Re: Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI)-

Yes, the procedure that I had in November 2010 in Albany, NY was quite good. Dr. Siskin ballooned my left jugular.

Re: Trigeminal neuralgia = MS?

I have suffered a lot of concerning symptoms for the last few years (after a viral infection) — tin...

Re: What is the point of seeking a diagnosis

"I am 40, a woman, and suffered brain trauma twice at age 12 as the result of falls. I also had a tiny bit of nerve damage a few years ago after taking an antibiotic to which I turned out to be allergic (cipro).

Re: HERV and MSRV viruses implicated. Temelimab works against them.

Another finding was that the antibody appeared to promote rejuvenation of deteriorated areas of myelin. What prompted researchers to make this conclusion was that a measure called magnetization transfer ratio remained stable in the last six months of the trial. A decrease in the ratio correlates wi...

Re: A new concept and treatment options for MS

"The battlefield that emerges is one of the power of patient fora on the Internet vs the power of the medical system. The latter sucks innovation and acts as a barrier to change." You are pretty much correct. "The question is now: How can the former help us to force change?" Force change? Doubtful,...

Re: Why the Paleo-Macrobiotic Diet Works

6. Homeopathic remedy Oscillococcinum by Boiron to head off a virus. IT WORKS (unless perhaps one is taking a toxic drug. Anti-biotics annul it for me.) Cost – 1 euro the dose, 1 or 2 doses will stop a sore throat, 6 doses maximum treatment over 3 days ($8). Vesta Thank you for this information whi...
