CCSVI detection via dopler ultrasound is not a straightforward procedure. Instead of blaming Zamboni's "flawed" studies, they could simply do something more productive i.e. perform a neck plethysmogram. This would reveal that there is something really wrong with the flow.

SWI MRI perhaps. Free iron radicals will not be incorporated in ferritin but haemosiderin. Did they measure it? Nope... And let us not make matters more complicated that they already are. They could measure it in urine, not CSF. If they urgently wanted to measure something about CSF, however, they w...

Was I a Lyon hunter and I didn't know????? I am flattered to have such a fame, since I am neither a CCSVI fanatic nor a regular poster. Lyon, all forums require all opinions, I wish you stayed and kept writing. Good luck with whatever you do. Really, from deep in my heart. PS: My apologies, do you r...

Finally, a third doctor prescribed him Copaxone, which Walker says has kept him in remission - minimal symptoms and no progression of the disease - for the past 13 years.

Of course, it is essential, but I doubt it can improve the imbalance originating from improper neuron activation, which comes from an electrochemical imbalance due to the loss of communication between the lower motor neurons with the upper. Magnesium can't help that at all. Neither neurologists nor ...

The brain is like an apple: The outside red part of the apple is the brain's gray matter. It consists of the "heads" of the neurons. Damage there means death of the neuron as a whole. The inner white part of the apple is the brain's white matter. It consists of the neuron's axons, along with their i...
