will in turn causes more and more scars. So, even if CCSVI has some merits, we still do not have a good approach to treat it.
