Which is what the opposition wants, FUD. So LumpC1 you're just as bad as them in my opinion in that you're encouraging that and getting us off topic.
Is this advertising/selling allowed here on TIMS?? ;)cheerleader wrote:Trish--screw the scientific facts....I'm cashing in! You'll be happy to know that Dr. Embry and I will be coming to your town soon, in the Vitamin D Mobile (solar-powered, of course!) We will be offering our proprietary blend of endothelial-strengthening herbs and vitamin D supplements for a low, low introductory price--only to MS patients!
But wait, there's more! For an additional $19.95, I will include an autographed copy of "It's Never in Vein"...the true story of Cheerleader. (There is even a bonus CD included) Dr. Embry will be speaking about his new position as the official spokesperson for sunshine. He'd better be asking for a "rays" soon!
I've seen the light. Thanks to all of the very smart men on TIMS for learnin' me!
I do want solid, closely scrutinized clinical trials. I feel CCSVI deserves at least what medicinal trials get all the time. I know- I am participating in a medicinal trial right now. I get blood tests every month, MRIs every six months, I keep a diary and have to track every symptom, additional medicene, etc. that goes on with me. I feel we need the same with CCSVI- structured tests, close patient monitoring and solid results.
I have not had a relapse in a year; however, my last MRI (taken three months ago) indicates two new areas of activity that were not there six months prior. RRMS does wax and wane; however, how much damage is really occurring in our brains in between relapses? Most of us are not getting MRIs done as frequently as I am right now, so it would be hard to tell.
I agree with mshusband- if I have a blood flow issue to an organ as critical as my brain, I would like it repaired, please. It can't be a good thing.
If the arguement is that we cannot credit every benefit the Liberation treatment offers- despite how astonishing some of those benefits have been for our brethren- without solid clinical evidence, fair enough; at the same time, how can we attribute every benefit that these people have had to a placebo effect without the same evidence?
I don't feel that it is right for doctors willing to perform the procedure to be shut down, nor do I feel it is right that funding is tight in what may be a life-changing event for all of us. If it has the potential to be a significant revelation in the treatment of this disease, it should be full steam ahead for all of us. We simply do not have the luxury of time- as my latest MRI showed.
