Non-Surgical Options for CCSVI

Hi All,

I'd like to get everyone's input regarding what can be done to help with CCSVI for those of us who can't get the stent placements at the moment.

I've been reading that breathing exercises could be good for vasolidation, as well as b3/niacin, and possibly even LDN. Anyone more knowledgeable please correct me if I'm wrong with any of these and add any more information you have if possible (diet/exercise/etc)

Almost off topic: Radiologist and some thoughts

Hi all.

I feel a little down these days. I have gained some weight, 30 lbs, due to an antidepressant. I am a little confused, too. Not MS confusion, but rhetorical. Here are the facts:

Neurologists disgust me. I can think of no symptom they can really treat. Spasticity? Oscillopsia? Paralysis? Blurred vision?

How about diseases? What can they really cure, or at least help, without ruining the life of the patient?
MS? ALS? Alzheimer's? ...

Response from Neuro

Ok so I decided to email my Neuro information about CCSVI and MS and attach links to the research papers. Of course I let him know that I have already showed several doctors here at Yale who find the research to be interesting.

His response to me was "It all sounds interesting. We will discuss it at your next visit."

At least he didn't shoot it down and seems interested. My next appt. is in ...

Deep tissue leg massage


I have a good friend who is a RMT and she says that deep tissue massage of the legs helps people with MS because it stimulates blood flow to otherwise relatively idle muscles. Her argument is that it might improve things but certainly can't hurt.

Does anyone have any views or experience on the topic?
