MS is not a disease of the modern times That's just something you feel strongly about? Because that's contrary to what people with knowledge of the field have found. Reading J. Murray's book "MS: The history of a disease" I was impressed by the number of past references about symptoms resembling MS...

MS is not a disease of the modern times and it is not just the hygiene that has changed in the modern times.

My question is quite simple: Why attempt to modulate a body's system that you are not sure what defect it has, if it is defective at all? This is irresponsible to me.

What a break through! A discovery that makes the body produce more of a useless (in terms of MS) molecule!

Have they been thinking about that for a long time or it was a "Eureka" moment?

Wow! I am shocked!

Sometimes CIDP sufferers also get CNS nerve damage (by the way, venous insufficiency has no known link with CIDP). Venous insufficiency could create an oxidative environment that could lead to CNS damage, but definitely, CNS damage can happen for a myriad of reasons except venous insufficiency. Let...

Imagine CSF as if it were a spring/coil. It absorbs energy by the pulse of the incoming arterial blood, stores it by moving towards the spinal column and pressing soft tissues and then gives it back, pushing venous blood out of the skull. If there is a blockage to the venous outflow, the energy will...

This group found a decrease in cerebral venous volume in MS patients compared to normal, whereas blockage in venous flow would be expected to induce vascular dilation and increased venous volume This is part of the picture. Let us not forget that the skull contains CSF in addition to blood and cere...

Relapses involving the spinal cord take a hell lot of time to be overcome. In the meantime, it could be helful if you started receiving physical therapy by somebody who know what they are doing so as not to forget how to use your feet/legs if you have any trouble with them.

Results prove that the company's blood test can help identify which patients are likely to have a relapse within 24-60 months.

I would want to open up any vein of my body, as soon as it is proven blocked. Doesn't this make sense?
