Apology needed from Cheerleader and Cece

Pre-CCSVI this site had a good vibe. There was some good banter and some good friendships were started (I met 3 TIMS members in the flesh). Then, like the so-called Islamic State, a vile wave swept through. The zealots made big claims and beheaded those who dared to question the cure they were pushing. The site changed from a friendly bunch to something quite nasty. Old-timers like me headed to new pastures. Now the chickens ...

The procedure has been generally well tolerated by the patients, although some experienced bleeding and blood clotting.

$5.5M federal-provincial research report tested vein-widening 'liberation therapy'

A new study at the University of British Columbia has produced a "definitive debunking" of a controversial procedure that surgically widens neck veins as a treatment for multiple sclerosis.


'Anybody who knew anything about MS knew the idea was nonsense from get-go.'
- Dr. Michael Rasminsky, McGill University (neurologist)

My thoughts... ANY procedure or protocol that helps some ...

Dr. Alireza Minagar

http://www.ctvnews.ca/health/study-find ... -1.3315927

Dr. Alireza Minagar, a U.S. neurologist who specializes in MS and teaches at Louisiana State University, says he has always been intrigued by the CCSVI theory and the idea that the venous system has been implicated as a possible cause. He thinks despite this study’s latest findings, the concept deserves further research.

“While still in its infancy, CCSVI poses an enormously complicated idea, which requires more ...
