The Swank Diet and blood flow in the brain

I'm posting this here because this video explains how saturated fat could reduce blood flow in the brain.

Treating CCSVI with antibiotics - new website

Hi there,

I've created a new website to help those who are trying to treat their CCSVI using antibiotics:

Through my journey of being diagnosed with MS, CCSVI and Cpn, I've relied heavily on scientific information I've accessed through the internet. Much of it has been pretty heavy to read...especially for a person with a neurological disease. Because of this, I created a website which is a companion to the excellent patient forum ...

small vessel disease and MS

Brain Pathol. 2016 Nov 19. doi: 10.1111/bpa.12460.

Age-related small vessel disease: A potential contributor to neurodegeneration in multiple sclerosis.
Geraldes R1, Esiri MM1, DeLuca GC1, Palace J1.


Abstract
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating disorder of the central nervous system wherein, after an initial phase of transient neurological defects, slow neurological deterioration due to progressive neuronal loss ensues. Age is a major determinant of MS progression ...

Free serum haemoglobin is associated with brain atrophy

Free serum haemoglobin is associated with brain atrophy in secondary progressive multiple sclerosis

https://wellcomeopenresearch.org/articles/1-10/v1

Background
A major cause of disability in secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) is progressive brain atrophy, whose pathogenesis is not fully understood. The objective of this study was to identify protein biomarkers of brain atrophy in SPMS.

Methods
We used surface-enhanced laser desorption-ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry to carry out an unbiased search for serum proteins ...

CCSVI in Meniere disease

Mèniére Disease (MD) is a disorder of the inner ear producing vertigo and hearing loss. Circulatory problems seem to be implicated. The researchers in this article compare CCSVI in MS patients with normal controls and MD patients.

The importance for this forum is that it shows really striking differences between the normal controls and the MS patients that I had not seen previously published, like the division of jugular veins in three levels (IJ1 - ...

intracranial hypertension in pediatric MS

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27909013

Children with MS were compared to children with primary intracranial hypertension. Both groups had comparable cerebrospinal fluid opening pressure, which is the pressure reading taken at the start of a spinal tap. It does not mention a control group but presumably both the pediatric MS group and the pediatric primary intracranial hypertension group have higher opening pressures than a healthy group would.

If this is true for pediatric ...

noam alperin astronaut research

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/spe ... -eyeballs/
Something strange has been happening to people who stay too long in space: The backs of their eyeballs start to flatten. Spider-web-like marks called choroidal folds crisscross the thin layer of blood vessels and connective tissue that surround their retinas. Their vision goes blurry, their optic nerves become inflamed. The damage can last long after the astronauts return to Earth. And scientists haven't been able to explain why.

Noam ...

Hypoperfusion of the thalamus is associated with disability

This article does not come from the CCSVI world, but from mainstream neurology research. Of course, association does not imply causality, but just association is very interesting.

Hypoperfusion of the thalamus is associated with disability in relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27865557

BACKGROUND: While gray matter (GM) perfusion abnormalities have been evidenced in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients ...

CONCLUSION: In relapsing remitting MS, perfusion abnormalities in thalamic regions contribute to ...

the thing about CCSVI

The thing about CCSVI is that it's obvious in retrospect. Not the link to MS, because that is unproven. But it is only basic logic that anything that can go wrong in the human body does go wrong at least for someone. Hearts get formed wrong, legs go wrong, red blood cells go wrong, retinas go wrong. So the idea that jugular veins can go wrong is only logical. The other obvious concept is that ...
